Pushing 50 Update: 03/22/2012

Psst... before you read, would you please take the poll in my sidebar?  Thanks!

If you read my last post "Pushing 50 is the Only Exercise I Get," then you know I am on a one year mission to get into shape before that dreaded birthday arrives.  I don't wanna be Fat and Frumpy 50, but rather Fit and Fabulous 50.  It's been a week, and I'm not there yet, can you believe it?  LOL  Nope, I have a long road ahead of me.  I've found myself wondering if a year is even enough time.  I need a LOT of work.

It didn't start out too well.  Actually I didn't start out to well.  Literally.  The very next day after I posted my ambitions to get it together, I came down with a nasty bug.  So much for exercising, organizing, and eating right. The bug had me down pretty much all weekend.  I really didn't even think about my new goals until yesterday.  I did get a hold of my hairstylist niece, and I'm hoping to get my hair cut Monday.  If I do, I'll probably get around to coloring it some time next week. 

I don't think I've taken any of my supplements all week.  Maybe once.  Not yet today.  I am going to have to add that to my "things to do" before I allow myself on facebook list.  

My laptop is broken, so I haven't researched any natural cures for asthma.  I'll get to it...

I did get an under the bed shoe organizer for like $3.75, and organized all my shoes!  Woohoo!  I have a tiny room and nowhere to put them but under my bed.  It's always been a challenge to crawl under it and find two to match.  Now I can!  I also cleaned out a box of papers that had taken on a life of its own.  It is now my "stationary" box, which is what it was supposed to be all along.  

I can't say I've done anything really fun with the kids.  Too much sickness around here.  (I wasn't the only one with a bug.)  Perhaps today I'll get outside with them for a bit. 

Yesterday I really did try to keep my food portions small.  I promise.  :)

I still haven't missed a day of Bible reading.  

Now for the big news.  I WENT TO THE GYM TODAY!!!  Yes, my dear friend Barb came and picked me up at 9:00 a.m., and off we went.  I only did 15 minutes on the treadmill, which was enough to make me feel light-headed and my legs feel wobbly.  But I did it.  I did it. I did it. I did it!!!


  1. Keep it up! :D And you can try what I do. I set a phone alarm to go off twice a day. That's my vitamin alarm. Although a lot of the time I just turn it off and don't take my vitamins. Though having them all in a pill-box ready to go does help.

  2. That's a good idea, April! I think I'll set my phone. :)

  3. It sounds like you've made some progress, Crazy Mom! Keep up the good work. I've fallen off the exercising last week and this week myself. Maybe you will re-inspire me! ;)

  4. Way to go! I'm with you, girl! (though 50 & frumpy- well, been there, done that!) I'm still working on my own diet- getting back on the portion control thing is harder this second time around. I'm going to the gym, though, 4-5x per week even! It hasn't resulted in much in the way of weight loss, but the inches are going nicely, which keep ME going. As for organization.... well, time for you to come for a reality tour over here. You'd feel better about your own house!
