A Good Day

Thursday, April 21, 2011

This morning I measured and found that I have lost an inch off my waist - the rest of the measurements are the same - including my weight. But, I got out a sweater I have had for a while and found that I could wear it!! WOO HOO. It had been just a little too tight to be comfortable. Now, that really feels good.

And, I have been trying to increase my steps each day. Have done fairly well this week - until today. Only 2128 this evening. So I took a walk around the block - well, actually a couple of blocks and now my pedometer shows 3750 for the day. That is really good for me. I know some of you are in the thousands - and maybe someday I will be too. But, for now 3750 looks great to me!!!

Now. it is time for a movie. Not sure what it will be - probably "Undercover Blues" with Kathleen Turner and Dennis Quaid. My son tells me it is a good movie.

  Congratulations to you! It's feels so good when you cross a threshold (wearing an old sweater and losing inches in your case!) you should be so proud of yourself!

    emoticon You are doing really well. I found that I really do like Leslie Sansone videos to walk with. There are several posted on youtube. They have helped to get me moving more since I have issues with my knee.

For All You Grandmothers

Friday, April 15, 2011

Just have to share this with you. My older daughter gave this to me a few years ago. It always makes me smile. I think of my Mother who said when she was in her 80's, "Sometimes I feel like I am 16 and then I look in the mirror." I told her to just break the mirror.

    This reminds me when I was a child my parents were into antiques. They had explained that for something to be an antique, it had to be over 60 years. Putting 2 & 2 together, I figured out that my grandmother was an antique. I believe that everyone got a laugh out of that, except my grandmother. emoticon

    I think Grandma's to-day are not like my Grandma was like.
They now at 80 Grandma's have more get up and go. More stylish.

I think the ones at 30 and 40 this young generation is more the Antique Little girls.

They complain more and they are tired more. They call on us more to help them. We can do circles around them.

Sorry that is my opinion. The 5o year old's time they get 80 will be awesome as they have learned from us.

Have to Give It Up!!

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

I know some of you have a hard time giving up chocolate - that is one food i would not miss. But, I realize that the one food I really have to give up - or at least get under control is cheese - i could eat cheese with most any thing!!

Like this evening for dinner. We had those small sirloin steaks from Schwans - oh, my, they are so good. And we had veggies and brown rice. But, my downfall was adding cheddar cheese to the rice. That is soooo gooood!!. I don't add soy sauce because of all the sodium. So am going to have to think about this one. If I could just limit the amount - but not sure i have the will power!!

My sister lives on the coast in Brookings and this was in her fortune cookie:

Tomorrow the seas of life will be calm and you can easily guide your ship. Onward, Captain!

A Thought for Today

Monday, April 04, 2011

A quote from Sylvia Ronsvale's book, The Empty Tomb -- "Americans spend more annually on soft drinks that the total amount given to churches".

Where are you spending your money? We know that those soft drinks have way toooo many calories, but we still continue to consume! Isn't there a worth cause that you could give at least part of the money to?

Just something to think about when you buy that next soda!
