weigh in

So today is saturday its the end of the week and I weigh 147.8!!! Not a very good # but what can you do?The reason why I'm not so angry is because last night I got a compliment. My friend asked me what I was doing because I looked really small!   Take that Scale!!!  I'm starting to realize that the scale is always going to go up and down regardless of how my clothes fit. And I love how my clothes fit right now!
So here is a recap of what I did this week.
I didn't do as much cardio as I wanted. Wednesday and Thursday I did not work out at all!!!There have been some changes at my work and I just didn't have any time. So this next week is definitely going to be better. I'm not going to let the # on the scale bug me. I'm just going to focus on 45 minutes of cardio and also strength training on Tues & Wednesday.

So my blender went out on me and since I have a smoothie every day I had to run out and by another blender so I went with the Ninja from Bed Bath and Beyond.  It's nothing to brag about but it does the job.

Here is a new use for protein powder. I just put my coffee in the blender with 1/2 scoop of protein powder and a little bit of creamer, just blend it for a couple seconds and it tastes so good and frothy. And you've got protein first thing in the morning!
So my main goal for this upcoming week is going to be cardio first thing in the morning.
I'm going to go to the gym at 6:15am (ouch) on Monday and Tuesday. (taking small steps)  But think how good I will feel when I follow thru and meet that goal, its my mini goal!
So just to be clear...This weeks goal will be:
Cardio 5 days this week.
Strength training 2 days this week.
6:15 am cardio on Monday & Tuesday.

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
