What I did today ..... August 15, 2012

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

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.

Cooked supper.

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!!

    You are so right. Being healthy is much more important than a number on a scale!

    So glad to read that you are feeling better. I think you are right, that being healthy is better than the number on the scale. That number is just one of the trackers of our health. Too low of a number is unhealthy just like too high. You have made awesome changes this year so give yourself a good pat on the back. Change is not easy; it takes effort. And you've done it. Keep the faith and keep sparking. You're doing fine!

    I love it! I'm glad you are feeling better and able to do more. It's great that you've met other goals on your way to the big goal. You may not lose the 20 pounds but you are making changes that will eventually get you there.

It's good to see your blogs again! emoticon

    You're so funny! After sleeping in yesterday, you really got a lot accomplished. I'm glad you are starting to get your stamina back. I love my Walk Away The Pounds DVD. It's not too complicated for those of us who are coordinationally (???) challenged, yet it gets the heart rate up. I love that she gives variations to take it easier or to bump up the challenge.

    You are doing wonderful Becky! I am sooooo glad to hear that you are feeling better:) I like what you did with writing down the stuff you did. Sometimes, if you don't write it down, you don't think you did anything......but you can see you really did a lot!

Good for you! I am so proud of you and you have an amazing attitude, and I really love that.

I think one day, you will be surprised.....all of your "baby steps" are going to suprise you. Not only will you be healthier, but you will find that you will be stronger too!

Thank you for sharing!
And keep at it. You are awesome!

Take care,

    You are doing great! Numbers on the scale don't matter so much to me either. It's the way I feel about myself, my healthy choices..most of the time, and the way my clothes fit. :) You can and will get down to your goal weight. Sometimes it takes a while, but you will do it!
By the way, are you for hire? LOL! HUGS!

    That is so great Becky. Sounds like you had a pretty full day. Healthy is always better than whatever the scale says for sure! emoticon

    Sounds like you had a good day despite the night's sleep or lack of sleep. Meanwhile, as I'm typing this my dog decided to destroy the sofa and knock things off the coffee table. GRRR!!
