hi, thanks for all your comments, support and encouragement on my last blog, they were very much appreciated.

My grandchildren are over again, so I am going over to see them for the next few hours, saw them last night for a while. Do you think I am excited. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am going to try to get my son to take a couple of photos for me and the grandies today so that I can post them. So hopefully he will.

Cooked a few healthy meals last night, so I could freeze in the right portion sizes.

Be back later on.

lose of 1.4kgs this week. about 3lbs. So happy. I must admit not feeling hungry at the moment and by the end of the day I have to find something else to eat to increase my calories. I think this is because I am sticking to low carb foods and they are supposed to keep you fuller longer. A nice problem to have LOL.

So happy 1.4 kgs gone hurray. Happy,happy, so, so happy

thank you everyone who commented on my last blog. I have been very busy in my personal life lately and not having as much time on here. Finally got the death certificate for my ex so now we are busy sorting out all that.

I am now trying to cut out the high carb foods and sticking to the low GI foods to see if that helps me to lose some more weight. Eating has been really good.

I will be very busy again next week with a dietician appointment and 2 doctors appointments. Luckily the dietician and 1 doctors appt. is here but the other one I need to drive a couple hundred kms to see that doctor. A real pain in the you know where.

Weigh day tomorrow so I am hoping I have some good news. LOL

Hi, I will explain about the exercise class I go to. It is aimed for the older person. So it is gentle exercises. A lot of stretches, strength and a lot of movement. I must admit that it does raise my heartbeat and makes me breathe heavy and fast. Because of how it affects my breathing it is also cardio for me. The instructor breaks it up into about 20 to 25 minutes parts then we have a drink, then start again. The first part is a lot of movement , second part is usually chair exercises, third part is with a exercise ball, then the cool down. We use weights, resistance bands, noodles and other things, it all depends on the day. I do work up a sweat.
By my pedometer yesterday I did over 2000 steps there. I do enjoy it. Feel good today.

    Sounds like you are taking care of yourself again. That's great. We live pretty far from dr.s and we've had to travel to another state for my younger dd last year. If you have to spend the night because of travel for medical see if the place your staying has medical discounts. I know places around here who give discounts if they can verify you have an appointment. Good luck on all.

    That sounds like a good work out for you you. I had a gym membership and used to do a pilates class weekly for awhile, I miss the class concept because I was more committed to do the exercise when i was part of a regular group.
