Today's my birthday!! It's not one that ends in a 5 or worse...a 0 - haha. The next "0" for me will be in 2 years, and it will be a humdinger! Actually, I don't mind any birthday, because I'm tickled pink and GRATEFUL to be alive and have the rich and full life I do, with a fantastic family, great friends, a mostly tolerable job, and this wonderful blog community, many of whom actually bother to read what I write! I'm 58 today, which at one time sounded ancient - now it sounds like late middle age (not really, though I still feel pretty young). My kids love to tell hubby and me how old and dotty we are now, though I
Anyhoo - no big plans for the day other than surviving this Friday of 102+ degrees (some predictions say could go to 106 - ack!). Hubby, youngest son and I are going to a new place for dinner that's supposed to be good. I'm not going crazy, but I know I'm having dessert. Don't judge - old people such as myself have to keep up our strength. hahahaha. Tomorrow some friends are taking me out for breakfast, which won't involve any sugared items though.
I also want to note that when I said in the first paragraph that "I'm still not finding abstinence from my trigger stuff (of sugar and white flour products)", I am fully aware that abstinence isn't to be "found" - it's a tool to be WORKED. I had about 5 consecutive days about 10 days back, and then had a few cookies at a party - with full knowledge. No binge, but not abstinence. Any overeating I get into results from those forays into "just a bite" of something. Abstinence is on my planner - but not today.
I'll weigh in Sunday morning and report back. Earlier in the week I was down a couple pounds - if I can maintain that through until weighing, I'll be delighted.
Finally, thank you Vickie from Baby Steps V who actually remembered my birthday! You have a great memory, Vickie, and I appreciate it. ;) Have a great weekend, everyone.
