There was nothing special about today, but that is a good thing in my book. I was able to stay on track very easily.

I did my cardio, 20 minutes of Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds w/warm up and cooldown and stretch.

Then I did the 15 minute Abs Workout video that was supposed to be tomorrow's challenge video, but I got the days mixed up, so I'll be doing Day 6's arms video tomorrow hehe. I really hate doing ab workouts. But I really hate my fat, flabby belly even more, so it's got to be done!

I easily stayed at the low end of my calorie range, which is what I aim for. And never felt deprived. I like that =) I also surpassed my water goal with 12 glasses so far and probably another 3 before bed. My bladder seems to be getting bigger lol.

I am currently at 6,000 steps on my pedometer. My goal is 5,000 at this time, which means I have to exercise to get there, but not all that much. As you can see, 20 minutes usually is enough. Next month I hope to raise the bar to 6.000 and eventually back up 7,500 and some day 10,000 =)

Umm yea, that's about it. My husband is sick so I've been spending time taking care of him. He got the nasty cold that I had the entire week after Christmas including New Year's. Poor baby =(

I read my daily Bible verse. I really need to read more than that, but it's better than nothing. I got to spend some time reading my current book as well. Still reading The Black Echo by Michael Connelly. No other hobbies for today besides being on my computer, probably excessively.

Thanks to all of my SparkFriends for your encouragement and positive remarks. It means so much to me to know that there are other facing these same weight loss hurdles and overcoming and sharing their journeys, successes and trials and set backs.

We got this!

Now to go swap the linens on the bed so I can relax and read before calling it a night.

God bless!

    Thanks everyone!

Keepitup: Water is super easy for me. It's all I drink. Florida is so hot that I do not like hot drinks, just some nice cool water. I was addicted to sodas, but quit them several years ago. Those warm drinks usually contain a lot of water though, so they are probably almost as good for you!

No_Defeat_Here: I can't forbid myself to do anything. I have to reward myself for positives. So rather than try to limit my computer time, I reward myself with it. Also, I get up much more frequently. I drink so much water that bathroom runs are frequent, and then I jog in place and stretch a lot... just try to be much more active and before I know it, I'd rather be up and moving than sitting sucked in =) But I do still spend a lot of time on my computer.. Especially when my husband is home since it is "our thing" to do together.

  I am an excessive computer user as well. I do believe that this is one of the reasons why my weight went up over the years. I find myself sucked in so easily. One of my 2012 goals was to follow the rule: "No computer till lunchtime". Of which I have failed most every day so far this week. I aim to keep trying to get back to that rule.

Good job on the increasing your steps!

    You are doing so well drinking the water! I struggle with that one big time. I know I need it and I know it's beneficial but I always want something hot to drink during the winter. emoticon

    It was very hard for me. The only one that was harder for ME was the cardio Day 1. But if I can do it, I'm sure you can!
