No loss no gain

Monday, August 18, 2014

This week the numbers tell the story. I neither gained nor lost any weight and the reason is clear, I am not working as hard as I was. the good news is my diabetes seems to be well in control. My numbers all look great.

Steps Average 7048 (goal 9500)
Calories Average 1502 (goal 1200-1550)
Miles 19.63 goal 30 miles per week

So I had a ho hum week but I feel pretty good about it as I'm not losing ground. I have just over 30 days to get ready for the 10K in September so I am onward and upward.

    Maybe this was a weird week. My weight loss has skidded to a halt, too.

    I hit a skid this week, too. Let's both get back on the horse and try a bit, shall we?

    Sounds like you're doing ok, but if you are hohum, then maybe this is a good time to shake things up and try something new. Are you excited about the 10k? If not, maybe it's time to look at setting a different exercise challenge?

Back to checking in

Monday, August 11, 2014

I've been inconsistent with my tracking all summer but I am back to it today. I won't post all of the numbers but I've been hanging in losing a little at a time. Today I am .2 pounds from my latest goal so I'm happy with that. My exercise and eating has been OK but I need to push a little harder.

Not sure what my total weight loss should be but I am still clinically obese even after losing 30 pounds. That means I will continue to work on this and then maintain... it is a lifelong process.....

Blackberries

Sunday, August 10, 2014

I am determined to fill my freezer with blackberries this year. I got a good start yesterday! DH took me to a place he found last year that is literally covered with vines. An old paved road runs through so you can walk down the road and pick berries without having to reach through them. We picked 18 cups in less than 2 hours. We will be going back before the season is over and picking more.

I made a sugar free pudding from some berries last night and topped it with a little whip cream. Yummy

    Sigh. Blackberries. I grew up on Vancouver Island where they grow juicy and fat all along the railroad tracks. Where I live now, they import these tiny, hard, tasteless black things they have the nerve to call blackberries. Have a few for me will you?

Yesterday was Incredible

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

I had my "bubble test" and heart sonogram yesterday and the outcome is awesome. The official docs report isn't in but I know there is no leakage and the technician and nurse seemed very pleased! Woo Hoo

I've lost more weight since I came home. I'm getting fit one day at a time.
Yesterday, I took a break from walking and gardened all day. The sun is finally out and it felt really good to play in the dirt. I pulled weeds, cleaned up my veggie garden and went to bed sore and tired. Awesome, way to spend a day.

After 9 weeks

Sunday, August 03, 2014

I can't believe how quiet my life is today. We took the kids home to Vegas and spent a couple of days visiting with my son. Now we are home and it is peaceful.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself for the last 9 weeks but it was a bit more than I anticipated. I took a nice long walk today and then mostly just goofed off all day. We had left overs for dinner and now I plan to play a bit on the computer.
