Finally!

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

I am moving in the right direction now! I thought that my day yesterday had surely done me in but it worked out to be OK. I have been keeping busy today so that I could finish here in good time and be ready to relax a little before time to fix dinner. DH called awhile ago and will be working late so I will just have some left overs for my dinner. Not much fixing to that!

A great day

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Where has this day gone? Here it is time to be relaxing already and I am just finishing up here. I have done a lot of "in between" things, I guess. I fixed our large meal for lunch today so that took some time out of my exercise time. I am not used to eating that much for lunch and am not very hungry at all this evening. I do seem to be ready for bed though! That is coming soon as DH goes back to work in the moning.

    Since my DH works evenings we always have our big meal of the day for lunch. Then I eat light in the evening.

Lost ground

Monday, July 01, 2013

This was not much surprise to me, but I am starting out this month weighing 3 pounds more than I did on the first day of last month. It seems to be taking me awhile to get settled back into a steady routine. I guess that you can't miss eleven days of paying attention and not expect consequences. The hard days for me are when DH is on his days off and of course that is now and on top of that our son is on vacation and is here, too. Too many meals to fix and please everyone! Of course I can't blame either of them as I know what I should be eating for me!

    We sure know what you mean! It hasn't been the same since DH retired at the beginning of this year. I enjoy having him home and wouldn't change that, but my time for myself has dwindled. And I do get tired of trying to fix 3 meals a day, plus he doesn't want to eat as healthy as I do. It's a problem we are lucky to have!

    We can both get back on track this month! Our DGS has been here since Memorial Day and he is going home on Saturday. We sure will miss him but ready to get back on track.

Hugs, Sunny

A bust!

Saturday, June 29, 2013

That is what this month has turned out to be for me. I thought that I was ready to get started again and my BIL called and said that he was coming to help me finish the dining room ceiling. Bless his heart, I was sure that I would have to live with a bare ceiling for the rest of my days! He came on Wednesday of last week and we tore down the old lathe and stripped the ceiling with boards every foot across the rafters so that we could staple the new tile to them. He needed to go home on Friday to spend some time with his wife. I started the tiles on Saturday morning and it went so well that I got it all done by Wednesday. The clean up was something else as there was, and still is, fine dirt in the air that probably will be in the air for awhile. I was working by myself and although I did not log any exercise or didn't get close to 10,000 steps a day, I was up and down the ladder for each and every tile that I put up! Believe me I felt like I had been working out by the end of each day. I, of course, did not log any meals and I know that I didn't eat right or nearly enough for the amount of work that I was doing. As a result my weight is back up 2 pounds so today I am trying very hard to get back on track.
My daughter from OK and her new husband came on Thursday and spent Friday morning with me. We went out to Fort Larned and enjoyed seeing it again as they are putting out new exhibits all of the time.
I have enjoyed getting back to SP today and my exercises! They have made some changes here to and so I missed the Poll Question and the Quiz today!

    Try to rest up today - you've had a busy time. Hope your ceiling turns
out to be what you wanted. Nice that you had a visit with your SIL and your Daughter. Hope next week is calmer!!!!!! emoticon

    I had to lay on the couch with an iced tea after reading about your long days of going up and down the ladder placing ceiling tiles. You keep doing the work and I'll do your resting for you!

    Welcome back. My DH had cataract surgery Tuesday, so keeping house dark and lots of drops for his eyes need to be carefully scheduled. Haven't even looked at SP for several days. I mowed the yard today with help from my dear sister and her husband. Really appreciate family! Glad you got help with your ceiling. Hope it turned out as nice as you had hoped!

    You KNOW you were exercising and getting in lots of movement. Your eating might not have been perfect but after this time, you can simply get back on track and the progress will follow. It is really nice that you got the ceiling done and that you got to visit with your daughter and SIL. Hope your weekend goes great.

Fun trip

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

We had a great trip and made it there and back with no problems. We got to see our grand children and great grands that we don't get to see often so that was exciting.

Not everything went without any hitches but we got through it. My new SIL likes to bake cakes so he made a huge cake and he and a friend were decorating it the night before the wedding. The cake broke in half which was a real shame since it was the best wedding cake that I ever ate! His friend works at a bakery and they had some cakes in the freezer so they had to decorate one of them. It turned out OK and we ate the original cake at the dinner after the wedding!

    What a terrific memory building trip! (And I personally wouldn't argue with having BOTH cakes!).

    Glad you had a good visit. I know you really enjoyed seeing the grandkids. Too bad about the cake but at least you all got to enjoy it.
