Slip sliding away!!

Thursday, February 13, 2014

emoticon The weather man finally got it right. 7" of snow and counting! It is beautiful to look at but not go out in. I did go outside with the kids to build a snowman (wonder have many calories I burned). But I am in for the day and lighting the fireplace.

Hope everyone has a great day!!(snow or not)

    We got 6 inches here. It`s beautiful but it`s causing problems for a lot of people. The South is not equipped for a snowstorm like this. emoticon

Crazy week and half

Thursday, January 16, 2014

I had to stop working on my bedroom because of a dog issue. We haave been caring for a younger dog that is big along with our small dogs. In the last week she has put two of our dogs in the vets. It broke my heart but she had to go. She had attacked our third dog but didn't break the skin. So it has been a very hectic week. The little ones are healing and I know some free time.

I took the time to weight yesterday and what a surprise I have lost 5 lbs. considering what I have been eating or not eating during this I thought I would have gained weight.

So I am starting to count calories again and exercising, I want to keep losing and getting fit.



Bedroom almost done!

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

The bedroom is almost done I have a couple pieces of furniture to paint cream and then I can put the room back together. It will be nice to stop tripping over stuff.

The weather has not been much help as we all know so the furniture painting is going to take awhile. It is hard to get the number of steps in or miles walked this week with the cold being so miserable. I am using my treadmill and doing tai chi but staying inside mostly. Even our dogs are quick backyard artists right now. My littlest dog is the funniest of the three when she goes out in the morning. Can't say I blame them.

It is time to do my treadmill so I can get my steps in today.

New Year New bedroom

Saturday, January 04, 2014

I have been trying to redo my bedroom since last year. I have had the paint and lamps since Feb. 13 the rug since Sept. 13 and two different bedding sets. Every time I started working on it something or someone popped up and that had to be dealt with first.

Well, today my great niece came over to start it, tomorrow we are finally going to paint the room and start redoing the furniture.

Nobody wants me to get on a step stool so she decided to come over and do it for me.

I am excited to start the new year off with this new room especially with it dragging me down.

I will post a picture when it is finished.

Today wore me out but it is a good kind of tired. I am taking small steps forward and not beating myself up when I don't complete the goals I set, I just start over after looking at why I didn't and try to correct the problem.

2013 was a total lose, so 2014 can only be better!!

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

Last year was in many ways life changing and not for the good most of the time. It was a year where I slide back into being the gofer for all and let family convince me that I was to unsteady on my legs to do much exercise and even house work. I finally woke up to what I had allowed to happen and have started making changes to fix the way I live. I am angry with myself because I should have realized earlier that I was sliding back into whatever everyoneelse needs mode..

I am happy to say I have had a talk with my sisters about constantly telling that I really cant do anything because...

I have talked to my nieces and nephews and reminded them that it is their lives and they need to organize it better. Also, I am not here to care for or watch for my two sisters. That's kids are suppose to do.

So I started over today and I am going to be a little over on calories but I am already starting slow and steady wins the race!

    Don't be too angry with yourself. We all have pitfalls in life, sometimes things we cannot control. You are doing the right thing by making changes. Best of luck. emoticon
