Half of January is history and I am pleased with my dedication. Have gone swimming 7 times ( that's $21 toward my first reward of $150 for a water proof mpg player) have not used my credit cards. Joined weight watchers last week and am progressing well. The new points plus program is very doable-especially when you get 36 points) Rachel only gets 26 points-score one for fat people. The only problem is the time commitment-going through the drivethru takes a lot less time then planning, shopping and cooking. Has cut into my stitching time. My resove to be more "present" at work is a work in progress. To be honest- 75 % of my patients seem to be sick-makes me want to hide in my office,bad social worker! Well wishing everyone sunny stitching days and thanks for supporting my blog.
