Weigh-In -- 10-Mar13

Up two more pounds -- and I'm not off to a good start this week as today I've been dipping into the chocolate chips...

I'm sure that I earned every ounce of those two pounds with my horrid eating this past week. I just couldn't seem to resist the munchie monsters.

I did do well with drinking water and I've continued my exercise streak with at least 20 minutes of Walk Away the Pounds every day.

I have been taking healthy lunches every day and an apple for a snack most days. Then mid-afternoon the munchies hit -- I think that it is boredom. I need to get into the habit of drinking more water instead of hitting the munchie rack. Saturday was a good day at work, I was busy all day working on inventory and didn't have many chances for nibbling. However, the evening wasn't so good.

In addition to my continuing goals of drinking enough water and taking good lunches to work, this week I will "eat clean" (no munchies) at least three days.

In other news, I finally was able to ditch the neck gear late Wednesday. I don't have full range of motion looking from side to side, but looking up and down are pretty good. I do have some muscle strain and pops in my neck and probably will for some time.

We've had snow this past week and kind of cold, so not much has melted. It is supposed to warm up to the mid-40's for the week along with some rain/snow, so we will have some snow melt and mud. It would be nice to have some of the bad mud holes in the streets dried up, but it may be a while.

I'm looking forward to being able to get some outdoors projects worked on.

Have a good week, everyone!

    I'm sorry to hear that you injured your neck, but it sounds like you're making progress and healing. And kudos to you for taking a healthy lunch and snack. As for the chocolate, I can relate. There are days that I'd walk 5 miles if there was a good piece of chocolate waiting for me at the end! Have a great week.

    Glad to hear the neck gear is gone. That will be huge for you!

    It was 57 here yesterday. Enjoyed being in the back yard (even though it was for doggie doo duty) and going to the river for a walk. I can't wait for spring!

    I'm trying to focus on healthy packed lunches as well.

    emoticon We can both find success this week!

    Sorry to hear you hurt your neck. I hope it's not causing you too much pain.

    This week I am working on healthy lunches too. I find I am eating less now so it should be easy.

    Make it a great week!

    It sounds like you have identified the problems and have a plan to fix them.

    You are progressing and got rid of the neck gear so the rest will come.

    I'm getting in the mood for spring as well. I'm excited about it!!
