3 years on Spark

Thursday, August 15, 2013

So, I realized I have been on Sparkpeople 3 years!
I have in that time lost 20 lbs, put 13 back on, & am now 8 lbs away from goal.

Oh yes, I have a Mini Goal weight too!
I want to be back in the 140s.

A couple of weeks ago my husband Ted & I made a pact that we wouldn't have any junk in the house,
& the near nightly ice cream cones would have to go.

He of course dropped weight Immediately, but I noticed my clothes fitting a Smidge better after a week, & hung in there.

This week is the week where my efforts show on the scale, as well.

Oh yeah, did I mention that I have stayed under my calorie intake bar , & hit my protein marks?
(After 3 years, shouldn't I know this works Only IF you follow that ?!)

& we go for a walk every night after Supper, usually around 2 miles

Even when I don't feel like it

Or it has gotten so dark that Ted has to wear his hated reflector vest?

I have also started a 3:30 work break workout , where I do a series of crunches, wall push ups & shoulder raise squats.
I am going to leave a set of 5lb weights there so I can do more.

3 years is a long time, & I am still learning. I will never give up!!
Spark on, Sparkfriends :)))
