A break….

Life is taking over and leaving no time for blogging on two blogs so for now this blog is going to take a back seat.

To keep up with Deb, check out her blog ….. Debs daily life.

To keep up with mine, check out my blog …. Healthy, Wealthy and Wise: NOT...but learning.

When time allows and we can give it our all we’ll be back.

Take care and have an awesome healthy life.

Just about Wordless Wednesday….


  That’s 9.63 miles walked today. Awesome!!!

One serving….

I have a question to pose……

Is one serving every going to be enough? I am trying so very hard to track (I keep forgetting to put it in myfitnesspal, sorry Deb) and measure and eat just one serving but it’s so hard. I do not get full on one serving of most foods. I know I can fill it in with salad but I don’t want to be the Easter bunny. I am always hungry. It’s not a bad thing, I just look at it every time my bellies rumbles it’s the good cells eating the fat ones and they are running for their lives but being hungry all the time bites too.

It’s just a question. Maybe I’m not eating the right foods and need to concentrate on lower calories with bigger volume except lettuce, spinach (all that leafy bunny food).

I did go with Caron’s advice and bought this yesterday….of course I can’t remember the name but it starts with an i and has a j in it too. It’s suppose to taste like an apple/pear. I’m game, I need something different.


And I’ve gone back to tracking my steps. Sunday was 9843 and yesterday…..


So I’m not doing bad. The scale isn’t moving much but I’m pretty sure the muscles are returning. Not tons of them but a few and they do weigh a bit more than the fat. My clothes are nicer too so that scale can just sit there and taunt me, I’m not listening to hard to it.

Okay my alarm went off 3 minutes ago, I’m suppose to be out that door and at the bus garage in a few minutes and it’s a 15 minute drive. Gotta go.

Take care my friends and have an awesome day. It’s going to be a good one, it’s time.

A new month …. already…

Well I lost 5 lbs in January and kept it off. So that’s my goal for February, 5 lbs and keeping it off. I’m not in a rush, it’ll come off and have to stay off this time. No more yo-yo losing. Why? Cuz I said so, that’s why!

My goal for this month is the 5 lbs and also to learn a new yoga pose each week and practice it. That will be four poses with the knowledge of how to do it, why it’s good for me and to do them all well at the end of the month.

I’m still keeping my tracking and menu work. I tracked for 21 days in a row last month, than 6 and will start again today. I got sick last week and missed a day and last night after falling out of my bus (see this post…ouch!) I couldn’t do a whole heck of a lot but ice/heat and sleep in my recliner.

So a new month. I also have to start working on getting ready for my first 5k of the year. It’s March 15th and Mike is going to join me too. YEAH!!!

So that’s my month. All manageable and doable. What do you have planned?

Blessings my friends.
