Just a quick entry--I get to sign offical papers for my new job on Monday. It is a relief--as there is a time when you are hanging in between have told one job you are leaving and have not signed the "offical" stuff yet. I was never worried that I did not have the job, just knew for it to be legal documents must be signed.

So, again, relief and peace that I sign on Monday.

My tennis elbow has been acting up, and literally waking me in the night with pain. The Dr put a nice shot in there. OUCH!! Now, I'm on the "baby the elbow" days. Which means, I don't think I can do curves in the morning--we'll see, but if it means I miss a day or two for my elbow to stop hurting I guess I can go twice on Tuesday! Trying to look on the bright side!

new challenges

Saturday, June 28, 2008

This has been a bit overdue--but I am so excited! I have a new job! I'm really excited to be able to work closer to home and to have a new challenge. I can't say everything here yet--but soon I can. Life is good! It is nice to be wanted. They found me, not me finding them--and offered me the job in a much shorter fashion than they had said--which made me feel very glad!!!

I have also joined curves (for a time, and will decide if I continue when the month ends). I have enjoied it so far, but have not really lost anything yet. I'm living in the land that muscle weighs more--but I'm ready to loose!

I do believe some of my slow weigh loss has been my concern over having to return to the old job--and now that is over, so I can loose and be a big looser!!

We leave for a family reunion Sunday afternoon, then I come a little laundry and go to another reunion.....the cooolest thing is that I get to me one of my sparker friends while I'm there. It will be fun to see each other and visit! I'm really looking forward to it.

Guess I better get things packed for the 1st trip.

    woohoo!!! Can't wait to see you!! You should have your curves people measure you half way. I did that and had not lost hardly any weight but had lost at least 1/2 inch every where, so I felt okay about the not so much weight loss. :-) You can do this, keep up the great work and now you don't have the stress of the old job to prevent your body from dropping the weight! HUGS!

Crazy Craving

Monday, June 02, 2008

okay, I think I am seriously loosing it.....I'm wanting spinach. Yes, spinach....and not just spinach, but a wilted spinach salad. Have I ever had this salad before????

NO, but I really want it.

Maybe this is a good thing that my taste buds are changing. I have no idea--or maybe I'm just turning in Popyee? Or maybe I'm just lacking in Iron.

Whatever the case--I am dreaming about this wonderful warm spinach salad, which I think I'll add some chicken to.

So, if any of you have a great recipe, send it my way!

Happy Monday!

A fashion statement

Sunday, April 13, 2008

okay, I know you are all jealous now that you've seen my new "shoe"..........I'll wear it with pride in honor of ya'll!

The really great part about this boot is that it is in 2 double the time to put it on and take it off.

I'm still limping along! Trying not to count--but on Tuesday it will be 2 weeks. I am hoping for the short time for 4 weeks, but will not hold my breath! I am also really hoping for a small loss this month--I need to loose something and soon!!! I'll keep drinking the water! And, doing what I can!

Not April fools

Tuesday, April 01, 2008

Wow, just as I am making further plans about walking and more cardio......

bam, I'm in a "walking boot" one one foot and an ankle brace on the other. I am not even getting my normal walking around doing stuff now--as it was just so diffcult to get around.

I hope as the days go one--(since there will be about 4 weeks of these dasy), it will get easier!! I'm trying to be positive--things could be worse....and it's only temporary!

I just hope I can burn the calories I am eating--eck!!!

I hope this doesn't sound all dooms day--because it's not, I have actually laughed about it.

    YOu can even do abs in a chair, just situp straight and tighted your abs and then bend over, if you have a band then you can add extra resistance. I have been in a walking boot a number of times. PBS used to have a chair excersice program for elderly people maybe the library has a dvd you could check out... do leg lift with that boot on :) little things will surprise you! Dont let this ruine your progress. You are doing great, just now watch y our intake even closer.
You will continue to do great!!!!

    Strength train miss, strength train. (If you do arms one day you can do legs the other.) You even have some added weight to use on your legs!! lol Pretty soon you will figure out the boot and be walking around like it's nothing. I am thinking you could find a DVD, maybe like sweatin to the oldies and just sit, but do all the arm motions (plus maybe a few added ones for times when he isn't using the arms as much)? Or don't you have a stationary bike? You could sit behind it and do your arms on the pedals.
