Sun, 29 May 2011 21:55:58 EST A wonderful Sunday....thank you God for this day. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4249497 Today I was back on track and it was wonderful. <BR> Started out the day like I wrote yesterday, with a wonderful breakfast. <em>490</em> <BR> Hubby and I then took Charlie for a really long walk around the lake <em>313</em> Unfortunately it got in the 80's and humid. Charlie is a little rat terrier, only 18lbs., and boy was he struggling. <em>338</em> So I wiped his fur down with some cool baby-wipes (yes he has baby-wipes) and lots of cool water <em>274</em> for all three of us. Brought... Sun, 22 May 2011 20:39:15 EST What a hard way to learn! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4247846 <em>39</em> Finally realized that it was never vitamins I was lacking in .... all along it has been my nutrition! Today I was just not hungry and so I haven't met my nutrition goal <em>42</em> and I also came up short Thursday and Friday, but today was the worst! Because of that I am exhausted. <em>24</em> So I am going to turn in early <em>102</em> get up at a decent time <em>128</em> and have a hearty breakfast <em>478</em> <em>490</em> <em>487</em> <em>469</em> <em>467</em> <em>4... Sat, 21 May 2011 21:45:40 EST oh boy I'm tired! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4246125 It is so nice outside that I tend to overdo....know that I shouldn't but darn I have so many gardens that if I don't work all day clearing out the weeds and junk, that I'll fall behind in planting. The animals burrowed under one of the big gardens this past winter and it appears that they ate all of my lily bulbs. <BR> Hope that they all gain a ton of weight <em>219</em> and cannot get out of the holes! I'm bad. <BR> Already looking toward tomorrow and hope that it doesn't <em>27</em> beca... Fri, 20 May 2011 20:21:43 EST Beautiful weather, wonderful day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4244340 Today was really nice in that the sun finally stayed out all day <em>67</em> allowing me to work outside. Gardening is my passion and since we have over 1 1/2 acres I have gardens <em>126</em> everywhere, and with the gardens are an awful lot of weeds! So weeding I did, for hours....I am so tired, but in a really good way. My husband cut the lawn and we took our Charlie for a nice long walk. <BR> The only problem with the day was that I didn't eat enough <em>39</em> <BR> I do know that I'... Thu, 19 May 2011 22:13:45 EST Lazy day but another good day. God loves me and I love my Lord. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4241808 What a lazy day this has been. Been on SP for one week and I forgot to <em>192</em> myself. <BR> No problem as I am not a big scale person and need to get a new one. I have already noticed that my clothes are fitting better. <em>244</em> Did some gardening and aerobic exercises at the same time. The neighbors must think I'm crazy, but I don't care.....I am feeling so must better and I am so motivated. My daughter just told me that her neighbor, a young mother of 3, is taking HCG ... Wed, 18 May 2011 19:17:33 EST Weather made for a wonderful day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4237416 Today was wonderful for me, my husband and my little dog Charlie. The <em>67</em> was shining so my husband, who is happy about my positive outlook and healthy eating and exercising suggested that we take Charlie for a walk <em>313</em> . We went to the prairie path and had a good workout. When we got home my new <em>217</em> had arrived, so while I filled the bird feeders, he made sure that everything was adjusted for me. He is such a sweetheart <em>342</em> that he made dinner! Afte... Mon, 16 May 2011 21:35:26 EST What a wonderful day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4234852 Although the weather was <em>27</em> is was still fun getting outside dressed for the elements. My little <em>338</em> Charlie loves going out in any weather and he also needs his <em>313</em> . So out we went in the drizzly cold weather while Charlie chased the squirrels and birds (he thinks he can catch them) and I looked like a nut running all around our property with him. <BR> Hubby made the <em>4</em> <em>190</em> and it was healthy and tasty. Thanks honey. <BR> Now I'm going to w... Sun, 15 May 2011 21:23:32 EST food, food, food http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4232830 <em>194</em> I'm getting all my water, and all my fruits and vegetables, <BR> <em>265</em> <em>291</em> but although I do eat protein <em>53</em> , I am falling short <em>39</em> , I must figure this out! <em>38</em> Sat, 14 May 2011 20:32:17 EST A new beginning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4230759 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/9/0/l904865395.jpg"> <BR> Just starting out, on SparkPeople for 48 hours, and I know that this is the place for me! <BR> Reading different posting has put me in a very positive place. In 2007 I joined a well know of weight loss club (WW) and did loose weight for my son's wedding, but I found myself leaving because so many of the members were very negative. Yes I did learn more about a healthy way of eating but they constantly change the plan. ... Fri, 13 May 2011 16:58:09 EST
