Day 12 - Lose the Belly
Well, I didn't lose any weight today! We friends from work threw me a retirement party and had all of my favorite foods. I just enjoyed myself! We had so much fun! I did eat very light the rest of the day and got in a one mile walk. I track... Read more
Day 11 - Lose the Belly
Oooh, not quite so good of a day. It was my day to take my favorite senior citizen shopping, and it's a long, slow process. We went to Arby's for lunch, and I just had a regular roast beef and water, so that part wasn't so bad. But I'm always... Read more
Day 10 - Lose the Belly
It rained most of the day, but I finally got our for my walk this evening. I was determined to do it, thinking about how good yesterday's walk felt. It was a nice fresh, clean evening, with all of the tree pollen finally washed out of the air... Read more
Day 9 - Lose the Belly
Well, today was better. I still didn't want to go our for a walk (cool, windy, dreary day), but told myself I could do 10 minutes...and once I got out there, it wasn't so bad! I ended up doing a mile in 24 minutes and felt GREAT afterwards! I... Read more
Day 8 - Lose the Belly
Yesterday I thought I would be ready today to "hit it" again, but I was wrong! I felt lazy and unmotivated all day. My eating was just OK, and I didn't exercise at all. I did lose about a half pound over the week, which at least is going in t... Read more
Days 6 & 7 - Lose the Belly
Day 6 - Celebrated Mother's Day with a nice ham dinner cooked by the guys. I didn't track, as planned, and I just enjoyed myself all day. Ate some goodies for dessert, and I'm sure I went over for the day, but not insanely so.
Day 7 - Too... Read more
Day 5- Lose the Belly
Today's big challenge was a potluck salad dinner at church. I had oatmeal with fruit and almonds for breakfast, and just a grilled chicken breast for lunch, knowing that I would be faced with a lot of calorie-laden bowls of pasta and who knows ... Read more
Day 4 - Lose the Belly
Another pretty good day. No walking but did about 45 minutes of window washing & vacuuming - definitely got my heart rate up! Then this evening we went canoeing - it was an absolutely beautiful evening with no wind!
Kept the calorie intak... Read more
Day 3 - Lose the Belly
I didn't do my regular walk today, but did some major shopping - was on my feet and moving for 4.5 to 5 hours. I know that doesn't count as official exercise, but I know I burned more calories than sitting on the couch!
I ate within my cal... Read more
Day 2 - Lose the Belly
I did pretty well today. Not as well as yesterday, but still pretty well. I walked 15 minutes at a faster pace than yesterday. I went slightly over my calorie range but nothing terrible. My biggest victory was another day without any Dr Pepp... Read more
Day 1 of Lose The Belly
OK, I'm off to a good start. Today I had a fruit & spinach-filled smoothie for breakfast, a big veggie-laden salad with a hard boiled egg for lunch, and Thai chicken & vegetable curry with brown rice for dinner. Skipped my one daily Dr Pepper t... Read more
OK, I'll reassure you right up front that I am NOT pregnant. I'm 64 years old, after all! But I have reached the end of my rope after years of LOOKING about 8 months pregnant!
I inherited a strong predisposition to storing nearly all my e... Read more
