Well today is day #5 and I think that I'm doing fairly well.
I blogged my 1st day of the challenge and today I will do a synopsis of the last 4 days.

Day#2: 1 c. oatmeal, strawberries, coffee, water.
Did a 15 minute walk w/CD. Steps for the day…7617

Day#3: 1c. raisin bran, coffee, water
Did 20 minutes w/Leslie Sansone including warm up. Steps for the day…8466

Day#4: yogurt w/strawberries, coffee, water
Did warm up, 1 mile, cool down w/Leslie Steps for the day…9040
I let my guard down and ate 2/3 can cashews. Shame on me.

Day#5: IHOP breakfast w/a friend…2 French toast w/pat of butter & 2 Tbl. syrup,
2 sausages, coffee.
Did warm up & walked a mile w/Leslie. So far…5720 steps.

I know I'm doing well with this challenge but I need to do better with the rest of the day's eating habits. This is hump day and now 5 days to go for me to do better.

    Keep up the good work, but stay away from the cashews. They taste great and it's too hard to eat just one. LOL! emoticon

It's been awhile since I last blogged. I really didn't have much to say so I waited until there was something relevant to tell you.

I started the "RISEANDSHINE" challenge this morning and I am so happy with myself. I've done 15 minutes of walking [with my exercise CD] plus walked to and from my mailbox and have eaten a healthy breakfast and lunch. This is remarkable for me after so many months of mindless eating.
This challenge is for 10 days and I know I will be able to accomplish this goal.
Supper will be simple and easy and healthy.

OK, one day down and nine to go!!

    Congrats on starting your challenge! That's great news!
And congrats on becoming more conscious about your eating. Once I figured that one out, it made things a whole lot easier for me.
Keep you the great work!

Thank you to all who wished be a Happy Birthday. Believe me when I say that it was a very happy day.
My sister and her partner are here to visit from Berlin, my daughter and her family came by with a delicious cake and the funniest card, and I got to see & speak with my son in Missouri via my sister's Ipad.
Plus I received cards from friends that I worked with in the hospital and my friends that are near me now.
I am blessed.

I'm back again to tell you a story about me and a hornet.
Last Sunday I was out watering the tomato plants and happened to see some hornets going in and out of a crack near my side door. So, I would squirt them with my hose, they would leave, and come back again to the crack near my door. I continued for awhile with the hornet squirting and lo & behold one hornet proceeded to fly just above my hair and then the little so & so stung me next to my right eye. Within hours the eyelid and the area around my eye became swollen and red. Cool comps and Aleve for me for the rest of the week.
My eye is better, there is still a bit of swelling after a week but I learned a valuable lesson...Don't squirt hornets!! Ever!!

    Please set up traps using soda pop or ground meat. The nests will just grow bigger if you don't do anything to reduce their population. Good luck.

    Yes, I hope that you are doing better, since that sting, they can continue stinging over and over again. It sure does hurt us humans.

Today my friend and I feel so good. We went to the SVDP thrift store to find a little treasure. We did! We found a young, homeless man with his dog sitting outside, in 90 degree weather, next to his bike and a cart, with all his worldly goods. They had no water, hadn't eaten and he hadn't washed in 3 weeks. He was originally from Louisianna and rode all the way up to the N.E. states and was trying to get back to his home [?] He had been homeless for awhile and didn't want to be around N.E. when the cold set in.
I gave him all the water I had in my car, we went to D.D.'s for donuts for him, and then off to Target to get him necessities and food and food and a toy for his dog . Another very kind lady gave him $5.00 to help him on his way.
Our hearts went out to this young man who definitely needed a helping hand. At least he and his dog will have food and water for a few days.
God Bless him on his journey home. He certainly needs everyone's prayers.
Also the people at SVDP let him and his dog in the store for respite from the heat and also gave him water.
We shall worry about him as we do our own. His name is Chris and he was so appreciative for our concern for him.
May he get to his home safely.

    We all should see the humanity and not the impossibility of helping every one of the homeless.

    Stories like this give me faith in humanity where there is so much loathing elsewhere. You are a kind heart and a good person. Chris was lucky to run into you today. I join you in wishing him good fortune and good travels.

    I love hearing this type of goodness in the world. It's stories like this that should be in the news everyday to spread like wild fire instead of the horror we have thrown down our throats over and over again. You are an angel and I am sure Chris knows this and his little dog too !!!

You are a blessing to know and I'm am proud to call you my friend !!!
