Thankful Thursday

It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian of Brian’s Home. He wants us to post what we’re thankful for.

I think it’s a good thing to do each week. Focus on the positive things in our lives.

Make sure you link up to the Blog Hop at Brian’s Home and get the code to put on your blog. Then visit all the participants.

Today I’m thankful for modifying my diet and adding exercise into the mix. I was very lax about both for quite some time. It was showing. I was chunky, had blood work that needed addressing and I would get winded easily. It was because I wasn’t doing enough exercise and eating things I shouldn’t. That was six months ago.

Today, I’ve dropped 10 pounds and walk every morning. I eliminated some not so healthy food and quit snacking between meals. I am no longer winded and feel so much better. At 70 years old I needed to take better care of myself. I’m so thankful that I’m doing that now.

What are you thankful for today?

      It isn’t and when I don’t want to walk or eat right I tell myself that you’re going to exercise and eat right and then I do just that. ๐Ÿ™‚

    yay and congrats on the weight loss. exercise is very important. Exercise is great for every thing in our body, from brain to muscle

    Way To Go Sandee!!! Hubby and I take multiple short walks around our big back yard every day during the warmer months – to avoid getting overheated – but soon (I hope!) the cooler weather will make it possible to do our one or two longer walks again. We need to eat healthier foods, too; but we haven’t reached that point yet.

    Sandee,

    Hooray for you! The simplest adjustments can make a huge difference in your health. I’m working my way back into a good exercise regime and am trying to eat better. It’s always a struggle, though. Here’s to growing old gracefully, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Sandee says:

      They are making a huge difference. When I don’t want to go for my morning walk I put my shoes on and go. I’m growing old gracefully. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Standing ovation for you outcome! Well done. Walking is so good for us from head to toe.
    I’m thankful that the humidity is less and I don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn to take my walk before the sun is fully up
    Hugs cecilia

    Good for you Brian! We changed some of our habits- we eat lots less red meat, work out at least 3x a week- we both feel a heck of a lot better and look it too! Cheers!

  6. Jen says:

    Woo-hoo! Wonderful for you! I did that with my diet awhile ago and it made all the difference. I feel better and that is worth a million bucks. Take care and thanks for sharing your success story with us!

    That is pretty interesting in what you have said about health today and that Einstein is thankful that I keep up on the furs health. We have to do our par and at our ages that old adage “An Ounce of Prevention is worth a Pound of Cure” is doubly true. Purrs

  9. Jan K says:

    Good for you! It’s not easy to make those changes. I’m currently trying a new diet to help my migraines. I’ve lost almost 6 pounds now, so there are other health benefits than just helping my headaches!

  10. Xena and Lucy says:

    Yay for you! We’ve been eating healthy for a couple of years, with an occasional, purposeful dive into the unhealthy side for special occasions such as a birthday or our anniversary. We’re sure it makes a huge difference in health.

    • Sandee says:

      I didn’t like it one bit when I started, but my blood work was scary and I didn’t have a choice. Happy almost Friday to you too. Scritches to the furbabes. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yippee! What an accomplishment! YOU ROCK! Being old, our Mom knows exactly how difficult it is to lose the weight compared to when she was young. She says chasing me around helps…We are thankful for our online furrends, especially YOU! We LOVE coming to visit and we LOVE when you leave us comments.

    • Sandee says:

      I love all of you too and tell your mom it’s hard to lose weight when you’re older. Scritches all around, a smooch to Marv and a big hug to mom. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Patricia says:

    Good for you! I have been walking again now that it isn’t so hot and humid and it is wonderful. I am thankful for the change of seasons. I have been better about watching my diet but exercising…still just telling myself I should do it! Maybe tomorrow will be the day.

    Kuddos to you on all those changes. I really need to go for walks as I get winded easily and I am only 52. XO
