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

    Congrats! I always thought it was harder walking on the beach...your feet sink in the sand! I guess it depends how "hard" the sand is. Good job on getting your steps in!!!

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

Lucky me!

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

My husband usually gets up around 10:00 am. This morning I got up at 5:30 am because I could not sleep. My daughter is having a C-section tomorrow and I will be a second time grandma. I went to Zumba this morning and class starts at 9:15. While I was gone, my husband got up early and went out and got me roses for Valentines Day. He said it was the only time he could sneak out and get them to suprise me. I am so blessed to have a new baby coming, a great husband and many, many Spark Friends. emoticon
