Ok, so today instead of doing the aerobics type exercise walk video, I simply went outside and took a mile walk in 30 minutes. Doesn't seem all that fast, but still, I walked instead of adding the aerobics. I think I'll do this until my next appointment, see if it really works in helping me lose some weight. Let's keep our fingers crossed. I'm debating whether or not to do the upper body exercises with the weights, not sure if that'll help or hinder.
Anyway, today's not too bad, I guess, the weather is fantastic, not too hot, not too cold, just right, sound like Goldilocks with the 3 bears house.
I hope you all have a wonderful day, and I'll see you tomorrow. (Hopping to it.)

ok, 3 months and haven't lost any weight, still at 259..it's frustrating to me, because I follow my diet, exercise 7 days a week, and nothing. I've been told it's because my thyroid is high plus the exercises I'm doing build muscle instead of getting rid of fat mainly, so now I'm going to be doing regular walking, no aerobic walking, just plain walking, see if that makes a difference. I'd hoped that by my birthday I'd be down to 200, a loss of 60 pounds, but heck, I'll be lucky to be down to 250. I'm sorry, I try not to get down on myself, but after starting in February and working my tail off, cutting down on eating, and exercising my tail off, I would have thought there'd be some loss, and not a gain!! I nearly cried in the doctors office today, I was that frustrated.
But I'm going to try to just do one of the upper body weight exercises and walk 2 miles, instead of the aerobics walking...and pray it helps.
I hope you all have a better day than I've had and an even better tomorrow.

Normally I'd be excited to be going away for a trip, but we've done it so much this year...I just want to stay home and relax, but like they say...no rest for the wicked. WAIT I'm not wicked, they need to change that saying.
I'm especially not excited to go sit in a trailer between two hills in a trailer court that doesn't get a breeze and, this year, has a ton of mosquitoes due to the flooding and mudslides that happened up there. I wish there were a way to prevent the mosquitoes from coming around, but as far as I know, there's not.
Ok, enough griping, time to get back to exercising and writing out the grocery list. You all have a wonderful day, and remember that smile!

Yep, it's supposed to be hot and humid again today, low 90's, wish Rick had opened the pool, but he decided since there would be only about 6 weeks of swimming left, it wouldn't be worth it...it would have been for those of us who swim or use it for exercising.
Oh well, what can you do, right, at least he did put in the window AC unit with our son, that was a relief, otherwise I'd be dying here right now. :D
Still am not ready to go away another weekend, wish we could have just one when we stayed home, I'm so tired of going away on the weekend. But at least, I guess, we'll be fishing, hopefully the Mississippi River has gone down, and the mosquitos aren't very bad....haha. We all know what happens when the waters high...mosquitos abound!
Oh, figured I'd put up pics of all our daughter's ponies she owns, just for the heck of it.
Sue aka Superstition of Brush Creek
Dottie aka Celebration of Brush Creek
Castiel aka Cas aka SCS's Country Supernatural
Mercedes aka SCS's Flirtin' With Disaster
Ty aka Country's Next Big Thing
These are those she owned, but has sold, Diablo was sold to her cousin, so she can visit him anytime; Shadow and Ari both had foals this year, and Thunder was sold to a friend of hers who normally shows with her.
Diablo aka Wilk. Mandalay Bay (sold)
Shadow aka Magic Celebrations Crowning Touch (sold)
Ari aka Ferrari aka SCS's The Next Hot Thing (sold)
Thunder aka SCS Countrys Thunder
Anyway, back to what I need to do today, get my lunch for now, so that's what I'd better get doing. You all have a beautiful day!

Ok, so we were home Sunday night, but least now I'm back to posting. The week went well, as for exercise...well..I had plenty..I was the one unloading nearly everything heavy..talk about weight lifting. *L* Thank goodness we bought our daughter a dolly for Christmas, it got a lot of use!
She did pretty good, she got a few 9th places (out of 21 ponies) in Driving with Ty (her buckskin) at the National Shetland Show, and a 3rd place (beating out the current World Shetland Champion), and was told by 2 judges that she deserved Grand or Reserve Grand in that class because the one who won actually didn't pick up his/her legs as high as Sue (our daughters pony); and the one who got Reserve was "hocking" in the back (her "knee" area was hitting together as she trotted). But, hey, it's a learning experience.
I'm so proud of her, she got a 7th with Sue, too, out of 18 I believe it was, and a 5th with her other mare, Mercedes, out of 12. And a bunch of other ribbons too. It was 96 when we got out there Monday and very humid. We had to walk nearly 1/2 mile to get to the arena 4/5 if not more times a day (thus my walking exercise); and it was fast paced, because we were trying to prepare for classes, etc.
Eating was tough to do, but I tried to keep in line there, too, and think I did pretty good. My husband and I are going up to the trailer Friday morning, yep gone for yet another weekend, but hopefully one of these weekends we'll be able to stay home. I have a feeling it's not going to be until mid-0ctober. NOooooooooooooooooooooooo. *L*
Anyway, hope everyone's been well, I'll talk to you tomorrow!
