Well, I am off prednisone again. This time I only put on 15 pounds. That isn't too bad, but it does make it that much more difficult on my weight loss lifestyle journey.

I started tracking food again today. I don't know if I should or shouldn't track my food while I'm on prednisone. I'm not sure it would be helpful or just plain discouraging...

Ok, I'm off the computer now and going to attempt some time on my Wii fit....

I finally caught up on my sleep today. I didn't eat enough...not even close.

Working 3rd shift has it's challenges particularly when you are deciding between sleeping and eating...

I have a summer cold. I'm not happy about it. I am still meeting my nutrional needs and that is difficult because I don't like to eat when I am sick.

I am looking forward to friday. I will be participating in Relay for Life.

Ok, I lost 5lbs.... that is great, but I think it is too much for 1 week. I also think most of it is water weight since I started increasing my water intake again.

I am still keeping within my goals, but yesterday I was way under in calories, by around 600. I just wasn't hungry. I know keeping my calories at a certain level is important and that much under is just as bad as going that much over.

My hike with the family yesterday was so much fun. We hiked for roughly 2 hours. It always amazes me that I can hike for that long, not be winded or tired. I am physically fit, but very overweight. I know a lot of it is the medications....why can't they come up with a medication for lupus and fibro that helps with the pain but doesn't cause so much weight gain?

My lupus and fibro didn't like the hike as much as I did....

I didn't have to work last night, so I only got in 10,000 steps yesterday. I stayed within my food ranges though.

I also joined a program at work called Shape up and go! It is an incentive to get us more active and leading a healthier lifestyle. I am part of a team. I am hoping this will be a good motivator for me.

Today, we(my hubby and the kids) are going hiking. I love hiking. I love being outdoors.

I worked in my gardens a little yesterday. My plants are all doing so well.

Thank you to everyone that is sending me the encouraging does help and I do appreciate every one of them.
