Have to leave for work in 23 minutes and do something with my hair, too.... went swimming last night and looks like a fright wig... Off to a great start and happy the scale shows loss of 0.7 of a pound.... gotta keep up the exercise and reduced food intake...(I knew all along that is what it takes...)... emoticon emoticon emoticon

P.S. I got my Spark order with $20 discount from prepurchasing the Spark Book.. I got a woo-hoo shirt in black size 2xl (must be man's 2xl cause it's huge) and a new pedometer)...so happy with my purchases. Plan to wear the woo-hoo shirt to work tomorrow for casual day...

Exercising is loosening me up...

Wednesday, November 04, 2009

II have had difficulty exercising lately, but after swimming in the warm pool 2 times this week (Monday and Tuesday) I feel so much better and not so stiff as yesterday and day before. I did some leg lifts and bends and ankle motion exercises before getting out of bed this morning. Looking forward to swimming at 5:00 this afternoon after work. There is nothing worse for my new knee or my generalized arthritis than "skipping" exercise. Plan to get on the treadmill this a.m. before work...have enough time...I got up at 4:00 and am wide awake now at 4:30 and don't have to leave the house for work until 6:30.... emoticon emoticon emoticon

I actually managed to walk on the treadmill for 21 minutes equal to 1 miles before leaving for work.... emoticon

    I wish I had access to a pool in the winter time. In the summer I use my brother's pool. I find that keeping limber helps my "arther-itis" and I feel so much better after doing my morning walk. Keep up the exercise and swimming. Your rewards far outway the start-up dreads.

Gotta exercise more...

This damp weather has really brought out the arthritis and I see from my charting I have not exercised enough....

    There are times in the morning that my arthritis just doesn't want to let me move. I work thru it and feel so much better when I get R done. Keep moving because that helps with the stiffness.

    The very thought of winter coming makes my old bones hurt. It makes it extremely hard to talk myself into getting outside. That swimming especially if the pool is nice and heated sounds like an dream way to exercise. I am supposed to go check out a program at a gym not too far from here. They have a water aerobics class that sounds good. We just got to keep moving or else nothing is going to work right.

Halloween candy is going out the door....other food to food shelf..

Sunday, November 01, 2009

We had only 5 trick or treaters and had enough goodies for 50 kids. I ate only 2 small twixt bars yesterday and I am taking the leftovers out to the car and locking them in the trunk of my car and bringing them to work so all the people I work with who like goodies can have them. I don't feel bad about "wasting" them as I got them essentially free for changing a prescription to Walgreens and got a $25 gift certificate and the candy was part of my purchase. So out it goes or I will be walking by the bowl and snitching one here and one there and before you know it, there will be 500 calories a day or more added to my "nutrition." I feel good about getting it out of the house. I wonder if there is something else in my cupboards that should go to a food shelf? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    we had very few trick or treaters also..but i dont have to worry about the leftover candy because i was over at my daughters house and when i went home the candy stayed there! i had a small handful of m and ms. and that was it..but it was so hard as i have a sweet tooth big as a walrus or bigger! thats a great idea with the candy..out the door in the trunk. just give someone else the keys! LOL

    We only had 3. I purchased candy that I don't like, but my daughter will eat 2 or 3 pieces each day. I did however buy 1 bag of Kisses w/almonds that is going to work with my husband tomorrow for everyone there to enjoy. I haven't had even one piece. I know if I eat just one, then it will be hopeless.... the ensuing binge isn't worth it.

    To do lists are great to have. Getting them done is always a good feeling. Keep up the good work.

    When I make such lists, I love to post it right in front of me and then scratch out all that I have done. It is a satisfying feeling to see the list diminish in size. One thing at a time.

I have had clothes in my cupboard that needed repairing for years! I took out the most urgent and each day, I do one to three items. The pile is getting lower. I only have two or three items left now.

  I bought two large bags of individual pretzels so I can give out candy and pretzels. I like pretzels and can eat them and don't want to overeat them. Hope to not eat the candy I am giving the kids. I've done this before and it worked for me and the kids didn't mind getting pretzels. Works for me... Good luck with the treats.
