Early Bird

Those of you who read my other blog know that I'm struggling with some "emtpy-ing nest" issues. Last night we came home to a dark, quiet house, a very strange and unusual occurrence for us. We made the best of it, enjoying a cocktail-by-candlelight on the patio, then turned in early. I slept well but found myself wide awake half an hour before the alarm went off. Hmm..5:15 am, empty house, sweetie snoozing..what to do? Since there was no one to worry about waking in the Kids' Wing, I headed to my Mom Cave, usted off the treadmill, turned on the DVR and logged 30 minutes, burning over 200 calories rather effortlessly. Yippee! It felt great to move my body again and set the tone for what is sure to be a successful, On Program day!

I already fueled my body with a yummy breakfast sandwich..

and I have the rest of today's food portioned and packaged in the refrigerator, already logged in my journal.

My Monday is off to a great start, how about yours?

Have a Beauty-Full Day,

Bosom Buddies

Everything is better in pairs, don't you think?, no, maybe not the last one..wink...

I'm thrilled to report that my dear friend Susan has decided to join WW online and become my in-real-life weight loss buddy! She and I have traveled this road before, both of us losing weight on Weight Watchers as well as other commercial diet plans, but we both agree that for these last stubborn pounds, WW, and the buddy system, is the way to go!

I look forward to sharing recipes, POINTS+ values, and exercise tips with my dear friend and celebrating our successes together!

Have a Beauty-Full Day,
