Got My Walk In, Today! Yea!!!!!

Psalm 86:15 But THOU, O LORD, art a GOD full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.

I praise YOU my LORD for loving me. Thank you for saving me! YOU are my awesome GOD, creator of the heavens and Earth.

My feet were still somewhat painful this morning and my back wasn't as bad. So I determined I would take that walk I planned for today. I was only suppose to walk for 20 minutes for my 5k training. I told hubbie if we felt like would could, we should walk more than that. The weather was perfect. Our dog was rearing to go. After 20 minutes, we determined we should do more. We ended up walking a brisk walk for 60 minutes. Yea!!!!!!!!! My feet are a little more painful, but worth it. I am resting my back and feet, before jumping into some strength training. Oh by the way, that two day emotional eating rampage cost me. The scales showed a 4 pound gain. Live and learn the hard way. I am on my game again and not going to anguish over it anymore. Move forward and work hard. I know who is in control and I have to be more obedient and disciplined.

Oh I wanted to share a cute bunch of funny things I read in a local town paper. Maybe you will get a good laugh as I did. Laughter is so good! Since I am a senior and losing weight I though these were funny.

The Rambling Of A Retired Mind:

I was thinking about how a status symbol of today is those cell phones that everyone has clipped onto their belt or purse. I can't afford one. So, I'm wearing my garage door opener.

I also made a cover for my hearing aid and now I have what they call blue teeth, I think.

I was thinking about old age and decided that old age is "when you still have the ball, but you are just to tired to bounce it."

I thought about making a fitness video for folks my age, and call it "Pumping Rust."

Employment application blanks always ask who is to be notified in case of an emergency. I think you should write, "A Good Doctor!"

The older I get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then my body and my fat have gotten to be really good friends.

Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it. Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

A feisty 70 year old woman had to call a furnace repairman. After a quick inspection the man put some oil into the motor and handed her a bill for $70 for labor. "Labor charges!" she exclaimed, "It only took you five minutes." The repairman explained that his company had a minimum one-hour charge on every house call. "Well, I want my remaining paid labor," the lady responded, and she handed him a rake. The repairman spent the next 55 minutes in her yard raking and bagging leaves.

*Hmmm? I am wondering if this just might be a true story. LOL

Hope you got a laugh. Have a great week! emoticon
