February 6th, 2016 Busy Saturday

February 6th, 2016 Busy Saturday

It was a busy Saturday. I was up earlier than I wanted to be, considering how late I went to bed-but I knew a nap would happen at some point this afternoon, so I jumped up and prepared for the day.

I had a location broadcast from  a grocery store's ten hour customer appreciation sale. I planned a snack in the middle of the broadcast, but I didn't pack one. Since it was a grocery store, I had options.

I finally made it home mid-afternoon in time to prepare a great lunch (grilled cheese on Ezekiel bread and homemade guacamole and chips), get a few things done--then hit that pillow for a much anticipated snooze.

My naps tend to go long. It did a little--so it really pushed my schedule a little closer together tonight. I had short time to workout, prepare dinner and get ready for my dj gig. I made it happen with a little multitasking. I was getting ready while dinner cooked.

"You should jump out there and line dance with them!" One of the casino reps was encouraging me. Uh, okay--but I don't know how!!

I quickly figured out to simply watch the others and do what they're doing. Sure, I was a couple beats behind--but who's counting, right? I don't remember ever line dancing in the history of me--so this was a first. It was exercise!

The gig went well. I'm glad it's done!

It was a busy Saturday. I'm proud to say, I'm about to lay my head on the pillow and feel that feeling that comes with knowing I did what I set out to do today. I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained abstinence from refined sugar for the 647th day in a row, I exceeded my water goal by four cups, I had a great workout and I remained in active/ongoing support with others.

I'll do my best to do it again tomorrow!

Thank you for reading and your continued support,


  1. Dancing is the best because it doesn't feel like exercise! I do Zumba a few times a week. Maybe now you'll do it more often!

  2. Line dancing eh?
    You certainly are getting out of your comfort zone
    Good for you

  3. LOL! I was not expecting to learn about your dancing gig. That casino rep must have been awfully cute or persuasive.

    Congratulations on day 647. Its such a major accomplishment many would not understand how easy it is for us to avoid but also how difficult it will be to follow through with our non negotiable forever without slipping up just one time. it would be slip just once over time. Making it a major accomplishment, taking a great mindset and commitment all the time, 24/7 forever is very difficult regardless how easy the non negotiable daily decisions become. If and when it does happen it has to be accidental and unexpected events so it is a one time rare occurrence when and if it happens.

    I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget just 16 days now. But I remained abstinence from refined sugar for the 779th day in a row. Not one bowl of ice cream, piece of cake or bite of doughnut. Amazing when I think about it. I am sure you can relate. I am not 100% absent since I allow up to 10 grams per day by use of 85% or greater dark chocolate, salad dressings and BBQ sauce. However I for the most part cut out all BBQ sauce and have avoided all the sweetness from artificial sweeteners for over 3 years now.

    I notice in comments section like when I posted a comment on Feb 3rd a reader asked for a link to my Blog. I provided that there and your more than welcome to put a link to my blog on yours Sean if that's possible.

    Have a great Superbowl Sunday!


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Thank you for your support!
