Lots of vegs, spent morning moving furniture (as in taking desks off the cabinets, and taking chairs off a pile of 10 high) - but also probably ate too much.

had a good thursday - a repairman was scheduled to arrive "between 8 and noon" so we hurried out on whatever walk we could accomplish between 7:15 and 7:58, almost 3 miles, plus we walked to the dinner party last night, 1.5 miles round trip. not our usual 8 miles, but some days are like that:-
i knew the party would be coming, and made fairly good choices during the day and just *enjoyed* dinner - and the scale did not mind at all. this is a nice feeling, knowing that there is room to enjoy. hopefully i'll still be feeling that way by the end of the weekend... off to stockholm today by train, 10K race on saturday!

Doing great on the exercise in spite of some foot injury and or inflammation. Not able to do the Bosu now, but was able to do advanced step, boxercise, cardio & sculpt and bootcamp just fine (its sore, but as long as its not on an uneven surface it seems to be able to handle it. The swelling is on my arch and is making my foot wider and I had to stop using my orthotic. I love my exercise classes and do as many as 3 or 4 a day depending on time. I was over on calories yesterday, but that was fine as I had more fitness hours then my tracker is set for. The reason I was over, Romano beans, had no idea they were nutritional powerhouses! But along with the high fiber and protein were high calories. My Mom's neighbor had dropped off a lot of fresh beans from his farm yard for my Mom and she passed them onto me as her husband doesn't eat veggies. Just love fresh produce and this is my favorite time of the year when the Farmer's market is in full swing :) I am a vegetarian so its not hard to get my freggies in.. Water averages 22-24 cups a day because of all the exercise. I feel like drinking nothing else because of it so that works out too.

Hi all! I've been MIA the last little bit. Hubby was home, kiddo started school .. ya know all that life stuff LOL. maintenance has been going ok, I guess. I mean I am still at weight but I was actually trying to drop down to 130 and did make it to 132 right before hubby got home now I'm back to 135. so I could say I'm still maintaining or I could say I'm up 3lbs, guess it depends on how you look at it lol.
Actually the reason i'm not feeling great this week has nothing to do with the scale and much more to do with some disturbing thoughts... manly the "whatever, I don't care" and the "I'm not going to stress about it" I'm not sure where its all coming from. poor sleep habits while hubby was home? poor eating habits? just a feeling of being in a funk? what I do know is I need to snap out of it! I do care!! some odd things have been happening, old habits popping back up out of nowhere and not even eating habits but just with the way i'm caring for myself. For example... for about a year now I have been finger combing my curls, haven't so much as picked up a brush and my curls look the best they ever have! then out of pure reflex not even thinking about it I started brushing. I did this not just once but a few times ...odd. Also I haven't been putting on my self tanner.. just little things like that have fallen by the way side. I'm not really sure why. And then there are some old eating habits creeping up on me too. like putting far to much honey on my oats this morning. I don't even like it super sweet anymore.. why would I do that? diving into snacks out of boredom...ect. Anyway I need to wake up! quit running on auto pilot get back to the present!! So I guess that's my goal this week get back to being mindful... funny I'd have to make that a goal

Almost 3 pounds over goal after a week of celebrating, some stress-related binging, and a little less activity than usual. I think that's some real weight gain and some water retention. Time to get back on top of both food and activity!

Stopped by the Y yesterday to help me decide if I want to rejoin. I miss swimming, and the elliptical gives me a good workout. I never participated in any classes before, but am still self-conscious and prefer to work out to DVDs at home. I did talk to two people about the classes and I'm halfway convinced I'd try yoga. I have a fragile back and have to avoid anything high impact and have to always modify bouncy moves. I'm pretty sure I'm going to rejoin. I'm at a point after a year on SP and always doing 6 days of exercise per week, that I feel accepting of the fact that working out each day is part of who I am. I am just realizing that now. So going to the Y gives me more options to suit my exercise mood on any given day.
After having a rare binge day on Tuesday, I'm back on track. I'm happy to see a change...I realize that by now I am able to have an off day but get right back on track. Right after I binged, I hopped on the bike upstairs and had an intense workout. Used to be I would wait till the next day to get back on track.

Did a kickboxing class at the gym last night. Haven't been kickboxing in quite some time and am actually a bit sore this morning. Will integrate this class into my weekly workout routine.
Another extremely hot day ahead of us again today. I'm on my way to work.
Have a great day everybody.

I had a beautiful, wonderful, happy day yesterday. Other than signing checks for our community (I’m treasurer) and to drop my car off at the home of the man who does detailing, I had no other responsibilities. So I spent the majority of the day working in my yard. Mostly weeding a bank that I let get away from me. I had a perfect food day and the scale confirmed that this morning. Now I am set for another day just like yesterday. More work in the yard before the storm rains reach Tennessee.
Have a great day!

Still bloaty and losing sleep due to kitten training. He's catching on, but it's still hard to sleep when he's trying to wrap himself around my head. Ice cream social at work today and I was torn between not eating at all beforehand or eating light.Went with eating light. Dinner will be hay-wire too as my husband is going to a football game so I'll be eating on my own but likely later than usual.

Another not-so-great night last night (so much harder when DH is gone), but I did well the rest of the day, so it was not a major setback. Just need to stop repeating the emo eating. I did get a great walk in at lunch in beautiful weather.
Today, I'm of to an okay start with a healthy breakfast and water on track. I have ST later and hope to get another walk in.

Eating was pretty much on the money yesterday.
I didn't get a run in or kayaking like I thought but my partner and I went for a 4 mile walk together so that was perfect!
On track today already. Plans to run tonight for sure AND do my ST.

Completed Cathe Slide & Glide workout this morning. First time through so I bit of a learning curve. Nevertheless, I worked up a good sweat and had the heart rate up a good chunk of the time. Feels good!

Good morning, team!
Yesterday was a pretty good day. I enjoyed my weekend indulgences, but glad to get back on track... my tummy is happier too. =)
I tested my shoulder with a full-body circuit workout last night. So far, so good! Going back to cardio tonight.
I barely made my water goal. I definitely need to work on that a little harder today.
