I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I made a commitment on January 2 to be active at least 10 minutes a day for the month of January.

Believe me , some days I did not want to do it but I got my butt up and did something. Last week when that cold kicked my butt, I still got up and did something. That something may have been walking, goign to the Y or just simply stepping or dancing in front of the television.

Total fitness minutes in January...675.

I do not have a total weight loss for January but I can tell you that I have lost 12 pounds since last being weighed around Thanksgiving.

Encourage me, please.

I had someone tell me they funeralized their sister in October. I was flabbergasted at the word thinking it was slang or a make believe word. I looked it up and it really exists.

The other definition is to officiate a funeral.

I am still alive

Wow! I did not realize I had not posted in 10 days. I have been meaning to do it for several nights but then get busy and don't. Also my new keyboard's space key is not very good. I have to press hard to get it to work or spend lots of time correcting what I typed.

I joined a challenge on sparkpeople.com that challenges me do some kind of physical activity every day for 10 minutes in the month of January. I am proud to announce this is day 6. I also have been to the Y , three times since Tuesday. On the days I have to force myself to get up and do something, I choose to walk or dance in front of the television for those 10 minutes. Most of these times I have kept going for longer than 10 minutes. Go Me!

Today I went to the Y for family day in the pool. I tried to swim some laps but had to stop because my swimsuit was falling off. I have a two piece, no not a bikini, and the two piece is getting a wee bit big. So every time I swam the pants would fall off. I was so proud of myself for trying but have to find my old one-piece before I try that again.

I had a blonde moment this evening. I have to check a website to look for schools for me to substitute at on any given day. Well I called the # this afternoon instead of doing it online. I accepted a job at my least favorite middle school. I thought it was a two day job for Wednesday and Thursday. I kept refreshing the page this evening looking for a job for tomorrow. I kept getting " No Jobs Available at this time." I was getting frustrated. I went back to look at my future jobs and noticed that job was for tomorrow not Wednesday. I was getting stressed for nothing. Now I just need positions for Wednesday through Friday.

Well, that is it for me at the moment. My bed is calling me.
