Last night I did something DIFFERENT!

Friday, September 07, 2012

Last night I went to this New Horizons program out of OU, where people of "all ages" (mostly MY age) either learn to play an instrument or take up one they used to play. I have played with guitar for years (they didn't have Rock Band when I was a kid), and I thought maybe this would be a way to get better. Well, last night was a full orchestra, and they don't really use a guitar player, so I decided to try Upright Bass! They got me a loaner, you should see the thing - it's HUGE! So last night I just learned a little about the instrument, like how to hold it and the scale, then we went over a song. I think I'm going to like this! emoticon

Next Monday I'll be jamming with the Jazz Ensemble, and they DO take guitar players! Stay tuned.... emoticon

Lazy last night

Thursday, August 30, 2012

Well MY road to you-know-where will definitely be paved with my good intentions. I had EVERY intention of getting on the elliptical last night, and then maybe doing some much-needed Pilates. Instead my hubby and I watched "Act of Valor," a movie about Navy Seals and apparently starring actual Navy Seals. I believe that, too - the acting was awful! But it was an intense movie, good storyline. And it definitely got in the way, should have worked out FIRST and THEN watched it! emoticon Tomorrow my hubby & I are going to Tinsletown to watch "Lawless," and I'm SO EXCITED about it!!! emoticon Yep, you can tell what kind of movies I like to watch - lots of action, fighting, and Tom Hardy is in "Lawless," so bonus points there! emoticon

On a more serious note, tonight I'm looking into doing something REALLY challenging! Stay tuned....

    AHHH, temptations. They screw up tons of things! I loved Act of Valor - it is based on a true story I believe. It made me cry like a baby! We watched it while my son was at Marine Corp Boot Camp - not good timing.

I enjoyed reading your blog... thanks for reading mine too.

Honest about my weight

Monday, August 27, 2012

Well, I WAS down to 137 lbs, for awhile anyway. But now it's back up to 140.5 lbs (Stupid Scale! emoticon) It's been here for a few weeks, darnit! I'm over the Strep, and I've got about 6 weeks 'til the Zombie Run, so I need to GET BUSY!!! emoticon Need to clean up the diet, too -- famous last words!

  Trust me, I completely understand! I was down to the lowest I have ever been since having the kids at the beginning of the year and now I have gained everything back that I lost and a few of it's friends. Right now, I'm sitting at more than when I started SP last year. This year has been hell. But there is still time to whip our rear ends into shape! Let's do it!

WHY does this ALWAYS happen???

Thursday, August 16, 2012

I make a pledge to focus on my diet, determined to drop some emoticon lbs this month, and ramp up the exercising, and what happens? I get SICK!!! emoticon Somehow I got strepthroat again, missed 2 days of work and several days of working out! And of course, when you don't feel well you want that "comfort food" all the more. Probably should try to eat HEALTHIER when my throat hurts, to see if I can get well faster, but NOOOO, I over-indulged instead. I should make that a new goal: eat healthy & don't overindulge next time I get sick. Or maybe, don't get sick??? emoticon

At least today I'm feeling much better, in fact I just went for a short 10-15 min. walk emoticon Maybe try to do a little hand weights or stretchy band workout tonight, AFTER I get some last minute school supplies for my daughter. Hey, fighting the crowds at WalMart is a workout in itself sometimes! emoticon

    There should be a Wal Mart work out plan. You three laps around the inside of the building, dodging the lil old ladies on the motorized chairs. Avoiding kids in mid tantrum. then dash through the parking lot find your car

    Hi and sorry to here that you were sick. And it's really funny what you said about (being sick and what we choice to eat,) because I was thinking the same thing the other day when I wasn't feeling just right(head and neck aches, and that maybe if I was to eat better I might be feeling better) Good for you a walking workout, and I do agree with this too(fighting the crowds at WalMart is a workout in itself sometimes!) You are so right, and this is the first year in 20 years that I don't have to do it, good luck and hope you get out ok! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

New August Goal!

Thursday, August 09, 2012

Today is August 9, and I'm a little late making this, but I read another blog yesterday from a lady who managed to lose 8 lbs last month, and is going for 7 lbs this month. My lowest weight so far this year is 137 lbs, but it's gone up a couple of pounds since then. So, I will be joining my virtual 5K buddy in the goal of losing 7 lbs this month! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Starting today, I will begin to log my food intake at least 5 days a week, continue in 2B's August mini-challenge, and pay more attention to portion sizes. I would like to keep calories between 1500-1600 daily - and NOT kid myself into thinking I can do 1200 cals, that just ain't happening! emoticon

    I admire your desire to lose 7 lbs this month, but you may want to rethink as a bit too high, especially since the month is nearly 1/3 over. I don't mean to discourage you.
But in my experience it has worked a lot better to set smaller weight loss goals and have the satisfaction of meeting them. Something to think about.
