And I'm totally okay with it ...

It's been about a month of Wednesdays since my last picture so I decided to squeeze into my new goal shirt and have at it. There's VERY little change .... and I'm totally okay with it. I know what I've done and what I need to do and am making good strides.
 Between now and my next picture day (I've decided once a month is good, so we're shooting for March 15th) I want to:

  • Avoid grains. Every. fecking. day.  No more of this "one cheat day a week" nonsense that turns into at least two or three. If I feel the need to carbload for some reason, sobeit ... but I can't do it with grains.
  • Get off my fecking arse. I get it. It's snowy and cold and gross out. Guess what, Karen? It isn't snowy and cold and gross inside where you have a recumbent bike and dvds and a zillion or so other options.
  • Read. I know .... shouldn't be an issue for me .... but I'm not talking about my gazoodles of fiction books. I'm talking Mark Sisson, Nina Teicholz, and William Davis.  
  • Write. I really do mean to blog more than once every two weeks. I'll be better about it.

How's THIS for a change?

I have absolutely nothing to complain about right now!
Well, the weather .... but that's really nothing anyone can do anything about.
Things are going well.
Weight-wise not much is changing, but it's just a matter of time.
We've been trying so many recipes that have been successful! I mentioned the pork rind bread last time and since we've also done a frozen ice cream-ish treat, gummies made with sugar free gelatin, a pizza crust, crackers .... and not a single thing has been a miss! Of course, it means a huge need to stock up on cheese and cream cheese and eggs and ...... I got a surprise check from the state for a property tax refund and I won't have to worry about THAT either!!! Sunday morning we should hit thee ol' Mart of Wal and I've spent a while scouring their website and making a list of what I want and where in the store it is. (I LOVE that they keep track of their stock online like that!)
Every few days I ask John if he's sure he's okay with sticking with it and he always says yes. He says that on top of the fact that he lost 5 pounds in January, he just feels better in general. He's loving trying new things and figuring out how we can make things even better. I just love that he's jumping in and getting involved with the decision making ...
