LAST CHANCE FOR THE CHASE TO FIND A HEALTHY ME

I have been overweight and obese all my life and now want to become healthy the right way. You can't teach an old dog new tricks and I want to change that phrase. I'm 68 and due for a change of lifestyle. I have 80 pounds to lose and I am going to set mini goals until I get there. I want to be around with my daughter and family and especially my two cats. I will need lots of help along the way.

To the people who love you,
you are beautiful already.
This is not because they're
blind to your shortcomings
but because they so clearly see your soul.

Good afternoon on this wintry Tuesday....it is where I live. The typical Northern, winter weather--no sun, grey sky, everything covered with ice, and cold. Fortunately, it's not below zero and there isn't a blizzard.

I am thinking about getting a scale today. Noticed that my clothes are a little looser. So this is giving me an incentive to buy that scale. And to keep pushing me forward.

Today is the 10th day of 100 days to getting healthier. I have been continuously moving around a lot more. Because of the icy conditions here during the winter, I am doing the Leslie Sansome walking DVD's, as well as dancing. This is the kind of exercises I can stick with, as well as have fun doing them and sing. Plus I get to laugh at myself too.

Yesterday I was in a lot of pain! Oh, the three herniated discs in my back were sending shocks down my arms and legs. I could not sleep all night. Now I feel like a zombie. Oh, I would like to crawl back into bed. But I am making progress on deep cleaning my house, so I am going to keep cleaning/organizing just at a slower pace. If I walk away, it will not be touched.

I am working hard to eat more vegetables. I eat chicken and fish two-three days per week, and lots of vegetables everyday. My stomach is much better now that I have cut out the coffee. My morning beverage is green tea. Making home-made soups have helped me feel fuller. Plus, the soups have taken away much of my cravings for sweets.

Being busy around the house, deep cleaning and re-organizing has taken my mind off of food. It feels so good to not be nibbling on this and that, only to feel guilty of over eating, as well as seeing the scale go up another pound or two. Taking pictures of my house before and after have helped me feel very pleased with the house. And, it is so good not to hear from name being called because my husband or children cannot find something. Now they can--that sure makes me feel the rewards of organizing.

Wow, this is a long note....I will close now, "HAPPY TUESDAY".

Today I am out of bed and deep cleaning my bathroom. I may be moving S L O W, but I am getting the job done. Only the linen closet now needs to be re-organized and my bathroom will be ORGANIZED PLUS CLEAN! emoticon

I may not be moving as fast as I like, but this time I am doing the job the right way. Besides, I am closer to having a clean, organized bathroom, than I was this time yesterday!!! emoticon

Wow, it's a brand new day, that is a gift given to you, a gift to enjoy and discover exactly what special miracles are in it just for you.

Oh, you get so caught up in all the attitude and mind set around us, that you do not see the real beauty that around in each day. We live in a country were we have freedom. I've been in several countries where I had to be very careful and aware of everything I did. I soon realized how great it was back home with true freedom. I am especially joyful because I can walk again. It may not be as well as I could before, but I can walk, just no running this time. And to have a mind that can figure out things, remember things and hold onto memories...wow, that is awesome.

Today I hope you take the time to see and discover all the special miracles that are in your day. You see, it's not about what we don't have, it's about what you do have. What is right there in front of you, all around you. Don't rob yourself of all the beauty in joy that is in today. Instead find it, embrace it and cherish it in your memories. Enjoy your special gift of today.

Oh, don't forget, I am grateful for the gift of your friendship and that's why I stopped by. Hugs!

Well, it looks like I am getting better, however, still have to take it easy for awhile. All this is teaching me something, easy does it. Just moving and doing something each day will lead to a giant step forward. It took me a long time to get this fat. I won't get thinner in a few days. Yet, I will if I just keep at it, little by little.

No, I may not be able to do six hours of heavy cleaning, but I can do a 15 min. clean-up, a 27 Fling Boggie, get 2-3 loads of laundry done and do my chair exercises, and feel like a million. Now that's awesome when I think about it.

So you may not feel like doing much today, but you can do something and that something just might be awesome too. Today is amazing Monday--No Excuses Allowed. Today is a Perfect Day to Just Do What You Can and Feel Good.
