Update info..

Monday, July 16, 2012

Well went thru a lot lately not knowing what is going on with hubbys job and all.. and boy i couldnt stop thinking at night.. not just about that but so many other things. But i kept busy doing yard work and other things and got thru it. Now hubby is back to work today with new boss. The good thing he used to work for him and they get along good and he always said he was welcomed back to work for him any time.. So far he is working and the only thing i dont know is what pay he is getting and if they still want him to order and all the other things he used to do. Well see! I have faith all will go good and we will make it thru. So life is good and i am going to get back to normal with exercising and all.. i have lost a little so makes me feel good to keep going.

Bad News!~

Friday, June 08, 2012

Hubby Just found out today that the restaurant he works at and has been working for over 20 years might be closing in August.. His boss told him today. So i am trying not to think too much about it.. I know he can work at a place in our town.. he used to work both places and the place in town the owner really liked him and said he could come back any time to work... or the owner of the building of the other place might want him to run it.. not sure what will happen yet.. so not tying to worry. I know we will make it thru no matter what happens.. we are in our 60s and soon we were going to retire.. not that we are ready for that thou.. !
So the good thing today is i did a 7 mile walk with my dog.. and feels good to be able to do that!!! so will keep working out and not let anything get to me..!!

I am trying so hard!~~

Thursday, May 31, 2012

I plan ahead each day to exercise and what i am going to eat..and I am eating much better and much less. Sometimes i mess up but its not a lot. The hard thing is by the end of the day..My legs hurt a lot.! My hamstring on both legs and the joint on the front too.. i am not going to give up.. i am finally going to get to soak in a hot tub with my gf when she gets hers next week and i am hoping that will help me.
I did a walk run work out video and finally running a lot more, which i am so happy about. On Sundays Husband and i are going bike riding and i am trying to go faster and longer, not trying to over do it but i want to be able to go 60 mins like i used to do. Its so hard when you feel like you have to start over and then you have pain as well.. i know its arthritis since i had so many falls, so now just have to work thru it and get much better..! I Know i will do this.. and i am blessed to have hubby to help me !

    You really do have determination to be working through the discomfort! I can totally relate to the no insurance and no dr. issue. How nice that your friend is getting a hot tub this week! and that you'll get to soak in it! I've heard the warm water is very comforting to those with arthritis.

    Ah, I understand how it is to have pain and still persevere!! It's a tough battle. You ARE fortunate to have a helpful partner in that husband of yours, too! When we keep doing 'what is right... to the best of our ability' we can feel good just DOING that! I'm cheering for you!! You can do it!

    Hi Geri,
Please don't push yourself so that you could be laid up for a good amount of time. I thought you were going to see a Doctor for some testing . There are no Free Clinics in the area that you could attend ?
I am so happy you lost the weight that you have but I really think you push yourself way to hard you don't want to over do and not be able to exercise at all. You seem to be hooked on exercising but you can push yourself sometimes to hard. You look real nice in your pictures so how much more weight are you hoping to lose.
Take Care of yourself wouldn't want to see anything happen to you.
Love Ya

    It sounds like you are doing the best you can. Just take it day by day, and if you mess up a little, acknowledge it and move on.

My mom is in your position right now as far as insurance. She is one year away from medicare, but has medical issues going on right now and has to pay cash. She has little money also. I feel so badly for people without insurance.

Take care and keep at it.

    you CAN do it. . .but you should address the pain. . .if realy arthritis, a doc can help you. . .if over-strain, you need to slow down and/or pamper your legs a bit. . .the pain will slow you down in the end - deal with it 8-))

My Birthday is tomorrow !!

Thursday, May 03, 2012

And i will be turning 61! would you believe it..?? Me its just a number.. and i feel so much younger !!I can do a lot for my age .. ride bikes. and run.. not as much.. working on that..play ball.. and now back to losing weight again.. and i feel like my clothes are looser and i know i am losing.. slowly which is good..! And then having my birthday too well i am planing ahead and not going to over eat and i am going to have fun!! We all have expectations for our birthday..maybe i used to but now as long as i have my hubby with me i am happy!! This year we are taking the 2 granddaughters with us out of town for the day then out to dinner.. so at least i know we will have them with us if not one else shows up..So i am happy and getting older isnt so bad you do have to work harder in losing.. but its all worth it to live a better life..!

    Happy Birthday! I turned 60 in February.....not so bad as you say, but definately takes more work to lose weight and keep it off. that is one of the biggest complaints on my part of aging.
Just trying to age gracefully!

I am finally getting back where I was !!

Thursday, April 26, 2012

I have been doing so much better with food. Not eating emotionally and much better ! Exercising more and a little harder. I haven't told this but I gained some of the weight I lost with bad eating. Being depressed since ham string made it hard to exercise . So things are much better now and I finally feel like I am getting back to we're I was. Going to take time but I know I will do this and keep the weight off. I think positive and don't think about about weight. Nummbers don't matter it's how I feel and how good my clothes fit. I try not to over think things either cause for Meccan make things harder. So I am on my way and I am so happy !!!!

    We all fall off track from time to time. Remember this is a journey. Whenever we have a bad moment, day, week or month, we just need to dust ourselves off, get back up and keep moving forward. That is half the battle. I am so glad you are back on your way. You CAN do this my friend!!

    Hi Geri,
I am sorry to hear that you were going though a depression. I know how that feels seeing I have fought it since 1990 after all of my surgery's. I have been on a antidepressant since mid 1990. Exercise does help it's hard when you are unable to .
I am so happy that you are fighting your emotionally eating habits. I f any one can do it you can you are a strong women seeing where you began and where you are now.
You will make your goal.
Love Ya Lorraine
