Winter 5% Challenge

Monday, February 04, 2013

Back to it! I joined the Winter 5% challenge to continue my weight loss journey. I hope to be with the Casual Travellers again. I hope to exercise at least 30 min each day and track my food daily (will be tough on weekends but I can do it.) I made sure I worked out this past weekend taking my 12 yo lab for a walk. She was in heaven. Next morning she would not leave my side knowing we would be going at some point. We didn't go until the afternoon but she still loved it. Its been awhile since I've taken her. Guilt. So she is my weekend committment. :)

    Labs are so funny! I'm pretty sure mine can now SPELL "w-a-l-k", because he gets excited before the leash even comes out of the closet!

Maintain Don't Gain Results

Monday, January 07, 2013

Well, I did my final weigh in today and came out down 3 pounds from when I started! Yay!

Started a new challenge this month so I hope I can keep up with all that is going on. My Aunt died this weekend of an aggressive form of leukemia. I decided I will fly out to Seattle for the funeral despite our tight funds after our trip to Florida for Christmas. It was a tough decision but I ultimately decided that family comes first. They were there for me when my mom was dying of ovarian cancer so I wanted to be there for them in their loss too. My mom died New Year's Day making it difficult not too go. My sisters are so excited I am coming. It will be an adventure. My oldest brother has never had to do a road trip with us before so I know he'll think we are all nuts! I look forward to the family time.

A friend let me know today that she has breast cancer. It is in one side as well as the lymph nodes. Scary. My sister still seems to be doing well after her double mastectomy. She's seeing the world while she can. They went to Germany last fall. She now has the bug and wants to go to Ireland. I loved Ireland. So envious.

DH is gunning to buy a new boat this weekend. Of course bigger and better than his last. I know he'll use it too. He went out every weekend with the last one.

    Life is always an adventure, isn't it?!? I'm sorry to hear about your aunt and your friend, but glad you'll have an opportunity to spend some time with family. You're right. They ARE a priority you'll never regret!

Maintain Don't Gain Challenge

Monday, November 12, 2012

Well, it turns out today was weigh in day. Of course I had on an Irish sweater. Oh well. Didn't stop me from stripping off the layers. haha Now I have to remember at the end of the 8 weeks to do the same. :)

I slept so well last night. I was tired and draggy all day yesterday so today I'm a little more with it. I'm sure my coworkers appreciate it! Nice sunny day but cold. Taking the bus forces me to walk more so my plan is to keep it up all week if I can. Thursday I have to drive since I pick up my son from school but otherwise I should be able to pull it off all week.

Happy Monday!

Fit Bit

Sunday, November 11, 2012

I got my new fit bit zip in the mail on Monday. I'm obsessed! I love how it auto posts everything. It also has made me realize just how little exercise I do on weekends. I need to start walking the dog for 30 minutes each weekend. My new goal. I'm sure she'd appreciate it too.

The snow/cold has finally hit Colorado. Brrrr. This Friday starts the Maintain don't Gain Challenge at work for the holidays. 6 of us have joined and call ourselves the Santa Betties. We have to weigh in on Friday. The goal is to either maintain or lose. Should be fun. I'm in a gungho group this time. They'll push me for sure. ;P Tried a yummy cooking light recipe today. Grilled ham and swiss cheese with apples sandwich. Honey dijon mustard included. Very tasty. I think my son would like it too which is a score for sure. Just one week and then its vacation! yay!

    It's always surprising when the tools we use tell us something different than what we expected whether it is the FitBit or the nutrition tracker! Good for you for figuring out what changes to make with the new information at your fingertips!

    Good luck with your fitness group! I have been thinking of getting a fitbit and am really leaning toward it now. Keep us posted on how you do!

    Weekends are harder for me to get in fitness minutes too. You'd think it would be the other way around. emoticon
