With the broken toe I'm not doing the walking I had anticipated. So instead of using that as an excuse to procrastinate, I focused more on the diet aspect of weight loss. I've been precooking food to get me thru because I'll be working again starting tomorrow.
    As a motivational tool I've been writing down the times for each cigarette and every diet cheat, no matter how small. (Yes, I used sweetened creamer in my coffee this morning... twice!! LOL) By just writing down each smoke, I am more mindful and having good luck waiting at least an hour between cigarettes!
   Despite the full time job, I intend to post something here at least 3 days a week.  So far I've added content to this site Stay tuned to see how it goes!
  Since it seems 5 to 40 people a day still drop by, I owe it to them to post some new content and to myself too. I started the new year of with a bang..... literally! Just after midnight I was setting off some fireworks for some kids and had several explode within inches of me when a stray spark set of the box. Fortunately I didn't have but a few "artillery shells" (about 7) left. I did lose some hair on my arm and singed the beard on 1/2 my face. I was just grateful no one was hurt; especially me!!
   This morning I managed to stub my toes and actually broke one. At least I made it thru the day without spending any money. One of my resolutions is to keep a journal of sorts and this is as good a place as any. My other goals are:(A) Lose weight and gain muscle ( I did manage to lose 15 pounds over the last year but still need to drop 35 and add about 20 pounds of muscle.) (B)Pay down my debt. I owe around 1900 in credit card charges and another 9k+ on my car (the car isn't as rushed because it IS helping my credit score)
   I won't be listing everything I eat or every tiny bit of exercise, but I will be sharing what I spend each day and how many hours worked (hopefully for pay!  lol)
