ears pierced.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

On my walk to the bank I saw that the hairdresser was open. On the way back I stopped to see if she pierced ears since my old piercings had closed over. She said yes, when would I like them done. Since no one else was in the shop I said is now OK. So I got them done. Woo Hoo. Now I can wear all my earrings that have been just sitting and some getting lost. I won't go so long without wearing them again.
Working at doing 10,000 steps a day. 8,000 so far for today. Even though the bank is only 3.5 blocks from the house It really made me perspire. So I will wait until later today when it cools down for a long walk. This steps program was a challenge at TOPS this week. A good challenge to get us moving as most of us have been gaining.
It is going to be a good week. I stopped on the way home at the grocery store and got fruit and locally grown tomatoes and cucumbers. I try to spend locally to keep our shops open. I might pay more but don't have to drive and the price of gas makes a saving there.
KEEP SMILING, It looks good on you.

Finally have everything washed. and the last of it is out on the line. It is a long time since I last used a clothesline. I usually use a dryer because of allergies. But I have been outside a lot and everything is OK, so I am saving hydro by putting it out on the line. They always smell so nice too.
I have ironing board and sewing supplies set up so I can watch television while I do that too. I don't usually iron either, but like slacks creased and cotton blend shirts spray starched nice and crisp. I just don't do it often. I have a long list of other things I want to get done too.
I guess I am taking a page from THINFITKINDVGAN and decided to get the house in order, starting with our clothes. Next is cleaning and throw out things that are broken or no longer of use. I am hoping that keeping busy like this will help me with my weight loss. It sure can't hurt anyway.
I always feel better about myself when I have done a good days work.. Don't we all.

bad bad June.

Friday, July 04, 2014

Too many food events in June and my weight is up. Starting today I am back on track. It has been too hot to exercise, but is cooler today so I will get it done.
I had forgotten that gluten makes me over eat. So bread, pasta, tostitoes and anything else made with wheat flour is out of my diet. How many times do I have to learn this lesson.
My son has gone back to Edmonton, Alberta with his wife and son. We had such a great visit. I hope we are up to going there next summer. Bob left me some bottles of home made wine, so maybe one glass for a bed time treat occasionally will be great and in line with calories if I am good and count them.
I will get these pounds off again. Smile.

    Only you can stop the repeat behavior that keeps you gaining weight. I know it is tough to be on program on social engagements, etc. However others need to know that you put yourself first and foremost. I at least hope you feel this way.

Please take no for an answer.

Monday, June 09, 2014

While on my walk yesterday I sat for a few minutes on a bench by the park where a farmers market was in progress. The bench was by a hotdog vender. A couple came by and the man wanted a hotdog and asked his wife if she wanted one. She was a medium heavy woman and obviously trying to be sensible about her eating so she said no she did not want one. She started to walk away then turned back. He asked again and again the answer was no. A few minutes later another woman about the same size came by with her husband. He asked if she wanted a hotdog and she said no then came and sat beside me. I looked up and the first lady had a hotdog she was eating. I commented that her husband didn't understand the word no and that the woman beside me had a husband who could accept no as an answer. She said, well it took some training. LOL. Maybe the first ladies husband felt threatened if his wife got slimmer and more lovely. Our size does not say who we are nor does it make our feelings toward our loves change. If they don't deserve our love when we are heavy, the don't deserve it when we slim down. So treat us well always and never need to feel threatened.

    I agree; sometimes our loved ones are the ones who sabotage our efforts more than anyone else. I am not sure of the reason why, but I have experienced it in the past.

No more bread for awhile.

Monday, June 02, 2014

Yesterday I binged. I ate white bread and after that I seemed to be in a mental and physical fog. All I could see through the fog was food and nothing satisfied me. I am going to try to not have bread for a few days and see how that works. This morning my hubby made bacon and tomato sandwiches. I had the bacon, tomato and lettuce, but no bread.
Today was the final day of our step program. A celebration with cake. I had a piece, but will not let it fog my brain.
Besides the brain fog I also find it makes me constipated, so nothing is working right. Weigh in tonight at TOPS will not be good because of the binge and the constipation. Double whammy. Losing weight is such a learning curve. Listening to what our bodies are telling us. I had noticed this before but ignored it, not this time. I have learned my lesson.

    Well I could say a whole lot of stuff here and I'll hold my tongue and see what happens.

I will say that you do know better. I also know that we are so adept at avoiding a problem surfacing that we don't think we can handle with another that we can do something about. Ok, I didn't hold my tongue....sue me! LOL

    I know what you mean about the white bread brain fog. I must have been in a coma most of the time "before".

    I tend to be a grumpy mess by the end of the weekends because I'm off my regular eating schedule. It's amazing how much your mental state is effected by something like food! Hope you're feeling better, and good luck at your weigh in!
