Progress

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

Today is last day of my Christmas vacation. I go back to work tomorrow. I am blessed because I survived the cakes, cookies, pies, candy, cornbread dressing and didn't gain any weight during my vacation. Not only did I survived but I made progress because I ate those foods but I didn't go overboard. And I didn't throw my quest for lifestyle change to the wind. Now that's progress for me. I am looking forward to more changes! I looking forward to day that my pants will fit me like Emoticon below. Look out 2011 here comes the brand new me!Hallejah, Praise the Lord!

Yikes, am I ready? Today my granddaughter, Chelsea is having a baby! When my first grandchild was born born 25 years ago this December, (Chelsea's older brother, Kristofer) my cousin, Diane asked me "Does it make you feel old now that you are a grandmother" I told her, " No, I feel wonderful!" I love being a grandmother. I doted on all three of my grandchildren.

But now I feel old to think I will be a "GREAT" grandmother! Yikes! But I am very excited. Also, I feel blessed to have live long enough to see my great-granddaughter, Miyah.

Well, I officially am a old women. I forgot my oven potato fries (that I cut so very thin) and they are burned to a crisp!

Get on track

Sunday, December 19, 2010

I need to get back on track. I started out good today, but I got off track for dinner. I knew my schedule. So I should have plan for the events of day. It's making me feel sad. emoticon

    "Shoulds" are in the vocabulary of a perfectionist. "Next time" is vocabulary of a healthy, balanced person. Just learn from your schedule and forgive yourself. You can do it!

    It's OK - tomorrow is another day. I had a day of festive eating and splurged on movie theater popcorn this evening, but I know that I can start fresh again tomorrow.

Goal Achieved Accidentally

Friday, December 17, 2010

I walked more than 11,066 steps today. I had not plan it. My husband had the car & was supposed to come pick me up from work. I called him repeatedly but could not get an answer. He works nights and I figured he had overslept. So, I thought I will walk as far as I can and then I will call him again. ( I live about a mile and half from my job)

However, everytime I called the phone would go to voice mail. Suddenly, I became concerned---suppose he was ill. So, I decided to walk all the way home. However, within about 1/2 mile from the house, I realized that I would not be able to go the last portion of the walk. I was going to have to almost run to get across a busy street and the last leg of the journey was up a hill for about a 1/4 of mile. My legs were too stiff to accomplish that. So, finally, I called my daughter to pick me up. As I waited on my daughter, I looked at the pedometer and it registered 10, 869 steps. I had accomplished my goal of 10,000 steps in day. A goal I didn't I would reach this soon. The glow of this goal kept me from annihilating emoticon my sleeping husband when I got home.
