I walked with Madonna last night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

All day at work I was thinking of what I would be doing when I left work. I was off at 5 that is an hour & 1/2 earlier than usual. My plans were to walk out side right after work grab my walking shoes & go. I always have that plan, but I would sit down first then not go, not this time I went outside so fast you would think I was being chased. Oh yeah I grabbed my MP3 player. I put in the buds & off I went & Madonna was singing away the beat was catchy, I noticed how fast I was waling with the beat & my arms swinging back & forth like a monkey, my head was held high like a giraffe. Madonna sang to me the entire 2 miles YIPPY SKIPPY I did it!!!!

    Yay for your walk, that's great, you push forward!

How I wish I can listen to my favourite songs while jumping - I did try but singing along while jumping made me lose my concentration and end up with lots of rope tripping instead of rope jumping LOL BUT listening while walking or on elliptical OR cleaning definitely help things feel like move so fast :D

I gave up gym memebership to start working out in my home ( photos )

Sunday, January 06, 2013


I have everything to work out with in my home instead of paying at the gym,my husband put up mirrors so I can check out my form when I do my free weights. I really do not like the treadmill, I watch tv while on it, or look around at the walls . When i see the tiger in the picture I pretend I am on a safari when I get tired in my mind of tramping through the forest, I look over at the picture with the ballet slippers in the photo & remember when I did ballet. Or I look at the artificial flowers on the one stand & think of the kinds of flowers I will be getting this spring to plant. before you know it it is time to get off that dreaded treadmill. This weekend was so nice even with the snow my husband & I went for our walks outdoors.I have 4 early days off this week instead of working to 6:30 it will be 5:00 so I have a half hour before the night falls. I am really really trying to work out every day cardio & strength. Have a wonderful week everyone.

    I've done something similar. I have a one-room house (about 300 square feet), and a fair proportion of it is devoted to exercise. I have simple and inexpensive equipment like yoga mat, mini trampoline, hula hoop, dumbbells, and exercise videos. And mirrors! This year I didn't renew my gym membership. I love working out at home, and as you mentioned, we can also walk outdoors. Good luck!

    Boy, you really duded up. Every space in your house is cover. You've given me a new goal. We moved into our new house last year the day before Christmas and had one measly tree. We've done better this Christmas but have a way to go to reach the standard you've set. (By the by, I am 60 also.)
Way to go and have a most blessed New year beginning right now.

How opposite are you with your husband or partner & still have a meaing relationship? read my list

Monday, December 10, 2012

My husband & I are so opposite no one knows how we even came to be. My list of our oppositions.
1. I am romantic Gary is not
2. I love classical music , opera, & bluesy music, Gary like's the 60,70 & 80's music
3. i love our local plays, plus going to Broadway in New York City, Gary does not like plays
4. I love all kinds of ethnic foods , Gary is a plain meat & potato eater he never had a casserole dish , not even macaroni salad or potato salad the only soup he ever ate was chilli & tomato
5.I love the rain, it depresses Gary
6. I love back ground sounds, Gary likes silence
7.I love drama on television shows, Gary likes comedy
8.I get all beside myself when things happen & Gary is so calm he says come sit here by me & tell be all about it.Then I feel better because he listened, while I ranted then he says don't you feel better now!!!
9. I love anything old.. items, houses , old buildings. Gary likes the modern
the list could go on,but I do not want to drag it out
What holds us together with so many opposites.
1.That we have respect for one another in the things we each love in life. ( even when they are opposite.)
2.We are both compassionate about those that have less, we help them out
3.We laugh together about the silly things we do at times
4. We love to camp & then when rain comes in the night it sounds so beautiful as it falls on the camper , then we cuddle together, then Gary is not depressed because it is at night
5. We go for hours & sometimes all day on our motorcycle
6. We love nature outdoors & watch certain shows of nature,on Public broadcasting
7. We both like airplane shows, (& built together planes to fly they are remote control )
8. We both sit down together to discuss buying anything large & costly,if we need to talk about issues the tv is shut off ,radio & phone come's off the hook, that way we have each other;s undivided attention.The issue may not be solved, but we both know that each other are aware of the issue & what each other is feeling. I use to work with 95 % women when i was younger, I heard a lot of them say their husbands ought to know what they are thinking. I said if I ever married that would never happen

    My DH and I are different in almost every way, except we almost both always want to use the microwave or the kitchen sink at the exact same time. We also both like to run the dishwasher or washing machine while the other one is in the shower. So we have all the really important things in common. lol

    My DH and I are so very different....sometimes that is why I get so excited when he goes away so that I can do what I want when I want. We do have a few things in common that keep us interested but I wonder sometimes as well what brought us together. Somehow we make it work.
Have a great evening.

    My husband and I are very different in many things, but not in religion or money. As time has passed and the hard edges of opinion inevitably soften, we have become more alike. It all works out.

    I understand that completely. My husband and I are totally different in most everything and yet, if we walk into a furniture store or into an art gallery alone and at totally different times, we would each walk out with the same items. Go figure. It works and it is so nice that it does work.

I went for a pick me up & I got something else instead!!!!

Sunday, November 25, 2012

Saturday was the day to go for a make over . I was so nervous as this was the first time that I went to this hairdresser for a much needed hair color & a new style. We thought to go back to my normal color of a light brown with just a few high lights sprinkled through out my hair. I did not look in the mirror as everything was being done to transform me. The moment came as she handed me the big mirror to check out the transformation. What I saw in this mirror was a fat rounded face, she bent down & ask if I liked it I said " oh yes ' (still not looking at my hair ) As she spun the chair around so I could see my self as a whole in the mirror on the wall I really did love my hair, but that is not what I really saw at first. What I must do is transform my thinking of changing my thoughts of how & what & when I eat, & the process of working out instead of skipping over it. The woman in the mirror IS going to change, notice I said is, not MAYBE , not HOPEFULLY but IS !!!!!!!!!

    Positive thinker! You'll get there! I find it's hard to shelve a lifetime of doing and thinking about self in one fell swoop. The fact you're aware that something needs to be changed, is halfway there I think. And you've set your mind to changing it!
