It Worked!!! (And “The Marriage Pact”)

Going back on Points, that is.  :)  I am down 3.6 pounds!!  YES!

“The Marriage Pact”, the first book in the Brides of Bliss County series, is a deal on Kindle today–$1.99.  So, if you haven’t read it, here’s your chance. 

As predicted, I’m not going to get to the Q&A today, but tune in tomorrow.  :) 

More Q&A

Submit your questions on today’s comment section, and I’ll choose ten and answer them either tomorrow (it’s Weight Watchers day, so always a crapshoot when it comes to the blog) or Thursday.  Regarding Weight Watchers, I’ve been sticking to the points plan, drinking my water and exercising all week, so I’ve got my fingers crossed for a weight loss at tomorrow’s meeting.  :) 

I’ve discovered a new podcast that I really enjoy, and want to pass the info on to those of you who struggle with weight.  It’s called “Primal Potential”, and you can find it on iTunes or wherever you like to download podcasts.  This woman makes a lot of sense, and she has a 140 pound weight loss to back up her theories.  She follows the paleo plan, which isn’t my thing, but she’s an expert on nutrition and she has some really good pointers that will benefit anyone.  I especially appreciate her small-increment process.  She says if you go all gung-ho and get too crazy restricting your food and exercising like a maniac, you will lose weight–for a while.  Then your body will adjust to the new normal and you will have a MUCH harder time losing more.   Give her a try and let me know what you think.

Our weather is still overcast, but I believe we’re getting a shipment of sunshine tomorrow.  :)  I will be VERY glad to see it.

I’m reading the first book in Andrea Perron’s trilogy, entitled “House of Darkness, House of Light”, and can hardly put it down.  (I love that quality in a book–when it’s un-put-downable, I mean.)  The movie “The Conjuring” was based on her family’s experiences in a haunted house–I won’t be seeing that movie, by the way, because I’m allergic to violence–and the trilogy is her detailed account of what actually happened.  (Needless to say, Hollywood tweaked the facts a little.)  Since today is new-book day on Audible.com (I LOVE this site), I loaded up.  I swear, I must renew my “yearly” membership every other month or so, that’s how addicted I am!  I’ll let you know which ones I love.  :)

 

Around 1541, the present state of Texas was called Tejas, a Spanish version of the Caddo word meaning “allies.”
