Lucky Seven

Good Morning All, it is a beautiful fall day,
our weather has been amazing,
even though we have had some frost,
and most of my plants are done, the odd one is blooming,
which puts a real happy face on this chickadee.
So today here is a reminder to take time to smell the flowers...
or go buy some fresh flowers.
you all have been doing great.

So no tears to be shed here today. I have great news.
I have been feeling better, walking as often as I can,
and I just could not resist getting on the scale today.
I oops a few times this past week but when I did I walked on the treadmill.
So I have gone from 315 down to 308,
doing the happy dance,
shake, shake, shake my booty.
The good thing is I know it is not just fluid because I have been drinking my water.
All 8 glasses a day.

So I feel like I am making progress,
water is a big key.
Too often I would reach for a can of coke or diet coke,
but once I am getting in the habit,
I am actually starting to crave the water.
There should be a bolt of lightning right now,
because I seriously thought I would never crave it..
I have a bit of a funny story,
you all know I have Cataplexy,
I have learned this week, that when I go to fast on the treadmill....
which trust me is going about the speed of a turtle,
my Cataplexy triggers causing me to fall down.
It is so odd that when I  enjoy something and I am  happy,
that I always got to be careful of falling over if I laugh.
so I have a string I have put on the magnet that I can turn it on or off,
and then if I have it attached around my hand
the machine will automatically stop.
lol, no don't!
I think I look like a nutbar,
but better safe than sorry.
I hope you have a great day and wth,

  10. I am so friggin' proud of you. You will become addicted to water. I used to drink Coke like it was going out of style and I stopped and switched it for water. I love water now. It is my drink of choice.

  11. I need to go to water and give up iced coffee.If you can can I. :)

  12. Dee, I still have one cup of coffee in the morning. if I don't I am dragging my I tried and have just one in the am...I tried ice coffee but I compare it to dirty dishwater although I have never tasted it...ha, lol. I heard for every cup of coffee or tea you have, you are supposed to drink two cups of water. How are you managing. Hugs.

  13. Thanks Mami, I used to drink alot of Coke,,,put some of that with a rusty nail,,,all the rust is gone the next day. makes me wonder what it does to our bodies...I have been crushing up ice with my water, then almost something to chew on, then I think I am full. Hope you are feeling well, your in my prayers. have a great weekend.

  14. Gail, thanks I realized I had have you been feeling. The days are just of these days I will surprise you with a phone call. Wain is off for a week now, so not sure what we will do. I do know whatever I will be drinking will enjoy his beer. take care until next time.

    Joanna, high 5 and a thankyou.,hope you are well.

    SueAnn, I can't complain about it, I still get to do so much just much slower and more careful...besides having a pity party was lonely..until I got used to the idea. Have you been busy with all your art...have a great weekend. take care.

  17. I Wonder Why, hi nice to meet you. I had a membership at a gym once but you know I did not use it very much....back then I felt so out of place...I was the biggest one there....and I know thats why I went...but I really felt like it was more about fashion than any thing else...the next place I went was very different and I liked it..just easier for me now at home. Thank you so much for your support. always glad to meet new people. hugs.

  18. Sarah, I was so like you...the vision I have in my head is when my plants dry up and I give them some water, and suddenly they are perked up and look alive it must be a I tell myself...They say it takes 21 days to make something a habit...I am working on it. Thanks for your support...good luck with more water...Hugs.

  19. Linda, thank you so much. whatever has clicked it is working for right now...I have these little post it notes around my house. My hubby I am sure thinks I have lost it,,,but he is trying to be very supportive...He is like the water police. LOL
