Fitness Minutes: 21,936

My Goals:
So, I am going to shake things up a bit... Let's see if THIS will work. I need to become more accountable
1/22 227 BIG ICK
1 pound per week. This I am going to try and do. Eat better, Move more, it's a pound, I can DO a pound, but gee whiz, 52 pounds this year, sounds so much better than 1 pound this week...

My Program:
I need to remember what I am putting in my mouth .
I need to remember that if I canít (wonít) walk because itís cold out, I need to move in another way.
I need to remember that if I donít burn calories, I will not continue to lose weight.
I need to remember that whole foods are better than processed foods.
I need to remember that this is a journey to the rest of my life.


Personal Information:
I joined Sparks a couple of years ago, and every once in a while I would post what I ate. This spring (2010) I decided I would make myself more accountable. So, here I am, 50. WOW how cool. I am 50. Now the flip side of that is I often don't think I have changed the world, I think I thought I would. I didn't invent anything that changed the world, People don't say, Oh, there she goes, you know, she founded... Updated..
1/14 I am still here, I am now 53, and I am still on the journey, and I WILL NOT GIVE UP.
.


Other Information:
To wake up every day grateful for the things I already have. To remember that life is a gift not given, and that if I don't do something about my weight, I may not have a long life, which I need, and so does my family.

Thanks for the shoes. I was just thinking that when we go to Grand Junction this weekend if we have time I would look for a new pair. I was released from having to go to the therapist on Monday but I have to keep up the exercises until Halloween

Thanks for stopping by and for thinking of me. I just went to the doctor yesterday. I've been having pain in the arch of my foot. He said it was because fixing the toe caused the arch to be even more flat and that is what is causing the pain. He ordered physical therapy 2 to 3 times a week for 6 weeks and see if that helps. If it doesn't then I'll have to have another foot surgery to correct the flat footedness. Oh Joy!

I feel more comfortable walking even with the pain and now that I know that I didn't undo what was done in the surgery I will start doing my long walks again in spite of the pain if I can stand it.

I really hope the PT helps I'm not looking forward to another surgery but if that's what it takes I guess I'll have to endure it.

I hope you have a great day and are doing well with your healthy program.

Patty

“Not to give up under any circumstances should be the motto of our life: we shall try again and again, and we are bound to succeed. There will be obstacles, but we have to defy them. So do not give up, do not give up!
Continue, continue! The goal is ahead of you. If you do not give up, you are bound to reach your destined goal.‚ÄĚ

Thank you for commenting on my blog, "Day 7 Of My Streak." Have a great day!

PS: Yep, I cut at least five inches of my hair...well, my hubby did it for me (and he was so apprehensive, lol.) I am loving my shorter hair, it makes life a lot easier!

The doctor has been pleased with my progress. I go back next Tuesday. I'm not sue if I will have x-rays then or the next week. I'm generally feeling okay, well enough to be working half days. That is good for me. How are things with you?
