Happy Thanksgiving Eve

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Today is a busy day for many. In all the busyness may we all take time to be thankful and enjoy family and friends. I know I have enjoyed this time when my girls have been home from college. God has been very good it is Him I have to thank. I am going to try to eat light although the last 2 days haven't been good but today is a new day. Well off to make pies

cold go away

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

I thought I had gotten rid of this cold.... guess again it is back. Went to bed early last night since I felt so bad and woke up not feeling much better. Fell like I could sleep all day and my attitude isn't much better. maybe someday I will be back to normal

    When I first saw the title I thought it was about the cold weather : )
Sorry you are feeling so under the weather. You know the best thing to get over a cold is fluids and rest. Hope you can get both.

Feel better

the future

Monday, November 19, 2012

today on spark coach they asked us to look 10 years in the future. I 'm not sure i liked that. By then my kids will be grown and out of the house. My husband will still be working 60 hours a week and I will be alone most days I'm not sure what I will be doing but I am pretty sure my kids wont live near me. This was suppose to motivate you it just made me sad.

    Yes, but things can change in the blink of an eye. You may find something you really love to do and be glad you finally have time for YOU!

Yesterday was a good day. My daughter who keeps me going came home from college. We had a good day and it was a real motivator. I was able to exercise and we eat well (until the ice cream at night). It feels so good to be back and charged ready to work on this. Thanks to all of you who tried to encourage me and give me ideas. I will be implementing some of them.

    Yay for your daughter being back home! Don't sweat the ice cream this time. Just get back on the wagon.

each morning

Friday, November 16, 2012

Each morning I wake up with a new resolve and by the end of the day I am depressed because I couldn't make it work. I have cut my exercise down hoping that is what was holding me back.... nope can't seem to do even 10 min a day. The food just seems to jump into my mouth. I have lost all self control. I feel like sleeping all the time. The sad part of it all i know what to do and how to do it but is seems like I just can't do it. Like I said I start the day with good intentions but fail each day. So sorry these blogs have been such downers.

    Hi, I struggle with the day to day stuff, too. Like you, I'm really good in the morning time, but evenings are hard for me. Then again I wonder if it's the time of year--it can be kind of depressing around the holidays sometimes for me. How about focusing one single thing, like 10 mins of exercise per day, once you have that down pat then add in another thing like maybe not eating after dinner. I don't know why but taking each individual thing is easier than doing it all at once. I know I focused on exercise first when I joined SP, to just get moving again. Now I'm focusing on food intake. Hope you find a way. emoticon

my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years
old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off. took 16 months.

i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x. took 7 months.

use a salad plate as a dinner plate

use fruit for your sweet tooth cravings, an apple works great. helps with the chewing sensation.

fill your salad plate with half vegetables.

we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal
