Setting a goal for Monday, November 21, 2016
Thursday, November 17, 2016
I don't know how others list the weight they want to lose by a specific date on their page. Just about the time that I learn how to do something on Spark People, it changes. So l decided to make another blog and post it here as a reminder to myself.
Self, see if you can knock off two pounds by Monday. Handling Bayau on a walk is a workout. The kids in the neighborhood were getting out of school when I decided to head home instead of going on a long walk with her. One boy ran past us and Bayau wanted to run with him. I had her sit while he passed by.
I wish I could put her in the yard and that she could entertain herself. She does for maybe 5 minutes and then she is at the basement door barking to come back inside. I am hoping I will be very tired tonight. I also need to break the caffeine habit by 10 PM. I know that is also affecting my ability to get a restful sleep.
I dreamed I was lying on my side on the retaining wall at our old house with my arms crossed. A black squirrel was in front of me looking at me as it faced the opposite direction I was lying. In my dream, I tried to uncross my arms and couldn't for fear of falling off the wall. I was sleeping that way for real on the edge of the bed and flailed my arms out, hitting the night stand. No wonder, old people fall out of bed! Thankfully, I didn't see a squirrel when I woke up.
On Veterans Day, we went to Applebee's restaurant and our son went with us. We were told there would be a 20-25 minute wait to be seated. Our son suggested we wait in his car. I climbed in and saw him pointing at me. My husband was in the back seat and they both were laughing. I asked, "What's so funny?" My son said, "Mom's ready in the event we get rear-ended in the parking lot!" I had put on my seat belt while we were parked in the parking lot waiting to go inside.
