Good Day to you!

For my activity: Walk 35 min; Mowing/Cleanup abt 3 hours

Well--no circuit yesterday or today. I had to wo(man)handle the mower, which was a separate workout in itself. I realized just how bad it had gotten. The wheels turn, but the mower has to be coaxed up a slight incline. I guess it needs new wheels with some deeper treads for better traction. Hey I need some of those myself--haha!

Hi Greengirl! Looking forward to an update from you one of these days:-)

We're going to get some residual effect from Hurricane Ike tomorrow and Sunday--probably no big deal. We need the rain. Though it's not supposed to make landfall at more than a Category 3 or 4--5 is the highest, the warning for people on the Texas coast is if you don't leave, you risk "certain death."

I'll pick up some new glasses (spectacles) today--have been messing around with some multifocal contact lenses--have one more pair to try.

The will that yields the first time with some reluctance does so the second time with less hesitation, and the third time with none at all, until presently the habit is adopted. --Henry Giles

For my activity:
Mon: Walk 58 min
Tues: Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (18 min/3.5 mi)

Down a half-pound. Didn't do measurements.

It's good to get in some wt trng (Circ Wkt). Wt trng is very life affirming! And the fact of the matter is that not doing it is a bit of a deal breaker for me as regards weight loss. The older I get the harder it is to maintain muscle mass. It ain't gonna get any easier as the years pass.

Other things I'm doing: recording my blood pressure daily and drinking fat-free milk in my coffee yet again. I'm doing fairly well with my water intake.

Progress as of today: 27.5 lbs lost so far, only 18.5 lbs to go!

liza36 on 09/10/2008:
Glad to see you back! You've been doing tons of walking and that's good. And the scale rewarded you with a 1/2 pound. I used to get discouraged when I'd be down only a 1/2 pound, but soon realized that every little bit counts, and slow and steady is a good thing.

I hope your good days outweigh the bad ones! Have a good one today.

Getting older does stink doesn't it?.....For many different reasons, but we can at least make our quality of life better by being healthy as possible....

So, I'm 82 days older since my last entry. Weightwise I've been up, I've been down--like the ZZTop song--haha! I'm not the happiest clam, but I'm making good progress there. The bad days are fewer and farther between as time goes on. I know they're going to happen--just have to get through them.

I took my measurements twice in August and will do so again tomorrow. I'll weigh in too.

Plan for today: Walk

Don't be too hard on yourself!

Hi All,

I've been on here for so long and I consider you all friends (as much as one can do that over the 'net anyway:-)

I lost my mom a couple days ago after a rather quick illness. It wasn't completely unexpected owing to her age. The end was probably painless for her, but you never know. She was in great health despite something that had happened to her many years ago, which robbed her of her fierce independence, but she was happy and stress-free and got out and about as much as possible over the years with alot of help.

I'm doing well for now as I've been very close to everything regarding her for sooo many years now, but I'm sure I'll have my moments.

I appreciate DDs and every one of you more than you know!

I hope to be back in the swing of it eventually, and I look forward to getting back and reading about everything that's happened while I've been gone.

Take care and I'll see ya' all here soon!

abdab74 on 06/18/2008:
I am so sorry to hear of your loss and am glad you took the time to let us know. We have missed you! Take care!


crategrl on 06/18/2008:
I am so sorry for your loss. Hang on to the memories and good times as it is these that help me get through my personal losses. ((((HUGS))))


thinnsidenotout on 06/18/2008:
biscotti~ Have been in a similar place of losing one suddenly...Yes, your moments will come and it is o.k. to just let go when that happens.....We all handle such loss in different ways. Nobody can tell you how to feel or when to feel it.... and don't let anybody try to... I'm sure you won't!

Glad to know that you felt that you could share this, even in your absence lately.... Look forward to your return...

My prayers & thoughts are with you my friend...


maria777 on 06/18/2008:

thinnside40 on 09/07/2008:
Thank You so much for your concern..... Yes, I know that stuff is highly contagious and very dangerous..... I have thought this morning that I may just go ahead and put on the scrubs, mask, gloves and just stand at the door, not touching her or getting very close, but feel I MUST go see her, as her health is very frail at this time...She is only 45 years old and probably more scared now than every before in the last 16 years, cause she knows that the antibiotics aren't working.... I believe that her body has finally built up resistance to most antibiotics over these years and now options are minimal at best for treatment....... I sill be very careful and make sure to keep my distance, plus confer with the nurses station before going to her room...

Thanks Again!I really do appreciate that you are still reading and watching out!
