This sounds like it should be a depressing post but it’s really not. It’s just proof that old adages are true. So many times things get worse before they get better.
Good news first. I was very pleased when I got on the scale at Weight Watchers yesterday. I lost 1.2 pounds! That’s one and a quarter for the old folks who remember when we used fractions. It was the hardest part of being a Weight Watchers leader (at least for me) when we went to digital scales and had to figure things that way. I had only just figured out fractions! Yes, it’s true, I was terrible at fractions until I had to start calculating losses and gains at Weight Watchers. Maybe they should use that in their advertising…Work for Weight Watchers and learn fractions!! Well not anymore…you have to figure it by .4 or .6 and sometimes it’s a quarter pound and sometimes it’s a half pound. Very confusing, but Hey…I’m just glad I lost!
My plan of attack with my food must be working. I fixed up a quick crock pot full of WW vegetable soup on Saturday. Funny thing happened when I was ladling it from the crock pot to the plastic storage containers. Many times when I was working, I would make the soup and then divide it into 5 containers for work for a week. As I smelled it, my stomach suddenly seized up with the tension I used to feel when I was working. At WW we always talk about allowing food to have power over us. I think this is an example. It was over quickly, but a little scary nonetheless.
Now onto the worse before it get’s better part of our program today. 😉 You saw all of the wonderful progress I made with clearing my desk last week. I confessed that the view in the other direction was not nearly so good. I was working on that on Saturday. Unfortunately, in order to get it under control, there’s a lot that needs to be gone through and even though I gave it several hours of attention, it’s currently a disaster.
But there is hope!! Even though there are some errands I have to run today, I plan to get as much work done as I can.
Then I can work tomorrow on trying to get the area ready where the teeny Christmas tree will live, as it did last year! I’m getting excited about putting it up and getting a little Christmas Spirit!
I’m off to a busy day!
