Oh, oh, oh, my goodness!! I am in such a pickle! I started this weblog to help me get my %^$# together so that I could work on getting my weight down to the FINAL goal. I am now five pounds over what I was. What gives here, folks??
Okay, the rant is over. I just spent a week with my mother and brother and sister’s families doing visiting and family stuff in Philadelphia that needed to be done. The only thing I can say that is a common thread for the week is WHEAT. There was wheat EVERYWHERE. I gained two pounds in wheat weight. I mean, it was everywhere. I couldn’t fight it. I avoided sweets. I ordered compliant foods in any restaurants I happened to be in. But, mostly it was eating in family homes and there was SO MUCH WHEAT!!!!!

Good morning. I feel so much better now. I can see my ankles again. They were so swollen yesterday from flying and sitting in airports and all the unbalancing things travel can do to a body. The only time my ankles swell is when I fly. One of those nasty two pounds is off already, so I’ll bet by tomorrow or Friday, the wheat effect will be gone. Got some parsley, watercress and spinach to juice with apples. My juicing book says that is good for water weight. And I am so grateful I didn’t come down with a cold. I’ll thank the visit to the acupuncturist before I left for that. I’ll thank my acupuncturist, too.
Okay. So now I have to set myself to really working on this weight problem. What I need to do is increase the intake of those green vegetables. For this week I am going to drink at least one glass of vegetables each day. I am going to try to do some treadmill each day. Even if it is a Pilates day, I will also get on the treadmill. No one ever said I couldn’t exercise twice in one day, did they?
And so it goes.
