Was it the beer, the sun or a combination of both?

Saturday, March 16, 2013

I went in the pool today at our hotel and then went in to change clothes before heading down to the beach. My husband went down to the beach before me. I changed into a new bright pink and white tank top and shorts and headed down. I was on the crossover walk when I found my husband and he saw me. He said that when he saw me come over the crosswalk, he though it was a young spring breaker. So I have to ask, do you think it was the beer, the sun or a really great husband?

    While he's probably a great husband, I vote that he thought you were looking hot. emoticon

    Sounds like a man in love with a beautiful, young looking wife. see what hard work and determination can do. I have never met you Pat but just from talking to you on here I can tell you have a heart of gold and it shows from the inside out.
Have a great St. Patricks day and don't forget to wear that green.

    All right Pat...go for it! About the time you come back Florida will be having a heat wave LOL. on't get too sunburned but enjoy the sunshine and the palm trees. I loved the soft breeze. When we we were younger...about 13 I guess, we went every year for awhile. Dad had friends in Georgia. We lived there when I was little ..moved back to Illinois after I graduated kindergarten in caps and gowns. It was in Macon Georgia.
Then when hubby was a truck driver we lived in Ocala for about a year. It was too expensive.

Easy Steps

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

It is so much easier getting in your steps when you are walking on the beach. You don't have the same pressure on your knees when the surface you are walking on gives a little. Walking on pavement always does me in. I got in over 10,000 steps today. emoticon

Buying new jeans.

Friday, March 08, 2013

I'm not a size 4, heck, I'm not even a size 14, but I was a size 24 last year. Today I bought a nice pair of size 18's. For me, that is a success. emoticon

My glass is always half full.

Saturday, March 02, 2013

Some may think that being stuck at the same weight for 5 straight weeks is a reason to get down, but I am not. I am so blessed.
I have a new grandson born on Valentine's day.
I have a six year old grandson that is my little man. He's bright and outgoing and does well in Kindergarten.
My 2 daughters live within 5 miles of me.
My husband loves me very much.
I don't weigh 240 like I did last April.
I am going on a vacation next week.
I got great test results from my last check up. A1c 5.5, cholestrol 160, triglycerides 220.
So even though the scale is stuck at 197, my glass is always half full. Well got to go and fill it up again. LOL
