This is pretty much my days. I will be adding exercise in on other days for the challenge trying for 8-9:00 or thereabouts. I do make lists for the upcoming days and list appointments on a dry erase board. I am probably on Social Media too much but they both work my mind and keep it active. I learn a lot in researching, from others and articles,blogs I read.

emoticon Reasons I want to lose weight
1. Because I can
2. Walk better
3. Relieve pains in hips & legs
4 Lower risks of disease(heart attack, diabetes, cancer)
5. Fit in smaller size clothing.
6. Sleep better
7. Improved blood work
8. More flexibility
9. Extend my life
10. Make my husband & daughter proud plus ME !!!

1. Chocolate be it cookies, candy, cake, brownies, pie
2. Ice Cream
3 Pizza
4. Pecan Pie
5. Almond Joy & Mounds Candy Bars

I will eat if it is available most times so my strategy is not to buy it in the first place. My husband is really bad for "on sale" items or 5 for $5.00 and brings things into the house. I am getting much better with not searching the pantry for these items and I have him take them to the basement where it is hard for me to get to with the stairs.
I have found that if I am overly stressed I might want some comfort food but not the trigger foods listed above. I would rather have biscuits & gravy, mac & cheese, chicken & dumplings or pinto beans & cornbread. Those foods seem to sooth me.
I rarely eat fast food but I do go out with friends occasionally. I research the restaurant first and stick with my preplanned choice.
I am most likely to reach for a "red light" food late at night. I am trying to replace those habits with having nothing or a healthy alternative.
