September 2014

For September, I'm going to stop thinking about food- what I can eat, what I can't eat...seems I think about food too much. I have lots of things to do outside before the rain and cold sets in so my focus is going to be on yard work, a little house painting, adding a couple sections of fence. Maybe a few pounds will just "fall off" !!

I haven't been on Spark much lately. I can't get on internet on work computer. I am planning on retiring January or February. I will be doing more of my fusion glass jewelry, wire wrapping and stained glass to sell at craft fairs and friends. We also plan on traveling in the Spring.

Are you on facebook at all? Let me know and I will pm my info over there. I can access that on my phone even from work.

Looks like you are making progress on your weight. Congrats!!

Thanks!! Hubby has lost about 50 lbs, he'd like to lose another 20-30 and he'd like to start walking and get his BP under control too! emoticon

Oh my gosh!! I can't stand to be in a room without windows. I have claustophobia. I hope you do get outside.

Woohooo for the NO CANKLES!!! ;) That is a great sign girl! Congrats on your 5k's and 8k! When I run anything over 5 or 6 miles I do intervals and yes that does burn more calories for sure! That's one of the reasons I have always loved zumba, they are taught to interlace slower dances with faster and juping, using lots of arm movements, all of which help raise your heart rate! Try pumping your arms when you walk too, you may already, but if not try it. I did a lot of speed walking before I started running and using your arms really gets your heart working!

Good for you and it sounds like to will soon break your little platuea! Maybe try uping your calories a tad for a couple days and see what that does. What you do this week will reflect on the scales next week!

Have an awesome rest of your week!!
