Smoky Thursday

With all the fires burning in California the wind is blowing smoke our way.  I really feel for the people who have lost their homes…and the fire fighters, really bad this year…the sun was so orange when it set the sky looked like it was on fire too…Hopefully the cooler weather will give them one up on the fire….

Well Thursday was a very good day….cleaned out the garage, well all the old boxes and recyclables, took all the bottles and cans to the recycle center, made 40$ dollars, went out to lunch on our big wind fall…LOL  got a little more packed for our up coming trip, my cousin came over and got all the scoop on the house, she is house sitting for us while we are away…

Food was good…I find that I have stopped eating at 3p the last couple days…full, no need to eat more, calories used…I am still using the popsicles in the evening for my evening food addiction…however I have noticed that I don’t have any urges to eat anymore in the evening…yay…another step in the journey….sometimes my mind floats to the thought of popcorn…but since I have a new partial in my mouth, popcorn has not been my best friend, LOL….so that was for the positive….because I love, love, popcorn anyway you want to make it…

I am at 1126 calories….I did have rice today so I am feeling a heavy tummy this evening and it tipped the scale a little and low and behold I thought I was drinking a zero vitamin water I bought, but I realized halfway through it I grabbed the wrong bottle, its a vitamin water, frigin 100 calories each…Ahhhhh so there went another chunk of useless calories…oh well teach me to pay closer attention….

Exercise, well I am trying to change my thought process and make it more about my health and the positive that comes from doing it…and not the negative thinking….so my newest mantra instead of dread, is yay its time to exercise my joints, loose my weight, feel better, move better, a quote from my friend Billy @                        http://simplelivingover50.com/2015/08/06/the-type-2-balancing-act/comment-page-1/#comment-5391    ” My workouts are not a task, but a labor of love”     this is just a line from his post today and it hit a nerve, made me start thinking about how negative I have been about my exercise…so Thank You Billy for you wonderful post and positive out look on life….I am still doing my exercises through out the day to keep all the strain away from my joints and its working….and I have switched them up a little…added in a couple sets of core…we will see how long my knee will tolerate it…..

Until tomorrow…..

  1. Over the years I’ve found myself saying a certain mantra, in a very snarky sarcastic way, that eventually makes me laugh at the seriousness with which we all take the pain in the ass stuff…”I love my life”
