Sifting out destructive thinking

Just a quick post here to say I'm still hanging in with tracking and such.  I've missed a couple of days of completing my logging from dinner and after in the last week.  No excuses, and I don't need scolding.  I know what I need to do and what is working well right now.  I'm enjoying tracking, and actually seeing how it continually impacts my choices, and also my exercise consistency.  I'm not perfect yet by any stretch, but I'm getting it slowly and surely.  I will admit that the two days I didn't complete tracking happened when I made a choice to indulge in something that would catapult me more than 300 calories over my daily allotment.  Again - I don't need scolding.  I know my BS factor kicks in and that's why I'm acknowledging it.  I want to clean this up to 100% of the time, but my overall ratio of "good" days to "less good" days has improved dramatically.  And I have certainly tracked on days when I'm over - but not too over.  I need to Sift Out the Leslie Factor (the title of my someday memoir!) in order to keep moving in the right direction.

We were extremely lucky with the storm - didn't lose power, and only lost cable for about 6 hours.  Directly across the street from us, the entire side of the street has been without power since Monday at midnight.  And it seems that the devastation at the Jersey Shore, New York, and other north east areas continues to unfold.  Prayers and thoughts to all who are coping with serious damage and vital outages.


  1. Glad to hear you came through the storm alright. Incredible to see the pictures of the damage...very heart-wrenching.

  2. I don't want to give you a reason to excuse anything because I know you are working hard on your plan, but truly my dear, aside from Jesus Christ, no one is perfect 100% of the time. The fact that you can ponder and fix your course is a very good thing.

    Glad you weathered the storm (ha! I crack myself up!) I always get reflective after an event like this. We are so blessed to have the things we have, aren't we?

  3. You are doing gret Lesile! Tracking is a wonderful tool and it sure helps me as well.

    Glad you did well in the storm. It's so sad to watch the stories about the devastation on tv. I like Helen become reflective and so grateful after thisng like this happen.

  4. I love the name of your future memoir! :D Glad the storm didn't hit you too bad. Hugs! :D

  5. You know yourself better than anyone else.
    I'm glad you came through the storm o.k. Have a great evening. Happy Halloween
