Goodbye February, Hello March

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

My emoticon s were met for February! I have to admit, though, the line dancing just didn't go so well. I attempted but decided I need to learn with other left-footers. So, another time.

I am halfway to my 5 mile goal for the March of Dimes walk. I was elated today to do 2 1/2 miles in 50 minutes. emoticon

emoticon Leap Day is fun so far!

March Goals: Say goodbye to at least 5 more pounds. Walk my virtual 3k at the end of the month. Continue with great eating and tracking. Continue learning about nutrition and make more small changes as I do so.

Celebrating Baby Steps

Monday, February 27, 2012

Last night I ran my weekly report. I about jumped off the couch in delight when I realized I had stayed in range on my sodium for seven days in a row!

Other baby steps: staying on track in almost every area of my nutrition bank account. A tiny bit over or under a couple of times (and just barely at that) didn't throw me off track in frustration.

Off to a Great Start

Sunday, February 26, 2012

Whoopidy do dah! A perfect nutrition day! This week is going to be fantastic.

Hubby and I rode bikes together today. We didn't get very far. I need a padded seat. However, the short distance we did go woke up some muscles I've obviously been neglecting. It's probably a good thing the seat was so bad. This way I can build up gradually.

I am so thankful for all the sparklers that motivate and encourage me.

The plan for the week is to do stability ball workouts between training walks for the 5K. I'm really getting into this!

    Well, my friend, with all MY padding you wouldn't think I would need padding for my bike .... NOT !! I went down and bought me some PADDED biking shorts and they really make a difference ! the more the better .... save your pennies, they're not cheap !! I got the shorts on sale during the late Fall !! 1/2 price sale .... Roc

    I can relate to the bike seat! I don't use my stationery bike for that very reason! One good thing, at least since I stay in the house no one can see me grabbing a pillow from the bed to cushion it! Guess that wouldn't work very well for you!
Great plan for the week! emoticon emoticon
