I know, I stopped doing this; no excuse, other than I just didn't allow myself the time or the push to write.
Shy. and I used the Wii for a good hour, I am glad that we are back to that, we both have fun and burn calories at the same time. Then we set the timer for 15 minutes and each took a bedroom and tidied them up. I was surprised at how fast 15 minutes goes! I still had some get up and go so I swept the kitchen, the dining area before sitting down. We are both doing great with our food choices as well as watching some of the more pertinent nutrients; for me, Calcium and Vit. D are big, now that I have entered the realm of a chemically induced menopause it is really important for my bone health that I watch those carefully.
George is doing well, he has since been neutered and still trying to find out where he fits with the other cats. Of course he thinks he is the King of the house, and that is including us as his serfs!
My mother is doing well, as is my Dad who unknown to me was diagnosed with Diabetes (I am assuming type 2, my mom didn't know) in December. He has lost 27 pounds, cut out the handfuls of candy and salty popcorn, and they are embarking on an exercise plan for both of them. For now they are walking in place when the commercials are on, and you know how long those can be! LOL
Shy and I are doing the Chilly Challenge on the Country Sparker's team; we have both lost 5 pounds and are tickled both pink and blue (pink for her, blue for me..of course!) I have always lost weight the "wrong" way, I just would stop eating, settle for just the bare amount of calories to keep me upright. About 9 years ago I lost 80 pounds in a little over 3 months, not a good thing to do, so I am very happy with myself this time. I am taking it slow, fighting the urge to go back to that old habit, and moving! Shy has been instrumental in supporting me and I am helping her keep her motivation as well. I know this time we are both going to succeed, together she and I can do anything and get through anything together! We are just that strong!
