Saturday Stuff

Saturday, September 07, 2013

I went on a dog walk with my 3 little ones. I was hesitant because I had to go alone. Hubby has school on Saturdays for the next 8 weeks. It went great! I think we might make it a thing. I consider this a non-scale victory. I don't think I could have kept up with all 3 by my self. I used to be able to take all 3 with me alone when my hubby was in the military but that was many years and many pounds ago. Feeling great?

Any weekend plans?

(Picture to follow, I'm on my phone)
Update: Follow up pictures

This is from left to right Daphne (age 7), Eddie (age 13) and Niles(age6)

This is Niles after the walk, He's ok just tuckered out in the front seat of the car

This is Eddie, After our walk I dropped off the doggies at home and took just Eddie to have lunch with my brother. Eddie is my oldest at 13 years old. Sometimes I take him out with out the younger two. He likes it when it's just me and him. The cafe we went to is very dog friendly and provided dog bowls, water and doggy treats.‎

This is Daphne with Eddie photobombing her in the back round. Daphne is my baby girl.

This is another picture of Daphne. These are my kids.

And now your daily Dave Matthews

    Glad you added the photos. Your babies are so cute. Love the picture of Niles. He is a tired boy. I bed Eddie enjoyed his alone time with his Mommy, and Dapne is sweet in her picture pose.

    Your dogs are adorable! Sounds like you and the pups enjoyed the walk, so that's pretty good reason to do it again!

Have a good weekend!

Happy Friday Yall! emoticon

Not much to report today, just waiting for the never ending work day to, well, end. I just counted my NSV as dodging the work potluck yesterday.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! emoticon

    Congrats on not partaking in the potluck! Those can often be situations where people who are trying to be "helpful" or your friendly neighborhood "food pushers" will continue to ask you if you are sure you don't want this sweet thing...just one bite...or the casserole...come on, how many calories can be in one bite? These are the things that can get us in trouble. Sounds like you definitely earned a emoticon for that! Enjoy your weekend!

Work Potluck and the Attempted Sabotage

Thursday, September 05, 2013

So I got out of the work potluck without incident. emoticon
And I don't feel deprived. I thought the smell of fried chicken would entice me but it didn't. It made me a little nauseated actually. I had some veggies without dip or dressing and it was good. I feel great!

But I believe the soundtrack of the day would include the Beastie Boys song "Sabotage".
What? Occasionally I listen to other music then DMB....Emphasis on occasionally. lol Have a great Thursday SparkFriends and thank you for your continued encouragement. You guys ROCK! emoticon

And here's my daily Dave. Like Dave in this pic, Today I'm cool, calm, and a bit goofy!

Sweaty, Content, Calm, Stressed, okay

Daily Dave Matthews Pic

I'm listening to Dave Matthews Band Live at Piedmont Park 2007 today.

It's crazy at work today, So I've been switching back and forth from calm to stressed. Also it's crazy humid so I'm sweaty when I go on my walks. Over all I'm ok.

I have to check and listen to Dave Matthews you mentioned. I don't know him at all.

SparkCoach: Daily Visualization; Imagine a world without scales

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

Today, imagine that you live in a world where scales do not exist. How would you measure your success? How would you know if you were healthy and fit?

I would measure my success by using my clothes as a guide. I would gage my wellness by how I feel and how much energy I have. I would know that I'm healthy and fit by how much activity and how many things I can do in my waking hours.

I try not to rely so heavily on scales but my doctor says If I don't lose pounds he will recommend I get weight loss surgery. I DO NOT WANT SURGERY! I know people who have had it, it's great for them but not for me. I want to be healthy not skinny for the sake of being skinny. I wish he wouldn't focus so much on the scale but I guess that's what they do. Anyhoo I tend to measure my success by how I feel rather than the scale nazi.

    emoticon That's a tough one for me too. I feel if I lost weight I can run/walk faster. Also my propensity for high blood pressure is correlated to my weight. I have definitely made changes to my eating - reducing fast food, increasing vegetables but I think it's portion control.

    That's the way to do it !! The way you feel & how your clothes fit is a good indication on how you are doing.

Not all healthy people are "skinny minny", and not all "skinny minnies" are healthy. You be the judge of yourself. emoticon
