#riseandshine Challenge @5 a.m.

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Got up and had my 2 eggs, over easy, plus toast, no butter. Had cranberry juice.

Walked 2 miles, then went and used my kettlebell weights.

#riseandshine Challenge

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

I got up at 5 a.m. and fixed my cheerios with 6 oz. milk, and cranberry juice. I did my Kettlebell exercises, and as soon as it warms up and we get daylight, I will go for my walk.
I live in the country, because of the wildlife around here, we do NOT walk in the dark.

    I do walk in the dark, but only in the summer to avoid the heat and sun of the day. This time of year I always wait until it's light and not raining before I go for a walk. emoticon

5K Walk!

Monday, March 31, 2014

Couldn't help myself. It was a lovely day, and I set out to get a 5K in. It was so nice out and I really didn't have any trouble.

Tomorrow is supposed to be 70 degrees, and I will get out early. Love this weather.

Walking In Cold!

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

Walked to the store today, and got 3 miles in.

Windy and cold, and got a ride home. Truthfully , there was no way I could have made it home. My arthritis was bothering me so bad. A neighbor was coming out of the store and then drove me home.

    Bless your heart! You must have needed those supplies. God is so good about sending help when we really need it. Hope it warms up soon.

Lovely Day

Friday, March 14, 2014

It was so nice out today, and I was inside doing housework. I am hoping to get out and walk tomorrow, I will be attending Mass.

I help a friend of my sisters out. Her son bought his grandmothers house, and every once in a while with decent weather, we go over and work on different things. Now I am a smoker. Things got so bad, I started up again. Anyways, Jo Ann's friend gets very verbal with me about my smell. It got so bad one day after being gone for 7 hours that she called me a stinking bit h, and I said you are the bit h. Now I do not get paid for this job. I have put in several hundred hours. FREE.

Anyways she was telling my sister the other day that if she kept me out all day Saturday, took me to Mass, and we went to her sons and did a few things and waited until 11:30 p.m. and pick her up, that I should be able to quit smoking with 10 hours of not smoking. We have a boxer and she can not be alone and not get outside for that many hours. She is used to having me there.

Jo Ann said, you are lucky she wouldn't kill you. Jo Ann said she does this for free, doesn't complain. She is not your NIGLET. So she said what else ha s she got to do? Jo Ann said, in the summer, I hardly ever see Joyce because she walks to town to catch the bus, and she is gone all day and walks home, or hopefully someone sees her and gives her a lift. She will be gone. Her friend said well I don't know about that.

JoAnn asked me, are you taking that bed of her sons? I said no, I will be able by the end of the year to get one, and I already got the reference letters. I do not need her for anything. I got the letters and that is all I needed. I do not mind helping Kathy, she feels since she makes us a sandwich for lunch that is payment.

I do not smoke around people, in their cars, or homes. Jo told her friend that soon I will be in my own place, and I will then have a life of my own and be able to get out and will quit smoking and lose my weight then. She actually took up for me. Everyone at her job, laugh because they feel that this has gotten out of hand.

This woman thinks I NEED her and a bed to live my life. The only thing was it is a good bed, and her son and his friend would help me move, but I do not need them.

Talk to you all later. Love

    The woman is obviously not your friend, and never had to break a strong habit. In your place I would take the bed, but you have to do what gives you satisfaction. I hope you get your own place soon.

    Good for you for your sister standing up for you! Its wrong for someone to call you names, especially when you are helping them out. You seem to have a plan and goals!

    I will be soooo happy when you can get into a place of your own and do as you please.
I know you will be able to get your weight where you want it and be happy Joyce!!!!!
Have a super weekend. emoticon Nancy
