I will be so stinking thankful to have spring arrive here in Texas!!!
The treadmill sits on the back porch, as does the gazelle.
With the rains, the cold temps, and the wind?
Sadly, I have not used either one very much in the last 6 weeks.
Any day that the weather has broken and the temp is above my age, with little to no wind? I have been out there!
I tried it a couple of times when the temp was lower, or when the wind was just "lightly" blowing ... both times it set my ear screaming!
I have always had trouble with my ears, and it seems the older I get the easier it is to get an ear infection, and the harder it is to get over it. Sigh.
I have been trying to eat less, and eat better when I do eat.
Less sweet stuff ... more veggies ... a LOT less breads.
Limiting myself to one glass of tea a day, if that. I think I have had a couple of days where I drank 2.
Drinking my Cran-grape juice in the morning, my coffee, and sometimes a glass of Tang or 2 thru the day - simply trying to up my Vitamin C intake.
I've walked in place here in the bedroom a couple of times, not as easy as it sounds, but better than nothing.
And using my blue band for stretching and trying to build up the muscles in & around my knee.
I am going to press myself to do better at this in the coming few days.
I don't think I have lost any weight at all, but according to the scales I have, I haven't gained any either. I suppose holding steady is better than gaining. But still a little discouraging and disheartening.
I can't go to the gym, even though gym membership is covered, because my Captain Jack has been sitting for 2 weeks now due to a problem with it. Sigh.
I am SO thankful that in 2 weeks the time changes.
In just about a month is the first day of Spring.
And I believe in 7 weeks is Easter.
Warmer weather is close enough to feel it in my bones!!!
Things will be changing!!!
Momma, you're not fat. You're fluffy!
These were the words of my precious little girl one day many years ago. The innocence of a child. The words both stung my eyes, and warmed my heart.
