"Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift"

Wednesday, December 31, 2008

Today I am grateful for talking to my grandson, using my Wii, drinking water, eating breakfast, walking. emoticon

Today I walked twice around the house. Today I used my Wii. Today I drank water. Today I ate breakfast. emoticonToday I am living my life style.

Not exercise it's activity

Wednesday, November 12, 2008

Two words I dislike are exercise and housework, to me it means work. Both tire me out and I have no fun. They are such a negative words I did as little of both as possible. So I looked around and found a new word. Activity. I like activity and my acitivity level has gone up. Instead of aerobic exercises, and housework, I have planned acitvites with music. I rake leaves, plant flowers, oil walls (my whole house is wood paneled, built in 1950), mop, (I only have area rugs). For warm ups I sweep, dust, vaccum. My house and garden are loving it and things get done.


Still trying

Wednesday, October 01, 2008

As of this morning my weight mattered to me. I am still 179 and holding. Like the fall of the year I have settled down. Movement is harder in the colder days, I tend to sit and game. On the good side I:
Purchased a Wii over the summer only to find most fof the movements hard on my knees.
Did yoga for most of the summer and never stopped walking.
Walk appoximately 1 block each day and sometimes twice a day.(Live on ranch, use drive way to front and back gates as measurement)
Parked away from the handicapped slot and walk to store
Drove to ocean and walked the beach
Walked around garden (1.5 arces) taking picutures 4 to 5 times a week.
Nightly walk after dinner.

    I am surprised the WII does not have a simple walking program.

Anyway, walking is best.

take care,

My, oh my!!

Thursday, July 17, 2008

As of July 16, I have been with Sparkpeople for one year. This morning when I weighted myself I was 181.8, over 17 lbs dissolved. Like the bad witch in the wizard of Oz, "I'm melting, I'm melting!"

In one year I have earned a little over 1500 points, not a lot, I don't log on often. I have trouble with structure, even the structure I devise for myself. Never the less, I keep close to my heart the sparkpeople articles, recipes, and inspiration to help me through my life style changes. NOw, I eat less, exercise more, enjoy more, and am a the happy to be alive. As I gain confidence in my ability to change my life style, I find I am more willing to take risk in other areas of my life.

I don't remember who said it but, "I put one foot in front of the other, and soon you arrive at your destination" Sparkpeople is one of the feet on my way to my sestination.
