October 1st!!!

My, how time flies! And I swear it picks up speed the older I get!

I DID finish my housework yesterday, after procrastinating all week. I felt so much better mentally for DOING it.

I walked for 30 minutes (with the dog) after getting home from cleaning the kitten room at a no-kill shelter. I call that my weekly kitty-fix. I also call it great exercise because I do what I call heavy cleaning for 90 or so minutes! Yea!! Must be working - clothes fitting better, weight coming off.

Go to knitting group tonight, but am cross stitching because knitting takes too big a toll on tennis elbow. sigh. One of these days...


Keeping the spark!

Mentally, I'm charged. Physically, I'm doing well. Now all I have to do is finish my housework - there's so little left to do, but I'm dragging my feet - I'd rather read. Guess I'll 'reward' myself with reading after I finish the cleaning. Then it won't be hanging over my head any more.

I'm looking forward to this afternoon's walk with my friend. We keep each other on track, making it much easier to get the exercise we need to.

It's fall here - highs barely in the 60's - but I LIKE fall.

Haven't been using sparkpeople entirely as I should the past couple of days; but I have to update today - I lost three lbs over the weekend, in spite of being out of town!!! Ok, now I have a broken arm from patting myself on the back. LOL

I also lost 1/2 inch in my waist. Now THAT's important. I just joined SparkPeople back on 9 Aug, but started losing weight in mid-July when we got home from a 5 week trip. I'd gained weight on that trip, and hadn't eaten properly. Well, I'm please to announce that since the middle of July, I've lost a total of 15 lbs. I've lost 10 of those lbs with the help of Spark People and all my new friends.

THAT's incentive to keep doing what's right and stop doing what's wrong.

I'm tickled pink! I weighed and measured myself again today because I'm going on a women's retreat weekend and won't be home Sunday morning to do it. Why am I tickled pink? Because I lost those two vacation pounds I'd gained; and recouped a bit of the inches, too.

This weekend will be a food-challenge - I eat so much better when home - but I've made plans. Also, the fact that I've lost those two lbs is incentive for me to do my best with eating this weekend. I'll be walking SOME, but won't be able to gauge it like I want to, and won't have computer access to record stuff. But I'm planning to keep track (on paper) of my food and water intake.

    You rock! great news loosing 2 pound that you gain and your attitude is a reason to continue the feeling of "I did it" is with you now and even though you are going on a retreat others will be there who are probably watching there weight too and walking is a good exercise to do and writing down what you eat along the way is really going to help you! So enjoy yourself you already got your goals set so have fun and share some laughs now!

Ok, have been home (from vacation) over 24 hrs - got on the scale this a.m. and found all that great seafood put 2 pounds on me....not surprised, just a depressing fact. Thought of something this a.m. in the shower (after the treadmill) - 'I need food for fuel, but I don't have to pull an entire tank truck full around with me!'

Maybe that will help keep me from eating so very much.
