Cool outside

Saturday, July 27, 2013

Wow, the temperatures have really dropped, it's mid summer and supposed to be only in the upper 60's, really? and it's cloudy out besides. Oh well, guess we can always dress up more better than we can remove more clothes...that tends to make other people shy least in my case. *L*

Our son just took off for the air show in Madison, or whatever it's called, they have a lot of WWII planes up there, and he LOVES anything to do with WWII, I hope he doesn't have any problems finding it. I wished my husband would have went with him, but at least he's going with our son and daughter to the Trace Adkins concert in Janesville tonight at the fair. I don't like country, so I'm staying home with the daughter's dog and enjoying some peace and quiet..though I was thinking of going to a movie. Still unsure.

Anyway, time to get going and do something, I was wrong, I did have a weekend free, YAY!! Have a great day! emoticon

Another Beautiful Day

Thursday, July 25, 2013

Wow, my blood sugar was really high last night, so I finally changed my insulin pump and it came down. I'm not sure why it went whacky like that, but 369 was overload considering the small amount I'd eaten for supper. I'm thinking there was a malfunction in the tubing, OR where it was connected to my body was just off. But I changed it and it came back to normal. I hate when things like that happen and I have no other choice but to change it.

Went for my walk today, another cool, beautiful day outside, I love to listen to the birds singing outside, it's so calming...I think I said that already. I've been reading my book while I walk and I love it.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and remember to spread those smiles around, it'll not only make you feel good, but may just be the saving grace for another person. emoticon

Smiles, smiles, smiles

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

I know some may have seen this before but hey I'm so thrilled about it, it still has me smiling today.

A couple bicyclists rode by me on my walk yesterday and called out "how's it feel to live in God's Country?" and I just was surprised, but answered, "Wonderful".

I looked around as I walked and saw the beauty of the wheat fields, the corn fields that I was walking past. The creek and listened to the water bubbling over the rocks, the minnows swimming in the clear stream; how the shadows of the trees danced each time the cool summer breeze blew through the branches. The wildflowers that grow along the roadside, and just the way it's so calm, so peaceful.

Don't get me wrong, every day isn't this perfect, but if you look hard'll find beauty in every day.

What a wonderful feeling to hand off to another person, I would love to thank that man, but he's long gone, but the memory of what he did, and how he made my year, will always stay with me. Thank you!

Starting again

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

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. emoticon (Hopping to it.)

ok, 3 months and haven't lost any weight, still at'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. emoticon

    Hello I came back (again) and I'm going to try harder than ever!

Don't beat yourself up dear, I think those plateaus are part of the journey. The fact is that you are still moving, you are still eating well and even if your number isn't going down (right now) at least your health is likely improving because you are staying active. I shouldn't be giving advice because I have been so off the wagon for months, but I know you can do this. You are strong and determined. I wonder how you can tweak things to stimulate some weight loss? Don't give up on yourself friend. You are still improving even if you can't see it. Sending you big hugs.

    I know how you feel and it is very frustrating. Sometimes we need a day to have our own pity party. Tomorrow is a new day .
Have a good night emoticon
