Hot one day and then cold the next.

Thursday, September 13, 2012

This weather is really strange. Monday in the 90s and really warm then rain came thru and it didn't even get to the 60s. Today they are saying the 70s, that I can handle.
Will head to school soon for my 2 hours of serving the little munchkins in elementary. I love it, so glad that after retiring I have kepted up with a couple of days a week to help out. Bowling tonight and sure hope I do better than last week. We have a football game on Friday night and then not sure what the weekend will bring. I have walked several mornings and got to Zumba last nite. Boy I could tell I had missed some days and not eating the right stuff for I was out of shape. Today I have made a decision that I need to get back on the right road. Even though I haven't gained, I haven't lost either. I need to ignore the eating of the guys and be more constitent eating all day. I never feel like eating in the daytime and then at night want to snack terrible. This has to stop. I have about 2 weeks before my doctors appt. and want to do well. This helps me get control of myself by saying things out on paper and getting my feelings out. If no one reads that is ok for I just need to vent for myself to get my good friend (ME) under control.

    I find blogging is a way for me to straighten out my thoughts and see them in black and white, so I can make decisions. Like you, I am influenced by what people around me are eating. I get envious and want what they eat! Then later I say, "DUH! That won't get me what I really WANT, which is to be and stay slender!" If I want that, I just gotta chose not to eat like that. simple! And not easy. Spark ON!

    That's what I love about blogging, it gives you a place to get it on "paper." You can come and remind yourself of something you've promised yourself, look at something to see how far you've come, etc. Have a great night bowling!
Much love,

September is going way to fast

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Sept. is almost half over. I like the fall weather except for my hayfever. Football is going great for the school and my son(coach). emoticon Hard to get into the mood of bowling and my scores showed it last Thursday. i wanted to get out to
Wisconsin to see my grandson play soccer again but we will not make it this coming weekend. Dh has a golf tournament to go to. We will make it out in November for he is in the fall play which I won't miss. After my walk this morning I started thinking about having to dust off the threadmil for winter. I love my outdoor walks but not a friend of cold weather and snow so will have to resort to indoor walking in a few months.

So far the back is doing well and the eating is good also. Just stuck on the scale but I am happy. October 1st I go see the doctor for physical and see how things are. Can't wait the see blood work results for I think things will be really good. I am off to do my 2 hours at school and have fun with the kids. emoticon

    September is going by quickly! Like you I love my walks outside and not looking forward to the snow putting an end to those for the winter. We are looking at treadmills now so that we can keep up the walking.

Have a great evening and fantastic week!

A great weekend

Saturday, September 08, 2012

The sun is shining and your not overly hot what could be better except maybe no hayfever. Went to the school football game last night and even tho they lost it was a good game. This morning we are getting ready to take a drive to the cities to see a Twins baseball game. Home late tonight. Up in the morning for church and then over to watch the grandson play fall baseball league. We do keep busy. I am hoping that the winter months will also keep us busy. Basketball will be the next sport for the grandson here - so that will be something to look forward to. The other grandson in Wisconsin will be in the fall play so will have to plan to trip out there in November to see it. Since I do all my walking outside, I will have to dust off the threadmil for the winter months. Still not lossing anymore but not stressed about it. Maybe God and my body is saying it is where I am suppose to be for now.

    Busy is good, espcially appreciating your family in the process. Yeah, winter is coming and it won't be long before only the stout-hearted will be outside. Snow-shoeing, skiing, skating, snowperson building, sledding ... not for me! I am a freezie-cat!

    That is great that you are keeping busy! That always helps a person feel better when their mind is busy.
That is awesome that you get to watch your grandchildren in sports too, and they love to see their family come to their games!

Keep up the positive attitude, you are doing great and you are living healthy; that is what counts most.

Trying to get back on track

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Got up this morning and did my walk. 1 mile. Tonight I got to Zumba and had a real good workout. Now to get my eating back on track. Been cheating on little things that i know is bad so just have to slap myself to get back to the right stuff. Tomorrow another walk and then work for 2 hours at school and then bowling tomorrow night. I feel I am active enough now just to tame the eating and snacking. Hayfever has got me down but I can't use that as an excuse . emoticon The devil is fighting me but I will win.

    Hayfever is so aweful and I find that the antihistamines just make me feel crappy. Hopefully the season will pass soon for you. Have fun with bowling tomorrow!

A long weekend

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

It was a long weekend and we finally got some camping in. We went up to Minnesota and camped with DHs 2 sisters. Had a good visit and enjoyed camp fires and home made soup over the fire. I was able to get out and walk every morning for at least a mile. This week will work my 2 days at school and clean house., Caught up with the washing this morning and DH vaccumed the floors. He is going golfing this afternoon and I plan to walk and go watch the girls team play volleyball this evening. My hayfever has really been bothering me so that makes it hard to enjoy the outdoors like I really want to do. I ate things I usually don't eat but kept it at a little amount so feel like I did an ok job. I am learning to enjoy some foods in moderation and not worry about the scale not moving. I haven't stepped on it and keep avoiding it till the 15th of the month. Maybe God thinks the 180s is where I should be, and I am thankful that I feel good and can keep moving like I do. After being with Tom's sister and husband and seeing how he suffers I feel blessed to be healthy at least. He has agent orange from the war, is blind and taking kemo for cancer but staying tough and a good sense of humor. Make you feel like "what am I complaining about".

    Sound like you had a great weekend with a great attitude about food and the scale. My heart goes out to your brother-in-law who is suffering so. When we see somebody faced with such things, it sure does give a new perspective on life and our own obstacles. Keep up the good work, you are doing great!
