Blog prompt: Do you think organic food is healthier? Why or why not?

Wednesday, December 17, 2008

I don't know if it is but it's definitely more expensive! I refuse to pay the extra price because money is tight right now. When I was able to afford the pricey stuff, I couldn't taste the difference.
Ok so flame away.

    I'm not sure that a homemade garden is just as good and you can tell the difference because its not canned or has the salt in it like the others. Organic can be bad for you too. Hope

    Well, it would make sense if there were no pesticides, chemical fertilizers, blah blah blah, that they might be healthier. But I still don't know where those foods are coming from, what ground they're being grown on, what hands have touched it. So I think I'll just save my money.
Now if I ever get around to putting in my own garden...that'll be organic!

Happy Birthday to my Grandson!

Monday, December 15, 2008

Today is my oldest Grandson's 9th birthday. I was there when he was born and have only been with him for 1 birthday and that was a year ago. He is still my sweetheart even though his attitude is growing up too fast.

I haven't posted in awhile, DH was home for the Muslim religous holidays for 2 weeks even though we are NOT muslim and do not celebrate it, the government here shuts down anyway. He was doing a lot of downloading on his computer which caused the household network to slow down so nothing moved very fast. I did get a lot of cross stitching done though.

I also didn't do a lot of exercising and found those 2 lbs that I thought I had lost. Now my goal is to loose those 2 pounds and 4 more to go with it. Gotta make it an even number, LOL. I am back on track this week though.

I haven't decorated anything for the December holiday, I am not at all fond of it, too many painful reminders of things that happened. Plus I am not HOME in the USA with my family to celebrate and it is forbidden, banned & not allowed in this country. But it is good we didn't go home since New Hampshire had an ice storm. I would probably be in the dark or stuck in an airport someplace.

    My grandson was born 7 years ago on the 29th. I was there but not in the delivery room. I luckily have gotten to spend a lot of time with him. Yesterday the temps were 71 and last night they fell to 15. We are having a lot of ice and a little snow. I am on my way to the hospital so I will get back with you. How long do you have to stay in that country? That seems a shame you can't celebrate Christmas. Hope

It's also the 24th anniversary of the day I landed with my 2 young children in Saudi Arabia, December 7th 1984 at 4:20PM. The kids are grown and gone but I'm still here. It's not much fun, I hate it but as long as my husband has a job here, I will be here by his side.

According to the scale this morning, I have lost another pound, so I am at 140! WOO HOO! That was my original goal that was supposed to be met by November 1. Let;s see how long I can keep this one.
I had a GREAT walk this morning, my mile is down to 19:13 YEEEE HAWWW! I also did 20 minutes worth of strength training and feel GREAT!

Well gotta go, time to clean the house (YAY, MORE exercise today! ) emoticon

A great walk today

Sunday, November 30, 2008

Wow! I did my mile in 20:13! A new record! I need to re arrange some songs on my iPod so I can keep up this pace now. I start with Runaway Train by Soul Asylumn, It's My Life by Bon Jovi, Rock You Like a Hurricane, Livin' On A Prayer and a couple others that help me keep up the pace.
That great walk even happened after I didn't want to go today. Today must have been my day to catch up on sleep. I got up at 7AM, shuffled to the bathroom, then the kitchen to take my pill, then to the living room, let the cat in, laid down on the couch & me & Spot slept until 9:30!

Blog Prompt: How do your friends and/or family members help motivate you to lose weight?

Saturday, November 29, 2008

My husband is my biggest motivator, he is pleased with every inch/pound I loose, he is interested in every step I make & every exercise I do. He is pleased with my progress and he listens to me when I'm upset about not losing and he is excited when I loose. He supports me, he buys me the exercise gear & clothes I need.
The rest of my family is very proud of me too.

    Do you keep track of your measurements in case you arn't losing but maybe gaining muscle? One month I gained 1 or 2 lbs. but I lost 3 inches in my hips and 1/2 inch in my waist. Don't forget that counts too. It helps booster you up. Hope
My friends and family tell me they can tell that I've lost weight and I've had to give away a bunch of clothes. Some people can't tell but they're around me all the time and can't notice the subtle changes.
