Things Are Going Well, All Things Considered

Day 3 is going well.  I am amazed that I have not been hungrier or had more cravings the last 3 days.  And the plan is having its intended effect of taking my focus off of food.  When I am hungry, I drink a shake.  It's not about "what do I want to eat?" but taking care of physical hunger.

I did a little housecleaning this morning, but otherwise have been resting. I have felt a little twinge-y, at times, and my hip felt close to the start of the pain I had on Friday, but it never has fully fired like I did then.  Resting and hydrating -- that's what I'm trying to do.  We will see how I do at work tomorrow.

While resting, I have been helping my daughter with a wedding project.  I have cut out I cannot tell you how many fabric circles for a project for her wedding decorations.  I was glad to be able to participate and help her during this special time.  But my right hand is going to be sore tomorrow, lol.

I have been thinking that I need to get some type of exercise to keep from getting more flabby by doing what I am doing.  I will try to do some hand weights (things that will not set off my back issues), and after I have gone a few days without having the sciatic issue so bad, I will try to get on my recumbent bike with a very low resistance.  And get going on some core work, when I can.

That's it for today.  Things are going well, all things considered.


  1. You are doing amazing and should be so proud of yourself :) Have you ever read up on the Marshmallow test? It changed my perspective on how to focus on anything other than food, amazing read.
