Ahh, the end of another reasonably pleasant day. I got a lot done. My 2 old ladies got their stitches out and are back running on their wheel. It's a lovely evening to relax with a nice cup of tea (herbal, of course) and some dark chocolate chips. Yeah, I'm enjoying the moment.

I started the week by going a little insane...okay, a lot insane. However, since that, ummm...moment, I've done very well. Only went over my calories 1 other time and not by very much. I managed to keep from giving into cravings pretty well. I found that often when I thought I was hungry, I was actually just thirsty. If a glass of water didn't solve the craving, then I allowed myself a snack. Between that and my walking, the results were that this morning I was .6# less than I was a week ago and, although my hip measurements stayed the same, I lost 1/2" off my waist. Yay! They're small accomplishments, but they're better than nothing. Only time will tell if I've finally got everything going in the direction I want them to go.
4/16/10. Well, I didn't lose anything this past week, but that's okay. At least I didn't gain...well, maybe 2 oz. I'm not going to stress over that. It's probably the water I drank before I remembered it was weigh-in day. I'm sure there would have been a change downward if I had done my walks. I admit it. I failed to do any of my walks last week. That will change. I will walk this week. There will be a lower number to log in next week.
4/23/10. Confession time. Haven't been keeping up with my walking. Got to work on that. In spite of my slacking off, I'm still doing okay in the weight area. This months weigh-ins are:
4/2/10 - 241
4/6/10 - 238.2
4/16/10 - 238.6
Today - 237.2
Other than one tiny increase, the numbers are going in the right direction. One more week. Cross the fingers and walk, walk, walk.

Last month I went to a local meetup of people who are into beading. Some do it professionally, others just bead for fun, some, like myself, are still learning. At the March meetup we learned a simple Peyote stitch as the base for a bracelet. Simple, but quite lovely all by itself. This month we are getting together to do the second half of the project. We'll be adding seed and bugle beads as embellishment. I'm excited to see how it turns out. I would like to be able to do this well enough to possibly sell them. I'll post pictures soon.

I'm a little late posting this. Easter kept me pretty busy. Yay! I didn't do so good on last months goals. I was only able to accomplish 1 out of the 3 goals I set for myself (worked up to walking 5 miles by the end of the month). This months goals are pretty much to finish what I didn't get done last month and keep up the walking. So the official list is:
1. Keep walking 5 miles a day 3 times a week.
2. Get my bike roadworthy or replace it.
3. Lose that &@%* 5# that wouldn't let go last month.
4/10/10. Not getting off to a very good start. Was only able to get in a walk once this week. Need to plan my schedule better.
4/17/10. I've been weighing my options regarding my bike. I only paid about $137 for the Murray almost 10 years ago. It would probably cost close to $200, if not more, to fix it up. Yesterday I was at Target picking out my newest Leslie Sansone DVD (Walk Off Even More Weight) when I passed the bicycle area. I looked at a couple. Didn't like that style. This style is okay, but don't care for the color (I know, superficial). Then I looked up (sounds of angelic music) and there it was. A Schwinn, a beautiful light blue and white Schwinn cruiser (cherubs tossed petals about us and I swear I heard fireworks). I was in love, but alas I had to leave her behind (It is a girl bike, I peeked). I have to wait until my check arrives. So, in about a week (week and a half tops) I will be pedaling my new bike down the streets of our little town.
1. Still walking. Not always 5 miles.
2. Had to have tumors removed from 2 of my girls, so getting the new bike had to be postponed.
3. Did lose 5.8#. Yay!
