The song played on the radio one day as I was driving to work and all of this movement just filled my head. I knew right then & there that I had to choreograph it or I'd never be released from it. I hope you enjoy it.
Yes, this past week was in line with the previous 2 weeks. I don't know why this month has been such a pisser, but it has. Oh well, 3 weeks down, 1 to go. Let's hope this coming week fairs better than the last 3.
I've been trying for at least a 500 calorie deficit/day these last couple of weeks and it's been working. It's been made a bit easier by an app I found on my Samsung phone that's pretty easy to use. It's the "S" health app. You can set up your profile, what your weight goal is and begin to keep track of it all. Food intake, calorie expenditure. Much easier than the other one I tried.
This one, when you type in something, it'll even display store brands as well as many restaurant brands and dishes. You can also set up "favorites" and custom foods and/or exercises. I did Google some specific activities I do for the approximate caloric expenditure and the app adjusts it for the actual amount of time you spend during the activity.
The app tells you, based on your goals, how many calories to consume and calories to burn per day. I have to say that it does help to look at what you eat each day. By that I mean write it down and really look at it. It can truly be an eye-opener,folks.
My sis is doing the Paleo diet thing which I believe I've stated in earlier posts, I'm not so thrilled about but... what can I do. People say I'm stubborn, they haven't met her! Yes, she has lost some weight too but I'm not cutting anything out that I want to eat, I'm just being more responsible about it
Sorry folks, I just don't like these fad diet things. Honestly, if you don't have celiac disease, there's no real reason to be gluten-free either. I'm just sayin'. To me if you break apart the word diet just take a look at what you read. DIE-T! No thanks. Common sense folks. Stop messing with your body that way. Just be sensible. Of the weight I put on after the surgery on my knee, I've lost 7.5 #'s that I know of. We'll have to wait & see on my next weigh-in.
Yesterday's activities were such a disaster. I was supposed to have my annual at the Dr.'s yesterday. Since I made the appointment on Mon. I knew the time I was supposed to be there. I never looked at my calender app for the time. I get there, check=in and the guy calls me back up to the counter and tells me I'm an hour late! Say WHAT?!? I look in my calender and I've got the time I thought it was to be in there. I wrote it while making the darn appointment, by the way. Trying to make the most of it, I make a new appointment for a few weeks later and then ask if I might just get the bloodwork taken care of today. He says yes, so I wait. And I wait, and wait and wait, 1.5 hours! Then, I'm told I have no paperwork for it. Aaaaggghghhhhhhhhh! I said, " I'm done." and walked out. such a waste of my time.
Now, I'm not sure which of us screwed up the time of the appointment but I really don't think it was me. I had that time in my head all 5 days of the week and then I had it in my calender as I thought, so..... I do remember that I had to spell my last name to the scheduler over & over again, At least 5 times. Remember how difficult my last name is E-D-E-L-E-N! Next, I go to my mom's to go to lunch and do her pills for the week, she's already had lunch even though I tried calling her 3 times and left 2 messages. Oh well. She said she'd called me but there were no calls to my phone from her. I text'd my niece to see if she accidentally called her again but, no. Who knows who she called, if she called anyone at all. Her memory is really going fast so it could all be in her mind.
I took myself out to breakfast and went home. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, home. My favorite place. I took a long, hot bubble bath and just tried to chill.
We've lost some amazing people as of late. Don Pardo, Robin Williams, Lauren Bacall. Now, 2 of them had a long, great run at life but 1 was way to young.
So sad to think that a being who brought so much joy and laughter to the world was so distraught in his own life and couldn't find some comfort and relief from the riggers of it all. RIP, all of you. You are loved and will be so sorely missed.
On a different note, I'm having my sis over for dinner tonight. I'm grilling a couple of Cornish hens on the grill. I'm also gonna grill some other chicken breasts and a steak too, for the rest of the week's lunches & dinners. Yum! I'll be using indirect heat for the hens. we'll be having a chopped salad, dessert and chow down.
I'm going to season the hens, well all of the meats really, with Buck & Judy's Dang Rubs, of course. The hens'll get No. 23 I believe. The sweet-hot one. She can have the seasoning. She'll bring her own dressing for the salad though. That paleo thing again. Ugh!
Well, here's to the end of August and to hoping September fairs better for me than August did.
Be well and peace out. But, most of all, keep dancing!
