Accomplishmnt's that even surprised me!!!

Sunday, July 01, 2012

I power washed the entire house today ,it felt so refreshing with the water cascading down on me with the ninety some degree humid weather. Then washed all the windows that I did lately ,because I did not think of the water spots that would be left. oh well more exercise in that.Then I polished kitchen cabinets with old English oil,hung out 3 loads of laundry.then I did 4 test in order to keep my pharmacy licenses up. Must take 21 credits & one in Pharmacy law every 2 years. The very first year I received my license I was audited from the state. I had to send in proof I took the 21 credits.I keep them on back up just in case. Mine are due to be sent in July 28th so I will get that all together this coming week. I feel I accomplished quite a bit today. I even had a chance to sit a bit & read a few chapters in my book on the porch swing sipping ice cold water!!! Hope every one had a good Sunday Take care
Judy

Coming up the basement steps guess what I did????

Saturday, June 30, 2012

Half way up the steps I thought gee what could I use these steps for beside going up them. I stopped & did my push ups. I put my legs down on several steps leaned forward & did 3 sets of 21 push ups !!!!! If you do not have a basement use the staircase steps we do not because we have a ranch home all one floor.

I ask the store associates where the large size's were guess what they told me??

Thursday, June 28, 2012

I had gone to a store to buy some tops & was not familiar where they were . I ask the one associate where the large sizes were she pointed to where they were & then she said.' the plus sizes are down the other isle.' I thought gee I must look bigger than I thought I was. Then after some time I ask another associate if there was a section where there were other large tops she said.' the plus sizes are over there. ' I was so upset I left the store. I stopped at another store & I tried on so many tops in a large sizes, Guess what I had to go to an extra large. I was so upset with myself NEVER have I wore an extra large. So just for the heck of it I tried on some plus sizes. I was happy then because they just hung on me!!!! You see if I did not I would have been so depressed what the associates said to me about going to a plus size. I am disappointed in going to an extra large, but I now have to really work on this body of mine. My tops were snug since last year, so I new I had put weight on that is why I had to go for new ones.So I will let it ring in my thoughts what they said as a lesson that I better get on the move or I will be at a plus size. maybe this is what I needed to here from the associates even though it mad me mad !!!

    Come on, you can do it girlfriend......"step away from the plus sizes"....life is just too darn short to put junk in your mouth that will take you into plus sizes. You just don't need it. Remember my best tip ever is to tell yourself you can have anything but first you must eat something substantial and nutritious. Usually by the time you do this you won't want the junk. It takes several days to get the junk out of your system and the cravings but once you do you honestly will crave good nutritious foods. Ask yourself this question before putting it in your mouth..."is this food have any good vitamins or nutrients?".....if not, skip it!

    I agree you can only look at this in a positive way! They were negative you weren't and so you can turn this around and be a positive!

Take care Judy!

I did NOT want to do this tonight!!!!!!!!!

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

I did something I had not done since last year I walked on the treadmill what a time I had, took me 24 minutes to go one mile at speed of 2.5 miles per hour. I was perspiring so bad. I was not even half way through & I wanted to quit. However I kept thinking of all the people in sparks that are pushing themselves & I am complaining like I was!!! I trudged on. I want to each day do something different. I am so out of shape because of being a slug. I had to force myself tonight on the treadmill . I ached with my back for 9 & 1/2 hours at work had 3 hours sleep last night. I was cranky. I kept thinking of the tread mill, I was thinking of all the stories that are posted on the blogs how you all push yourselves when you do not want to work out. I thought I cannot whimp out I have to do this because so many of you are pushing onward when you also are tired & hurting, When I finished that mile I was so happy & felt satisfied because I did it I know it was only a mile but it is a start.

    I did my first mile walk about 3 weeks ago now. It's contagious I hate exercise I wont lie and say its great, but pushing myself to see how much I really can do is addictive. I signed up for the virtual 5k the week of July 29th. I am nervous and excited. Now it feels wrong not to do some kind of work out every day. I also joined the 10 minute a day work out group. It keeps me accountable.

Congratulations on beating your inner demons tonight! They didn't want you to walk; but, you overcame that and succeeded! You should be proud!

We all have days we just don't want to exercise. Today was a tough one for me as well. I had planned on hitting the treadmill when I got up; but, I overslept. So I took my sneakers to work planning on walking prior to lunch as I've done all week; but, that fell apart. By the time I got home from work, I didn't want to do it at all. It took alot of self-lecturing to get me to actually get on the darn thing. Once I was done, I was proud of myself for not caving in. It's a good feeling!

Keep up the good work!
Deb
