February 2014 Goals

February 2014 is already here!

I have lost 2.7 pounds this month! LoL, but seriously it is still in the right direction, so I am going to focus on that! I am still struggling against the need to hibernate in these frigid temperatures.

I worked at the office last night until past midnight, but I told my boss I had to go work out first. I left the office a little early, around 4:30, but was back by 6:00 to get back to work. Glad I got in my routine at Planet ...

I have lost 2.7 pounds this month! LoL, but seriously it is still in the right direction, so I am going to focus on that! I am still struggling against the need to hibernate in these frigid temperatures.

I worked at the office last night until past midnight, but I told my boss I had to go work out first. I left the office a little early, around 4:30, but was back by 6:00 to get back to work. Glad I got in my routine at Planet Fitness. It was just 31 minutes, but that is better than no minutes!!!

That is one of my new strategies - I joined Planet Fitness. At only $10.93 (with tax) per month, even I can afford it. So far, I am concentrating on 3 things while I am there. I do the treadmill, the elliptical, and the recumbent bike. However, I saw a young man do something that I may try. He was lying on a bench, and he held onto the end of it above his head (I think it was a metal end piece). He lifted his legs toward his upper body. You see with my "trick" neck and back I can't do traditional sit-ups or crunches. I have to keep my upper body as stationary as possible. But what I saw him doing by holding on to the end above his head is exactly what I have to do. At home, I usually hold on the underside of a chair or couch. I may try what he did, although I won't look nearly as elegant as this young man did. He was slightly built with enough youth and muscle to make it look easy and smooth.

I am hoping to suddenly drop another 4 pounds this week. It could happen!!

To reiterate what I said last month . . .

I have lost a lot of weight since 2009, so the 37 more pounds that I want to lose is a cinch, and I fully believe that it is going to happen this year!

(Yes, I changed the goal from 34 to 37 pounds, in case, anyone was paying attention to the last entry - had to get honest)

Thanks for the support. I'm really having fun with this. Losing weight is hard work, but having so much support and info has made it easier and much more fun.
As for the music I play, the band started playing for the childrens worship service on sunday mornings. Now we play at all kinds of childrens events, including Christmas that's coming up soon. We have an annual Harvest Party, Vacation Bible school, rescue mission and much much more. It is exciting and rewarding.
Good luke on your goals!
Sonya
