I'm proud of myself!

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

I had an awesome day yesterday! I went for two walks and really felt good. I've been vacumming today and can feel it in my back again...trying to remember moderation. I've been thinking about what my goals and rewards should be this challenge. I like what I've seen on your spark pages and need to do the same.

I've been exploring the site and trying to get around it. It seems like I spend too much time trying to find things I want to see. I know it will get easier...

I think the first thing I am going to work on is organizing my clothes. I'll sort them by size and then just think how fun it will be to grab a smaller size to wear. It will also be a good indication of weight loss inches. If there's something I really want to wear, then that can be a new goal!

    Good plans all around! I too need to go through my closet! I have a "too big" section now, one that I hope I will never have to pull anything from again...but I am reluctant to rid myself of the clothes because, just my luck, I'll jinx myself and "need" them, in my closet they hang. On the bright side, it reminds me just how far I really have come, especially on those days when I don't see any progress on the scale...I can just look in my "too big" sections and say, wow...I really am shrinking.

Keep getting in those walks...every step counts! Navigating the spark pages will definitely get easier. I get lost every so often still, but if I do take a wrong turn it usually works out for the best because I learn something from the misdirection...or I get to read someone's blog that I wouldn't have otherwise seen. I LOVE the Spark site!! emoticon

Still on an emotional high since yesterday!

Sunday, June 03, 2012

Yesterday I finished my second stained glass transom for our great room. What a great feeling of accomplishment. The first one was 7 feet long and this one was 5 feet long. So many times you wonder what you did all day because we do the same things over and over. To actually see a project finished and to be able to enjoy it is wonderful.

It has given me new energy to tackle our next project. This one my DH and I can do together. We are going to completely redo our pontoon. Get out the screw drivers and here we go.

Everyone have a great day!

    emoticon What a great feeling! I tend to get overwhelmed. That gave me a literal picture in my mind that will help me take things one step at a time!

Starting over Again!

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

I have no idea why I do this to myself over and over again. I need to change my mind set from mindless eating to a healthy lifestyle.

I think I will challenge myself with finding healthy recipes that taste good to me and my husband. I need to plan my weekly meals and go shopping with just that list in mind.

It will get easier when I have a new cookbook to go to. That's my first challenge to myself.

  That's the right attitude and an easy solution to your problem. There are so many good recipes that are healthy and easy (oh and taste great too). I find that the simplest things make me the happiest because it takes so much less effort to cook healthy than I ever thought. emoticon

  Good job on identifying the problem and coming up with a way to deal with it. emoticon

Today's a new day!

Thursday, September 01, 2011

I have done it before and I know I can do it again. Attitude is all it takes combined with a positive outlook and putting me first before the day gets away from me. The part I need to work on the most is the late night eating. My short term goal will be drinking lots of water and herbal tea to fill me up so I am satisfied and don't eat from anxiety or boredom.

I think a nice big reminder on the refrigerator should do it! Hmmm...what shall it be??


Kicking back and relaxing tonight...

Had a wonderful day with the grandkids. We went to Alvin and the Chipmunks and the experienced was enhanced by the expressions on their faces and how they were memorized by the movie. Then we went on to bowling and the Adventure Zone. They were hot, sweaty and exhausted by the time we left. The hugs we got before we left made us ready to do it all over again.

Oh to have their energy....guess I'll have to keep exercising and losing weight so we have many, many more memory makers like today!
