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.

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 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.

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!
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.

Haven't been using the scale much. I'd recorded my gain awhile ago & chided myself at how nothing fits. DRs appt arrived (you know how THEIR scales are especially depressing??) The weigh in wasn't great, but I could tell it was still a bit of a loss. Weighed myself a few days later, at home, and the results were even better. No, I don't put too much emphasis on the scale; but, it is still important. Clothes still aren't fitting that great. But, I think I'm going in the right direction.
Having fickle feet that get sore too easily, doesn't help. It has stopped me from the aerobic exercises, for now. But, it hasn't stopped me from walking. I've learned not to take big steps. I'm walking at a slower pace than I did in my younger days, but I'm not young. So, who cares??
