Weight Loss

Thursday, October 01, 2009

I think the jump roping has helped me jump start my weight loss. I weighed my self this morning and I am down 2 pounds. I am not going to change my weight yet because I don't believe it yet! Sometimes my weight will fluctuate. I will try to gingerly jump rope again tomorrow and see how my knee does. It feels better today but it is a little stiff.

    emoticon on the 2 pounds and I bet it is for sure that you lost them! Jumping rope is a good workout and I know what you mean about the knees! I have a right knee that won't let me jog so I just bike ride and walk....

    Jump roping sounds fun! Hopefully I will be able to do it soon. Sounds like it has started you down a great path! Hope your knee it better - what did you do to it?

Another Beautiful Day in NC

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

Wow, the weather is just great! I walked again today but did not do any jump roping because my knee and my back are both bothering me. I don't know if maybe the jump roping on the concrete is just to hard on my poor body or what. I think I am going to try and wear my sneakers to work for a couple of days and see if that helps. I am not sure what I will do tomorrow as of yet I think I will see how I feel. I know that I will walk because I refuse to give up some exercise!


Fall Weather

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

Today is a beautiful day in North Carolina. It is in the 70's and very windy. I walked for about 40 minutes during lunch today. I am hoping to go to the park after work for more jump roping and walking! Have a great day.

    Your weeather definitely sounds like fall! Ours was cold and windy. No fun to sit in the wind while watching football practice. I like it warm!

    Betsy I am jealous as I am sooo waiting for some cooler weather here in St. Augustine! Our humidity is down which is a good start. I think we are supposed to get some cooler weather toward the end of the week.

Jump Roping

Monday, September 28, 2009

Laura (makeRoom4Me) posted a blog and a challenge about jump roping and I used to love jump roping as a kid so on Saturday I bought a jump rope and on Sunday I tried to jump rope and oh man am I out of shape. It used to be so easy! But I am 47 years old! I managed to do about 15 but I could only do about 2 in a row.

Today my 8 year old niece told me that she can't do any on grass and I should them on the hard pavement. I was trying to do it on the grass so if I fell I would not break anything! So today I did it on the pavement and oh my gosh, I was able to do 48 and about 20-25 in a row! She is one smart cookie. So tomorrow I will try again. I was really out of breath after the 48 so I decided to take a 30 minute walk and tomorrow she promises to bring her jump rope so that we can jump rope together. She told me that I could jump rope better than her!

I have to tell you I was actually impressed with myself for the first time in a very long time!

    Duh, I have one too. Thanks for the reminder. Now I don't have any excuses when I can't go to the gym.

Try this. Jump for 1 min then walk around (keeping moving) for 1 min and then alternate for as long as you can. Doesn't sound like much but try it. You will see that a measly 1 min seems like forever...

Crazy Weekend!

Sunday, September 27, 2009

I should never say those words when people ask me what I am doing this weekend! I told my friends at work, nothing a quiet weekend except for cleaning the church. Famous last words! Friday night my cousin asked me if I would watch her 8 year old daughter and she ended up staying the night and then on Saturday I cleaned church with my brother, sister-in-law and the kids (well they did not really clean) and they ended up going to lunch with us and then I ended up babysitting my 12 year old nephew and my 10 year old niece.

We stayed around the house for a bit playing on the wii and then we ran some errands and then I packed up a bag and drove them to the mall and made them walk really fast with me! It rained all day and through the night. When I got to my sister-in-law's house it was about 5:30 already and they were both in a panic because the freezer in the garage was not working and it was filled to the brim and they really can't afford to lose all that food with them barely scraping by.

I asked them if they were sure that it was not the bulb so then we ended up clearing a space to move it out so that my brother could look at it and running to the store for a new bulb and oh gosh it was just crazy because they were so stressed out and the kids got stressed out but then my brother said lets pray over this and we all prayed together and you know what? We all calmed down and figured out that the freezer is working but the light socket is not working!

We did all go to bed exhausted though and I am still sort of tired. After church and choir rehearsel and lunch and the dishes I sat down and relaxed for a bit and then I went on a really good walk and here it is almost 7:00 p.m. already and another weekend is about over!

Maybe next weekend will be my quiet weekend!!!!!

    You certainly have a full life and that's just what God promises us...an abundant life! So happy you could spend time with family! It's really important!(but so is quiet time)
Take care of yourself too!
Glad the freezer was ok! Ah, the power of prayer! emoticon
