Well, well, well. The weather forecasters were correct. We have snow. It looks (from the second floor window) like about 3 inches of heavy, wet snow. I will go out and look at it after getting something to eat.

I used to shovel snow on an empty stomach, largely because I could not stand to eat anything b before 7 am. However, since obtaining the advice to EAT within 60 minutes of getting out of bed in the morning, I have tried, mightily, to do so.

Therefore, I must hunt down some grub right away. THEN, I will go out and tackle the snow. It is still falling, anyway!

Thanks. I usually do not care if Curves is open - I only go 3 times a week. I dance every day, and walk continually at work, in and out of the courthouse. I will go upstairs right now and put on some great music and dance!

Of course, I will have some snow to shovel tomorrow morning. I really like doing that, as long as there is not a lot of slush below the snow!

Thanks for your encouragement!

    Actually, you don't need curves to workout. You could throw on some music and dance. That should raise your cardio. If you have steps in your home go up and down a number of times. You can get the same workout. You may not have the social interaction or others cheering you on but you can do the same at home.

I love going to my gym, that was when I was able to. I have Multiple Sclerosis and working out for myself right now isn't possible with some of my health problems so I find little things I still can do whether at home or away. Don't give up because the gym is closed there is always something to do. You could go out and shovel snow it is a work out also. I am not suggesting you do that. But being creative helps.

I am not a fan of the snow, due to the roads and what it sometimes prevents us from getting places, but if you live in areas that has snow you have to be creative and keep it going on.

Lawn maybe it's the excuse your giving yourself for not working out. I think you need to look past that and see why you don't want to work out. You can do that by saying I don't feel like working out.

Snow and the winter months for some cause depression because of the lack of light and some get these lights and give themselves light therapy. Some keep an agenda. There are many things. I know snow can hinder us , but don't let it hinder you from your goals and dreams. emoticon

Best inspiration

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Beautiful clothes! I HATE the way I look in my clothes, even my beautiful suit coat. I have to find my photo from college - when I weighed about 80 pounds less than I weigh now, although I was still overweight then.

I WANT beautiful clothes (suits, skirts, etc) that make me feel tall, strong, and limber. That means that I need to continue to collect pictures of clothes that I want to make or purchase, in the size that I want to be.

I will make a collage of those magazine/internet photos to help me stay on track.

    I hadn't thought of a collage of clothes I want to fit.
I guess when I think of my goal, I think of a flat stomach shown off in a skirt fitted at the top and flared at the bottom. Hmmm. I like that mental "picture." It will be lots more work to get to that place. Thanks for the image emoticon

I can SO relate to this...

and I am SO determined to get back to somewhere near the weight i was then ! I know it will take me at least the whole upcoming year, but somehow that doesn't sound all that bad right now.

Snowy Day

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

I went to work. Worked. Then came home early with work.

We started off with sleet, about 6:00 am. The sleet turned into slush. Then, the snow came. So, the sleet is underneath the snow.

I know what that means! I will need to shovel the heavy snow removal later today. I like shoveling snow, but I do not like it when the slush is below the snow!

However, I expect that activity will do two things for me: burn up a few calories and put a few more step on my Fitbit!

  Haven't experienced snow! Oh well, when you live in Hawaii (except the Big Island has it!), we don't know what it's like to live with snow.

How's the fitbit working out? I'm thinking of getting one but will wait a bit...any comments/reviews would be appreciated!

    Be careful and don't slip on any ice that lurks under the snow.

A very fine day!

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

All three girls are here at the house. Gene is home. I am here. All is well. We had a fine breakfast (steel cut oats), brunch (eggs, bacon, coffee cake), and will have a good ham and roasted vegetables dinner.

All is well. All is well. Joy to all of us!
