A long and beautiful day

Monday, July 09, 2012


It's a beautiful day so far and it was great to walk in with the dog. Was thinking on a 3rd walk with the dog this morning but going to wait until later.

My dad must be getting up because the dog is really wagging her tail hard. She does that whenever he's getting up. And he is up.

I almost thought that I had lost some weight but I haven't. I'm still at 199 pounds. I had my clues on letting me know that I've lost weight. I'm hoping soon that I will be lose some weight. I'll be adding more workout DVDs and exercises and hopefully treadmills and stationary bikes. I need to get down to 180 pounds to where I can get off of my blood presure medicine. I have 3 months and 2 days until I see my doctor and he can take me off of the medicine. Plus I'm going to see if I can go every 2 years to see him instead of every year.

When I turned on the computer this morning, it showed 77 degrees. Now it's 79 degrees. It's showing that we are going to get up to 90 degres today. At least it's not the triple digit heat.


We went to get our vehicle serviced today at the car dealership we got it at. It ended up being free for some reason. I think its a loaty program thing that the dealership has.

It's up to 89 degrees. I think that it got up to 90 degrees today but I'm tot sure.

I asked my dad if we could make it to Dayton, Ohio on a take of gas with our 2011 Ford Escape and he said yes. And we will have enough to run around the town for a while. THat's good. WE did have enough gas in our 2012 Ford Focus when we had it.


I worked on my knitted leftover yarn afghan 3 times today and I'm getting really close in getting it done. I might be able to get it done by the weekend at the rate I've been working on it. If I can't get to sleep tonight I may work on it then. I've been working on it for over a year now.

Its 77 degrees right now. Last week it was in the 90s at this time. At least its not as hot as it was in the house as last week but I'm going to wait until the house is 100% cooler to do a workout DVD.

I'm working on my 2nd 2L bottle of water right now. I'm hoping to get it done before I go to bed tonight.
