New routes & new routines

Monday, July 28, 2014

We had promised ourselves that we'd do more walking, after the house sold. But, you know how easy it is to make promises & not to actually keep them. I wasn't so sure this would be any different.

Happy to say that DH has gone on some walks with me, and some of them being close to 3 miles! This is something that never used to happen. Getting older hasn't helped. Pain hasn't helped. But, we're trying to keep those promises to ourselves.

I don't want to jinx anything. I just want us to keep this up.

    A friend put a pedometer app on my phone and I am definitely walking more.

Good luck with the walking!

How strange to delete all my walking routes, after we've moved. I had the mileages memorized. Now, it's time to make some new routes. emoticon

Not being able to do a task? That's stress

Friday, June 27, 2014

When we need to do something that we can not do, that gives stress.

We needed our windows re-glazed & painted (on the outside of a 2 story house.) Yikes! We stressed much over it. If we had had the means & ambition to be able to do such a task, we would've already done it. House is for sale & it needed to be done (whether we felt like it, or not.)

Oh, gosh! The stress I have been under! I am usually just fine with doing things, myself. But, there are certain things I can not do, and that was one of them.

It is now done. Thank goodness! Someone else did it. Hubby & I had to deal with part of the job, the part with taking out all the storms windows & screens. THAT was difficult enough as it is!!

I am SOOO glad this is done. I do not have to stress about it, anymore. I hope I never have to worry about such a thing, again.

It's an evening of chillin out & feeling the relief of a task accomplished. Appreciating the help of others, even when it has to be paid for.

    I am sure glad you have less stress now. We painted our house a couple yrs. ago and that will be the last time. We will hire it out next time. Same with the windows which we are in need of replacing. We will eventually be selling as well, but too much work to do right now.

What works for me & 4 yrs

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

I spent the 1st yr losing the weight I wanted to lose. I tracked my foods religiously, and that worked.

Somewhere along the line, I quit tracking. I figured that I didn't "have to", anymore.

I've spent the last 3 yrs, slowly gaining weight back. It stands to reason that I still need to track my foods. I just seem to need to.

I like to cook. I like to bake. I'm not into depriving myself of certain food groups. I have a sweet tooth. I have to discipline myself & remind myself to eat veggies. It doesn't come naturally to me. Nope. Btw, I was a young married person when I had to force myself to eat them & like them...in the first place. I did acquire a taste. I learned to like them. But, I still have to remind myself to eat them. Vegetables do not take up the majority of my plate.

I think, I hope, I'm finally on the losing side. The clothes were a better fit, this morning.

My LOL moment

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Have you ever had the SP food tracker ask you if you've entered in all your food for the day (and want your daily feedback report), well BEFORE the end of the day???

I entered in my breakfast & lunch. Then, it asked me if I was ready for my daily feedback!

emoticon Idk whether I should laugh or cry. This is not the first time it's happened. It just struck me funny.....kind of. No, I haven't gone over in my calories, either.

    I've noticed that as well from time to time - right now I'm not using the food tracker, though.........

    Yes, I have that happen all the time. I always wonder why it asks ~ it's always after I have added only a few things. I also have noticed the spelling errors. As a copy-editor myself, I know that there must be someone who is supposed to be doing this.
