HELLo. Yes I am still alive. I haven't been in a blogging mood. I told myself that this weekend I wasn't going to do anything that I didn't want to do. I didn't make any plans at all. No Gkids sitting, no errands with an old person. Just what I want to do. So What did I decide to do?
Well yesterday was a good day. I was able to sleep till 7am. Not straight thru the night, but it felt great. Then I got up and went to TJ's Test Kitchen and looked for some recipes. I made list and went food shopping. I did not buy any tootsie rolls ( I haven't talked about those little buggers for some time. That does not mean they went away. I just try not to buy the bag of 400 very small ones...yes I said a bag of 400. Anywoo, Went on a good food shop.I spent too much money. I know have to eat in, because all my money is gone....lol. That's a very effective appetite suppressant. Then I was trying to decide what kind of exercise I wanted to do. I had planned on going to the office to walk on the treadmclimber, then my Sweet Angelene ( coworker, whom I adore )and I rode my bike to her house ( 1 mile ) and then we walked a little more then 3 miles. Se walks very fast, so good workout.
Then Loving Daughter called nd I found out they wewre driving in for a Bday party here in town. So I crashed the party for awhile. I played with,loved on and kisses those Gkids. Then I said my goodbyes and came home and napped and watched almmost the entire fourth season of Friends. Mindless, mind numbing. I didn't even make it to The Blindside yet. Went walking instead. I refuse to pay more then $5 for a movie. If I don't make it before noon, Mama ain't going. Did I mention I adore my loving Daughter as well.....lol
My boss gave me 7 psirs of size 12 capris. SEVEN PAIRS. I tried them all on and I could zip everyone of them up. Wouldn't wear any of them out in public just yet. 10 more pounds. Haing those new capris staring at me every morning is really motivating me. ALOT! I eat only good for me things yesterday, in moderation. So good for me. I feel more energized then I have for a while. Now I just need some decent fitting shirts. I could have shopped for a new church dress( NEED ONE BAD )but I hate to shop. I have to be in the mood. I wish I had a personal shopper and a stylist......lol.
I have more wearing makeup more. I am noticing that I am not sweating as much. Those of you who are new to the blog, I have had a perspiration problem. It really disrupted my life and was very embarrassing for me. I have not gone to church, because my hair wouldn't dry. Who wants to sit in church and look at the back of my sweating head? Anyway, it is very noticeably less. It must have happened when I wasn't looking. Which is kind of the way I lost weight. I just kept having more good days then bad days and I moved more.
Notice I didn't say TRY. I said I did. And that is the key to loosing weight. Actually to life in general. Wanto know?? It's ACTION!! I spent my entire life planning to loose weight. For some reason, at this time last year I started by just showering and dressing everyday. I started small. I then added in some more good choices. Then I started bragging about it on this blog. I got wonderful feedback. I made friendships. I lost weight. Last year would have gone by anyway. It does every year. I gained so much confidence and lost 75 lbs in that year. I sometimes struggle with my self image. I always will. Food isn't the problem. I am. This thing centers in my mind. I don't care what my ass says.
My blog is almost one year old. This is my 303rd post. Like I said. Start small, be honest(with yourself)and pay more attention to the way you feel. Not what those stupid scales say. I try not to let that one 'moment in time" make or break me. That is key as well, at least for me.
Keep the mood and the food real...........TAKE ACTION
This was a long post, and it's not even 7 AM. lol.
