Getting on Track

I love all living things: people, animals, and plants. I am an amateur herbalist, and love to cook with and use herbs for all sorts of things.

My weight gain has happened gradually, and I'm not starving myself to take it off. Exercise is key with me. As the grandmother of seven, I find that weight no longer bounces off like it once did. I actually wonder if I really should be the soft pillow my own grandmother was that made her hugs wonderful! Then I think about the health ...

My weight gain has happened gradually, and I'm not starving myself to take it off. Exercise is key with me. As the grandmother of seven, I find that weight no longer bounces off like it once did. I actually wonder if I really should be the soft pillow my own grandmother was that made her hugs wonderful! Then I think about the health challenges that presents, and I get "real."

I have several circles of friends: my church family, always the first friends wherever we move, my friends at the Bernina store where I used to work, my chorus friends (the source of the gold medal), my herb club and gardening friends, and the walking club that started me walking some 15 years ago. I talk about Spark People to all of them.

A leisurely stroll can bring joy and has its benefits---but to lose weight is NOT one of them. To help keep your weight in check, you need to step up the pace to at least 3 miles an hour.

"Brisk" means walking as though you're late for the bus.

* Less than 3 mph is considered slow walking.

* More than 3 mph is considered brisk walking.

* More than 4 mph is considered very brisk walking.

You can calculate your speed by counting your steps for one minute-3 mph is about 120 steps a minute, while 4 mph is about 135 steps a minute! So let's get moving on this "Walking Wednesday"!

Thank you so much for the extravagant dinghy. The rain has finally stopped but is has shown up some leaking windows in the house that I am going to need to sort!

I'm slightly up weight wise at the moment - only 3-4 pounds but it is enough to mess with my mind.
Work continues to be busy but we have been interviewing for an assistant for me so within the next month I hope that someone will be starting.

I'm also struggling to keep focus on many things which is bringing me down a bit. I'm sure it is just due to workload etc but I have next week off work so hope to re-charge the batteries a bit and get my head back to where it should be.

Wishing you good health and a positive week.

*~*~*The Winner's Creed*~*~*

If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don't;
If you'd like to win, but think you can't
It's almost certain, you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you're lost;
Since out in our world we find
success begins with a person's will,
It's all in your state of mind.
Life's battles don't always go
to the stronger or faster hand;
But sooner or later
the person who wins
is the one who thinks....."I CAN".

Thanks for commenting on my blog. My dh knows how hard I am working to get those pounds off so he helps me. I am wanting to quilt but can't leaning back. ((HUGS)) Linda Kay
