It was a long drive. My husband didn't want to get here too early so we left late Friday morning. Because we got out late, we ran into heavy traffic in Phoenix, Houston, and Webster. We won't make that mistake again. We already went to the meet and greet night. It was good seeing all the family. We left about 2 hours early. My husband was tired. He is sleeping and I'm trying to catch up with my sparking. We both ate way too much over the last couple of days. I'm going to try to re... Sat, 24 Jun 2017 00:43:33 EST On the Road http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6378398 We are on our way to Webster Texas. We got out around 10:45 am and we will be driving for 23 hours. Im going to miss not being able to walk today. But I'm happy to be getting away for a couple of days. The scale is still messing with me. I'm still goilng up and I got a feeling, it will be really up when we get back. <BR> <BR> Current Weight: 217.4 Thu, 22 Jun 2017 15:23:25 EST I'm Still Going Up And Down http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6377083 Last week I made it to 213.8 lbs. I just needed 1.2 pounds to make it 130 pounds lost. Then the weekend happened. We were off work on Friday so we went to see my husband's sister. She is in a rehab facility until they can get her on her feet again. It is only an hour and 10 minutes away. But we left at around noon time which turned it into a 2 1/2 hour drive. To make matters worse, I had to drive. My husband started out driving. And he was cursing the traffic, the cars, and the fact t... Mon, 19 Jun 2017 13:52:30 EST Back On Track! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6374147 Last Monday, I got up to 223.6 lbs. My husband was at 227. I know I was experiencing temporary weight gain because it came on real quick. We were eating on the go and we attended a wedding and a couple of birthday parties. My husband decided on Monday that we were going to ramp up our exercise because we will be going to his family reunion this month. So every day after work, we walked 3.6 miles and at the end of each walk we would race back to the house, except for Friday, we went bowli... Mon, 12 Jun 2017 11:17:10 EST Another Busy Weekend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6365188 My husband and I were off on Friday. I had to go get my annual mammogram that morning. Then when I came back I took a 2 mile walk by myself because I was upset with my husband. Having his daughter living with us is not easy. Most of our arguments are because of something she did or just because she is there. I was mad at him the day before because he left the house without saying anything. We had a disagreement, something to do with his daughter and he just left. What really irritated ... Mon, 22 May 2017 12:54:53 EST Weight Loss Struggle http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6357549 I have been walking every day, tracking my food, and drinking water with every meal. For some reason my weight hasn't budged. I keep gaining and losing the same 2 to 3 pounds. My calorie range has been just under 2000. This week I have decided to take it down a little further. My husband seems to think I'm eating too little already. I'm pretty sure it's not my calorie count as much as it's what I'm eating. I don't eat vegetables and I'm really not big on meat either. I eat cashews, pi... Thu, 4 May 2017 09:59:11 EST It's Been A Busy Week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6352926 I have been really busy for the last week. Last Sunday my father fell down the stairs at his house. I wasn't told about it until Monday, just as I was leaving work. Because he lives over an hour away from me, almost 3 hours, with rush time traffic, my husband and I took a couple of hours off work on Tuesday to go see him at the hospital. He had 3 broken ribs, and a whole in the back of his head. He also has a pace maker which was probably the reason he fell. He was supposed to have tha... Mon, 24 Apr 2017 16:36:41 EST Another Pound Gone http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6347950 After losing a pound last week, I went up on the scale again. We were eating on the go on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. So after I reported I was down, I went right back up almost two pounds. I was finally able to work them off and this morning I was down another pound. One pound a week is not what I signed up for but I will take it. I work tomorrow and Saturday we have a photo shoot in the morning and the evening so I'm not worried about going up on the scale this weekend. Hopefully,... Thu, 13 Apr 2017 10:48:55 EST Good News http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6344902 Today the scale finally moved significantly enough where I can put it in a blog. I have been blogging once a week on Mondays an I skipped two Mondays because I had nothing to report. Well I did have something to report but it wasn't good. I may have messed it up today though. We had a very busy day and had to leave home pretty early. So we got breakfast on the go, from Mc Donald's. I had the sausage biscuit and a hash brown. We had a meeting at a lawyers office that was almost an hour ... Fri, 7 Apr 2017 00:10:34 EST Slowly But Surely http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6335726 I went down a little again on the scale this week. I was talking to my brother in law over the weekend and I was telling him how hard it has become for me to lose weight. He said I needed to change my eating habit, again. I changed it already but now that I'm closer to my goal, I need to cut out the carbs and eat more protein and vegetables. Well, that's not going to happen! <em>246</em> He also said I needed to do some strength training. I told him I was afraid that if I did the stre... Mon, 20 Mar 2017 10:12:35 EST Still Moving In The Right Direction http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6332348 My husband and I had our blood pressures checked this past Friday and his came down. This time it was 129/86. He was relieved. I think it was up last time because of all the high sodium food he had in the days before. Mine was 114/68. We are both still exercising and watching what we eat. The scale is only moving a little bit, but at least it's moving. <em>246</em> But we are both noticing that our clothes fit much better, some are looser. I really want to get below 200 pounds by the... Mon, 13 Mar 2017 12:04:42 EST Scale Didn't Cooperate this Week! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6328854 I didn't lose any weight this week. The scale actually went up a pound. But I'm not complaining. My clothes are actually loose fitting again. I had went up on the scale last month and I was starting to feel like I was stuffed in my clothes. I told my husband I should pull out my pants that are one size bigger and start wearing them again. He vetoed that idea. He said I wouldn't be motivated to keep going if I did that. I'm glad I didn't. My clothes are fitting nice and the pair of je... Mon, 6 Mar 2017 17:09:25 EST Still On Track http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6322271 We had our blood pressures checked on Friday. Mine was 112/62. My husband's was a little high for his age group. We know why it was high. He ate a lot of high sodium foods the day before. They had a black history lunch at his job. But I got confirmation that I was doing great with my sodium intake. We have to go back in two weeks to get them checked again. Also I am doing good with my weight loss. I haven't lost as much as I would have liked, but I have went down a pound this week an... Mon, 27 Feb 2017 10:48:46 EST Back On Track! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6319066 I have been doing pretty good in the last week. I always knew that my Achilles heel is sodium but I had a hard time lowering the sodium in my diet. This week I tried something new. I replaced one of my meals with gelatin and fruit and it worked. Also when I feel like snacking I just get a couple spoons of gelatin and I'm done. The gelatin does have sugar and sodium but not as much as the other foods I have been eating. Also my husband and I went to the Outback for lunch on Saturday. I ... Mon, 20 Feb 2017 22:10:44 EST Time To Get Back On Track! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6307925 This weekend was filled with buffets and fast food. We went to Las Vegas to visit the daughter and grand child. We had a very nice time. Friday night we went to the Boulder station Buffet. I ate everything I wasn't supposed to eat, barbecue ribs, fried chicken. pizza, meatballs, french fries, and desserts. I even went back for a second plate. The good news is my eyes wanted more than my stomach. I couldn't eat that second plate. And all of the desserts weren't very fresh. I only ate ... Mon, 30 Jan 2017 13:58:02 EST I'm Still Pushing! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6302842 Today my husband and I drove to the snow. We couldn't go all the way up the mountain because we didn't have chains. We pulled off on the side of the road to take pictures and play in the snow. There were a lot of cars on each side of the highway until the highway patrol came and asked everyone to move their cars. We took a couple of quick pictures and then went further down the road and pulled over again. This time there wasn't that many cars pulled over and the highway patrol passed us ... Sun, 22 Jan 2017 00:11:22 EST Happy New Year! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6289180 <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/7857f32d-cbc0-4618-b688-e0d76cb054b0.jpg"> <BR> Happy New Year! Mon, 2 Jan 2017 01:31:54 EST Merry Christmas http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6285376 We spent the day with my brother and his family. I'm up on the scale but I'm not going to worry about it right now. Tomorrow we are off to Arizona to visit my husband's Aunt and sons. His sister, brother in law, and a cousin and her husband are supposed to meet us there. <BR> <BR> I hope everyone had a great day with family and friends. <BR> <BR> Merry Christmas! Mon, 26 Dec 2016 01:31:47 EST Thanksgiving Day Weekend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6273604 On Thanksgiving, my family had a potluck. I declined the invitation because my husband wanted to have Thanksgiving with his daughters, and grand daughters. None of them came. I cooked a turkey Wednesday night. My husband was tired so he went to bed while I waited for the turkey to cook. Then Thursday morning, I put a ham in the oven, it was already cooked, it just needed warming. I baked some sweet potatoes, cooked some cabbage and put some asparagus in the oven. We had invited my hus... Tue, 29 Nov 2016 01:02:40 EST I'm So Excited! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6269494 This week I lost 3.2 pounds. I worked hard for it. I got a total of 134,904 steps for the last 7 days. I walked every day at lunch, except yesterday because it was my off day. And I came home every day and walked and jogged on the treadmill with my husband. I also ate basically the same meals every day. It was easy because I allowed myself some chips and chocolate, and various nuts. I have .6 pounds until I can officially claim a 130 pound lost. I'm behind in my weight loss goals, but it... Sat, 19 Nov 2016 18:26:43 EST I Made It! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6268658 I finally made it down to my pre-vacation, pre-weekend get away's, weight. I'm not sure how long it's been since I was at this weight. I could go look it up, because I have kept track, but it would probably be depressing. My husband and I changed our walking routine when the time changed. It's too dark to walk outside by the time we get home from work, so now we walk on our treadmills. We are doing the HIIT program, where you jog or run at a fast speed and then walk or jog at your recov... Thu, 17 Nov 2016 21:43:59 EST Down Another Pound http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6265928 This week was tough. My weight didn't want to budge. I've been exercising every day, except for today. I only walked one mile today. I got a total of 130,502 steps for the week. Something strange happened this week. A couple of my co-workers commented on my weight loss. One of them, I see almost on a daily basis. He said "you are losing weight." I said you just noticed that? The guy standing with him said "I'm with her, you just noticed that?" He said you look great. I said thanks.... Sat, 12 Nov 2016 22:47:59 EST No Loss This Week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6262550 It's been a rough week. My weight has been fluctuating all week long. The good news is I didn't gain any weight. I have kept up my walking all week. I got 142,486 steps for the last 7 days. I think I got enough exercise but had too much sodium in my diet. It's really strange though because my clothes are fitting much better. I have some blouses I could put on but wouldn't dare wear them out because they were too tight. They are a perfect fit now. I have some size 16 jeans that I couldn... Sat, 5 Nov 2016 23:50:04 EST A Little Disappointed But Still Making Progress! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6259083 This week I was a little tired. I walked every day except Sunday. I managed to get 121,461 steps for the week. My weight loss is a little slow. I'm thinking it had something to do with my sluggishness. Some days that I walked I was really tired and dragging. Also I had a few slip ups with my diet. My husband bought fried chicken and even though I only had two pieces a day, I had it for four days this week. Fried chicken is not my friend. I am still making progress. I'm down 1.6 poun... Sun, 30 Oct 2016 00:20:04 EST I'm Still On Track http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6255637 This week was a repeat of last week. I've been walking every day, sometimes up to three times a day. I got 148,669 steps for the week. I've been counting my calories. I can't say I haven't eaten any junk food but I have been measuring what I eat. I was hoping to drop 3 more pounds this week. I fell one pound short. It's okay though, because any amount of weight loss is good. Today my husband and I walked 2.6 miles and then went to the movies. We saw Boo! A Madea's Halloween. If you ... Sat, 22 Oct 2016 23:48:03 EST I'm Back On Track http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6252067 This past week I have been very careful with my diet. I walked every day. I actually got 139,737 steps for the week. It paid off this morning. I'm finally on my way back down. I got 7 pounds to go before I get to my lowest weight this year. The day started off kind of bad. We got out early to go take pictures of the sunrise. We bought donuts on the way. And for lunch we ate fried fish and french fries. I plan on eating a very light dinner tonight. We got a lot of walking in because... Sat, 15 Oct 2016 19:14:03 EST I'm Still Here http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6250154 I haven't been blogging lately, but I'm still walking. Not doing to well with my diet, but I'm still trying to get it right. My husband and I have both gone up on the scale but not so much as to be discouraged. I was thinking of changing my ticker but my weight keeps going up and coming back down and I hate being congratulated for losing weight that I shouldn't have gained in the first place, so I'm not going to change it now. <BR> <BR> Fitbit: 9.96 miles 24,252 steps <BR> Current Wei... Tue, 11 Oct 2016 22:52:48 EST A Busy Weekend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6242177 My stepdaughter and the grand baby arrived Thursday night. The grand will be two on October 8th and he is already talking. He was so excited to be here that he went from room to room trying to get into something. We had to keep telling him no. He understands but he likes to test you anyway. <em>246</em> <BR> We went to the San Diego Zoo on Friday. The plan was to get up early, around 5:30, go get breakfast, get gas, and hit the road. We wanted to be at the zoo when it opened, which ... Mon, 26 Sep 2016 14:21:55 EST Back To Reality! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6238807 We made it home from San Francisco. I haven't stepped on the scale but I'm pretty sure I gained weight. It was a fun trip filled with lots of walking and photography. We got up at 4 am and was on the road by 5 am. Two hours in we stopped at a view point so my husband can take more pictures. My husband met a guy there, who told him the sun was about to rise. Of course we stayed there until it rose so my husband could take more pictures. When we were two hours from home, we stopped to ge... Mon, 19 Sep 2016 23:41:10 EST A Busy Morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6238214 This morning we got up at 6 am. I set the alarm clock for 7 am but the clock was off by an hour. We showered and went to breakfast at IHOP. After breakfast we went to Battery East. It's a view point by the Golden Gate Bridge. We were over there for about 3 hours. There were a number of trails that we walked. We took a lot of pictures. After we left there we went to Battery Spencer. It's another overlook that looks over the Golden Gate Bridge. After we left there we went to see the p... Sun, 18 Sep 2016 23:52:53 EST A Busy Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6237669 This morning we drove into San Francisco, from South San Francisco to buy all day bus passes. When we got back to our hotel we walked a mile to the Caltrain Station. We rode the train into San Francisco and then went on one of the boat tours. It was supposed to be a 60 minute tour but I think we were on the water for about 30 minutes. After the boat tour we took the cable car to China Town. We actually went past China Town. By this time it was 2 pm and we were both hungry. We only had ... Sun, 18 Sep 2016 00:53:11 EST A Long Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6237179 My husband and I got up at 4 am this morning and headed for San Francisco. We went to my favorite donut shop, then went to get my husband's favorite coffee, then gas and hit the freeway by 5:00 am. We were in San Francisco by 11 am. We did a lot of sight seeing. We went to Hawk hill, a couple of Vista Points, E-trails, and Treasure Island. Then we checked into out hotel and changed our pants. We came down in short pants, and then went to dinner at Chili's. After dinner we went to Twin P... Sat, 17 Sep 2016 01:33:12 EST Over 22,000 Steps Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6229784 Today my husband and I got up at 6 am. We went to get gas, and got a couple of donuts and hit the road. My husband saw several places in San Diego that he wanted to go take pictures of. We went to Mt Soledad War Memorial, to San Diego Skyline at Coronado, to Petco Park, to Tuna Harbor, and the Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge. We also stopped at a few view points along the way. We didn't get home until almost 9 pm. We didn't eat very healthy. We had lunch at KFC and dinner at Mc Donald's...

I walked .6 miles to work from the bus stop. At lunch time I walked 2.1 miles. After work I walked half a mile to the bus stop. And when I got home I walked 2.8 miles with my husband. I didn't gain too much weight on my weekend getaway. I'm thinking it's because we kept moving from early morning to night. I only went up 1.4 pounds. I really need to get busy with my weight loss because we will be going on another weekend... Wed, 31 Aug 2016 00:03:56 EST Our Canyon Trips http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6226252 Yesterday we drove to Bryce Canyon from Las Vegas. We took my step daughter, her little sister and the grand baby. It is normally a 3.5 hour drive. But when you are riding with the photographer, it can take up to 5 hours. We had to stop at every scenic spot on the way. And believe me when I say, there were several. We made it. Bryce Canyon is nothing like the Grand Canyon. They have a trail where you can walk down in the canyon. My husband and I walked down a bit, but it started rain... Mon, 29 Aug 2016 02:14:07 EST Road Trip To Vegas http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6225195 Today we drove to Las Vegas to visit my husband's daughter and grand baby. But first we had to go get our blood pressures checked. My husband's daughter left him a message to come in and I'm supposed to get my checked every two weeks. We got there at 8:15 and the PACE didn't open until 8:30. They didn't call the first patient until 8:40. Then when he left out 15 minutes with by. My husband went to the information booth to see how to file a complaint. We had been there before and they t... Sat, 27 Aug 2016 02:56:51 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6224642 Today I did not make it out for my lunch time walk. I had to wait for a shipment at work. By the time the delivery guy showed up it was already too hot outside and a little late for me to walk. I walked in place at my desk and I walked around the office delivering supplies. I don;t usually make deliveries, I just wanted to get some steps in. Then a little later in the day I needed to get a package to UPS, but the guy had left already. So I walked to a UPS location which was a little ove... Fri, 26 Aug 2016 01:44:44 EST Three Walks Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6224044 Today I walked 3.1 miles at lunch time. 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 also did some walking in place after dinner tonight. I didn't go down on the scale this morning but i also didn't go up. I'm happy about that. My weight has been creeping up little by little on a daily basis. I also did okay with my eating. Of course there is room for improvement. Hopefully I will get it right tomorrow. <BR> <BR> Fitbit: 9... Wed, 24 Aug 2016 23:11:53 EST Over 20,000 Steps http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6223454 Today I walked 3.1 miles at lunch time. After work I walked half a mile to the bus stop. And when I got home I walked 3.6 miles with my husband. I did pretty good with my diet today. That is... until I got home. I must be a nervous eater. Hopefully I didn't do too much damage. <BR> <BR> Fitbit: 8.97 miles 21,297 steps <BR> Weight: 221 Wed, 24 Aug 2016 00:18:14 EST Getting Back On Track http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6222870 For the last week I have been off track. I was still exercising but not enough and I was eating all the wrong foods. Today I decided that it was time to get back on track. So I walked 3 miles at lunch time. I walked half a mile to the bus stop after work and when I got home I walked 3.6 miles with my husband. I was also very careful with what I ate. That is until I got the munchies an hour ago. But I came to my senses before I did too much damage. I am ready to lose another 20 pounds.... Tue, 23 Aug 2016 00:55:48 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6217585 The party was a success. Everyone who said they were coming didn't come but it still turned out nice. I got up early this morning and made my cornbread muffins. My husband said we would walk but he needed a few minutes. So I cooked my sausage while he was still in bed. Then when my husband got up he decided we didn't have enough time to walk so I made our breakfast. After we ate I cooked my ground beef. So all I had to do at my mom's house was cook the pasta and heat the sauce with th... Sun, 14 Aug 2016 02:31:14 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6217080 Today was another busy day. We walked 2.6 miles this morning, this time with the cameras. My husband wanted to take pictures. Then we ate breakfast and went to see his brother in the hospital. His brother is doing fine. We had to park down the street though because it was $18 to park in the parking structure. I told my husband I would rather walk then give them $18 for a couple of hours of parking. After the visit we went to the same overlook we went to yesterday. But my husband said ... Sat, 13 Aug 2016 02:47:10 EST Wednesday & Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6216503 Yesterday I went for my echocardiagram. The doctor says there is nothing wrong with my heart. Afterwards, we were supposed to go to breakfast. My husband asked if I needed to eat right away. I said no. He said he wanted to check out this overlook and it would only take 15 minutes. That was around 8:45 am. We ended up driving to a place called white beach near Palos Verde. I had never been there before. We had to walk down to the beach. We could have driven but we had to pay to park. ...
