still hanging in there

Friday, March 22, 2013

Haven't blogged since last July and haven't come here regularly since a year ago March. I had hit a plateau and my doctor told me it is not a plateau. Because of my work, I had developed man size muscles and working out was bringing them on again. As he said I would probably lose not more than another 20 pounds if I was lucky. If I continued working out as I was (several hours a day) I would be muscle bound again. Since I wasn't supposed to work out like that anyway, I finally obeyed my doctor and cut back.
The good news is that I have lost another 4 pounds but I have gone down 2 sizes in clothes and they are loose again. I am healthy, walking (can outwalk any of my children or grandchildren) except for osteoporosis, arthritis and Gerd and fine. Only medicine is Alleve or allergy medicine. I still am doing some of the exercises (love my version of low impact kick boxing) lots of heavy garden work.
I have painted the window in my bedroom for the second time. I had needlestitched a tiger and put him in the window and painted the background of Jungle and savannah. It is a hit. In one bedroom I painted venetian blinds on the windows under the venetian blinds for privacy reasons. In 17 months no one has realized that they are painted on.
So I am eating healthy, drinking my water and other fluids, getting my veggies and fruits, exercising, socializing and having fun, enjoying life and being healthy. I also talk about how Spark People has helped me and gotten many people to join or at least check you out.
Keep on hanging in there people. It works and it works very well. Here's to the good Spark life.

    I more or less took the summer off from Spark. Not such a good idea for me! I am back now and slowly losing the weight I gained.
