Satisfied Woman Here!

Well all in all I would call today a success on so many levels. I'm getting quite a few visitors to this site reading my blog and that's a very good thing. I've changed for the umpteenth time my layout and title (still not satisfied). Do you know what I'm really looking for? Illustrations like this I absolutely love her work! I love the style of the illustrations and one day I'll get enough money together and have Leelou design my blog for me, that's a promise I'm making to myself.

Food wise I'd say is somewhat of a success. I had cereal for breaky, an ice cream sandwich as a snack, I had a cheese sandwich and frozen dinner for lunch and then spaghetti and meat sauce for dinner. Now why do I call this a success because I never felt the urge to binge, except that time when I had to throw out some leftover mac and cheese w/wieners I so wanted to just gobble it all down but I didn't. I threw everything out (but the 3 pieces of wiener). I consider all this a small but definite success, even though its going over my allotted calories of 1500-1800 per day.

I did lots around the house, it's looking organized and clean. I still have stuff to do but I'm feeling OK with everything right now. It's like even though I went over the amount of food I was allowed for the day, I'm not letting it control my mood, I ate and moved on! Speaking of moving on, I've got to start exercising, at the very least I have to go for a walk every day. I live on a beautiful farm so I have no excuses I can walk all day long if I want. I should start small since I'm so out of shape, perhaps go see the horses on the hour (they'll appreciate it and I get a walk in) or walk around the perimeters of the house every hour, something that will make me move!

So I'll leave it at that for now, thanks for dropping by!

I like your layout now, but if you wanted something different you could set aside some money for each pound you lose and have a blog redesign be one of your goals?

@the better idiot! You are brilliant! I tell you absolutely brilliant! I think that's exactly what I'll do. It's $80 if I'm not mistaken (gotta get another look)and I can definitely lose 80 pounds so that's just a smart incentive. Perhaps $2.00 for every pound. I must think further but I love the idea (can you tell LOL).

Thanks for the comment!
