Blueberries all over!

Monday, July 13, 2009

Between Sunday & today (Monday) I have picked about 6 cups of fresh, wild blueberries that grow along the side of the road on my walk route and they are SOOOO good & sweet. Now I need to figure out what to do with all these blueberries. I just can't stop picking them. I have already frozen 3-4 cups from last week!

This week is also my SparkPeople anniversary. I joined SparkPeople a year ago on July 15 but didn't really do much for a couple days. emoticon
I do know I need to get busy again, I do NOT at all like these 5 lbs I re-gained!

This week is the Baseball All Star break so no Yankees games. I will go into withdrawl!

    Wow fresh blueberries and you've frozen them so you can have them later. Blueberry pancakes and blueberry muffins and blueberry smoothies. How about blueberry homemade ice cream? Happy Anniversary Hope

    Happy Sparkanniversary!! Love blueberries too - don't have any wild ones around here, though. We have been picking strawberries like crazy - a pick-your-own field is right down the street from our house! Their season has now just about ended...

In withdrawal here as well...will just have to get moving and get ready for our Red Sox Challenge!

It's my fault

Friday, July 10, 2009

I can only blame myself for being lazy. According to the dr. scales today I've gained 5 lbs since I've been home. I'm not happy so now I need to get off my lazy butt and get exercising.

It's been so nice the past couple days but today I left the house at 8:30AM for my fasting blood testhe frame shop wasn't open yet so , drove to Staples to get a printer cartridge, drove to the hospital for my dr. appt, found out she was an hour behind. I had a 10:45 appt, finally saw her at 12:15 but she is a great dr, I've had used her for 8 years now. Went to the grocery store and tried to look for bargains and got home at 3:30. I still didn't get some things done I needed too so another day in the car on Saturday.

    Hang in there Robin! I know it's especially hard when you are around family and visiting and settling into a different kind of routine than what you are used to. Just give yourself some time to redirect your thoughts and break out some of those Walk Away the Pounds DVD's and I'm sure you'll be feeling much better in no time :)

    Just talk to yourself and remind yourself that even on holidays you need to exercise. Maybe you will start back up again and lose those 5 lbs. before you know it. The weather is better here than where you were so maybe you've been taking it easy because you're enjoying it so much. Don't be afraid to sweat and get hot. You can always shower afterwards. Take your shower in the mornings after walking. That way you're feeling good all day.

    When you have had a mini holiday (as I have just done) it is so hard to get back into the swing of things. Sit yourself down and give yourself a good talking to. Be firm and it will happen again for you.
Good luck

    It can be discouraging but don't let the scale get you down. Keep your eyes on the goal and you will be moving in the right direction. A healthy lifestyle is more than losing weight. emoticon

Happy Birthday to my DH

Wednesday, July 08, 2009

Today, July 8 is DH's birthday. He is still in Saudi and won't be home until Aug 27. I did send him a text message about the time he was getting ready for work his time so he called me back. I told him Happy Birthday. I told him I was ready to go back to Saudi because it's been so nasty here.

Of course it's been raining again today so I haven't been able to walk today so I'm trying to work out inside.


More rain

Tuesday, July 07, 2009

Well, those 2 days of summer were nice, too bad they didn't last. I did get in a 50 minute, 2 1/2 mile walk this morning. I did some dumb bell exercises this evening. I need to get back to the boot camp videos too.


Another GREAT walk today!

Monday, July 06, 2009

It is still nice out for a change so I was able to get in another great walk this morning. I walked almost to the dead end part of our road this morning then back up past the house. It's so nice to be able to get out and walk.
I went for a second walk this evening. I took a 35 minute walk up past the boat launch and back, about 3/4 of a mile one way and stopped at the beach for a few minutes. It was so calm and peacful

I sat and ate dinner on the deck in the screen house and it was so nice, peaceful and serene last night. The ice cream man came around for the first time this season too so I got a small plain cone type thing.

I won 50 Spark goodie points on the Spark Wheel today AND 96 extra points for setting SparkPeople search page as one of my home pages. WOO HOO!
