    This is day 8 for me. Already I have lost my spare tire, a half inch around and am down to 141.5, lost three pounds last week .

I bought the book, pre-ordered it because I felt I had nothing to lose because what I was doing wasn't working. I follow the menu plans pretty close and it is working. My jeans are getting longer and I have more energy, am never hungry because I am eating a lot of protein, have no cravings for sweets for the most part.

I got two free workout DVD's but haven't looked at them yet. I like to walk, never been one for going to a gym or working out. But I might try some of them out that I can do in my tiny apartment.

    DITTO for me too. I had to fast for the procedure for two days and then I was advised to drink sugary drinks to replenish my blood sugar.
That was not the week to do it. I will be starting after my cataract surgery so I will be a month behind. In the meantime I am enjoying the book. Thanks see you soon Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Another good workout

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

I had another good (to me) workout at the gym today, the recumbent bike, the treadmill, weight machines and free weights. We're back on a cold streak here in New Hampshire so hopefully soon it will warm up and I can go for a walk outside with bug repellant.

Back to the gym today

Monday, May 13, 2013

It felt good to get back to the gym today. Why do I go to the gym? Bugs, flies, mosquitoes, cold basement, wasps, hornets. The "road" I live on is in the woods filled with millions of mosquitoes, flies & ticks but I guess if I keep waving my arms to swat them off I would be getting extra exercise, If I keep swatting at the ticks that crawl on my feet and ankles that would count as bending over a lot. Exercising outside on my huge front deck I would have to duck and dodge the wasps and hornets and of course the mosquitoes and flies. I can't exercise on the floors in the living area because there isn't enough wide space. Downstairs it is cold, we do not keep the heat on down there and being in the basement, it's always cool or cold down there. Yeah, I know excuses, excuses, excuses but belonging to the gym will give me incentive to get up and go there since I spent money on it and I may meet people there.

So that is my day

    Yeah, that's the worst part about this time of year. It's finally warm enough to get out and then you spend all your time trying to fend off the beasties. Though waving those arms around as you walk is a great cardio boost, ha ha!
My problem is the bear that likes to stroll through the neighborhood about the time I'm needing to take the dog out for his walk. Jude doesn't want to have anything to do with outside once he gets a whiff of him. And by the time I can get a whiff of him, I'm agreeing with him, ha ha. Makes for some extremely short morning outings.

    Some of us observe it daily. Our kids never send card. The eldest said one day why do I have to buy a card to prove I love you. That means maybe I only love you once a year or once on Sunday.

NUFF said but they do usually call on THE US Mothers DAY it is different day in England. emoticon emoticon emoticon
