On Diets, Lessons and Etcetera

Thursday, June 12, 2014

OK, I know I'm not seriously overweight--but I am frustrated with the remaining four or five pounds I'd like to take off, for good.

So Monday I decided to investigate again a diet I followed back in the day that led me to shed almost 20 pounds, the Pritikin diet. Its current version is not as radical as it was then--it actually allows some carbs and dairy. At any rate, I downloaded a sample diet plan and so far it is working. I think little things like skipping my beloved chocolate milk (almond or soy) at lunch time and substituting diet iced tea, plus cutting back on carbs of course have helped.

Had my last piano lesson of the season yesterday and am supposed to continue for a month in July but I'm rethinking the whole deal. The teacher is annoying me and sometimes treating me like her little children students. Or maybe I'm getting paranoid. Or maybe I've just had enough of lessons as an adult. We will see.

Weather is really blah, cool, cloudy, prospect of flooding. Hope the weekend improves.

Almost finished with current book, "The One and Only." I think it's number one on the best seller list. Easy read, good story. Will be looking for another book soon.

Thanks for reading, if anyone is.

    Hi! Maybe you need a new piano personality might be in order.

    Hope the new jolt to your eating patterns does the trick. I did level 1 of Jillian Michael's 30 day shred today. Figured strength training was missing from my workout plan and this is only half an hour. I will try for 3 days a week, not everyday!

    Always time for another book! emoticon
