Day 619

Thursday, February 26, 2009

Thursday



Definitely get more steps when I go for a hike! It was pretty cold and damp today, and snowed a little last night. I did see signs of Spring on my hike though. For some reason its been very quiet business-wise but I am getting a little more time to do things and it definitely comes in cycles! Still at 142.3 today and ate very healthy. This is my friend's other cat who loves to go out and we let him out today for the first time, he was so happy. His name is Red.

Congratulations! you're 15,638 steps over your monthly goal of 15000 per day.

Day 618

Wed



Pedometer reset - always seems to happen on my higher days! I managed to get my steps in, run a lot of errands, and go for a walk round town in the freezing snow and rain, while DD was at her preschool. Then swam laps for almost half an hour while she was at her swim-class. Did 23000 steps total! DD is going into level 2 now, she is actually naturally athletic I think (takes more after DH than me, though I have a lot of stamina and strength) so all in all a good busy day! Work has dropped off and I may be having email problems so have to check, because 2 clients told me they sent emails I did not get, and maybe there are more. We woke up to elk this morning! The scales moved down to 142.3, the lowest since the Holidays.

    Oooh, how I love swimming. You've reminded me that once my finances settled down, I need to find a great place to swim. What a treat for you to swim while your daughter takes classes. I'd love to do the same for my nephew. Must look into that!

    Congrats on the scale! That's wonderful news!

And what a beautiful picture! We often wake up to animals, but by the time I get outside (or even to the window) there are only tracks outside.

Tue



Its been harder to do any exercise the last few days since I am feeling tired from the weekend and being up all night with DD. The good thing is she is doing much better and thats the main thing. But I got my steps in - I did 15223 and am above average for the month at 17,057 steps a day average. Got my taxes done yesterday too and wrote an article for a cat magazine again, this one was on Homeopathy for Cats. The good news is the scales are slowly slowly moving and was 142.3 today, I just want to lose this 2.3 lbs to get to where I really need to be, and never thought it would be this difficult. I am looking forward to maintenance mode again! This is my friend's cat I adopted when she passed, and she is settling in well, as is the other one. Her name is Princess Caraboo, and her brother is Red.

    Woohoo! on the weight loss and writing the article for the magazine. I am so glad you took in your friend's cat. What a sweet looking cat. too. I used to do freelance writing years ago. I mostly wrote for Mechanix Illustrated (and several other national magazines) back when women didn't write for a predominantly male oriented magazine so had to write under initials. They did not know I was a woman until I had written for them for 3 years. LOL and then they didn't care since I had already proved myself.

Monday



Took DD to her (naturopathic) doctor who declared her to have a stomach virus. Of course by the time I told her she could take her cat with her in the car and we got to the doctor she had made a miraculous recovery, but best to be safe. She had not been in for a while so I figured a check up was a good idea, and her temp was 100 so still a little high. She gave her a homeopathic remedy and she is feeling much better tonight.

I am excited because the local newspaper might want to use some of my photos on their website, I had signed up to do a blog for them and they sent me an email tonight based on some photos I had submitted to their reader photo section. I am really wanting to do more with my photos but not sure what exactly! Anyhow this is really exciting as I just submitted them for the sake of submitting them not for any particular reason. This is one of my favorite photos from last year.

    I am glad your dd is better. Yes you really need to copyright your photos if you have not already. I copyright everything I put on the web. You could make some seriously good money with your photos. You could maybe pick up a Writer's Market or Photo/Journalist or Professional Photographer and find markets for them. Writer's Market lists some .

Sunday



Busy and not too restful day and really have to be careful not to get burned out between work, running DD everywhere and trying to get the house done here. Its the final push on getting our house finished then we are going to go to Hawaii for a week and rest! We both need it and DH has not had a vacation since our honeymoon 5.5 years ago and not sure that was entirely restful (long drive to Glacier National Park camping but gorgeous honeymoon). Anyhow weight was about 142.7 again but with my scales (ssss) who knows! 2.7 lbs to go to be back in maintenance but could take all year at this rate! I have cut my calories because increasing them did not work and am at about 1300-1400 with some higher days to keep things moving!
