I’m preparing to start with the new WW program. I’m not counting anymore now because I want a fresh start with the new program which is probably available online around December 5th.
From that moment on my intention is to follow the WW program strict till I reach my goal weight and after that keep following it for at least three months to stabilize.
I’ve read at some blogs that one are taking it easy till Christmas, to keep the focus of the goals or weight loss. For me I will try to keep on going all the way up to December 31th and continue on January 1st. I’ve had my last difficult meeting of this year yesterday so from now on it still will be busy at work but the pressure is gone till January.
My social life is a bit busy in December and mostly on week days but I will keep on trying to do at least 4 workouts in a week, 5 is better. I have a very unpleasant doctor’s appointment on December 8th which worries me already. I’ll tell you more about it round December 8th. I’m not ill so no worries there.
This weekend is all about taking it easy. Tomorrow there’s a 5K run about 5 minutes walking from my home. I intend to participate but the weather has been very badly these last 3 weeks so I’ll wait till tomorrow and see what the weather’s like before I make my final decision. I haven’t signed up yet, I can do that 30 minutes before start.
Yesterday I was home late from work so no work-out. Today I had planned a work-out but decided to rest as I’ve planned to do this 5K run tomorrow. I did clean my house however.
What’s for dinner:
Yesterday we ate taco’s.
Today I’ve made cheeseburgers. As you can see in my pictures of dinner lately, it’s all not too healthy. I can really improve on that one.
The Ultimate Diet Log:
By the numbers: 135: Percent increase in intake of sweetened beverages in the US in the last 30 years. 38: Percent decrease in milk consumption during the same period. 278: Daily calorie increase due to increase in sweetened beverage consumption.
Food Factoid: Frozen fruits and veggies are just as nutritious as fresh. In fact, because frozen produce is picked at its peak, it can be higher in vitamins than fresh produce shipped from afar.

Itunes shuffle playing right now:
Back to memory lane again. This year R. and I visited 2 Bruce Springsteen concerts. 1 in Holland and 1 in Turino Italy in July. At this concert Bruce sang Drive all night, a song he hardly performs live so this was a very special concert to us.
Had the day off.
Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.
