I wonder if I should take a "before" and an "after" picture?
Though the scale hasn't changed much in the last few weeks, I tried on some clothes today/yesterday and found some stuff on the loose side. So, there may not be a change on the scale, the clothes fit better.

    Before pictures are the best thing I ever did... even when things don't seem to have changed much you'd be surprised... often we can't really see ourselves clearly.

Some days.............

Tuesday, August 05, 2014

Another crazy busy day at work. Didn't have time to take a lunch break and gobbled down my lunch at the desk. Got home tired and frustrated. Son said "what's for dinner". I don't know, left overs? He said "McDonalds".....sigh.......fine. Some days you just have to eat a Big Mac. I haven't had one if over a year.
. And I felt aweful afterwards. I should have done yoga instead. Hind sight is wonderful. Tomorrow is another day though.


I am...........

First day back to work after a 2 week vacation. I feel good. Work was busy. Had the potential to go to hell in a hand basket.......but it didn't. emoticon

Oh yeah.......weighed myself this morning. Down a whole pound. It's a start.


First walk in for ever....

Tonight I did it. Pushed away from the computer and took advantage of a gorgeous evening.
I used a new app on my phone...walking mate. It calculated my steps, distance and calories burned. So...I walked 5.6 km in 60 mins and burned approx 275 cal. yay! I mapped it out on SP's map...the distance was a little less as was the calories. Neither here nor there as far as I'm concerned. Either way, I am glad I did this. I feel great. I kept pace with my usually walking at a brisk pace. Saw some deer, and the beginnings of a beautiful sunset. Tonight, life is good.

It's me..........again

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

So.......after a long hiatus from this site, thinking I might do better with WW on line program, I am back. Still going to follow WW, but I don't get the people connection on that site like I do here. My biggest road block continues to be tracking my meals! It is so friggin' tedious! And overtime, I just quit. Not sure how to keep that going. I've been able to maintain my weight at 161 for the last several months, but it is a weight I am not happy with being only 5'5". I would like to reach 135 (maybe 130). Specifically though, I really really want to reach 150 in time for my New Orleans trip September 2nd. Going to a conference, but took vacation time also, so with 2 other co-workers we will be there 11 days. I am currently taking some holiday/vacation time from work. I go back on the 22nd. I've spent 4 days being very idle while getting work done on the foundation of my house. I'm hoping they wrap it up today and then I can start my program and get serious about my life. Well, I am serious about my life, but get serious about my fitness goals and where I would like to be over the next few months. Life is usually good, and I don't want to compromise what I have. I intend to be around for many many years, if only to drive my boys crazy.

    We need to do 3 things right in order to lose weight: Eat right; Exercise right; Change lifestyle. God Bless YOU! Vic.
