I had been feeling a bit off track with Weight Watchers all week due to the stress and disorder of trying to get ready for our trip. I got about what I would have expected when I weighed in on Saturday. I gained 3/4 of a pound. Not bad but it’s still a bit frustrating. I know I have to be more mindful and make better choices. I think part of my trouble this week is the fact that I haven’t been eating 3 meals a day. Gotta get back on track with that. I’m not really upset. I’ll be weighing in early this week on Friday so we’ll see how we do. I just hope I’m able to find a meeting when we get to New Mexico. I can’t go for an entire month without a meeting.
I mentioned that there was a library book sale on Saturday. Initially, I was not going to go. I didn’t even mention it to Ralph or Ele. I thought Ralph would say no…To my surprise he said…”Call Ele and we’ll go.” So I did, and We did!
I felt that I restrained myself well. I had a really full bag which I weeded out to mearly a sort of full bag. Only six books, but then there was the one I had gotten at Goodwill just after leaving Weight Watchers. That’s in my pile here:
I think they’re a nice selection, but now I have to open my already packed book bag for the trip and make some substitutions. Either that or I’ll have to graduate to an “annex” bag. I was most excited to find A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrich. I recently read his Heading Out To Wonderful and I liked it. Also glad to find the Ariana Franklin book. It’s part of her Mistress of the Art of Death series. I’ve read the first, have the second (packed away somewhere I think??) now I have the third. Willa Cather’s Death Comes For The Archbishop is set in New Mexico, so that one needs to come on the trip with me.
I do feel good about keeping myself under control. My usual routine is to pick up whatever I think might interest me, then when I’ve gone through all of the tables, I review the books and see what I’ll keep. Many times I keep them all!! This time I put back 4 books so that was pretty good. I just have to keep myself from sneaking back down there today…they always have more books to put out and they fill in as books sell. That would be a bad thing…right?!
No actually the bad things are what I allowed myself to eat on Saturday. Not a good food day, but everything was written in my tracker and Today is a New Day!! I’ve got to keep myself on track. And it’s not raining so as soon as I tie on the old sneakers…I will hit the pavement! Thanks for all of your support with my walking!!
Happy Sunday!! 1-2-3-4–Here I go Out the Door!!
