Time to join the Tea Gang for an other weekly jaunt around the world to find out what's in all the drinking vessels we show off. Today is a picture from this morning, the coffee cup is empty and the tennies are there waiting for me to put down the camera and put them ON. (My Grandma you have some big feet!!!LOL)
I had just finished my coffee (that's why the cup is empty) and was getting ready to start my walking routine. I follow Darla's blog, and she is so good about getting her walks in every morning and once a week shares them with those of us in Blogland. She has been my inspiration to get off my butt and start getting some exercise. I used to have a great walking routine until about 5 years ago, making 4 miles in an hour EVERYDAY, then I started having a foot problem, that eventually lead to surgery and the removal of a joint in one of my toes.....oh yea, that was painful. Since then I have become very lethargic and the weight has really piled on. I've tried about every diet out there......nothing really works long term.....but I do know walking works wonders and if I start watching what I eat, and when I eat, the weight will come off. So I'm putting it all out in Blogland to keep myself accountable......*grin*
So today, the start of my routine, I only walked about 15 minutes, and only covered slightly over a half a mile....:( When I got home I was a little depressed about the time and distance...but after thinking it over and remembering.....I cheered right up. After all I'm 10 years older and even 10 years ago I started small and work up my time and speed....so here's to my FIRST day of my daily routine....and thanks Darla!!
The planner, there on Betsy, is a new one I just started after watching Lindsay Weirich Video of a Cheap DIY Planner Tutorial. I've followed her for years, most know her as the Frugal Crafter. I have also decided I need to get more organized with my time, so that I get more done around here.......which will also keep me moving...win-win!!
I also have an other journal started, but not far enough to share this week. It is a Secrets Journal and I got the idea from a You Tube Video by Terri Kahns. The link will take you to the introduction, but there are quite a few videos on making the journal, the pages and......all kinds of goodies to add to the pages. I think I watched everyone of them. She made her first one on her weight loss journey, and that is what gave me the idea to make it an exercise/ weight loss journal. Something just for me...er....wellllll.......I'll share with all of you.......*grin*
So that's it for this week. The sun has gone down, and the heat is starting to dissipate, DH hasn't come in yet.......so I think I'll put those tennis back on and go for an other short walk, before it gets too dark.
