I could not feel any air moving, and I was just miserable. Welcome back to school! I unpacked boxes and cleaned the room. It was one hard day of work! <BR> <BR> Linda Mon, 12 Aug 2013 22:22:05 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5452238 Back to work tomorrow! I hope it is not too hot! <BR> I had a good day of eating! <BR> Sun, 11 Aug 2013 22:40:45 EST Shopping http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5449111 I hate to go shopping for clothes. Younkers was having a warehouse clearance with another 20 percent off. I bought a couple of outfits. I am starting back to school on Monday, and I needed some cooler things to wear. The school is not air-conditioned. I will also need to buy a fan. <em>381</em> Thu, 8 Aug 2013 18:02:56 EST Eating out http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5447789 We've really been eating out lately! That can be hard on the diet. I ate a chicken fajita salad with salsa and no sour cream. It was very filling, and I loved all the veggies. I don't like the shells that come with many of the salads, so I don't order them. <BR> Wed, 7 Aug 2013 14:51:41 EST car show http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5445708 Culver's car show...Another show tonight. I did some walking and ate a salad. All in all...a good day. Mon, 5 Aug 2013 21:06:13 EST class reunion http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5444577 It was hard to look at my class reunion page because I am soooo fat. I just about cried when I saw them. I am working at being healthier...I need to stay motivated and not give up!!!! <BR> Sun, 4 Aug 2013 21:38:29 EST Pictures http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5441125 Anyone know how to upload a picture from iPad? Thu, 1 Aug 2013 13:32:11 EST Another car show http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5440261 We had another car show tonight! I don't get it! These people are clicky....I sat and read my book while my husband walked around looking at the cars. The food choice was a&w. I had diet rootbeer and a chicken sandwich with no mayo. I really needed a big salad and a bowl of fresh fruit...... Wed, 31 Jul 2013 21:06:29 EST Much better http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5438919 I went to bed at normal time, and I did sleep a good 8 hours. I had trouble falling asleep...need ear plugs. I don't think my husband's hearing is very good. <BR> <BR> Stayed with the program today with lots of added movement throughout the day...a good day it was for me. <em>252</em> Tue, 30 Jul 2013 18:23:10 EST Sleep would not come http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5437934 I did not sleep well last night. It was cool, but I was too hot. I finally got up and had some ice water thinking that I was dehydrated. That did not work. It is so frustrating. <BR> <BR> I love to watch Dr. Oz, and his show today was about sleep issues. I did not realize that turning on bright lights before bed could disturb my sleep rhythm. That is why televisions should not be in bedrooms. Lights from alarm clocks can disturb sleep. <BR> <BR> As I listened to his show, I realiz... Mon, 29 Jul 2013 22:27:55 EST Car shows http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5436752 Lots of car shows this weekend. We did spend time walking and looking at cars, but the food choices were definitely unhealthy. I made it through the weekend with a smile on my face. Have a good Monday.

Sun, 28 Jul 2013 23:15:33 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5433410 The scale is slowly moving..but it is moving. I have bee gradually adding more exercise <BR> Into my day. Keep going, LInda, you can do this! Thu, 25 Jul 2013 18:01:04 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5427392 I am not motivated to work out yet.

Thu, 18 Jul 2013 15:01:13 EST Missing in action http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5424437 That's me. I thought I could control my weight without support. Guess not. Without my support system, I have gained many pounds, and I must now commit myself to a lifetime of continual support. I know I need it. Thanks for being part of my support system. Wed, 17 Jul 2013 17:21:26 EST a good day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4437499 I made it swimming all five days this week. A good week for exercising. Fri, 19 Aug 2011 21:54:54 EST back to the basics http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4424998 I thought that I could do this alone without charting my daily program. I was wrong. Portion control was a major problem as well as forgetting what I was eating. It is time for me to reconsider my goals and charting. The visual cue that I get from charting helps me to focus on my health and well-being. Back to Sparking!!!
