Skippy .............are you listening?????

First off here is a picture of the newest grand, Amica Brennen Murray, she's absolutely perfect.

Okay, now down to business.  Can you believe I had this all typed out once and the blog moofy got me, so I have to start all over again. 

I took water to work today and thought oh boy this is going to work out just great......not, it sat there and stared at me because I forgot all about it.  So tomorrow I will try again to remember it is there.  I seem to get so engrossed in what I am working on that I forget about almost anything else.

Skippy, I accept your challenge except that I would like to put it off till Monday.  We have to go out of town this weekend for a wedding so I want to practice being good.  I did really well today and had my 3 meals and that was it.  Work is a hard place for me as someone is always bringing in something.  Tomorrow is Birthday Thursday.  The last Thursday of each month we celebrate the birthdays for that month.  I made some carrot./pumpkin muffins so that I can enjoy the celebration as my birthday was this month.  I know one of the other girls is bringing a cake so I wanted something on hand so I would not be tempted.

I do take raw vegetables to work each day for lunch and cleaned the junk food out of my cupboards a long time ago.  Even though I'm only eating healthy stuff it's the quantity that is getting to me. 

I can't tell you how much I appreciate all your comments and suggestions.  Just knowing that I am not alone is awesome.  You are all so special, God bless.


  1. Deal - we can start Monday. :) That is very smart to take pumpkin muffins in [so much healthier too!] Now I want a muffin. heehee

    One trick I learned about water is to have on hand a jug/container that holds 8 glasses of water. I bought mine at Rite Aid - but I am sure walmart has them - Anyway, I would fill it up and knew that I had to drink all of it during the day [home, work, back home] to get my 64 oz.
    I loved not having to think about it. Now tho' I don't drink as much water because I don't want to retain it in my lungs [dang double edged sword.]

    Your granddaughter is oh so adorable. I miss babies - and just looking at her sweet face I bet you sat there and held her all day. I know I would! Pretty name too!

  2. Oh what a precious baby! See, right there you are holding one of the very reasons it is so important to get it in gear and get healthy!! You want to be around to see that little angel grow up! I believe it will help you tremendously if you can get in the habit of drinking lots of water, and the idea of eating veggies any time you are hungry is a good one. I am behind you 100%, I know you can do this!

  3. She's BEAUTIFUL!

    About the issue not remembering the water, can you set an alarm on your cell phone to remind you every hour or two to drink some? I use the calendar thing with alarm reminders on my phone for a bunch of things like remembering my sons and my vitamin in the morning, remembering his allergy medicine before bed, remembering his and my antibiotics (we were both sick this past week) It would work for water too..Just a thought.
