It's been a very long time...

Monday, October 21, 2013

Just made my 60th birthday a few days ago, and I'm having a little challenge coming to terms with it. I've gotten so far off track I can no longer even see it. My house looks like it has been pillaged, my bicycle has a flat tire, nothing fits anymore, and I'm having a hard time caring about it.
Soooooo, this crap has to stop right now! Tomorrow is a very good day to make my way back to health, both physical and mental. I have to work tomorrow, and I have the next 2 days off after that. Excavation time!
I need to get healthy for many reasons; Master Miles (the latest grandbaby) is toddling 90 to nothing and it's becoming a challenge to keep up with him.
Lighting candles for myself.

WOW! the big Six-Ohhhhhhhhh! CELEBRATE!


Baby-step by baby-step, Jenn. Many of us know the predicament you describe very well...and SparkPeople is a GREAT place to "work it on out"--

Oh, and "a word to the wise" on tracking ("wise" = YOU!) --



And, last thing, a friend just shared this on another blog and it seems like such good advice, I decided to copy-and-paste it for your perusal:

"I have grown to actually enjoy tracking. I learn SO much from it. Just the other day, I had a horrible lunch (as in way overboard in fat and calories). The FIRST THING I did was to track it. Then I went with Coach Nicole's plan of one step backwards (eating a BAD lunch) and two steps forward (planning a low calories, heavy nutrient dinner AND doing a small workout).

"What a difference it all makes when we don't beat ourselves up, but just use the tools available to us to help with awareness!!"
P.S. Sometimes SP stuff REALLY why is the frigging link above DOUBLE-SPACING??? Anyway, it's worth the just get rid any spaces in the link (if there ARE any when you copy it to paste)!

BTW, I L-O-V-E your hitchhiking wallpaper photo --PRICELESS!
