On a roll..

Hey all,
I am sitting at 1100 calories and have my dinner all planned out.
I did a 3 mile walk..and while it was a bit cool, it wasn't too bad.
I went to church and the music was stellar.
I got home and decided to do some sprucing up.
I washed walls upstairs today.
I don't think it could get much cleaner in here...we will see.
I think I found that ellusive cleaning gene my mother was born with, but has escaped me for years.
Loving the motivation though.
I will be going back to the gym tomorrow and be hoping for a big burn.
It will be 'elliptical day'.
So that usually gives me a big 600 calorie burn.
I posted over at the gathering place..
just simple ideas on how to save money.
My biggest one..
avoiding fast food.
On the money side, it just makes sense.
It is not a good money value...
on the weight loss side it makes even more sense.
The calorie value is awful.
For the 330 calories you spend on a small mcdonald's cheeseburger you could make your own 4 ounce hamburger with 93 percent lean  beef- 200 cal, a sandwich thin 100 cal, and a slice of 2 percent cheese for 60 calories..add all the veggies and pickles you want..It might be 30 calories or so more...but it's loads more satisfying and cheaper without all the preservatives.

I am on track and feeling better than I have been in a long time.
I was in a funk for a while.
I know it stems from all the way back to my trip home.
I will have to think about that.
I am coming out of it though.
Hoping you all had a great day.
Hugs,
Chris

Congrats on the great day and the clean house. I know having everything clean helps me feel much better and motivated, to do whatever I need.

I think it's a relief when we can put our finger on a problem... sort of gives us a head start on fixing it.
Just a couple of days ago I saw when and what I did to veer off course a little, making this whole thing sooo much harder than it had to be.
Nice to be getting back on track... I'm glad for you!

@ loretta, It's easy to do...get off track or lose focus. But we know how to get back on track, don't we.

@outdoor mom,

Cooking and planning save a lot of money. :)

Good on being so on track and motivated.

My mood has me lacking motivation lately. Although, I'm eating fine.

I want to add in a 'chore' time slot every day. Started on my closet yesterday. Seems messier. lol

Glad you are feeling so good. And thanks for your comment today. You are right. It is not about what people say, it's about what I do. I deleted that part. :)
