Sensible?? Me??

I somehow managed to eek out a 1.5 lbs loss this week. I have no idea how that happened. I ate out alot, though I didn't go crazy. Plus, I walked alittle farther each day last week, so that helped also. I am looking forward to a great week ahead.

Like Mr. Shit said in his weigh in post. It feels like this is something I could do long term. I didn't feel deprived at all. I was sensible. I am over the moon excited about looking better, but all in all...being able to walk and breath easier is the best. I wasn't perfect last week, but I was vigilant about not eating really bad stuff. Again, I tried to eat good for me foods. Drank alot of H2o.

I have been noticing that I am getting more sensible in alot of other areas of my life as well. Spending money being one of them. Another is the way my housekeeping has improved. I decide to clean instead of eat......MOST TIMES...lol.

I got another old person to help out for some extra cash....sweet! So now I hae Mr. 92 and Mrs. 82. I called her yesterday and said "Are you still expecting me" She said " Expecting, but not pregnant" hehehe. She thought that was the funniest thing she ever said...lol. She a very sweet little woman.

The car is in the process of getting fixed. Riding my bike to work. Even this has been freeing. We depend way to much on our cars. Being able to walk or bike to work is awesome! 7 months ago this would have been a disaster for me. I would never have been ale to live without it. Now, it's inconvenient, but not the end of the world.

Put in aother bid on a house yesterday. Not expecting much, but not giving up either.

Make it a good day.

Keep the mood and the food real!

  4. What a great attitute and outlook you have! I think with success in the weight loss comes success in improving other areas of our life. I am trying to work on the housecleaning and organizing myself. Recently I got sidetracked as i have renewed passion in creating the jewelry.

    Here's to our successes in our life!

  5. Congrats on your loss! What a shining example of mindfulness you are!

    Glad you found another senior to help. I wish we had found someone like you for my dad.

    Congrats on the car victory. That is a huge victory, your attitude, your ability to get around.

    Good luck with the house. When it is meant to be, it will happen.

    You are such an inspiration to me with your attitude. It's a great help to me to read your blog, you help me grow. =)

  8. I'm the opposite of you. The more sensible I get food-wise, the less I get at least money-wise. I think I'm compensating.

  9. Wonderful job! I think it's just great that you are so positive, and that you see how far you've come (ie: bike, etc.)

    I hope the car gets fixed permanently!

  21. Well, I must be doing something wrong then, my housework has gone by the wall since I started this healthy eating thing. I blame all the workout gear cluttering up the place, lol!

    You are doing great - well done!

  22. I love that you have Mr. 92 and Mrs. 82 now *smile*. I know they must just love you too. I wish I could want to clean house but it's not at the top of the list just something I know I have to do. With everything torn up these days I don't really care lol. Way to go on your loss and on riding your bike to work, you are doing terrific.
