Today Was About Priorities & Gratitude
Monday, October 01, 2018      1 comments

Seems like I have so many things to do each day between taking care of Dad and commuting to see him and keep him in supplies and taking care of my son's needs. He has a disability so has many needs that I have to provide. The major thing is he... Read more
Keep On Keeping On

Well the good news is that my sander appears to be working and the motor didn't get wet. It was a big mess but it's all cleaned up now and my DH did work behind the building so hopefully the problem won't happen again. Just the same I'll not l... Read more
So Far Doing Okay

I have been busy this afternoon cleaning up a small flooding mess in our workshop. We have had so much rain that the water has no where to go. My son did a lot of digging behind the building to create a better drainfield so hopefully that will... Read more

Well, I am back and embarrassed that I have taken such bad care of myself. I just hate to exercise and so I have kept myself busy doing everything else BUT exercise. I have told myself that I am getting lots of steps in each day -- but that wa... Read more

Well I did get on the treadmill and walk for 30 minutes and I did eat properly, but I know I need to do more. But at least I am developing some consistency. Today was a day that I mostly did things for myself that needed to be taken care... Read more

I am recording this a day late so that tells you how yesterday went. My husband went into afib and that pretty much dominated our day. I did the driving taking and picking up my son and brought a whole load of groceries in. The heat was at 96... Read more

Busy day but a good day. Ate around 1000 calories and walked for 30 minutes. I'm sleeping better now and that is a plus. Found out today that Dad's phone line is the problem and that won't get fixed til the man comes on Thursday. But we had ... Read more

Well, didn't do as well today but I'm still in the game. I didn't cheat on my food, but didn't walk as far as I should have. Still struggling to get my priorities straight. I did spend a lot of time going up to Dad's assisted living. H... Read more

For me success is exercising for 2 days in a row. I just got off the starting block so I will try for some consistency. Got to go help my DH now but just wanted to check in with myself as a motivational reminder. Hope you all have a great hea... Read more
Day 1 - Here Goes
Saturday, July 07, 2018      3 comments

This is so hard admitting temporary defeat but if I don't admit it then I will just have to stay that way. So this is day 1. For the past ten months or so I began having a series of UTI infections. They were painful and I made many trips to t... Read more

Okay Guys...I've been great with my diet and exercise during the day but at night I have to admit I'm a disaster. First of all I am a night owl and I love it. At least part of the time. I do enjoy staying up late and watching Netflix. But th... Read more

I am excited because each day is another day closer to my weight goal. I was on one of the Biggest Loser Teams and that really challenged me and got me moving again -- for that I am grateful, however, I found the pace a little too much and so I... Read more
Kind of a Gloomy Winter Sunday But Some Good News
Sunday, January 07, 2018      4 comments

The Good News is I am down another pound. Since I just got my diet and exercise program back I suspect this is just water weight. 2 lbs. in two days -- but you know, I'll take it. I have been busy today -- went to church this morning and too... Read more

Well, I'm back and have given things a little thought. Yesterday, I did get on the treadmill for 30 minutes after doing some Christmas returns and other errands. Today I'm headed up to Dad's with my DH to take care of some things in his assist... Read more

Friday, January 05, 2018      1 comments

I'm still reflecting on the past year as well as 2018. 2017 was a year of great change. With the loss of my brother in April it changed our whole world as a family. Such a great loss left a large hole in our hearts and required immediate chan... Read more
