Oh, my goodness!!

Saturday, April 24, 2010

Oh, my goodness!! Just can't believe. I have lost another inch off my waist and half inch off thigh. I have not weighed for a while, but do not think I have lost any weight.
But that is OK - right now my goal is just to work on some good habits - like taking my calcium and vitamins and drinking more water - which I have been doing this week.
And exercising consistently -even for a few minutes a day.

Was a little down today - just very busy at work and lots happening this weekend.
A bright spot was lunch with my daughter on Wed. Will be so glad when she is finished with her nursing program in June! YEAH!!

But, this is very encouraging - since I did not really exercise today - but did go up and down the stairs a number of times.

Well, it is after midnight and have a full day tomorrow so suppose I should get some sleep.

Thanks for all the inspiration and encouragement.
Blessings to all,

  yay! way to go! We often focus only on losing weight and get down when that does not happen, so it is great to lose inches and really see that all that hard work does pay off.

Keep up the good work.

Moving More

Friday, April 23, 2010

Am finding little ways to move more during the day.
I have a pedometer, so when I am at work here at the church, I take it with me and walk down the hall, down the stairs, along the hall downstairs, and back up the stairs next to my office. I do this about 3 or 4 times a couple times a day.
The stairs are getting easier each day - and I am burning a few more calories.


A Weekend with Juliet!!

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

I had such a good weekend at Hood River. Met my son who lives in Vancouver and his ex-wife and her little 2 and half year old daughter. Jennifer was taking another Yoga class, so Gordon and I took care of Juliet.

Sat morning we had to take her to the emergency room at the Hospital. She had an infection in her eye and it was quite red. She was so cute as we waited for the doctor. We had the TV on and she was showing us all her "moves." She sure mimics her mother. Then we were off to Walgreens to pick up her prescription. Off she went to find the "animals". She found a floppy duck that is bigger than she is - and, of course, my son had to buy it for her.

At a park on the river, she went wading and played at the playground. Tried to get some pictures, but my camera had run down. I had taken too many videos. Of course, she is such a beautiful little one!! Just wish I could be more a part of her life - even tho she is not really a granddaughter.

But, she did call me "grandma" and that just warmed my heart.


A Bad Habit!!

Saturday, April 03, 2010

Still not taking my vitamins and calcium daily! I put them in my pocket in the morning and then take them out in the evening and place on my dresser!! Have found that osmosis does not work here.

Am reading Chuck Swindoll's bo0k, The Grace Awakening, and this morning found the following: "Old habits are terribly difficult to break". My behavior has become one of those habits!! Now that I finally recognize it as a habit, perhaps it will be easier to begin taking my pills. Have found that I do need to take them when I have eaten - cannot take on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. Now to find the best time during the day to take them - and form another habit. How long does it take to make a habit? How long does it take to break a habit??

Have been drinking more water - still not enough - but I am working on it!!!

    Calcium pills can be hard on my stomach, I might need to find a good liquid kind. I know what you mean about not taking them everyday, I'm just like you. The only thing I take everyday is my Ganoderma, but that's because I can sleep better during the night, and depend on good sleep. The water will take a bit of time, but emoticon emoticonI drink up to 10 glasses of water now, I take psyllium powder an hour before a meal 3x a day and need the extra water to take with it. Best wishes on drinking extra water. emoticon
Have a wonderful weekend! emoticon emoticon

Coach Nicole's DVD

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

Just got Nicole's DVD "Fit, Firm & Fired Up" and did the first day yesterday - and, I can tell you - I have a long way to go. This is the first exercise DVD I have gotten - and i think it will be a real inspiration. I can tell that a variety in workout sessions can be beneficial - both physically and emotionally.

Will be glad when I can start walking outside again. The weather has not been the most inviting - actually i love to walk in the rain - but am not getting up earlier enough. Was for a while, but am just getting "lazy" in the mornings. I keep setting the snooze for another 30 minutes. Guess the best thing would be to quit doing that!! Maybe tomorrow - but, does tomorrow ever come?? Can't use that as an excuse.

Well, better get that DVD going so I can get in some time this morning before work.
Looks like 30 minute on the schedule for today.

Later, Barb
