There. I did it. I am being accountable.
For reference, I am 5'1". 146 is where I've been, where I started, and a number I have grown to dislike quite a bit.
I didn't take measurements today but maybe once a month I'll post those, as well.
Let's see if I can lose one pound by next week!!

I've been absent-ish, again. I do this. I go into SP-hiding when I don't get my exercising done. *embarrased*
Last week I worked out Monday. and that was it.
This week I'm starting today.
On and on it goes.
Spark Peeps, I've been doing this now for a year and a half and I'm not getting anywhere. I've been very discouraged lately. Trying not to beat myself up, because I know, its LIFE, but good grief! Two Years!! I still can focus on my POSITIVES:
--I drink water now... --I lost one inch in my waist... -- My grey pants fit... -- I have a gym membership... -- I am less stressed.... and those are great, but they aren't the main goal. The main goal is to lose these 15 pounds so that my BMI declares me "healthy."
I've discovered recently that my eating habits are similar to my Dad's... which are terrible. I tend to do the same things that drive me crazy in him. Eating too fast. Eating too much and not stopping. I'm trying hard to work on these.
I've wondered if I need to go join Weight Watchers so there's accountability.... but I could have that here, WITH YOUR HELP.
I'm going to start Wednesday weekly weigh-in posts on my blog. I AM. And I want you guys to INSIST that I do them. Would you? Every Wednesday, if you are my friend, would you come to my page and say, "WHERE ARE YOUR NUMBERS?" Maybe that is the kick in the pants I need. So this starts tomorrow!!!
Or, if there's a great team you're on that has a weigh-in, please tell me in the comments. In fact, HIT ME: give me your favorite tips and tricks in the comments, would you?

I joined the Spring into Shape Bootcamp Challenge this week. So far I've stuck to it -- done my 10-minute video every day, and managed to do cardio as well. (Except Wednesday, but I'm making it one of my 2 Off days.)
I've had a great week mentally. That sounds weird, doesn't it...? What I mean is, this week was quite stressful with things to get done and places to be (mostly for the kids' schools winding up for the last 2 weeks), and of course my job is *regularly* annoying. Despite all that, I managed to keep a healthy, positive outlook. This is not easy for me; I've really had to work at it. Being mindful that the moment I'm in right now is GOOD; that my job is for the GOOD of my family, and it isn't the most important thing in the grand scheme; that the people I come in contact with deserve my BEST kindness... it's hard to explain, but mindfulness has been a great friend to me this week.
Check out zenhabits.net, if you don't know about it. It's one of my favorites.
Anyway, that's where I am. Haven't been reading blogs here on SP to try and maximize my time. Miss you all! Here's to an awesome weekend (TWO WORKOUT DAYS - can I do it??) Wish me luck!

Just had a lovely 2-drink lunch on the company dime! We enjoyed "Skinny Citrus Coolers" and fish tacos al fresco. I only had one-point-five drinks, BTW. Not the most calorie-friendly lunch but it could have been worse, and there's definitely something to be said for a morale-booster with your team.
Now I'm unsure I'll get ANYTHING done this afternoon! LOL!
V8 and pickles for dinner tonight, that's for sure. (Kidding, kidding. A nice salad ought to do the trick. )
My week is going okay, calorie-wise, and I think I can even stay in-range today if I work at it. Slightly worried about getting in my workouts the rest of the week/wknd because my parents are coming to stay with us for the next 4-5 days. It's always crowded and busy with them here, not that I would trade it. I'm so glad they are able to visit frequently and I know the kids love it.
Ten Minutes, right? Just aim for ten minutes....
