Day 564

Saturday, January 03, 2009

Friday



Worked in AM and took care of animals in PM and then did not do as much exercise as planned, but did 10,000 steps and tried out my new treadmill and exercise bike - I got them free from some people who were 80 and wanted to get rid of them! They are very nice and in good condition.

I joined Official SparkPeople New YOU Bootcamp & Contest! To shake things up.

I am 143.8 today and want to get back down to 140. Well last week I was 146.3 so am headed in the right direction. Just trying to shake things up and stay on track. I am really quite fit now but am adding some new things so my body does not get too complacent. Last week shovelling snow was really quite effective!!! Anyhow my goals are to get back to 140 and need to do calorie cycling so my body does not go into starvation mode. I need to do my measurements and see where I am at but my new clothes look good and it feels good to shop in the petite section!!

New Years Day

Down to 144.3 and back on track as lost 2 lbs this week. I know some due to Aunt Flo but definitely did not want to even put my toe in another weight range! I have continued to eat lofs of fruits and veggies and drink water and exercise though and I think thats made a difference. Definitely am very fit and possibly thinner and more toned when I was 143-144 a year or so ago. My profile pic was taken at 143 and even then and now I look ok, as I have a muscular stocky frame. I am not petite just short! Went for a nice walk yesterday with 3 of my dogs around the snowy road, I have missed my walks but the weather has not been too good and DD does not enjoy walks! Hope I get a couple of walks in this week when she is at her preschool things. Happy New Year everyone!

    You are doing great! I'm not even going to say what the scale said this morning (yikes!) but Aunt Flo is visiting here, too, and I'm eating lots of fruits and veggies, too!

New Years Eve!

Down a pound today finally, thanks Aunt Flo. I am still just at a healthy BMI. Definitely want to lose 5 lbs to get back to 140. But I looked last year and I was actually at 137 this time last year and trying to get down to 135. People thought I looked too thin (and apparently older - who needs honest friends lol) so 135-140 is still fine. Main weight goal is to do this though and I know what to do and am ready to settle down with the snacking and will get back on track, I have been this week just a few extra snacks and down a little so it is working.

Otherwise 2009 main goal is to get into our house. The PM said it could be as little as 9 weeks, we may have to wait to finish the septic though depending on the weather, so we definitely need some dry weather soon. Its been rainy and slightly warmer. I dug 500 feet of driveway up to the house so they can resume work today - but so far nobody showed up!

Otherwise work on my relationships, with DH and DD, be more patient and loving.

I am working on prosperity issues and being more prosperous, normally I am but whether its the economy or what I seem to be stumbling with this lately, partly because people are not paying me, but I need to rise above this and create the prosperity I want.

I would like to make some new friends, but am not too good at it, I still miss my best friend who died very much, I had known her over 15 years and she just really understood me and we could talk about so many things, I don't really share with any of my other friends. I also lost another old friend earlier this year, we were not so close but she was also someone who you could always talk to and who really just got who I am. For some reason these were the two friends who I most felt this with. Most of my friends are not close by, just one not so close friend I have made since I moved here and she is always busy and whenever we plan to meet something seems to come up. I even got to the point of asking if she really wanted to be my friend, which she said she did, but last time we planned to meet, it snowed and she cancelled right away. I am keeping the door open but honestly I need some real friends close-by to do things with, both for myself and DD.

So there we have it! Happy 2009!

Tuesday



At least we get points for blogging now! Getting back on track this week with eating but so far not losing weight, but Aunt Flo arrived today so hope things start shifting soon. Jan 1st will be the start of the new campaign, and no more Holiday treats. I am a little upset I have put on weight because I have by no means gone crazy and have continued to exercise through all this. But I am sure I will lose it soon. I feel ok but not so much energy or enthusiasm for work right now. I think its just been a stressful time and need to be gentle with myself. The first step is lose 5 lbs, which is not a lot (really just a maintenance range but it takes me into the next maintenance range so its time) still a healthy BMI though. The house may be finished in 9 weeks the project manager told me yesterday, but we may have to wait on the septic because of the weather. Though honestly if we do will sneak up there and take a few hot baths - in the NEW whirlpool tub (which they FORGOT but are delivering soon. At this point I cannot even imagine the luxury of living in a house. But I also realize from having travelled and loved and worked in so many countries that many people never have even close to that luxury, and I think thats why I have managed ok in the trailer for the most part too. But the hot showers are nice :) we do take a lot for granted in the West though and sometimes its good to be without the things we take for granted to make us appreciate them.

Umm that should say lived and worked not loved and worked but...!

    Well, I've been getting a bit excited now about our possible move. There are houses in that town that are under $20,000, over 50 years old, and are 'fixer-uppers'. RIGHT UP MY ALLEY! LOL I'd say that if we can get a cheap place that is liveable and I have a project, I will be HAPPY.
And you're right - Americans do tend to take the things we've got for granted. I've been to many places, Nicaragua comes to mind, where the people live in ... I don't even know what to call them, because they're not shacks even! But the point is, we DO have it REALLY good!

Monday



Pedometer still acting weird and reset itself but know I did at least 12000 steps and some was shovelling snow too. Had another wonderful hot shower and definitely appreciate the simple things in life now. Though having lived in Thailand for 6 months have lived for longer without hot showers but it was a little warmer there. Busy day and not as planned and got a speeding ticket which did not make my day. Had delicious salad for dinner but got a box of chocolates and cookies from a client in the mail - luckily DD helped eat them (there were not a lot) geez I am done with the food fest thats for sure!

    Yes, the simple things really are the best! Sorry about the ticket, though!

    A speeding ticket??? What, were you walking too fast ?!?! HAHA
The 'simple' things in life, to me, are what makes life worth living!
