weekly weigh in

6 tips for weight lossIt has been a better week as far as fitness goes. ...not where I want it to be but better.
I made myself go to the dentist. I was not having any pain it was just my 6 month check up only I was nearly 2 years late! I hate the dentist, I get so nervous and scare but this time was different. Good news is that they found no new cavities, there was no new decay. I guess 2 years prior they planned on giving me a crown on my back tooth...they were just going to watch it closely. well when I had my check up this time they actually took the crown off the treatment plan. They said all my teeth look good! As I was sitting in the chair listening to this good news it dawned on me that it had to be my diet.  I use to eat laffy taffies or sugar daddy's, hot tamales, blow pops, diet coke, etc.   I can remember feeling sparks of then I would just chew on the other side of my mouth....can you believe that?
And for the past 9 months I don't include any cookies, candies, pops etc in my diet.
So there is another benefit of a good diet. Those junk foods are just JUNK! They are so bad for your body, your complexion, and your teeth!     I even read a few articles that say sugar will turn into acid and stick to your teeth and turn to plaque (maybe not in that order)   Anywho, it's enough to make me stay away from it.

I don't like looking at swim suit models for inspiration, I think they are all photo shopped. but this one looks real because you can see the crease in her stomach. Maybe I can look like that this summer? Its something to strive for....for no other reason then taking on the challenge.

Ok,   so this morning when I got on the scale it read  146.4 lbs.    Last week is was 147 lbs. So hey, I went down  .6lbs!

This week is going to be hard because its that time of the month for me...You know, where you are in a bad mood and have the munchies!!! EERR I hate that!

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
