I gained weight.
It's uncomfortable on my short frame.
It's gotta go.
Which is kinda perfect because I want to blog more and this is something to share as I go. I'll share my Buddha bowls, non-dairy ice cream and whatever other fun things I make.
Ah ... That feels better, already.
And I dunno why June? Just sorta feels like the right thing. Just feels like all of the pieces are coming together and that makes this challenge, fun. But I've no doubt, there will be times when it won't be fun, and I'll write about that too.
Anyone who wants to join, is more than welcome. Doesn't have to be about weight, comfort or anything. It can be a 30-day challenge to spend more time reading, being outside or anything at all.
For me, this extra weight is uncomfortable on my frame so that's the focus. Now with Monster (or treadmill), gone, I'll get back to other forms of exercise. Currently shopping for a small indoor trampoline. But I also love my tai chi and yoga so it's time to make time for that. Love to jog and walk and work on the yard. Lots of fun ahead. Even without Monster.
And that my Booggerbutts, is all that's fit to print.
Thanks for reading! Talk again soon.
I think it's easier to lose weight in the summer months ...ReplyDelete
Sending you lots of good wishes for a happy month of June :)
All the best Jan
Thanks, Jan. Just ordered a mini trampoline. Arrives Friday. Can't wait! Small too and easy to carry inside or outside. Good times. Loved your post about feet. Soooo true. Soooo true.Delete
We will wait to hear the details and something you do might be something we can do except of course at 77 I will not be on a trampoline. No Wait! I refused to do that in 10th grade PE and got an F for my non efforts. your cartoon you looks like it will not take long to lose what you want to loseReplyDelete
Wow, and F just because you didn't want to use a trampoline? Oh my gosh. That's silly of the teacher. Thank you about my cartoon. Wishing you a yummy day!Delete
You are determined (in every thing you do) and I am sure that your extra weight will disappear. Have fun with it - and hooray for Buddha bowls.ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh, Buddha bowls are so fun to make and eat. Do you make them too?Delete
Go for it!ReplyDelete
Thanks, William!!!!! Loved the flowers on your page today. Such a great time of year.Delete
The approach of summer is a great time to get active! Gardening is on my agenda these days.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Marie! I am highly-active person now but still put on some pudge. However, I'm excited for the trampoline! Should be here Friday.Delete
Go, Ivy, go! You'll feel so much better by the end of June.ReplyDelete
Cheering for you, Ivy!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Debra! I'll take those cheers! It's all sunshine and rainbows today but maybe tomorrow it won't be. Thanks!Delete
All the best you can do it! I generally lose a couple pounds in summerReplyDelete
Thanks, Christine and very cool on the summer!Delete
My own extra weight has been uncomfortable for about three or four years now and for me I know the answer is to move more, since I'm already eating less, but there are so many reasons not to go outside and get walking. 1: winter 2: cold 3: winter....ReplyDelete
Inside is only ten steps from front door to back door; I just checked, it's actually thirteen steps.
Hey River! Any fun exercises for inside? I had a treadmill but just recently gave it away to a friend because I wanted the space. Ordered a mini trampoline for indoors. Ever use one? I haven't yet. Super curious. Happy Moving to you. Hope you find something fun for indoors.Delete
I can dance on the spot with some boppy music, that will help. Semi-pushups against the kitchen sink too.Delete
Dancing on the spot is great fun! Boogie boogie!Delete
I was so happy to see your comment on my blog! I've been missing you and your posts! I need to do the challenge with you because I've gained some weight over the past 4 months and I'm feeling it too- but I'm also feeling lazy. Good luck to you and I'll be looking forward to seeing recipes and progress!ReplyDelete
Thank you Judee! It feels good to be back and sharing stuff. Would be great to have you join me. Here's to the "Get the Pudge Outta Here! 30-Day ChallengeDelete
Good luck and have fun attacking the pudge! Keep going. Hugs, ValerieReplyDelete
Happy June, Valerie! Thanks and boogie boogie.Delete
I will join you Ivy, I have some winter (i.e. cheese) weight to lose! The pudge is bugging me when I wear my jeans. I'll be on the trampoline every morning for a little bit and now I'm walking the pups for about an hour a day so that should help! Good luck on your pudge-off!! ☺ReplyDelete
Pudge-Off! Oh my gosh, I love that. Gonna use it for an upcoming title. So funny! Happy to have you join, Rain. PS: Trampoline arrives Friday (they show), but hasn't shipped yet. We'll see. Goodbye pudge!Delete
Fingers crossed you get it Friday. I think it's a fabulous machine, if you can call it that! I just put on my headphones and dance, bounce and jog away while looking out the window! ☺Delete
Once we move the bedroom, the trampoline will go near a window too. Though this one is an indoor outdoor so that's a fun option. Happy Shopping tomorrow! I'm just about to jump back into photo edits of jalapenos!Delete
Sounds like a great plan, Wonder Woman! You go, girl. My honey bunny and I walk a lot. And there's biking, too, although we haven't committed as much as we want to. Yet. We'll get to that. I'm also spending time in the garden that is leaving me blissfully exhausted. I think my main focus is to stay physically strong, so when I'm old and grey, I'll be in reasonable shape! Loved the trampoline you sent me a link to. Soooo adorable! Today we go vote and if the weather co-operates, we're going tree shopping!ReplyDelete
Tree shopping sounds like a lot of fun! Staying strong is a wonderful goal. Love, love, love that. Same here. I want to keep being active until I'm six feet under. Trampoline should be here tomorrow. We'll see... so far no emails that it was shipped.Delete
I love that title....catchy! Thanks for stopping by the blog and leaving a comment. Nice to meet you via blog world! I am heading off to Calif next month and want to drop a feel pounds myself. I had decided that my next run to the store would be when I would start my eating better. I will get my meat for the protein, do seeds and nuts, fruits and veggies. Leaving out the bread, pasta, rice and stuff like that. Leaving that out will not be easy, those are what I love!! Visit the blog anytime.ReplyDelete
Hi Pam! Nice to meet you too. I came over from Rain's blog, I'm pretty sure. Here's to hitting goals. Safe travels to California! Love me some fruits and veg! Here's to a good strong June. Thanks for the visit anytime. I added you into my blog roll and will be back to see what you're up to again. Cheers, Ivy.Delete
I wish you lots of luck. I know the feeling as I could stand to lose a bit of weight. I'm not good with that at all. I hope next weight post you have great news to tell us. Hugs-ErikaReplyDelete
Hey Erika! Thanks for stopping in today. It's gonna be a month long challenge but not focused on numbers or the scale. I'll post about Buddha bowls, new ice cream that doesn't have loads of sugar and fat, and about the new trampoline. You're welcome to join in on the 30-day fun! Cheers, Ivy.Delete
Good luck losing what you want to.ReplyDelete
Best of luck for sure!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Holly! Going well so far and already the 9th. Where is the month going? Whoosh.Delete
I want to join you. I plan to join you. I probably won't join you because there is too much good on TV.ReplyDelete
Hey Granny Annie! You're funny. Happy Autumn!Delete
Hope you are doing well and enjoying your mini trampoline.ReplyDelete
Have a happy month of July.
All the best Jan
Hey Jan! The mini trampoline is fun. I had no idea it would be this fun. Happy Autumn to you now, hope your July was yummy and that you enjoyed the grandkids over the summer break.Delete
Hi Ivy! How did your 30 day challenge go? I admit, I need to drop a few pounds, too. About 15 is my goal. Maybe you could ask on your local Buy Nothing Facebook group if anyone has a small trampoline they are getting rid of? I see people on mine all the time giving those away.ReplyDelete
Hope you're doing well, my friend! xo
It bombed overall. Then got better after that. Now doing good and back on track. How's things there? Thanks for the FB idea. I ended up going with one from Target because I wanted to return it if I didn't like it.Delete
Sorry, my above comment probably came through as anonymous. I hate this new commenting system they implemented on blogger.ReplyDelete
Hey Theresa! Thanks for the follow-up to let me know it was you.Delete
How did the 30 days go? Love to see another post!!ReplyDelete
Hey Judee! Thank you for asking. The first part went okay and then I bombed and now things are back on track and about 15 pounders are gone, gone, gone. How goes you?Delete
