I have a video later this week on
how I did this beautiful background.
Hope you enjoy your Sunday with that special man in your life .
Yesterday we went on a mystery ride with our Ladies of Harley and we all had so much fun!
We had (3) stops 1st stop was at a Leather shop which was so awesome!
I got a new sparkly hat and a new headband ( shown in photo below )
Then we were off to our 2nd location which was lunch at Waltz Inn so yummy .
We all got a group photo on the porch after we ate
Glenn is usually our group photographer ( inside joke) since he is so good at selfies LOL!
But look who graduated from Glenn selfie school academy 🙂
MY hubby . …He rocked the selfie group photos .
The 3rd stop was for Ice cream at
Calder Bros. Dairy farm which was so so good .
Today for Fathers Day we will be heading out on another
Harley ride with my cousins later this afternoon.
Destination unknown just enjoying the ride and company just like yesterday .
Yesterday for our ‘Day Off” for eating
I got him ( and I of course) a Ice Cream cake from Dairy Queen .
Here’s a photo of the cake and a couple other photos from our day on Saturday together .
New Headband and Sparkly hat and Hubby’s cake says
World’s Greatest Farter… I mean Father LOL!
Yes he loved it !
I thought I better take a photo of it before we got into it because it’ wasn’t as pretty after LOL!
I actually bought it Friday afternoon
so we could have it for our morning breakfast Saturday ( off day) .
Our thinking is having a “FREE Day” has NOT effected our weekly plan
(2) reasons why it’s working for us
#1. Day off gives us something to look forward to,
plus it’s teaching us delayed gratification
nothing happens over night like everything else in the fast pace world we live it .
( email/ texting/ Facebook/ etc…)
losing weight is NOT an over night process
( I wish it was, Trust me I wish there was a easy button )
Plus our FREE Day doesn’t fluctuate by life events this teaches us LIFE goes on
we need to adapt, the more we do it the stronger we will be ….
YES it’s NOT easy but we are doing it .
Our official day we started was April 28th, 2017
Our weight in days / taking measurements
are on Saturday’s which is also our FREE day .
#2 Having a FREE day doesn’t hurt our weekly plan .
that would be like saying
if we eat off 6 days a week and then eat clean and perfect for 1 day
is that 1 day eating good going to help or hurt ?
probably won’t make a different either way.
Having ( 1) FREE day a week is working great for us .
Hubby has lost 22 lbs and I’ve lost 19 lbs as of yesterday.
Yes we are doing it the old fashion way,
Nothing quick and easy on this plan .
It’s not easy but, staying focused and food prep
is the HUGE thing for us .
What’s our FREE day ?
Our free day is (1) whole day / once a week ( Saturday’s)
We get to eat whatever we want all day .
NO guilt / No exercise .
The other (6) days are very structured with eating 6-8 times a day
a lot of fresh whole foods.
We are NOT starving our body we are fueling our body with healthy food .
our new plan is
90% percent food and 10% exercise .
I can control what I am eating,
exercise isn’t so much in my every day control
some days I have a flare up’s & lets face it life just happens and we all have busy lifestyles
I’m lifting weights to tone .
I am actually looking for a Power Block of weights .
Their kind of pricey but keeping my eyes on amazon for a set .
Nothing much in lifting 5 lbs currently I do NOT aim for a
body builder type of body just nice and toned.
I am also walking on the tread mill for 10-15 mins aiming for 2-3 days a week .
that’s definitely a hit or miss ( working on that ) .
I also do my wobble disc I got from my chiropractor.
Personally I think that does more for my body than anything else .
I do (3) different stretches each day 30 of each .
Whatever we do now with this new plan, we always think
“Can we do this for the rest of our life?”
That’s the trick …
Fade diets never work long term ( the weight always comes back. )
PLUS working out for hours every day
That’s just putting stress on my body that I already know I will never
be able to exercise the rest of my life at that pace …
Plus I don’t have time to work out for hours every day
( I have to stamp of course … This girl does have a few priorities LOL! ) .
Low impact is what works best for me!
