nativeamericanwomanandcanoeanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567

It is a sunny morning here in South Carolina supposed to get into the upper 70's fahrenheit, according to weather channel on tv. 

I weighed 163.2 on the scale this morning, so down a little more.

....................................

I am planning on working in the yards and flower gardens again today.  They are looking better so far.

Hope you have a blessed day in the Lord. Every day with the Lord is a GOOD day.

Good morning, everyone!

Hope you are doing well this morning. It is another beautiful SUNNY day here in South Carolina and supposed to get up to mid 70's degrees fahrenheit again as yesterday, according to the weather channel on tv...

coffeeyellowmuganimgif.gif image by autumn1234567Having cup of coffee...have a cup?  I'm drinking mine black today, no sugar, no creamer.  I've already had breakfast...scrambled egg with cheese and turkey sausage.

Weight is down a little more...163.4...

Yesterday was a LOT of work in the flower gardens and yard.  Cleaning out leaves from flower beds, taking up the old discolored red mulch from them and raking up big piles of leaves in the front yard that have fallen this year.  I got a lot done before Hubby came home from work, then after he got home, we worked together and he took off lots of bags of leaves and old mulch to the trash dumpster a couple miles away.

 

I also went to the grocery store yesterday..

Later, I went to check on Mom, after I got a call that she wanted me to come to the nursing home because she was not feeling well and I talked with her nurse and also the head nurse, who didn't think she in great distress...and asked them to give her something to help her, which I waited and didn't leave until they did.  The head nurse said she would order an exray just to make sure Mom ok.  I didn't leave until Mom said she was feeling better and that she wanted to go to sleep.

Came back home, cooked Hubby's and Daughter's suppers and after Hubby came home and ate, Hubby and I worked a long time in the yard together and there is still MUCH to be done.

coffeeyellowmuganimgif.gif image by autumn1234567Having cup of coffee...have a cup?

 

Plans today are to work in the flower gardens.  I need to clean out leaves, take up the old discolored red mulch, and put fresh new red mulch down.  Also rake the leaves up in the yard that have fallen this year and take them off after putting them in giant leaf bags (this will take some days of work).  (We have lots of trees.)

 

After this, is a need to go to the grocery store... 

Later I want to get my bike  photo Bike w wheels spinning and pedal pedaling_zpsmd0dm9eq.gifout of Hubby's building out back and get the tires aired up so I can begin riding it again.  I am so happy it is springtime and warm and the flowers are blooming and so colorful and pretty to look at and smell the sweet fragrances.  We have our annual Springtime Flower Festival coming up next week at the local Farmers Market not far from here that I am hoping to attend with Hubby.

Good morning, Friends.

It is a cloudy nice day here in South Carolina and we are to get to the low 60's Fahrenheit this afternoon.  It is currently in the mid 40's with rain almost here. 

nativeamericanwomanandcanoeanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567

I am at 164.0 on the scale this morning, bmi 24.9, which supposedly puts me back in the 'normal' weight zone. Wow...I am no longer overweight???  My weight is now 'normal' again?  Also, I have a wonderful neighbor/friend that is like family to me and she has been coming over off and on, checking my b/p and it has come down some, so hopefully when I go back to the doctor next week, it will be normal and not high as it was a couple weeks or so ago when I was told I'd have to come back for my bp to be checked again and see the doctor concerning it. 

I was careful yesterday, had about 1300-1400 cals and I've been walking a lot lately.  This morning I am wearing very comfortably another pair of jeans that had been too small to wear for a long time previously.

HubbyLargeManWaving.gif image by autumn1234567 and Daughter and I went to church this morning. It was a wonderful service and good fellowship with our Brothers and Sisters in the Lord there. 

 Afterwards, we three ate at a buffet restaurant together and then visited MomIndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567 who was sleepy so we didn't stay long. We made sure she had what she needed before we left the nursing home...

It is a beautiful, sunny morning here in SC...a good day to work in the flower gardens...

Please pray for a Brother in the Lord/part of our family who has gone to the hospital. He is our Assistant Pastor at church. Please pray for healing for Him.

..................................

Lots of flowers are beginning to bloom here. Hubby just recently bought me a beautiful pink hanging flower that is in full bloom by the front door steps and the winter pansies are still in full bloom as well.

nativeamericanwomanandcanoeanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567

Weight is up a little...I weigh 165.8 this morning....I've been good but I haven't been 'perfect'...Having reached a high of 172.2 earlier this year, this is still an improvement thus far....

I am still working on getting blood pressure down...eating less salty foods...trying to lose weight...not letting what negative things I hear stress me out...gotta go to the doctor in couple weeks or so to have bp checked again and take it from there if need be but I am believing it will be fine and Hubby is, too...

 

Hope you've been having a blessed day.

don't worry too much about the number, rather than eating right and getting in some exercise. if you can increase your veggies and exercise, the weight will come off :)

Good afternon, Friends.

We are having a RAINY day here in SC today and chilly...50's Fahrenheit.

Well...today has been a good 'eating' day...I have eaten well but not gone overboard today...and I think that when I weigh tomorrow I may be down another pound at least.  Hubby made the remark to me that he knows "You haven't really been trying" (to lose weight...)...  And he, of course is very right..My effort has been mainly in the exercise (walking) department....so today, I've put more effort in my not going overboard eating...I had a good breakfast and a good supper and that is it for food for today.

..........................

Hoping you are having a blessed day.

Good morning, Friends.

Another very beautiful morning here in S.C....sunny...birds singing lovely songs in the trees...supposed to get up into the 80's today.

Well...scale has finally moved and showing improvement, down -1...I weigh 165.4 this morning.  Although I believe it should be actually lower, I'll take it.  Sure takes a LOT of work to be down just one.

Still walking every day.

Congratulations, Maria! You're losing very consistently, so that's good. RE your previous question, I don't have any DIY experience with wood floors. We hired a company to refinish the ones in our rental house and they came out great - they were in pretty bad condition prior to that. The ones in our current house could use refinishing but they're not terrible and I think the project is to big to do ourselves. I do have a buffer/polisher and recently cleaned them with that and it works pretty well. Are you thinking of installing wood?
