Everything seemed to fall into place today. Got what I wanted done. Went where I needed to go and even got the 2 balls of yarn to make scarves for my friend and dd friend. Even in the colours they wanted!
I ate well, got to the cals I needed and all was healthy. Good ratio too. Only thing not great was I only walked to the library and to the mail. But still some strange butt leg issues and hoping that isn't starting up.
Think now will go knit then in a bit go to dd.
HUGS all cya in the morning!

OKay all. Slept okay just keep waking from dreams ect. I wil be interested when my fitbit comes to see how well I am actually sleeping. Perhaps I am dreaming that I am waking up so often LOL
Today is busy but that's okay.... we are going to the veggie store, pharmacy for hubby for more losenges he is full of cold again. He never gets sick and I almost every year get a cold either spring or fall and so far not much of anything. Knock on wood!
I also have to go to the library, and the fabric store. I want to make 2 scarves. A friend of mine who must be the best person in the world, saw me and wanted a scarf like mine. I hope I can find more wool in that colour. And one of dd friends wants one. (The other friend I just mentioned has leukiemia and is a nurse, she has a port so she can put her meds in herself daily. She is off work right now not feeling well but boy she cares so much. She organized a fund raiser for a friend of hers with breast cancer to get this friend much needed funds and help. She goes out of her way for everyone. So when she wanted the scarf I said no problem. )
We should probably go to the grocery store too and get a few things we need. Will look on line to see the flyers as they won't come yet. Probably tomorrow.
So a spark friend needs a push.................. she needs to get healthy for her health, herself and her family. I am going to meet this person in person this spring if I have my way! We don't live too far apart but as you know life is busy for us both. She has helped me when I had my breast cancer scare and just listened to me moan and groan. I am hoping she comes and starts over. Even if it is with the chair exercises or whatever.
So putting this out here for you Carol.............
one of the sparkers who really motivated me BEMORESTUBBORN said to me one day
What are you going to do today, to make your tomorrow a better day!!?? for some reason that really stuck in my head and reasonated to me. Perhaps it won't be your AHA bulb as it was mine, but hopefully something will stick.
I dont profess to know much of anything on this journey, but hope that you will start and travel along with me. HUGS
and hugs to all my sparkers who keep me going and comign back when I stop, start, get confused, frustrated and yea happy and more positive most times thanks to them.
HUGS all around!!!

Well it isn't even 9 pm but been a very long evening for me. I am blah, sore, tired, hurt, just tired of it all. Interesting how much pain affects everything and how not being in pain for while lowers your tolerance when it rears its ugly head again.
My back has been not as bad but still barely tolerable some days and since I stopped work. That amazingly enough was May 30th wow almost a year! geeesh.Of course my leg knee were issues and still are to a point. I have done so much better since my brace and now that my back is hurting so bad, I just am frustrated.
I am really also questioning this "diet" biz. I am sick and tired of finding it so hard, - now I am not saying hard in the I don't want it to be hard, I just want it to be done... kind of way. I am saying that I feel as if I am making it harder than it should be. Eat healthy, exercise, and lose wt. Well we have all been taught that but seems as if that doesn't work for everyone, now granted I also haven't been able to exercise much in past 2 years at least, other than off and on walking and bike. I have read about the grain stuff and agree, it isn't what our parents/grandparents even some of us ate. it is so genetically modified and gross that it isn't healthy. I am doing not bad not eating but just feel as if I am not doing it right. Supposed to know if I am getting enough carbs, from the right sources, protein ( find it hard to know how much and that veggies will give me enough but eat meat anyway) and fat and then the right amt of the right type. OMG driving myself crazy.
Now some is the pain, and was going to go for walk, but hurts to move. then was going to go to bed cos thats what I feel like but if I go to bed now, I will be in such pain by midnight from laying still. So used my daily walking as exercise cos it was tough enough.
Now that the venting, poor me, pity party is over....... cos there really isn't areason for it. I can walk, move, talk, ect. I am going to ever ever so slowly get down on the yoga mat and stretch.
So am thankful that I am not worse that I am....
okay cya strrrrrrrrrrrrretccccccccccccccch. OUCH but feels so good.

Happy Easter all.
Well had everything ready before, it all was ready at the right time and a good meal was had by all. And boy oh boy was Thomas in a great mood. he came in said HI great big smile and off he ran. Our downstairs ( well up too) is all connected,so he ran into dining around in the kitchen into living room, repeat repeat for almost 30 min top speed, laughing and everyonce in while stop, open a cupboard door and say oh wow, close it and take off. Funny but whew can he ever wear you out when you aren't used to him! LOL then he decided to go upstairs, one, two, three, five, six nine ten. sstops half way up to clap for himself. and then with his dad this time he ran into bedroom, through the bath, down the hall and again then found the big ball in exercise room and rolled that from room to room. lol
Eva she sat and smiled and then decided to not like her uncle mike for while then was content to be on the floor.
Marlo our dog just laid there except when T decided to dump her water bowl onto the rimmed plastic tray and then he wiped the water from the tray to the rug. she sat and just looked at him then me as if what is he doing! lol that is the only thing he got into - granted we spent a while moving all the plants, anad gadgets. lol
So good meal, family and fun. Dad as we figured, opted to be 'too tired" so convieniently as he did when was time to go to Chris. I just say whatever now. Took him some supper and that was fine.
Now to go rest. My back is sore, from getting supper and then got the kitchen all cleaned up. Had a great healthy meal and will say ate, buttercup squash, carrots, sweet ptoatoes roasted, they were okay. and for the 4th time tried asparagus this time under the broiler and still a huge huge YUK! all the while dd saying omg these are so great. OH YUK .
well gotta go, dog majesty just called, she is out in the snow.
cya have a great sleep and on to a brand new week!!

Okay very frustrated at myself and a tad angry. I have gained and gone to my original wt for the challege 187.4 yea it is still better than in the 90s to 200 that I was but I am saying bring on 185. WOnder what my inner mind is thinking cos sure aren't working ( food wise ) to get there. I am eating okay but getting the munchies. YOu would think with how busy I am, I wouldn't be munching but yea I have, when I stop I immediately go to the kitchen and browse....... what's up with this!?? I want to know why. This makes me think of ELiz RN who writes her blogs about talking to your inner self and finding out what is really going on.
As far as I can think nothing, 185 was what I weighed for years till my hysterectomy. I have no love to that number, wasn't like I was super sexy, or anything there, I want to reach 185 then 167. I was 167 after I had dd 31 years ago. When NOT IF WHEN I hit 166 I will be in awe!
So come on way in there, catch up with the other mind. Cos for my health I have to do this, never mind if you are nervous, worried, scared to change ( don't think I am thinkign those just guessing here), it will all be for the better.
I have a great healthy menu for Sunday, a ton of veggies, and yes the salty ham but I do boil it first to get a lot of the salt out.
I have even been walking, and drinking my water. Will say had I been more diligent in tracking ( usually got breakfast tracked) I may have lost. Thinking it can be the lunch and supper I had out on Thurs. not the best choices for supper.
Okay I know what to do, how to fix it, so heres to the next week. Now go and do better, try harder at the food, continue with the exercise and water and keep on trying.
HUGS and have a super Sat.
Have a super sat. I will eat all healthy I promise ME and you!!!
