Beautiful walk by the lake...

Sunday, October 07, 2012

I had a great walk tonight by the lake w/ my husband and my dog, Molly. It was so awesome watching Molly explore the lake front. She has never been to the lake before and she had to sniff everything.

My eating went well today and I also had a great walk! Sparkpeople also went well.

My goal today was to shred at least one bag of paper and that was met as well.

Tomorrow I have work again and then off for one day. For Monday, I would like to continue with the shredding and unpack the two boxes left for the bathroom.

    You seem to be settling in to you new digs. Do you hear from your daughter very much? How is she getting along with you now not so conveniently located?

    Isn't it nice when your exercise actually feels like chill out time, the lake sounds lovely, I wish I had a lake that close but any lake near where I live is at least a 40 min drive which is ok maybe once a week but it's a bit of a treck.

Well done on managing your goals

Work, Unpack, rest....

Saturday, October 06, 2012

I didn't do much w/ Sparkpeople today. I needed to work on some financial clean-up and I worked 10 hours today as well. Moving is sure expensive!

I am so ready to be done w/ this unpacking and chaos. We did get a little bit more put away and moved out of the way. I think the plan for tomorrow is to have at least the livingroom and kitchen put together for a little bit of normalcy.

Two more days of work before a day off.


Work 10 hours...
Shred on bag of paper....

Me thinks, I need several days of rest........

Friday, October 05, 2012

Still don't feel well. I keep going back and forth of feeling ok and then feeling like crap, for lack of a better word. I think I need several days in bed and a total body cleanse to take care of all of the stuff I had been eating over the last 3 weeks. In addition, my body is sore all over, especially in my neck and left shoulder. My head hurts. It almost feels like a minor case of flu. Oh please no....

No exercise today, did eat a little better today and did get some points today, although not quite at my goal.

I won't be able to do nothing if I don't feel well so off to bed I go! emoticon

Day of relaxation, learning and unpacking.

Thursday, October 04, 2012

I am starting to feel back to normal in the sense my house is coming back together again. Still much to unpack, but things are starting to end up where they belong. I don't want to just shove things away because my goal is to reduce my material goods. Today, I realized that I have way too many books and may have to downsize on them. I certainly don't have room for all of them right now.

I have also been able to spend some quality time with my husband. We walked down to the lake again today even though it was cold and windy. The water has such a calming influence on us.

This afternoon, I took a nap to combat my headache and possible shoulder strain. I will need to be careful that I don't cause additional damage.

Tomorrow my husband will be making his famous chili and I will be working 6 am to 5 pm. I think I will unpack a couple more boxes of books, see what I can purge and also need to put some things away in the bathroom.

BTW - 100 points sparking yesterday!

    All the best to your unpacking. Slow and easy gets it done. I'm still unpacking boxes in the basement from my move last September. But, like you, I'm letting go of a LOT of stuff. Enjoy the chili!

Awesome backyard for me!

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Today I went to explore my backyard...actually the lake that is less than a 10 minute walk from my new home. I went for an 80 minute walk on the beach, took lots of photos and just sat and let the negativity fall away from me while taking in the energy from the water. I absolutely made the right decision for my move. Now this walk on the beach was one heck of a workout in sand and rock, more resistance than a paved road or sidewalk.

I am still struggling w/ the eating and getting the points I need to make my goal, but I will definitely make an effort tonight.

I did more unpacking today in my kitchen and it should be done by tomorrow the latest! I also need to complete the unpacking of my office so I can decorate for fall/halloween/thanksgiving and submit my photos to my company to include in team spirit!

    What a beautiful view! Just take one day or even 1 meal / moment at a time if you need to. It's great that you are happy with your new move and when you're settled it will probably be easier to track your meals and points. You have a great attitude, I'm sure you're going to do fine. :)
