I woke up!! (hehehehe) Sorry. My brain was trying it's best to figure out what Pi equals last night .... it wasn't doing very well either. So I didn't get a lot of sleep so this morning I didn't get out of bed till 10:30. But surprisingly I've done a lot of stuff.
Cooked my self some oatmeal on the stove. (Did you know that it makes more that way and it taste better than using the microwave?)
Sat on the patio and read my devotional. Prayed for all of my wonderful friends.
Brushed the dogs ..... because they rolled in the grass ..... grrrr!
Did laundry. .... about 6 loads. And I actually put them all away!
Did a Walk Away The Pounds 1 mile walk. And did the whole mile! Then did some twisty weighted sitting up crunches.
Cleaned off the kitchen counter. Washed the dishes that won't fit in the dish washer.
Took daughter to youth.
Stopped by grocery store.
And in a little bit I go back to get daughter ....... Then I think I will go to bed.
But I feel good. I'm tired, but not exhausted. My throat is a little tight, but no more so then if I had been talking a lot. My chest has just a little pressure in it, but nothing like what it has been. I think that maybe I might finally be over this round. But still going to take it easy for a bit and gradually build my exercise time back up to what it was. I know that will probably take me about a month to get back to where I was, and that is ok.
I don't think I will lose the 20 pounds that I wanted to lose this year and that is ok too. Cause I've made other healthy diet changes that are good for me and are now part of my life. I can walk down the cookie aisle and not grab a couple packages of them. I can walk past the bakery and not get doughnuts or a cake. That goes along with the ice cream and candy and snack cakes. I know that I'm doing better and making better choices and that will pay off in the long run and that is what really matters. I may never get down to my goal weight, but if I can get myself healthier ..... Then I would be ok with having a pooch belly and flappy arms and jiggly legs. Because I would be HEALTHY! And sometimes I think that is better than a number on the scale.
Hope everybody is having a wonderful week!!
