Okay Sparkers!!!!! lets bring in May in fine fashion!!! What are you all going to do to make today a special healthy day for you... That harks back to BEMORESTUBBORN and her question to me, "What can you do today, to make your tomorrow better for you?".
Being a slow learner lol I haven't always listened to her or more so did what I should have, will say those words are in my mind every day usually more than once!!! And it is working!! Finally I am seeing the scale go down, my jeans and tops getting too big!!
So this May I am challenging myself big time. I am doing better on exercise, was doing great on food, but have been slacking. Starting today I am back to logging food at least for a week to see how I am doing compared to what my fitbit says I am using in cals. I am not good at logging food, for some reason it is tedious and I just don't stick with it. HAPPYWALKER totally understands this! LOL
I am seeing a sunny day opening up before me, with temps supposed to be up to 10 this afternoon, that is still not too warm but at least it isnt 0 - freezing as it was yesterday am. Today when I woke it was +3.Colder now than in March. Oh well spring is on it's way!
So today I ask of all of you....."what are you going to do today to make your tomorrow a better and healthier day for you??" ME - walk x2, eat healthy no processed foods and enjoy life!
HUGS to you all and HAPPY MAY DAY!

LOL I was off puter for while, we are getting snow drops I will call them, rain that is snow till gets close to ground then rain. Has stopped now - glad we are home as it is winder than yesterday! BRRRRRR
I realized yesterday that I still got exercise in, cos my mid back was hurting so told hubby, watch my purse and bag of stuff as I am walking. So when it stopped raining I walked the entire RV center 3x so still got my exercise in. Glad as can say day 13 and only day that may be iffy was the full blown cold day which i still moved more than normal, just slower.
Dd was down to see trailer, and LOVES it, says like a small apt. LOL yea cos of the 2 slides it does go square. Ds will be over in while, they are shopping and errands and we are going out for a few mins too. He will be over later too to get his taxes done.
So all left is to get dad down and show him. HE will not be happy with us but I have to learn to let that go. He will think it is stupid, a huge indulgence, but I often think of then sitting home constantly doing nothing, and years ago in his 50s wishing he had a boat, but mum saying no and him not doing it. I often say I wil do something that we want. So he will shake his head, think bad things and then get over it.
Okay gotta go get a tad prettier if we are going to go out! LOL
HUGS and I will now get more exercise walking at a good pace cos it is bloody cold! BRRR

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

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.
