Books and Blogs and Staci's Giveaway!

Not much to say today. I'm eating whatever with a side of everything. Reading The 30-Day Low-Carb Diet Solution and planning my menu for next week. Summer is here in H-town and I'm still nowhere near my goal. I'm also reading How Big Are The Pancakes? by Kathryn Krull and yearning to ride my bike off into the sunset. Someday.

Please stop by and give Anne H a big hug. She had a really tough day today (Wed.). I admire her strength and the work she does. It takes a special person to be a hospice nurse. Anne, I hope the rest of your week goes smooth as silk.

Also, if you have a chance, head over to Kelly's blog and wish her well. She's beginning her weightloss journey and could use a little motivation. Staci is spreading the word and having a giveaway of some super magazine subscriptions. Check out her giveaway here.

I was hoping to ride to work this week, but my heart is just not in it. I need a little motivation myself. Feeling  apathetic about everything. Poor Nellie, she just waits by the door...patiently.


  1. Tena, your second sentence made me chuckle. Oh dear.
    Even though your heart's not in it could you maybe do it anyway and then your heart might follow? Maybe?
    I'm taking my bike over to my friend's for her son to fix (the chain came off and it needs a tune-up) and then I'll join you for the rides. I may not bike to work but I will try to ride before or after work. I'll let you know if I do it or not.
    Hang in there, Tena! ♡

  2. Wow, Tena -
    Thanks for such a kind "shout-out!"
    PS: sorry to say that I won't be riding my bike to work with "the gang."
    That would be too much! (Since I sometimes drive over 100 miles to work!)
    LoCarb is a great way to go, with wonderful and sometimes drastic results.
    That's great news! I hope it starts a trend. LoCarb is the "new" Lo-Fat!

  3. As you know, I'm a PROLOer, too. Oh, and like Karen, the second line made me laugh out loud.

    I know this journey is different for everyone. Do you need a more rigid program that offers drastic, but immediate results? Would something with more flexibility make you feel less deprived with the knowledge that the timeframe will be longer? The great news is that we get to make those choices about what works for us.

    Take care (and I just read about your son - what a great kid you've got there - you are made of awesome and so is he)

  4. Thanks for the shout out and supporting my friend! It means more than you will ever know :)

  5. I wish I could ride a bike - Mine was recently stolen. Not only that but I'm in a high traffic area. There are trails but I'm not allowed to go on them without my dog lol. thats what you get for living in the murder capitol of canada I suppose. Anywho great blog! I really admire your perseverance!
