Back to “normal”

Ok. Don’t tell anyone.

(looking over both shoulders)

As of today, we are not sick. Everyone is well, as far as we can tell, anyway. Braska went back to school today. It was nice for her to go, but I find myself counting the days to see how long it will take her to catch the next bug. We’ll see…

The diet is still going well. No faltering days yet. I’m at about 14 lbs for the current loss total. Obviously it’s slowed down, as is to be expected, but I’m going to hopefully be able to get back to my workout, or at least the treadmill, this week since I’ve missed some when I was sick and treating the sick.

Super Bowl Sunday is my first “day off” and I’m trying to figure out what kinds of things to take to snack on. Veggies are a clear choice, sans dip. Maybe baked chips? Thoughts? Anyone know some yummy but not too dangerous snacks so I’m not tempted to hit the really bad and very yummy stuff that will surely be there?

I’m hoping this will be a pretty uneventful week. I’d welcome that for a little while. Nothing much to write about would be ok with me. Maybe THEN I’d have time to write about the stuff that’s been bouncing around in my head for months… maybe.


  1. Go for the celery/cream cheese (low fat or fat free) and olives. You can munch a LOT without hurting your momentum.

  2. I've been big into raw almonds with dried cherries lately - it's that sweet/nutty flavor and they are good for you (not sure about the calories content though!)but they fill you up so you don't have to eat very many...

    you're doing awesome! I'm so impressed with your will power!

  3. Hope you all stay healthy. We're trying to get there.

    As for super bowl. Eat a big salad BEFORE going. And bring a water bottle full of water and ice. Even after you drink all the water the ice will keep melting so it should last awhile.

    "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels."

  4. How about chips and salsa? They're considered a "healthy" snack right?
