I am not going to weigh again until Jan 31, 2012

Thursday, December 29, 2011

I am so tired of that dang scale!!!

I had a nice day--cold until the man from PG&E showed up and lit my furnace--now I have heat!!!
Christmas was great with all the kids--just plain fun.

Looking forward to the next year with you and my new friends and family--you are a bright spot in my day.

Peace be with you and may you fill your life with all that is good. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I did that in November and it was great. Helped me focus on eating right and exercising rather than timing a trip to the scale. You'll like how it makes you feel, for sure! Best of luck!

    PITCH THAT SCALE.. It is not our friend. It just sits around -smiling and not doing anything til we go to visit - and then it just LIES to us.
And? why did you wait through the cold spell to call PG&e?

Stay warm
Stay well
Stay safe
Stay happy.. emoticon

    Hope that you too are surrounded by Calm and Bright in 2012!

I like the vowing to stay off the scale till 1/31/'12. The numbers on the scale change constantly, and you have to remember that it is an average.
So getting weighted once a month will be as good a number as an average. Once a week = average for the week. If you were to weigh yourself 10 times a day, each time would be different, and vary up to 8 lbs difference. So you'd have to add the 10 weights and divide to come up with an average for that day.

emoticon Toss that scale this month, and concentrate on healthy eating, moving a bit everyday, getting enough sleep, and drinking water, and smiling ! I'll bet without the numbers on the scale weighing you down...that when you do a monthly weigh-in, that those numbers will be lower!

Good Luck, and a happy healthy 2012! emoticon

    I often find the scale frustrating as it tends to stall. I usually set goals where I attempt to only get on it weekly...but a whole month? I would never be able to do that. I think it is great that you're taking the scale out of the equation for yourself. Best of luck in January!

I did get to the shopping and had fun!!
I thought about Wayne when I shopped alone and all the fun times we had and would dissolve into tears when alone.
My sweet daughter took me shopping for her family and I had a good time picking out presents for them all
That worked so well I asked my grand daughter to go shopping with me for her family and again had a fun time!!
So, I thought what are the odds of my 12 year old grandson going with me and I got a call from him asking if I needed someone to go shopping for his family---amazing!
We had a great time and had all the presents, except his in and hour!!
There is nothing like eating with a growing 12 year old boy--no one can enjoy food like this kid. Fun.
So my home is a flurry of paper and packaging --shinny wrapped presents and a twinkling tree. The tree is not the traditional kind--but I know that Hubby is smiling down on us and is happy that I am honoring his memory and continuing on--I ache for him --yet, I know that he has a peace now that surpasses human understanding-----enjoy my love--enjoy.

What a wonderful blog. I think it is great that you had the opportunity to shop with your family. It certainly gave you a feeling of joy.
I am sure that your Hubby is smiling and happy that you had a day of joy, your memories will remain of the great times you had with him.
Enjoy your Christmas with your family and thank you for sharing this.

Christmas and Kids

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

One Christmas, a woman told her four-year-old niece that they were going to come to her house to exchange names for Christmas. This brought forth a loud protest from Emily who said, "But I don't want to. I like being Emily!"

I vow!!

I will write down all my minutes each day---I write down some of the exercise and not the others---because it takes several times loging in on to the computer!
Now my TOPS group is having a contest and I want to be on top of it.
This will be a challenge to me---but my team can use the points!!

The thing I must do is not stress on it just continue how I have been doing and not change anything except log the minutes and write it down so that I do not forget the many times I do yoga and weights per day.

    There are many times in my life when I have heard "The job's not done til the paperwork's done"... I guess this is one when it has to be written down. That way you will get credit for ALL the great things you are doing.

Awesome, you can do it.

Grab the paper and pen - emoticon emoticon
