I think I told you several hundred times the following....how busy I am....how busy I am....how busy I am!! Don't I sound like a broken record? It's just that I'm so busy!! We all are. Doesn't that seem to be what everyone says when you ask them how they are. Whatever happened to the answer...."I'm doing great, and how are you?" There's a saying I heard once, that says, if you want something done, give it to a busy person. I find, especially at the beginning of the week, when I'm at my brothers for several hours in the afternoon and evening, that I often get more done in the morning hours when I'm home. I don't have the leisurely time to go about my day at a relaxed pace. I fly from activity to activity to get to everything that needs to be done.
With that being said, I felt sad when I read Kay's post about everyone being gone from the blogs. I am not a quick blogger. I'm a bit chatty ( really??). So for me to sit down and write on my blog, I know I'm usually going to take about an hour, especially if there are pictures. I reread, edit, rearrange. I like to play around with it. So often I say, I don't have time for that now. I'm trying to be more spontaneous, because I really feel that checking in, staying connected, and getting fresh ideas and thoughts, is really the key to making this lifestyle change a permanent one you can live with. And that applies to whatever plan you are following. A support system is critical to staying the course.
I just found Kim's blog, while I was over at Kay's blog reading her posts. I can identify with Kim. I have been "following" the Belly Fat Cure for well over a year. I'm embarrassed to say that I have only lost 15 lbs. Some of you have lost that in a few months. And I take full responsibility for my slowness. I have not been as diligent as some of you. Not with the sugars, but with the carbs. I admit, I'll dabble in a little pasta, snitch a piece of bread from the restaurant bread basket, eat some of those nachos. I guess at times I haven't been a good follower. But I still feel that I can contribute to the success of all of us. I keep on going, try to do better. I have kept off what I lost and I have made lifestyle changes that I stick to.
So while I have so much to say to you all about the graduation weekend, a few new recipes that I've discovered, and what's going on with the wedding plans, that will have to wait until a later blog. Today I just want to say, I value all of you, my dear cyber friends. You give me mental strength, moral support, great ideas and a lot of laughs. As the Stanley Steamer man says in the commercial.....I'll be here....I'm not going anywhere!!!.
Sending love and hugs, and a promise of some graduation photos, stories and plans for the bachelorette weekend coming up!!
IT'S A TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!!!
Thought for the day:
If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it. The more things you do, the more you can do. - Lucille Ball
