Why is it when someone else weighs me in I stick better to making good choices?

Saturday, August 06, 2011

Why is it when I know someone will know my weight I make better choices?

Why is exercising better when I am part of a Sparkteam challenge?

Why is it that posting all my food choices is easier when I know I will get a sparkpoint?

I had a good weigh in today at weigh watchers. This is my 2nd week each week I have lost. I hope that this continues! Walking the dogs definitely helps!

    Accountability comes to mind for me. You also don't want to be embarrassed when you weigh in at wws. I know I sure don't! BLC rocks too!

    I guess we always need some kind of encouragement. Glad that you are having success!

Beach time and husband health scare

Friday, August 05, 2011

I was able to spend some time at the beach today. It truly calms me.

When I got back my husband tells me he was at the doctor's because he found a lump in his breast. He goes next week to have it removed. We are hoping it is nothing.

Getting in a great deal of walking with 2 dogs!

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

Life is still crazy! The two dogs keep me hoping. I am getting my steps in but I am not getting any work done. I feel like I have a newborn.

    Just enjoy your walks with them and be thankful they can walk! My sweet 11 year old Maggie (golden retriever) is suffering from arthritis and neurological problems and can't walk more than a few steps without falling. I still get in the daily walks with her "brother" but also put in pool time with her. Swimming had even become difficult for her but the vet recommended a life vest and she is loving it! I swear she is smiling as she retrieves her toys in the pool! emoticon

Need to check eating under stress

Monday, August 01, 2011

Well my husband is off to a course for the week. This is the first week I don't have two jobs. The dogs can't be walked together or out together so I am getting stressed trying to make things equal for them.

I ate rice cakes with peanut butter but realize it wasn't because I was hungry but because I was feeling stressed!


Juggling the two dogs and the heat

Sunday, July 31, 2011

We took the two dogs to the dog park at 6 am. The heat of the day is making us drag!

They were fine. I know that it is more difficult to have two different types of dog. Rudy runs after the ball and Gansett herds him.

Chris is missing his dog. We will have Gansett for a month.

    Glad to hear the dogs are getting along, in their own way.
