If you have wondered what this challenge is all about it has to do with making a change and focusing on that change for 100 days. It can be related to anything YOU want to work on: weight loss, exercise, housekeeping, reading, practicing, organizing...the sky is the limit.
After you decide what you want to work on you show up daily and post how you did with a "face" that indicates how the previous day went.
YOU CAN START ANY DAY OF THIS CHALLENGE! We would love to have you with us!

<157.4> Day two
Pam: You made me smile...mom ALWAYS had to have her clothes altered! I am still leery cutting the hems off the pants I have BUT I won't wear them as they are so might as well! I wonder if doing them up by hand (knit fabric) will work okay or if they need to be done on the sewing machine?
Gisélle: Hope the trip to take your sister home went well...know it was fun seeing her and not easy to say goodbye.
Karen: I can see why being on program might not be #1 BUT I have found that sometimes when I don't feel like I have control (pandemic) I take control of what I can...and that is how I am down on the scale. I am sure you will figure it out and that you will nip the scale climb in the bud while keeping the exercise up and being there for your family. Is retirement making it easier or more difficult to stay OP? I am glad your daughter is moving forward in a positive way.
Good morning everyone! Thanks for the wise words Cathy. I'm not sure whether retirement is making this easier or more difficult. Jury's still out on that one.
Yesterday I had oatmeal & a banana for breakfast and then at ~12:30 we walked to the train station and took it to Penn Station in NYC and then got on an Amtrak to Philadelphia to visit a restaurant called Zahav. It was difficult to get the reservation but yesterday was the day. They open at 5. We got there early & waited and were the first ones through the door! It was a delightful palette of flavors. They have a tasting menu you can get with or without a wine pairing. We opted for a bottle of red; Cinsault/Syrah/Cabernet | Chateau Musar "Jeune", Bekaa Valley - a Lebanese wine. It was amazing! Usually with tasting menus there's not a lot of food. Not the case last night. The Laffa bread was divine and there were 6 vegetable dishes for starters to enjoy with the bread. I could go on, but suffice it to say it was a memorable evening and a meal to remember. And the chef we were so taken with, Michael Solomonov, was physically present in-house so we got to see him too! We Ubered back to the station and trained back to NYC, and then to the Island, and walked back home. Needless to say I got my steps and the rides and meal were meditative. A very special day and night! Scale was down today too.
I love laundry hung on the line! I have new sheets for the bed I think I will put on today. Hubby had a dental procedure already this morning and there are stitches and some bleeding so he will ice and rest. Not sure when he will be able to tackle his leftover lamb shoulder. Not now, for sure.
Yoga tonight on Zoom. Will work on my pre-surgical paperwork this morning.
Good luck at the doctor Pam! I agree about the sewing machine. Waves to Giselle!
