On track....

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Day three of 2012 and I'm feeling strong... I've been to the gym and/or completed some sort of physical activity for the last four days... and feel great!
I joined the January Fitness Challenge Team, for the extra motivation! So far so good!
We have a work day at school today, I'm hoping to be able to sneak in a walk during lunch on our own!
Everyone have a great day!!!

New Plan for the new year!

Saturday, December 31, 2011

I'm ashamed to admit that I haven't made it to the gym in over two weeks...which wouldn't be so bad if I'd been getting some other type of exercise...but basically no, I've been what some might call a "SLUG". However, that ends today... I have goals to meet, before my 50th birthday... which means I've got to get back on track...
So.... I am going to weigh in tomorrow morning... I know I'll be up... but don't know how much... but once I weigh in... I'll be better prepared to adjust/redefine my goals so that I WILL meet them by my 50th birthday in March!
Look out world (GYM) here I come!!!

Long, long, week!!!

Friday, December 30, 2011

My husband and I made it back home about 4:30 this evening! It's been a long, long, eight days and I'm very thankful to be back home! This past several days have been stressful and I'm extremely guilty of NOT eating correctly and to make matters worse I haven't gotten any exercise to speak of... the good news is, I KNOW what I need to do to get back on track and will be doing so immediately!
On a personal note, thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers regarding the death of my father-in-law, the funeral service was beautiful and worthy of him. The "kids" have now begun the arduous task of closing their parents estate!

  


Life has a way of changing...so love and live today...

Friday, December 23, 2011

I won't be weighing in today... I was supposed to be waking up in Vegas this morning, but as we know life has away of changing and that's what's happened for us this week! My darling husband and I were on our way to KC Wednesday afternoon, so we'd be with our daughter and her family, so they could take us to the airport on Thursday when we got a phone call letting us know his father had passed away! His death was totally unexpected and really hit my husband hard, who just lost his mother in September. However, we also realize just how lonely Bert was without Betty and truly believe they will be celebrating Christmas together in heaven this year!
As for my weight loss progress, I'm hopeful that there will be another Friday morning for weighing in.. although I've come to truly appreciate the fact that done of us are guaranteed a tomorrow! So lets all love and live today!

    I'm sorry for your loss. Tomorrow isn't promised to us. It's hard to lose both parents in such a short time.

    Sorry for your husband's loss. However, as you have said, it is heaven's gain. Hope you both have a Merry Christmas.

    My sympathies on the loss of your father-in-law. It's so true that our lives can and do change in but a moment.

A loss is a loss...and family...

Friday, December 16, 2011

Weigh in day.... I'm down six tenths of a pound this week.. Yeah!!!! I'm thankful for this small loss, as it shows that I CAN continue to lose even when life gets super duper busy!!! My new total is 87.5 pounds lost total, 65.8 of those pounds coming since I joined SparkPeople in February!!!

All my little darlings (four grandbabies) and their parents will be in this evening for our family Christmas!!! I'm so excited... love my crazy little family!
Everyone have a great week-end!
