Sadness?

Thursday, June 25, 2009

I just heard about Michael Jackson, and I just want to cry, Why? Maybe because he was a great singer, and he was my beloved son RILEY's favorite singer. Dang, it hurts!!!

GOD please give his family peace and strength to get through these times, Amen

    When an icon of society passes it is so hard but we had 3 in 24 hours-- so hard to grasp.

    Wow, I'm glad I checked out your blog cause I had no idea he passed. Man in the Mirror is a favorite motivational song of mine; always gets me thinking about making positive changes. He was a great musical artist and performer and I hope he's at peace. His music will live on!

    It is so sad and I couldnt believe it. I grew up having his posters on my bedroom wall. I am praying for his family, and may he find peace in his final resting place.

    I am just hoping he has the peace and happiness he didn't seem to have in this life. This is really sad because the peace he did have was being a father and has now left three young children behind.

Sidetracked..........not all bad

Sunday, June 21, 2009

I did only three days of exercise this week and that was Mon,Tue, and Wed. For the last three days I've been cleaning, re-organizing, and re-arranging my entire house and I'm still working on it. I for sure am not snacking aimlessly and my food is planned so things are not so bad. It feels so good to know where things are when I need it, and to have my family satisfied and happy, but just have to get back to the cooking. Well sparkfriends you all have a blessed week. emoticon

    Three days of planned exercise is good, and don't think you aren't burning calories while working on your house. Do you have stairs, because I have a basement and an attic, and I know that while I am sorting cleaning reorganizing I get in alot of steps. Hope you are feeling well this week.

    Housework is exercise! AND as long as youkeep busy you are less likely to overeat! Wtg

    That housework sounds like a lot of exercise. It counts as long as it isn't something you do everyday as a matter of course. All the re-arranging couldn't be something you do all the time!

    there's more than 1 way to skin a cat! heavy housework like reorganizing counts as exercise, just a different kind! there's even ways to log it into your fitness tracker here on SP! It's under cardio, home activities, heavy cleaning/moving boxes etc... or log some minutes into the quicktracker if you use that instead.... woohoo! ;)

Overdone?

Thursday, June 18, 2009

So I've decided to go with 30 minutes per day and see how that works out. Also today is my nephews birthday and there is going to be a party so I won't know whats on the menu until I get there. I do plan on eating in moderation so it's ok, or maybe I'll just my daughter first and then let me know what their eating so if it's not compatible then I can cook something at home, besides me and my husband are not party people, we're homebodies emoticon

    I always go with the one bite rule on gatherings because something like that isn't often for me either. I am a homebody too!

Beginning Again :)

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

So the first thing I did when I got up, was to get ready and go to the fitness center. I worked out for only fifteen minutes but to me it was worth it and I plan on going back this evening for at least 30 minutes. Tomorrow I plan to get back to Curves too and then next Tuesday I want to go back to my TOPS group. It feels so good to be a "homebody", I can care for me, my husband, my grandson, my daughter and foster daughter, and best of all I can get back to Sunday Church service. So here I go to the happier and stress free MEEEEEeee! emoticon

    I'm so glad you can stay home & care for you & family ( don't forget to be kind to yourself too).
It's a blessing to be able to do that.
Hugs,

And I so hear you about church! I should know by the end of the week if I can keep the Monday -Friday schedule or have to go back to Sunday thru Thursday.
Hugs,

    Good morning, I'm so happy that you are being so positive. Each day is so hard and for the loss you have suffered it is even harder. I too belong to TOPS. I've belonged for a long time now but have gone up and down. One time I even lost 100 lbs back then I was down to 239. Now i'm up so high it's ridiculous. I am trying to stay good now, joined a challenge and am thinking positive. Please have a good day. Veronica
