Black Friday

Friday, November 28, 2014

My backyard with beautiful snow gently falling this morning while I pull out my Christmas decorations and start wrapping the gifts I have been picking up over the last few weeks.
This is my tradition on Black Friday and you could not pay me to leave the house today...I am so happy.
Now as soon as I find my Wynonna Judd Christmas CD and throw another log on the fire let the Christmas spirit begin :)

November 2014

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Hard to believe it is the end of November...this year flew by for me.

I am up about 3 pounds since before we went to London last month so I better start making an effort to pay more attention these next few weeks or I am not going to be too happy by the end of the year.

I am working all day tomorrow then taking the rest of the week off. I need to get ready for Thanksgiving. My daughter is still in London so she will not be here but will be home for Christmas .

I am happy it is the holidays but I am determined not to gain any weight this year.

We had a wonderful time in England...... here are a few photos.

10 days

Sunday, October 12, 2014

So much for blogging more like I talked about in my last post.

We leave for London in 10 days. I have not stepped on the scale for weeks but I keep trying on the jeans I am bringing and I feel good in them. Not great because all 3 pairs I am bringing are size 12s not the size 10s I was wearing last year at this time. SIGH

I am just now at age 55 learning to be accepting of myself no matter what size I am wearing but I can not help feeling a little disappointed in not getting into them for vacation.

The most important thing will be getting to hang out with my daughter and husband in a very exciting city for a week and for that I am very grateful :)

I am going to start a streak of getting all my water in . I am not great at drinking water and I need to change that.
So today is day 1 of my streak I am going to keep until we leave for our vacation to London which is in 28 days !

The scale is not moving and since the food I eat 99% of the time is whole, organic, unprocessed food I just have to work on my portion sizes . Especially the fats like avocado and nuts. Exercise will be kicked up a notch these next few weeks also.

Well that's the plan I will hopefully blog on my progress over the next few weeks .

Things are quiet around here with my daughter back to school and I am starting to get excited about our trip to see her.

Hope everyone is enjoying the fall weather. I tried to upload a new picture of me but got the message file too large so I had to put my last years fall one back up.
I am going to see if my husband can help me do it later.

Off to work now I have been a very busy electrologist which is great because my daughter tells me they have wonderful shopping in London :)

    Good luck with your goals!

It doesn't feel like Fall here right now but hubby is getting a lot done outside. We are remodeling our closed in back porch.

Your trip sounds like it will be wonderful!

September mornings

Tuesday, September 02, 2014

My head is spinning because it is already September and my daughter is leaving in eight days for London where she will do fall semester this year .

While I am very happy and excited for her I am also full of dread because she is my only child and I have never been that far away from her. She will be 21 next month so I realize she is an adult but this is really hard !

I do have the comfort of knowing 44 days after she leaves my husband and I are going to London for a week so we will see her then.

Weight is holding steady but I have a feeling I might lose a few pounds this week because who can eat when their stomach is in knots :(

    We have experienced the empty nest syndrome twice. It is hard to get used to at first but it will be what you make of it. We have done our job and I'm sure you did a job good of raising her. You will find that you will still be needed.

  Your daughter will be fine-so hard to admit they are all grown up and out on their own-try to find something to keep you busy. Volunteering or a hobby might help some. You do have a wonderful trip to keep in mind(in 44 days). So lucky you have that.
