Glasses and Sweat what a combo

I have my new glasses and am actually able to wear them! I have had them for a week now, the first few days I had them I was getting headaches at night but that was it. I'm happy to finally have new glasses, and mom is happy too. I still have my old ones hanging around just in case something happens to these and I need a back up pair, but I also have sunglasses so I would prob go to the sunglasses first then the old glasses. But anyways YAY to new glasses!

On Saturday Richard and I joined the gym again. We had both separately been thinking about it with out bringing it up to the other. I brought it up last week saying that I missed actually going to the gym and he agreed and so we signed back up. Yesterday was our first day back and I gotta say it felt great going, now I only managed 13 minutes on the treadmill but that was at 2.3 mph and I went half a mile. Plus I'm in very old shoes and am just waiting for the tax return to buy myself a new pair of shoes. We will be going M-F and taking the weekends off. For the first two weeks of going we will just being doing cardio to get used to going back then we will start lifting weights on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, Tuesday and Thursday will be just Cardio days. On the weekends when it's nice out and well summer we will go out and walk or do something outside just for fun and to keep active so as to not die on Mondays when we go back. We have also started watching how much we eat,  and drinking more water. Now mind you I prob wont talk about this much on here unless I hit a milestone in weight loss. But just wanted to share to let you all know that I am getting more active and this should help with my cabin fever.  Oh the whole reason we stopped our membership this last time is the lack of funds to keep going, Richard had lost his job and we decided that paying our bills was more important then the gym.

That's the update for now, more when I have more to write about.

Cabin Fever Super Bowl Glasses

Not much has been going on here, it's the same thing day in and day out, Richard goes to work I sit in front of the computer all day, he comes home I make dinner we go to bed and repeat. I have kind of hit a slump, I want to be creative but I got nothing. I hate when this happens, I also want to get out and be active but it's still winter so I guess you could say my cabin fever is setting in finally. It happens every year about this time, I want winter to be over with so I can go outside and not be cold. I still got a couple months of winter left though so I go a bit stir crazy.

Tomorrow Richard and I are going up to mom's house to watch the super bowl like we do every year. This year we are doing it a bit different with the snacks though, I am going to stick to mostly carrots and celery with some dip and we also have a bag of chips. Our drinks of choice is water. Both Richard and I have given up soda. We are also watching how much sugar we actually eat, we have cut way back. In fact if I have a drink with a little sugar in it even if it's just a sip of like power aid I get a screaming headache a few hours later. This is a good thing cause we really don't need as much sugar as we were eating, so we are slowly getting healthier.

I am also waiting on my glasses again. I went back to the eye doctor almost 2 weeks ago cause I just couldn't get used to the prescription in them. He took me out of the bifocals saying that it prob wasn't the best idea he had putting me in them and changing my prescription as much as he did, he also backed off on it a bit too saying that this new prescription should work if I give it time to get used to it. So now just gotta wait for them to come in and try them. I swear I have never had such a problem with my glasses as I have had this time. There was one other time I had issues but we only had to change them out once.
