Where did those 2 weeks go???????

Sunday, November 06, 2011

It's been 2 weeks again since I've blogged. Where does the time go??? I know I'm busy but this is ridiculous. My daughter and family have not even been here.
The exercise is going well. I have been out to walk almost every morning for the past 2 weeks. Started slow and have increased to a mile. Today I did some strength training. I have found over the last week that I have much more energy! YAY!! Of course, I hesitate to give the exercise the credit. Maybe it's just me! LOL!! I even bought an "underarmour" base layer shirt for these cold mornings. I must be committed--I spent money!
The energy increase has been a real surprise. I mean I feel energized!!!! Yesterday, with regular household chores, I was able to wash all of my windows and do some laundry, etc. Today I cleaned all the porch furniture, hauled it in and down to basement, cleaned the porch, and washed those windows on the outside......came in, made apple crisp and a chicken/sweet potato dish!! I can't remember the last time I had this much energy. I am pooped tonight but very happy with the weekend.
Tracking food and am doing well. The weekends continue to be difficult for me to stay on track. Seems I'm a little higher in my range than I would like to be. I need to work on that. I do fine during the week--just these blasted weekends.
Things will start to get really crazy again next week. The son-in-law will be staying with us as he goes to his training for the new job. A week off for me and then I'll head to PA as they do closings, movers are there to pack, etc. I don't want to think about it right now!! emoticon
So, all in all, I've had a good couple of weeks. Just need to keep it up!!

    I'm jealous. You are being so good and leaving my lame butt behind. LOL. I may need to borrow some of your energy. If you keep this up I will have to insist that you come here and do my windows as well so don't brag too much about this. emoticon

    Are you sure you are not on drugs?? LOL.

    Seriously I hope this rubs off on me. I'm a slug lately in every way.

    YES,YES,YES of course you can do it. When you write your blogs and tell all of us how well you are doing it you get twice the motivation. FeedBack and self esteem. GReat you did this blog I was wondering what you are up to. HUGS emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    That's amazing! You sound like Morticia, which is saying a lot! Whatever you're doing, I could use some of it myself!

    emoticon I'm so proud of you Beth. Yes, exercise and eating healthy will definitely give you more energy. I know what you mean about weekends as they are my trouble spot too. I did pretty good this weekend though. Just have to think a little before I put something in my mouth or in front of me and keep junk food out of my house helps, hee hee. Keep on blogging. I love them!
