Today was a good day. I woke up and cooked breakfast for my oldest son, who is 20 and my two grandsons, who are 11 and 7. My younger son spent the night with his dad but came home after we had eaten breakfast. The four boys and I went bowling. Usually I send the boys somewhere and I stay home. I usually do not participate in activities with them. Today the five of us went bowling. I had such a great time. We laughed and had fun. I haven't bowled for years and I kept thinking I was going to fall down and not be able to get up. I was scared. The first game I didn't do very well. My older grandson kicked our butts. Andrew scored over 100 pts. I think I bowled a 58 or something awful like that. The second game was a little better. My older son won that one but I came in second. I took pictures of the boys and my grandson wanted to take a picture of me, well, the pictures are the worst pictures and by looking at them, I can't see that I have lost any weight. They are not pictures that I can compare to anything.. I just hope that I will not be looking like this much longer. I will be sooo happy when I can post pictures that I am proud of.. Going out and doing something with my boys was a major step for me. I am not comfortable in crowds and avoid going out unless I absolutely have to. I am just embarassed by this blob I have become.

On a different note, I didn't walk jog yesterday because I spent the day out in the sun with my grandsons playing football. After the football game two of the boys came and spent the night with me. I was busy with them and didn't do my regular exercises. Today after the boys went home I did 30 minutes of walk jogging and out of the 2 hours that we bowled, I added 15 minutes of that as exercise!!! Just venting.

By the way, this is a difficult week for my family, I would appreciate any prayers anyone wants to share for us. I will explain more as the week goes on.

    Wow! You are surely staying active these days! I golfed this weekend with my kids, ages 30 and 26. I was just terrible, but I just loved it! Anyway, with your attitude it won't be long before you see many changes in your body! emoticon emoticon

    emoticon going out and enjoying your family. And believe me that bowling and playing football are excellent exercises, not to mention the wonderful memories you made. And about your pictures...... I know that one all too well but have learned that I am a work in progress. I look at it as "I'm in the process of remodeling my house". Hopefully people like who I am not what I look like at the moment! Keep up the good work and keep on enjoying life!

    First of all, emoticon speaking negatives out over yourself!
    God don't make NO junk younglady! Do you hear me! emoticon
    Now, with that said, I think it is FANTASTIC that you got out with your boys two days in a row!
    I hadn't gone bowing in forever either, and a few months ago, I went as well, with my children! IT was a blast! LIFE is for the LIVING! and it is TOO short not to go and enjoy every last minute of it. God let us wake up this morning, so let's be glad and rejoice in it!! emoticon emoticon
    Lastly, we are our own worse critics. I am sure you are looking better. It's just a slow process. WE didn't get out of shape over night, and we are not going to get back into shape over night. Give yourself a break. AND love yourself for what and who you are! A marvleous creation of God's! emoticon

    Love you Sister,

    Good for you for trying something and not looking like an expert - bowling is hard and you have a pretty big audience as you try to get it right. I went to a company function that was a bowling event. I spent the whole night trudging up there and trying again. I finally dropped the ball I was sweating so much. Finally - on the last frame, one of my colleagues --who is incredibly competitive or she would have told me sooner - tells me I am putting the wrong fingers in the ball!!! Couldn't figure out how I hadn't broken my wrist trying to turn the ball!!! So you could NEVER be any worse than me!! emoticon
