Snow Bee

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Frosty Bee Yep, that's how I feel today, flitting from place to place, even though we have snow outside, I'm not stopping.

Today I added 9 more minutes, of brisk walking and such exercise...and it wasn't too bad. I'd like to get up to the mile and 2 mile, then 3 mile, I'll do it, but I'm taking it slow.

I love this time of year, to look out and see the snow on the ground, almost dread the spring because then everything's a mess and when you have a golden retriever living with you, you have to clean him off everytime he comes into the house. The mud, the soggy ground, not my favorite time of year, but on the otherhand, blossoms, tree buds, grass getting green...ok, maybe it's worth it.

Anyway, have a wonderful day, don't give up, we're still going forward!!


Barefootin' Day

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

emoticon Not actually in the physical sense, but mind-wise..I've decided to enjoy the day as if it were a nice, summer day, with the slight breeze blowing, the scent of flowers, and the feel of soft grass beneath my feet. One of those days where you just are so glad to be alive and able to enjoy all that God has given us.

Closing my eyes, listening to the birds singing, the wind through the trees, the sound of tractors in the field, everything that reminds me of happiness, and home-cooking. How wonderful to put oneself in that frame of mind, to be able to move into a place that makes you so exuberant you cannot believe that you're here to enjoy it.

What a wonderful feeling, and I'm going to carry this all day through. I hope you all have a wonderful Barefootin' Day ahead of you, too.

emoticon There are days when I just feel like I'm 6' off the ground walking, and today is one of those days. I'm not sure what brings it on, but I think looking at the sparkgifts I'd been given, helped tremendously and reading the messages....what a way to make someone smile.

Thank you, everyone, for your kindness shown to me, and for accepting me as your friend, I'm blessed and honored, both by your actions and am thankful every day for the friendship which is given.

I think that helps a lot on this little "trip" we're taking together, knowing that there will be someone there. I hope I help others smile as they do me. Again, thank you, now back to "CloudDancing"!


Happy Heart Day!!

emoticon Measure your Waist (monthly) 3/10/13- 45. / 45.5 - 2/26/2013
Measure your Hips (monthly) 3/10/13-52.5/ 54 - 2/26/2013
Measure your Thigh (monthly) 3/10/13-29.5/ 30 - 2/26/2013
Measure your Upper Arm (monthly) 3/10/13-17.75/ 18.5 - 2/26/2013

I'm sooo excited, I actually went down again on everything, how wonderful! I looked back from when I started and my measurements then were:

Waist: 48
Hips: 56
Thigh: 29 (think that was muscle buildup)
Upper Arm: 18

That's a total drop, so far, of

Waist: 3"
Hips: 3.5"
Upper Arm: .75"
Thigh: gained .25, but that could be due to the muscle buildup maybe?

Anyway, I'm really thrilled with this, it is definitely a HAPPY HEART DAY, for me. I hope it is for all of you out there.

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!!!


Do it right!

Sunday, March 10, 2013

emoticon I measured myself today and had actually gained inches, not a lot, but then I thought about it and realized I'd not measured in the way I had before. So when everyone's gone, I'll do it the right clothes covering the areas I'm measuring...let's hope it goes down.

I've been really adhering to my diet and exercise, so I'm hoping it does go down, heck I'd measured my thigh with my jeans on, and they'd decreased a half an inch or was it an inch, I don't remember, so I'm just keeping my fingers crossed.

I do hope you all have a bright and beautiful Sunday, I'm heading to bed soon, so just wanted to stop in.
