  Oh the glorious feeling of waking up and having sunshine come in the window.  It has been days and days since the sun was shining. 


    Now normally this would mean a bike ride!  However.......Rick is having terrible trouble with his tires.   He got into a puncture vine on our last trip.  He has changed the tubes twice.  He has gone over the tire with a fine tooth comb looking to see if he missed a thorn and patched the tires again.  Yesterday both tires were flat again.  He just bought the tires so it will suck if he has to get 2 new tires.  However until he gets new tires our rides are over unless I go by myself or he rides my son's $2200.00 dollar bike which would make us way to nervous.

   I need to exercise.   I am feeling so thick in the middle today.  Obviously I have not been dieting at all.  I am up 5 pounds.  I just can't seem to get into the habit again.  This happened last year at this time.  I think your body wants to start eating and storing fat to get ready for the long cold winter which is on the way.  I start craving comfort foods like the meal last night.  Salads just sound terrible right now.  Without my beloved spinach they aren't the same anyway.  Chili, casseroles, heavy stews sound sooooo yummy.  I need to fight back.  Time to get serious and hit the gym again.  Time to count points again.  Time to remember why I wanted  to lose weight again. 

   Sometimes I am so sorry I didn't get the lap band.  Maybe if I couldn't eat as much it would help.  I am not snacking and I am most of the time eating low fat, fruits, sugar free everything, but I am still eating too much and am not exercising enough.  I did so much better when I hit the gym everyday.   So with that in mind am I hitting the gym today!  Lord no!  Not on a Sunday.  It will be packed.  Tomorrow!  Well no.......I have an appointment to get my hair highlighted........the day after?    Gee, the sun is suppose to be shining and I want some fall pictures plus hopefully Ricks bike will be fixed and we can ride.   I am hopeless.

I am considering the lap band, but not sure if Medicare & Medicaid will cover it, plus for that I'd have to go into the no Surgeon or hosp here in my little town does it. Since I don't have  reliable transportation thet'd be a prob too. GRRRR
Have a good day.
