FANTASTICALISTIC FRIDAY !!! Beware .. Sally's thinking and analyzing again !!!

Friday, May 24, 2019

Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!!

You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)

We also have ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks


Quiet day yesterday !!! But day 2 of getting 10000 plus steps in .. was a success ..

I've thought about it, about how to get out of this lazy slump I've been in .. and well -- there are so many things I COULD do, and so many things I SHOULD do .. People have been wonderfully helpful, suggesting I sign up for a "challenge" .. however .. Challenges scare me .. I'm one of those people that stresses; when I set something ... a goal, a challenge ...number of pounds down in x amount of time, number of calories in a day, number of this number of that .. I stress .. my life is far from "scheduled" .. and well .. the scales are fickle, and my hubby in his best intent, suggests something good, or I meet friends for dinner .. and my calorie count would be messed up (yes .. I'm anal, and that is not a good thing for challenges such as this .. lol) BUT !!!!!!!!!!!!!

BUT I figured one out .. once my friends posted suggestions about challenges ... I thought to myself ..and thought and thought ....and thought again ... and thought of a challenge I COULD work on .. and hubby would even help me ..:) (unknowingly ... lol)

My goal .. is to get at least 10000 steps each day ....

Day 1 - Wednesday - 14894 steps
Day 2 - Thursday - 13323 steps

Yesterday was a struggle .. Moving was a struggle, my legs felt like lead weights .. We went to Southridge and I did 2 laps .. it was struggle .. but I did it .. hubby did another lap before he came to "pick me up" .. I got home, and checked my steps .. (the only way I can do that with this stepometer is to download it) .. Normally it's a game .. but lately, I've been getting too comfortable with 4000 to 6000 steps .. so have lost the "feeling" of 10000 steps .. I'm glad I did download it, because it was only 5500 steps (and change) .. I still had 4500 steps left ..

So after I sat for a bit, I got up and got my shoes back on, and went out for a walk ... and it was tough .. hubby went with me .. but I wish he would have just left me go on my own .. I was starting to get tired from a short night of sleep the night before (late night), and well was feeling like that ... but I pulled it off .. with hubby's complaining, because I went to the next stop of my walk instead of where I was going to .. Good thing I did too .. because I made it to my 10000 steps .. and well .. the rest of the day was free .. (no .. the extra can NOT be overlapped into the next day .. lol)

So -- 2 days success .. I will get through this .. I will I will I will !!!!!

Last night was a quiet night .. hubby went to the Music in the park with his friends .. I had good intention to go, but just didn't have the energy .. so he went off on his own .. I got some extra steps, cleaning my sitting room windows .. inside and outside .. and making up a fresh batch of my hummer's food .. I noticed I hadn't seen them yesterday .. :( so I made up an emergency small batch, and put that out there. I cleaned out the first one, and will refill that today !!!

I also picked up some veggies .. I want to make myself a veggie crustless quiche; and maybe talk hubby into taking me to a mall, since it's a gloomy and rainy day .. *sigh* .. Yup -- he's taking me to the mall for a walk .. WHEW !!!!

I will have to make sure I do at least 4 laps, and wear my walking shoes .. (had walking shoes, but not my hearty ones yesterday and lead weights for legs) .. Today I have had a sound sound sound night sleep .. and I'm hoping I feel more energetic to do the laps .. :) We'll see ..

I'm letting you see my struggles .. lol lol

I will get through this slump ... I will I will I will !!!!! ONE STEP AT A TIME !!!!!

Good news is today my "toy" is supposed to show up .. :) My new laminator .. specifically recommended for my foil .. I can play with my cards !!!!

Wishing everyone a FANTASTICALISTIC FRIDAY !!!!!

Today is going to be a great day !!! How about yours !!!????

    My husband can get in the way sometimes too, but we are the lucky ones—- they care, even if the way they care is not what we want🙄. 10000 is good but may not be possible each day. The trick is to move lots and lrt’s hope the leg heaviness goes away.

    Yeah on 2 days of 10,000 steps and more! See, you’ve set a challenge for yourself, but you don’t have a deadline . . . maybe that’s what stresses you . . . deadlines. They do me. Good for you for working for those steps even when you didn’t wanna!

    Boy, that diagram of what success really looks like is spot on! Yup!

    OHhhhhh, new toy! Nice!
