Doing it 1

Saturday, September 08, 2012

Cannot do pictures until my son comes over and fixes up my picture capacity.

I have been going to the gym now for two weeks. Still walking with Jill and Nettie but adding treadmill and swimming... Did a couple classes but was sick over the Labor Day weekend ( three day flu) Spent as great a time with family with being under the weather. So today I am feeling better and will be walking 10,000 steps in two batches... I have already walked three miles and will walk the same with another friend in a little while. I may use the gym more in the afternoons while it is still hot and as the weather turns cool... I have to ask them why I am having a uncomfortable feeling in my leg.. not painful just uncomfortable....

Chocolate therapy

Friday, August 31, 2012

I chose to go to the chocolate therapist instead of getting on line and talking to my spark friends.
Instead of calling friends who could have talked me down. I wanted so badly to be with my sisters but they have not included me in their plans... I act as if I do not care. But I do..
I am going to call my friend ( sister by choice ) and See if she would mind meeting me today for our weekly walk... We have been walking since 1997. What a blessing in my life.
I am so grateful.

This is the picture of the hundred year old camphor tree that had to be removed because it had a fatal disease. It was on the corner by a business called Java City which had been the meeting place for every one who wanted a safe place to meet. Parts of the wood will be used.
The shade it provided on a hot summer day will be sorely missed and it will be many years before another tree will shade the area so beautifully...

    I am so sorry you feel that way. I have two older sisters and I have felt that way before too.

  I hear your pain, and I wish I could take it all away!! However, what I can do is be here for you today, and assure you that you will never be alone. We will support each other through the good times and the bad times. We will not turn to food for comfort!!!

    I hate that suburbia is where they name streets after trees they have cut down.

    This hit home for me. Years ago I experienced the same sadness over being excluded by my sisters and mom...like you, pretending I didn't care was about all I could do. Mom's gone...my sisters live 400 miles away now, and I do what I've done in the past (which is what you have done) go to those who love us (sisters by choice) for the warmth we need and deserve.

This community also provides the safety we covet when we expose our feelings. Just try us!!

About that chocolate therapist....if you're going to indulge, try Godiva's chocolate pearls. They're a bit pricey, but they're small and a few take care of much.

This fence has an Alice in wonderland theme.

Friday, August 24, 2012



I Just wrote a blog about the little fence with the Alice theme but it disappeared .
It is an original picture and an original concept and I do not understand why my pictures will not post here any more.
But I am walking a short walk in the morning and I did a water aerobics today...
my abs really are sore... I will not give up...
Ok there it is. Wait till you see the side wall to hide the ugly part of the wall on the right of this picture. If you want to go see the repairs go to my older blogs.

    The fence in your picture is delightful! You have a wonderful imagination.

Sounds like you are doing well in the exercise department. Congratulations! emoticon

The next step in the ongoing saga of the house that Mike built.
This is a fence to hide a retaining wall that is on the front of his property.
I have pictures of the entry stair replacement and the little planter boxes.
Their house is so cute... I want to go to San Francisco to visit this weekend but he works on the weekend and has not much time..... but I do enjoy seeing the pictures.

Know what to do but

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Trusting the process is very hard.
I am eating less calories but more than I need to loose.
I have upped the intensity of my walks and I believe we are going to join a gym this week to make more diversified exercising possible.
My mind knows what it wants to do but my body is just not ready for the next step.
I have been floating at my current weight for two years.
Hubby has lost down to a 32 waist and back up to 40 several times since 2007.
He won't listen and brings things into the house I should not have.
I feel like he comes in and says ... let's go out and eat ... I throw out my prepared lunch and we eat way more calories than we should. And i have to walk more to keep my weight stable.

It is the anniversary of my Mother's passing and I feel sad remembering the family drama of last year... But I have to keep believing that the process is in place..I have to just do each day with honesty and predictable behavior. I have pounds to my next goal. I know what to do. It is keeping remembering every moment of every day how much better I feel now.
I need to remember I will feel so much better. And maintenance will be so easy.

    Every time I get together with my family I have the same problem. Food has always been the center of all family gatherings. This does make it hard to eat right and to stop when your mind is telling you to, especially when they keep offering you another serving. LOL I just have to stay firm and say no thank you. It is hard but it is part of the learning process and the realization that you are the one in control and not the food.

    My pilates teacher had the same problem. She told her family if they brought the fattening/trigger food into the house she would toss it out, and she did. They stopped bringing the food home. Good luck!
