I feel a whole lot better than I would if I had done nothing.

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

I did not exercise this morning before work, had a ton of things going on after work. But when it was time to update my blogs here and other places, I didn't want to whine about not exercising. So I set a timer for 10 minutes and did some marching and leg raises.

Easing myself back in...

Monday, January 13, 2014

I guess the good news is that I haven't given up on my goals. So, I'm back home to start tracking meals & exercise, read and get inspired, participate and motivate.

I Wore a Pair of Jeans Yesterday I'd Outgrown Two Years Ago

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Measurements aren't as accurate as the scale and I've been getting numbers that confuse me, but still, I'm showing a decrease in either my waist or hips each week.

And a few days ago, I put on a pair of pants to go to a meeting and they were too big. I put a pin in the waist and hurried out the door. It didn't occur to me until I took my measurements to see if I could wear some of the clothes I'd put away as I gained weight.

Sure enough, a favorite pair of pants I had to put away a year ago, I was able to bring out of retirement. And the jeans really surprised me.

I am one size away from where I was in 2009. Then I'll consider myself starting from where I left off. At this rate, I won't be able to wear any of my summer dresses. I might alter a couple of those that I really like, but I'll be perfectly happy to buy a whole new summer wardrobe.

I'm happy with this week's progress

Sunday, March 31, 2013

I'm not using the scale to track my progress this year. What I'd like to do is just go by my clothes, but I need something to measure. So I'm tracking my waist and hip measurements.

This first week of my re-commitment, I lost 1 inch off my hips and 2 off my waist. I measured my waist 3 times and I'm still not convinced. Measurements can be tricky. Maybe last week, I was a little off. Anyway, as time goes on, as long as the numbers are going down, I'm good.

Had one of my really good walks today

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

I walked 3 miles today which hasn't happened in a long time. I want to get back to that being my norm. It's my preferred form of exercise and without getting out to walk, I don't move around much. I'm going to start wearing my pedometer again to set goals for steps per day beyond my walk. This will motivate me to get up from the computer and move around.

    Congrats on walking the three miles. I remember the walk video you did back in September and I still view it just for the beauty of it. Keep up the great work.
