No Weight Loss - Yet!!

Friday, February 05, 2010

Have not lost any weight yet - but am feeling so much better. I am more limber and have lots more energy. Next I am going to do some measurements and chart them.

Mostly, I am just making small changes in my eating habits: drinking less coffee and more water, eating more fruit - one staple i have always included every day is salad. Have also been exercising every day - even if it is only 10 minutes. I am concentrating on consistency at this point - and know that it will eventually pay off!!!

Also, i log in here every day - and read blogs from the great people here! And, am so encouraged. I don't have anyone in my family or friends to be accountable to - so depend on this site for all the encouragement and input I need. - And, have not been disappointed!
Thanks to everyone who has commented on my blogs.
Love you all!!

    The scale is so over rated. Measurements are good but how you feel is most important. I'm glad you are already seeing the positives in your energy and physical fitness

Bye-Bye Old Books

Saturday, January 30, 2010

Can't believe how much I have gotten done today! Have about 10 books to take to the used book store and about 10 to discard. Also, emptied 8 notebooks and the contents are going bye-bye. Now have room for the stack of books on the dining room table.
Well, back to work - just took a break to eat some salad and a couple of taquitos.
So yummy with wasabi.


Recipes and a Birthday!

Sunday, January 24, 2010

Thank you SERENA_DOVE for the Chicken Recipe suggestion. It is definitely a keeper. Served it with noodles and steamed carrots.
Have found a couple more recipes here at SparkPeople I am going to try.

Today is my daughter's birthday (she is now 46) and I would love to fix tacos for her and the family - but we are fighting a flu bug - and that is something I do not want to share. In June she will graduate finish Nurses' training. I am so proud of her - she is married with 4 children, Jordon in the Navy, stationed in SanDiego, Samantha, 16, Jenni, 12, and Jill, 9. They also have horses, dogs, cats, chickens...... Need I say more about what a busy little lady she is. I am so proud of her.


Learning to Cook

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Another son comes over for "dinner and a movie" Mon. evenings.
And, last night we watched "Julia & Julie". It almost makes me want to
learn to cook.
I was a single Mom with 3-5 kids at a time - each one had
to spend a year with Dad - but they were ready to come back home.
So, I never really learned to Cook. And, now i just don't like to spend
the time.
So, I have a few favorites that I fix. I collect recipes i would like to try -
but just don't. Mon. evening when Greg comes over would be a good time
to try new ones.
Perhaps that would be a good goal to set - a new recipe each week.
Must think about that this week.

Yesterday's Walk

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Was going to take a walk yesterday- that is part of my resolve I have not started yet - walking. Did lots of cleaning in our apartment and then to WalMart.

I parked out and as I walked in, I decided i would just take that walk in the store. So, as I picked up from my list, I walked across the store at least 5 times - and then back out to my car. I tried to count the steps, but just has to estimate.

But, at least, I did some walking!! YEAH!!
