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 :(

    Thinking of you...

    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.

Full moon

Sunday, August 10, 2014

Last blog I wrote was last months super moon and here it is again.
We are packing up some dinner and a bottle of wine and finding a private spot on the beach to watch it come up.....I can't wait.

My husband is on vacation this week so we are leaving tomorrow afternoon to stay at a hotel for a few days just to be somewhere with a pool and hot tub. It feels good to get away, we both have good books to bring and I am looking forward to doing nothing.
It gives my daughter some time for her and her friends to have the house to themselves.

I am actually back in the one sixty's again weight wise so I have motivation not to snack while I am away .

Happy full moon !

Your get away plans sound great too. I would also want the pool and hot tub.

Congratulations on being in the 160s!!

Super Moon

Sunday, July 13, 2014

Did everyone see that moon last night >

It was hot pink and huge and from where we were watching on the beach it was reflecting a beautiful pink glow on the water.

Defiantly one of the best moons rises I have ever seen and I have seen a lot...I love them.

If you read this blog before dark tonight do yourself a favor and be outside somewhere you will be able to see it rise tonight...... it probably will be just as glorious as last night.

I tried to put pictures from last night on but it says file too big :((

    We sit outside with or coffee every morning around 3 a.m. It was indeed a beaut. The weather has been very unsettled here the last few days, lots of clouds, but windy. The moon light has been calling me out to the lawn for a dance.
