Food That is Food

The weather has turned cold.  Fall – like for sure.  I love fall.  I think I like winter  more, but Fall is the slow fade into winter.  It gives my heart some happy. And I take some secret pleasure in listening to most of the other people around me complaining about the cold that is…

The Money Dilemma

I decided to take another stab at getting 100 times more serious with budgeting.  I start every month with a bang, writing down every penny spent and every penny saved, but by mid-month, I am no longer being diligent and often throw up my hands in surrender. I have tried budgeting through several computer programs. …

100 Days To 2019

Bright Line Eating has been so kind to figure this out for me.  And it has been an Instagram focus for a day or so now.  Counting backward into 2019. So the me that likes challenges has decided to create one.  For me. If there is 100 days left, well technically there is 98 as…

The Comparison Lure

When God created the world and everything in it, He could have decided to make everything black and white.  he could have eliminated the sense of smell. He could have made every individual identical in shape and size. he could have made everyone with the same level of intellect and abilities. But  He did not….

The Talk on the Street

The talk on the street today is all about Hurricane Florence. It is strengthening. It is heading toward the east coast. It is scary.  It is bad.  It is going to cause havoc wherever it touches. But it is still WAY FAR AWAY near Bermuda??  I realize that there is a lot of ominous-ness about…

The Heat is On

At 1:48 pm today, this number was registering on my car thermometer as the outside temp. And I honestly believe it was probably felt as even higher than that; it was so humid and thick and still.  Many schools in the area dismissed early because their air conditioning units just couldn’t keep up. I am…

Through to Day 21

It is Weigh-in-Wednesday.  I posted on Instagram early today that I lost another 4.2 pounds. So excited. Here I sit in the late afternoon after an exhausting couple of days, eating a huge salad and feeling so content and self-assured. That is a total of 12.2 pounds in 21 days on Bright Line Eating. I…

Days Thirteen to Fifteen

Summer storms have been rolling through today. I love summer storms!  Second only to winter storms! As the summer ramps toward its end, my heart just leaps into fall and even winter.  And yet, I saw watermelon on sale today and will need to go get one (or two). Before it is too late! I…

How’s it Going? August 15-16

Check in time.  I am doing well.  Following my Bright Lines and keeping on track.  As I have read more of the book, I realize I can establish more Bright Lines if I feel they are necessary.  So I have been thinking on that. I also ordered a 5 year journal.  I love the idea…

August 12-14

I must say I am a bit apprehensive about weighing in tomorrow! I can actually say I feel at least a bit better?  I hope it isn’t all in my head.  I have stuck very well to my Bright Lines for the last 6 days, and I feel like the cravings are so much less,…
