I did it!

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

I got on the treadmill for 55 minutes last night! I feel righteous/proud/whatever.

And today, I did ST while we 'watched' shows we'd taped last night. Yea for me! Ok, enuf breaking my arm patting myself on my back.

I stayed in all nutrition goals yesterday, even had 1/2 C ice cream! But I blew it today - a little. Stayed within some goals, and the ones I went over, were not by much.

I'm planning on (COUNTING on) walking with my buddy tomorrow afternoon, so that last 1.5 lbs MUST COME OFF before Next Wednesday. That's just an interim goal, but psycologically important to me. When I make it, I'll weight the same as I did 5+ years ago. Yea!!!

I'm not actually looking at the additional chunk of lbs to lose, but will make (small) goals along the way to my ultimate weight goal. And, I AM living a more healthy lifestyle - have room to make more improvements, but I'm DOING IT! I AM WINNING!

Ok, I spent just about all day at my dau's place. She's healing nicely, but of course, still is on pain meds.

I am SO PROUD of me! I took healthy food to her house, and ate only that. On top of that, I also did ST while there! Now, I just have to let dinner settle a little more, then get on the treadmill for awhile. I miss walking with my buddy, but I'm determined to do what I can to make it Wednesday (our next scheduled day).

I got a cortisone shot in my elbow again this morning, and it's VERY bruised, so quite sore. I hope that puts the tendonitis where it belongs.....AWAY FROM ME!! I talked with the dr about surgery, and that's a possibility down the road. This was the 3rd cortisone shot in that elbow in 6 months.....it just doesn't last long enuf.

Ok, thru feeling sorry for myself. Y'all have a GREAT evening, and a good night's sleep.


November 1st

New day, new week, new month. Time to get a better hold on myself and behave. I haven't done as well with even cardio this week, and food? SHAME on me! BUT, I refuse to let all that defeat me. I very much want to lose another 2.5 lbs in the next 10 days. I'm going to work hard on that.

I'm still having some trouble with food: I love it, I'm tempted by the leftover halloween candy (my husband won't let me throw it out) especially the CHOCOLATE! And I've been using weak things as excuses for not getting the exercise I should. Well, maybe not ALL weak excuses: I spent all of Fri (until I got home about 9 p.m.) taking care of my daughter - a lot of that time at the hospital. BUT, I probably could have gotten on the treadmill during the couple of hours that we were at my house before I took her home to her husband. sigh. Guess I'm due for a REAL SERIOUS talk with myself about excuses. I know what to do/not do, so I need to GET WITH IT! I'll be spending another LOOOOOONG day with dau tomorrow, but already am planning to do some strength exercises, and am taking healthy snack. Also, something to benefit us both: a DVD of Anita Renfrow. She's hysterical! Google her, if you aren't already familiar with her. I expect HJ and I will be laughing our hearts healthy for a long time tomorrow. emoticon

    Sounds like your getting on the right track. it is a new day, a new week and a new month. Time for me to get really back on track too. Here it is November. When the really BIG Holidays come. The time where we really do need help and motivation from each other.

Good luck on your goals! emoticon

Friday evening

Friday, October 30, 2009

This has been a looooong day. Took my adult child to the hospital for outpatient surgery on her knee. Kept her with us until her hubby got home from work, about 7:30 p.m. (yawn) Not much is more boring than sitting in a hospital waiting room. The dr said he fixed HJ's knee, and she's resting fairly comfortably, with the help of Vicodin. : ) That means she's half-loopy. LOL

Bob and Darby had a great evening with trick-or-treaters last night. Darby only barked when the first 10 or so kids rang the doorbell, then she just alerted Bob before the bell rang after that. She waited back from the open door like a lady, and even enjoyed petting from a few kids. Things went far better than either Bob or I thought would be. I had a good time at knitting group.

(yawn) sorry - it's time for me to catch up on some sleep.
Oh, I should tell on myself: Only walked one day this week for this reason and that excuse. Maybe I can get myself out the door (if not raining) tomorrow to help make up for it.

My walking buddy had to do something else yesterday, and I made several excuses so I didn't walk either. sigh.

I DID get exercise this morning, with the heavy cleaning of a kitten room at an animal shelter. Takes me about 90 minutes to get it all done, partly because I have to watch I don't step on 'anyone'. : ) I love doing it, and it's tremendously good for exercise.....for ex, I sweep, vac, then mop and dry the lino floor, moving a BIG, heavy kennel out of the way and back again.

Tonight is knitting - my hubby urged me to go even tho' he (and the dog) will be home alone for the trick-or-treaters. I'm going knitting. LOL Althought it would be amusing to witness Darby's reaction every time someone came to the door. Darby 'woofs' an announcement every time someone comes to the door, so tonight ought to funny. But Bob says he's up for it.

    What are you knitting? and I hope you enjoyed your evening. I take my knitting to work and knit during the breaks. It would have been funny if the trick-or-treaters visited where you were; thank you for the blog. Take care. emoticon
