Fall is Here

2013 was a good year on my walking routine. I started around July and slowly stopped until it got very cold outside. 2014 came spring and I was at it again. The grass started growing on my walking path, well the whole yard started growing and DH didn't have any time to mow it. The gnats got really bad and my urge to continue disappeared. He would mowed it on and off and the gnats bugs me so much I simply do not feel like walking while these gnats hover over my head and attacking my eyes, nose, ears, and mouth. Then, I only do it when it's windy outside. I hardly walked for the rest of 2014. My average was probably once a month. 2015 is the same.

I am only motivated when it was windy or colder outside. And below pictures is this year. May during one of the nice day, with no gnats and hot. I was 120 lbs. I know because I just saw a doctor a month before. The second picture is right now. Weighing the same, of course you can't see my stomach from the first picture.

 In 2013 I lost 5 lbs walking (going downhill)/jogging (going uphill) for 1 mile most of the summer (I make an oval shape path on my yard). Not to mentioned push ups, squats, sit-ups, etc. I probably spent one hour and a half walking/jogging and the activities I mentioned. And most of all, I eat what I want. I weighed 115 then. That 15 lbs turned into 20 and I don't like it. Considering I only gained 5 lbs for 3 years, still unflattering. I think all that 20 lbs are sitting in my belly. I always have double chin, even when I weigh 100 lbs. Would you believe I started in the 90s? Got married, working, having children gave me 20 plus pounds to get rid off.

Well, here is to another start. Let's see where this will end and how much more I will gain if I fall off the wagon again.

My Very First Reading Glasses

That's right, I never have a reading glasses before. I thank my parents for feeding me right when I was growing :). Hopefully my eyes will hold for a while more. However, when I don't get enough sleep my eyes gives me problem. Actually not only my eyes but I get dizzy too. The solution is to take a nap after I remind the children not to go outside and when a stranger knock on the door to wake me up. Anyway, look what I got from Firmoo's current promotion.

Yes, that's me trying on my new specs. I ordered it on November 16 and they sent it out on November 18. My mail carrier brought it to my house on November 28. It only took twelve days for the process.  I pick this style because it goes well with the shape of my face. DH told me it looks good on me. Make sure to browse the daily new before settling on one. They have so many styles. This is very light and the temples fit perfectly. I just wished I check the frames to see if this one have hinges that can be move outward. Lack of research in my part and lesson learned.

Overall, I am very satisfied with my choice. I am always on the computer, reading, researching or helping DH look for used pianos. And my eyes can really use some help once in a blue moon. Don't forget your 15% discount. With the prices of everything going up these days, every penny helps the cost down.

Piano Search

I am pushing DH for the two weeks to find piano fro the children to play with. He goes to craigslist almost everyday to find one that is not a spam. You cannot believe how many people post something there just to collect phone numbers and emails.

One in particular stand out. Wanted to meet in a public place, what!!! with a piano! He must have a Piano lift on that truck he drove to that public place. We emailed one a week ago, but no answer until now. Poster/seller asking to call and leave a message, or text and leave a message, and they will call you when they feel like it. What kind of sales is that exactly?

Yesterday, DH finally found two that are looking real. They have a phone number and person to contact. We are waiting for the weekend to call them. He also found a piano place somewhere where he used to live in NJ. They are having a moving sale. If these two prospect for the weekend turned out to be another scam, we will take a ride down to NJ.

Hopefully we get a tuned use one before the holiday. Our children will be static.
