life and preparing for a 7K..not what you think

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Good morning ! Hope all is well with you and yours.
We are cold and overcast this morning in eastern Oregon. It has been cold but sunny for most days. We really need rain.
I am working on baby quilt tops..I have 2 more to go before all are taken to the quilt shop for quilting. I had 5 to complete.
We had 6 grandbabies in the last two years..I didn't make any in that time frame because of a family tragedy..but I am back sewing now..catching up.
I got on the scale today and gained some from yesterday..No problem, as I know I have been faithful in my adhering to 1200 cal. a day, plus my exercise. Yesterday I did 6 miles on the recumbent bike.
I am going to ride my 3 wheeler bike in a 7K run next month..I want to be in shape for that. I got the okay from the sponsors to ride..since I can't walk that far...I certainly can do it on my bike. I will probably look like an idiot..but who is looking? I want to get healthier..and entering these challenges are a fun way to achieve the goal..which is good health.
Hope you all well on your journey...Sharlene.

    Good for you for getting out there on your bike! I'm glad the sponsors gave you the OK. Sometimes your weight will fluctuate from your workouts even if you are staying in your calorie range, so be patient. I wish I could send you some of our rain from the Chicago area, we have flooding in the streets. Still waiting for it to warm up here too. Congratulations on all of the grandbabies and yes, you should post pictures of the quilts. I'm sure they will love to have them as a keepsake.

    I love that you will be riding in the 7K. It should be a blast. Is the 7K a big turn out?

    It's been cooler here in sunny California too! I think today the weather is warming up, it will be nice to open up the house again. I hear you on the rain, but that just not something we will be getting around here.

    Congratulations on staying within your calorie range. That is something that I'm working on getting better at.

    Please post pictures of the quilts when they are done!

    Have a great day!
