Warmer Spring finally here??

Thursday, March 28, 2013

The weather has been up into the 40's, yes, we still have a bunch of snow on the ground, but a lot of grass showing too. This is beautiful, but I can't wait until I can get outside and walk again. It's been a while since I've done that, but I'm going to this time. My book, my music, my walking..I love the country, on my mile walk I just hit the neighbors house (at 1/2 mile) turn around and walk up the other road and back home again, and it's already a mile. Not to mention there's 2 creeks that I can look down into as I pass, wildlife's so beautiful and I'm so blessed to have married the man I did who built me a house so we could have such a beautiful place to live.

Got my exercises in, am feeling great, and haven't felt out of breath doing anything anymore, which is Wonderful! I've been using those 3 pound weights with my exercising, I know it don't sound like much, but when you've never used weights or just soup cans, trust me, it's a LOT different.

Our daughters' boyfriend wondered why I wasn't using the 12 pound weights I just looked at him, then laughed. He was serious, but hey, no way could I lift 12 pounds over my head, 24 if I used both weights!! I asked if he was insane and he just laughed. He was joking around, of course, but I did actually think about trying it...but I like my muscles too much to put them through that too soon.

Have a WONDERFULLY SPRINGY DAY, and remember to SMILE at yourself once today!! emoticon

    Sounds like a nice place to live. I hated the country walking when i lived in the country. Scared me walking in the middle of nowhere. lol Some people really like it and find it relaxing. With the spring weather coming to you that will be great so you can get out and enjoy walking again outside.

As for the weights i don't blame you for not lifting those. I'd be afraid if one fell on my head too. Maybe try a bag of potatoes first as that sounds safer lol.

Have a Springy Day!

Yep, not too original, but hey, it seems like spring out, finally, so why not. Get up and look outside, it's only partly cloudy here, but MOSTLY SUNNY, more like spring then it's been, well, for the most part.

But watch it snow next weekend. Easter is almost upon us, and I thank God daily for standing beside me and helping me get through everything. The past year and half was hard, and I pray I never go through another like that again.

Got up, did my exercises, cleaned up a little, and have been having a wondeful day. I felt so good, someone I'd wrote to in regards to losing his wife, told me I've been helping him and that makes me feel wonderful.

That's the best feeling in the world, helping another person, so if ANY of you want to talk, or just need someone to listen..I'm here.

I hope you have a SPRINGY DAY!

    I just love the Easter season because it is not cluttered with " I want, I want" expectations. Just a time to get together with family.

Spring Beam Day

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Wow, my blogs are getting boring, not much added on here. I keep plugging away at my diet, exercises, now getting anxious to get out there and walk instead of doing the mile walk inside..though at least this gives me an alternative to when the weather is bad I can still do my video exercises, unless we lose electricity.

Anyway, not much happening on this end, I need to look over my recipes here to search for something good to make for supper with Chicken. I have leftover potatoes and corn, so those are taken care of, I may just bake the chicken (only way we ever have it, that or grilled) and have some stuffing with it, but I'm still undecided. I'm sure it'll be baked somehow, just how is the question.

Boy, never had that tough of a decision on how to cook anything, normally it's "toss it in the oven, bake, take out and eat", now I think about what is going to be eaten with it, how many calories/carbs/etc, all that fun stuff...such a change, for the good of course.

Well, anyway, have a SPRING BEAM DAY, everyone!


Missed Sunday, but good reason...

My brother's 50th birthday party was yesterday, a surprise party, and as soon as I got my exercises done, we headed out to help decorate for it, and by the time I got back, it was late and I totally forgot to post on my blog.

BUT I'm here again and have been working on upping my "walking" exercises to a good 3 times a week, instead of once or twice. I've even looked at several other videos, but I'm not too sure I'd last very long,'s tempting, I may try them soon.

I hope you all have a wonderful week, I'm planning on it, and remember your Goals!!

I'm getting so frustrated with my mouse, sometimes it won't work, other times it will and I can do absolutely nothing when it's not working. Why don't they make it so you don't need a mouse to use your computer? And it's not the mouse either, because it happened when I got a new mouse which was on my daughter's computer, so I don't know what's going on, but it's driving me NUTS.

Anyway, back to things at hand, it's a nice day out today, now if only all the snow would melt and I could go out walking and not worry about getting splashed with the water, but since I can't it's back to the videos. I have been doing the mile walk in 15 minutes, a brisk walk, which really works your body. But I'm loving it. I've been doing that 3x week, along with the other 3 videos I do every day. I'm ahead of my monthly goal each month which is great!

I hope you all have a great day and find something each morning to smile about, it'll bring a bit of light into your darkest days!
