Wine & Cheese ~ 62nd Serving
Many weeks on Wednesday I devote a blog to whining.
Despite being a really happy, positive person, I do have things that annoy me at times.
I never let anything grate on my nerves for long but thought it would be fun to vent them periodically in my blogs.
I also feel that good things, the cheese in life, should be acknowledged as well. I’m even going to throw in a bit of dessert, a piece of virtual chocolate, something that made me laugh or smile just a bit more than normal.

I am most unhappy with myself at the moment. I logged in to my Sparkpeople account and was very disappointed in myself. I had set a goal to get the weight off by my 50th birthday…and I failed. Mostly because I never bothered to TRY to get it off. I grew very comfy with the ‘curvy’ me that so many men tell me they like. But I know it is not healthy and with high blood pressure and heart disease floating in the family, not to mention cancer of a few forms, I need to stop ignoring that my being a few pounds over weight is NOT a good thing. There is nothing sexy about poor health.
😦 I forgot my running shoes today. I don’t run, but I do love to walk and when I was shopping for good shoes the folks in the running store fixed me up with these saying it would be better for me support wise etc. I meant to bring them so I could walk at lunch. I have on my work tennis shoes but those aren’t supportive enough.
😦 I just looked up my nightly glass of wine to see how many calories it has, and I’m not happy. A 4oz glass (seriously who has a 4 ounce glass of wine?? that is a sip!) has 80 calories. I’ll not be indulging in that for a while.
🙂 To make it easier to stay motivated to get the weight off, the 3 oldest of us in the Diva Den are in a friendly little competition of Biggest Loser. Mom and Boo are doing it through work, I am going up against them at the home front. I plan to win.
🙂 I had such a yummy lunch today! Subway is just down the street so I opted for a 6 inch sub, building my own online to make it fit my calorie plan before I went to buy it. Gotta love technology
🙂 I love the perks of my job. Not only my own office, blue jeans is acceptable attire, but I also have a 26″ HD flat screen in my office. I’m munching lunch, watching the Reds game, and can watch all day if I like while I work.
🙂 It is such a beautiful day outside! I’ve got the office front door propped open, can hear the trains nearby, birds singing, this is really sweet!
