The Good, Bad, & Ugly of it all!

Friday, February 01, 2013

Hello Everyone!

I am setting the record straight & getting back on track, starting this morning! I hope everyone is doing well & staying warm! Oh, I know most of the country is in the deep freeze, so I won't rub it in that our weather has been beau-ti-ful! Awwww, well it has!

Okay, now for the GOOD!

Brennan's visit!
FYI: he's 14 & doesn't like his picture taken! I could hardly ever get him to pose, let alone smile!

I enJOYed his visit & I learned a lot about my grandson. He's a great kid!

Also GOOD was that I've been exercising everyday! My new passion is SPINNING! It's a great workout & I love how I feel after I take the class!

Now, for the bad!

I purposely didn't go to WW's last week cause we were so busy doing things w/him & we had been eating out & you guessed it! I had been eating things I don't normally eat...

And I did enJOY sharing a milkshake w/him at Steak N Shake after visiting the planetarium in Ft. Myers! And because of these simple indulgences, well, my weight is up...

4 lbs! emoticon

And well, there's no real ugly! I mean, life happens, right? I didn't really go all hog wild or anything...but I didn't track or drink the water & I wasn't mindful, weight loss w/WW's is now 24.4 lbs. Gotta get myself in gear!!!

So it's back to the basics for me! Today, I'm tracking my foods, staying in caloric range, drinking the water, & moving my body! Today I'm going to meet a bunch of ladies for breakfast to help celebrate a gal's birthday! Just black coffee for me...then heading over to the Y for a DRUMS ALIVE class!

EnJOY a healthy week my friends! And stay safe & warm out there!!!

    I also find it great to spend time with the GRANDS especially our only DGS who was 15 this month and now he is 6'3'' I am dwarfed beside him just like you in the photo.
    I see short sleeves and moving lake, lucky you to have the sunshine.

    It sounds like a wonderful visit with your grandson! And we all seem to have times when we "slip" ... I know I sure do. The main thing is to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and get back on track. emoticon

    How nice that your grandson could come for a visit. Sounds like you had a wonderful time.
    And your weather sounds awesome! (We are at 14 below zero here this morning!)
    You look super, Rose on your photos! I know you will pick up and keep going with your healthy lifestyle goals...You Can do It!
    Have a nice weekend.

    How nice to spend time with your grandosn!

    Those gains creep up so quickly, don't they? I began to get lax about tracking and choosing back in November, and by the time I chose to get back to it in early January, the scales said almost 20 # up. Grrrrr.....

    So glad you got to enjoy time with your grandson.

    I'm sure with all the activity you do the gain will be gone in no time. You have the right attitude.

    Have a wonderful day.

    emoticon Rose. it isn't it amazing how hard it is to take the weight off and how quickly it comes off, that surely ought to be a reversal there somewhere.. emoticon Glad to hear you are getting right back on track, but I must say there's a big difference in your before and after pics...just so ya know! Have a wonderful Friday. Donna
