No title for today

Sunday, March 15, 2009

I did a 45 minute, 2.4 mile walk this morning, it was 80F at 9:30AM. Getting warmer now.
I also did the 2 mile Leslie Sansone walking video.
Still hovering at 141 which is good! I haven't kept up with the 8 cups of water a day though, I just can't get it down right now.

Not much else happenin' right now to blog about.

Is it June yet?

    Does the water taste bad over there and have you tried lemon juice in it to cut the taste?

Today is my 8 month Spark-Aversary & it's Friday the 13th

Friday, March 13, 2009

YAY! Happy Spark-Aversary to me! Sadly in 8 months I've only lost 20 lbs and not the 25 I should have lost, but I did it with the help of my Spark Family so that is important! I learned to like exercise and eat better, I've read very interesting and informative artices and made some great friends here. I hope to be here for awhile.

It's Friday the 13th too. Friday the 13th is my lucky day, I gave birth to my son on a Friday the 13th at 2:55AM way back in November of 1981.

So it's our "Sunday" here, laundry day, clean up day. I didn't get in any exercise yesterday unless you count the 1/2 belly dance/1/2 hopping dance I did last night to music I just can't sit still to. Today is up and down, in and out day with laundry and clean up day. I put my worthless pedometer on to see how worthless it really is.
I may even stitch today!

    We all have our ups and downs, just stay focused. Remember 1 pound lost is better than one pound gained. emoticon

$12.80 for a package of Oreo cookies!

Thursday, March 12, 2009

Would you pay that price? US$ 9.00 for a box of Saltines, $8.00 for a container of cottage cheese? New arrived items at our grocery store today. Haven't seen Keebler saltine crackers in a couple years or vanilla wafers, Keebler cookies. No thanks, I can do without $13.00 Oreos, they stayed at the store. Then there is the $10.00 a pound imported fresh peaches or the $12 a pound sweet potatoes.

EDITED TO ADD THESE THINGS ARE ALL IMPORTED FROM THE USA TO SAUDI ARABIA WHERE I AM AT RIGHT NOW. THIS IS NOT ANYPLACE IN THE USA!

It's our weekend here so I'll probably do a walk video later. It's 99F at 3:45PM and it was grey, overcast and VERY humid again today.

    um...I can't hardly stand paying $3 for a package of oreos, lol, I think I'd pass too. At those prices I think I'd be going native....at least where the food is concerned.

    Oh My Gosh!
Somewhere deep down, I wish that ALL junk food was that expensive because then I couldn't afford to buy it :)

    Those are HIGH prices. Where are you at? They are outrageous. Who can afford prices like that.....OUCHIE!! on the pocket book. I am so thankful prices haven't gone to those extremes yet here in California.

    I've heard in Iraq that it gets to 127 in the summer and the winter isn't that good either. I can imagine the heat over there. I see why you leave in the summer. I wouldn't pay that for those either. You can always make cookies and some you don't have to bake. My mom does a peanut butter one that she mixes. I'll send you the recipe later. I have to go now.

Guess I was wrong again

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

Since seeing the scale at 140 in Saturday, I am now obsessed with weighing in. This morning it was 141!
I didn't walk this morning, woke up too late again after taking regular Tylenol last night but I feel better.
I did an ab Spark video and a core video plus went back to the 2 mike walk video.

It's the start of my weekend here too.

Just in case you saw any news programs or read in the paper about that horrible sandstorm in Saudi Arabia, that wasn't where I live, that was a ways away but we did have "dust storm" (as my DH put it) this week.

I clicked on one of the SparkPeople ads on the pages here, the one for Crestor since I do take it now. It has menu plans and lots of good sounding recipes so I'll give that a go and see what all they have.

    I missed that one about the sandstorm. I'll have to watch the news some more.

They found me again

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Those 2-3 pounds I lost last week found me again, I was so excited to see the scale read 140 but the numbers are back up and I've been looking at the numbers wrong. I don't know why I would think the incriments are 1-3-5 and not 2-4-6, all along I was thinking 141-143 but instead I've been 142-144 which is more depressing. I'll just have to try harder. I'm back up again.

I've been doing the Leslie Sansone walking videos for 3 days now. Today I tried the 3 mile walk that they use some sort of ab belt and a resistance band. I don't have the ab band so I used my resistance band and wound it around my waist. I also did a 54 minute, 3 mile walk this morning and Days 3 & 6 of the boot camp videos. I am beat and I ache. That walking video did me in so if I ache, I must be doing something right.

That thorn is out of my foot too so I feel a lot better now and can walk better.

I think I will take some tylenol before bed so I can get up in the morning.

    Are you checking your measurements? I tried on some capris that I hadn't worn all winter and even though my weight is up my pants were falling down. They fit all right last year but since I started exercising again my inches have come off even though my weight went up. Muscle weights more than fat.
