what a choice, a choice to live healthy

Sunday, December 09, 2012

Well I went on the big coon hunt last night. Mostly, as I had suspected, me and my friend sat around the tailgate, waiting on her hubby and sons to follow the dogs around.
But I had a great time, we drove some very deep backroads and seen some great scenery.
Cant wait to go back again.
Today I got my walk just before the rain came, and now they tell me we might see snow soon.
I knew it had to happen.
And today I got a shirt out of my closet, one I had bought just after the Tsunami hit Japan.
It was a promotional shirt put out by Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones in order to help raise money for the relief effort.
I could not wear the shirt, being an adult 1x...but seemed pretty small, to me anyway.
Today I got the shirt out and tried it on and low and behold....IT FITS!!!!
I feel good about it and I know that even though I have been in a bit of a plateau, I cannot stop and I cannot let myself stress too much about it.
I will continue to lose, maybe not as much as I had hoped, and maybe not at the rate that I have already.
But my decisions are clearer to me.
After talking to a good friend last night about life decisions and choices...I realized that even the food choices, and choosing to drink a beer, or two or three or four....It is all just a choice.
He said to me, "we can only be defined by our own actions"....
It really hit home to me....I have to act better.
I have to act like someone who really wants to lose weight and get healthy.
I will be defined by my actions.
And I am glad to see things more clearly today.
Well, here is a pic of me in the shirt, not a good pic of the shirt, but I will put some more on when I can.
Hope everyone is having a nice fit and healthy Sunday.....

Well tonight was to be the big coon hunt, but not sure if its gonna happen, its been sprinkling rain here this evening and turning cooler.
I sure was looking forward mostly to just getting out of the house with friends for awhile.
But I spent the day with my mom and sister, shopping, but not really.
I did buy a few little things, and bought myself a mossy oak camo shirt to wear on the walking track on cooler days.
I love camo, and mostly pink.
I have done good with calories today, of course, I am having a cold one, or two, so huhhhhh, maybe I will have to watch it.
Was an ok day.
Cannot wait for warmer days to return.
Pics of my nails someone asked to see.

    LOVE the polish color you picked out! It will go with most anything, especially Mossy Is the shirt you bought one of those that has the pink in the camo too? I think pink camo is fun, but a few hardcores that I know fuss that "I'm sure you are really hiding from someone in your PINK in the middle of the woods." My reply is that most wildlife are supposedly color-blind, and I don't mind being found in the woods if I twist my ankle.
Have a great one today despite the foggy, wet mess I'm seeing so far!

Today was to be my regular weigh in day. However, I have decided to skip the weigh in til next Tuesday, give myself a week to get back on the right track and the walking track.
Planned to walk today, and yet here we go again with another windy day, too windy.
So, I guess its the bike and the weights for me....which I really need the weights more right now anyway!!!
I cant say I am really "off track" too much with my food....just havent really been counting it as much as I should.
Maybe having a few too many late evening snacks, and even though it is 100 calorie snacks, they do add up.
But I havent gone over but maybe 2 days and not by a heckuva lot.
Today, even though I didnt get to walk has really been a good good good day.
I got to see two of my dearest and bestest people and I am really feeling good.
Cant wait til tomorrow for my mani/pedi spa day and then, even with pretty painted pink toes....I will go to the walking track and walk.
I miss my walking and my music....I need a fix real bad, maybe I will just have to cover my head with a scarf and push on against the wind......
Have a great one!!!

    I'd try for the walk. Dress in layers and definitely cover your head. Put some "warm" music on--Beach Boys? Seriously, anything that gets you moving and makes you happy.

my ranting angry hateful blog

Friday, November 23, 2012

In the grand scheme of thing, yesterday's Thanksgiving Day, was one of the worst freakin day of my life!!!!
It ranks right up there with the day my dog died.
I am just sick of other people.
I would rather not spend one more minute of my life wasting on pretending to like people or pretending to give a crap about what they are saying to me or what they are asking me.
I would rather be left alone.
I didnt need yesterday.
Oh well, life goes on, for some. A very very important person in my life lost his dad yesterday.
He had been battling cancer for a long time and had been in and out of the hospital for the last two months.
It was just a bad day.
Today wasnt that much better....maybe just a little.
I have blogged about how much I despise this colder weather...well, my hatred is growing ever more, as tonight we are supposed to be seeing flurries and temps will be dropping near the teens the next few nights.
and on top of everything else, the NEW laptop I bought 9 days ago is already screwed up and I had to call tech support today and they told me to do a reset, since I hadnt added any important files or pics or programs.
Oh joy!!!
I havent even tried it, if I get on in the morning to the same problem, its going back to the store.
Life is not a box of chocolates, its more like a big bowl of stinking rotting leftover rotten eggs!!!!

    One of my favorites....

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense."

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

On days like you had, I read this before bed and breathe deep. I hope it helps you look forward to having a serene tomorrow.

was a pretty good day, went to the doc, and my cholesterol numbers were good
186 and 55
my bp was up
but, my weight was down 54 pounds since may 24, i go back to her on feb 20th, and i am hoping to lose at least 20 more pounds by then, maybe even 25, but i aint putting the cart before the horse
i am just happy i got to walk today and feel good....
wishing everyone a healthy happy thanksgiving, remember no one is forcing those yams and marshmellows on you
no one is making you take that third roll off the plate
no one is telling you that you cant or shouldnt exercise because its a holiday
just stick to your plan and if you slip a little bit dont beat yourself up all week

    I had my first Thanksgiving meal with my family today, and I did quite well.

I went off of the "taste everything, eat nothing" philosophy, and had a portion of turkey and a small sample of all of the side dishes. It was a great meal!

I hope you enjoy your holiday!!!
