Then we ate breakfast. We were invited to my husband's cousin's house and I was asked to bring some cornbread muffins. I was getting ready to do the muffins when my husband decided he wanted to go to Walmart. He needed some attachments for his clippers. We went over there and I found a band for my wrist for 88 cents. I wore it all day. My husband bought a new clipper set. By the time we got back from Walmart it was almost 1 pm. We were supposed to be...

We invited our children, my mom, my husband's sister and brother over to eat. We told them all we would start around 1 pm. This morning my husband had to go to his Aunt's house to look at her computer. It was not coming on. So I fixed breakfast for us and after we ate, my husband left. I decided not to go because we had a lot of work to do. While my husband was gone, I cleaned the bathrooms, including the toilets, vacuumed all the floors, and... Sat, 4 Jul 2015 00:38:33 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5954707 Today was our day off from work. We walked 2 miles this morning then came home and mowed the lawn. It took a little longer because I had to mow in the back yard too. My husband edged and trimmed the trees. Then we showered and went to a couple of stores. My hand still hurts a little from my fall, but I can use it. <BR> Fitbit - 5.38 miles. 12,309 steps <BR> Weight: 242.2 Thu, 2 Jul 2015 23:59:08 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5954184 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 3.1 miles. I got another painful reminder. I don't pick my feet up high enough when I walk. I had just ran across the street and I had slowed down a little to catch my breath. Then I decided to pick up the pace and just as I started walking faster, I hit the ground. It felt like it was slow motion. At one point I was thinking I'm going to avoid the fall, and then I was thinking hurry up and fall already. When I hit the ground the only pain I felt w... Wed, 1 Jul 2015 23:04:56 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5953621 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. I also went out an hour earlier trying to beat the heat. It was still hot! I had to do a little stretching when I came back. I used to stretch my legs all the time after a walk but I had gotten out of the habit. This morning I received a painful reminder that I need to stretch after exercising. Yesterday I walked a total of 9 miles. My husband walked 3.6 miles with me. When we got home he was talking about his legs being tired and hurti... Tue, 30 Jun 2015 23:32:59 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5953048 I made it out for my lunch time walk. It was so hot by the time I went out to walk, that I decided to cut it short. But I ended up walking 3.1 miles anyway. I mapped my route on google maps and even though I skipped a few blocks, it was still a long walk. After work, I walked half a mile to the bus stop and when I got home I walked 3.6 miles with my husband.

It was a nice service. After service, my husband and I treated my step daughter's family to brunch at the Boulder station Buffet. Then we said good bye and came back to our hotel. It's been nice here visiting with the grand baby but it has been hell finding a parking space. They have the EDC thing going on and our hotel is near the staging area where people are taking the bus to get there. There are people walking around half nak...

My fitbit had already had a mile on it before I went. I have started going to people's desk and talk to them instead of emailing or calling on the phone so I can get more steps in.

She graduated from Seminary School with an Associate Of Arts degree in Biblical Studies. It was 4 hours long. And in the middle of the graduation they had a fund raiser. After the graduation my cousin and her family went out to dinner. We didn't go because my husband needed to go the store to put money on his daughter's card. Then we went to a birthday party for my husband's cousin's, sister. It was in a backyard ...

I walked a little further today because my husband had indicated yesterday he wanted a rest day. So I needed to get my miles in before I got home. After work, I walked .5 miles to the bus stop. When I got home, I got a nice surprise. My husband wanted to ride our bikes. We rode about 4.5 miles. I have an odometer on my bike but I didn't get it working until we had already rode a ways.

After work I walked half a mile to the bus stop and when I got home I walked 2.6 miles with my husband. I had been losing between .6 pounds and 1.2 pounds everyday for the last week. This morning I weighed the same as yesterday. It was a little disappointing and I wanted to just eat whatever. But I had a little conversation with myself and decided that it is not going to happen every day. I decided to stick with the program. I even lowered my cal...

Last week, Wednesday, I weighed 250.6 pounds. I realize that some of that was temporary weight gain. but I am still excited that I was able to lose it. I was also weighing 2 pounds more than my husband. This week the tables have turned. He now weighs 1 pound more than I do. We are now in a competition to see who can lose the most weight by the end of the month. Hopefully that will keep me on track. <BR> <BR> Today I walked 2.3 miles at lunch time. I wa...

After church we stopped by the store to get some pork chops to put on the grill. Then we watched the basketball game. After the game, my husband got on his computer while I had to wash the dishes, put up the food, and finish washing clothes. When I took my husband his shirts, because he wanted to iron them, I told him it was a good thing I didn't have to iron his clothes. It would be a little too much. <BR> Fitbit - 5...

I wasn't surprise though. I gained a little weight while on vacation but I can't blame it all on my vacation. I had been gaining weight since the end of January. I keep gaining, then lose a couple, then gain some more. I have to break this vicious cycle if I am ever going to reach my goal weight. I got a really good start yesterday.

I thought I wasn't going to be able to go back to sleep because we had to travel through the mountains. But I feel asleep. My husband woke me up when we reached a spot called Vista Point so I could take some pictures. It was really cold. At 8 am we stopped for breakfast and then I took over driving.

We went to breakfast across the street from where we are staying. After breakfast we drove around the city. We were actually looking for Walmart, which we found.

I wanted to take one of the tour boats that are much bigger than this Rocket Boat. The Rocket Boat goes at about a 55 mile speed. The captain makes sharp turns, sudden stops, makes it bounce up and down, and makes it spins in circles for about 30 minutes. It was great. I laughed all the way through it. My husband started filling sick after about 15 minutes. After we got off the boat, we walked to Denny's rest...

I didn't know where they were walking to, so I didn't have a chance to map the route. One of the girls had Map My Walk on her cell phone. It said we walked 2.32 miles in 38 minutes. I didn't believe it so I mapped it on google maps, and it said it was about 1.8 miles. Anyway I went out again at lunch time and I wanted to walk the same route using my fitbit, but I left too late. I didn't leave until 1:24 and we had a meeting at 2:00. So I...

I guess we were really tired from yesterday's family gathering. We woke up at 9:30 am. We usually walk before we go to church which starts at 11:30 am. We weren't able to do our walk this morning, not if we wanted to eat before we go to church. I made breakfast this morning and we didn't get up from the table until 10:45.
