Time to blog

Thursday, February 17, 2011

So I ate way to many calories and have not had a good week.
I cannot make myself wake up early in the morning and get off to the mall and walk.
It is not hard. it just takes persistence.
I have had many beautiful days when I chose to go home and sleep instead of taking that walk that will make me feel better.
I miss my friends that I walk with and I miss the feeling of accomplishment.
So I resolve to walk tomorrow at 8 at the mall.
At 9:30 on Saturday I will walk with any one who shows up at Maidu Library ( Rocky Ridge between Cirby and Douglas.) To meet and greet and walk.

I do not want to go back to the way I used to look.

    I am right there with you. This week has been so tough for me. I just can't seem to get back on this dumb wagon. Doesn't this thing have a seatbelt?

    Add me to that group. I'm getting over being sick and its rainy and cold. I hate to put on workout clothes and face the weather. But I will feel better if I get out.

    I have been feeling pretty LAZY too...although I have been on the treadmill (just not as much as I could or should)... Hopefully spring (or some other MIRACLE) WILL kick me in the but and get me going....

It will get better and I am glad that you have plans to get up to Maidu. I don't know if I can make it or not..(there is that procrastination working).... and it would be great.

I am not blogging enough

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

So I am sitting here listening to Judge Judy. I am going to a girls only book study.
It is so nice to go out and have a nice time with friends.
I did the same thing yesterday with my Sacramento Sparkies team.
It was so nice to see everyone. We shared low cal goodies and got low cal beverages.
Hope you can get a small group of ladies who check up on each other.
Thank you all for showing up. :)LOL

THis picture of me is sitting in front of my son's pass window from his kitchen to his dining room. I was holding up a cat toy on a fishing pole but it was out of the shot.
the white thing in the back ground is his kitchen cabinet... the sun is coming through the window at the right.

Missing Breakfast

Friday, January 21, 2011

Well I am working today and walking before I let myself come home over at the circle by the Library or the park behind Costco. I just do not want to go out once I have gotten home.
Then I am going to go to a pot luck with fellow leaders of a group that feeds homeless people with my church. I feel so good and enjoy doing the volunteer work, I just do it for fun, for free and for love.. IT is effortless to give when your life has enough. I wonder if I could do it so lovingly if it was harder. I hope I never have to find out.

    That's interesting. My church went on the 22nd to Loaves and Fishes. I was helping with a birthday party so I couldn't go.

    You are really blessed to have enough, but it is really wonderful that you acknowledge that and volunteer to others who don't have enough. It is a wonderful thing that you are doing! God bless!

    I hear you about the joy that doing volunteer work brings! Sometimes I feel as though I am the selfish one, because I sure get so much more out of it than I put into it.

My favorite is bringing rosary and communion to nursing home residents. They are so precious and so beautiful! I think much of their beauty comes from their being now so close to God. Have a great weekend!

Today I feel like the fog is lifting. I am able to breathe without dayquil.
I am going to call a friend and see if she wants to walk slowly at the mall.
I will also go to Rusch Park and meet anyone who shows up between two and two fifteen to walk around the park... at least once.
I am having a little problem at work and the walks will put it in perspective.

    Hi, get well soon. Walks do have a way of clearing the mind.

Tired starting over?

Sunday, January 09, 2011

Yes I get tired starting over.
The alternative is to give up .
I absolutely will not do that.
I just bought my hubby a pair of 34 waist levi 505's
He has not been that thin since 1969.
He has been doing it with diet alone but now he is starting to exercise.
I am so grateful he is no longer bringing things into the house I really cannot stop eating if they are here to tempt me.

I do not like the gym he joined and am going shopping for one as soon as I get over this flu that had laid me out since Tuesday. I got to work but did not much of anything else.

I want to continue to walk with other like minded people and I am continuing to alter my food plan to be satisfying but within my Spark food range.
I have to start over every day to have a today that I can be proud of tomorrow.

    It always seems like a good idea to start again. You are lucky your husband has made the decision to stop bringing in the junk. I am hopeful someday my husband will do the same. He tries to workout (15 mins a day), but he has a long way to go. Sure wish we could encourage each other, but sometimes discovering what works best personally is the best way. good luck with your gym hunt.

    Remember, it is a journey we are all on.

It may have ups and downs but the journey is worth it.

There are times we do better than others, and those are the times for which we need to strive.

    Absolutely don't ever give up.
Starting over is a good thing. This time you know where you went wrong the other time/times.

You can do it.
