Staying motivated

It's hard to stay motivated when you lack time. I'm a Sous Chef, so yes, I'm around food everyday. I work strange hours, sometimes mornings and sometimes afternoon and evenings. I also work with my husband. I like biking, swimming, walking. I would like to try some other things like tennis. I'm also trying to motivate my husband too.

My Goals:
Basically to stay on track. Iwas a member of weight watchers, and have lost the 25 pounds I wanted to, but I want to stay healthy and stay motivated.

My Program:
I try to walk or bike ride at least 3 or 4 times a week. Soon I will be back to swimming also. I watch and keep track of the food that goes into my mouth.

Personal Information:
I'm a Sous Chef by trade. I love to cook and enjoy finding new ways of cooking healthy food. I live in Florida but grew up in New York. I'm married with no children. Life is good.

Other Information:
For fun, I'm a writer. I belong to a fabulous writing group on line. I've written a novel and trying to find an agent. I'm finishing another first draft, and started a third. This may take forever. I also draw and paint. I enjoy baking but I don't eat desert and my hubby shouldn't either so I don't bake much except at Christmas.

I decided to call our snake Spot! emoticon Makes him less scary! I just don't want him under the house, which has happened before! UGH! Gotta go buy more snake repellent, we had it before, but need to reapply once in awhile.
Have a good weekend. Hope all is going good! emoticon

You go into your feed at the top of your page-see headings, right under your name and see FEED and just comment like you do on the normal large feed. What I do is once I post them and want to comment on them, like where they are or more info than the feed will allow, I will do that. Go to my page and see feed at top and do it that way. Or once you post the photo you can still comment in the box above where it shows the jpg info. before you post it.
Went for walk today...just posted pics. Have a good night. emoticon

That was so funny about the squirrel and the Doritos! That should be on one of their commercials! emoticon
Glad you figured out how to get to your page and saw the comment. I have been swamped lately with insurance paper work, phone calling, & still scanning photos-almost done with that. I gave up on the idea of scanning them all. Just got down to scanning the important ones I really wanted to preserve...like our wedding pics. the others, that weren't so great, landscapes, and such, threw out. I have one Big photo album now, instead of 20! emoticon
Sure am relieved about Bob's test results coming back benign!! He sure hasn't been handling all this happening recently...been so grumpy...and I don't blame him. But sometimes! UGH! He never gets sick, so was a shock to have the dental, and skin things come up all at once! He still has to put a cream on his face to heal the severe sunburn damage for two weeks. He just got that and says he will start it over the weekend. His face will not look good while it treats it...red, peeling, maybe even scabs. I feel for him...but, he was the one who refused to put sunscreen on when going out to mow! Now he knows better! He is even wearing long sleeves when he does.
Have a good day and weekend coming up. Hope all is going well, with the downsizing and all. Take care..... emoticon

Those are really some nice pics you are scanning in for us! I am having so much fun scanning mine in. I took all the photos out of the old albums. Lumped them in categories and then thinned them out. I read where if you are decluttering your photos, keep 3 of each. Get rid of landscapes they said. I have, unless it was of a specific trip we took, then I kept the best of those. I only kept one of the nicer, newer photo albums that holds 300 pics and putting the best of whatever in them, some I am scanning, some I am not. Usually the ones I am not scanning are of friends or distant relatives or multiple pics of our homes. I scan only the special ones. Thanks for sharing those. Maybe you could do a blog of them too, like I am. Share a history with them or tell of the place you went to, etc. I have really enjoyed it. Keeps my mind off things too. If you or I are planning on moving anytime in the near future, I feel like I would rather downsize and declutter now than wait till the last minute!
Have a good weekend! emoticon

P.S. I love your background too! We are getting really bad storms right now! Whew...the rain is coming down and windy! emoticon

Thanks for stopping by my blog. You are lucky to have seen the Grand Canyon! Not many people get to in their lifetime. My parents haven't ...never was in to traveling. I hated that when I was growing up! So when we got married, we made up for it. We should have done more out west, but we loved Myrtle beach so much we went there all the time. 20/20 hindsight. Even to go the New England states...wish we had went there when we lived closer!
Hope all is ok...glad you had a good time camping. Keep me posted on how you are. Sparkmail is still on ..... emoticon
