Happy Days!!!

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Hello Everyone!

I hope you're all well, my friends! And I'm hoping Spring has Sprung in your part of the world! My daughter's visiting from Ohio & she's loving our sunshine! We were on the beach all afternoon & I got a little sunburn! Um,'d think I'd know better, living in Florida for 2 years now, huh?!! Well, smarty pants me, didn't apply any suntan lotion cause I thought I didn't need it! Uh, sadly mistaken...

And I'm red as a beet this morning! emoticon

It's wonderful though that she's going to exercise w/me so I don't have to change my routine!!! She LOVED doing PILATES in an outdoor patio by the pool...& then she did SPIN CLASS w/me!!! It was awesome having her ride along!!! Groovin' & Sweatin"!!! We're gonna do TABATA SPIN this morning!!! WOOHOO!!! Burning them calories & fat!!!

Speaking of..........drum rolls please!!!

I'm down 1.8 lbs this week for a GRAND TOTAL of 31.6 since I joined WW's!!! emoticon

I did it! I did it!!! I surpassed that 30 lbs gone forever mile marker!!! I'm doing the HAPPY DANCE!!! Oh HAPPY DAYS!!!!

What's working for me?!! TRACKING! TRACKING! TRACKING! I really need the visual "cue" to remind myself what I've eaten for the day! When I review (& I do repeatedly all day!) what I've eaten, it reminds my stomach & head that well...
You've had enough!!!! emoticon And I've reached my limit!
And honestly, I've just decided I'd cut out certain things I used to eat...& I'm just not missing them at all! I've lightened up our meals...& I'm very concientious of my carbs intake! Gotta watch those carbs cause the tally sneaks up on me!

I'm NOT kidding! emoticon

Okay, so I'm gonna keep doing what I've been doing...cause it's workin!!!! And I'm just shooting for 35 lbs down! For now... I'm moving at the end of the month, so I may be a little lax at being on Sparks, but I'm all with ya in spirit, my friends!!! Lots of ya are doing a FABULOUS job in your daily care of you!!! Keep fighing the good fight're all WINNERS in my eyes!!!

emoticon GO US!!! emoticon

Oh, & one last thing! I've just signed up for a 15 mile bike Tour of Marco! Yep! A bunch of us ladies are doing it on April 14th! Oh baby!!! Gonna have fun!!!

EnJOY the week all!!! Keep pushing & stay healthy!!!!

    emoticon oh my gosh rose, u r amazing. I am so proud of u and so inspired by u too. Your ongoing, changing work iut helped to inspire me to change it up. And i agree with that tracking. It helps lots and lots. I think it is actually teaching me to eat smaller more normal portions. I certainly was not doing that before.
    u go girl. U do great emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Rose you have an endless supply of energy.. Can you bottle some and send it my way? I think truthfully I'd be more active if I wasn't working 8 hrs a day already.. lol.. But I do get exercise in almost every day so won't complain too much. Congrats on being down 1.8 lbs.. PS..I friended you on WW. Donna
