Good morning lovely people,
I hope everyone’s staying out of the snow and cold today. We won’t be so lucky because we’re at below freezing temperatures. But, hey, us Hoosiers are used to the “50 shades of Winter”, next week we’ll back up to 30’s and 40’s and we’ll swear it’s spring time, lol. I can’t wait, then I can get my truck washed!!! Well, I’ve been slacking here as far as writing my blog posts because I’m a slacker, no excuses. I worked out Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday of last week, which makes that gym days 19-21, so I’m still on track and still focused. I’m really trying to go more days out of the week, but with this weather it’s been so hard to even go to work, let alone, to the gym. But, at least I’m making it 3 times a week, which is more than I did last year, and the year before that, and the year before that. That’s how I got into this fat mess as it is, so I’ll be happy with 3 times a week. I can also be proud of the fact that I’ve been working out 9 weeks now!!!! I’ve only lost 9.3 pounds, but I’m doing it the right, healthy way, and I can be proud of that. NO fad diets, no diet pills, no starving myself, all the good stuff for me folks from here on out.
I will say that I did get back on one of my blood pressure pills, because I’m concerned, that my blood pressure isn’t going down, it’s the same pre-hypertension stage that’s it’s been but it hasn’t been going up, but I thought that if I changed my diet and started exercising that it would go down, but it hasn’t budged, so I’ll do the right thing and keep up with my Lifestyle change and maybe I can get off of the meds when I’ve lost some more weight. I mean the last thing I want to do is have a heart attack on the elliptical. Sometimes I try to forget that I’m 41 years old and I have a family history of heart disease, so I better stop playing around, huh?
So, no Valentine’s Day plans for me and my singledom lifestyle, lol. But, I will probably have to chauffer my daughter on her date, awkward right?? But, it’s all good. I’m truly enjoying this single life and I’m very content, maybe that’s what a bad marriage is good for, making you appreciate yourself and becoming a better you on your own. But, to all you couples out there enjoy Valentine’s Day, and remember, it’s the thought that counts.
Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. (Romans 12:9, 10 ESV)
