In memory of my husband.

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

my husband, Dave, passed away 6 years ago today from cancer. He was a week from turning 55 years old. We were the same age, well he was a little more than 3 months older than me, and we were married for 34 years, although we had been separated for a long time before he passed. We had 3 children together, and had been together since we were 17 years old. I always felt like we grew up together, then grew apart as we got older and our lives took different paths. We were still friends when he passed.
Hi birthday was 7/21/53.

    I'm sorry to hear this. Even though you were separated he was your children's father and that will never change. I am sure you see some of him in your children. I hope you think of the fond memories most often. emoticon

    Sending loving thoughts your way today....

We are about the same age! I was born in '52. I guess that means I can boss you around since I'm older.

My goals for July:

Track ALL my food.
Exercise 3x a week
Lose 5 lbs-again! lol
Cut down on smoking!

I want my goals in writing so hopefully I will stick to them! I was down to 155 for about a month or so then started gaining it right back. I vow to lose that 5 lbs again this month.

Lately, I have been smoking almost 2 packs a day again, and I vow to cut down to 1 pack a day again. Then I will work on smoking even less next month.

I have not walked or anything in a couple of months. I want to start walking at least 3x a week again. I may have to join another 5k to get me motivated again.

Everyday at work I buy fast food for lunch and sometimes breakfast too. I need to go shopping and take my lunch everyday again, and eat breakfast before I leave for work.

Those are my goals, and the steps I need to take to accomplish them!

Wish me luck!

    You can do it!

When I was working, I made my lunch the night before, it made getting ready the next day much easier! I also did my cooking with "planned leftovers" to take for my lunches.

Life doesn't have a remote control, get up and change it yourself!

I read that on Facebook and thought it was pretty funny.lol

I got an electric piano keyboard and a disk that teaches you how to play the piano. I really enjoy it and think I am actually learning something:)
It will be slow going, but it's so much fun learning it, that I don't mind. I have wanted to play a musical instrument all my life, but especially the piano, so this is like the top item on my 'bucket list".
I am already feeling better emotionally just from having something I am interested in and really want to do! i really think music is soothing and good for the soul:)

    I like that saying! It's spot on.

Congrats on the keyboard thing! I tried learning piano once, just kind of teaching myself and it did not go well. I never got out of the kids' book! lol
What is the name of the program you are using and having success with? I may try again as it's always been on my bucket list too!
