I worked so hard today that by the time I got home I could barely walk. My feet hurt and I just had no energy left. Don't let anyone tell you that dog grooming is easy!
After I rested a few minutes and had a bite to eat my son begged me to go to the store to get him a baseball tee for him to hit off of. I agreed and off we went. After that we went to the baseball field and I made some phone calls while he hit.
After a while I thought "hmmmm, I can do this", so I went out into the field and ran after the balls that were hit into the outfield. To be honest I stink at throwing but I tried and ran all over to get to them.
We had a lot of fun and I know that I got a good work out. Hey, better than nothing isn't it!
Oh and before we left he let me hit a few. Yeah, I stink at that too but it sure was fun!

So, last night was the first night of Passover. All my favorite foods, all things I made myself, from scratch and I couldn't eat most of it. Believe me, it wasn't easy. Apparently, everyone thought everything I made was delicious and my friend Dawn also brought yummy dishes and I just had a little taste. This was my first big obstacle, so to speak, since starting this new lifestyle. I had to keep telling myself that this doesn't mean I will never have these delicious foods again (I really miss my matzo balls!), it just means that this year it's not meant to be. Next year, when I am slim and fit, I will have a little of all the things I love and not worry that they will ruin what I have begun.
Tonight I am having Dawn (Barcintl) and her husband over for dinner. I want to use up as much as possible so I'm not tempted. My children eat very little of these wonderful foods so it's best to get rid of them now. Good thing my boyfriend loves to eat!!!

Today, officially, I have lost 15 lbs!! I couldn't be happier (well, I could if I didn't have all this weight to lose ). I am a week early too. I had set a date of April 19th to lose 15 and I made it. Whew!
This has been a really good week in terms of exercise. Funny how I thought it would bring a bigger loss but I'm guessing that along with all that working out I also built some muscle.
All good, all good.
So, now I'm working on my second goal. I want to a total of 20 lbs by my birthday. That's on May 18th which is about 5 weeks from now. At a pound a week, which is what I have been losing, I should be right on target. Believe me, I won't beat myself up if it's only 19 or even 18, but it won't be. I'll be right there where I need to be.
