Feeling Fabulous

Today was a fabulous day! I had a lovely, long chat with my wonderful mother, was granted a meeting with a woman I really respect and whom I think may be presenting me with some exciting and interesting opportunities in the future, and was even able to see my loving husband briefly for a very quick lunch break. It was just one of those afternoons that leaves one happy, contented, and inspired!

My eating was decent although I did somehow manage to sneak in a couple of celebratory chocolates. The exercise was good though! I am going to try to turn in at a decent time tonight in yet one more attempt to slip into a more regular sleeping schedule. One night I’ll get it right!

- 7 glasses of water
- 1 pan-fried banana and light peanut butter wrap on a soft tortilla shell
- 1 mug toffee nut steamed skim milk
- 6 inch sub on whole wheat bread with ham, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, green pepper, black olives, light mayonnaise, mustard, and pepper
- 1 ice wine chocolate truffle
- 1 orange cream chocolate
- 2 mugs chai tea with honey and milk
- 1 pear
- 1/2 cup corn with margarine
- 1 skinless chicken drumstick
- 1 cup macaroni and cheese with pepper
- 2 small Mandarin oranges

- 25 minutes of walking completed in 2 outings (10 minutes long and 15 minutes long)
- 40 minutes of the C25K program (Day 1 of Week 9)


  1. Nothing better than the fabulous feeling....hope it stays with you...
    Well done on the eating and training.

  2. I can feel you fabulousness:o)

    Thank you for you encouragment, it means a lot to me.



  3. What an difference a couple of enjoyable hours can make. It brings contentment but also a feeling of positiveness for the future. Wish we could bottle that feeling for the days when things don't go so well. Good to "feel" your happiness.

  4. Being able to enjoy those celebratory chocolates without guilt, making it a very normal and human thing to do, is key in overcoming some of the most common psychological hang-ups along this road. At least that's what I've found.
    You're doing wonderful and I couldn't be happier for your success!!!
    You've so got this, and it's so thrilling to witness.

    My best always

  5. P.S.---
    You know what I love to do? I love scrolling down your page really fast---it's like I'm animating your pictures and watching you shrink! I do it every time I'm here. I can't help it! You look amazing!

    Smiles my friend,

  6. awesome days should be celebrated, and why not with chocolate!!!

    Hope you have an awesome week!


  7. Sounds like a totaly fabulous day - and lets face it a couple of chocolates is just a nice treat - nothing bad at all.

  8. I'm glad to hear you had such a good day. Your chocolate and sleep are just normal life. I'm sure you're going to rock it! It will come in time.

  9. Still feeling pretty darned happy and your comments are sweeter than that chocolate was!

    Sean, you make me laugh! Thanks!
