What a beautiful morning! :) The sun is shining, and it's going to be in the 60* today...glorious I tell ya!
This morning I've accomplished--washing the sheets and remaking the bed. Giving Ella Bella's bed a good washing..Ron is taking her to be groomed. I've vacuumed and cleaned the first floor for the day. Our main vacuum is on the fritz so my wonderful husband extraordinaire has ordered new belts, and they should be here next week. We are doing some small fix it up projects today and heading outside to exercise. Since the weather is sooooo lovely we will probably wash all the vehicles and vacuum them out as well.
I can't believe how quickly the weeks of this new year are flying by. Before we turn around it's gonna be summer.
This week was a short one in terms of WW. Monday-Friday....I'm resetting my weigh in days and flex points. This week I walked 3-days for a total of 7 miles and lost 2 lbs in 4 days...not to bad. I really like WW, and I'm using the old points system, not the new points plus. I'm basically doing this on my own with a notebook and calculator and lots of exercise.
Today- no exercise. My left arm has been hurting for weeks now. I have an appointment to see my doctor next week, but after walking the last 3 days...I'm taking today off. I haven't hurt it that I know of, and it's in the muscle and joint. Who knows...but getting old stinks! My knees have also been hurting, but I've been pushing through the pain. I hope that I can get back on Mobic for a little bit and easy up the inflammation...probably arthritis. Yeah Me, NOT!
I'm am determined to loss this weight and be healthy. My goals are to be 160lbs by the end of the year. I know I can do this...it's just staying on course and since everyone in our house is dieting, exercising and such it's really easy.
So, that's my update for this week. I didn't use my flex points this week, but since this is a new week I'm going to use them up this weekend.
Today is Ash Wednesday 2014 and the official beginning of Lent. For Christians, Lent is the 40-day period of preparation for Easter Sunday. According to an IBTimes report on March 4, many Christians (mostly Catholics) will head to church on Ash Wednesday to have ashes placed on their forehead in the shape of a cross. The cross is put on believer's foreheads as a reminder of human mortality.
I can't believe tomorrow is Wednesday.....this week seems to be flying by. Today was frigid out. We awoke to -2 temperatures this morning. Luckily, the March sunshine melted what was left on the driveway after shoveling yesterday, and that's mostly clear now. The side-roads are another story. Messy and full of ice tonight. Tomorrow the public school kids will go 2 hours late...hopefully the roads will be better after the sunshine hits it tomorrow.
Today I accomplished--cleaned up the 1st floor, did a load of laundry, exercised, cooked dinner.
