    That is GREAT! I'm going home tonight to check some things off my to-do list after dinner unless it has stopped raining, then I'll go for a walk after dinner. I plan on doing my 30 day shred DVD if it's raining though.

    I love the feeling of accomplishment that goes along with all that energy. This morning I cleanest and prepare homemade sauce and meatballs for my dinner tonight. I left my house to run an errand feeling pretty good about myslef!

You go girl!

Just Because

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

Just Because

So yesterday evening after my hubby got home I mowed the yard just for the exercise!! ( with a push mower lol didn't ride ) Can you believe that lol Both of my kiddos fell asleep, hubby came home and said he was going to mow the yard and I told him naa, I want to mow the yard. And I did all of it, it only took 50 minutes! But I felt good! Then we moved the patio furniture off the deck out to the kids play ground area because were about to re stain & water proof the decks.
I've also been taken the kiddos (one in a stroller and one walking with me) and going for a walk sometimes in the day while hubby's at work and sometimes when he comes home and he joins us.

I have found myself looking for stuff to do for the extra exercise out side of my exercise routine. lol Today I am thinking of rearranging the living room furniture. lol we will see its kinda heavy might need the hubbys help alittle lol

So like I said "just because" the more I do the more I want to do.

    That's awesome. I am hoping to blog tonight and it was going to be about this topic. Because I was wondering id others who were on this similar journey were finding themselves doing stuff like that.
.I have found myself doing all these little things because I have a harder time just sitting...good job on the mowing!

    That is really cool that you are finding extra ways to stay active. I know that when my kids were younger I found it hard to keep an activity going. Way to go!

Can anyone tell me why it is...

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

So this morning I read a blog by vintagemiss and well she got me thinking about this, this morning.......

Why is it so many people, want to tell you how to diet, what to eat what not to eat how to exercise..And just about 95% of the time its people who's never had to be on a diet! So how would they know in the first place and with that being said there stories always start off with a friend of mine did this or some one at church loss weight by doing this or ect ect... ITS ALWAYS SOMEONE else loss the weight by doing ( insert weight loss plan here) lol I just hate that you just want to scream at them LEAVE ME ALONE I have done good so far with out you help and I will continue to do so!! Or Thanks but no Thanks got it covered! lol
Oh and why is it that people always assume that your losing weight to catch up on whoring around.. just because yes I understand there maybe be some that end up doing that okay well that's them not everyone who loses weight is doing it for that. Okay so I haven't had this problem, being married no one is assuming that or atleast not that I know of but I have heard people say that about women trying to lose weight. Its just crazy!

Sorry folks its just a few things I've always wondered myself. Anyways off my soap box and on to a Great day!!
SO to all Have a GREAT day!! emoticon

    Someone asked me this morning how I'm loosing weight and I said, I go to the gym 6 days a week and watch what I eat. He said, "Oh, your not taking any shortcuts." What does that mean?? I'm with you, what I'm doing is working for me, leave me alone! :-)

    That drives me crazy as well. Finally I started speaking out and telling them thanks but I'm doing pretty well on my own. Or I always say what works for someone, doesn't mean it'll work for me. That tends to shut them up!

    You do whats working for you and ignore all those people! You are doing fabulous!
Most who try and suggest ways to lose weight are probably just trying to bring you down for their benefit.

You have a great day Tara!
