man what a bummer. not only am i still on this plateau i've been on but now i'm up 2.4lbs. i just can't seem to beat this crap. oh well i'm angry, but i'm not out of the race just yet. i will just take stock and move on. today is the first day of the rest of my life. i've tried upping my exercise, eating less, more and inbetween. it just isn't working. so this week i go back to basics. try spark streaks for a while, water, fruit, veggies, and just go from there. i'm healthier, stronger, and my depression in check, so what i'm doing is working for myself, just not the scales. i'm bound and determined not to let this get me. i've come so far and i still have a ways to go. so one minute, day, and week at a time is still my motto. i'm going to get there from here. where as of yet i'm not sure, but i'm on my way.

today was a wonderful day. i was off of work and i went and purchased a much needed new pair of tennis shoes. i'm so proud. this evening i walked with my walking buddies(my dogs) and we did one hour. man they were beat. ok maybe i was a bit tired. the most i usually do is half hour but today i felt like i could conqer the world. i had a moment today when i had a chat with myself. you see i've been on this plateau for a while now and i was honestly thinking what the heck i'm not going to loose this anyways and i hit the chips. lets just say they are no more. but after that moment i felt really bad. bad for myself and all that i had accomplished. i've come so far. yeah maybe i haven't lost all that i had wanted to at this point, and maybe i have a bit farther to go, but heck i'm down almost 14 pounds, i have lost many inches, i'm in a size 6. i know guys i should be ecstatic. but i guess i'm just at a point in this journey where i had to do some major soul searching and ask myself what i wanted from all this. did i want to go back? heck no!. so i picked myself up, dusted off my arse, and i'm back in the game. who knows maybe i'll be here at this weight for a bit, it really isn't so bad and when i do drop a few more pounds and get to my goal, i will have earned every muscle, and lost inch along the way. i mean really, i'm in a size six. it has been years since i've been there. and i look pretty good for a forty something woman and grandma. people are starting to notice a change in me and they have commented on my leg muscles a lot lately. it is good old fashioned walking and strength training. so i'm back and ready for what the next few months will bring. tomorrow is a new day. so i plan on getting there from here somehow.

man i haven't realized i haven't blogged since monday. where have i been? oh well i'm here now. today is my last chance day for this week. i've done all i can do and we shall see how my body is takeing this. i promised i would do 1000 cal burn and so far i'm about one hundred cals off. so today that will put me over my weekly burn goal. kinda feels good. i like have a competiton with myself. keeps me from going nuts. food wise i've stayed in range all week. towards the higher end on some days but since i'm at a plateau at this point maybe that kick started my metabolisom back up to speed. who knows. all else in my life is fine at this point. my daughter signed back up for two classes this summer. she is finishing up nursing school. she took time out to have my grandson and now is ready to finish. i'm very proud of her and all that she does. they are also trying to find a new house and i wish i had half her strength to keep going. she is always upbeat and running. oh well my running days are not quite as fast these days but i'm still not out. i'm young yet and maybe, just maybe i can catch up with her and my grandson soon. my plan is to get there from here. good luck guys.
