Happy Halloween

Thursday, October 31, 2013



Hubby went to costume party this morn. I helped him dress, threading the beard through the beads with a wire. Hope he has lots of fun. Maybe he'll even win!

I have Gwen, so we stayed home. Tried on my ladybug costume for November 24th. Think I'll try to run in it today and see if it works. Running in costume on Halloween would not be too weird. Maybe I can get him to take my picture later. We'll see.

Happy Halloween to all who celebrate!!

LOVE Halloween! Its my favorite seasonal event! Participated in and won my share of costume contests (love face painting) but I don't bother anymore as I have no space to store such things. I just enjoy wandering around the neighborhood looking for decorated yards and seeing all the kids dressed up that come to Mom's door (60 last year) and also I go to her mall and see the two hours of special treat handouts the merchants do -you have never seen so many kids in one place!! Safest way to do it!
I would and have dressed up if Halloween fell on a bridge day I was playing.
Are Gwen and Natalie dressing up? Hope to see photos later..
Enjoy!

A Routine Blog

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Well, it's been great, but it is time to come down off of the cloud 9 of success story and popular blog and get back to the routine. Routine. Such an interesting word. Today I've been thinking about the routine and routines and the things I do routinely.

When I was a kid, fat though I was, I took baton lessons and tap lessons. Routines were something I learned to do precisely step by step the same way every time. I remember one competition routine to the Star Spangled Banner that although I have not performed it for 55 years, I still remember some of the steps. Without such precise routines the recital of dance groups would just be chaos and the individual competitor might leave out a required element.

Routine has been my friend at times and routine has been my downfall. There have been times I've resisted having routines, thinking that it kills spontaneity and creativity. Recently I have come to acknowledge the importance of my Flylady routines. Although I don't do them step by step the same every day, there is value to scissor kicking the sheets before I get out of bed and finishing the making process in seconds, followed by bathroom and swishing and swiping, and getting dressed to the shoe laces immediately after. Following Flylady routines I can actually be more spontaneous and perhaps creative because I'm not wasting my thinking time on the mundane -- I've got those things automatically covered.

We talk a lot about eating habits and our active lifestyle, both good concepts. But when I think about my grocery planning and cooking routines, I'm thinking about my movements and the order in which I do things which lead to the meal results that become my eating habits. I recognize that some of my success is due to the way I clear the table and store the leftovers and plan to use those leftovers to make more healthy meals. Some of my previous problems were because I didn't stash and wisely use leftovers. Making that grocery list and thinking ahead are steps to success. Even today, I just don't eat as healthy when I try to wing it.

And when I packed my gym bag last evening, I thought about having clean sports bras and running socks always available. I remembered 4 or 5 years ago when I was establishing exercise routines and how if I would just put my shoes on I'd be much more likely to stick to my planned activity.

As I was writing this blog, I decided to look up the word routine just to make sure I'm not way off base. I found two definitions 1. "a sequence of actions regularly followed; a fixed program" and 2."performed as part of a regular procedure rather than for a special reason." I was really thinking more of definition one, but definition two is also important. The regular procedures I develop for eating and exercise are truly more important to my success than the birthday meal or the occasional meal out.

So, today for me it is back to routine. I have good healthy eating and exercise routines. I'll continue to look for ways to improve them, but most of all, I will recognize and value that my routines are crucial for my success and happiness.

    Good job Marsha! I tend to think of good routines as a partner of good habits. Once the routine becomes a habit, it is much easier to concentrate on other things like being spontaneous.

    You are way too modest: no blog of yours is ever routine.

It always interests me how much people overvalue "spontaneity" and even "creativity". We're a lot more eager to engage in spontaneous eating than spontaneous exercise! And I'd bet that a lot of really genuine creativity actually depends upon knowing the basics (which we learn through routine): the creative clarinetist also learned her scales, right?

    You made me feel good about my routines, thanks! Somehow, I got it in my head that if I didn't do the Flylady routines step-by-step, then I wasn't really a Flybaby. Your blog made me realize that I really am organized in my own way. I've always made my bed, because I like it made up, and long before Flylady, I was in the habit of laying out the next day's clothes and prepping my gym bag (though I have to admit the brain fart that let me get to the rec center to swim before discovering I'd left my suit at home).

I also approach the storing and use of leftovers they way you do, and today we waste very little food. Thanks again for helping me feel better about myself.

Can't Quit Smiling

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

It's been a heady experience to become an official SP Success Story and to get such great comments on the story and on my blog about it. Thanks to all of you who just made this such a fun time in my life! I am now averaging one Popular Blog Award per year. And while I know many of you have racked up far more than that, for me it feels just right.

And talk about averages and feeling just right, my weight is staying very near that sweet spot I've been aiming for. My run today felt really good and I'm feeling confident about my 2nd half marathon coming up in 11 days. Hubby and I are going for our 4th dance lesson this evening which will be a lot of fun. My Flylady weekly home blessing is done and the house feels comfortably organized and reasonably clean (just don't look at the garage or back porch). Both granddaughters are thriving and I'm still delighted to be able to care for them regularly. Honestly, life is good. In fact, I just can't quit smiling!!

When ONEKIDSMOM, Barb, was a featured SparkPeople success story, she didn't put it in her status or put a link to it in her blog. She wrote a profound blog about heros and she-ros and about how even successful maintainers are human, having and handling slips:

www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo
urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=5506688


I agree with everything she wrote and admire her class, her restraint, her style and writing skill.

However, I'm not that subtle and subdued. I'm an official SP success story as of today, and I am celebrating. I think it is really cool! Forgive me for total lack of modesty! Happy Dance! WooHoo!! Hooray!!! What an honor!

Check it out:
www.sparkpeople.com/blog/blog.asp?po
st=86_pounds_down_marsha_is_one_active
_grandma


And following Barb's lead, I refuse to accept this designation as greater pressure. I am human. If (okay -- when) I slip, I'll still look to my SparkFriends for support and wisdom. So, please, SparkFriends, celebrate with me today, but put no halo on my head.

I've lost 86 pounds after 5 decades of being overweight or obese. My life has changed and is so much better. I now love to run and will soon run my second half marathon race. I claim and embrace this success and hope to say to others:

*it doesn't matter if you've been overweight your whole life
*it doesn't matter how old you are
*it doesn't matter if you have a lot of weight to lose
*it doesn't matter if you've never been athletic
*it doesn't matter if you've been a couch potato for decades
*it doesn't matter if you've gained weight back time and time again

YOU can lose weight. YOU can maintain. YOU can change your life. YOU can feel energetic and successful! What is one small thing you can do today to improve your eating and your life? Do it! Wishing you the experience of being a SP success story!

    You do look wonderful and happy. I have been overweight for 20 years now and at 67 I wonder what it will take to get my metabolism up and running enough to lose.
