Loved it I could see the score board with out my glasses on. I made us all Chili, cornbread, crab dip, onion dip and guacomole. I was pround of myself, I had some of everything but not a lot of any one thing, well the... Mon, 4 Feb 2013 14:38:29 EST Wooo HOOO Ok so I just got back on to Sparkpeople two days ago and at that point I weighted 191. I have actually lost 6 pounds since the beginning of January however. I am pretty happy about that. <BR> Just trying to eat right and actually enjoying the salads and soups and just in general good food. I am actually eating more now than I was before so that is kinda fun. Fri, 1 Feb 2013 17:28:09 EST January 31, 2013 Well after a very hectic and stressfull fall and well thru December, I have gained weight but am now back on track. I hit fabulous 50 at the beginning of the month, however it wasn't the happy occasion I thought it would be. <BR> You see my Dad had been sick since well last January, getting better then getting sick again. About October it became a real roller coaster ride, ending in his Death on Decemember 5, 2012. <BR> I was lucky enough to have spend the last 5 days of of his life with ... Thu, 31 Jan 2013 12:27:58 EST September 6, 2012 Time to get back on track. Haven't tracked any food or exercise for the last several days. I was supper busy over the Labor Day weekend though. Did major fall cleaning, re arranged my living room to accomodate my new to me couch. Didn't go to far out of bounds on the diet, but would have thought all the activity over the weekend I would have at least lost some weight, nope stayed right where I was, so at least that is good! <BR> Got in a good walk thru town this morning to start my day ... Thu, 6 Sep 2012 11:46:40 EST August 30, 2012 What a fantasitc morning walk. I have been walking around the track at the local college in the mornings because it is so close to my work, and it is soooooooooo boring. So today I walked thru town. It was a great walk, 1.53 miles and the air is so crisp and I feel fall creeping in. Not quite ready for fall, want my tomatoes to ripen and know that we could get hot weather again before fall gets here but love the morning walk thru town. <BR> I think I am getting addicted to walking. :) <BR... Fri, 31 Aug 2012 11:30:47 EST August 28, 2012 We were in Reno all day with Dr appointments for Rusty. I forgot to take my step meter, big mistake since we have a lot of time between appts so walked a few stores browsing. So although I got extra exerise don't know how much to take. Ah well the important things is that i got exerise :) Wed, 29 Aug 2012 12:11:49 EST August 27, 2012 Satruday I didn't keep track of my walking, however we went to Chico grocery shopping and I know I put on some miles there. Yesterday had a half mile walk from the kids house to mine, I forgot my camera so went home to get it. We picked up Cooper Sat evening on our way home from Chico at his other Gp's house and took him home for the night and all day yesterday, <em>30</em> His folks wanted a date night and then we kept him yesterday so they could get things ready for his bday party. I ... Mon, 27 Aug 2012 16:21:47 EST August 24, 2012 Had a great night last night with our Grandson. Grandpa read to him and Cooper was full of energy. I took him to see the "GGs" (my parents). they were thrilled to see him and they had a lot of fun playing with him. He also made their day as he gave them both great big hugs goodbye. I didn't get to walk much yesterday, only .41 of a mile, but hey it was something. Got to talk to my son for a few minutes. He should be able to come home either tonight or tomorrow. Glad he is being release... Fri, 24 Aug 2012 14:45:29 EST August 23 We had our grandson Cooper over last night. I got such a kick out of watching Rusty read to him and Cooper just talked and talked. Of course we could only understand every 3rd word. But it was great fun. <BR> I didn't eat very well yesterday, my boss's wife brought me a frozen yogurt, boy was that tasty. For dinner we had pizza but I only had 3 small pieces. Then a very small bowl, 1/4-1/2 cup of ice cream with a bit more than one serving of Marie Calendar's apple pie. Wow. Ah well I... Thu, 23 Aug 2012 12:26:32 EST August 22, 2012 Wow what a day yesterday was. I walked 5.77 miles and am super excited about that. With the smoke we have been having from the Chips fire, I am excited that the air has cleared enough to walk again. I got in 1.19 miles this morning before work and plan to walk at lunch if I don't go grocery shopping. Tonight I pick up Cooper again and we have him until his mom gets home from work at midnight. Will miss walking with Sarah tonight. <BR> Wed, 22 Aug 2012 12:35:59 EST Tuesday August 21 I got to walk last night with my DIL and grandson, we went 1.49 miles. Not to shabby. I fixed us all a taco dinner before the walk. My son Roland is on day nine of a 14 day fire fighting assignment for the Chips fire. so we had Sarah and Cooper for Dinner. <BR> The smoke here is much better today, so I walked 1.5 miles this morning before work. Feels good to get back into it. I keep looking on line at all these cute clothes and that keeps me motivated to slim down. Tue, 21 Aug 2012 13:03:04 EST Smoke Smoke Smoke Well it was a pretty tough week last week. All the nasty smoke from the forest fire was hanging in close. I ended up with bronchitis and a sinus infection so I couldn't walk. The good news is that I haven't gained any weight, haven't lost any but haven't gained any. Mon, 20 Aug 2012 17:22:40 EST
