I haven't utilized SP as much this week as I had been; and it shows. I've eaten too much of the wrong stuff, and this morning I weighed myself - oops! Re-gained a little.

Tomorrow is my 'official' weigh-in day, and am curious as to what it will show. I realize that this morning's weight COULD have been water weight, but I honestly think it was the extra sweets I ate. sigh.

I did my ST today - haven't all week until this afternoon. But I did it today, and I plan to do as I should next week.

Nothing spectacular, but chillin'

I'm not knocking myself out today, but do plan ST a little later. I walked outside for 50 minutes yesterday - great to be outside. With winter coming, I won't be able to walk outside much longer, but thank goodness for my treadmill. At least I won't be a winter-slug this year. And I'm making plans to curb my eating Thanksgiving week while family is visiting from out of town. Must remember portion control and intentional eating. : )

I'm working on a couple of cross stitchs - Pueblo Indian ones. They aren't big, and I plan to group them in my breakfast room.

Have a great day, all.

    I love doing cross stitch! I haven't had much time for it lately since I got started making afghans for all of my grandchildren. They don't quit so I am always behind. Have a wonderful day.

Sunday, weigh-in day

Sunday, November 08, 2009

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!

Good morning "Winner" :)

Just dropped by to wish you a great week and then I saw this. WOW, well done. 5 pounds by Christmas, that is almost a pound a week, I wish you luck, it's a good goal. It's better to keep the goal reachable. Just keep that body moving and you'll do it

I walked 20 km yesterday with hubby. We hurt at the end and jumped straight into the spa. Not hurting to day so much because I am always stretching after a big walk, even after little walks.

Off to the pool in about 2 hours. I'm hoping the weather cheers up a little so I can get another 5 km in before I go to the pool but it doesn't look like it.

Anyway, you go girl and YOU WILL do it, I know you will.

May God be with you and yours to day and always.

Hugs' n love

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 did it!

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

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!
