I also walked a little over half a mile to the bus stop after work. We didn't walk when we got home. My grandson came over for a visit. We will be tackling the hill in the morning. Fri, 29 Aug 2014 23:58:01 EST Off Work Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5769040 This morning my husband and I walked 3.6 miles. Then we had breakfast and went to my husband's friend home going service. It started at 11:30 am. The repast was right after at the church. We didn't get home until almost 4 pm. My husband was so tired he took a 2 1/2 hour nap. We were able to socialize with some of his retired bus driver friends. We are supposed to be having a domino party to invite his co-workers over in a couple of weeks. My husband says he will also invite the friend... Thu, 28 Aug 2014 23:06:54 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5768436 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. On our way home from work, my husband and I went to the funeral home. We stayed there for about 30 minutes. My husband is a retired bus operator and he was hoping to see some of his friends there. We will see them tomorrow, I'm sure. We stopped by his aunt and cousin's house to drop off some thank you notes. By the time we got home my husband didn't feel like walking. He says we will walk in the morning before we go to the funeral. Thu, 28 Aug 2014 00:21:32 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5767736 Back at work today. My husband and I drove his daughter back to Las Vegas on Sunday. We didn't leave until after 3 pm because the other daughter wanted to spend some time with her sister. So we went to the park by his other daughter's apartment and ate pizza at a picnic table. We stayed longer than we intended. We didn't get to Vegas until 8 pm. We dropped my husband's daughter off and then we checked into our hotel and walked down to the Fremont hotel and ate a buffet dinner. Then we ... Tue, 26 Aug 2014 23:49:59 EST Friday & Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5765805 Friday, my husband and I called in sick. My husband had pain in his back. He has had it for awhile but it was really bad yesterday morning. We got up at our usual time, got dress and my husband kept wincing while he was getting ready to pull out of the driveway. I told him he should just call in and go to the doctor. So he used sick time and I used family illness. We went to the doctor and the doctor said he had muscle strain that was probably from all the leg lifts he has been doing. ... Sun, 24 Aug 2014 01:56:34 EST Friday & Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5765804 Friday, my husband and I called in sick.

Sun, 24 Aug 2014 01:56:30 EST Wednesday & Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5764402 I made it out for my lunch time walk, today and yesterday, 2.3 miles. We didn't walk after work yesterday because my mom was baby sitting my grand babies and I wanted to go see them. I told my husband that I was going to my mom's house after we walked and ate dinner. He said why not skip the walk and after we eat, we can both go over there, that way you will have more time. We did some shopping for the baby shower so we got home a little late. I'm not sure what made him decide to go with... Thu, 21 Aug 2014 17:03:41 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5763579 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. I walked .5 miles to the bus stop after work and when I got home, my husband and I walked 2 miles. I'm still struggling with my food choices when I get home from work. I'm not going down on the scale but I'm not going up either. I'm not ready to give up. I can do this! <em>104</em> Wed, 20 Aug 2014 12:12:00 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5762508 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. After work my husband and I went to order the cake and to a party store for streamers and balloons for the baby shower this Saturday. When we got home we walked 2 miles and after our walk my husband grilled some steaks on the outdoor grill. I don't eat steaks by the way. After dinner we cleaned the grill. It's not easy. I did well with my eating while I was at work but when I came home I ran into trouble. Hopefully I didn't mess up too b... Mon, 18 Aug 2014 22:56:37 EST My Weekend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5761813 Yesterday morning my husband and I mowed the lawn. Afterwards we got the grill out. My husband invited his sister and her husband, his brother, and my mother over to eat. His sister invited one of their nephews. I was a little worried because I didn't know how many people his sister invited over. We only took out two slabs of ribs and we had about 8 sausage links. When it was close to the time they were supposed to come my husband told me he also invited one of his cousin's and her husba... Mon, 18 Aug 2014 00:55:00 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5760636 Today I walked 2.3 miles at lunch time. I also walked after work to the bus stop. When I got home I walked with my husband, 3.6 miles. I thought we were just going to walk 2 miles because he has been tired all this week. He said it wouldn't be fair to me not to walk all the way since he walked 2 miles yesterday and I hadn't walked in 3 days. I still haven't told him I have been walking at work. My fitbit says I walked 7.56 miles and 17.180 steps. Now I'm tired! <em>198</em> Sat, 16 Aug 2014 01:02:53 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5759790 I went out for my lunch time walk, 3.6 miles. My husband and I didn't walk last night. For some reason he was really drained and he couldn't figure out why. I know why. He has been under a lot of stress lately. He says he isn't. But when your children call you on a nightly basis just to talk about how bad their situations are and then his sister called him to tell him about his brother having surgery and wanted him to give her gas money to come back down here, you can't help but feel a... Thu, 14 Aug 2014 18:15:05 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5759104 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 3.6 miles. I decided to walk a little longer today because I don't know if we will be able to walk tonight. We learned last night that my husband's brother was having surgery this morning. I didn't get the details but it has something to do with a stint and clogged arteries. We will probably go by the hospital after work and it is also my mom's birthday. So we will probably go by her house as well. Wed, 13 Aug 2014 17:40:44 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5758631 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. It's a good thing I went because my husband didn't want to walk when we got home. He said his legs were hurting. Mine are still a little sore too. But I'm glad I walked at lunch time. I was down . 9 on the scale this morning. Two more pounds to go to get to my pre-vacation weight. <em>224</em> Wed, 13 Aug 2014 00:13:19 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5757967 Today was our day off from work. We walked 3.6 miles this morning and then my husband and I went to the dentist. It was supposed to be just a routine check up but then the dentist wanted to do a deep cleaning. So my husband left me there. When he came back I could barely talk. My mouth was so numb I couldn't feel it. For a couple of hours, I looked like I had a stroke. Later we went to lunch at Chili's with my husband's sister. I still managed to stay within my calorie range. I ate a... Tue, 12 Aug 2014 01:20:28 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5757246 We did our 3.6 mile walk this morning. Then we went to church. After church we went to a party store to get supplies for a baby shower we are having for my husband's daughter that lives in Las Vegas. We are flying her in the morning of the shower and we will be driving her home the next day. We will stay over night and come back on a Monday. We spent over a hundred dollars and that was just on tableware, and a few decorations. After shopping we came home and started working on the back ... Mon, 11 Aug 2014 00:58:41 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5756673 We made it out for our walk, 3.6 miles. Then we went to one of my husband's relatives house to fix her computer. Afterwards we went shopping at a few stores and my husband saw a stronger rope for our jump ropes. He tried to fix the jump ropes but the rope was too thick. So he had to modify the ends on the rope handle. The modification didn't allow the rope to turn so it kept getting twisted when I tried to use it. We have to buy another rope. My husband says he is going to start jumpin... Sun, 10 Aug 2014 01:41:09 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5756088 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. It was really hot. I also walked with my husband after work, 2 miles. He went out to water the grass when we came back so I got out the jump rope again. Jumping rope is really hard on the knees. It's hard to believe this is something we enjoyed doing as children. But I'm going to try it a few times a week as long as I can. I am now down 6.8 pounds. Almost back to my pre-vacation weight. <em>224</em> Sat, 9 Aug 2014 01:24:16 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5755260 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.8 miles. It was hot out there in some spots and windy in other spots. We didn't walk yesterday after work. My husband's daughter came over with her boyfriend. My plan was to put my meat, pork chops, in the oven while we walk and then we would eat when we got back from our walk. Well, they came by as I was getting the meat ready for the oven. I tried to wait them out but when they saw there was going to be food they didn't budge. <em>246</em> So ... Thu, 7 Aug 2014 17:40:07 EST Back To Work http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5754580 My husband and I went back to work today. I was surprised I didn't have a lot of work waiting for me. I did get some disturbing news though. My direct supervisor is transferring to another department. It's probably because we are so short handed here. While I was gone, she did some of my work. One of my co-workers had taken three weeks right before I took my vacation and the supervisor also did her work. Plus she has her own workload and has to supervise 13 people. It's really going t... Wed, 6 Aug 2014 18:05:25 EST Not Much Exercise Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5754033 Today my husband wanted to get the car serviced. After we ate breakfast we went to the dealer. We were there for almost two hours. Then my husband had to go see the nurse so she can verify that he doesn't need any more wound treatments. Then we walked around Costco for a bit. My husband's sister and her husband went with us. When we got home they stuck around for a little bit. We were supposed to walk this evening but after my husband's sister left, he ate dinner and fell asleep on the... Wed, 6 Aug 2014 00:19:02 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5753350 Well, we are back at home. Sunday morning, we got up at 2 am California time and hit the road. We made it home at 1 am this morning. We slept for almost 6 hours and then had breakfast. The first thing on our list was mow the lawn. It had grew out some. <em>246</em> Then we got out some soap and water to clean the bugs off our car and then took it to the car wash. We also had to recycle our water bottles. We had many bags of bottles. Then a trip to the post office. I put our mail ... Tue, 5 Aug 2014 02:25:42 EST Friday & Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5751799 We jogged/walked on the treadmill then ate breakfast. We watched TV for a couple of hours and then we went to lunch at this chicken place, called Raising Cane. Then we walked around the mall. My husband was tired so we came in and watched more TV. I was actually bored so I walked around outside a bit. I watched some kids play in the pool. It wasn't hot enough for me to get in there. We went to the Family game night at around 7 pm. We saw a lot of family members we hadn't seen in a lon... Sat, 2 Aug 2014 18:19:24 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5750709 This morning we walked/jogged on the treadmill and ate the free breakfast at the hotel. We were going to go to this Safari place in Jacksonville but it rained, hard. Instead we picked up lunch at this barbecue place and took it out to my husband's cousin, who lives about 30 minutes from the hotel we are at. We stayed out there for a couple of hours and then came back to the hotel. We are now watching cable shows on the TV. I don't know why. We don't have cable at home. <em>246</em> Thu, 31 Jul 2014 23:00:14 EST Tuesday & Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5750048 We made it to Tyler, Texas yesterday. We got up early, took a two mile walk, ate breakfast at the hotel and then checked out. We went to downtown Houston on the way out because we wanted to go to the African American Museum. It was closed until the beginning of August. So we hit the highway. We got here at about 3:00 PM. We checked in our hotel and called some relatives to see if we could visit with them. We went down to Bullard Texas to see my husband's cousin and his wife. We were s... Thu, 31 Jul 2014 00:08:31 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5748643 This morning we did our two miles then ate the free breakfast at the hotel. Then we went to wash clothes at a laundromat. It took us awhile to get the clothes washed because we drove around first to see if we could find one other than the one we went to last time we washed. We didn't see one so we went to the one we used the last time. It cost six dollars to wash 4 loads of clothes and four dollars to dry them. Talk about being ripped off. After we washed my husband wanted fried fish. ... Tue, 29 Jul 2014 00:50:25 EST Saturday & Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5747882 The reunion was a success. My husband and I got up early Saturday morning and did our 2 mile walk and had breakfast at the hotel. The event at the park was supposed to start at 12 noon , so we started heading over there a few minutes before 12. When we got there a few of my cousins had the grills going. They brought this big grill from Louisiana and this guy who works the grill. He grew up with my cousins. They also had a grill from somebody who lives here in Texas. They had barbecue r... Mon, 28 Jul 2014 00:34:17 EST Thursday & Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5746725 Yesterday we took our morning walk, 2 miles. No sign of rain. It was like it never happened. <em>246</em> After breakfast we went downtown to look around. We have seen downtown Houston from a distance while on the interstate but we had never been down there. Then we picked up my grandson from one of my uncle's house and went to this famous mall, the galleria. Man, talk about a high end mall. They had all these high end stores, like Prada. I can't even name them because I have never b... Sat, 26 Jul 2014 01:33:02 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5745244 My husband and I walked two miles this morning. We left our hotel at about 7:30. We were about half a mile away when I felt a little mist. We keep walking. When we got a mile away, it was sprinkling. As we turned to head back to the hotel, the sprinkles came a little harder. I told my husband we were walking away from the rain and since we turned back we were walking into it. Sure enough before we got half way, the rain was coming down. I told my husband I wanted to start jogging so w... Wed, 23 Jul 2014 21:09:37 EST Monday & Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5744616 Yesterday we walked, ate breakfast and then drove to a few of my cousin's houses. We chatted for a while and then my husband and I drove to Bossier City to a couple of casino's. The first casino, we broke even. The next one, we left a couple of dollars. After we lost the money we were prepared to spend we called it a day and drove back. This morning we walked two miles and then ate breakfast. Then we checked out of our hotel in Natchitoches and drove to Houston. We had the same experie... Wed, 23 Jul 2014 00:58:10 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5743044 My husband and I got up at 7:15 am and took a 2 mile walk. Then we had the free waffle breakfast at the hotel. Then we went to the church service with the family. <BR> We have several Pastors and preachers in our family so we never go to anyone's church. We just have church at my Uncle's banquet hall. It was a good service. Afterwards my immediate family went to one of my Uncle and Aunt's house for lunch. They live in the back woods. We have a cousin that lives across from them and the... Sun, 20 Jul 2014 23:08:40 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5742452 This morning we were supposed to get up at 7 am and walk. Then go have the free breakfast in the hotel dining room. The alarm went off at 7 and I cut it off and went back to sleep. I woke up at 8:40. I must have been really tired. It's usually hard for me to fall asleep in hotel rooms. Anyway we had to go have breakfast first because it was over at 9:30 am. My husband said we were going to eat light. Only he didn't know they had waffles, eggs, sausage, and some kind of gravy. I didn'... Sun, 20 Jul 2014 00:55:05 EST Thursday & Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5741842 We left our house at 5 am Thursday morning. It was great timing. We got out of town with no traffic. We drove through Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas, without any congestion. We got into Louisiana at 6 am California time and was at our destination by 7 am. We drove straight through only stopping for gas. Check in time for our hotel room was at 2 pm. So we went to my grandma's house to wait until it was time to go to the hotel. <BR> My husband slept a bit while I watched TV. When we c... Sat, 19 Jul 2014 00:46:01 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5740436 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. We didn't walk when we got off work. My husband's knee was bothering him. We went to the mall and while my husband was in the heath store I walked the length of the mall. We are almost through packing. We have to go to bed early because we are getting up at 4 am to hit the road! I'm really looking forward to this trip. My weight hasn't went down much. I'm at 245.2. I'm going to continue to watch what I eat and exercise while on this tr... Wed, 16 Jul 2014 23:52:59 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5739742 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. I walked half a mile to the bus stop and when I got home, I walked 2.6 miles with my husband. We have one more day before we take off for our vacation. We still haven't finished packing. We were both too tired. But we have to get it together tomorrow night. Wed, 16 Jul 2014 00:43:52 EST Off Work Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5738937 Today was my husband and I day off from work. We both went to the doctor's office for a nurse visit. I had my blood pressure checked and he had to have his wound checked. Afterwards we went to the grocery store and we went to his job to give the t-shirts to one of his co-workers. She is going to put our names and the family name on the shirts for one of the reunions. When we came home we actually started packing. When it cooled down we took a 3.6 mile walk. I really didn't feel like wal... Mon, 14 Jul 2014 22:03:45 EST A Busy Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5738288 This morning we got up at 6 am and took a 2.6 mile walk. Then we came home and mowed the lawn. After we mowed the lawn my husband grilled some pork chops and we ate breakfast in the backyard under the tent. Then we went to the mall to get some t-shirts for the family reunion. We also walked down to the vitamin store. My husband didn't find what he wanted, so we drove to another vitamin store. Then we went to a Men's store to look for some t-shirts. When my husband saw the prices he sai... Mon, 14 Jul 2014 01:41:04 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5737065 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.3 miles. When we got home, my husband and I walked 2.6 miles. This weekend we will be busy getting ready for our vacation. We have to mow the lawn, do a little shopping and start figuring out what clothes we will be packing. We are going to Louisiana and Texas for 3 back to back reunions. My mom and grandson are leaving on Sunday. They are driving with my Aunt and Uncle. My husband and I will be leaving on Thursday. I need 3 more pounds before I... Sat, 12 Jul 2014 01:25:55 EST A Long Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5736417 I wasn't able to take my lunch time walk. My stomach was bothering me all day and I needed to stay near the restroom. After I ate my lunch it settled down some. I walked to the bus stop after work and then I walked 2 miles with my husband when we got home. I also went to Bible Study Still no progress on the scale but I'm not going up. That's good news all by itself. Fri, 11 Jul 2014 00:47:27 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5735524 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 3.3 miles. I will also walk a half mile to the bus stop when I get off work. I won't be walking tonight and I may not get my strength training in either. My husband's nephew is in the Air Force and he has been stationed overseas for at least the last 5 years. He hasn't been home to the states for at least a year. He will be leaving this week for Georgia and then he will be stationed at a Carolina base. My husband invited him and his brothers and a fe... Wed, 9 Jul 2014 18:07:27 EST The Count Down Begins http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5734724 When I woke up this morning, I weighed 246 pounds. I need to lose 4 more pounds to reach my short term goal. I had to leave work early this morning so I did not get my lunch time walk in. But my fitbit says I have already walked 2 miles. I had to walk to the bus stop and I walked around at work before I left. Now I am at home washing clothes. We are supposed to have company tomorrow night so I need to mop the kitchen and bathroom floors. I'm also watching TV and I have already ate my l... Tue, 8 Jul 2014 17:04:54 EST Out Of Hiding (LOL) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5733755 I took a little break from blogging. Last week I was so disappointed with my weight, I didn't feel I had anything to share. I had just gotten down to 247.6 on a Saturday and that Monday I was up 4 pounds. I know what did it. We had taken my mom and grandson out to eat and we went out to a business lunching. I was still exercising but I was eating too much. Anyway last Monday I decided I needed to get it together. I did my lunch time walks and I walked when I got home with my husband an... Mon, 7 Jul 2014 11:18:12 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5727476 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 3 miles. Then I walked half a mile to the bus stop after work. And when I got home my husband and I walked 2 miles. My mom and grandson game over for pizza and a movies. My grandson and I walked to get the pizza. By the time they left I was tired. My fitbit says I walked 17,000 steps and 7.45 miles. Time for some much needed sleep. Sat, 28 Jun 2014 00:57:32 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5726559 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 3.1 miles. I will also be walking half a mile after work. I may not walk this evening. I believe we are having Bible Study. Thu, 26 Jun 2014 18:16:52 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5725972 I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.9 miles. After work, I walked half a mile to the bus stop. After my husband picked me up, we walked around Costco. Then when we got home we walked 2 miles. I started using my weights again. I only did three strength training exercises with five pound weights. It's a start. I have to take it slow because the last time I used the weights I was having chest pains. My husband said I was trying to do too much. Wed, 25 Jun 2014 22:45:17 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5725047 Today I was able to convince my husband to take a rest day. Yesterday he was so tired after our walk and he didn't even walk up the hill. I told him he hadn't had a rest day since he started back walking after the doctor cut him. So we won't be walking after work today. But I went to our end of fiscal year luncheon, it was also a farewell luncheon for one of the temporary employees, and I ate 2 pieces of fried chicken and some kind of fried fish and a little rice.

I am done 95 pounds. It's almost hard to believe. I went from a size 32 to a size 22. I'm actually in between sizes. My 22 pants are lose and my size 20 pants are a little tight.

We got back home at around 12:30 pm. I was a little tired because I did all the driving. As soon as I got home my husband wanted to go rent a snake to clear our main pipe. So we went to get the snake and worked on the pipe. Then my husband wanted to go to an eye glass place to get some glasses. Then we went to a tools store and a supermarket.

And when I got home my husband wanted to walk up the hill. So we walked 3.6 miles. I may not get to walk tomorrow. I will be spending the day with my mom and we will be leaving very early in the morning. I hope everyone has a great weekend. Sat, 21 Jun 2014 00:23:23 EST
