I did it! I did it! I did it!

Thursday, July 04, 2013

Yes, today we went for our walk earlier and was surprised to find more people there too.. most I ever sa. So, what did I do? I walked the full 3 laps today.... Buddy took a few drinks from is little dish and I actually decided to turn around at each lap and go the opposite way. I don't know if that is what did it or not, but whatever, I did it!!! As I turned to do the last lap, I thought, well, and why can't I stop and sit on the bench for a bit, I don't have to walk it all or nothing. So, I sat with another lady who told me she had lost 40 lbs. just by walking. So we talked and then Buddy and I completed our goal... And leave it to me to do it today when the temp is 32C with humidex..... WooHoo!

So, came home and had 2 pre-boiled eggs mashed into a salad with greek yogurt with a veggie bag for lunch and I am cooking up that broccoli that got a little too yellow, into a curried cream of broccoli, will use the rest of the greek yogurt dill pickle LF dip and see how that goes. Realized that I can also make curried veggies for a treat too. Tonite I will use bean sprouts as my fake spaghetti and break up a turkey burger with onions,peppers, and sauce for supper...

I'm doing it this time.... and so is my friend in CA, and anyone else who wants to come along for support and encouragement......

    Sounds like you are doing great. I've been coasting a bit, haven't given up, but the late night shifts at work have really thrown be for a loop. I was interviewed today for a different job, I'm praying I get it. Latest I would have to work would be 9 pm and I am totally comfortable with that.

It's hot here today also. I have fans going in every room and that is helping. Drinking lot's of water.

Take care. I'm on vacation next week, so will get back to blogging then.

    I went for a 4.9 mile walk today. My niece's house is the turnaround point and I stopped in for a bottle of water and to say hi and then walked back home. I am almost at 9000 steps for the day.

    Bravo on making it! You are doing so well! Bean sprouts as fake spagghetti, interesting! I can t say I have ever thought of using those!
When I have spaggetti I always used a spagghetti squash, but I don't even do that anymore, I just quit eating spagghetti, cause irt really wasn't one of my favorite things to eat anyways. Good for you for being imaginative with the sprouts!

    emoticon That is fantastic! All it takes is those initial steps, that all of a sudden turn into more and more.. It sure has been hot here too -tough to exercise and tough on the fur babies too!
Keep up the great work!
