It's a new day dawning

Well Monday has come and I have decided that I need to do something with all this insulation I have (my dads kindest words he could find to call me fat). I hate dieting and will not give up some foods. I know how to eat healthy and know how to cook it, but there lies the problem, it takes so darn long to prepare meals. But I have to I HAVE TO. So I have started a workout routine. OH boy I can barely type, I am so sore. Hubby and I have joined the local Wellness Pavilion. Just a fancy way to say gym. Now any of you that knows my hubby knows that a strong wind will blow him away but, his Dr. seems to think he can wait on the knee surgery (this past Jan he told us he would have to have the surgery this year) so he decided that strengthening it might be the best thing. (I really think that he is just doing this to help me out.) Before we moved here we had a hot tub and he has really missed that so sitting in the hot tub is one of the joys he will be experiencing at the gym. Me OMG I did that darn thing Elliptical (like a stair stepper) and in five minutes I thought I was going to pass out, but I made 10 minutes on there. Then did a few reps on each machine OH Lord I must be nuts, I hurt where no woman should hurt. Why oh why have I let myself go!!! Then off to the pool. I love to swim. Our old place had a pool I was out there all the time! I love water so in the cool pool I went and in half a lap I am dead, Thank the Lord it isn't that deep or I would have drowned. I did one complete down and back lap with one stop each way for resting and crawled out of the pool and sat in the hot tub for 5 minutes. Enough I want ice cream!. But instead had a salad for supper. Now sitting here I have had to get up twice or I wouldn't have gotten up and am wondering how I am going to make it up the stairs to bed?
I had great plans of posting pics of quilting rows I had completed this weekend but I can't take this pain in the everywhere so I have to go.
I will try to keep you posted on this New day dawning adventure. That is if I live


  1. Yesterday I decided to "do something" about my extra insulation too! I attached a pedometer to myself knowing that "active" is at least 10,000 steps per day - I had a whopping 3315 by the end of the day. I did skip the ice cream last night - sure wish I had a pool!

  2. I have that pedometer too but the darn thing wouldn't work have the time. I walk to and from work each day, its only eight blocks or so, and the pedometer read 4 steps. I knew at that rate I would never make it. So I don't wear it. Ice Cream is one of my biggest pitfalls too


Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you back again!
