One happy mama

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

My daughter got engaged just before halloween and i have been patiently anxiously awaiting for them to set a date for the wedding. depending on that date i want to hit my target weight and hopefully push a little lower than that, honestly would just be happy with my target weight. it will be the lowest i have been since i was 25 and that would be fine with me.

    That is wonderful news and you can do it. Maybe they will take their time and plan it slowly that way they will not be stressed and not stress you too. emoticon emoticon

feeling awesome

down 5 more pounds putting me at 170! clothes are falling off my butt and i'm loving it, except they are falling off my butt. hubby had a dr. appt. today and you know it's a good thing when she notices we both have lost weight, but most of all me!! made me feel good.

bones aren't especially liking the whole readjusting period. sometimes the pain is unbearable, but i deal with it. silently knowing it is all for the better. i feel like a bowl of rice crispies with all the snap crackle pop going on... and i do it with a smile.

i feel good

Slightly miserable today...

but am making progress. Finally down 3 more pounds, putting me at 175. Haven't been here in almost 10 years. It feels good. I give a lot of credit to the home canned foods versus commercially processed. I don't think I would have been able to do it without putting up my own groceries.

Right now my energy level is soaring through the roof, but I have such a terrible head and chest cold that it is kind of going to waste. Not completely though. I do feel better than I did yesterday. And I did pull a secret weapon out of the freezer. Big ole bowl of chili from this weekend when we went camping. If I have to eat that every day until this cold is gone... I'm gonna do it. (but only so i can go camping again this coming weekend).

So yeah, WOOT!!!!

    What a bummer. Early cold when the weather is so compelling. Glad you had some spicy chili to take the edge off. Sorry I can't send some of hubby's medicinal strength chicken soup.
Just the effort of putting up your own vegetables had to burn off some calories!
Congrats on the new numbers.

    I am glad you feel better. And Chili sounds great! Especially when you have a cold....nothing beats a nice warm lunch.

Feeling pretty good.

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Weighed myself this morning and I am down one more pound. It's kind of cool because now I am starting to see the difference. I feel it more than see it, but hey that works too.

It has been so darn muggy here the last few days that last night at work I finally realized I need new clothes. Now I am not a big fan of shopping for my own personal reasons other than not finding anything I like or the wrong size, but when you are at work, sweating your hiney off, and you suddenly realize that you are wearing granny panties and that you are "hitching your sh*t up" as I like to call it, that yup, it is definately time to go shopping.

So the treasure hunt shall commence. Wonder if I can persuade hubby to go shopping at Wal Mart at 2 in the morning? Probly not. Catch ya later!!

And the next dr. appt. is made

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Blah. I hate doctors. I think I hate pills more than doctors but if it gets me to feeling better I suppose I am all for it.

Has been a busy weekend. Last week I had received a 3/4 bushel box of peaches and put up 8 quarts of plain peaches and 8 pints of amaretto peaches. Almost thought on saturday that was going to come to a crashing end. Hubby was out mowing lawn, blowing the debris away from the house, when he picked up a baseball in the deck and sent it sailing through the kitchen window. Or should I say through the screen, the window, and the blind. Talk about scary. I had glass all over the kitchen floor and half way across the dining room. All I was thinking is I hope I get it all picked up before we go pick up the grandson for the night. Must have done a pretty good job because all I found later was a small shard that somehow got inside my slipper and poked me in the foot a bit.

And then there was Nic. That boy, I don't know. The guys had fish sticks and french fries for supper and I had a salami sandwhich and potato chips... or should I say crumbs. Nic is a very picky eater but as soon as I asked Grandpa if he had tried the new Lays Roasted Garlic and Sea Salt chips yet Nic was like I like these and stole them all. Left me with crumbs. Guess I didn't need them that bad. Then J. and her hubby showed up and we all watched t.v. for a bit, got Nic in his jammies and him and I curled up on the couch and as soon as I covered him up he was gone.

Sunday was well... hot. We went to the fair for the demo derby. I came home quite roasted which I know is a negatory being on blood pressure meds, but I honestly couldn't see myself sittin in the sun in the bleachers for 3 hours without a tank top on. I am paying for it. Ugh. Then enters Nic again. Squirrly little bugger. Lets see, for a 3 year old, he is fearless! The tilt-a-whirl, the carousel, the huge slide that is like 40 feet in the air, and the bumper cars! OMG, my butt is broke. Seriously, it hurts to sit. Then to walk through the barns. I honestly felt sorry for hubby, since he is allergic to sheep and the oils in their wool I had to make sure Nic didn't touch any and gave him a prompt handwashing afterwards just in case.

So it has been an eventful weekend, and I think I am still recovering from it. Can't wait to do it again though.

    Leeword... honestly, I started taking One A Days Womens Pro Edge and it seems like I have endless energy. Even though I still fell tired as all heck my body keeps saying "c'mon, we gotta go!" It's a love/hate relationship at the moment. I love that I finally have some energy, but I hate that I can't use it all up. Good God, work has been beating me up lately and I dropped 1 more pound. Yay me!!!! As for the glass shard, didn't really get me at all. Noticed it before it got me.

Startingover37... Pills suck! emoticon It was busy. We don't get enough of those weekends with the grandkids, but we go all out when we do. I hear next on the grandkid adventures is camping!!! That should be fun. We might kidnap some friends of our and their grandkids too!!!

    The glass shard in the slipper bothered me. I hope you were able to pull back before it drew blood.
But I got tired just listening to your weekend! Where do you get the energy?

    I am with you I hate pills, and I am a horrible pill taker. So I really hope to get my weight under control so that I don't have to be on them. Sounds like you had a busy but fun weekend with your grandson. I do miss my kids being that little, they kept me busy. I didn't have time to sit lol, but yet still managed to gain weight. Funny how that works. Have a great day!
