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...

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...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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...

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. ...

My husband and I became friends on fitbit and I didn't want him to know how much I walk at work and I'm not going to walk without wearing my fitbit. One of my cousin's husband wanted to be friends on fitbit because he was inspired by our weight loss. I told my husband he wanted to be friends and my husband said okay. But I knew that meant that I had to be friends with my husband also. Sure enough, my husband text me this morning and asked me when I was ... Tue, 9 Aug 2016 00:10:51 EST Sunday - Rest Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6214048 We decided to make today a rest day. We got up late ate breakfast and went to church. After church we went and bought some pop up tents. They didn't have 10 x 10 so we got 8 x 10. We put one up and decided it was big enough. Then we went to one of the cousin's house to take her some reunion pictures. We sat and talk with her for awhile. She will be 87 years old this year. We invited her to my mom's birthday party. Then we went by my mom's to water her grass. And we went to my husban...

After breakfast, we went bowling. Then we went to the bakery to order my mom's cake. Last time I had a party for her we bought half a sheet cake. That cake went quick so this time I ordered a whole sheet. Then we went to the place where we rented a tent from. They were closed. We are thinking about buying a couple of pop up tents. I think it cost over a hundred dollars to rent the 10 x 20 tent so we may just buy t...

While we were out there my husband decided to fix our side gate. He said it would only take 15 minutes. It turned out to be an all day job. While he was going pack and forth to buy things for the gate, my grandson edged the lawn while I mowed it. The rest of the day was spent sitting around watching TV. Then my grandson wanted to go to my mom's house to look through his things. While we were there, I watered the grass and her plant...

It was a long pier with nothing happening but fishing. One guy had water in this huge container and he put the fish in there. You can hear them flapping around.
