Walking with my daughter

Saturday, November 13, 2010

Well, I have had a great day and am doing well! My daughter (16) wanted to go to the sprint store today so I told her we would be walking! It is not that far, she was shocked! She was asking why? We have 4 cars!! LOL! So we walked together and it was a lovely day out....the walk got cut short though as we ended up with 2 small children for the trip back! She was going to babysit later but the Mom needed her to do it earlier than planned so she bought them to the store! Anyhow it was fun and I still walked for 30mins! The other lesson I learned is that Payson does not have very many sidewalks around where I live!

    I love that you got to spend quality time with your Daughter, PLUS you set a good example for the younger ones!! It is something they will~~hopefully~~remember and want to do again.

    We don't have any sidewalks here where we live, either. But, that doesn't stop the kiddos from walking to church sometimes.

I don't walk many places specifically, but we do ride bikes occasionally to the grocery, Hobby Lobby, or Hancock fabrics. My dh would walk to work occasionally, before we bought his truck. Now, there's no way he would be caught walking! But, just maybe, I need to start doing more walking to get from here to there. Thanks for the inspiration.

    When I tell people we walk in and out of town (about a 25 min walk each way including some good hills) they look horrified! LOL Even more so when I tell them we often take the scenic route, that adds a further ten or 15 mins each way. I just ask them whether they would rather sit in traffic or breath fresh air and connect with nature? Being able to walk through the park helps ease the stress a trip to town can sometimes cause. :-)

Thanks for explaining the Lemons and the BLC. :-)
Hugs,
Lex xxx

    We have lots of sidewalks and traffic here. We dont own a car so we have to go transit everywhere, so I end up doing a lot of walking when I go out especially because things are so spread out. My 2 sons now 38 and 36 dont own cars and bus and walk every where too. My grandsons are growing up the same way. Glad you had a good walk with your daughter.

    Hello there. I know the feeling. I love getting in a 30, 60, or 90 minute walk. I live in Miami and there are tons and tons of gated communities ; I love the fact they they build shopping plazas where we live, but the downside is that most gated communities do not have sidewalks.

I am a lemon!

Saturday, November 13, 2010

Happy Saturday! It seems a while since I had a whole weekend off! We are all home and about to start the chores!
I picked up my spark book yesterday as I never really got into it when I got it, due to my vacation and niece being here...but now I am more into it and I see that I have been going around this all the wrong way! So today is a new day right? I have been setting my goals to be big, so today I will be resetting goals and being more realistic in my plans.......I see that I need a back up plan for the days that I can't get to Curves...thanks Mr Spark Guy!
I am also excited for Dec 1st...why??? I have joined the winter BLC and I am so excited! Hence why I am now a lemon LOL!
Last night I had a potluck with friends and am glad to report that I had salad and water :) So proud of myself!! No cake or ice cream for me!

Well, had better get this family moving with their chores, will check back later!

Not motivated!

Monday, November 08, 2010

Was not motivated to go to Curves today :( then I felt lazy and so I pulled out the exercises that I had saved on sparkpeople and I just completed the 20mins dumbell workout video! I am so glad....feel much better now, though I can feel some new muscles! emoticon emoticon
So I may try to get in a walk later too before my nap, I go back to work tonight!
Hope you are all having a great day.....gotta go get some of my water in now!

    Maybe you are just bored with curves but you did great and had a workout anyway so that tells me that you are still motivated? good for you! I am so proud of you! there are many things you can do to change up your workout routine and maybe that is what you should look into. Curves is ok but it does get boring after awhile. Same with your eatingmplan. try shakingmthat up a bitmtoo and you may find you are more bored than unmotivated!

    Good choice ... to do a workout even when you really weren't motivated. Have a great night at work!

    Good job on just doing it! I found out last month that my good cholesterol is too low, and the bad is too high. And I know that diet AND exercise will help this. We'll get there! Best wishes on your journey!

Back to work tonight!

Thursday, November 04, 2010

Well my days off have flown by! I have been catching up on things that needed to be done but could do with another couple of days off, my to do list still has too many things on it!
I am pleased to report that I have been doing better tracking my food, but not so good on getting to Curves, I am thinking all my other activities made up for it this week.....been gardening, cleaning out our storage shed, rearranging cupboards, housecleaning and the list goes on.....
On the up......or is it down??? I have lost 4.6pounds! I had gained some while I was away, so have lost that and then some more, so must be doing something right. My new eating plan must be working :)
So tonight I go back to work, just working tonight and half of tomorrow night cause I need to be awake with my band parent hat on! Saturday is the state competition for my daughter high school band....the video camera is charging!
Talk to ya all later
Christine
