I DID IT!!! I reached an important (to me) goal! I'm down to 155 lbs - first time in 5 years. I'm so excited. I've already set my next goal - to get down to 150 by Christmas - not a huge goal in pounds, but consider that my b'day and Thanksgiving both come before Christmas and hubby is taking me out to eat for my b'day. 8 ) I already am planning a healthier-than-used-to meal at my favorite restaurant - Romano's Maccaroni Grill. It won't be Penne Rustica this time.....sigh. ok, that moment of self-pity is over.
I'm dancing today at making this goal!

Went outside to see what my hubby was doing this a.m., and discovered him raking some of the MANY leaves in our yard. I joined him, and we had a good time together as well as giving me exercise I wouldn't have otherwise had.
Too bad it irritated my tennis elbow, but tough, I'll ice it and take Ibuprophen! Don't regret my exercise at all.
Hope y'all have a GREAT weekend.

I got on the treadmill for 55 minutes last night! I feel righteous/proud/whatever.
And today, I did ST while we 'watched' shows we'd taped last night. Yea for me! Ok, enuf breaking my arm patting myself on my back.
I stayed in all nutrition goals yesterday, even had 1/2 C ice cream! But I blew it today - a little. Stayed within some goals, and the ones I went over, were not by much.
I'm planning on (COUNTING on) walking with my buddy tomorrow afternoon, so that last 1.5 lbs MUST COME OFF before Next Wednesday. That's just an interim goal, but psycologically important to me. When I make it, I'll weight the same as I did 5+ years ago. Yea!!!
I'm not actually looking at the additional chunk of lbs to lose, but will make (small) goals along the way to my ultimate weight goal. And, I AM living a more healthy lifestyle - have room to make more improvements, but I'm DOING IT! I AM WINNING!

Ok, I spent just about all day at my dau's place. She's healing nicely, but of course, still is on pain meds.
I am SO PROUD of me! I took healthy food to her house, and ate only that. On top of that, I also did ST while there! Now, I just have to let dinner settle a little more, then get on the treadmill for awhile. I miss walking with my buddy, but I'm determined to do what I can to make it Wednesday (our next scheduled day).
I got a cortisone shot in my elbow again this morning, and it's VERY bruised, so quite sore. I hope that puts the tendonitis where it belongs.....AWAY FROM ME!! I talked with the dr about surgery, and that's a possibility down the road. This was the 3rd cortisone shot in that elbow in 6 months.....it just doesn't last long enuf.
Ok, thru feeling sorry for myself. Y'all have a GREAT evening, and a good night's sleep.

New day, new week, new month. Time to get a better hold on myself and behave. I haven't done as well with even cardio this week, and food? SHAME on me! BUT, I refuse to let all that defeat me. I very much want to lose another 2.5 lbs in the next 10 days. I'm going to work hard on that.
I'm still having some trouble with food: I love it, I'm tempted by the leftover halloween candy (my husband won't let me throw it out) especially the CHOCOLATE! And I've been using weak things as excuses for not getting the exercise I should. Well, maybe not ALL weak excuses: I spent all of Fri (until I got home about 9 p.m.) taking care of my daughter - a lot of that time at the hospital. BUT, I probably could have gotten on the treadmill during the couple of hours that we were at my house before I took her home to her husband. sigh. Guess I'm due for a REAL SERIOUS talk with myself about excuses. I know what to do/not do, so I need to GET WITH IT! I'll be spending another LOOOOOONG day with dau tomorrow, but already am planning to do some strength exercises, and am taking healthy snack. Also, something to benefit us both: a DVD of Anita Renfrow. She's hysterical! Google her, if you aren't already familiar with her. I expect HJ and I will be laughing our hearts healthy for a long time tomorrow.
