The Joys of House Painting

Tuesday, February 03, 2009



This week and possible next we are repainting our house. This morming we tore off old wall paper. What a big job that was!! I had to take many rest periods. Me and my hubbie took turns scraping old paper and painting.

All this for refinancing our house--sprucing up things. We just begun today and it will extend into next week.
WHEW!

So my exercising will suffer because of this. Painting and scrubbing wall paper can surely take the strength from a person. Espeically if they have health concerns. So this week and next I will count re-doing the house as exercise.

While in turn means that I will have to eat mid range.

Thing should return to normal when we finish with this gaint project.


just a note/blog for our challenge and to let others know what I am up to for now.

Until I'll be blessed and not stressed. By the way my hd is better at painting then I am. Cartoon is just a funny.

The only joys will be when we finish!!!!!! emoticon

    While it isn't "traditional" exercise, it is still exercise!! I'm sure there is something in the cardio area for it!! It of course won't count for the challenge but if you are doing it you should still count it for your exercise!!! Happy painting!! Please post pics!!!

    OH, I LOVE painting!!! It's "instant gratification"! Although that work is a cardio workout, nope it's not going to count toward the challenge! TAKE THE TIME for a 20 minute brisk walk. You'll need it anyway to stretch out the muscles!
I do hate taking down wallpaper, though. I have found that liquid fabric softener with warm water (can't remember the ratios!) DOES help in loosening up that wallpaper glue, though!
HAVE FUN! And if you've got time, PICTURES! LOL

SAD NEWS..........

Tuesday, January 27, 2009



I up loaded a cartoon of diabetes. But it sure ain't no joke. I just found out that a relative died with diabetes. I guess I am writing to keep myself from eating anything else. At least I can not eat the wood off the walls.

I warned him but he told me he would eat what he wanted. He told me that I should eat like I wanted to. Now his end result is dying without trying. It angers me so much. I believe as my Dr believes type 2 diabetes can be controlled with much work. I am conrolled by diet and exercise. I made a vow before God that if he would help me with this awful disease I would do my best to over come it.

This is a warning to all those who have this disease and do nothing about it. The end result will not be good. My relative died a slow death each day because he refused to follow his drs advise. I am very disappeinted and hurt.

I may slip and slip with Mr EE emotional eating but I vow before God I Will keep fighting. So I am writing to release this from me and to get anyones attention to this disease and to let them know this disease does not play and when it does it plays dirty.

Take care of yourself. I love me more tham a cookie or a bag of chips.I want all my parts and I want them intact, not cut off or cut out. It is just not worth it. Today was a struggle but as I always say I will make it even if I have to crawl on all fours.

    I wrote you yesterday but forgot to say that I was sorry for your loss. Sometimes, it takes something like that to see that we should pay attention to our bodies.
I hope you enjoy the challenge as much as I do. Not only do we get healthy, but we get to encourage one another as part of the challenge. How cool is that!!!

    I'm sorry for your loss!
This IS a wake-up call. Stop playing around with your body, it's the ONLY one you've got! You'll be around for MANY years!!! Do you want to LIVE or just "be there"???
It's time to TAKE CHARGE!

    I know people with diabetes and the ones who control it live very good lives. They just have to watch what they eat and to make sure they get some exercise. I love your blog. It is sad when people don't honor God with their bodies but you can help those that do.
I love your Sparkpage. It is so informative and I pray that you always keep the diabetes in control till God can heal you from it.

    I know what you mean about being able to control it with diet and exercise!! Diabetes runs in my family. My relatives are constantly trying to control theirs!!! Most have to take insulin. I know the potential is there for me so I try really hard to be aware of my food intake!!

CHALLENGE TIME AGAIN!

Tuesday, January 27, 2009



WELL IT IS THAT TIME AGAIN.

THIS LADY IN MY PICTURE IS MY EXERCISE PARTNER. HER NAME IS LESLIE SANSONE. SHE IS A GREAT MOTIVATOR! WHEN I FEEL LIKE I WANT TO SIT DOWN SHE KEEPS ME GOING. I REALLY LIKE HER CAUSE HER STEPS ARE NOT TOO DANCY. HER VIDS ARE EASY TO FOLLOW AND THE COST IS REASONABLE I USUALLY BUY THEM FROM WALMART. FOR AROUND 15.00 NOT BAD.

MY QUEST FOR OVER COMING EE EMOTIONAL EATING IS STILL USING THE BECK TECHNIQUE. I HAVE BEGUN TO RE-READ CERTAIN CHAPTERS OF THE BOOK. I WILL DO THIS EACH WEEK.

IT IS SO EASY TO USE EXCUSES BUT THEY DON'T GET RESULTS. SO I AM GOING TO TACKLE THIS HEAD ON. I WILL USE MY MEGAPHONE WHEN NEEDED. emoticon. THOSE UGLY OVER EATING AND ONCE IN A BLUE MOON DON'T EXERCISE VOICES MUST BE PUT IN THEIR PLACE. THEY DON'T HAVE RULE OVER ME.

I WILL TRY AND TRY A NEW VEGGIE OR FRUIT WEEKLY. GROCERY STORE FOR FRESH VEGGIES AND FRUITS SOON. WATER MY OH MY!! I GOT TO TRY.ONE OF MY BIGGEST STRUGGLES. YES I KNOW I SHOULD DRINK 12 CUPS. WHEW!!

I WILL INVEST IN SOME NEW DVD BY LESLIE I HAVE DONE MOST OF THEM AND KNOW THEIR EVERY MOVE AND THAT IS NOT GOOD. I HAVE SOME 4 MILERS BUT FOR NOW THAT IS TOO CHALLENGING. THAT WILL BE SOMETHING TO WORK FORWARD INTO THE FUTURE.

I WILL CHECK WITH MY PRAY PARTNER WEEKLY. AND EXCHANGE HOW WE ARE DOING. SHE WAS DIAGNOSED AS DIABETIC SO WE PRAY FOR EACH OTHER AND HELP/SUPPORT EACH OTHER. ALSO CHECK WITH OUR ACCOUNTABILITY TEAM WITH MRSHONEYS TEAM AND MY FELLOW BECKERS.

SEE U LATER AND BEST WISHES TO ME.

    Good for you for making the healthy choice to try some new veggies and fruit weekly. I was not much of a fruit or veggie eater as I didn't like to do the prep work. I still don't to my hubby does it for me. Our evening snack consists of a platter for two raw veggies.

They say to make a change a habit it takes 20 - 30 consecutive days to be a habit.

    I too love Leslie's workouts!! I have done the one mile with religious music in the back ground, and then I purchased the one that had the weighted balls and the stretchy band. It has 1, 2, and 3 miles on it. I love the workouts! I have been doing the 2 mile. But I'm thinking about doing the 3 and the 2 together! I did that once already and it was a good workout!

As for water, I suggest that you keep a bottle beside you all the time!!! That way when you want something to drink or to eat, drink some of the water first, then if you are still wanting something else, have it!!

    I know all the "moves" from Leslie, too, and I do them while watching "Judge Judy" some days. It is much better than just sitting on the sofa and watching. emoticon

A NEW BEGINNING

Wednesday, January 07, 2009

THIS IS A SMALL BLOG FROM ME TO ME. I JUST STARTED A CHALLENGE IN ONE OF MY GROUPS.I REALISE THAT IT IS SO TEMPTING TO COMPARE MYSELF TO OTHERS. BUT, THE TRUTH IS I HAVE NEVER DONE THAT. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A BE ME PERSON. AND THIS IS MY JOURNEY.

MY NUTRITION--- STARTED OUT IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION BUT ENDED OUT ON THE WRONG NOTE. I DID OVER EAT. IN MY BECK TEAM I HAVE KNOWN TO PULL OUT MY MEGAPHONE AND TALK TO THOSE DEMONS OR NEGATIVES VOICES. LIKE emoticon "GET LOST YOU UGLY VOICES OF EATING WHEN I AM NOT HUNGRY." THIS IS A PROCESS. SINCE THE EATING YOUR RAINBOWS CHALLENGE I HAVE DONE GREAT ON EATING MY VEGGIES AND FRUITS. NOW! I WILL PLAN CAREFULLY AND BE MINDFUL OF THOSE UGLY, CRAZY VOICES. SOMEONE CALLED THEMSELVES A FOOD SLUT. BUT THAT IS NOT ME. SOMETIMES I CAN CRUSH THOSE OVEREATING VOICES. emoticon. OF COURSE THOSE WHO REALLY KNOW ME KNOWS IT IS MY FAITH IN CHRIST THAT IS MY STRENGTH. I WILL LEAN ON HIM MORE EACH DAY! THUR CHRIST I CAN DO ALL THINGS. EVEN DRINK 9 GLASSES OF WATER EACH DAY. NEXT WEEKS CHALLENGE FOR ME!!!

EXERCISE----- WILL THIS IS NATURAL FOR ME. I REALLY LOVE MOVING AND NOW SWEATING. I USE TO THINK THAT SWEATING WAS GROSS. I AM OVER THAT. I FAVORITE EXERCISE COACH IS LESLIE SANSONE. SHE IS NOT TOO DANCY AND SHE IS A WOMAN OF FAITH. SHE IS VERY MOTIVATING. I WAS BLESSED BY HER DVD CALLED WALK THE WALK IT WAS VERY SPIRIT FILLED.

BEHAVIOR--- MY MAIN STRENGTH COMES FROM THE LORD I WILL CALL ON HIM OFTEN. I WILL USE MY MEGAPHONE WHEN I NEED TO SPEAK TO THOSE VOICES! REVISIT BECK CONCEPTS AND RUN TO MY BECK GROUP FOR SUPPORT. THEY ARE VERY CARING AND THEY DO NOT JUDGE... BECAUSE WE ARE ALL IN THE SAME BOAT. SOME IN DIFFERENT STAGES OF THEIR BOATS. WE WELCOME HONESTY THERE. IF SOME ARE AFRAID TO SPEAK CAUSE SOMEONE DASHES YOU DOWN JUST REMEMBER THEY HAVE NOT ARRIVED CAUSE THEY ARE HERE AT SPARK PEOPLE TOO. PLANNING MY MEALS AND SNACKS HAVE BEEN A BIG HELP SO I'LL WILL STICK WITH IT. I WILL USE MY DISTRACTION TECHNIQUES FOR EATING WHEN I AM NOT HUNGRY ADDITIONS ARE: CROCHETING AND CHEWING GUM THEY HELP ME OUT TOO. I JUST STARTED A PRAYER SHAWL THIS WEEK. SOMETHING TO KEEP MY HANDS.


UNTIL TOMORROW....

BUT THEY THAT WAIT UPON THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH; THEY SHALL MOUNT UP WITH WINGS AS EAGLES; THEY SHALL RUN, AND NOT TO WEARY, AND THEY SHALL WALK AND NOT FAINT. ISAIAH 40:31

OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW!

Wednesday, December 31, 2008

I DON'T BELIEVE IN NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS. SOME TIMES THAT CAN BACK FIRE.

INSTEAD I WILL CONTINUE TO WORK WHAT I WAS ALREADY WORKING ON JUST TRY TO BE MORE CONSISTENT.

1. EXERCISE KEEP AT IT. FIND NEW EXERCISES I CAN DO AND STICK WITH.

2. MR. EE I HAVE FAITH IN CHRIST AND HE SAID THREW HIM ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE SO I WILL KEEP THE FIGHT OF FAITH. OF COURSE FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. I WILL TRY AND MONITOR WHAT I AM EATING. THIS MEANS PLANNING ALL MEAL AND SNACKS. THIS WORKED THIS PAST YEAR. TRY TO DECIDE IF I AM REALLY HUNGRY AT THE TIME OR IS SOME EMOTIONAL THINGS INVOLVED?

THINGS TO WORK ON IN THIS AREA. WHEN I HAVE TO LEAVE THE HOUSE AND RUN ERRANDS. I AM THROWN OFF CAUSE I HAVE TO EAT IN A HURRY. AT LEAST THIS IS HOW I FEEL. I COULD TRY TO EAT A MINI BREAKFAST, AND MAY BE HAVE A REAL MEAL IF I AM OUT MORE THAN 3 HOURS. THIS MAY WORK.

3. VEGGIES AND FRUITS INTAKE WILL THIS WENT WELL WHEN I WAS IN A CHALLENGE CALLED EATING YOUR RAINBOWS. YOU EAT FROM 5 COLORS FRUITS AND VEGGIES. THAT REALLY HELPED ME. SO I THINK I CAN DO THIS ON MY OWN NOW. THANKS MRSHONEY!

4. WATER WHEW! THIS IS A MONSTER. I HAVE HEARD ALL ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF DRINKING WATER. BUT THE LACK OF TASTE IS A ISSUE WITH ME..SO I WILL WORK OUT THINGS TO SUITE WHAT WORKS FOR ME FOR NOW. NO I AM NOT SYAING DO WHAT I DO. I AM DOING WHAT CAN WORK FOR ME UNTIL.....

5. EMOTIONAL/SPIRIT WILL HAVE USED TECHNIQUES FROM BECK FOR THE EMOTIONAL PART. STILL WORKING ON THEM DAILY.

NOW SPIRIT I HAVE BROUGHT A DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING THAT I READ EACH DAY. THE BIBLE STUDY I COULD ALWAYS IMPROVE ON AND I WILL SET SOME TIME ASIDE FOR IT.

THINGS I HAVE NOTICED SINCE STARTING BECK: I DO NOT ENJOY EATING OUT ANYMORE I WOULD RATHER COOK MYSELF. THIS WAY I KNOW WHAT IS IN THE FOOD AND HOW IT WAS PREPARED, I DO NOT EAT AS FAST AS I DID BEFORE. I CALL THIS A SUCCESS.

UNTIL THE NEXT TIME I AM OVER AND OUT.
