My walk this morning

Monday, October 26, 2009

Since I have an appt at the time I usually walk with my buddy, I walked this morning. The sun is shining, sky is blue with a few puffy clouds, I heard a stream gurgling, saw the changing colors of leaves, breathed fresh air. Had a splendid time with God.

Since it's still just in the mid-40's, I started out with a lightweight jacket and gloves. About 10 minutes into my walk, the gloves came off. A few minutes later, I started unsnapping the jacket - arrived home to cool down on the treadmill, then do some stretches. I feel good!

I hope everyone else is doing well.

Sunday musings

Sunday, October 25, 2009

October has been missions emphasis month at our church, and today we heard two more missionaries - the one in Sunday School teaches English as a 2nd language in Bangladesh and our sermon was brought by the son of another church member. The younger man is director of Great Northern missions - covers Alaska, Canada and Greenland. Both good.

This evening is a missions banquet, and the gentleman will be speaking again at that.

I tried another SparkPeople receipe for lunch - Parmesan Tilapia Fish. It's GOOD and even got a 'do-over' from my husband. (a do-over means to do it again some day). I used flounder instead of tilapia, but will likely use tilapia the next time. Yum!

The sun is shining beautifully this afternoon, but I think I'd better turn in for a short nap - not only is that a Sunday habit, but I didn't rest as well last night as I should have.

I'm rejoicing that I lost another pound this past week, and a quarter inch in my hips! That's not easy for someone who comes from a looong heredity line of women with big hips/thighs.

I'm looking forward to a walk tomorrow morning before heading to my grandsons' schools - we volunteer in both of their classes. As a friend of mine observed, 'Nancy, how did you ever find time to work?' emoticon

I retired last year, and don't miss the get-up-before-dawn stuff at all.

Saturday 10/24

Saturday, October 24, 2009

Yesterday was a day I normally would have walked with my buddy, but due to other appts, etc, we didn't go grocery shopping until early afternoon, and by the time I was almost done, it was pouring! Then, I didn't even get on my treadmill. sigh. BUT! The day wasn't a total loss - I did do strength exercises.

Today I treadmilled for 40 mins - still pouring outside.

It's the weekend, so I'm responsible for meal prep both days. Am planning to fix an oven-baked chicken fingers dish - low in cal, fat, etc. We enjoyed it the other time I made it.

Tomorrow is church, then hubby and I will attend a Missions Banquet tomorrow evening. Agreed to help clean up afterwards. No day of rest for me. : )

Have a splendid weekend, every one.

    I expect missionaries are very blessed that people like you support them.

Guess I'm gettin' old : )

Friday, October 23, 2009

Yesterday my oldest child turned 38. sigh. How did she get so old - I don't feel old.

I'm in a very positve mood today - did some strength training this morning and plan to walk with my buddy this afternoon. Of course, if it rains, my treadmill will feel my feet instead. LOL

Have a great day everyone.

  I agree with you. Not a day goes by without noticing our body is aging.
But I'm glad you are able to walk without the support of a cane.

I've notice my 60+ friends are trying to walk with the help of encourage grandchildren.
I sometime have to push myself out of the comfort of a chair.
I do chair exercise.

Keep out the good work. emoticon

Another good day

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

Today was beautiful again, and my walking buddy and I walked for 40 minutes today. We live in hilly neighborhoods, so we get a good workout.

I've started tracking sodium intake, and yesterday was AWFUL! Today was within my goal range. Yea!

Took Darby (our pit bull) to training this eve, and I'm excited that she's now learning 'stay'. Have to work more on that this week, but at least I now know the correct way to train her.
