Rough week

Saturday, April 20, 2013

You know it's a rough week when:

You think losing a half a pound is great.

You spill acid on a brand new (smaller) pair of work pants. Fortunately, they are still wearable for a while.

Your baby sister (yeah, she's 52 but she's still my baby sister) has a 3+ hour surgery for pancreatic surgery.

And next week our baby brother has surgery to repair an umbilical hernia.

Will April ever end...

Working on an idea

Monday, February 25, 2013

I hate my dining room. I live alone (well, with a cat) and never use it. So I'm thinking about turning it in to a workout room. I had wood-like flooring installed today. He's coming back tomorrow to finish because of a sick child last night. I have a TV that plays DVDs, some small hand weights and a yoga/pilates mat. Workout room!

All I have to do is get rid of the table and chairs...

    Excellent idea. I did something similar recently, it worked out nicely. I watch tv or listen to music when I workout. Or I work out to a video there. It makes sense!

    I love this idea....wish I could get my treadmill, recumbent bike etc. out of the basement. I do use the equipment. Maybe I should think about sprucing up the area to make it more desirable. Hope you can get rid of the table and chairs. Have a happy, healthy week. emoticon

    That sounds like a great idea!
My daughter got a Total Gym which has a place in our living room. The stationary bike is up in my room. Both get plenty of use! But I'll bet you could make a really nice workout room. Maybe you can start your own little "home gym" club for a few friends.
Blessings on your journey to a healthy lifestyle!

Non-scale Victory?

Thursday, February 14, 2013

I know this is a weird first blog, but I just noticed the strangest thing... One of the doctors I work with (he's a pathologist and I work in a hospital lab) has started talking to me!

OK, a little history. I started working on losing weight and getting healthy in 2005. He was at the hospital then. We all called him 'Dr GQ' behind his back because he's one of those drop-dead gorgeous types. I've worked with a trainer, been on Weight Watchers, gotten the lap band and worked my behind off (or at least made it a LOT smaller!) and lost over 130 pounds. And I'm not done yet.

Anyway, I realized yesterday 'Dr GQ' said hi to me and actually tried to start a conversation.

So, is that a non-scale victory or not?

    It's not such a weird thing. I told She(WMBO) about how odd it was that women were engaging me in conversation more than usual lately.

"Are you wearing your wedding ring?"

Huh? "Not always. Sometimes I am working." I don't wear jewelry of any kind when I work with my hands. It's a safety thing. Habit. Not disrespect or trolling.

"They're hitting on you."

Me? "Who? Me? I'm a grey haired former Santa. No one is hitting on me."

"Trust me. I've heard the girls at work when they don't think I can hear," She(WMBO) is the boss, "women are hitting on you."

Holy crap!
