Ok, well, a little of what has been going on by me...
I have joined the Sparkpeople bug! It is a wonderful site on the internet that tracks your calories and what you eat, for a healthier lifestyle.
I must admit, I love food. I love cookies, cake, ice cream, chocolate, and potato chips. But, sadly with age..it loves my body too!
I have decided to start eating a little healthier. Now, I must say, this is a bit hard, being used to eating french fries every time we eat out!
There is no greater word with conscious eating than the word "NO". You heard that right , "NO"!
I ask myself..."do I want that ice cream bar, well, yes..but, do I NEED it?" "NO"!! NO, NO, NO!
This has been working for two weeks so far. Sparkpeople is a great way to keep track of what you are eating, and tracks your exercise too. I haven't gotten as far as the exercise part yet..but hopefully one day soon, I will be tracking something. :)
Now, don't forget...you need the good Lord in this program too. You all know he is watching you and there right along side you! Yes, I believe in prayer when I am trying to lose weight. It truly helped me years ago when I lost a lot of weight and I thank God for his help. After all, HE is the one that created each and everyone of us!
Sadly, though, I have gained back and am on the road to becoming healthy once again. There is no time like the present.
Anyways, enough of that, I will show you what I had for lunch today:
So far I am down about three pounds. Not much so far, but it is better than gaining!
In the meantime, I am waiting patiently for the Fall season! I love to bake, and begun some baking today. I made Mexican Wedding Cakes and Pumpkin Bread..I added chocolate chips to my recipe for the pumpkin bread. Delicious! Now, I am trying my hardest not to nibble on these delicious treats! I made them for others to enjoy.
I have been stitching on many things..mostly UFO's. This is a little piece I am almost done with..this is the second time I have stitched this design titled "Black Needles" ..you can find the freebie HERE .
As I sit here typing, my Dear Husband called me to the window..Look who came to visit our front yard!
Absolutely breathtaking! What a pretty butterfly. Makes me happy to see it is enjoying the flowers we planted in our front yard!
Well, I am off to wrap up the baked goodies.
See you soon!
Raggedystitches and Blessings to you,
