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...

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.

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.

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 ...

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.

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...

I didn't go out early enough. I only walked 2 miles. I picked a route and I had planned to go around twice. It was so hot, I only made it around once. I decided to cut my losses. After work I walked half a mile to the bus stop. When my husband and I got home, it was still 80 degrees, too hot to walk. So we ate dinner and walked 2.6 miles an hour later. . <BR> <BR> 7.56 miles 17,187 steps <BR> Weight: 222.6 <em>39</em> <BR>...

After work I walked half a mile to the bus stop and when I got home I walked 2 miles with my husband. I'm going to go out early tomorrow too. It's going to be way too hot if I wait un... Thu, 23 Jun 2016 23:09:01 EST Rough Couple Of Days http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6187968 For the last few days I have been in pain. My neck and back hurt so bad I could barely move. I don't remember doing anything to strain myself. My mom thought it was gas, so my husband went to the store to get me some medicine. That didn't relieve it. I was taking ibuprofen every 8 hours and that didn't help either. I guess whatever it was only time could heal it. My husband tried to get me to stay home and rest but I didn't want to. I was so depressed about this pain that I just kept ... Thu, 23 Jun 2016 00:36:21 EST
