    Kinda hard for me to post this early, but here goes.
    weigh-in at 189 still.
    Brkfst - one apple and cup of joe.
    I'll be doing a lot of walking today cause we are going to my grandsons church to be with him. Woooohoooo! My son and his family have been going to this church called Elevation. ha. Its suppose to be really modern. My daughter said for me to bring my ear plugs cause its loud. Gulp. My son and his family love the church. They started out with 6 people 2 years ago and are now running over 400 people. So it is attracting lots of young people. I'm anxious to see it.

    Judy, if you color your hair, I want a pic of the new you, lol
    I'm getting ready to do mine again too, but mine always turns out the same color. If I use blonde, brunette or black, it still turns some sort of auburn. My natural red highlights always trump store bought.

    I think I maybe did too much yesterday. Lower humidity and dew point and slight breeze made our 91 feel more like 84 which was wonderful.... so out I went... I even (gasp!) JOGGED a little off and on on my walk with Holly. Not long stretches to be sure and more of a shuffle jog because I can't take long strides, but it was still faster paced than the usual.
    Either I overdid it there or , since it was later in the afternoon with Holly instead of morning, then I backed it up with a walk with Bowzer within 2 hours... I think I didn't give myself enough downtime.

    Anyway, my back is aching, so today may be a mandatory slow stretch and Wii day.

    AM weight 177.4
    Breakfast
    spinach/egg dish with sauteed mushrooms added

    Lunch
    (1) 5" pancake w/ sugar free syrup and 1/2 sliced banana
    1/2 piece thick cut bacon
    1/2 c Chai Chia Oatmeal

    PM snack

    2 Tblsp Coconut flakes
    2 cups unbuttered popcorn(movie today)
    2 Tblsp blueberry craisins

    Dinner
    Tuna Salad stuffed Tomato
    1 Sm sliced avocado w/ lime juice

    have a happy Sunday, guys!

    well Kim I use the same stuff every time so there won't be any new me LOl
    and funny thing about the red I use a blonde color and even with my hair being almost white underneath it still adds some reddish coloring . no matter what ..
    It is time to color because my roots are showing too much ..
    I am thinking of letting the white hair grow in soon maybe in 5 years I will decide then
    when I got a ID from the town to carry mace or pepper spray they called my hair strawberry blonde

    I have picked up something from Dr. Peeke's blog. One of her successful patients says that she is not losing weight because "losing" implies that it's something she would like to find. She says she is "releasing" weight and that it will float away from her and be gone. I have decided I am "discarding" weight because I'm sick of it and don't want to look at it any more.

    So... I have a new low weight of 220. Discarding weight has made me happier. I feel better internally. I feel more confident and hopeful. I feel like I am being a better servant to God because I am taking better care of the earthly body he has given me.

    breakfast
    steel cut oatmeal and blueberries
    large unsweetened iced tea
    strawberry
    5 grape tomatoes
    8 little snacking carrots.

    Lunch
    pork chop

    I use the term strawberry blonde too, but it always reminds me of those old "old lady" rinses , Pink Mink and that funky lavender color one, Silver Fox, lol.
    But way back when, those were the only two to cover gray hair, unlike today where you have 30-50 shades to choose from.
    With the color you use, you could wear it indefinitely. It doesn't clash with your coloring because it's a soft shade. I really don't like when women "of a certain age" insist on dying their hair the super dark shades of their youth. Older skin tones just CANNOT handle black, dark chestnut, dark reds or vibrant sunshine yellow blondes.

    Especially since the hair is usually thinner too, so their scalps are dyed the same color as their hair. lol

    Lunch: 5 chicken wings from Kroger deli and an apple

    Dinner will be: Fresh corn on cob, squash, zucchini, onions and tomatoes sliced and baked with olive oil and a little garlic and parmesan, side salad.

    Cleaned out closet, grocery shopped for me and my sister, cleaned house, changed sheets, doing laundry and may iron if I can make myself. Absolutely hate to iron.

    Gonna go turn on TV and put my feet up for a while. Short work week ahead. Woohoo!

    Good afternoon, just got back from botanic gardens with my family. Well, except for one son who is on a road trip to New York City with some friends.

    Weight is up today, 207. That's no surprise since I was eating bbq chips.

    Today's food:

    Breakfast
    hb egg
    serving oatmeal, half banana, small hand full blueberries, 1/4 cup 2% milk
    cup coffee

    Lunch
    Pork steak
    potatoes
    egg
    small margarita

    We ate out after walking a few miles, and a couple hours, through the garden. The gardens were beautiful today. There has been much rain here this year. Was a beautiful day, overcast, low humidity and mid 70's! Was nice to share it with family. Though the teens were a little hard on me about talking loud at the restaurant, and picked on comments I made. Par for the course, but wrong course. I stood up for myself a little more than usual yet maintained compassion too. I've gone wrong somewhere!!! : - O Oh no! ;-/

    Oh Laura, your like me when it comes to chips. I told Carl when Kim starts the challenge, NO MORE CHIP, NACHOS or CHEETOS. I mean it. I'm going to take this challenge as a discipline.
    We ate lunch at one of my favorite BBQ places, boo hoo. Right now, I'm in misery. I ate almost all of it. I didn't do what I said I was going to do and that is take half of it home. I ATE THE WHOLE THING! My stomach hurts, I feel like throwing up and I'm so dog gone sleepy I can barely hold my head up. Grrrrr! I hope I remember this feeling next time we go out to eat. I am totally miserable, physically.

    Judy, I loved the blue/lavender hair on old ladies. I don't die my hair. I'm to lazy and I think its a big mess to do plus its expensive if you have to have it done. So if I turn white headed, so be it. ha ha! My dad never turned white headed so I probably won't. My oldest sister and my baby brother are salt and pepper haired, like my mother was. They had almost black hair so they are salt and pepper now. Me and my youngest sister are like my dad. I do have a lot of whites in my hair but you don't see them unless you look close. So don't look close!! ha ha

    Aus and all, I used the wash out non permanent hair color in light brown once or twice. The second and third time my scalp burned like crazy. They gave me a permanent itch that is diagnosed as dandruff ever since. When I try to non permanent color now my scalp just burns in pain. It bums me out because the color was so much like my own. I look older than I like to look with the grey patches at my temples. : ( Plus I sure wish I could get rid of the itch, it is always itchy ever since. Oh, and all shampoos burn and cause pain to my scalp now too.
