Starting week two

Monday, January 20, 2020

Starting week two, and I am still having trouble getting that daily workout in- first thing in the morning I think is going to be the key. When I get up early before hubby. emoticon Starting a fitness challenge to see if I can get myself motivated to do the sweating emoticon & try using a daily workout to complete.
News at the doctors was good, blood pressure was good, and moods and mental well being have really improved with new medications & more social time. emoticon My medical doctor I haven't seen recently, but I know he approves of me trying to get my weight down and off of some of the blood pressure and cholesterol medicine. emoticon That is one of my long term goals.
I joined the Order of the Eastern Star with my Masonic husband. I am finally having some time out of the house with other people, and some social interaction. For some time I was very lonely and didn't have anyone, but my husband to interact with. I have been so much better since we have been getting out of the house together once a month, we also have a date dinner every month now (at the tap house) a little brew bar with no smoking and a quiet atmosphere. Both of these things have really improved my outlook on life and I am so much more excited to wake up in the mornings. Many women my age spend a lot of time with grandchildren (but both my daughters are single & not having children). What I thought I would be doing, I had to change my thinking and look to things that I can fill my time with that will give me purpose and enjoyment. The chapter has already blessed me. emoticon
Grocery shopping comes soon and I will finally have some better foods in the house for lowering my calorie count and eating more fruits and veggies. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Itching to get outside and shoot some pictures with my camera, but it has been excessively cold recently. emoticon Hope I can get out soon.
Hopefully I will see my first weight loss this week.

    My aunt and uncle were very involved in Eastern Star during their lifetimes. Mother was a Daughter of the Nile and daddy a Shriner. My sisters were Job's Daughters, me only briefly before we moved where they didn't have a chapter.
