Pictures With My Weekly Goal

Monday, January 27, 2014

Even though I was under the weather last week I managed to get in almost all my activity minutes by taking a 2.5 hour bike ride on Saturday. My knees felt it yesterday but today they are good. This morning I was ready to hit the dusty trail and went for a 45 min walk. I feel great and ready to continue with my weekly goal of staying active and eating healthy. My main goal this week is to not eat after dinner. If I can cut out that after dinner snack I think I will see better results on the scale.
I am very happy that I see results in the mirror even though the scale has only moved one lb down in the last month. This morning I was able to do 5 side plank crunches with both legs extended and with control. That is a first! It is so gratifying to see the hard work paying off. emoticon

    I'm glad you are feeling better Ali and I always love your pictures. I'm doing very well with my eating and am doing a better job of recognizing when I'm not even hungry. In the past I just ate because my head wanted me to eat but now I'm able to pay attention to how my body really feels.

Keep up the good work! emoticon emoticon

    The weight is great . . . I liken it to four sticks of butter coming off the body! Love the great photos and spectacular views!

    Nice pictures! Keep up the good work...always better to see results in the mirror than on the scale because that means you are gaining muscle! :)

    Looking good! Keep uo the good work - and if you need an after-dinner snack, make it fresh fruit or vegetables. You can have it if you don't eat fatty, high calorie junk.
