I have not been able to walk this week, first with the storm Friday night and power outage and then with the continuing heat and humidity and my asthma. I have been active though.

I am frustrated b/c the weight comes off so slow these days and I am disabled so there are a lot of exercises I can't do. But... when I remember in Spring 2010 I weighed almost 250 and had diabetes ... then I am proud and grateful for how far I've come. I've only lost 4 pounds so far this year, but it's a heck of a lot better than gaining 4 ... or 40! emoticon

Good day everyone,

I just started the training with the first 15 min walk. I usually do more but I want to stick to the training format because I need the discipline.

Hi,
Morning is the best time to get anything done outside. Be glad when I weigh what you do.
6 days a week I get up around 5:00 have my devotions, feed my dog, plus now have a wild bird the children at church found yesterday. One had died, they didn't see any nest where it was, but did see the one on the otherside of the drive threw. So I am feedind it until it is big enough to fly.

Bleagh! Too hot and humid today! And too much to do. 9574 steps on my pedometer, and it's late. Do I walk another 500 steps to make the 10,000? There's a four mile walk I had plans to do, but then our Family Member landed in the hospital, and that was that. Then we had to have our precious cat put to sleep. Just one thing after another. I intend to get this four mile walk in. I'm already walking a lot because I was on the Curves diet which involves lots of exercise and walking. I could walk the 5K tomorrow if I had to, I'm already trained. I just need some crazy stuff to slow down so that I can get my heavy-duty walks in.

Good Evening Everyone,

This was my lite day today. I work out for 9 minutes with the Biggest Loser on WII. I did 3 loads of clothes and one load of dishes. Now I am enjoying watching TV with my husband (Apachesteve). This is his first week at Sparkpeople.

My 5k is the end of July. I hope I do good. I know I will have a good time.

I hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

Good Afternoon Everyone,
Yesterday I went to the gym and worked out. I rode the emoticon bike for 47 minutes. Attended the emoticon Silver emoticon Sneakers emoticon Class emoticon for one hour. Also did the weight emoticon machines for 40 minutes.

I'm getting ready to work out to the biggest loser on WII. Then I will have to take Robert to wednesday emoticon bowling emoticon league. The team that Robert is on won all 4 games today. I was proud of them. After that I will take Robert to his counseling session then back home to cook supper.

I have lost 3 more pounds this week.

Hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

I had such walking plans today! But I had to take my Sweetie to the emergency room, so there went the better part of the afternoon, and all of dinnertime. I only had enough time to get in a quickie workout at Curves, and then it was too late for the 4 mile walk I'd planned.

Hi,
I am not doing anything I don't have to, watered the garden & went to the chiropractor yesterday evening. He said I have a heat rash on my legs & all I do outside every morning, but Saturday, is water the garden foods, that are in pots this year.
Use a aircondistioner at night & turn it off when I wake up about 4:00AM. Then I turn it on about 8:00PM, so it will be cool when I go bed. It only cools the bedroom.

Have a nice day,
Irma

Good Evening Everyone,

I went to the gym today and worked out. I walked on the emoticon treadmill for 44 minutes. Attended the emoticon Silver emoticon Sneakers emoticon Class emoticon for one hour. Came home and did one load of Clothes and one load of dishes before going out with Robert. We went over to see how dad was and took him some peaches. He wasn't home so I left the peaches with the caregiver and she said that we have a celebrity in the house. She said that dad enjoyed watching the weather that Robert did on Channel 5.

We came back home and I started supper and now time to rest and get caught up with the teams and food logging.

Hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

Just got back from a 15 min walk and 15 min bike ride. This was a major victory for me today because my mind didn't want my body to go there, but my body wanted to go. So I got my mind made up and went. Yeah! Score 1 for my team!

That is the way to get it, when you see it & most of all if you can get it at a lower price. That is really good, that you could put the things on layaway. Keeps them nice until they are needed & no one can be tempted to use them before time.

Have a nice day,

Good Evening Everyone,

Today Robert and I went to the gym and worked out. I rode the emoticon bike for 62 minutes. Attended the emoticon Silver emoticon Sneakers emoticon Class emoticon for one hour.

Then I took Robert to Hibbet Sports to get a basketball for practice and shoes he will need this next year. He wasn't too happy when he found out I was putting everything in layaway. I told him that he didn't need the stuff until August.

We then went 30 miles to Russellville to go grocery shopping. Finally returned home at 7 pm.

Hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

You are doing great. To answer your question I believe 1 mile is 1 mile no mater how you do it. so if it says you did so many steps on the treadmill I would say you had taken that many steps, when you walked to the hospital.

Good Evening Everybody!,

Found out yesterday talking to a neighbor that he was robbed last week. They had gone to Peru to see his wifes family. Usually they come over to tell us that they are going so that we can keep an eye on their home for them. They didn't this time. I don't know if it would have made any difference or not. I wasn't home much with having to take our son to basket ball practice and going up to the hospital every day. The person or person's got away with $700 that the family left for a lady to pay the utilities with. All the rx meds that was in the house. The wife used to be a RN so some of the meds were pain pills and diabetic pills. Took a cell phone and keys to the truck which they couldn't get out of the garage. The garage doors has to be open with a clicker and the clicker was in Little Rock at the air port.

I have a ? for you ladies. I made 9 trips to the hospital and walked a total of 2 miles each to and from the hospital room. The tracker wants to know how much time it took me to walk a mile. I don't know. I didn't keep track of it when Steve was in the hospital. Would I put down the same amount of time it takes me to walk a mile on the treadmill.

emoticon I lost 5 pounds this week. I like one pound getting to oneder land. I cannot wait.

Today Robert and I went to the gym and worked out. I rode the emoticon bike for 19 minutes. Attended the emoticon Silver emoticon Sneakers emoticon Class emoticon for one hour.

I then took Robert to wednesday emoticon bowling emoticon league where they won 3 out of 4 games. He received his 1st place team trophy and trophy for highest scratched scores for 11 and under.

I hope everyone has an emoticon day with whatever you do.

Hi,
The best thing to do is just keep at it & don't give in to eating the wrong things & remeber to drink lots of water. In this hot weather I get out as soon as I can, to wather the garden. Then walk to where need to go. I have no one to walk with me on the many trails that are here or I would walk more then I do.

This is my Day 1 of the Training Program for walking, and of course, for the 5K Challenge. I did well for day 1, but I have been walking regularly for over a month... I just needed a way to challenge myself to do it ALWAYS! And to increase my speed.

Hi Ginger,
Looks like you keep very busy. Slowing down a little to read the Bible & pray in the mornings, will help your day to be even better. Glad to see you are doing a lot of things to help loose the unwanted pounds.
All I can do is walk, where there is no cement or pavement. So only can walk to & from the garden. I do walk to the health food store twice a month. It is better on my back to walk then to go on the bus. The bus jars me to much.

Have a nice day,

Hi,
It is really special when they are young & want to help. When they get old enough to do it alone, then they don't want to do anything. Atleast, with my boys, that is how it was.
When my oldest son was 4 years old, a lady, that worked with mentally handycapped children said, if they could learn to make their own bed at 4 years old, then a normal child aught to beable to make their own bed.
From then on depending on what they were able to do, I tought them, how to do everything, they would need to know how to do, as far as keeping a home clean & cooking simple things.
Enjoy working with your son.

Hi everyone,
I helped my son out side today with the lawn. Then we came in and I did a load of clothes and took them out and let the sun dry them. It was hot here in Arkansas today. My son was telling me if we could fry an egg. I told him no that is just a saying that people say when it is hot outside. My son asked if I was done with everything so that we could see a movie. I told him no that I have to do a load of dishes. He told me that he would unload the dishwasher for me. I love it when kids want to help. It gives me a chance for a teachible moment with him.

I hope everyone has a good everning with whatever you do.

Had Ladies Night Out tonight at the church. This month was Women's Self Defense night. One of the instructors asked me where Robert was. Robert used to be in Martial Arts under this instructor for 6 yrs. I told him that he is home playing nurse maid to my husband who has been home now for 2 days. It was fun learning how to defend ourselves against muggers and preditors. I brought desert home to my fellows afterwards. The guys enjoyed the cinnamon rolls and told Robert that the instructors said hi and that they wished that you were there. Robert told me I told you so. But I figured since it was Ladies night out they didn't want any boys there. There one lady that brought her daughter to it. My dad had to stay an extra day in the hospital. The nurses are now saying he is getting out tomorrow some time. PT was started on him Wednesday getting him up and walking around. Hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

I did take a long bubble bath and had a cup of chamomile tea with honey. I slept wonderfully and awakened refreshed. Today I took care of my baby grandson and walked him two miles in the stroller. Nothing hurts today. :)

Happy Mother's Day! I think I overdid. We worked continually over 5 hours. I did a lot of digging, moved 40 more bags of soil and spread them, mulched and put down chips. LOL even my finger tips hurt. I have a tiny garden. Yesterday I did the landscape and fed the shrubs on one side of my house. I still have the other side and two areas near the street. Thank you for the ideas. I will call the county and tree services for chips. I have a large island to do too. Wow. It does feel good and I think I will have some muscles after all of this. What we did looks wonderful. Its raining today so my seeds are getting natural sprinkling.

Have a wonderful relaxing day with family.

Good morning,
Happy Mothers Day. The more you exercise the less you will hurt, besides the fact that you will be loosing unwanted pounds. When you can go pick home grown vegetables,then all the work will be worth it. Not to speak of how much money you will save. Eat lots of salads & most things can be eatten raw, which is better for you. Just be careful what dressings & sauces you use, homemade fat free are the best.
If you make a few calls you may find where you can go & get all the free mulch you want for just loading it. Don't forget the chips, you can get them by calling, whoever cuts the tree branches from the phone wires.

Have a nice day,
Irma63

I'm off the Home Depot to get in a lot of my walking, then its digging in the garden again. Today is nice and cool. The reminder to pray for guidance and help is the best. We have not because we ask not. Walking has given me the feeling of thanksgiving and peace to meditate and pray. The time goes quickly. Love and thanks Irma. Bless you and have a wonderful day.

Thank you, everyone can use help one way or another. My church sister & her children came yesterday evening to get the rest of their garden plants, that I had to share with them. They have never had a garden before. This morning they will be planting what they got yesterday.
Pray each morning for the Lord to be with you, as you do what you need to do to loose though unwanted pounds & He will. He will always help us, we only have to ask, as long as it is something, that is going to be good for us.
Have a nice day, emoticon

No garden today. Rain and sooo tired from yesterday. I'm doing the begin again 30 days and its a habit to get back on track. I'm a bit slower until my tailbone heals but It feels great. I refused to go to bed today without doing at least 30 minutes of brisk walking. I did well last year with the Spark. Thank you for the encouragement.

Hi Everyone,
You get the newpaper at a recycling place, mow the weeds if you have any. Put the newspaper down, using 4 Sheets of newspaper & overlap them 3-4 inches & put about 4 inches of mulch on top of the newspaper. Then on top of that you put 4 inches of woodchips. I will send the website address in a little while of where you can hear the whole thing about what to do & how, but start with the newspaper with the mulch on top of it.

The oldest one where I was yesterday is 13 & the youngest in the one family is 2. Of the ones I was telling their mother where to mulch & then she called a friend to where to get newspaper. We had a busy day, the mother also made some stops where she need to go.
When we got the garden all fixed ready to plant, then ate, with anther family, that lives there. After we ate then they brought me home & I was a happy tired & slept very well.

I so consider my gardening exercise... sometimes more, sometimes less, but it's always good to commune with Mother Nature. Wish I had little ones to teach... maybe someday. My grandson usually leaves with something to add to his garden and that is good. My dogs are very small and the neighboring dogs are very large and not welcoming... so I only get bending excercise when getting pebbles out of my shoes, that works:) My veggies are just emerging and I am so excited. My previous attempts at growing food have not been as successful as I'd have hoped... This is the year... I can do it!!! Thanks for the encouragement:)

Hi,
Working in your garden is good exercise. I work in the garden or doing something outside as much as I can.
Taking time to pet the cute dogs on your walk is good, too. It that way you make them happy & you get to do a bending exercise, without thinking about it.
Yesterday I enjoyed teaching a mother & he children about planting a garden. I had planted several different kinds of vegetable seeds in biodegradeble egg cartens for them. They took them home yesterday, plus I let them have one of 3 different kinds of tomatoes, that I had been given. I have some for me, too.

Have a nice day,

My favorite verse is Hebrews 13:5
"He (G*D) said to me, I will never leave thee nor forsake me"
Also found in many other books: Joshua 1: and Matthew and in the words of Jesus my Messiah!
I also love reading Sauls-Pauls Roman road!
Favorite verse in the New Testament is :Romans 8:1."There is therefore, NOW, no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.... but after the Spirit! My desire!
My favorites writer,j.myers /Charles calls.

I started back on my exercise routine two days ago and took my dogs out for a walk yesterday (1 mile - 20 minutes). My foot is still a little sore so I'm going to give myself a bit more healing time before I try to start the training schedule. Otherwise all is well:) How's it going for you?

I really hope I can do it this time. I joined this team last year then hurt my foot and had to do other things for a while. I was just ready to try this again... I was waiting for the rain to stop or at least slow down and I stepped on a nail. It's healing well and I believe I'll get busy walking next week! I WILL DO IT THIS TIME:)
