Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Weakening this week....
I call mine "Junk in the Trunk!"
Ever hear the song, "I like big butts, I cannot lie?"
Now really, who likes a big butt?
One question I have NEVAH, EVAH, asked my husband....
"does this make my butt look big?"
Yep...the truth hurts...I'm not going there!
This week, being snowbound, has been much harder to stay "on program" for my flab fighting. Snow outside, flurries, events cancelled, makes me want to cook, bake, and tickle taste buds. Such activities are NOT diet friendly. Granted, I cooked up cauliflower, added Laughing Cow, chives, Molly McButter, and mashed it all to create something very low cal to eat when the munchies attacked.
Blackberry cobbler had to be made to go along with the crock pot of tasty chili. It would have been scandalous not to! Gee, the zukes are gone, I can't make soup. Oh look, there's cheese...cheese is good...with crackers, right? They were triscuts, that has fiber, but it was 10 o'clock at night when I was scarfing those down. Oh look, strawberry jam, that would be a good butter replacement!
See, what I mean? Once the ball got rolling, things went downhill fast. Last week, nothing tempted me. Why is this week different? Well! I'm thinking it's because I was not able to get my senior coffee on a regular basis all this past week. The Malibu, does not have 4-wheel drive, hence, I was told to stay home, which means, no coffee fix. ( I never make coffee at home, it's just not the same!)
Is this a stretch? Am I grasping at straws? Am I only able to be "good" for one stinkin' week?
Here are some quotes to inspire you, and me!
