Easter Sunday

Monday, April 21, 2014

We went to sunrise service at 6 am at our church. Then we came home took a nap then ate breakfast. After breakfast we took a 2 mile walk. Then we went to Lowe's and bought some backyard furniture, finally. We also got some more plants. We will be spending our day off in the back yard tomorrow getting it ready for the cookout on Saturday. Then we went to my dad's house. On the way we stopped at Walmart and bought some more jeans, a size smaller than what we are wearing. I had on a size 22, so I bought a pair of jeans in a size 20 and some ankle pants in a size 18-20. The ankle pants fit but I can't zip up the size 20 jeans yet. Hopefully, I'll only need a month. No one showed up at my dad's house, except a couple of my dad's neighbors and my stepbrother and sister. We played a few games of dominoes. We were there for about 4 hours. It took us almost 2 hours to get home. It's usually a one hour drive. The freeways were jammed. My husband was tired, so he went to bed. I'm catching up on some computer time. I hope everyone had a great Easter!

Saturday

Saturday, April 19, 2014

This morning my husband and I walked 3.6 miles. Then we mowed the lawn. I mowed the lawn while he edged it and used his weed cutter. I made a big mistake today. I thought I had moved the cord out of the way but I hadn't and I cut it in two pieces. I was so upset about it that it sapped my strength. My husband put the cord he was using on the lawn mower so I could finish. But it was a real chore after that. We will have to buy another cord in the next two weeks. After we finished the lawn we showered and went to pick up his grand daughter and her daughter. She is a real piece of work. She is 22 and acts like she is 13. I told my husband the reason she is not moving forward in her life, finish school, getting a job, etc., is she may not be mentally able to do it. We were supposed to buy the great grand baby, who is 5 an Easter basket. But after running errands for his grand daughter, he didn't want to stop anywhere else. He wanted to drop his grand daughter off and get going. Which is what we did. I felt bad for the baby. We are now home and I'm going to catch up on some reading and my husband is taking a nap. It's been a long day.

    Some days feel like one step forward, two steps back, don't they? If it helps, you accomplished a lot more than I did today! Sending you good wishes for a better tomorrow.

A Much Better Day

Friday, April 18, 2014

I made it out for my lunch time walk, 2.9 miles. Then after work I walked a half a mile to the bus stop. And when I got home I walked 3.6 miles with my husband. This time we cut 8 minutes off our time from Monday. My husband said he wanted to speed up the walk because I had been complaining that I needed a faster pace. I sure got it today. My fitbit says I walked 10 miles and over 20,000 steps. I'm also on track for being in my calorie range. I have already eaten dinner and I am getting ready to go do my hair. I have to color the gray. And While I am drying my hair, I'm going to watch a couple of my favorite TV shows and then off to bed. We have to get an early start in the morning. I would like to thank all my spark friends who gave me encouraging and inspiring comments on my blog yesterday. I really appreciate it! You all are awesome! I hope everyone has a great weekend! emoticon

Having a Hard Time

Thursday, April 17, 2014

I've been getting my lunch time walks in but I haven't been doing so well with my eating. I've been over my calorie range all this week. Today I didn't have to go to Bible Study so I walked on the treadmill while my husband walked on the street. I wanted to do some jogging which is easier on the treadmill. I walked/jogged 1.5 miles and I worked up a real good sweat. You would think after walking 2.9 miles at lunch time and exercising on the treadmill, I would stay within my calorie range. No, I blew it again today. I don't know what's wrong with me.

    Sounds like a very familiar story but the important thing is that you keep working at it. It's easy to beat ourselves up but we have to forget the past and just move forward. I really admire you for all the exercise you do on a regular basis. Sometimes the exercise and weight loss don't sync together at the same time which is frustrating. Hang in there though. You can do it!

    I'm having the same problem right now....don't let it get out of hand nip it in the butt now or in a few weeks or months you will have an even harder time fixing it. I just wish that I would have! emoticon

You have come so far over the last year....Keep it up ... it's inspiring! emoticon

    Remember this is a one day at a time thing. Each day starts out brand new. You are fully in charge of what you are doing and sometimes we think because we are exercising, we can eat anything we want. That was the trap I was in. Until I came to that conclusion, the scale was going the wrong way. You can do it!!!

    It is not easy to stay within our calorie ranges but don't get discouraged. Just keep trying and in time it will come. emoticon I found it helpful to aim for the higher end of my range and when that got easier I moved down to the middle range and that seemed to help me adjust to eating less. Now it has gotten easier but some days it is still a challenge. I do best when I plan out my three meals a day in the morning. That way I know how many calories I have left for "snacking". emoticon

    I had to have a really strong talk with myself to not eat out today. I did go home and eat healthy but it was hard. Sometimes the I will part just doesn't want to. You have my positive trouts that tomorrow will be better

    It's good that you are getting in the exercise. The calorie limits will come. Sometimes the more we tell ourselves we "have" to do something, the more we rebel. If you can come up with some recipes that are filling but low in calories, then your body (and brain) won't feel deprived. I try to add vegetables to everything because they help fill me up faster.

    Thanks for the support Ladies! Sometimes it gets frustrating but then I just have to look back at where I was. I'm not where I want to be but I thank God that I'm not where I was. emoticon
