Starting the Countdown...

Saturday, August 30, 2014

My daughter, Jan-Marie is getting married in Nov. but starts a new job in Michigan on Sept. 8th & will be moving there this Friday. I haven't checked in much this week. I was out of town Mon. - Wed. last week, helping JM look for a house to rent & did not get any exercise or tracking done...It showed on the scale...had almost a 3 lb. gain. I made many foolish choices this past week, eating junk, but today I managed to track, weigh & blog. I went to the store & bought a load of healthy food & feel that I have turned my attitude around to where it should be. Thank you in advance for your support. Take care & enjoy this Labor Day weekend...

    Those Big Events looming in the near future can put some contrary pressure on a good plan and it's tough to own the excitement without regressing into bad habits. When I'm in that situation, the best I can do is keep a short list handy of things I can do to soothe myself that don't involve food and do them every day. Keeping my goals visible (like on the fridge or pantry) helps too.

Good luck!

    Sometimes life gets in the way, and we make choices that are less than optimal. But you're back on track and we're proud of you.

Sunday...my day of rest...

Sunday, August 24, 2014

Did not get my bike ride in this morning but did make it to church. Had a healthy breakfast & lunch...Going to a comedy club this eve. at 7:30 & I need to make it a point to eat healthy before I leave...I posted a quote on Facebook this morning that really spoke to me....WE CANNOT BECOME WHOM WE NEED TO BE, IF WE REMAIN TO BE WHAT WE ARE. That is SO on the money. Well, that is about all for now. Take care & enjoy YOUR day of rest...

    Our Red Hats group went to a comedy play this afternoon and we had a blast. Did not get any exercise in today except laughing and did a lot of that. Have a good time at the comedy club Janey.

    I posted a similar saying the other day -- it's so true. We cannot remain as we are and change at the same time.

Still not back in the Groove on my bike...

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Had a good day yesterday, tracking & blogging but no exercise. My husband & I are active members of the BFD Auxiliary. We go to fire scenes & support the firefighters with cold water & drinks, snacks & cold towels. We arrived at the scene at 7:30 P.M. & left at 1:30 A.M. It was hot & humid & worse for the firefighters. I drank about six bottles of water during the time that I was on-scene & never went to the bathroom. I lost two lbs since yesterday but I feel that it was mostly sweat. Either way, I will take it...Please say a prayer for the many families that were displaced by the fire. By the time I got to bed, it was about 2:00 & trust me, I was zonked & slept till almost 10:00 this morning. Did not get my ride in & had a zillion errands to run. The temps were & still are hot so I chickened out of riding my bike. I ache all over & just feel the need to rest my weary bones from last night. ANYway...hope that everyone is having a good week...Take care...

    I'm a big believer in listening to my body when it is complaining about needing rest. I don't always push myself to "do more," but sometimes realize that what I really need is to do less. The same thing is true about food -- sometimes I need to eat more (healthy) food than I plan. Trying to get in synch with what my body really needs is a difficult thing to do (competing as it does with my own psychological desire to eat more and move less), but it's worth it. Enjoy your rest -- you earned it!

Off my Game a little...

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Not sure why, but I slept well, but too late. I did not get a ride in yet but still hope to. The temps are rising & I have to take a neighbor to get some lab work done in the afternoon. My scale is still smiling at me & I tracked my "brunch" food. I just need to get off this darn laptop & get some things done...yuk, that hot weather, full of humidity is calling my name...Gotta go...Take care...

    It is all right if you don't get your ride in today. Life happens and sometimes our body needs that extra rest. Just get back on track. emoticon emoticon
