Comments and Mickey

If you don't read the comments at my blog, then you missed Kim's comment regarding my last post:

So here's the thing....you know the right stuff to eat; we all know this by now, so I would say don't stress about following a diet. And don't rule out all your favorite foods just because they aren't healthy; just have them in moderation or as an occasional treat. If you crave something and it won't go away, partake of a bit of it, enough to satisfy the craving. Exercise, I have come to discover, is key. There is no way around it. Find something you enjoy though as if you hate it, you won't stick with it. If you don't usually eat breakfast, start. So essential and it kick starts your metabolism. You probably know all of this though!
I'm not sure whether to say "Thanks!" or "ummm..thanks? I think." to what you said about me! LOL! Motivational but making you sick? Hmmmm

Let's break it down:

So here's the thing....you know the right stuff to eat; we all know this by now, so I would say don't stress about following a diet.

So very true.  I have no plans on following one particular diet, but will be using some of the tools/ideas provided by several.  One will be my little electronic point counter from Weight Watchers - not because I plan on counting points (I'm not), but because it helps make some easy judgements on items when shopping.  You can find these on Ebay, if you'd like to give it a try. 

And don't rule out all your favorite foods just because they aren't healthy; just have them in moderation or as an occasional treat. If you crave something and it won't go away, partake of a bit of it, enough to satisfy the craving.

Unless you're doing a diet that forbids certain foods (and there are many that do), then this is good advice to follow.  While on the "Curves" diet a few years back, the instructor always said that if you screw up...start over at the next MEAL, not the next day or else you won't be dieting for much longer.

Exercise, I have come to discover, is key. There is no way around it. Find something you enjoy though as if you hate it, you won't stick with it.

This is the one *I* hate to hear, but know it's true.  I don't plan on running off to a gym, but I can walk the dogs longer and I have "The Firm" steps for in-house.

If you don't usually eat breakfast, start. So essential and it kick starts your metabolism. You probably know all of this though!

If you're like me, you're just not hungry in the morning and what if you work shifts?  I had a doctor that advised that your FIRST meal of the day is important.  So instead of eating at 6:00 a.m. prior to work, I'll pack something and take it with me.

I'm not sure whether to say "Thanks!" or "ummm..thanks? I think." to what you said about me! LOL! Motivational but making you sick? Hmmmm

LOL!  Technically, I don't have to explain this to Kim as she knows what I meant.  But for those that don't - Kim doesn't make me sick but her motivation when I have so little does!!

The weather has been extremely cold here that I've been worried about Mickey.  For new readers, Mickey is one of my cats that insists on living at our old house.  Though I know the new owners do leave food out for him, I believe his shelter is under a neighbors shed or around a very weedy house that no one has lived in, in a very long time.  When I got off work the other day, I drove by the house; there sat Mickey.  I pulled in the driveway, and well....Mickey took off!  He JUST won't stay at the new house, he wants nothing to do with it. 

We're looking for a Plan B that'll get us through the winter months.

  1. I've always wondered - why don't you just keep Mickey IN the house so he can't run away back to the old house?
