Time flies...

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Well, I was going to blog back in December...that obviously didn't work. But here I am again! I did reach my WW goal of 127 lbs. in March. I've been stuck at 124 to 126 lbs. I would really love to get down to 120 lbs. but I don't know if I can.

What do I do? Swimming, 3 times a week, 30 minutes, laps. Walking...I don't drive, so I walk 1/4 mile to the bus stop. If I have to wait for a bus, I walk while I wait, 10 to 15 minutes. Walk my dogs (not very fast...they sniff and piddle a lot). Lunch walks...3 days a week, 20 to 30 minutes at a good clip. If it's cool, on Sundays I walk 3-4 miles at a fast clip at the beach or in a park. Weights once a week (I'd like to up it to 2 times, but hard to get to gym in the evening). Gardening has been BIG this month...weed pulling, hoeing, pruning bushes, cutting back ivy, raking, spreading mulch, turning the compost...3 to 4 hours each weekend, a 1/2 a day the rest of the time. Running at work a lot...doing stairs (2 flights) 3 times a day, plus lots of errands.

My body seems to have reached a static point. I can't eat much less (most days are 1400 to 1500 calories; splurge days are 1900 (Mondays...cookies at a meeting I attend) and Fridays (2000 calories, dinner out).

I feel good! I can lift bags of mulch and wrestle them around the yard. I can walk for miles and I have a ton of energy, more than I had when I was much younger. But I would like to loose that little bulge around the middle and I'm running out of ideas how to do it.

    That is AWESOME!! Congratulations!!

    Are you doing any targeted ST? That might help you if you are not. Otherwise, I don't have any suggestions, as I am dealing with the same thing myself!

    Way to go on your progress....keep it up!
