April Showers Bring May Flowers...and Lots of Humidity!

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

I'm excited about the start of spring! But I have to admit, the humidity is crazy~! I know this is Florida, but I was hoping this kind of humidity wouldn't start for a long while. Usually, the worst of it hits during the late summer to early fall.

My biggest concern is with the new vegetable plants I just put in the back porch. I already have chili peppers and bell peppers growing. Now, I've got cherry, roma and beefsteak tomatoes and some zucchini. I'm really hoping these turn out great. I need to buy some new bell pepper plants since the ones I currently have managed to get hit with mold.

I'm hoping all of these plants will produce a good amount of veggies this year. I've been on a cooking streak, and I really want to have enough to even share with my friends. :)

As for my weight loss goals, it's felt rather stagnant as of late. But that's mostly because I needed a break from the low-calorie diet and heavy exercise. But now worries, I've gotten back into the swing of things.

I'm loving the Turbofire program even though it's so tough. I just keep pressing play and going for it! So far, I haven't done much for scales, but I'll probably get a new scale reading in soon. I've always been slow with my weight loss so I know not to get too hung up on my numbers.

I also managed to buy myself a swimsuit. I was hoping to wait until after I got down to 125 lbs., but I really want to exercise in the pool, and my old swimsuit is way too big. And I have to admit that I felt pretty confident in my new one which has never happened before. I feel so good about myself and how much I've accomplished. It's a great feeling. One that I hope every member on this site feels as they progress through their SP journey.

    Good luck with your veggies!!

    TurboFire sounds interesting but I haven't looked into much. Is it like TurboJam but with more intensity?

    That's great about the swimsuit!! Very proud of you and your progress!!
