About my Blog

But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain

Weigh-in Wednesday

New Years Challenge @ Shrinking JeansNo change this week.

I'm a little bummed about that, but I suspected that would be the case.  I had two successful fasting days again, but my half days were more like normal days, and one of my normal days was a little on the excessive side.  And then there was an evening of snacking... Not a whole lot of "moderation" was exercised around here this week.

I blame the sleep-over birthday party on the weekend.  :)

This coming week will be a bit of a challenge, too, since we'll be spending two days out of town on a little family get-away.  Which means, of course, eating out and cleaning my plate.  You know how it is.  You can't really get a "doggy bag" because you're not going home, but you can't bring yourself to send a good portion of the meal to the restaurant dumpster...  I HATE that feeling of wastefulness.  So I inevitably eat more than I need to.

My 11-yr old virtually never orders from the kids menus anymore, so maybe I can convince her to split meals with me.  (wish me luck with that ~ that kid eats like a horse!!)
