COUNT ME IN
When the New Year made it's debut, Big Hair Envy, decided
So here's how it works. If you sign up on the South Beach site, and create an account for just $5.00 per week, you get all kinds of benefits.....like a daily newsletter, menu plans and a shopping list. You can also track your progress, and schmooze with your "Beach Buddies". The thought of joining was a bit of Déjà vu...like when you play with your Webkinz.
I saw all the other bloggers saying stuff like "count me in", or "I'm ready", "I'm scared, but I'll do it", "I'm sooooo ready to do this", and finally, "I'll have a beer because it's five o'clock somewhere". This is where I start to make the hard choice of jumping in with both feet. I decide to do the Atkins diet....not much different, but one I know will work for me once I commit to it.
Off to Walmart to buy a scale...a nice one. It measures body fat mass, and hydro stuff as well as pounds. Since I've gain 1/2 ton in the two and a half years since I quit smoking, I was sure that I had all those components. I spent a couple of hours trying to program the thing. Once I thought I was done, I kept getting a huge "E", which is short for ERROR.
Back to the instructions.....the scale kept wanting me to program persons 2 thru 6, and there was no getting around it. By eleven o'clock at night, I was back at Walmart, getting a cheaper scale....one that would allow me to be a one girl team.
That was Sunday.
I also bought all my meat, cheese, eggs and green veggies. For dessert I have a plethora of flavors of sugar free jello.
I've been doing two fifteen minute exercise sessions a day.
Now I can tell the Host of the South Beach Blogger
"Count me in!"
