Just a quick reminder because I love you more than the sunshine loves the bees: ads on my site are not necessarily my viewpoints.
I am so thankful to have an amazing advertising company working for me, and even when as ad is not always what I might buy or support, it’s so helpful and keeps me in groceries so I can create wonderful foods for you. I will, though, be happy when the elections are over. I mean whew! I need a nap. Wake me up after November 2.
Today I thought aloud to my quite dapper husband, “You look nice, but I wish you could stay home all day and just lounge around in your underwear.”
My 20-year-old son in the rooms shouts, “Hey! I do that now!”
Progeny, thou art sufficient romance death.
Now what I had yesterday… First of all, here’s the plan I’m following and here is the introduction post to the Mid-Year Resolution Challenge. While you look at what I’m doing, be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled to give some ideas, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). I am, however, here with you to cheer you on when you’re so skinny you will have to watch slipping through the cushions of your couch.

Thursday, September 20
I ate this:
Breakfast: My favorite snack platter for a quick energy pick-me-up.
Lunch: Fresh-sliced tomatoes and onions
Dinner: Pizza scrapings/toppings from a Papa Murphy’s Cowboy pizza. So yummy!
Exercise: Walked and worked for 2 hours at the treadmill desk.
Notes: I love cannibalizing my kids’ burgers. He ran to Carl’s Jr. for lunch, and their tomatoes and onions are to die for. I think my favorite fast food burger is a Culver’s Butter Burger. Have you ever had one? They are delicious. It might not be a coincidence, then, that Culvers also hails from Wisconsin, my home state. On Wisconsin!
I also totally swiped the toppings off of pizza and have no guilt. I am so glad I stay away from the wheat; it makes me legs crawl all night. Boo!
What I learned:
Today I learned that being on my feet breeds more being on my feet.
Being on my bum leads to more being on my bum.
I have used my new treadmill desk this week, and you might think I’m really tired after two hours of walking 2 miles while working (I am normally sitting for 10+ hours a day working). The crazy discovery I have made is that the more I walk and work, the more I want to be on my feet. The more I sit, the less I want to get up to do something.
How is that for a paradigm shift?
So I am learning so many new things about myself.
I guess Newton might be right for more than his Fig cookies: An object in motion tends to stay in motion.
Who would have thought that?
