Lots of good news lately.
One our business has been very busy after the New Year and holiday stuff,
two, our lease is being renewed at our current rent for two more years, and three, I've lost 5 pounds since sparking again.
It's slow but steady.
Still watching the gluten and carbs. Trying to get my carbs from veggies. Staying away from Bread (which I LOVE) , pasta, and rice. Not easy.
I do not have an allergy so if I slip a bit, no problem.
I am on a 30 day streak. Yeah!
How is everyone doing?
Have a great Sunday

That is all I wanted to say, I have been here everyday for 26 days. Up and down everyday. My girlfriend tried the low carb thing. Not sure about that, I love bread, but maybe I can take it out for awhile and pasta, potatoes, rice, etc. I can test it out.

Right now I am weighing myself everyday, which is actually encouraging. I started last Friday the 10th, and since then have lost 4 pounds. If I can lose 4 pounds a week, I can be in that swim suit and my old clothes again by Spring. Oh, and I haven't really exercised yet. besides keeping track of walking with a pedometer. Wait until I start exercising.
So far cutting way back on wine and really logging everything I put in my mouth, eating clean and healthy, and being here everyday. I'm on day 18.

Wow, two days in a row. In my last blog I mentioned the lack of wine made losing 3.6 pounds easy. However I boobooed, Joe and I took Brutus for a walk in St. Augustine. We walked over ten miles in two in half hours. You don't even realize it. But, here it comes, I had wine with luch, and proceeded to drink more later that evening. And you guessed it, it made me gain one pound. Even though I walked more than normal, and eat less calories. Yup.
The good news, I now know for sure what the culprit is. So, this morning, I at a light breakfast, Mexican eggbeater omelet with a slice of Tomato.
Oh, I started making these smoothies,
1 cup almond milk
1/3 cup Blueberries
1 medium Banana
Anyway, I set up everything I will have throughout the day. from lunch, dinner and snacks. My beverages will consist of coffee, tea, smoothie, water and 8 oz V8 low sodium.
After warking with Joe on a job, I am going outside to clear a tree and branches that fell, thank God in the opposite direction of the house.
So, stay tuned for tomorrows weigh in. I also hope to walk Brutus.

Hello Spark Peoples. Yeah. I just lost 3.6 pounds since Friday.
What Happened? I got on the scale Friday morning and nearly fell off it. 188.2. Shoot, I am shooting for a 200 pound body. No wonder my clothes get tighter and tighter. Let's get serious. My normal weight should range from 135 to 145. All my clothes are size eight, except the ones I was forced to buy because of the weight gain.
Okay, lets really get serious with the food. Eat healthy, clean food. No processed stuff except maybe those vegetarian things I like so much. They come in handy when Joe has heavy meals. Okay, easy enough, off to The Far East Market for lots of produce. Silk Almond milk only has 30 cal and double calcium per cup. Yeah.
Now what, more active of course, Well I worked all day the past two days, but did a bunch of house work yesterday, and running around. Today very long walk with Joe and Brutus around St. Augustine. But what really worked?
Yup, I'm a bit of an alcoholic. I LOVE wine. I drink a lot of wine. I do not like any other alcohol, but it doesn't matter, I drink plenty wine every day. There I said it. Wow.
So, Friday I cut down to one glass. Yesterday I cut down to half a glass. I also was strict on food, and made sure the night before I had food prepped and planned for the next day, including snacks.
Because I am seeing very quick results from this little thing, I know if I really workout more it will come off even quicker. originally my goal was to lose at least three pounds a week, so I can wear my clothes by late spring. It can actually happen. Lots of water, tea, and silk.
Thanks everyone who is always there for me. Love you guys.
