Today was a productive day. I was able to get some more gardening done. We went to a local nursery and bought a bunch of shrubs. We'll be planting them next weekend. We still need to strip what's left of our lawn and prepare it for new sod. Our home had remained vacant for over a year before we purchased it several months ago. Just about everything died. It all needs replacing. That'll keep us busy for quite some time.lol Sun, 24 Feb 2013 21:20:30 EST 8th day blogging http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5260782 Today will be a long day. I've been having a terrible time sleeping for 5 nights now. I'm running on fumes. lol I feel that today will be productive. Sat, 23 Feb 2013 08:39:22 EST 7th day blogging http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5260386 Today turned out to be a gorgeous day. Fri, 22 Feb 2013 19:31:21 EST 6th day blogging http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5258890 Is there really hope for me? The answer is yes but I need to work really hard if I truly want it bad enough. Do I????? Thu, 21 Feb 2013 14:50:31 EST 5th day blogging http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5257239 I sat down several hours ago and set some specific goals. It helped me to make a commitment to myself to get healthier. Something that is long overdue. I am the type of person that needs a lot of motivation. I'm not usually a go-getter. I need time to think things through and weigh all my options. Pretty silly, especially about getting healthy. Anyway, it's the first step in the right direction. Wed, 20 Feb 2013 09:23:57 EST 4th day blogging http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5255831 Well it's early and I can't sleep, again. I've an appointment with my therapist this afternoon. I've been considering an IOP program. I'll see if she still thinks that that would still be best option for me. So far I've been really resisting it. <BR> Anyway, have a wonderful day. thanks for reading my blog. Tue, 19 Feb 2013 07:49:36 EST 3rd day blogging http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5255360 Today was another decent day. A bit chilly though. We were able to get the roses planted. I didn't do too bad on my eating, it could improve. I need to drink more water. I would like to incorporate more exercise into my day. All in all I wouldn't call today a failure. I am trying to be gentle with myself and do the best that I can. Mon, 18 Feb 2013 20:37:16 EST February 16th, day 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5253617 Today has proven to be a better day so far.... The sun is shining. I've spent the morning with my husband and enjoyed it completely. My daughter is coming for the day. I so enjoy her company. <BR> I am on track with my intake of food so far, but it is only 10 am. We'll bbq later for dinner, yum. <BR> Positive attitude today. Sun, 17 Feb 2013 12:55:59 EST February 16th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5252788 I haven't been able to blog, until my wonderful and technical son fixed my computer. So this is my first blog in a long time. <BR> I have been away from SP for awhile and had returned several weeks ago. I am trying to get back into the swing of things. Like many people I had a weight loss only to gain it back again. I find that it is harder to get motivated this time. <BR> I suffer from severe depression and have been stuck in an episode since the beginning of the holidays. I know that seve...

We drove from Northern California to Pheonix, Arizona. I has been a long day.

I did some yardwork and stayed within my goals. Thu, 23 Aug 2012 22:22:25 EST Aug 22nd http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5026862 Today was a good day although I need to exercise more. Something other than walking would be prefered. Wed, 22 Aug 2012 19:34:56 EST Aug 21 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5025654 <em>213</em> Tue, 21 Aug 2012 23:12:32 EST Aug 20 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5023034 I cannot believe how fast this month is flying by. Time does not stand still for no man. So, I am busy getting healthier. Eating better and trying to get other exercise than just walking in. Mon, 20 Aug 2012 09:47:43 EST Aug 19th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5022627 Today was a great day. We celebrated my DD's birthday. It was a wonderful time. I managed to stay within my calorie range, although at the high end. It was well worth it. Mon, 20 Aug 2012 00:12:27 EST Aug 18 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5020275 It is very early in the morning, so I don't know how the day turned out. I feel that it will be a terrific day. I have a lot of cooking to do today to reheat at daughter's tomorrow for her birthday celebration. I also have a cake to make. I do plan on allowing a small piece of cake with extra fresh strawberries to help her celebrate. I am excited about her party. I always enjoy our visits every Sunday. It takes part of the sting away from her leaving home. LOL :) Anyway thank-you for readin...

We'll BBQ lunch, go bowling, head to the pool and enjoy a simple supper. Plain and simple Sunday. Sun, 12 Aug 2012 07:31:19 EST aug 11 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5011482 Not much to report. I got some exercise in and stayed within my calories today. I didn't sleep well last night. Sat, 11 Aug 2012 22:49:01 EST Aug 9th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5008629 Another HOT one. I went to the grocery store to get my walking in. Didn't walk as long as I'd like but at least it was something. Will try to finish tonight when it cools down. Thu, 9 Aug 2012 18:11:15 EST Aug 8th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5006825 Today is a HOT one. I'm glad that I was able to do my gardening this morning while it was still cool. Wed, 8 Aug 2012 14:18:45 EST Aug 7th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5005565 Stress, stress and more stress. I'm glad that I have learned ways to deal with stress. Exercise is a great stress reliever. Tue, 7 Aug 2012 18:30:28 EST Aug 6th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5003938 I had my weigh-in today. Down another 3 pounds. Mon, 6 Aug 2012 19:01:10 EST Aug 5th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5002825 I've been getting between 8 and 9 hrs of sleep each night. Much better than I had been getting. I am still getting up during the night, no matter what I try. Mon, 6 Aug 2012 01:21:56 EST Aug 4th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5001208 We've been looking at carpet samples today. So many to choose from. So many colors. Friday they'll come to measure the house and final choices will be made. So exciting. Sat, 4 Aug 2012 21:06:47 EST Aug 3rd http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5000130 We spent the day at our soon to be new house. There is just so much to be done. We will be picking out colors for the walls soon, and the carpet. Before we know it it'll be moving day. Fri, 3 Aug 2012 22:31:19 EST july 29th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4992301 Another decent day. Things are getting back to normal. I didn't overeat and I got some exercise. Sun, 29 Jul 2012 22:08:44 EST july 28th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4991116 today was a really decent day. I stayed within my goals. All I need to do is get more exercise in. Sat, 28 Jul 2012 23:46:32 EST July 26th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4988567 I need to blog about my sleeping progress. I fall asleep and wake up on a set schedule just about everyday. I do, however, find that I awaken several times during the night. It usually isn't for a long duration but it is every night. I get overheated and begin to sweat, then I get the chills from being damp. I also have an elderly dog that needs to be let out during the night. Thu, 26 Jul 2012 22:48:07 EST July 25th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4986700 <em>250</em> Wed, 25 Jul 2012 17:27:27 EST July 24th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4985279 Today is turning out to be a much better day. I have better control of my eating. I have even managed to do the Wii fit plus. Tue, 24 Jul 2012 19:32:09 EST July 23 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4983467 I am struggling to get back on track. Mon, 23 Jul 2012 15:32:56 EST Normal? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4981562 Starting today everything should be able to go back to normal (whatever that is). My grandson has gone home. My husband will go back to work on Monday. I am hoping to get myself back into more of a routine. My eating has suffered these last couple of days. I've been consuming above my caloric goals for the day. Mostly on junk, too. With my husband away, I haven't felt like cooking. Today is a new day for fresh beginnings, so, I'll get on track this morning. <BR> I've been able to get some fo... Sun, 22 Jul 2012 10:46:12 EST Challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4980271 Yesterday I totally fell apart. I had myself an emotional eating binge. I just kept stuffing my face. I knew at the time that what I was doing wasn't the best thing for me. I really didn't care to stop. So, today is the challenge for me. I need to get myself back on track. I still feel emotional and that is the problem. I do feel as though I have the strength to win the temptation battle. So here I go, wish me luck. Sat, 21 Jul 2012 09:57:29 EST All good things must end http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4979359 Micheal went home this morning. I am filled with sadness. I won't see him for another year. It is hard having the granchildren so far away. Fri, 20 Jul 2012 14:12:01 EST July 19th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4978490 Today we went atv riding. We had a wonderful time. It was Micheal's last day here in California. Tomorrow he goes home to Florida. Three weeks just flew by. Thu, 19 Jul 2012 22:38:20 EST July 18th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4975781 Today is a rest day after all the activities we have been doing with our grandson. Tomorrow is his last full day here and we will go ATV riding. I sure have enjoyed his visit. Wed, 18 Jul 2012 09:12:10 EST
