So Merry Christmas Eve. I am planning to go to Mass this evening and have a restful day tomorrow. Will visit our older son and his wife and then spend the evening at home.
Plan to make a turkey and take the meal tomorrow to his house.

Just cannot get enough of him.
So I keep track of everything posted on face book and on email.
I want to head back but just know the little family wants to be alone right now.
I will be able to stay in a week when son is working more.
I need to work also. But I just want to hang with little dude.

Dec. 14,2013 Little Dude is here

Saturday, December 14, 2013

So he was born on Thursday morning, his mom and dad are fine.
Some grandparents and aunties came.We all put the seal of approval on our little 5.58 pound bag of sugar. Now they want a little time to get used to him before we visit again.... This is really hard.

    And you know how necessary the bonding with parent and newborn is. You'll have plenty of time to give him love.

How adorable!

Just go the first frost 12.5.13

Thursday, December 05, 2013

Just got the first frost in Sacramento. So Now I have to decide to go swimming with the air really cold. I need a waterproof swim cap and a hold the warmth in vest but i just hate to spend the money on something I can do without. So I am walking, doing more gardening
( got over a hundred daffodils in the soil and if they are viable.... some were dead,) I waited too long to purchase but I could not resist half off.
I am also walking my neighborhood in the afternoons, walking the treadmill, and Mall walking.
cannot seem to get a picture in here today, oh well.

    The colder weather is hard for me too. I just want to stay home and stay warm. I will have to start playing the "Just Dance" game for my cardio when I get in those moods. Way to stay active even though the weather is cold .... brrrrrr.

    Those daffodils will be a wonderful sight come spring, even if only half come up!

    You certainly have a variety of malls to walk. You'll keep active and warm.

    I remember when we lived in San Diego
I know you're up north
It was amazing weather and we used to drive to the mountains so kids could see snow then drive back and go swimming

Have been having a little trouble with the quality of my food.
I have the salad in the fridg but.... I eat the rye bread and burger instead.
My choices seem to be a little off.. But Iseem to be craving protein.
I am sore so I have cut back my exercise to 8000 steps a day because I would rauther be consistent than go up and down. When I am very sore I would rauther take a day to heal And have a lower base below which I do not allow myself to forgo.
My water aerobics is more of a challenge now that it is winter and my gym has an outside pool. But I am resolved to let myself keep going and judge stopping on if it feels " right " rauther than on the number of steps/. This was thanks giving 5 years ago.
The dress was a size 20 I weighed 218. I am only five feet tall! The cat still thinks I am his mother.

    I agree with THINFITRAWKIND. This is a life long journey, a new lifestyle. Sometimes we will do things we are not proud of or something that is different from the lifestyle we want for ourselves. But we don't give up. You see the bump for what it is .... just a bump. You have made so much progress to a healthier you. Great job and keep it up.

    You've come a LONG ways, congratulations,be proud of yourself, I sure am.

I love Kab7801's idea, individual salads are great, maybe try drinking your 8 glasses of water to quench that "need to feed", but most of all..stop before you grab something, and think about what you're doing.

Many times I have just grabbed and ate before thinking what I'm doing, and now that I stop and think about the consequences..I have set it back, more times than I've taken it.

Have a wonderful day! emoticon

    You have made tremendous progress. I am not concerned with you falling off the wagon and going to "the dark side" back to the way (weigh) you were.

This is a life time journey. You will have highs and lows as you know.

No matter what we support your journey to continuation of being healthy.

    I keep individual salads in fridge and make myself eat everyday
But that doesn't mean I don't grab something else too!
It's tough!
