Making a low carb commitment last week really helped. There were a couple of times when I had to cling to my integrity that I did, indeed, make a commitment. I had added “no chips and fries” in a comment on that entry, so that helped when I was eating out last week. I lost 5 pounds, and I feel much more in control today than I did one week ago. Well worth it. I have lost a total of 73 pounds. Relosing the 22 pounds I regained. I’m thankful.
I’m working on my Margafesto. Yes. Really. I started writing it two weeks ago, but within the first paragraph, I found my mind rebelling…recoiling from the responsibility of being a better person. I am long used to doing things like water…following the past of least resistance. But I really need some change in my life.
Do you ever consider giving up all social networking? Or at least taking a break from the countless hours spent in front of a computer screen doing…not much? I do. I also think about giving up this blog. I’ve had it for four years…but I have been blogging for much longer than four years. I probably won’t give up Margaret’s Musings…I keep thinking that one day I will actually write in it. Write, as in words of substance, words that matter.
Yesterday, Ole Boy and I went walking on the TVA Nature Trails…my foot is a little better now because my doctor put me on a dose pack (prednisone) for five days. I have today and tomorrow left. My foot is not nearly as “better” as I wanted it to be. I keep hoping and praying.
Pictures from the weekend…I took uh-lot of pics. I will only share a few on this entry.
