So life is good. I'm definitely at maintenance and really feel great about that. I need to check out articles now about maintenance. Last time I maintained I did it for 5 months. That was the longest I had been at my ideal weight since I got married. I'm known for my yo yoing. So I will spark. I will do the work and research on how others have kept it off here. It's funny. You think once you get to your ideal everything is perfect. I now have a new worry. Gaining. I will plug along and keep with my consistency. I will keep the right food in the house and order the healthy stuff when I go out to eat. Exercise is easy with my new career :). I'm going to practice my routine this morning. I'm getting nervous about my class tomorrow. I will feel better once I go through it. The boys had a good first day of school. They have left again for the day. I made a home cooked dinner two days in a row! Yay! That is a streak! :) I made boneless center cut pork chops baked in a spiced rub. Yum. Red peppers, aparagus and broccoli. Not bad. I had a salad with ministone soup for lunch. I had a nice conversation with mom during lunch. We needed that. I need to scoop all of the leaves out of the pool today because they are closing it tomorrow. I'll be thrilled with that. Have a great day friends!

    I've heard from others that it takes a little bit of experimenting in order to find that right place to be calorie intake wise, to maintain.

You are very lucky to be in something that helped you lose weight. I wish that I had your spunk!

Have a great weekend.

Lets see if I get kicked off... So my class went well. Alot of sweaty women with smiles on their faces. Thats good. This crazy Zumba instructor was in the front row and actually offered to do a the middle of my class!!!! OMG! I was in shock and actually had to explain to her that it wouldn't be appropriate for her to do that. Wow! Joe had a dozen red roses sent to my class :). The card was beautiful. I am blessed. He is amazing. I almost cried :). At least that was a good distraction from the crazy lady. I thought I would have been exhausted the rest of the day but I wasn't! Yay! The boys started school today :(. I hate when they head back. It's such a downer. They seemed ready though. Thats important. I'm going to work on my routine a bit today and learn some new choreography. Food has been amazing considering I've been to nervous to snack much. I usually binge when I'm nervous ....hmmmmm....I'll take it! I will not try to figure it out and just go with it! I had half a cobb salad minus cheese for lunch. Greek yogurt with almonds for breakfast. I made baked teryaki chicken with sauteed red peppers and broccoli with black beans for dinner. A glass of wine with hubby in the evening. Life is good. It is raining like crazy here this week.....Ugggggg... we will close the pool Saturday. So that's good. Have a good day friends!

    Oh Yuck. A crazy lady that thinks that they are better than you. I hate people that try to take over things.

I'm glad that you handled that well and that you did some quick thinking. Way to go!

My kids started last week for school. They are pretty much in the groove now.

Have a good day.

Quick blog

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

I'm afraid of getting kicked off again so a quick one. Overnight was nice. Food choices not great. Back on track today. Sooooo nervous about my first class tomorrow. I"m jumping in my skin about it. I have a class today so that will help and get rid of some nasty calories from the past couple days. Have a great day !

    Being able to get back on track may be the one most important skill for long term maintenance. Good for you!!! I already cheated - I read the next blog already, so I know your class went great. Again, good for you!!

Nice night with family....

Sunday, September 04, 2011

We went to church at 4:30 came home to meet JOe and went to dinner with the inlaws. Great resturant and nice time with them. I had salad, chicken parm and chicken with spinach and procuitto. I scraped the cheese off so that was helpful. 2 glasses of wine helped :). The boys stayed at the inlaws and our friend came over whom is newly seperated from his wife. Ugggg...That was a long difficult conversation. He wanted our opinion on how to move things along. It's all difficult. We don't like the wife at all but it still is hard to watch. Luckily their kids are 17 and 19 so at least they aren't babies but its still hard for everyone. He was here until 12:30am! I woke up at 9:40am and had my coffee and greek yogurt for breakfast. My head is a bit swimmy from the wine...I had some with our friend when we got home too :(. So didn't work on my routine. I'll have to wait until Tuesday to get more practice in. We are headed out of town over night with the kids. Yeah! Have a great holiday!

    It is so hard knowing what to say when people come and cry on your shoulder and I would imaging you are the kind of person people turn to when they are in distress - More strength too you

    I don't envy you and your husband with the friend coming over for advise. I myself would take cover and hide! :)

Have a good time with your family.
