I went to Weight Watchers this morning.  They have re-vamped the entire program, changing everything.  It sounds like (with the exception of fruit) that they are doing the high protein and fiber, low fat and carbs... whole grains and fresh produce. 

I lost 2.8 pounds.  I feel like it was more, but I think that is because I am actually moving now.  I went back to the bike tonight.  It wasn't as easy tonight as it has been.  Usually the first 5 minutes are the hardest then I get into a groove and time flys.  Tonight I trudged through my hour and only made it to 8.4 miles.  I should have pushed to 9 miles, but honestly I was spent.  I gave kisses and hugs to Britt and Layla and drove home, hooked up to oxygen and laid on the couch for a half hour.  Usually after I ride I have this energy... not tonight.

I had a coaching session with a girl from BodyBugg today as part of the program Britt paid for.  She went over adding my calories and to be careful to get the correct values in.  You add food for instance...  Campbell's Tomato Soup, condensed.... then it gives the calories, carbs, fats and fiber.  But there are a gazillion different Tomato soups and they all have different values.

She also told me that while riding the bike is wonderful and it will help build muscle... it is not a cardio work out.  For me to have a cardio work out with my heart issues has to be done slowly but intensely and for short periods of time.  She said this will burn more calories than riding the bike (which I intend to keep up).  So, in the evenings after my ride at Britt's I will come home and throw the ball around, do "old lady" crunches, and walk rapidly in place. 
As a matter of fact, she suggests it just while I am watching T.V. instead of sitting, stand up and move.

Sounds good to me.  It was nice today at Weight Watchers there was a friend I hadn't seen in a few months.  She told me I looked wonderful.  Britt said she had a awesome compliment the other day too.... so we are doing the right thing. 

Tomorrow starts the holiday madness.  Yes, I have had our tree up for a couple weeks, and yes we have our outside lights up ... but tomorrow starts the finishing up shopping, wrapping gifts. Baking and mailing cookies and candy to my brothers, and making big plates for our friends and neighbors.  Britt said she would help me.  Baking cookies and making fudge and candy will be difficult not to eat it all.  So, we have made a pact.  We can eat ONE of each and then quickly package the rest.  I make gingersnaps every year that Bill LOVES and I told him he will have to hide them somewhere I can't get to them.  The same for all the chocolate and goodies that will be around here. 

I am not a drinker, never really liked it.  But at Christmas and during the holidays I make a Champagne Cocktail that is so good.  It is good champagne and pomegranate juice with a splash of orange juice.  Then sugar the glass rim and float pomegranate's in the bottom of the glasses.  It is so good!

I am thinking to try it this year with cranberry juice and float some cranberries in the glasses and leave off the sugar.  Diet drinks???  LoL

I have gotten about 2/3rds of the way done with my Christmas cards.  I need to run to the store and get more then get them in the mail.  I still have a few online orders to get done for Bill.  I love shopping online, but I get nervous during the holidays about shipping getting lost, or being late.  So, I had better just get it done.

I have a feeling this year I am going to be taking a few naps in between.  i am already tired just typing it.  LOL

Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
