My husband is cheating on me!

Friday, January 02, 2009

... with me!

I recently colored my hair. Vanity you ask? Nope, Ray. DH.

For a month he kept "telling" me that it was ok if I wanted to color my hair. I would look so much younger. I would feel so much better. After a month I took the hint and bought a box of hair color. I had hoped he would drop the subject but since he didn't....

So DH's son and d-i-l were here for New Year's and I was explaining that coloring my hair was Ray's idea. Well, Katie started laughing and said that Ray was looking for a new woman, another woman.

I looked at her so sweetly and said, "you mean Ray is cheating on me? And he's cheating on me with me?"

Well we all had a great laugh at that one.

    OK, Raylin......we're waiting for you to post that new and improved photo on your sparky page so we can all admire the new 'do'! HAHAHAHAHA! What color did you go with? Do ya like it? I always use the Clairol ashen blonde! HAHAHAHAHA! My actual hair color used to be kind of a mousey brown, but my hair has thinned so badly that if I try to use anything lighter than blonde, my scalp actually shines thru my hair on the crown of my head! LOL! So I'm stuck with either blonde or leaving it the gray that it is naturally! At least when it's lighter, the thinness isn't so obvious and people don't notice it much! I'm either gonna have to turn into the Rogaine queen, or invest in some wigs, before too long, 'cause I have a feeling I'll be bald down the road! HA! But I say YOU GO GIRL! I'll bet you look downright foxy for that hubby of yours! Woo Hoo!

What is your opinion of New Year Resolutions?

Wednesday, December 31, 2008

I actually didn't like making Resolutions because they are always broken?

But here at SP I was given the option of carrying over to next year my lifestyle changes.

So that is what I am going to do. I "resolve" to carry my lifestyle changes over to 2009!

And I am not yet at my goal weight so I guess I "resolve" to stay with my program until I reach my goal and then I am going to learn how to maintain and tone up.

Happy New Year!

    I agree with you, "resolutions" is not a word for me either.

I wish you to carry over you lifestyle changes in 2009!

    I just think of resolutions as turning to a clean page in my Book of Llfe. I don't make resolutions because they're usually not very specific (I resolve to lose weight) and they're too confining. So I "resolve" to continue focusing on ME and my journey to health and I "resolve" to do one new thing this year. For me, that would be the half marathon which still scares me to death!

Here's to great 2009, eh girlfriend????

    Great goal to have!

I gave up on resolutions a long time ago.
So I'm just challenging myself in new ways. emoticon

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Ok, so now I have another problem...

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

Good morning!

I don't know that I can or would blog daily, even to get another spark point but here goes - - -

So I have another new problem. It hurts when I sit!! My tailbone is hitting my toilet seat and even my balance ball! And now today, I am sitting on my hip bones!

On the flip side I have to tell you it is hilarious when you hear a hornet bounce off your balance ball!

Y'all have a great day!

**edit: No, I did not hurt myself, I just lost all my padding! emoticon emoticon

141.9 feels so fine!

Monday, December 29, 2008

OMG! Today 141.9 feels so fine!!

I am almost as small as I was when I was 33 at 148 pounds. Now I understand that "Roll Away The Inches" must have been like a physical body-wrap and I must have lost water weight! But I did look fine back then, and I looked toned! But I wasn't toned because I hadn't been exercising. I guess looks really can be deceiving.

I am within inches of my waist and my hips if my memory is any good - so I am guessing that the equivalent weight would have been around 10 pounds or so lower than I was at the time.

The biggest difference is this time I am learning how to decide what to eat and I am doing the calculating of my daily calories. (When I was 33 it was my mother laboriously doing all the calculating for us. It was a family affair with my mom, dad and I all losing 40 lbs in a year with mom doing all the work.)

This means that this time I will be able to maintain with the help of SparkPeople and all you "sparkettes" out there in SparkVille.

I wish to thank each and every one of you for your assistance in 2008! I still need you and I will be available for those needing me in 2009!

Hugs y'all,
Love you guys,
Linda
