Consider Me Winston Churchill

Who, I might point out, was another pear-shaped loser.

But seriously, I inadvertently freaked out FitFunk and Beej with my post title the other day -- and I didn't mean to.

I said I was taking a break from daily weigh-ins for awhile (although I still see the value of such a tool), and I scared them into thinking I was taking a break from my weight-loss efforts.

Let me take a minute to reassure y'all that I may change tactics and approaches, but when it comes to weight loss, I will “never give in, never give in, never; never; never; never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in," as the big man Winston once said.

I needed to see peaceful images today, and I was happy when I spotted some daffodils in Central Park.

Tough day tomorrow, bringing MIL to the doctor's and a lawyer. Hope it goes well.

Goals for this week:

(I really can't believe I'm going to try and do this but what the heck -- it's spring, time to push for personal growth)

1) Get up early and get in a workout -- be it cardio or weight lifting. It just has to be something.

2) Walk to work at least four days

3) Eat on weight-loss portions

Hey -- isn't it amazing to think we may end this day with some kind of national healthcare program in place? I'm not 100 percent convinced this particular legislation is the best it could be, but I'm glad to see some kind of safety net put in place for uninsured folks.

I was a freelancer for a long time, and health insurance was always a big worry. It's just not right that people can be bankrupted by an illness or unfortunate accident. I'm glad at least that this should offer folks some protection against that (I hope, anyway).

  2. Beautiful daffodils. I will have to look around and see if I can spot any crocuses.

    Sending you positive thoughts for an easy day tomorrow. Hugs!

    Channeling my inner Winston Churchill (shouldn't be too hard as we share a birthday). "We shall never surrender."

  3. Just saw your comment. Thanks!

    I made the curry tonight, had it for dinner, have two leftover lunches and one dinner. It was great!

  4. I spent a lot of time in Central Park last week and felt the same surge of inspiration when I spotted the buds on the trees. It's about to get really pretty out there... not today, tho. today is just rainy.

    I responded to your comment, but will give you a full debrief very soon as I've been meaning to write about it myself.

    Good luck with the MIL situation!

  5. you're NOT quitting? :) LOL! I know, but I think this is the second time you've freaked me out with your "clever" titles!

    I'm praying for resolution with the whole MIL mess...
