Geez, where does the time go?? Lots going on here! We got the boat in the river and have had some fun times down there already! I went to Sesame Place for 2 days with daughter and grandkids. I wasn't really looking forward to it (I've never like amusement parks) but didn't want daughter to go by herself and her hubby couldn't get time off. So, I went. I am so glad I did!! We had a blast!!!! Sooooo much fun!! I have never liked rides so I don't even remember my last park ride---40 years ago???? I went on 3 rides with my grandkids! So proud of me--I didn't even get sick!!! OK--so they were kiddie rides but they went up/down and round and round!!! That's tough for an old lady!! LOL My granddaughter thanked me for going repeatedly on the way home.
I'm in a bit of a funk with healthy right now. Haven't tracked anything for a couple of weeks. Haven't walked in a couple of weeks at least. Just feel very blah about it. I've been trying to be careful about my eating. The bad news is I haven't gained an ounce. Maybe I would get moving if I did start to gain. I have been on Spark since December 2009 and I think I weigh about what I did then. I've lost and regained and gone through times like this when I'm doing nothing and still hang at the same weight. My body seems to like it here. But, although I weigh the same I don't look that great without moving---doughy, pudgy, a bit more than fluffy. I know, I know! I keep saying this is about healthy and not so much about weight but................I obviously have a hard time instilling that attitude in my brain!!! My son gets married July 2013 which gives me a year. I'd like to lose 10 pounds, would be happy with 5 but that little voice in my head says I will probably be right where I am right now. Hmm, a bit of sabotage????
I think this blah feeling has impacted my entire interaction with Spark. I'm not tracking, etc. I'm not blogging; not writing or responding much to my dear Spark friends. Just feel like I don't have much to share. Although, I still love all of you and am happy to read your entries and blogs, it seems I have nothing to say in reply.
I'm not depressed---I feel fine and, actually, things are going well right now. Well, I do have a sick dog which worries me but everyone else is fine. My son has been great since he got engaged--very open, conversational, up.
So life is good for me right now except for Spark and exercise. I seem to have a really hard time getting it "all together" at the same time!!!!!!
