Working out

So after I began working from home babysitting I had gained weight back., and I was not happy with myself at all.   My weight loss journey started in 2002 and I had lost 73 pounds. I had gained about 15 back. So I had to make a few drastic changes.  And about 2 -3 months ago I joined our community center and go to the fitness room to work out. Usually I get 4 workouts sometimes 5 in a week.  Plus I have downloaded an app to watch how much I’m eating.   The good news is that at first I gained a little more weight before starting to lose.  And I started to go in panic mode wondering what on earth I was doing wrong. But after measuring I am losing in inches also.   That made me happy. And this morning?? How’s 3 pounds lost this week? Yay!!!
I wish I had a workout partner cause then your weight loss journey is a little easier, but it helps when I go the same time each day and the same people are working out, making it feel as if I do have workout partners and it sure helps me keep going!
And also I’ve been walking my dog one or twice a day as long as it’s not raining hard here.   I’m going to post a photo of when I first started working out in 2002.  I’m the one in the navy dress and then a photo of me recently.

A picnic in the mountains

On Sunday after church, my honey and I headed up into the Smokey Mountains to enjoy the beautiful day.   It was much cooler up in the mountains than it was in town.        
Ziva our new new adopted doggy came with us.   Here are some photos that I took.  More will come later after I edit them. Hope you can get a little feel of that beautiful day.

Sunday

Today has been an awesome day. It was my honeys birthday so I bought him a radiothat he can hook his phone to and play it through the speakers. And then his youngest boy came with us to church and our for a little bite to eat after church.
  We got home and changed into cooler clothes and Todd took me to the Tennessee wildlife bird sanctuary. We got a lot of good walking in and one you got to the top of the ridge it was the most beautiful view. Photos will have to come after I get them edited and to my computer. I love to be outside enjoying nature.
Hope y’all had a good Lord’s day also.
