144.....I'll take it!

Saturday, August 24, 2013

Not really working at it as hard as I could, was delighted to see 144 again on the scale this morning. Making some raspberry green iced tea with honey and lemon for this week. Water intake is back up where it should be, energy level is starting to come back, and starting to feel like the cold I've been fighting is losing it's lease on me. All tolled, a good week.

Prayers for Mick's health, Fran's date tonight (that she at least finds a new friend if not a new boyfriend, and thankful prayers for my immediate family who has made this week wonderful, may they be blessed with the grace of God, Amen.

In my case, 401K being funded, 5K in the planning stages. I can do this too!

Sunday 8/4 musings

Sunday, August 04, 2013

Yes, I posted the date as the title, just to prove I knew what day it is. Fact is, I had to look it up for accuracy.

DH starts Chemo and Radiation on the 13th. Until then, we have both committed to eating healthier and are looking into the Alkaline theory suggested to him by my sister (who works in a cancer hospital) and a friend (who is a nephrologist). More on that later.

The magic bullet is humming with new smoothie recipes, this page needs an overhaul, but my last weekend of sitting on my fat butt is almost over and the race begins Monday morning to begin again becoming the woman I wish to be; healthier, thinner, energetic, and glowing again.

I shall prevail!
Many Blessings to all!

    good luck - I, too, am a grandma. That plays a big role in wanting to get more fit and energetic, doesn't it? Best wishes to keeping up the efforts this time. I have just recently gotten back into it a few week ago; it is important to stick with it!

    I think our daughter's comment says it all... fun grandma is back! I'm glad you're at a place where you can start taking better care of yourself. As for the rest, I'll keep praying!

    I clicked on your blog by chance. I wish you and your DH all the best through treatment. It's great that you've gotten suggestions about eating during treatment. I had a dietician at the cancer center who really helped me.

Been away too long.

DH recovered nicely from bilateral knee surgery, only to get a diagnosis of esophageal cancer Friday, which was confirmed today with the outcome of the biopsy. All prayers for him appreciated, as this ride is about to get really bumpy.

    Oh.my.gosh! Praying...

MAY GOD ABUNDANTLY BLESS YOU, and those you love, in every way that you require. May he hold you gently in the palm of his hand in a very personal way, and may you rest in the fullness of his love, his grace, his strength, his wisdom, his rescue, his redemption, his healing, his inspiration, his restoration and his mercy as you require it! May you carry in your heart always an extra special awareness of God's great love for you, may you feel his sweet and gentle touch upon your life, and may you see his miracles all around you. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen!

BAAAAAAAADD Girl!

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Life has taken over, and I have ignored my own plan and undone my prior success. It is time to start over. I have less time than ever, and need to really focus on getting back on tracking and getting back here more. I've been a very baaaaadd girl, and it's time I pay my penance for this sin. All prayers and encouragement appreciated. I've missed you all too....and I want to get back here more often. Things should shake loose for me to get back to posting by mid-week. For now, I'll be happy if I can simply track and keep going.

Cheers! and many Blessings!

    Marilyn,
Glad to see you back. Hope things are going well with you, your family, and your job. I didn't like the line...'I have less time than ever'. You planning on kicking the bucket?

Just do something. 10 minutes. Maybe get hold of the new Sparkbook. Mostmom wrote a blog about test driving it, and she lost 11 pounds. Walk. That worked for you before. Steps. Something.

(I'm talking to myself as well). The nice weather will help me. Hope you have time to get outside, too.
