Day 326  My Struggle………

Went to church this morning. Came home and I got sleepy. I fought taking a nap though. I cleaned the kitchen counter tops and laundry room instead. It was starting to look cluttered and I do not like clutter. 

I’ve done well on my calories today. I ended up going over last night. I knew I would regret it this morning but I still gave into my food cravings. Hopefully, not enough to effect my weight loss. 

I just finished getting in my steps with 65 active minutes. My husband and kids went down to the church with me to walk. It started out pretty warm but the clouds started coming in and it helped cool it down some.

All in all it’s been a blessed day!

Hope you have a blessed evening!

Thanks so much for reading and God Bless!

Day 319   My Struggle……….

Happy Sunday!

Hope everyone has enjoyed their day today. I had a pretty good day.  After church I pretty much took it easy.  

It was a beautiful, hot day. That’s why my youngest and I waited till evening to play games outside. We had three games to set up and play. We played volleyball, bean bag toss, and ladder ball. That was my exercise for today. The boys were four wheeling and my oldest had to go back to college for her job.

My eating has been good today. I did well on keeping my sugar low. That, let me have enough sugar grams for a treat. So, I drank a Yoo Hoo.

Have a great night!

Day 312   My Struggle…………

What another beautiful day! I guess all the rain we endured all week was so we could have a beautiful weekend. Thank you Lord for the blessed weekend!

I’ve almost got my steps in for the day. My eating is better but still not 100%. We had another family day. Today, we went four wheeling. No, fast food temptations just beautiful mountains. I’m at least under calories for the day!

I hope everyone had a blessed day as well!

Thanks so much for reading and God Bless!

Day 304   My Struggle……..

It’s almost midnight here and I’m exhausted . We went riding around all day. It was fun though . We saw some black bears, deer, and turkeys when on our scenic drive.

I ate horrible today because we ate out. I didn’t get in my steps but I did get in 9000 which isn’t bad for being in the car. I also got 25 active minutes when we got out and took a short walk.

I’m having a great weekend so far! How is yours going?

Night! Thanks so much for reading and God Bless!

Day 298   My Struggle…….

Happy Sunday!

Had a nice church service today. Then I came home and had a lazy day. The hardest thing I did was go pick zucchini and green tomatoes from the garden. 

I’m planning on waterproofing the deck tomorrow. I have a few things I’d like to get done before the fourth and that’s just one of them.

It seems like summer just arrived but it will be over quicker than I like. I am worried that I’m not going to reach my goal by September 1st. I’m still going to try though. There has been so much temptation for me lately. I love food but it sure doesn’t love me back. 

I was doing good when I was in this dieters group and everyone was posting and encouraging each other. Then one day it seemed I was the only one left posting. I’m not quitting just whining lol.

I haven’t got my steps in yet but I’m going to try to have them in before bedtime. I do have 30 active minutes from practicing a Zumba routine.

I better go get walking!

Have a great night!

Thanks so much for reading and God Bless!

Day 204   My Struggle……

It’s a lot cooler today than yesterday but it’s still beautiful. So no complaints. I’m getting ready to go to church for youth night so I thought I would go ahead and get my blog done.

I just came from on top the mountain. I didn’t have time to walk up so my son took me. Then I just had to walk down.

I took my blog photo on the way home. These poor dandelions have had a rough way to go. They survived the frost even though it was hard on them. Life can be hard on us but we have to be tough just like the dandelions. No matter what we’re going through we choose to fall or rise. I want to rise!

I weighed in today. I know I just weighed in Friday but it’s been a week since the no snacking after 8pm. I am happy to report I lost 1.3 pounds. I think I found what works for me. If you’re a night time snacker like me I really suggest you try it. Especially if nothing else is working for you.

I haven’t got in my steps yet but it’s early so I have time. I only got in my goal steps yesterday ,but I had to hot glue a lot for our craft tonight. I got the hard part done so they just have to glue a couple things.

I better go get ready for church!

Thanks so much for reading and God Bless!

Day 201  My Struggle……

Happy Sunday Evening!

Today was a good family day. We first went to church then town. 

Eating out was probably the hardest decision. I did manage to fight my hamburger and fries craving and get the grilled chicken salad instead.

When I asked for fat free dressing the nice waitress said” honey, you don’t need fat free ” lol. I think I found my new favorite restaurant.

Everyone got pie but me. I did get a small bite of everyone’s. It probably ended up being about a 1/4 of a pie total. It was nice to be able to try different flavors.

Tonight’s snack is my blog photo. I really do like the Larabar brand. There are so many healthy bars that taste yucky. I am glad I found one I like. The Kind bars are good too.

I don’t have my steps in yet but I’m going to work on it when I get home. I think I have about 4000 to get in which will take about a half hour. 

Hope you had a great day!
