This morning I did a 10K. The first 2 1/2 miles took 1 hr. Which for me, usually 1 mile in 30 minutes. Then the rest of it took me another 1 hr. and 58 mins. I did a total of 7 miles. But in all, my time was 2 hrs. 58 min. 12 sec. Normally 3 and 1/2 hrs. So I shaved some of my time off. But I should've started an hour earlier, I got caught in the heat of the day.
The thing is: I DID IT.
While I was out, I got my flu shot. I needed to take a breather, and stopped at the pharmacy, and did that. By the way, my time INCLUDES getting the shot.
Thanks for sticking by me. Love you all.

Well I went to the Housing Authority this morning. They said they would see what they could do. You have a limited amount of high rises here. Most are high cost places, you pay 400 - 500 a month, You have to have over $800 month in funds.
With the oil and gas people drilling in town, no place is cheap. They have even built new Hotels and Inns. It is a thriving business. Not a business for the low income people. Anyways it is done. It is a wait and see game.

Tomorrow I go to the Housing Authority to sign the paper work to see about a place to live. I am looking for an affordable apartment, no high rise. It will take 6 - 8 months. I told them it had to be by June.
I am glad this is at least a starting point for me, to get my freedom. I told JoAnn whenever a place came up, I was gone, her debt done or not.
I lost 2 1/2 lbs. this week. I watched what I ate all day, but then I had dinner at 7 p.m. Not great, but I didn't go over my calories. You are all I have. I love you.
Talk to you tomorrow. Love Joyce

I walked a total of 6 miles today. 3 this morning, 1 this afternoon, and 2 after I ate dinner. My goals, since I have MY food in the house is to stick to eatting plenty of veggies, salads, eggs, and some poultry.
I exercise everyday, which I cannot image Not doing.
No junk for snacks. Try not to eat anything after 7 p.m.
Drink plenty of water.
Try to do more weights, and videos.
Keeping my spirits UP, and not letting anyone bring me down. Because for me, that is a real problem, then I eat.
Twice this week, I was offered Fast Food. I refused both times. It wasn't done out of meanness, it was that everyone was bringing in something and offered. But I did say NO.
You will all notice that since I spoke to Mac from Scotland, I have been more upbeat. It is because it was a real friend I was talking to, and it made all the difference in ther world. You all are important to me. Never forget that. Without you, I am nothing. With all of you, I can conquer the world.

Tuesday I will go to the Housing people with ALL of my paperwork. The woman said, we would do the application together, and it is misleading. It is only Me who needs info. I will be Head Of Household. That made my day.
Yes I feel like a prisoner in JoAnns home. It is a lovely home, but come on, I could livee in a bug-free shack, and be happy, as long as I had internet.
I am very excited about this. It is countdown time. I WILL do this. I will succeed.
Love you all.
