It's my time

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Just won a hundred bonus goodie Spark points and I was so happy that I added some to it and bought myself a hot tub. OH YES I DID! emoticon Since I have a handicapped shower without a tub, and NEVER get to the beach or even a pool anymore, I thought it might be nice to indulge in a luxurious soak, if only in my dreams. emoticon I needed to spoil me, just this once. I guess it's just my turn for a change. On Friday past, I went to my daughter's salon and she gave me a make-over. When I went in I had long grey roots and white eye brows. When I came out I was my "true" light ash blonde self with light brown brows and no white strays. My DD took good care of her Mommy. I felt like a NEW WOMAN. Its even made it easier to go back and lose the 8.4 pounds of Storm Sandy weight that crept on from inactivity, fluid retention, salty foods, stress, and loneliness. Now that's over and I'm on the road to recovery, and expecting a good weight loss this coming Wednesday. I've even been exercising with my stretch bar that I retrieved from the far recesses of a bedroom corner. It's a really nice one with a hand grip and stretch tube. I bought it off a TV shopping show years ago! and IT'S IN ALMOST BRAND NEW SHAPE FOR IT'S AGE! lol emoticon emoticon
I really appreciate all the encouraging comments from everyone on my last blog. you spurred me on to activity. As its said, "tough times don't last, but tough people do." For anyone who's been on the weight loss road for half a century, you know what I mean. You've got to get up, brush yourself off, and start all over again. Got to emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It gets so frustrating sometimes, doesn't it!
It seems to take forever to lose those pounds and then they reappear in a twinkling.
I'm working to get back where I once was and it's slow going, but I take inspiration from and am motivated by blogs like this.

    You're doing great! I put some on this week and need to START pushing to get it and more off. Glad it's going better for you. BTW I have some of that "like new" equipment that I've had for quite a while, too.
