Plodding along

Monday, May 10, 2010

Working away on my change of lifestyle. Realized today when talking to my friend that over the last year or two, I have gone from no exercise to 10 minute walk the 15 and now a 30 minute walk each day with my dog.
He's happy and makes sure I go the long way!

    ... and your friend is just back from walking the dog... every step I take today is one I wasn't taking a few years ago so it's win-win all the way :)

emoticon I've also used my new stretch bands for resistance training on my arms... something I never thought I'd say *lol*

Getting real about weight that needs to go

Monday, April 26, 2010

I have put on my ticker who much weight I really need to lose. I am not looking at a too skinny goal weight, in fact the goal is slightly above the number needed to not be fat.
But I am finally getting real. No wonder I have diabetes and high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Wish me luck!

Vegetarian gets me annoyed.

Saturday, April 24, 2010

No, vegetarians don't annoy me, but going out to a dinner and having the vegetarian entry can. I got a lovely veg. meal at a dinner the other day and all the people at my table (who I know well), asked "are you vegetarian?" Well I am most of the time now, but I still have some meat. But I had some teeth out a week ago and am still on fairly soft stuff. Meat isn't working right now and it was the traditional rubber chicken at this dinner.
Well then the guy who works in the beef industry was, "have you gone vegetarian?" in horror and I had to explain again about the teeth because I didn't want to get into it with him.
Then I said to them, I can't believe my boldness but I was fed up with the remarks.
"I find it amazing how many people comment on my vegeatarian meal but as a fat person, no one has ever commented when I have ice cream (thank goodness)" That shut them up.
Really, folks, it is rude to comment on others food choices.
But hey, the veg meal was the best at the table, I have to say.
Tonight I am at a dinner that is prepared by people in their home, so I am not going to bother with the vegetarian bit, though will probably only have a few bites of the meat, due to my healing teeth.

    I totally agree with you....it is rude to comment on others food choices. I especially don't like it when someone pulls out their lunch at work and someone always has to say....ewwww you eat that?? or something along those lines. If any one ever comments on my food choice I just look at them and say, I'm the one eating it, not you.

I loved your comeback comment!! Good for you :)

I ran

Saturday, April 24, 2010

Today I had a long walk, my Jane Jacobs route for next week. Took the dog. He was playing in the school yard and wanted me to play to. So I took a few running steps and he ran and ran, so happy.
