Happy Sunday all!!
We got a little rain this week ...of course we had to buy water for the tank first!!!... ha ha sigh...but there is a week of rain forecast so I'm looking forward to the tank filling. I find the seasons in Australia are long Summers and Winters and short Spring and Autumn.
With the rain I found myself wanting to find my knitting bag...hidden away since last Summer and get into it again. For many years with my back problem I couldn't knit at all so it has been a real blessing to get back into it since I have begun my weightloss journey.
I still can only knit for a couple of hours but I enjoy it so and it has to be 2nd after exercise . I'm still in the process of knitting the hedgehog Town Cryer as a reminder that Bec is graduating Medicine. He has a scroll you can write on to commemorate events.
One morning after the rain I woke to a 'white out' as the warm ground gets hit by the cool night air fog sits all around our house, we are on a hill and it is the most amazing sight. Bit like our journey in weight loss-- at the start we can only see in front of us but as we learn more and keep going soon we can see the finish line and beyond..... I know I'm so deep...:) I love to see the story in our lives.
Now enough procrastination, its week 62 weigh in and the loss was o.8 kgs so I'm happy with that. 21.4 kgs lost 20.6 to lose.
It was a hard week physically and emotionally as I didn't have much energy and by Saturday it was really hard to exercise. I'm still working on eating more but am a little hesitant to add new foods.
For Mothers Day I asked Bec for the latest Exhilarate set of discs from Zumba. She got them on Friday and gave them to me. (hubby not happy as he has a rule that you have to wait till the day whether birthday or Mothers day etc etc.)
So of course she said I had to open them and try them out, oh boy was it great. My old dvd's are for wii and have like a cartoon character showing you what to do. But these ones have people!!! and you feel like you are in the class!!! (Huge smile ...happy dance...).
They also come with hand weights that have some sort of beads in each end and make a COOL sound!!! (You can probably tell it doesn't take much to make me happy :))
So Saturday I did 3 hours; 2 hours of the ACTIVATE dvd and 1/2 hour of the RIPPED dvd with the hand held weights ---oh boy was it fun. By the time I came up for air... the family was all sitting around watching me and I hadn't even noticed!!!
The last half hour on that dvd was with a chair so LOVELY SON hauled me over a chair and I had a go but it was fast and furious and I mostly SAT on the chair, but managed to haul myself up for the cool down set. ha ha.
Hope something wonderful comes your way this week and fills you with smiles.
thanks so much for stopping by...
