Am I lying to myself or just lying down.

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I just feel like I am lying to myself. I walk but not enough I am feeling like I am trying to vault the Grand Canyon. Eleven miles across. It is just too far. It is just too hard. It takes too long.
I am surely gong to have to stop eating Nutella and ritz and not posting it on the food tracker. Sometimes I just have to get out there and walk more than 1 or two miles.
'Ok I am finished complaining. More vegies for sure. More fruit. And a lot more walking.
But no Yoga... I cannot put so much pressure on my hands. It hurts too much for too long after a class.

    Try doing a little interval training when you walk. I have read that a little high intensity, like jogging, alternating with walking will help the pounds come off:)

    As I remember you live in Roseville. I work out at the city's gym and it is reasonable and you can find cardio exercises that don't involve walking or classes that are easier. Pilates is much more fun than yoga. My teacher tells stories and makes us laugh. I'll spark mail you if you want more information.

  Okay, ditch the Ritz crackers for sure. They have high fructose corn syrup in them! Spread the Nutella a thin layer and put it on something with some nutrients. Then, do your thing, girl friend! :)
I have lots of problems with working out, but we all can do something, right? God bless. Remember those small changes? You can do this!

So it is Monday

Monday, May 09, 2011

So it is Monday and before I shower and get dressed and get too busy I want to let you know my plans. I have been slowly upping my walking. I am a bit sore and have arthritis so I do not want to over do.. I stretch before I get up and after each walk.
I am on plateau since October... I have begged my husband not to eat in the evening after we already have had dinner. I do not know weather it would be better to just save dinner until we are sitting and watching a show called the Closer that we watch every time it is on or other cop show... I may have to give up TV in the evening because it is too easy to mindlessly eat with him... He also needs to take off weight. He is a yo yo dieter. He can fluctuate 25 pounds up and down.
I have been on Spark so I just go up and down maybe five.. But I want to get under my current weight of 175. So Just like the Grand Canyon was etched out of rock one drop at a time. I can change one walk at a time instead of one cracker and cheese....

    I agree about the one step at a time. I find that I have to want it bad to make a difference.

I am not blogging enough

Saturday, May 07, 2011

No pictures. I have a camera phone but have not learned how to put the pictures on my computer. I do not want to pay the 40 dollars to have the computer on my phone.
I had it on in error and am in trauma about paying for something I did not want.
I should have gotten a simpler phone. but ... you know how those sales guys talk you into things. Why me?

    I know! I have yet to figure out how to get the pictures from my phone to the computer too! (I just got a new fancy phone that I don't know how to use)

Last week I forgot

Saturday, April 30, 2011

Last weekend I spent Easter with my sister and son and their families.
It was tons of fun and I cannot wait to do it again.
Hubby is anxious about cataract surgery next month but looking forward to seeing better without the aid of glasses.
I have been suffering from colds and allergies and have not been out and about as much but ... I am resolved to get out this week either at the Mall or Maidu.
It is there for me to enjoy.

Walk at Maidu

Saturday, April 16, 2011

No I did not get a picture but..... Martha, Mary, Vivian, Lynne and I walked together at Maidu. We walked the longer path around the park but Lynn and Vivian had some other business to attend. So the rest of us did the smaller lap inside the park. Come join us Saturday, May 21st at 9:00 to 9:30 Behind the library. We will be separating into faster and slower walkers.
There is another walking group also every day at Maidu at 9:00 am. They meet by the Memorial Rose Garden. So no excuses Roseville Sparkies.
Please join us next time.

The first lap was 2.63 miles in one hour. the next got us to 2.95 in another half hour.
But we are were walking at our own paces.

    It was a good walk (I thought it was only 2 miles) but more is better and I had my camera, I don't know why I didn't take a picture.
I made it to the farmers market to get some fresh produce after the walk and feel the morning was well spent. I hope I didn't hold anybody back. Mary has REALLY long legs.
