Lost a pound

Thursday, May 17, 2012


Finally, a pound lost. I have another 3 pounds to go before I can get down to 200 pounds. Yesterday I was at 204 pounds, today I'm at 203 pounds. I guess that I've done enough walking to lose the pounds. I forgot to add 2 walks yesterday by myself. One to a gas station to get a liter bottle of water to have when we went to get a transmission. The other was to the bank to deposit a check. Both are about 10 to 20 minutes combined.

I took the dog for a walk this morning. It was after I gave her her canned food. I am thinking of taking her for another walk this morning before dad gets up.

Has anyone heard and seen the video for Miranda Lambert's song Over You? It's such a moving song that I wish that it was around in October 2006 when my mom passed away. It describes how I feel since she's been gone. The song was written by Miranda and her hubby Blake Shelton. It's a true story about losing his brother when he was a kid. If you haven't, you need to. It's so moving. I almost break down and cry while listening to it.


Just gotten back from taking the dog for a 2nd walk. It gave me a chance to figure out how to put those two walks from yesterday down in minutes. I'm going to put them down for 10 minutes each even though the walk to the bank was longer but I spent equal time on each. I love taking walks with or without the dog.

I'm hoping to eat a bit light today and do more exercising because I may never know how busy we're going to be today or next week. The only times that I REALLY have time to do exercises is in the morning before dad gets up and after supper. I always carry a granola bar when we have them so if I need a snack away from home I can grab it.

I cannot believe that my grandniece Katelynn is 10 days old. It seems like only yesterday she was born. And it's been 4 days since I saw her. I would love to be holding her right now and giving her kisses and telling her how much I love her. And tell her about my mom, her great grandma. I know that my mom is her guardian angel. My mom is making sure that Katelynn is safe and sound.


Today has been a long day with us going to Galesburg, IL, twice. But both times were worth it. We might go back up there tomorrow to get what we took up there the 2nd time.

I took the dog for another 2 walks today. That makes 4 walks for today. I can tell that I have done them because I'm tired. I'm so close in falling asleep.

I just sent a text message to my youngest niece Heather to have her give Katelynn a kiss from us and see how she is. Plus if she's gained any weight. I haven't heard much out of them lately.


Got a reply from Heather. She's going to give Katelynn the kisses. She isn't sure how much Katelynn weighs yet. A checkup is scheduled for Wednesday which is my dad's 76th birthday. Just wish that I was back in Minnesota holding my little pumpkin.

Saw a onesie today that I wish that I had last week to take up there with us to Minnesota for Katelynn to use. But didn't. WIsh that I took a picture of it thought. Something about aunts.


Dad just got done spraying the house with Febreeze and I think that he over did it. I wasn't smelling what he was smelling back by the computer. It might take me a while to get to sleep with the amount that he sprayed.
