Hi y’all! Today we did 56 minutes and 1.82 miles. It feels so good every day to walk! When I said yesterday that I really need to do this every day and not miss it because it bothers me if I do, I was serious. It also has a lot to do with the company that I have on the walk too. Yes, with my daughter, and I love our little talks and things. We were talking about a variety of things today but I still think I am going to add an additional PM exercise to my routine, and we had thought about commandeering Jeffrey to walk with me in the PM for a while. I haven’t added anything to the PM yet because I tend to get busy in the evenings. I will have to do like I have the morning walks and just make time.
I truly notice that I have more energy and I don’t get as tired as I used to. It is easier to walk and do things now than it has ever been and I really look forward to see how much better I will feel when I get another 20 pounds off! One way I notice that I have more energy is that when we come in from our walk, unless it was absolutely roasting outside, I come in and don’t even have to sit down and rest. I just keep moving on into whatever it is that I need to do. That is pretty impressive considering that a few weeks ago I was huffing and puffing. Also, Monday will start week 7 of diet and week 6 of exercise! I can do this and get it together!
I also changed my eating times and that has helped too. I have been successful with dropping the toast in the mornings and also when I eat at a function or something I can eat a reasonable amount and stop. I have also noticed that my appetite is regulating too. That is a blessing for sure! I have this thing whipped! I know I will succeed this time with getting healthy, without a doubt!
I am sure my post yesterday made a few of you wonder about my sanity. Let me assure you, boredom leads to many things and so does creativity. Sometimes I think that boredom and creativity both border on craziness. I come up with all sorts of stuff that I really ought to write in books. And for those who were wondering, we did name a new Leaf today, Leaf 3.0. Anyway, one of our conversations today was about arguments, and specifically what a mini argument entailed. I was not aware that the term for a mock argument was a mini argument. It is apparently when you and your friends argue back and forth, but it is only acting silly and like you are arguing but not really arguing. Ok. I have done that forever with my friends being silly but I guess it is called something else by everyone these days. Just goes to show I am not the only one reinventing and renaming things that people have done for decades. 🙂
Speaking of my daughter, I hope she gets her picks done for the Liebster award. I loved having to look over all the new blogs and stuff that are out there. I spend so much time trying to find places to list my own and I keep forgetting to find new ones to follow and read. I need to do that more. I just love the idea that the people who are reading my blog are growing. I gain a few more followers every day! Thank you to all who follow and read my blog!
Our cats have almost stopped walking with us. Zippy was coming with us today but got scared home from traffic. Jetty doesn’t go much anymore but when we get back, he does run out from the driveway to meet us. He is so cute–he looks like a big lion running down the road! He has a different colored mane under his chin, if you will, and he is just cute! And speaking of cats, Annie’s new cat, Dallas, had made itself at home and climbed up and on my shoulder, and now it is hanging out on my lap . Yes we are critter lovers! Here is Dallas. Dallas is just a little bitty baby, but is weaned.
One exciting thing that happened today was I have my first Bloglovin follower! Thank you for that!
Now for another exciting part of the day! Anyone other than me watch Idiotest? I absolutely love that show! Some episodes I’m an idiot, others not so much. I decided this morning that I would tweet to Ben Gleib and tell him how much I loved the show. And guess what? He responded and favored my tweet! Absolutely made my day! Then just a bit ago Idiotest tweeted to me too and favored my tweet! Holy smokes! My day really was made! I was out there retweeting these things and was so wound up I spelled his name wrong and had to retweet it later. I thought, man, I am truly spelling like an idiot. But I did get to correct it! Anyway, here is a screenshot of all of it.
Just how awesome is that!!! Really made my day. Thank you Ben Gleib and Idiotest!
I better hush for the night. I have my end of the year paperwork for church to send in. Y’all have a great night!
