My name is Judy I retired this February. I was flip flopping back & forth with my weight for too long. In Jan. of this year I started to be a MINDFUL eater. When I go out to a restaurant ( which is not too often ) I go on line to read their menu & pick out from home what I want. That way I already know what I will have as if I did not I would be prone perhaps to order unhealthy. If I go to a buffet before even picking up the plate I walk the buffet twice then I pick out my grilled meat chicken & fish or if not grilled will get chicken take the skin off & breading so I have some protein. Then the rest of my plate is filled with all kinds of vegetables, plus a ;large salad with no dressing on it as I would not be able to taste the vegetable in it's crispy form. I use to smother my salad with dressing, then there is a;ways plenty of fruit . I always order water no sugared drinks !!! I am also & still can not believe my attitude change on working out. I walk 2 to 4 miles a day, swim 3 times a week for an hour straight, then Zumba twice a week. I almost lost my hand due to an accident. So I have changed in my thinking so much about life. I try to be a MINDFUL eater & MINDFUL in my exercise !!!

    Thanks for the Sparkgoodie Judy!
    I think I'm going to retire most of my heels & switch to flats for work. I'm trying really hard to be patient & sit still, not an easy task for sure!
    You had an awesome fitness day yesterday! Keep up the good work my friend! Can't wait til I can join you!
    It's really hot & humid here too, but I've been staying inside all week.
    Take care,
    Nancy

    Yes...you are RIGHT on with the free weights. I do them once a week which probably isn't enough..but it IS something right? I much prefer the resistance bands and shoving around heavy furniture..ha..ha! emoticon emoticon

    Judy, I gave you the wrong impression. I work for Hospice Resale Boutique, all the profits go to Hospice of course. I do their windows and work in the boutique every Thursday afternoon over 7 years now. To be honest, I couldn't do what you did for 30 years. You are a true angel in the truest sense of the word. Thank you for being who you are! Hugs, fredie
