Day 52

It was a sad day at the Weaver house on Day 52, the Internet was off more than it was on. Saturday is a day late….better than a dollar short!

I added to my walk today. I did the usual, adding walking the track at the Neoga High School and walking the overpass on 57. Have you ever been to the Las Vegas strip? You stand on one end and while looking at the other you tell yourself, “I can walk that in 10 minutes.” That is because the buildings are so big they look much closer than what they are. I found the same with the overpass. I got there about 10 am so it was full sun too. I began hoping a car would come by fast so I could get a little breeze going….and a lift home. With the added walk, I got in a two-hour hike, which equals 840 burned calories and the reminder that I already had my foot in an ace bandage for a reason.

While I am on these walks, I have a lot of time to just mull thing over in my mind. I found my mind wondering back to the dreaded four-letter D-word; DIET. Why is it such a disturbing, disgusting, depressing, degrading word? I had an a-ha moment; because we let it. So I started thinking about it differently. It doesn’t have to be:





Think: Dumping Design Dessert Do

Important Interesting Increases It

Extra Eatable Exercise Every

Ton-age Treats Time Time

I also realized in my “eating history,” I never make the same mistake twice. I make it five or six times just to make sure… Thanks again to all my supporters. It helps to: Discuss Issues with an Excellent Team

Never laugh at your spouse’s choices….you are one of them.

I am In The Box.
