Slow and Steady

I feel like I'm finally making progress, finally getting stuff done.  One by one I'm ticking items off my to-do list.  I haven't had to add much new.  It feels like I can finally see a little pinprick of light at the end of the tunnel.  I just hope it ain't a train!

I used to think that once I get all these projects done I'll be able to relax, but in all honesty, I think that's a myth.  The house will always need attention, as will the yard.  Hopefully not as much at one time, but there is no "all done" in real life.  I think realizing that has helped me relax and just focus on the task at hand.  There is no finish line to race to.

I fell off the diet wagon last week and I haven't been able to hop back on.  It makes me angry with myself ~ this Medifast food is so dang expensive.  I do well with it all day long, then I come home and munch on cereal, string cheese, crackers, and once, ice cream.  Totally undo the good I did all day.  I picked up some Dessert Gum from the grocery store.  I'm going to try that instead of real food when I get home from work.  At least I haven't gained back the almost six pounds I lost the first two weeks.

It was supposed to rain today, but now the skies are sunny and clear. The rain was moved to Thursday.  So I'm off to spray the yard with weed killer.  Our neighbors have quite a crop of dandelions, and they're starting to crop up in our lawn.  Everywhere.  Gotta try to nip that.

  1. I wanted to do a little yard work today, but the temperature has creeped up to 99....can't stand I nibble on cheerios these days, trying to stay off of peanut butter and crackers.
