Got my lunch (smoked turkey and sweet potato and salad)Snack fiber bar and almonds
Got to work no internet, no phone.
That's OK I have lots of cleaning to do. Cleaning and rearranging.
I kept looking at my Fitbit to see if I had enough steps. Yes (15000+)
Quick trip to the dentist to get a crown .
Back to work
Finally home at 6:30p.
I am not going to take a nap.
My daughter is already telling me we are going swimming at 9pm.
I will not take a nap.
Overall I can do this if I plan and am orgainzed.
I know Jillian says if you fail to plan you plan to fail.
Students look forward to summer vacation so do School Staff teachers, librarians and principals.
It gives us times to get our minds back.
For me this is my last day of freedom. I start working on Thurs.
My summer freedom is over.
My walking 7 miles a day over
Swimming in the evenings over
Taking over. I think this is the hardest thing taking naps.
But my TOPS leader told me not to psych myself out. I can stay on track even when I am working.
I got my lunch ready.
My clothes are ready
I am going to get up early and
I just got back from the annual conference for TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly). There were many people that have lost great amounts of weight. Many times I watch The Biggest Loser or other weight loss shows and I think these people are not real. They are just actors not living a normal life. Well at the TOPS conference I saw real wonderful people that have lost weight are are Keeping it off.
One speaker I listened to shared his story. Wayne Vandenlangerburg. He had been over 600lbs. He had tried different weight loss groups and had success but finally he joined TOPS and found his home. He lost over 400lbs without surgery. What an inspiration.
The thing he said that impressed me the most was his journey was his. I should not compare myself to him or to other people. He said focus on your journey and do the best you can for you. Mine weight loss journey is mine.
I think how many times I have thought way can I not lose weight like this person or that person. I should not judge myself but just work harder. I can lose the weight. Thanks Wayne for your wonderful story. You and your wife are amazing real people.
Recently my daughter had her tonsils out. She has been resting, resting resting but she does need therapy.
She has time therapy animals visit her.
These help keep her clean. They lick her face so she does not need to wash.
If your bed is tooo cold they will be happy to warm it for you.
This is Pepper the therapy cat in training. He is learning how to give cat scans. Soon he will walk over the patient and find the problem.
He is a wonderful sleeper. He will watch you sleep for hours. If you need someone to sleep with you he is excellent at this.
Next we have the therapy ferrets. First we have Girlie anything you drop on the floor she will pick up and hide.
They will jump on you at all hours of the day or night just to make sure you are breathing.
They are great at making you get up and get moving. They love going to the shower with you just to make sure you do not fall.
Sometimes there is problems with the therapy procedures.
So if anyone needs therapy I would be happy to send these trained professionals to your home to get you on your feet again,
Friday was the first day of summer. Wow here in South Texas the Temp is always hot. Ok in the winter it is cool. So summer means 100+.
I love walking. I wanted on Friday to walk 10 miles. I woke up and my foot was hurting. I think I pulled something swimming. So Saturday I walked only 8 miles. Still I am proud 8 miles is great. And I can still walk around the house. My foot still hurts but only when I stretch it like a ballerina.
On Friday I went to the health food store and was looking at the Vegetable Protein. I had read an article about the Amazing Grass Shakes. I love trying new things in the summer. I thought maybe protein shakes would be a good fast breakfast when school starts again.
So I looked for the Amazing Grass Protein. I got a sample of some veg. protein. I mixed it with almond milk and a few fresh strawberries. It tastes OK. It reminded me of the days when my mom got me the Shaklee protein drinks. Later in the day I started sneezing. My eyes started to water and I was just sneezing. Oh yea!!! I am allergic to most common grasses. Got some decongestion the sneezing stopped.
Well I guess veg. protein will not work for me.
My friends were right eating grass is not for me.
