Wednesday, August 24, 2011

I went for a walk with my Mom she is 81. I could not walk as fast,but it was good to walk with Mom & talk. Met a cat along the way that followed us for awhile. The breeze was blowing ever so gently, & the good smells of wild flowers brought me back to those days as a child walking through the fields.

I see, smell,walk & remember

Sunday, August 21, 2011

Hello everyone it has been awhile since I have blogged. I must add I have been going through a lot lately. My husband was in hospital for 6 days with Sepsis ( a blood Infection ) My Mom has been with me for awhile & will continue to be until her place is done being renovated which is upsetting her, she likes to be in her own home. I also am going through my own depression or lack of motivation in ANYTHING. My spark friend Karen ask me to join her on a journey to being fit & healthy. Her son is in Afghanistan & she told me he is willing to go & defend our country she should at least be able to take care of her healthy side. This was last night. I woke up at 6:30 & went on a brisk 2 mile walk, then I came home & did a 10 minute work out from Sparks with NIcole. I even drank a glass of water. I have not walked or worked out in sometime. I thought of Karen's son * all the other men & women over there. I thought how happy they would be if they could walk on our soil. As I went along the way I looked at all the beautiful purple, pinks & yellows in the wild flowers. I smelled the sweet scent of the good earth, the smells of the pines & different trees. I walked, & remembered how good it is to have our many freedoms. I have trees to see & smell as well as flowers , I walk in the open with out worry. how blessed we are to live in Our America. Thank you Karen for reminding me we must never for get or take those freedoms for granted.

I went back yeah !!!!

Monday, July 11, 2011

Well this evening I went back to working out,. I did an hour of Zumba. I swam for 20 minutes. I wanted to at least get 30 minutes in the swim.but a little child threw up in the pool so everyone had to get out. I have been away from working out for awhile, using too many excuses. Actually felt good even though it was blazing hot, even with the air conditioner on. I came home & grilled eggplant & squash so good.

Not so good but not so bad after all

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

Today was a tough day at work very busy,at times stressful. I had a healthy lunch today & a very light dinner.I managed to eat a combination of 1 fruit, & 4 vegetable. More than normal. I only had 2 glasses of water. I need to get on with that. I did not get a chance to really work out just a 10 min walk. I had a family matter that took that away . I could have done a lot better, but I am starting out good. The stress I had today due to work & the family issue today, I did not allow it to let myself eat endlessly as I usually do. So I guess I can say after all it was really not so bad when I could have really over indulged. Tomorrow is another day where I shall do my best to add one more fruit, one more vegetable & a better & more work out.

    It sounds like you had some good choices in spite of the day. emoticon

I thought I would have a huge problem getting enough water when I started, then I started trying to get a certain amount before I left for work, then before lunch...that seemed to help.

I was beat up guess who did the bashing?

Monday, July 04, 2011

Oh my what we do & say in the time of day. Okay you read what I posted this morning. This is what went on the rest of the day. My husband & I packed up the motorcycle with picnic food, went to a beautiful park along the water,enjoyed the time. Arrived home & I alone ate all the picnic food up never had to put it away. I felt like a turkey on Thanksgiving day I know if you put a pin in me feathers would have spewed forth. I sat there in my chair reeling with disgust with what I did for several hours. I finally got up & went on a 4 mile walk, had no intentions of walking that far because it is so hot out. Well the first 2 miles I beat my self up I passed a water hole & if I did not duck the upper cut from the inner me bashing myself I would have fallen flat in the water. On the way back the last 2 miles I listened to my surroundings I listened to the sounds of the singing birds if we had no music we could listen to their sweet singing, the shadows from the sun starting to go down, cast shadows among the trees & over the meadows of flowers & it seemed to look like a golden glow. If we had no artist we have God as our artist I seen the setting sun casting a shadow on me making my silhouette look tall & slender. I wanted to jump inside my shadow & be tall & slender. Then I heard the sound of my breathing, knowing God gave me my breath as he did the birds & his design of the beauty of the flowers the sunset etc.. I live in this vessel of a body & mind & I am not taking care of what I have been given. I came back home & reading my Sparks book about taking the fast break check I will be taking smaller bites of everything I intend to set for my new goals. I weigh 151 pounds. I will blog every day to be accountable for what I do. I feel so good since that walk. I took a cool shower drank 2 glasses of ice water, & feel clear in my head

    That's exactly what I have done so many times. I love to walk, and many days the first part of it is spent thinking about things that upset me, things I need to do or should have done, etc. Like you, though, after awhile, I do begin to settle and look at what is around me and listen to the sounds, even in town.

Thank you for your post!

    my hubby walks at night and i know he beats on himself and then relaxes on the way back. on rainy days when he does not walk he is harder on himself and i try to be a positive reflection so he can feel better.

    It is good that you recognized your trip up with eating all that food, but it's GREAT that instead of saying 'forget it' because of the mishap (like I have done on many occasions) you got up and did something about it! Kudos to you! Also glad you were able to enjoy the nature on your 2 mile return. Blogging everyday is a good way to stay accountable. I bet you felt amazing after your walk. Great job! May the scale reflect your hard work!
