Forget About It!

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

I'm going to the beach! Oh how I LOVE this photo! emoticon

Well my friends! My weight remains the same! I've been bouncing up & down the scale all week, so I'm not surprised on this weigh in day! I've been working hard, & eating plenty tho! I do believe my body's in a process of "adjusting" so I will "stay the course", of course! Smiling...

Yesterday, I met Jodi (TYCA41458) for lunch & a walk! She's such a delight! I also jogged for 30 min & walked 30 in the morning, I walked 30 min after lunch w/Jodi, & 30 min after dinner w/hubby! All in all, it was a WONDERFUL day!

Today, I'm doing ZUMBA in the morning & walking 30 min w/hubby after dinner! I WILL also do ST today! I'm gonna look for an alternative ST workout, as I'm getting bored (now that can't be good!) with my current routine! Any suggestions? I've done everything here on SP, so I'm looking to expand my horizons! Your input is appreciated my friends!

Oh, & I just found out! I'm a certified RN in Florida I can practice in Florida! Woohoo!

Alright now, enJOY a WONDERFUL Wednesday all! emoticon

    Rose your life has been a transformation of so much good since I have met you. The journey has been wonderful as I have watched you lose this weight, move, taken on your life with vigor and passion as you want that healthy lifestyle back that you lost. You are such an inspiration and I love you for being you. You must be a blast to be around.. Donna

    Is it "once a nurse, always a nurse" like it is "once a teacher, always a teacher"? emoticon I am still not to the place where I want to give it up entirely.

I think you are correct to stay the course, especially when the weight was the same. I usually have a big loss the next week, and I bet you do as well.

    Grrrrrrrrrrrr,,,, I don't like using my laptop..... I wrote comment and must have hit something wrong and it disappeared!!! Oh well,,,, here it is again,,,, I had no doubt that you would get your license,,,, it was just a matter of when! emoticon
Now,,,here is my suggestion! Try doing no intense exercise for a week. While your doing this,,,, eat the lower end of your calorie range,,,, but spike to the high end a couple of the days,,,, your body will take notice and should start responding again! It's my version of I'm in control!!!!! I've done it and it worked for me! emoticon
emoticon& Love
Have an emoticon day Rose!!!!

We have to just keep on working at it (the weight loss) have done so well and lost so much already.

Have fun in Zumba class.

    Congratulations on the FL license...I had no fear...I knew you'd blow it out of the water!!!

Don't fret with the weight has yo-yo'd in a 3-lb. range for SEVERAL months now. I just keep at it and I KNOW at some point in time the weight loss will begin again. My only concerns are not to let weight creep on, and to keep active.

Okay...I have a thought for you. How about kayaking? Got any rivers? That's something I would love to do, and am working on getting "my brain" wrapped around the idea (since I have a fear of drowning, solely because I can't swim). I've been talking to some of my friends who do kayak all the time.

Enjoy your Zumba. emoticon and emoticon

    You are such an inspiration Rose. You know your body best. Just keep moving along and eventually lbs will drop again.

Congrats on your Fl. license. Wish you were closer. Really dont like all these dressing changes with Bob as it involves packing the wound. They say it could be 9 weeks before it heals. The poor guy. He thanks me every day thou for helping him. Sadly thou he can't go swimming etc .... When he feels up to it thou we are going to walk abit at the beach but stay on the boardwalk. There is plenty of places to stop and sit in the shade and small restuarants to stop in and have a bite and a refreshing drink.

Wishing you a great week!

P.S. Love that beach photo. Reminds be of when my girls were little. Now the only one who steals my flip flops is my dog Chloe. emoticon

Workin' It!

Monday, June 13, 2011

That's what I'm gonna do today my friends! Won't you join me?!!

I WILL get my jog/walk in this morning, & I'll continue working on my continuing ed classes! I WILL walk w/hubby this evening after dinner & get my ST done!

My weight's been fluctuating, & I'm not certain what to make of it, 'cept to say that perhaps I need to monitor the portion sizes a bit more closely!

Oh, you know how our eyes can deceive! emoticon So, I will be mindful today!

Happy Monday all! I hope your week goes well! EnJOY the day!

    I think sis, my perception of a cup and the actual cup are two different things. Perhaps pull out the actual measuring cup and not rely so much on the 'eying of a portion'. I have to do that or else I'd have a 2 cup serving and think it's only 1, but that's what got me here in the first place.. lol.. lousy cups.. hahaha. emoticon emoticon Donna

I too deal with weight fluctuations. My eyes aren't as accurate as a measuring cup & scale. I have to beware of snacking too! It's time to get really serious and get this done! LOL!
