Lovely June

Thursday, June 28, 2012

I feel so blessed to have seen all 4 of my chillens and both wives this month. They are all in their 20's, but live scattered in PA and NY. We just got back from a trip to Buffalo--really a great, fun city, despite its economic woes. Went sailing, saw Shakespeare in the Park, walked, hung out with my chillens. My son and DIL are making a difference there in the inner city. So proud.

Lots of biking, walking, eating a tad over--sheesh the food thing is still hard. Oh my gosh Korean Tacos are the best! I guess I will always be a food addict. Yesterday--while on the phone with my sis--I mindlessly gulped a quart of blueberries I'd just picked, and followed it up with about 20 chocolate chips. Sigh. I've been away a lot this month, and only lost 3 lbs. I had been losing 7 a month. I guess I should be happy about that but instead I suddenly feel fat & discouraged. Need to remind myself that I CAN do this. Really. I am tall, and the middle of my "healthy" range is around 140. I will be OK with 145. But that won't happen until Jan 1, 2013.

Well OK I bought bigger weights yesterday for the SP 28-day bootcamp video. I am near the end of it. So I suddenly went up from 2 lb weights (all I had; for one-handed stuff I held them together to make 4 lbs, or added a resistance band) to 8 lb weights. Did the 52 minute Day 26 workout with 8 lb weights and now I think I am going to croak. Too much on my arms! Not fun! And I still have to do my 2.5 mile dog walk. And play guitar at the nursing home this afternoon on these arms! And help someone move tonight. A bit much today. Well I will get stronger.

Sparkies, we can do this. I think I need to read and blog more. And drink WATER when I think I need to eat. That helped me before. Hugs to all of you as you think about vacations or just spending a little extra time outdoors in God's beautiful creation.
