July 31/14

The summer is half gone already! Every year the time seems to go faster.

Exercise-wise, I am continuing my virtual walk from Land's End, Cornwall, to John O'Groats, Scotland. I have now walked the entire length of England and am 20-odd miles north of the Scottish border. My goal is to finish this walk by December 31/14.

The summer is half gone already! Every year the time seems to go faster.

Exercise-wise, I am continuing my virtual walk from Land's End, Cornwall, to John O'Groats, Scotland. I have now walked the entire length of England and am 20-odd miles north of the Scottish border. My goal is to finish this walk by December 31/14.

I calculated my weight loss goals the first of June. I have always been too optimistic about how much weight I could lose in a given time. My new goal is to lose 5 lbs. every 2 months. If I can do that, I will reach my goal of 150 lbs. by the end of February, 2015. That is my goal. In the meantime, I'm enjoying getting back into some of my size 12 pants.

The absolutely best thing is that I'm still here, 3 1/2 years after joining Spark People, I have never stuck with any program this long, and I expect to keep Sparking for the rest of my life.

I have met some wonderful new friends on SP. We care about each other, and are supportive of the ups and downs of our lives. A very sincere thank you.

Oh, my goodness, yes!
Lucy has chosen her outfits for the first three days of school already, including shoes.
She has loved clothes since she was tiny.
She has long gorgeous hair but told me she is getting a trim next week when her little brother gets his hair cut.
We shall see.

The virtual workout area is a little bit crowded. My bright idea is to create a work out area in my basement.. I will miss being able to look out the window while I am exercising, but being able to keep things set up and have space to move around will be nice. One expense will be to get some additional wiring done for lighting and those things that need to be "plugged" in. Meanwhile it will be a tad cozy and the area has to be cleared between sessions.
As to the "POT", no problem with the tea, although I tend to drink my hot water straight up without benefit of tea leaves, herbal or otherwise. Yes, sometimes I flavor my hot water with various teas.. Have a great day. See you in the morning for sure!
Hugs, A.

DH is just going on with his normal routine and I honestly forget about it most of the time. Since he's a candidate for watchful waiting there's no rush, and he's made it clear he doesn't want to address it until we get back from our annual trip to the beach in Delaware, which we'll be taking Sept. 8-25. I'm hoping he'll decide to do the radiation sometime in the fall or winter. I really don't think of him as having cancer. I think of him as having a tiny piece of cancer in his prostate.

The best thing about the class is just that it's on my schedule three mornings a week. I don't seem to do so well at the unscheduled, self-initiated exercise.

Our minds are syncing. I was thinking of asking GOOZLEBEAR to join us. I will ask! I'm going to do some exercise after we eat. I did play ball for 20 mins. with the Border Collies today, and got in some walking. emoticon
