A Wager

Let me tell you about a little wager between Jason and me. If I lose 35 pounds by the end of the year, I pick out the vacation next year, anywhere in the world. I don’t even have to take this trip with either of the guys living in my house. I don’t need to take their interests into my planning at all. (Can I really do that? Probably not but it’s nice to dream)

The mug is from our trip to Italy in 2008. I’m still trying to narrow down where I might like to go. Top 3 at the moment- Ireland, Greece, Australia,

What would yours be?

If I don’t lose the 35, Jason chooses and I’m pretty confident we’d be headed to Egypt.

This started April 1 and I’ve lost 3.5 pounds using Buddha’s Diet. But let’s call it what it is, intermittent fasting. You eat 9 hours of the day, preferably starting when you wake up. No alcohol, but no other food restrictions.

The book is good. It has some information about Buddha’s life and also the science behind some of the aspects of fasting and other factors like stress and exercise.

I’m sure that this won’t be my only diet modification, but it’s where I’m starting this month. This wager comes out of love. Last year I wanted to read a book a day (done and still going) and lose 50 pounds before I turned 50 (not even close).

Wish me luck! And tell me where you’d go! I love inspiration 🗺

    Good luck, Stacy. I would like to travel to Ireland and Yorkshire in the UK. The PBS show, All Creatures Great and Small have made an impact.

    I’ve wanted to go to Ireland since I was young because it’s where my mom’s family was from. Was making plans to go when COVID hit 😦

    Good luck, I hope you reach your goal!
