special visit from aunt

Sunday, December 05, 2010

Hi everyone,

An aunt I haven't seen in over 15 yrs visited this weekend. It was great! We all had fun. Of course, I didn't have time to get on SP. I also had a family ladies Christmas luncheon on Saturday; very fun! Unfortunately, I ate too much Friday night, Sat. night, and today at lunch. I was good at the luncheon, large salad and fruit. Ended up gaining back weight instead of losing any. I am looking at it as I unique weekend and that I can exercise extra and watch more carefully my food intake this week. I am still looking and working to achieve a weight loss of 4 lbs by Christmas day. Thanks for reading. emoticon emoticon

  How special that you saw your aunt! What a nice early Christmas gift! Just take one day @ a time! Are you tracking your food? That is the best place to start. Don't regret if you overeat. You had a wonderful attitude about the weekend!!!! Good for YOU!! emoticon emoticon emoticon This week will be better!

Hello. This weekend reminded me of all I have - not material possessions or money - but what truly matters; family and friends. Also, even though I have health problems, I am still able (most days) to get up and move around. I have children who reminds me how to play and have fun. I have pets that remind me of unconditional love; parents and siblings that remind me I am not alone in this world and friends who reminds me, we can make our own families. Thank the good Lord for the beautiful day and the people around me. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Just read this from Powerlines for Women:

"The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way." Unknown

It is not what we have or can do that should make us happy, it is what is within us that allows us to be happy. I battle a form of depression every day and yet my happiness is within me (just hidden sometimes by my disease.)

I reached my first weight lose goal. I am also enjoying the kickboxing dvd, Leslie Sansone Walk and Kick. My 6-yr old niece wants to join in. I love seeing a definite waist and just starting to show definition in my side abs. Yea. I pray that God continues to give my the strength and will to keep going. I would like to lose 10 lbs by Christmas.

I am starting to take an interest in things outside of my niece and nephews. This is good for me, I have battled depression for many years and I only now see an improvement in wanting to start (restart) some hobbies I gave up years ago. I'm drawing again! emoticon emoticon

emoticon to y'all.


Fell back several steps

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I haven't been walking or any other form of exercising and it is showing and I'm feeling it. I was busy with new classes and just didn't manage my time well. This has not help my stress level or sense of accomplishment. I have also been eating too many cookies!

I need to find my motivation again. emoticon emoticon emoticon

  Cookies are my downfall, too. I can't keep them in the house. Or chocolate, period. I'm not a person who can eat "just one!" Take care!
