What to do with an extra hour?

Sunday, November 07, 2010

I got up early since I had an extra hour. I was able to take the dogs for a walk at the park. What a beautiful morning. I came home and went grocery shopping . WOW it is not even 12:00pm yet. I got out my wildflower seeds and worked in the yard for about 1 hour. I am tired but I know in the spring my wildflowers will look great. What are you going to do with an hour?

    Yesterday I slept in! I did not get up until 7:30, just in time to get everyone up and ready for church. It was nice. This morning I woke up at 3 instead of 4:30 but I laid in bed until time to get up an run.

    Hi Becky. I slept the extra hour, then went to church, then out to lunch with some people from my Sunday School class. Now am on Spark.
This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be happy in it.

Sunday the day after.

Sunday, October 24, 2010

Many people tell about the days before the race and how they train.
The day of the race is filled with excitement.
What about the day after.
Yesterday was a full day.
I got up at 4:00am to take my daughter to the band competition.
I went to run in a 5k at 8:00am.
Then I came home to sleep.
Our band made it to the finales so off to McAllen at 7:00pm to see the band at Area. 10 wonderful bands competted for 7 spots to State. These kids are a wonder. Not only have they been marching since July in temps around 100 but they play wonderful music.

5 hours sitting in the satium and home we are going to State in San Antonio.

So today I woke up at 9:00am sore and stiff. But I convinced my husband to go for a walk. We went to the Park. It was a beautiful day. I have not been to this park in Edinburg for quite sometime. The trail in about 1.5 miles around. The World Birding Center has a trail also so were saw some butterflies, duck and birds.

Shopping and veg burger for lunch then a nap. My legs are not so stiff now and I feel great.

Goals for the week. I am not going to waste all that energy walking and running on unhealthy eating. I need to remember on Thurs. when I am tired not to eat chocolate and sweets it will not make me feel better. This week on Thurs. I will not sleep in but get up and walk to keep on track.

    You know that dark chocolate is the best if you have to eat chocolate.

Yes, keeping is moving is important too.

Keep up the good work.

2nd Place 5K

Saturday, October 23, 2010

Today I will run in a 5K.
I decided about 2 weeks ago when a fellow Sparker invited me.
So I am going to do it. I just hope I do not fall or do something stupid.
I am going to try to come in under 1hr. I am ready.
Getting ready for the race has really motivated me to keep going and to do my best.
I was in a slump and this has gotten me to move it.

Well I lived to blog again after the race. I came in 2nd place for my age group. I could not believe it. Thanks so much to my Spark Friend for getting me started running. My time was under 40 mins. I am hooked. I want to run another 5k. Next time I will come in 1st place for my age.

Who am I losing the weight for?

Monday, October 18, 2010

I listen to many people say they are losing weight for the wedding, class reuion, for a party.
I had the drean that when I become thin everything will be happy and I will be happy.
My marriage will be wonderful, my kids will behave, I will love my work and I will fit in.
That is my biggest wish that I could fit in, that I would be accepted. I do not want to be talked about anymore.
But that is a dream and I now see that being thin will not make me accepted. Being thin will not make me happy. If I am not happy with myself no matter how much I lose I find something to hate myself about. If people do not accept me fat they will not accept me thin. I need to enjoy and live my life for myself and not for others. This time I am losing weight for me.

    You certainly have the right idea while losing weight and expecting all the happiness will not happen if you do not accept yourself as you are now know that what others think we think is importanthowever what we think is more important and living one day at a time and being happy and content in that day is really what is important God Bless

    While I will set myself short term goals

husbands Christmas party is in a month
mine 2 weeks later
Christmas 3 weeks after that

So I am using each event to keep me going to the next one

But they are not the reason why I am losing weight. I am losing it for me - for long term health

    I love this! That is the motivation I used when I went from a size 28W to a 20W! Thanks for reminding me that this time it is okay to do this JUST FOR ME! I wish you the best... emoticon
