Hey Wenesday!

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Another gorgeous Spring day in upstate New York. Wow! So warm and inviting. I met a friend to walk in our beautiful local park. We walked for about an hour. The birds were chirping...there were actually cows grazing right next to us. Amazing. Other walkers were walking there adorable dogs....what a way to start the day. So.....we left the park and ended up getting bagels with butter. Uggg...the food. My nemesis lately. Lunch was chicken with salsa and lettuce at Chipolte. Not too bad. Then the boys begged me to stop for ice cream at the local stand. I had a small dish of non fat frozen yogurt. Still full of sugar I'm sure. I need to take control. Come on Snookums! You know how to do this! Take your life back! The work outs are awesome! Now do the nutrition thing! Do this! So.... Dinner chicken with broccoli. Enough! Thats it! Hope my Sparkies are well!

    I love the weather too. Not as warm here as it is there, but I'll take what I can get. We actually have snow forecasted for the afternoon and evening. Yuck.

Anyways, I remember that I had a walking buddy that would reward herself after walking with either a doughnut or ice cream. Not a good idea. Really, sabotage.

So, when you're family members are begging for ice cream. Give it to them. Not yourself. I know you can do it. emoticon

Enjoy your weather.

    Sounds like you have the right idea. Try taking some veggies and fruits to snack on so you can avoid the sugary stuff. Have a good one.

    Good thing you got that nice walk in to get you ready for everything else in the day, right? Sounds like it's time to carry something healthy with you so you don't overindulge as much.

Hey Tuesday

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

I'm exhausted....I had a meeting with my therapist today. We actually talked about me today. Uggg... that is exhausting. I went to Zumba this morning and really feel like I'm starting to rock it again! Yay for that! The weather is so helping my mood. I've been drinking half caf coffee in the morning and early afternoon. It seems to give me a little push to get myself going. I'll take it. So dinner will be steamed fish and broccoli. Yummy and healthy. I can't believe how much sodium is bloating me lately. I really need to be aware of what I put in. I want to get really vigilant about food. Those shorts and cute tees are coming out and I need to make some changes. I'm getting some great walks in with friends as well as my Zumba 3 days a week. So exercise is spot on...its the darn food choices that are killing me. Focus...focus! Hope my Sparkies are all doing well. Have a great first day of Spring!

    It's something when you see the therapist isn't it? I think that all the walls come down and then, you're exposed and open and almost defenseless. It can be very exhausting.

It's so good to hear that you're in Zumba again. I know that you love that activity. I myself and walking more. Just being careful of NOT swinging my arms.

Have a great day.

What a gorgeous Monday!

Monday, March 12, 2012

Ahhhhhh....A spring Monday is upon us emoticon. Gotta love the sun and the birds chirping as one awakens emoticon. So today I have opened all of the windows. Getting some fresh air in this house. I went to Zumba yesterday. It felt wonderful. Thank God! We went to lunch and had grilled wings with sauces on the side. Yum. Food has been good but not great. I will work on this. We went for a walk in our local park with Chris and our great friend Mike. It was amazing to see Adam and Chris holding hands while strolling around. No bad words were sent our way from others strolling by or biking. Life is good. I called our painter and he came right over Saturday to measure and give an estimate on finishing off the basement. Yay! I'm feeling more like myself with making these decisions and phone calls accomplished! Joe actually put the new faucet in the kitchen! Woohoo! I'm actually looking forward to the gardening!!!! I'll take it! I'm looking forward to some Zumba tomorrow! Have a great day!

    You sound so happy.

I noticed that there are some summer birds here already when I was out walking to get the mail. It sure was a good sign to me.

Hey Saturday

Saturday, March 10, 2012

So life is going. Today not so great with the food. I binged. Uggg...I really don't know why. I will ponder this. Three days of Zumba this week! Yay! I'm glad I took two days off in a row before I Zumba again tomorrow. My foot doesn't feel great. We will see. God I love it though. So I have been making strides with phone calls and getting chores done. Score. We are getting our basement painted on Wenesday! I will feel great about that. I will be great about choices the rest of today. The boys are good. Joe is good. Weather is amazing. Love it! I'll work on more chores when I'm done with this blog. I'm enjoying reading my friends blogs lately. They have been helping. Thanks for sharing! Have a great day friends.

    Binging happens, the thing is to acknowledge it and move on.

Great to hear that you're having a good time, be easy on your foot!

Hi Wenesday

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

I went to another Zumba class yesterday. It was great! So glad to be back. There is a Zumba Gold certification in June that I'm going to register for! I also talked to a friend from the gym who works for a large assisted living community in the area and she says she has contacts that can help me start classes once I'm ready :)! Feeling good! Feeling positive! I know I need to take my time. I will. The inserts are helping soooo much. I used the boot last night and I think that helped too. Sooooo now we have to work on nutrition. I cut out desserts and sweets. Thats good. We will see. Guess what! Joe won the work trip again! We head to Buenos Aires in October!!!!! Yay! So thats a great reason to lose some pounds! I'm finding ways to schedule things to do during the day. That is helping. Have a great day!

    Nice to go on a trip! Congrats!

Isn't it sweet to be looking forward to something? Zumba is a passion for you and I really think you missed it. So, it's really good that you're going again.

They have a lady here that is taking Zumba and going for certification for teaching it. It will be nice when it's available here.

Have a great night.
