That Spirit of Christmas and Christmas Vacation

I love Ray Charles’ song,  “That Spirit of Christmas”.  It brings happy memories of past Christmases.

One of the best Christmas movies and also the funniest movies of all time ( in my opinion) is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.  The song, “That Spirit of Christmas” by Ray Charles, begins at 4:15 in this video.

Hold On Tight To Your Dreams

This is another great song by ELO. It keeps me motivated. I love the beat and the lyrics.

Hold On Tight To Your Dreams by ELO

I like all kinds of music. Music makes the world go round.

I weighed this morning before breakfast. I was 140. Good! Yesterday at Shoney’s I didn’t eat any sweets. Can you believe it?

The last couple of days I have burned 250 calories each day on my treadmill. I would walk about 3 mph while listening to a song on my mp3 player, and then run about 5 mph on the next song, etc. I can run longer than I thought I could.

Don’t Bring Me Down!


This is my theme song, Don’t Bring Me Down by ELO.  I play it on my mp3 at the end of my treadmill exercise.  It is upbeat and very inspirational to me.  For more inspiration I have pictures of Victoria’s Secret models to keep me focused.  I want to be trim all over.

Well, I just weighed.  The scale reads 143.5!  I can’t believe it.  I’m not giving up, though.  This only makes me want to do better each day.  Today I’m supposed to meet at Shoney’s with my family.  My aim is to eat a small amount and no sweets.

I want this blog to be positive.  So I’ll continue in that way and say that on my last journal, I put down what I planned to do that day and I kept with 8 of the 10 goals.  Yay!!!!  I also have been turning down sweets left and right.
