one last fling...

Sunday, December 31, 2006

Well, I got up today and followed the recommendation for the SECOND time, of having a light carb (slice of whole grain bread) prior to working out, to fuel the body. Since it's a non-strength day, I used Denise Austins Fat Burning dvd, and I also did some crunches.I am so pleased at the progress I've made - I remember when I started I couldn't hold the warm up or cool down stretches - my knees wouldn't let me. Now, while the left still does tend to snap crackle and pop, I can hold the stretch.And when I got home from church today, I found I actually weighed 2 pounds LESS than I started! Hm, perhaps this little piece of toast is just what I need...we'll see.
BUT, meanwhile, Abi wants one last fling, pizza, which she's been craving, and I also would like some. So...last one till after I get back from Peru? I've already put myself down for 2 slices of cheese pizza and two wings - and a salad, which I hope will help stave off the voracious desire to consume large quantities.

  


so near and yet so far...

I have a hard time with late night snacking...especially because of DH but I can't put all the blame on him. I got resistance bands and a balance ball for Christmas - have used the former, gonna try out the latter tomorrow when I do my workout. Keep the muscles guessing!
Tonight I went out for dinner to Appleby's with my old HS buddy Sue nee Hopkins - weight watcher menu, yay! NOW I've just got to keep from gnoshing before bed! No!No! No! Just 2 more days in Dec. Perhaps I can start 2007 in ONEderland.And STAY there.

  


Oh, well...

I've crept back up, what with wonderful holiday jollity, enjoying great food and family. But I know I can get below 200, and I shall return! I made my appointment with the doc today, returning to her in April - a year after she told me I'd better lose a pound a week! So, I think she'll be pleased!

  


Walking in the Weight of Onederland

Friday, December 22, 2006

I have been maintaining, which is good, considering the temptations at this time of year. Oh, I did indulge in some goodies, but I'm still 198! Yay! And even though I got to bed late last night and anticipated not being up to doing strength today, I got up BEFORE the alarm, and did the workout! Yay! I've burned above my goal calories already - Yay! Maybe next week I can get to 195 or below!

  


Weary Not in Well-doing

Wednesday, December 20, 2006

I have finally broken the 200 barrier, with REALLY concentrating on keeping in my range and adding extra exercise in the form of more weight for strength and more walking for cardio. I had driven around the block to measure the distance on the odometer, and it's about a half mile. So every time around the block is that many more calories burned! Yesterday I took our old mini-poodle Teddy, who walks at a good clip to keep my pace brisk. Maybe today I'll take his son Franky! I'm SO thrilled to have broken through! To think, I once thought I could NEVER do it, but here I am! If I can, YOU can!
