Didn't make my goal today, but sometimes ya gotta take a day off and that's ok.... it's back on track tomorrow!! Fri, 4 Apr 2014 21:19:18 EST Another glitter BUT.... I have been doing 4000 steps plus daily and gettin' the glitter.. but the scale was just not moving and I have been watching my food intake... Since I am a senior... weight loss gets harder and harder... soooooo I have decided to cut my 4000 steps to 3500 and ramp up my toning/weight exercises to see how that will affect my weight loss... plus help my aches and pains!! Fingers crossed...
