“All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.” Havelock Ellis

Today was a sad, sad day…for my pants. As with all others who came before them, my favorite pair of jeans finally gave in to the chub rub. I noticed when I sat down on the couch to eat my dinner, I propped my right foot up on the edge of the cushion and suddenly felt a breeze on the inside of my thigh. Damn thighs, always gotta be rubbing together and ruining my favorite pants. All the more reason to be done with this fat, I’ll save a fortune on clothes!

I repeated yesterday’s breakfast (Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie), still delicious by the way. For lunch, I have several pre-portioned bags of soups stashed in the freezer, so I busted out a serving of Cabbage Roll Soup to eat while my daycare kiddos were sleeping. Dinner was a whole new recipe for the entire family. I tried out diet-friendly Salisbury Steak Meatballs. Judging by the only leftover meatballs, all TWO of them, I’d say the fam liked it! I paired it with mashed potatoes (using almond milk and salt, instead of my usual whole milk and butter).

Things went much better for me today, not so much for my jeans. No headache, not starving, great new recipe…only a few urges to cram a handful of the kids’ goldfish crackers in my mouth, but I stayed strong!

Well, I am nearly done sipping my tea, and I have already oiled up my feet and breathed in that heavenly Idaho Balsam Fir scent…good night, all.
