"Scratch my back with a hacksaw"

For those of you who are Pittsburgh Penguins fans, you understand what my title means. For those of you who aren't, it means something good has happened. This and many other sayings have been coined by an announcer for the penguins. I use this saying today for several reasons.
First, the Penguins won last night and have forced a game 7 for the Stanley Cup.
Second, my granddaughter's soccer team won their game last night and she scored 3 goals.
Last but not least, I weighed in today and lost 3lbs. I am pleasantly surprised at this since I have not been really exercising the last few weeks. I have been maintaining my calorie/nutrient intake and that has really made a difference.
I am going to motivate myself this week to get back to the exercising. I have been taking it easy to try to let my foot heal but wonder how much I am making excuses. It is hard to get back on track when you have been off. I am talking with a friend about joining a gym together. It is always better to have someone to motivate you.
Today is a good day. I am almost half way to my weight loss goal.
I have reach my goal to fit into my jeans again. They are even a little too big now. My next step is to get down to a size 8. That is not that far away but
I haven't been there since I was in high school. (I don't want to even talk about how long ago it was) lol
