Happy Birthday to me!

Sunday, August 04, 2013

Yes, it's my birthday. I have already given myself a gift! I got up and took a walk. I conquered the hill that gave me pause a few weeks ago. Oh, I was huffing and puffing when I got to the top, but I also had a nice sunrise to look at!

Mom left yesterday. I am glad to report that I am down a pound for the week! This includes eating out at various places, but coupled with a ton of walking! On Friday we got in about 6 miles! The dog, and my 78 year old mother, were both troopers. Seriously, I think my mom is in better shape than I am! Really though, it was like a min-vacation. We drove the scenic route to the coast, stopping a few times to wander through some redwoods. Then we walked down to a beach, and again wandered down to pretty little lighthouse. breaking it up like that made it doable for both of us.

We did feel it yesterday when we walked down to the farmer's market though!

Now, if I can only figure out how doing the dishes and grocery shopping is a gift for me, we'll be all set!

Have a great day everyone!

    Happy Birthday! Good, good job on getting a walk in and conquering that hill! You made it to the top - we all need to look at the positives in life. Sounds like you and your mom (and dog) were a good team!
    Now, about those dishes and grocery shopping.....think of it this way, you have been blessed with the abilities to buy groceries, and also are physically able to do the dishes. Isn't that a wonderful gift in itself? (I need to constantly remind myself of that!!!!)
    Hope you have a fantastic day!

    Wonderful that you had such a special time with your Mom; super that you were able to have fun, eat out, work in exercise, and still lose weight!
