Another rainy day so shopping here we go!

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Yesterday was a very windy, rainy day. I guess that storm is coming up from FLA and it's going to hit us this week. So we went shopping and had a ball. I was able to buy a new top, something really different from what I usually wear and I like it as it makes me feel good. I also got a new bathrobe to replace my old one that is worn thin. That's sad as it was a good ole friend and I'm going to miss it but must move onward.

The best part is that my husband found 4 pairs of pants! He went down 2 sizes and
at least these look reasonable on him. He still insists on getting them bigger than necessary but these are much better than what he had. So we walked from about
11 AM to 3 PM shopping and then when we came home, I expected him to want to sit and take a nap like he usually does. He surprised me by challenging me to go swimming outside in the rain/wind. Now there is an inside pool but there were lots of kids in it as it was Columbus Day and they were off from school. That only meant that we really couldn't exercise like we wanted to. However the outside pool was empty. The water was so warm so we swam in the rain till the wind started to get cold and drove us inside. There was a different feeling about this. Like we were kids and being naughty, doing something adults wouldn't do, perhaps that made it all the more fun! I can't believe the change in him but I sure am loving it!

Shopping Day

Monday, October 10, 2011

There is something to be said about waking up content with a peace inside of you. Happy to be where you are and accepting of things you have no control over. Working to change that which you can one small step at a time but enjoying the journey, not just passing the time away. Time is something you can't ever get back so it's important to use each minute of the day.

Today we are going shopping. It's senior day at our favorite store. I've been waiting for this all summer, to see what is new and what bargains are to be found. Mostly, I'm looking for a new top and maybe some new sandals. My husband desperately needs new pants. The ones he is wearing now look like clown pants. If it weren't for the suspenders, they really wouldn't stay up. No belt could hold them! It's going to be a fun day!

1 Week

Saturday, October 08, 2011

It's been one week since I've been back on track and I've lost more than 6 lbs of what I gained in Sept. I am hoping for a great month and will keep going here. I can do this if I put my mind to it! Someone should hit me on the back of the head for letting me get off track. I just have to put myself first, stop feeling sorry for my situation and move on. I had lost my 'thin' image and gotten back to my former image of being huge. Then I looked in the mirror again and saw right now I'm in the middle and could go either way. It's time to take control again and just DO IT!

    You are doing great and don't worry about what happened yesterday, last week, last month, or last year. We can change it, only move forward. Keep your head up and keep on truckin!

    You go!! I know you can do it...so ..JUST DO IT! LOL

It's so funny...I posted/huddled that same thought this morning and then find you and you had the same thought. Scary.

As for hitting you upside the head...I can't do that cause it hurts my hand to hit the computer screeen. However I don't think you need it anyway. You have turned September around and you are doing what you need to. Just keep it up and I will be over here cheering you on!!

I haven't been able to get on line for the past few days and I sure missed it. I have however been going to the pool, eating right and having a ball doing it. Lots of exercise and I lost some weight too. They are changing from dial up to broadband here and the wifi is messed up so even though I can't report, I am still doing what I am supposed to be doing and will try the best I can to log in. Have a great day!

    Missed you!! Good for you, exercising and losing weight. I had a bad week. So I expect a weight gain next Wednesday when I weigh in. But I am back on track now. Darn donuts and dove bars!!!

Sunny Day

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Today is another beautiful, sunny day and we had so much fun at the pool yesterday that we are going again today. I swam for at least an hour (maybe more) and then we relaxed in the sun. I had forgotten how much we enjoy this and how good it is for me. Lots of exercise without drudgery!
