Monday At The Oldhams


Happy Monday everyone, it is a cold morning here in Tennessee,29. Brrr, I am sitting here at my computer desk, wrapped in an afghan, drinking a cup of hot honey green tea. Eddie is working overtime again this week, so we get up at 3A.M. each morning this week. Well, much to my surprise, Eddie made a special announcement to me on Saturday. He said that he will be joining me on my exercise, and diet plan. He wants to lose around 50 pounds, I am so excited. It will be so wonderful to work on this together as a team, cheering each other on. We are going to walk together, and exercise with stretching bands together. Our walking starts today when he gets home from work. We are going to walk this weight off, together we will be unstoppable. Woo Hoo, watch out world, Denise and Eddie are on the loose!! Have a great day everyone, I love you all.

I really hope that you two can get this weight off. It is so important especially for you with your problems. It should help some at least plus make you feel like you are doing something SPECIAL for yourself. I hope that you have a great day and keep warm. Sandy

Good Morning Denise,
Yes, it's cold here as well. They say by the weekend, it's really going to be cold again. I am starting my freezing feeling again. LOL. Last time when it was really cold, I couldn't get warm and kept my heat up on almost 80 degrees. LOL. A week later, I was hot and had to turn the A/C on. Now, I'm cold again. LOL. What part of TN are you in? I'm glad your husband is going on a diet with you. It is always so much better when there is someone to support and help you with it. I sure need to lose some weight, but since my DH is gone alot, it is very hard for me. I wish you much luck on the diet and I know yall will do it. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

WooHoo... Good for Eddie.
I will be praying for you both.

Ray and I decided to eat healthy this year. We can't call it a diet. That is a bad word in this house and we fail diets. But, we know we can start a new way of life when it comes to eating. Not a temporary change a permanent one. The kids are even in on it.

So here's to 2008 and getting in shape!!!

love Ya
Hope your feeling better and stay warm!

I'm sorry you weren't feeling well (previous post), but I'm so glad you and Eddie are partnering in new healthy habits together. It's always more fun when you have someone to exercise/eat right with. And...you'll keep each other on the right track. Awesome. ((((hugs))))

I am so glad that you have someone to work with.
You get up when Eddie goes to work?
When Keith drove a delivery truck years ago--I used to do the same thing. I used to get up and watch TV till the sun came up and then go back to sleep.Had a little problem with fear in those years.I watched TVland quite a lot. I saw some reruns that I had never seen.

Yay for Eddie!
It's great that he's joining you Denise. Eating healthy and exercising is so much more fun when you have a cheerleader and accountability partner.

Mary said...

You go Girl! and Eddie too. It seems easier when you have a partner to help cheer you on. You can DO THIS.

Blessings,
Mary
