Last weekend I headed down to my Son, Paul's, where I had a great visit with them all. Paul & I even picked up my sister Donna, and we all went shopping at Costco Kitchener together. A short visit with my sister, but still nice to see her in person.
This week I was very happy to have lunch with my Auntie Gladys, and my first Cousin, Cindy. They travelled up to Wiarton, and of course we had lunch at the Green Door Cafe.
What else have I been upto that has been keeping me so busy, one might ask? well I have been going 90 at trying to loose the 60 lbs I put on last year from all the meds I had been taking.
I have been trying my best to get out twice a day, however that is not always possible, but I have been usually getting out before 6 am for a morning walk averaging about 1.67 miles at a time.
I use two apps on my Iphone to track my walking throughout the day. One is Endomondo and the other is Pacer. Love both apps as they keep me on-track. I also use an app called "Fitness Pal" to keep track of my 1200-1400 a day calorie intake.
More info on Endomondo, *click* HERE, on Pacer, *click* HERE (free download app for iphone), and My Fitness Pal, *click* HERE. All these apps have been very instrumental in my weight loss endeavours. To date I have lost 17 lbs since February, and also some inches off my thighs, stomach and waist. Trust, you, me, it has been a difficult journey some days, but I am persistent as I want to get back at my "normal", or "old" weight.
What else have I been up to, other then the every day humdrum of housework? well I have been back taking a few photos again ...... while out on my early morning walks along the beautiful Colpoy's Bay.
This weekend is the Civic Holiday weekend. Our friends, Vicki & Doug arrived today to visit over the weekend. I am thinking the weather is to be amazing, so perfect for them to have a little holiday away from their home.
Speaking of friends, I think I will stroll on over to their RV to have myself a wee visit with them, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
Your photos are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
These days with the heat, it is wise to get out either first thing at dawn or in the evening for a walk.
So glad you got your mojo back Cindy! But don't go too fast, find the balance.ReplyDelete
Have you ever heard of Charity Miles? It's an app you can use on your phone while you are walking. Every mile you walk earns a donation to charity. Something to think about.ReplyDelete
