picture of my great nephew. 3 months but just got the picture. he is just adorable' life just keeps going on and on. seems like only yeterday that i was having babies myself. time really bothers me anymore. i have so much that i haven't accomplished yet.
my body is just falling. 61 isn't that old that i should be feeling this way. a year ago i was able to put all my walking miles together , now i have to split it up over the day. God has blessed me that i can still do that but think what i could be doing now if i could put it all together. but let's not talk about the shoulda--couldda--wouldda's
something i was reading or watching on tv, can't remember which, has really started making me feel differantly thhan i used to. my insides want to feel better than they do now. which means changing my eating ways, and yes, i guess' even in exercising.
everything we read these days contradictes what the other says. one day eggs are so good for you the next day it is eggs will kill you. carbs will cause diseases, no they won't . what do we do.
can you think back to your grandmothers days? i sure do wish things were alot like they were then. no high filootin machenery like dishwashers, microwares, mixers, well you get the picture.
i can remember my grandmother asking to go out and get the good tablecloth off the clothesline and it broke. i was so scarred grandma was going to spank me. i didn't tell you it was in pennsilvannia in the dead of winter. i will never forget it. i laugh now but back then oooooooooohhh!!!!!!
go fpr a walk in the park and just find a bench and watch people for awhile. we are in such a hurry. i guess that is one thing i am happy about getting older. cause i can just sit back and watch . fathers that have no time for there family, mothers working two jobs with no time for her children. it is no wonder kids are like they are today. they have no guideance. i was lucky, i was a single parent and i had to work two 8 hour jobs. i was never home. but my children didn't go out and rob or kill....... they may not be college grads but they are getting into trouble either. emoticon emoticon emoticon
back when i was a child i had a mother who stayed home. but life was so different back then. i could walk down the street at nite and not be afraid. i could go riding my bike in the woods and not have to worry about being killed. it was all so peaceful. i could go on and on but i must get back into the present of this hurry hurry world.
i don't know for sure how things are going to change in my habit, but God made me be this way for a reason. so with God and sparkpeople i will get a better focus on losing this mess i have gotten into. God bless you all who read this cause it was just a step back in time

sometimes you just have to stop and smell the roses emoticon

    I enjoyed your blog. I sure wouldn't want to give up my dishwasher. When I was a kid, that was me and to that I do not want to go back. The safer times for children I do miss.

    I liked your trip down memory lane Marge...was very similar to my thoughts and feelings over the past few years.

    You can do it...you are recognizing the need as is your body. So keep doing the walking as much as you can, purchase healthy at the grocery store and last but not least congrats on your sweet great grand nephew...what a cutie he is!

    I hear ya! Yes things are different but it doesn't seem like all that long ago...
    My oldest daughter will be 37 and is feeling old - I remember when I was 37 and it doesn't seem that long ago...
    I remember too and you can do this - following the SP plan works - eat a balance of food - measuring true portions and counting calories - Oh yea and staying within your calorie range will help tremendously and of course the walking you do is great! Add some strength exercises from the exercise demos will make a difference as well.

    Life was much different years ago in many way. I love the conveniences but miss the relaxed atmosphere.
