Welcome to Sunday check in!
Remember last week? I asked about progress? How did you do THIS week? Name ONE THING you are going to do RIGHT this weekend to keep you on track or get you on track?
My week was fantastic. I named 5 things I was going to do right in a blog.
I wanted to lose one pound. I did that. X 4!!! I have not lost 4 pounds in a week in maybe, over a year?
How did this happen?
I got prepared. Planned, shopped and cooked my meals. And not diet food either. I made tacos, turkey burgers,spaghetti... it I made it healthy and I planned my other meals around that. I also ate a lot of protein at breakfast, one of the best tips I have ever received, thank you, Cannie!
I walked this week and I jogged for 1 minute intervals twice during the walk. Now, that may not seem like much to some of you, but with bad knees and bulged discs in my back, its a big deal for me. And even if it was just for 1 minute, it challenged me and my body. And I feel like I accomplished something. I am not going to move forward with the 4 week plan to run a mile, but I am going to do it at my own pace. Will keep you updated.
I didnt bake this week (until yesterday) but even then, I was restrained and stayed within my goals.
I ate popcorn for snacks in the evening when I was feeling munchy. And I went to bed hungry sometimes. It didn't kill me.
I am working on becoming "regular". Enough said on that one.
Yesterday, OK started taking Amberen for menopausal symptoms. Will keep you posted on that.
Mostly, I remembered, decided, recommitted, made an effort, paid attention, cared, worked and generally strived to continue what I am doing here.
Mostly, I am not done. I will probably never be done because even when I get to my goal weight, and I will, I will need help, my S P friends, my trackers, etc. To never go back too where I started. I will never go back to that unhappy, fat, unhealthy person who not only didn't care about herself, but barely lived on the edges of my life.
I'm down 55 pounds and I am not worried about where I was (70 pounds) or how long it takes. I am starting from here, today and moving on, one small step, one meal, snack, minute or day at a time.
Come with me!!

When I awaken in the morning,
I slide into you,
Hoping for a few stolen moments alone, together, just you and me
You fit me like a glove, no, a warm loose sweater,
A thousand comforts and memories,
And the day begins and we are ripped apart,
But the joy of knowing we will be together,
Later, is something to look forward to.
No constraints, just sweet softness and total acceptance.
You hold my darkest secrets and know me intimatly,
Everyone knows that when they see me in the evenings
They will see you first.
Oh how I wish we could spend each and every day together!
But that is not acceptable in today's society.
Maybe someday, but not now. Not yet.
But I have hope.
I am happy with the few hours we share.
I am never happier than when I am with you, except maybe when we bring in
That extra special "other' one....my slippers.
Oh how I love you, my pajamas. I am yours and you are mine. Forever.

I just ordered a 90 day supply. Yea, I'm desperate. This whole menopause/Peri menopausal thing is making me nuts. I was 1 month shy of of full menopause. Now, my hormones are crazy, I can't sleep, I'm bitchy, I have other issues that I'm just sick of and I believe it is not allowing me to lose weight ( even when I am not binging on cookies!)
Let me know if you have tried amberen and I will give an update after I complete my first 90 day course of it..

1. Meal plan and grocery shop
2. Complete week 1 of "running a mile straight"
(Please keep in mind I never wanted to run, I still don't and with my knees, I am not sure I can run but I am going to give it hell then decide after the first week. Frank is doing it with me because he is awesome like that).
3. I am NOT baking anything and I have no parties or other sidetrack-y things this week so I WILL stay on plan.
4. I am going to fan the flames of my spark.
5. I am going to lose a pound. I am going back to my small steps mentality that lead to losing the first 70 pounds.
What are you going to do right this week?
