    11:00: chili and avocado, a square of Lindt 90%
    3:30: another square of Lindt 90% and a small container of raspberries
    5:30: ONE glass of wine, two pieces of KFC, a few fries and a spoonful of potato salad and a Kit Kat Chunky (I know, yesterday I said I was all done with them)

    Not avoided today

    11:30 – 7:20am

    I had a Professional Development day today in London.
    Boring Legislation stuff in the morning and then a Social Media talk in the afternoon. A “be careful what you post on Facebook” talk…

    They had danishes and donuts, I didn’t want any. I brought my lunch.
    My Daughter wanted KFC for supper, so I stopped and bought some on the way home.
    While standing in line, I felt so GUILTY and EMBARRASSED to be there…
    It didn’t taste as good as I remember…

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I’m reading back through my March posts. Trying to figure out what I did “right” then. That was the month that I lost the most weight (6lbs!). The differences included: less wine and chocolate, but more protein, avocado/egg salads, and coconut hearts. March is when I started using CHRONoMeter, I also tried to shut off my Macbook at 10:30 and be in bed by 11, BUT the biggest difference I can see is that I MOVED in March…I did Tibetian Rites, PFB AND I ran…

    Guess I gotta get my "Wicked Wicked Bumper" off the couch...

        • Thought I'd come out of lurkdom in your journal, too I really like how you put the 10 PB laws into the posts. I tried that once, but am too lazy to write them in!

          Love the pics of your butterflies. I need to post some of the hounds in my journal.

            I'll let you in on a secret: I have a word document with my "template" on it and I just "fill in the blanks"

              I had to supply teach in London today. Just for the morning. Good class.
              I spent the afternoon shopping for a pair of black leather boots.
              Seriously. The. Whole. Afternoon.
              I wanted just below my knee, flat sole (do you know they sometimes hide a wedge heel inside the boot?), NO bling/zippers/buckles/etc.
              I finally found a pair

              • I've decided that I should learn to like red wine.
                My sister suggested I start with a Gamay.
                I bought this one:



                I had a glass before supper. I liked it.

                Oh, I also bought 2 stemless red wine glasses.
                'Cause you've got to have the "right" glass

                    This one particularly bothers me.
                    Pulling an important concept/moment out of my journal and spamming with it!
                    Why can't we delete crap like this from our own journals?

                    I love them too. And they are much harder to knock over

                      I did not avoid the pizza. BUT I only had one slice!

                      I had to supply teach in London today 11:30 – 2:20.
                      Then I had to drive to St Thomas and work at a BINGO from 5-7:30 (They let 2 of us go early! The rest had to stay till 2am!)

                      I bought the pre-cooked chicken and raspberries and ate them in my Beetle before the BINGO.


                      You know, I've really been slacking off lately. My "Primalness" sucks. Can I even call myself primal???
                      No wonder I'm "stuck" at 141...but at least I'm not gaining it back!

                        You can call yourself whatever you like. We need to find what works for us. Mind you if you have a particular goal in my mind and your choices are not helping you get there - well, that's something to think about. It's certainly something I need to think about anyway.

                            maybe didn't need the tablespoon of ice cream or the drizzle of maple syrup - but I enjoyed them

                            The afternoon was spent doing “Home Improvements”.

                                Was it worth it?? I honestly can't remember when I last ate popcorn...which used to be several times a week...probably close to 2 years since.

                                I have to confess I have read all of Sophie Kinsella's shopaholic books more than once...nice light fun . Haven't seen the movie however.
