reached a goal

Tuesday, October 06, 2009

I reached a goal of actually DOING some strength exercises. I know, what have I been doing up to now? (not going to answer that directly). I'm a basically lazy person when it comes to exercising, except my walking buddy keeps me walking - we're doing great! I am determined to do strength exercises at least a few times a week - baby steps, folks, baby steps. When I get to that goal, I can add another day per week. etc.

    Good job. The more of these changes that turn into habits - the better!!

Ok, so yesterday was an up-and-down day, but I did pretty well staying w/in my nutrition goals.

Today, I walked the mile (uphill) to my friend's house and we walked for 40 minutes up and down hills; then I walked the mile home. I know I burned a lot of calories, and my metabolism is up - hopefully, it'll burn off another bunch of calories.

Let's go Spark!


Today's a new day

Saturday, October 03, 2009

Yeah, I was lazy yesterday, but my walking friend and I walked 2 miles yesterday afternoon - so I wasn't a total slug for the whole day. : D

I need to make a b'day cake for my husband - the big test will be that I won't gobble up half the cake! He's supportive when I say things like, "I've lost.....pounds" - BUT I can't clear the houe of bad goodies and junk. Makes it a little harder for me, but I'm working on it. I've made one SP receipe so far, and he liked it. He knows what I'm making tomorrow (Lentil Loaf) and isn't too thrilled.

Hubby knows because he cooks week days and I cook weekends - and he's mostly in charge of the kitchen. I do, however, pick up some 'just healthy' stuff at the store, even if I'm the only one who will eat it.

I can only RARELY buy lo-fat this or that, even when I say "you won't know the difference when it's in a receipe". He claims lo-fat means NO TASTE.

Well, he's pleased with me that I'm losing weight, and I've let him know I have a box of clothes in the next size down from what I'm still in. So, I shouldn't have to buy a bunch until I get ANOTHER size down. emoticon


So it's Friday

Friday, October 02, 2009

So it's Friday and I feel LAZY today. Good thing my walking partner (SHIRL70) and I have a walk scheduled for this afternoon. She keeps me accountable.

Maybe I'll wake up more in my shower. (yawn) Or maybe I'll just decide to give myself the day off - except for this afternoon's walk. Would that be so bad?


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...
