We had a rain storm yesterday so I turned the computer off and never returned till this morning.
I seem to have so much to do on the week ends that it' hard to get here to post...

Today has been an okay day, I feel a bit more hungry than usual, seem to have these days everyone once in a while, trying hard to tell myself , it's not food you want....not sure what it is but I am sticking to my food's 3.40 pm dinner won't be ready till 5.30 or 6 . Gary is grilling pork chops and pineapple, 2 of my favorites but I'm wanting to snack or so forage threw the cupboards so I decided to blog, hoping that it will get me over the rough spot...
I am also doing laundry , maybe I should go take a short nap, I'm a bit tired, not sure why I slept good last night in fact slept till near 6am which is late for me.. the heat is really getting me down....I'm drinking extra water but we have had near 100 degrees for a month, and we have 1 more to should start to cool down in Sept. at least I hope....

so Off I go to nap for about 15 minutes that might take my mind off food..

have a healthy week end

    I think the heat tires us out. It cooled down here a bit this week (supposed to get hot again, sigh) and I had so much more energy. It's probably our natural metabolic reaction.

I have days when I can't seem to eat enough and others where I barely feel like eating--I've noticed this much more since it got hot. At the moment, I'm also keeping track of my week intake, and I've noticed if I have an 'over' day on my suggested intake, I often have a natural 'under' day in the next day or two. So the caloric intake for the week is still enough to keep me losing about 1.5 pounds on average per week when averaged over the month.

Sorry--I sometimes take comfort in the numbers to stop my brain from getting negative.

Hope you have a great rest of your weekend and enjoy that pineapple and the pork chops.

    I am having the same problem with feeling more hungry some days, Kitt. Sometimes I have a healthy snack and sometimes I just muddle through it and ignore it. Hang in there...keeping busy might help.

I'm with you on the heat. Denver hasn't had it so bad, but I'm ready for having highs in the 70s. That's still warm but not so miserable when trying to do outdoor activities.

Hope the rest of your weekend goes well and that you get caught up on rest and any chores you want to do. You are doing great with your new lifestyle and you inspire me to keep going. Thanks for all the support and for just being you!

    Its hot here too! I bet it is hot all across the country and I don't expect to get any relief until late october or November (maybe) since I live in South Florida.
Whenever I am having a hard time with food, I write something. I have a lot of poetry I've written and letters to myself as well :) Enjoy your Saturday emoticon

    I sure hate when I am hungry all day. That certainly is the time to clean out the veggie compartment and munch away.

I have a sign posted on my refrig door and another on my cupboard...I got it from someone at Sparks

It was a good day, I was out by 4.30 am walking and getting my exercise...
it was cool and quiet, no snakes this morning but the coyotes were there, then they always are lurking..

The new girls at work told me I was so petite, and she feels like an amazon around
I just smiled..she is almost 6 feet tall.
We had a pancake breakfast, they call it the grandslam brunch, I cal it death by carbs.....I brought my own lunch and so did one of the ladies in my ceramic class, I did not even miss any of it, I must admit I'm not much of a breakfast food eater....before Sparkpeople I never ate breakfast....I would stop at McDonalds and get a sausage biscuit and orange juice, but that was a very long time ago.....and I sure don't miss the stomach aches that went with that rubbish.......

Gary and I got our pictures taken , they won't be ready till Aug 14th, then we can go pick out what ones we want...I'm hoping they come out good....
I was a bit dissappointed as the pretty pink sweater I was going to wear was too fact all the nice , dressy clothes I have are too big, now thats a good thing but I can't afford a whole new wardrobe right now....I told Gary about it, and then said I guess I'm going to ahve to eat more , and he laughed really hard and said you already eat 6-7 times a day now, when would you find the time......he is right but it sure sounds funny to hear that......

well you all have a healthy week end
I have CPR class tomorrow and then I need to get some shopping done, maybe oick up a few new sweaters oo blouse.....I have to have something to wear in case we go out to some place never know

    Kitt, That is great that you need new dressy clothes. I agree with the others, try to find stuff on sale. That way you can buy more--LOL. Take care! :) Bren emoticon emoticon

    Hi Kitt,

emoticon on your comment... death by carbs, I really got a kick out of this statement

What fun, to shop because clothes are to big, so much better than the other way around.

Make it a good one

    How nice it is to hear from others that you are small or petite!

good luck with the shopping on a tight budget. My way around that is to take a trip into some good thrift/consignment shops to see if anything catches my eye!

You have a good weekend, too, Kitt.

    Omigosh, Gary is so funny!!! emoticon

Having all the dressy clothes too big is a very nice problem to have, Kitt. It might be time to start watching for the sales and pick up a few things here and there.

I can relate, too -- I've "ungrown" the few dressy things I had, and I have absolutely nothing except jeans at the moment. That's fine for me, however, because I'm not at goal yet.

Hope you have a good rest of the week!

Happy Wednesday

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

I had a rough time getting out of bed this morning, my body wanted to sleep but my brain said it needed to exercise....that darn brain usually wins...So I rolled out of bed, smiled and thanked the lord that I was still here and able to do my best today, oh ya I told myself ...Self get your work out clothes on and just ride the bike for 30 minutes.....okay so I got dressed, but some how instead of walking cross the hall I found myself outside, oh ya I can walk a while to warm up them ride the bike...well 45 minutes later I guess I was walking then I found a snake in the back yard, that was not a happy time, but i kept going..I returned to the house and caught a glimpse of my step, oh ya I use to do that step thing I thought well maybe I'll do a few of those too.. well 15 minutes later and my heart was a pumping very fast , I thought this use to be so much fun wonder why I don't do this more often...

well as I showered I decided that more variety in my exercise routine might be in order maybe I need to shake it all up again, have more fun at 4am......It must be the adrenaline talking. any way a very good work out after all...

have a healthy day

Kitt (who is off to work and to do some line dancing today....and a walk at lunch too...)

    Good for you, always working in exercise in your daily life. When I exercise before going to work, it is 4:30am and hard to think of fun at that time of the morning.

Have a ball at line-dancing!

    Funny--I spent two hours more in bed than I planned on! But I feel really good today.

So your body must have known it needed a bit more sleep time. Maybe in preparation for all the line-dancing tonight?!?

Happy WEdnesday.

    I hear ya about shaking up the exercise routine. Variety definitely helps -- keeps it interesting, and keeps the body wondering just what the heck you're doing! It's cool that your brain wins most of the time, too -- I'm finding the same thing happening to me most days. What we're doing is working, woohoo!!!!!

Hope you have fun line dancing today!
