Tuesday…

Another Good Day….do you get tired of me saying I had a good day all the time??  I don’t want to go over-board by saying fantastic, wonderful. over the moon day…but I am really having a great day most the time…LOL What can I say, I choose to live a positive life and make it the best dam day possible…food has been okay…I did have some ice cream and black berries…how can you pass on that….but just a small bowl…I am at 1132 calories…I have started my home exercise program…arms are sore, so I guess that’s a good thing…LOL  I have been following a fellow blogger, Billy over at…https://simplelivingover50.com/   his blog is about getting healthier, and staying out and in front of his DM, he has been talking about fasting and  the benefits that come with it…made me start thinking….I actually fast all the time…LOL  never even dawned to me…I rarely eat breakfast, just coffee and my vitamins….I normally don’t eat until after 12noon….been that way most of my life..so I am not sure it is working the same for me….I have always had trouble eating breakfast…food just doesn’t seem to interest me until after the morning hours….but am I hurting myself by not feeding my body in the morning?…believe me I am not really hungry even at noon, and it is a rare day if my tummy actually growls..hummm gonna have to think on this one….any ideas from you guys???.

Spent the day cleaning house…got a good workout in…vacuum, mopped, and dusted…even did some laundry…I was on a roll….LOL  then off to the store to continue to look for something for the Az room…we don’t want to spend a lot of money on furniture or anything else for that room…LOL it gets really hot out there since they didn’t insulate it…Nice huh…so we are not sure how well things will survive…so after many stores, and sitting in way to many patio chairs we ended up with a adirondack chairs and side tables, a type of wicker…but made out of manmade material…easy to clean…the fake silk house plant is coming back into my bedroom…I miss house plants…since we will be traveling here and there we can’t leave plants in the house to die…as it is I have 2 I have to carry along with me…LOL  the pictures on the wall are new, we are trying to keep it beachy, bright and happy…we also happen to have 30′ of lace on the windows…LOL  makes it a little more like home…

  1. I hear it is real important to get that kick start with at least a small breakfast, but really I have no idea as I’m not a nutritionist. I do eat an Activia yogurt and sometimes a Halo mandarin in the morning.

  2. kat, I think when to eat is different for different people and should be decided by you. For me, I take in a lot of calories first thing in the morning and eat every 2-3 hours throughout the day. I have my last meal around 5 PM. I like seeing the progress you are making both in yourself and your home. Happy Wednesday! 🙂

  3. Always enjoy hearing when people feel good. It never gets tiring!

    I am partial to 3-6 meals during a day. It is easier to absorb nutrients, keeps people satiated without hormonal spiking and keeps the metabolism revved up. Of course, each person is unique with different needs.

    Your place looks better and better each day. You have really turned your place into a lovely home.

    Keep enjoying life and LOL as often as possible! 😀

      • Since we have a wordpress relationship I would like to ask you a question. Naturally, you are not obligated in any way to answer if you aren’t comfortable.
        When my patients used to tell me they really weren’t hungry and kept their calories restricted (around 1200 calories,) I used to ask them why they felt they were not losing weight in the manner they desired. I have learned that perception and reality can vary greatly. You are active, happy, responsible about exercise and calorie consumption, yet something seems to be interfering with your goals. My question is, what do you think is impeding your progress?
        I ask out of concern and a desire to understand the complexities of people to better help those in need and looking for answers. Again, I completely respect your right to privacy and will continue our wordpress relationship regardless. 🙂

  4. Never get tired of having about someone’s good day! So much bad stuff happening all the time, it’s great to hear about the good. Breakfast is so important!!! How about trying a shake or a smoothie in the morning?

  5. I have the same issue Kat, have never been a breakfast eating person! So, I get it! I have my coffee and maybe some fruit if I can! But hard for me to eat before noon. I love the long curtains. When you said 30 feet I was like hmmm but it is so great to see! love the view and the stairs!
