A New Lifestyle

Tuesday, August 04, 2009

I continue to be impressed and fascinated with SP. I can't get enough of the articles. I learn something every day. I really hope this site is the key to changing my lifestyle permanently. I lost another pound today and am feeling energetic and enthusiastic.

No Oomph

Monday, August 03, 2009

I started the day yesterday running, but by 3 o'clock I was exhausted. I guess all the activity of the last 10 days caught up with me and I ached all over and felt very sleepy. I was supposed to go out with a girlfriend in the late afternoon, but when she called at 4:30 I just couldn't get up the oomph. She said she understood, but I felt badly anyway. She told me to take care of myself so I read for a while and went to sleep early. I am blessed to have friends who understand. Back to work today and I'm not looking forward to it. Retirement in a year and a half seems preferable.

    You are so close. The retirement thing comes faster than you can imagine. Especially when you are at this point. In the meantime, you can do it. Enjoy the days you can and take it easy and relax on occasion.

Getting back to the routine

Sunday, August 02, 2009

Now that the grand kids are gone, I am getting back to my regular routine. I thought I would be sad when they left, but I'm not. I just feel happy that they came and that we had such a good time. This morning I spent some time on SP, ate breakfast, went for a 40 min walk with my dog, Bucky and stretched after my cool down. Now that I'm showered, I'm ready to start the day.

    It is so much more enjoyable being a grandparent isn't it?

  Yes, isn't it great to have the grandkids for a visit, but then let them go back to their parents? I would never turn down the chance to be with my GS, and I miss them when they go back hom, but I'm also kinda relieved -- that things are the way they are supposed to be.

Wonderful Time

Saturday, August 01, 2009

I just returned home from taking my grand daughters to Trinidad Colorado which is about half way from our home and theirs in Amarillo TX. We had a wonderful 10 days with them. I wasn't sure I would be able to follow my new health regime, but I did wonderfully both with food and exercise. My weight remained the same which was great by me. More importantly, we shared special moments and activities that will remain with me always. Life is so much more enjoyable when you are not thinking about food all the time!

    So glad that you had a great time with your granddaughters. The time you spend together can never be taken away and the memories are priceless. We do the same with our 3 youngest as they live near Atlanta and we are in So Ga. It is even better when you stay on track with the company. Congratulations on that. You are doing great.

Back from the Cabin

Friday, July 31, 2009

I got back from our 5 days at the cabin with my grand kids and DH. We had a wonderful time. The weather was cool and rainy the whole time, but it didn't slow us down. We hiked and played and had lots of fun. Our meals were healthful and we were active every day. I wrote all my food down and entered it in the tracker today. I was a few calories over (100 - 200 a couple of days) but when I weighed this am, I was the same weight as when I left even after eating s'mores (1) and drinking hot chocolate by the fire. Moderation is the key to changing my life.

    Moderation and Balance in all we do or eat...no feelings of guilt after an occassional treat...I think that is one of the best things about SP; you are not made to feel guilty for being human. I'm so glad you had a fun visit with your grand daughters...they sound like wonderful girls (just as all my grands are...oh, Granny, hush)...LOL emoticon emoticon Sharon
