Cos I don't really care anymore, and actually she realized after she said it what it sounded like.
Hubby and his mum on phone, she is commenting about someone from years ago, hubby says 'Oh Cindy and her sister oh yea I remember both of them. When I was about 12 I was going to marry that Cindy. HA and here I ended up marrying a Cindy"
His mum replies quick as can be.... " oh yea... huhn yea you married the wrong one. " He quickly said NO I married the right one. My Cindy is the right one for me."
SHe says oh well yea, but the wrong one from when you were a kid, the one you planned to marry. "
Dear god he was 12. So for those of you that know the story of MIL not liking me, and after us being married for 20 years ( geesh 17 years ago WOW) she told us that she couldn't live like this but I had ruined her and her families life and was the worst thing that could have ver happened. blamed me for stuff, said I got preg. on purpose, that her sweet son only went in military cos of me. All of it was lies and even when hubby said uh NO NO NO. she wouldn't listen.
Well she "likes" me now, we can converse etc. but I am not alone with her as she still starts.
I started laughing when I heard them, I called out to hubby Hey Mur good save! LOL he laughed. lol
anyway had a good day 3. Had the challenge of eating out did well, and also was hungry this eve but didn't eat. Had eaten all I needed and was fine, so got more water, and walked the dog.
hoping my foot isn't from adding that 2 short walks on. Anyway, will ice it in the morning and see whats up . I have been wearing my orthotics and such but my shoes do slide a bit.
Oh well time for bed, very humid so have the fan on hoping I sleep better.

Well today hubby said do we have enough money to get me a gear fit, they are on sale from 200 some down to 100 some down to $79.00 it is a watch, heart rate moniter, PEDOMETER!!!!, and more. Very much like the fit bit. So now we both have something. And he is competitive, I know he will never walk like I do, but he is willing to get moving. He is walking around the house like I do when it rains. Makes me laugh cos he never walks. He sits in his chair and in on puter or watches tv. I have been asking him please walk with me, lets go on the path in the woods, you can see how great of a job. Well sometime. So the time is this eve when it cools down! Now for how long this will be an incentive who knows but he is walking around again. lol
We also had to go across city for this item, so he said lets go out for lunch. EEEK. okaaaay, I knew I was making chicken ceasar salad for supper, and I can control the dressing and such and add more veggies so knew what was left available on my plan. I choose well and even though was a tad high in cals, I am not going to go over and didn't go off plan. Had water and tea which is normal for me. Rarely do I ever have pop. So first real challenge over.
Now to go sweep the front hall, and living room, rest, do the dining and kitchen, rest and then ice my back. May sit and read for a bit, haven't done lots but haven't been lazy either.

I didn't blog yesterday, as thought, I don't have a lot to say. Yesterday was about being interested vs committed. I feel committed and have a desire to do this. I have been there before but have a different feeling this time. I am trying hard to be sure this time is the time. I kept saying I am committed and hubby was like you need to be committed, going around saying that all day LOL
Today is do it anyway. I will do it anyway. Even if it isn't something to do with health, there are things I need to say do it anyway about. So no problem I will "Do it anyway". but one health one is to get my food processor out and grate some cabbage up. I bought one while back and it withered away cos I did grate some by hand but wasn't able to do it well. I want to have some kale and cabbage salad and figured instead of buying it - make it. I only needed the cabbage LOL
So as I said Monday, they guys came and dug out the old asphalt and such, brought more gravel, but haven't been back. Hoping they come today, I know they were doing 2 others too so it will get done. I am sure he wont leave it as he has now started it. but would have liked even an approx. time line. LOL
Today I will walk to the yellow post ( my goal for this week) in the woods path( paved so I wont fall for those asking about roots and such), I will eat on my health first plan. I will get some tidying done and not sure what hubby has planned. So upper body today, rest, do a bit, rest, walk, ice, rest, then see how the day goes. Pain is my normal although had some extra butt pain so hoping I can keep my sciatica at bay. and thinking this pain in my thumbs is my normal now as it doesn't seem to be leaving. OH well. I will adapt!
HUGS have a great day today all, - Do it anyway.

I read the book 100 days of weight loss by Linda Spangle a few years ago, read it but didn't do the exercises or work. Well I joined the team while back here on spark and again did nothing. Linda Spangle the author is doing her 100 days so a lot of us are starting with her.
So I got myself a nice purple notebook, chose which food plan I wanted to do, ( dr recommended Health First by Steve Hirsch) so will do that. It is common sense but less food than I am used to. LOL HA of course it is silly!!!
Day 1 entails believing you will change your behaviours. So I used to do............. now I do.......... Here is my list.
I used to fear failure but now I am different. I will persevere and try harder and believe I am worth it.
I used to worry about being flabbier if I lost weight, but now I am different. I will work out with weights to my best ability and keep my exercise going and work at being toned.
I used to think that this is too hard, why bother, but now I am different. I know that it is hard, what in my life hasn't been at some time. So now I will embrace that I am strong and able and will do this for my health and well being. I NEED to do this.
I used to want junk and sweets constantly but now I am different. I will reach for fruit but only up to 4 servs a day, and drink my water. I will choose good healthy foods knowing that not only will it help me lose weight, but will make my body stronger inside and out and help protect from illness.
I used to eat my emotions, happy, sad, mad, glad no matter I would eat, But now I am different. I have many things I can do, journal, art journal, sew, quilt, x sttich when hands let me, scrapbook, walk, read. call a friend, talk to a friend on here... and thankfully talk to hubby. I have many options I don't need to turn to food. Besides food doesn't help at all.
My reasons are on the team page and my fingers hurt so not re doing them! LOL

Well started out with Allie and I walking, brought her home, and I headed out again. Have a spot to get to and then turned and came back. A few more walks with her, short ones around the block. Read, napped, and then we went out for a bit. Home and walked her, then went out again alone. Same area, same length. Now am done for the night. I iced my knee and feel okay for me. I say okay but all that know it is the regular pain, just not extra. Oh well I will be fine. I will survive and I WILL LOSE this wt.
So tomorrow Linda Spangle starts her day 1 of her book, and I am starting then too. There are a few more new ones on the team also. I have had her book for few years, read it but never did the work. That changes tomorrow. Be good to have a team and the author doing it, sure will be harder to just give up! lol
Okay going to go and get ready for tomorrow. HOping the driveway guy shows up, supposed to be last Friday and a few days before that, but giving him benefit for Friday as was pouring rain..... man..... well at least the roof is done, and hubby is sure he can fix the emerg. brake of car. So onward to a good nights sleep and tomorrow.
