Back to Reality

I can feel a cold coming on. My head is all stuffed up. I wish I had not cried on Saturday night. Crying brought this on. I must start with preventative measures as soon as possible. I try not to whine but this is the 4th time I have been sick. I really need to get healthy again just to stop this getting sick so often! 

Work was work. Getting out of bed was so hard this morning. I could have slept all day. 

I logged my food today. I even sucked it up when I realized my lunch was 21 points for a D’Angelos Buffalo Chicken Wrap – darn blue cheese dressing. I must say it kept me full until about 5 pm when I walked to my other office to climb some stairs. The Race Up Boston Place is a month away and I could barely make it up all 38 flights.

Not bad I guess. I did not get in all the healthy guidelines – no oil, more veggies needed but I tracked. Baby steps. I have left over pasta to bring to work tomorrow. 

I am going to make some tea, probably Candy Cane Lane, and relax. I have so much tea since I did track down some Christmas teas. It is my resolution to drink all of the tea!


  1. You did really well tracking your food for the day. It's not easy being on WW I have been on it many times, I lose the weight and then it slowly creeps back on again. winter is a tough season to be on a diet, you feel like you just want comfort in the way of food, well that's how I feel anyway.
    The tea Candy Cane Lane sounds good, I have never seen it before ,where do you get that tea from? I am in Australia so maybe it's not available here. Keep up the good work.

  2. They are Christmas teas from Celestial Seasoning. I am not sure if they sell products in Australia but here is the website:
