This is significant to me today, in mid May I struggled to do .75 mile in 30 minutes.And today, i did a full hour on the treadmill at level 3.5 and higherSo true!Somedays, today!Posted a photoPosted a photoPosted a photoPosted a photoPosted a photoSomedays, lol.10 weeks working on a treadmill and I FINALLY was able to do a 20 minute mile. 🎊🎊🎊🎊Posted a photoBwahaha, if only!Getting old when you are out of shape, you have some hard facts you gotta face. A few months ago, I felt something on my thigh, hmmm. Few days later, there it was again...what is that? Argh.....the H O R R O R! It was my left butt cheek that had drooped and I could now feel it. Gasp, sobbing, denial. So, either I got it back up by walking(which I am firmly believing) or I am now so used to it, I don't feel it anymore.😂😂😂Yes, and I am slow on the treadmill.Seriously, if someone, and I mean me, can smell your perfume/cologne at 5 feet away from you, Y O U have too much on. AND, please don't climb on the treadmill next to me, I'm fighting for breath enough as it is.

I may even pull out my old Richard Simmons video 😂😂😂😂How I feel after trying new torture machines today at the gym 😂😁😂I was trying to wait a bit longer before I bought any new clothes, but I needed some jeans that weren't falling off of my behind everytime I walked 20 feet. Sooo excited, haven't been in a pair of Levi's regular 16 in a few decades. WIN!Hit my 1st goal, now on to goal #2So, so ready!😂Starting my vacation with a little walk down the beach😎So, I attempted, for the 1st time, shrimp spring rolls; not as good as my favorite Thai restaurant but not too bad either.

Blackeyed peas, 1st meal of the New Year to bring luck and prosperity.I've come a ways, 1st of June, struggled to do 1 mile in 25-30 minutes. I did 3 miles in 48 minutes today with a slower warm-up. YAY!My goofy grandson was my walking partner today.My neighbors mailbox makes me laugh everyday I drive by it to go to the gym.When you can have 1/2 of a pizza for only 400 calories, WIN! cauliflower turkey pepperoni 😍I wonder about FAT burning, do you think it is LIFO or FIFO ? I mean, is the fat I've lost been the fat I put on in the last 10 years or is it the fat that I've had for 45 years? Hmmmm?I bought a bike from a neighbors garage sale this weekend. I haven't been on a bike in about 20 years. Today, while looking back to see where my daughter was, I lost my balance and ended up in a bush. I was laughing so hard it took a few minutes to extract me out of it.😂😂😂😂Ok, maybe some of you sparkers can help me here. I changed my goal date and my profile started all over at my current weight and no longer recognizes that I had a starting weight of 231! What's up with that?No more bush landings, but I am bushed! Baby steps on increasing distance on the bike.Celebrating my youngest 21st birthday tonight, chocolate cake and a bottle of wine was involved. I. REGRET. NOTHING! 😂😂😂Transformation Tuesday. The 55 lbs loss is since from May 2017.

Really challenged my thinking on what I think I look like, halfway thru my goal.😁Had some young guys showing off their fuzzy new antlers tonight on my walk. 😊The Grand Ol' Dame and the Batchelor Boys on my walk tonight. Photo doesn't do justice to the white/silver pelt on the doe.TRUTH! Know thyself! 😉Twinsies tonight.😍 love walking in my neighborhood.NSV! Yeah, out of granny panties! The weird things you celebrate on the way to losing 100 pounds.😁I am hoping I will see some movement on my plateau. Treadmill, water aerobics and the zoo with my grandson today.Wow! I wonder how I missed the 1 year? 😁 I am quite happy that I have lost 61 pounds this past year. Not where I wanted to be in the year, but that's OK. I still have 40 pounds to go and my plateau is driving me nuts. *sigh* Onward and downwards (on the scale).Yep!The fawns in our neighborhood have been exploring a bit more with their mamas.😍Yep, somedays my ship doesn't come in...or I'm just at the wrong place.😁Truth!😂🤨Posted a photoOk, I know losing 65 pounds at my age, that loose skin would be an issue. BUT seriously, my left eyelid just drooped yesterday....ARGH! I think this is very much a NS aggravation. 😏Posted a photoPosted a photoI don't think I've ever gotten green across the board. I did 2 classes and the treadmill, I'm gonna feel it tomorrow. 😄Doing the trampoline park with grandson today, dang I'm old!😁Helping my grandson with his pyramid and costume project.I've been on a plateau for quite a while now, do I thought I would look at photos of how far I have actually come in the past 18 months. When I started I could hardly walk a Mile in less than 40 minutes, I now do a mile in about 16 minutes. NSV!Since I am of a certain age and CRS, I use pennies to keep track of my individual running minutes on the tread. Next goal to use nickels.😁Anybody else have to deal with all of the diet stuff for New Year's resolutions only to have walk thru miles of Valentine's candy shelves to get to the check out? Grocery stores are evil.😁Truth! And not just for today.Yay! Mini goal achieved: avg 15 min mile, next mini goal to run 15 one minute runs in a 3 mile set.Yay! All green today!💃YepI have a love/hate relationship with my Fitbit app. It holds me accountable like no other. I have been on a plateau F O R E V E R ! Well, duh! I have been exercising just enough to maintain and not lose. I had just 7 weeks in the last year that was green. SEVEN! Ok, new goal to have more green weeks than red!NSV! Yippee! Improved my time, was able to jog every 3 minutes for 1 minute. Of course, I was checking the timer at 40 seconds willing myself to get to 60!😁Oh!Clothing Designers, why?So trueHuh!#BeforeAndAfter
NSV! Increasing my minutes "running" on the treadmill. Didn't keep pictures of my pennies when I first started to add running to my walk in December, but I could only do 30 seconds at a time, 5 times in a 45 minute walk.TrueWhen I was grumbling today about someone at the gym, which was probably more thoughtless than deliberate rudeness, I saw today's message, my toes have been stomped on!Mountain Laurels and Bluebonnets in Texas in February love it, but also a warning sign that Live Oak pollen is soon coming.🤧#BeforeAndAfter celebrating 40 years today, just a bit heavier than when we were teens.😏 lolMy daughter asked the fam to do the glow 5k today at JBSA@FtSam. I think this was the 1st for most of us, and most of us walked it.😁Yep, new day, new goalsPosted a photoThe oaks have been dropping leaves this week, the green glow of pollen on all of our vehicles will be here soon.🤧😷. But, my neighbors Bluebonnets are really blooming.😍Not a great photo, but this red shoulder hawk was fussing at us yesterday when we were doing yardwork. Should've listened, I am sooo sore today.😂Bluebonnets blooming in SA 😍.
Love the non-conformist pink one. Stand out in your crowd.😁Trying to prepare for my town's 5k this weekend, no I don't run, but I think I need to improve my time. Taking spring break off from EVERYTHING last week probably slowed me down, maybe, not so much.😂😂😂Posted a photoPosted a photoDid our neighborhood 5k this morning, 2nd walking 5k for me, and 1st "medal", which I think is the cutest.😁Kinda bummed I only got 1 medal this week for walking a 5k.😁😂😁😀🤣And think of the calorie burn in the process. 😁😂🤣😂😁Working on a goal of having blue/green bars of calories burned to calories in, for an entire week. HOPEFULLY, this will get me past my plateau that I have been on for months.😏🤔 Burn more calories than you eat, who'da thunk it! 😂😁😀Lots of people in neighborhood for mass garage sales have the herds moving around late today. Couldn't resist the Bluebonnets and the LadiesPosted a photoTeehee, from yesterday. When I had some bad judgement on a snack.😉I think this applies to SPARKies!Ugh, losing and gaining the same 3 lbs F O R E V E R !Did our 3rd 5k, daughter runs, I walk. Took 7 minutes off my time from last month's event. Yay, NSV!Yep!I mean, REALLY? Argh!Ohmigosh, the struggle is real. I feel like...." HOW? HOW is this done?"Note to self: If you're going to start walking again after a month of wearing an ugly boot.... 1) pick a time when the humidity in SA isn't 150+%. 2) pick a time when the mold isn't a 150,000+ count. 3) pick an EARLIER time than I did today. Duly noted!🤪☠Uh-huh!Working on some xeriscaping ideas, not many steps, but working out for sure.This is a lone Doe in my neighborhood with her twins; one is very much the "runt" but she is the BOSS!😁 Silly things, I put out nutritional deer feed and they prefer to eat the sunflower birdseed the most. Me too, junk 1st, then the healthier stuff. 🤨😉😁Started painting again after about 20 years of not. Oh boy, trying to remember techniques. 😁 BUT, it kept me from snacking all afternoon, teehee.Yep!Wish I could say this is motto.....😁Posted a photoTook my grandson to the local aquarium today for some fun. #NanaadventuresHad to share this, love Beth Moore!Posted a photoThese 2 together, yummmm!This is true, been on this weight loss journey for more than 2 years, and my graph looks a lot like a stock market graph.😒😉😂🤣😃Posted a photoWe have a fashionista cat, she always wants to wear my flips.😂My happy dance this weekend...woohoo!Ugh!This pretty much sums up how I feel about gaining back 25 of the 65 pounds I lost about 2 years ago. I must log, weigh and measure out what I eat, because I have lied to myself about what I eat. DAILY!Had a fox come for a visit today, Mockingbird wasn't happy, but he didn't much care.😜Hate deceptive marketing on packages. On front of box, it said 410 calories, thought OK, a little high, but I can work it in for lunch. Sitting down to enter info and this chicken pot pie by Marie Callender is actually a whopping 900 calories for entire. The 410...not even 1/2. 😡It's rut season in South Texas. I'm Not usually able to get a good daylight photo of the guys. This one chased the Mama away from her food this morning.Sunday morning 100's of my neighbors woke up to some neo-nazi trash in their yards. Someone in my small town made up 100's of these. Love Hollywood Park!Rut season must be slowing down, he's taking time to eat. LolThe old guy showed up tonight with some of his ladies.Posted a photoMy ladies were hungry and confused, they've never seen snow. SA,Tx hasn't seen snow like this in a few decades.brrrrr it was 9* yesterday.
