Never Quit Pledge

Today, I promise I will not quit.
I pledge that no matter, how many ups and
downs I pass through,
I will continue on my journey.
I pledge to make a NEW START today,
and forgive myself for my past,
and to stop being so critical of myself.
I pledge to take control of myself,
To Stop making excuses,
And stop blaming other people or situations.
I pledge to treat myself as I would my Best
Because that is who I am.
I pledge to stay in the race
and to be a WINNER!

Will you blog and post the Never Quit Pledge, today/soon?
Let's spread it through Sparks, so all can have the choice to commit!
Thankyou Sunflowergal40!!

Day 9 and totally great tuesday

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Okay I had a great day, despite coughing ect. I did I had a good day. It was dull, rainy and humid but that was fine. I had some slow time this am, then we went and got some groceries, came home put them away. I had to go to dr, had a good visit remembered everything and he was pleased with my 20 lbs loss even though it started at a higher number than he had asked me to lose 20 lbs from lol. Didn't change meds, said didn't need any for my cold, checked my ears, chest, went over mamogram talked about my legs and butt pain - we both think it is back related and not ready to do more.

Then went to library, took dad his books, forgot to get his perscription but he said never mind he will go tomorrow. I then came home and made a healthy supper even roasted sweet potatoes in oven and yes I still dont like them much but can tolerate them that way. Had cauliflower, broc . green beans all steamed and small pork chop.

Cos it is foggy and supposed to rain more, it is so humid, whew............ but did go for a walk I know and dr has said walk keep moving for your arthritis.

Biggest loser is on this eve, and dd will either drop over or call as she wants to see the book I got from library about the dog training.

Okay off I go to check emails, then tidy up kitchen and drink more water. cya hugs all

DD new dog and monday eve

Monday, April 23, 2012

That is bogart, a boxer /choc lab mix. He is 10 months old and seems cute. they haven't had him long so see how things go. Just editing to say, dd said hubby was taking him for a walk, and he is not good with other dogs, ( he growled with nico at first but within few mins he was fine) but at least on leash he is not good. He saw 3 dogs in their yard and he was snarling , growling ect and up on back legs, and son in law said it took his all to get him down so he could turn and go home. He will not take the dog for a walk now. So not sure what is going to happen as dd said well the dog can't come between us as she loves every animal and Mike does but as I have said hasn't the patience or the want to learn what to do properly and follow through as dd will.

So today we left, went to sister in laws and hubby helped her do their taxes. I did xstitch, walked her neighbourhood for an hr, and read a bit. So got my exercise in too! We are both tired though.
Anyway supposed to be bad rains for tonight and tomorrow. Nowhere to go far tomorrow, I may go to yoga, and I have a dr apt at 2.

Talk to you all later. catching up on email then have dishes waiting.

    He is adorable! But also sounds like he is going to be a lot of work for your daughter & her family. Maybe he's the dog that really pushes her to learn about doggie psychology? Just like my beloved Brynn pushed me in that direction 15 years ago! He can be taught tto behave differently, but they'll really have to make the commitment - hubby too!

Sunday eve....

Sunday, April 22, 2012

Not a busy day, we went to dd and hubbys to meet their new puppy. OMG he is cute, but when the two of them play it sounds so mean... but they are getting along well. Her hubby needs to learn patience not that he is at all upset. When the dog doesn't sit ect ( either dog LOL) he says sit sit sit, then just oh never mind......... DD is super good and patient, I feel she has the talent to do this as a job or biz. She hates her job, wants to quit and love love loves animals esp dogs. Allready the puppy listens to her better than Mike, they can tell. Marlo listens to Murray much better than me. Mike and I are too soft and get frustrated.
Well the RCMP were at my door this eve..... next door had called scared that the bf. would show up and said our names. So he asked us some questions and then also asked if we would agree to a statement and gave us him name and number and if bf is around to call and leave a message. Okay also told him we were reluctant to get involved as you can ohnly help those that want help. But since we have only seen her 1 x since she came back, who knows how she is now.
Been eating junk today, not a good thing and not a good way to stay at 184. so tomorrow ( well now but not hungry and nearly bedtime) back to the straight and narrow lol

Okay off to bed to read........... drink my green tea then hopefully sleep without waking to cough and or charley horses.
HUGS all!!!

    You'll have to post some pictures of the new puppy. A great book to give your daughter is "The Other End of the Leash" by Patricia McConnell, Ph.D., a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist. It is excellent! It's at the top of my list for understanding dogs & also understanding why humans do the things we do around dogs (like repeating a command over and over again). Hope you have a great day!

    Glad to hear the puppy is becoming a family member so quickly. Teaching dogs is a marvelous talent, perhaps she could become an obedience trainer and run classes!

Be wary of getting involved re your neighbour Cinders...I recall recent events emoticon

Eat well, move more and the weight WILL come off, have a good week emoticon

Another sunny Morning

Saturday, April 21, 2012

Well slept a bit better and feel a tad bit livlier. I have to get some housework done before my company comes and tidy up a bit. Not much for sure. Hubby says he is going to work on the deck base some this am! Hope so as I don't feel we are making much progress, working 2 hrs at most on most days. geesh but at least he is doing it and that is good. He is losing wt again probably cos eating well and doing work.

I was 184.6 mid week, and today 185.4 frustrating to say the least. Hubby said consolingly as he lost wt again, it is just that gunk from your cold filling your lungs and nose. lol Well have eaten well, and drank so who knows. I don't mind so bad other than it is the 5% weigh in and if I keep on like this will not make it again this time.

Well going to get off here, sweep the floor, do a bit of dusting and tidy thats it. Take it or leave it you are coming to visit your bro and me not our house. And they wouldn't care. one is a neat freak the other 2 won't care. And truthfully I dont care this time. Feel to rotten lol

Will probaby be back this eve. Hope you all have a great day! I am going to try to enjoy the sun and good weather, good company. Cya

Just back cos when I went back up to get dressed, figured what the hay, it is weigh day will re weigh haven't had anything to eat or drink. 184.4 which I was during the week. No word of a lie I always weigh first thing after a pee, well guess the scale can change that fast. and a NSV I didn't jump up and down and it didn't make my day. But was glad cos it is lower, and it is a help to my team. Glad the scale isnt making my mood for the day! HUGS

    Have a good , fun day! Mops can make me so frustrated too. Work like it horse and sometimes it seems like you're just swishing dirt around. One lady from a flooring company told me, after I asked, that the important key is to change your water often. I think I do but I must not enough! It still can look shimy and cleaner anyway. I'm sure yours does! You're hanging in there with your weight! Good job, Cinders!! emoticon
