A question to make you think.

Monday, December 15, 2014

"Before I leave this earth I will not be satisfied until I..." Asked by Barbara Walters to Oprah today. Deep question.
Not sure of MY answer yet. Hers was weight acceptance, surprisingly.

What is your answer?

Streaking.. won't say struck.

Friday, November 14, 2014

I am happy the scale dropped again today. I have been in the Fit2Feast challenge since before the beginning. It is to exercise everyday up to and including Thanksgiving for at least 10 minutes.

Maybe I can get like an A minus?

I didn't exercise yesterday after a very active day the day before. Drove for 6 hours to get my friend to the hospital, stayed for her procedure and back and made it back for water aerobics which I run. I ROCK!! WOOHOO! LOL

Anyway, the streak thing can be motivating.. but I am not going to let that one slip up derail me. I don't let a regular bad day send me back to an unhealthy lifestyle.. so this won't either!!

Have a great weekend!

    I'm liking the F2F challenge as well. It gets me doing something or other active on the non-H2O days. emoticon

    I love setting up streaks. One of the things that has keep me going consistently. it really does work!! Good for you!! Keep going...habits can be formed and it will be like second nature to exercise everyday, when you can. 10 min. can be fit in anywhere at anytime. Even while at the hospital take a 10 min. stroll around the hall ways. emoticon emoticon

Chair 1 - Pam 0

Monday, September 29, 2014

Saturday evening.. Son in law sets up a campfire alongside their pond.
I was I guess lost in the conversation when I felt like things were moving. Was I dizzy??.. NOOO.. I was falling in rather slow motion. It took me a second to abandon my cellphone and reach to brace the fall. The chair, you should know, was on a hill. I feel like a klutz!

It IS a bit of a challenge now to do a lot of stuff without using my right hand. They do say, though, it's great as a mental exercise. That's my silver lining.. that and the fact that it seems to be improving quickly.
YEAH!

    Oh, no! Hope it gets better soon! Isn't it weird how at times like that, time seems to stand still? Yet it never seems to happen at the good moments... :-(

    No.. I didn't end up in the pond. I was probably 40 ft from it. See.. at least THAT didn't happen.

A Sweet moment - maybe it will help you too.

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

SWEETS..

For me it's dark chocolate and ice creams.

I would eat everything sweet very very slowly when I was a child. I would still have Halloween candy left at Easter. Maybe we can all do that? I surely did enjoy those treats back then. I was always underweight growing up but college happened and unlimited food in the cafeteria.. WHAT? It's been decades. Now it's more sweets but less enjoyment.

As we approach the season(s) of these goodies I will try this. I started eating faster for others but no more!! LOL

    Yes, good thought on that. I don't think anything I bring into the house in October would be left over by spring...LOL. That's my problem letting it in my house to begin with! Dark chocolate I am fine with...ice cream...ugh..my weakness! Especially breyers mint chocolate chip. I will try my best, thank you!

    I can't do the ice cream thing - hurts my teeth!!

I love red wine with dinner - moderation is definitely key!!

    My "dessert" every day is a cup of almond coconut milk with 1 tablespoon of chocolate syrup. I plan for it, I look forward to it, and it keeps me on track. I say go for it with this slow eating idea! Those Dove dark chocolates in the wrapper with the little quote are such a yummy treat, definitely!

  Dove's Unconditional Chocolate ice cream - the entire pint. Sigh. I feel your obsession.
