Today is Monday 7th December

Good morning everyone!
The day has dawned cold but dry. The car is white where it should be blue, and the locks frozen. Luckily we aren’t planning to go out too early.

Today is The Day. Unlike last week when I was full of trepidation, I am looking forward to collecting the canvases of Maggie and Kizzy today. If I didn’t know better, I’d say Barney was looking forward to some company too.Β  Pictures will follow as promised.

Other than that, our day is free, though I don’t anticipate us being back until after midday. We have a little shopping to do and I’m thinking of getting a stewpack for dinner, as it will also cover tomorrow and Wednesday.

I text in my weight yesterday and have maintained from last week. It would appear that there will be no lee-way over Christmas, and we are expected to ‘weigh in’ on Sunday 27th.
I remember so well when everyone in group had a gain over the Christmas holidays. I also remember a group member many years ago who gained 17lbs in two weeks, despite sticking to plan. It turned out although she had been watching what she ate, she’d forgotten to make allowances for what she drank, and had made merry practically every day from Christmas Eve to New Year!
Hubby and I are not drinkers. Not exactly tee-total either as we enjoy a drink occasionally, but with him on meds and me simply not being able to handle it anyway, we are quite content to go without. This year will be slightly different, as I have bought myself a small bottle of sparkling wine to go with my Christmas dinner, and Hubby has orderedΒ  bottle of plum brandy………….. purely for medicinal purposes you understand.

Onward with the day then.
Take care and keep you and yours safe.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Those empty alcohol calories will get you every time!! I had a friend in college who was trying to lose her “freshman 15”. She would count calories religiously and subsist on carrot and celery sticks but couldn’t lose any weight. Come to find out she was drinking lots of beer! (and that was well before light beer was on the market)

    I enjoy a drink but an occasional one. I’m not a big drinker. Enjoy the wine! xo
