Oneweigh, my sympathies to you and your family.



Yesterday - a bit over range, walked 9K steps.

Today - eating in a better range, plus healthier options - and still lots of walking.

I went back to work today. Everyone was kind and concerned. It's a celebration week, so there was pizza. I'm letting myself indulge a bit, but I'm trying to be mindful about it. Tonight I'll go to choir practice and get more love and concern. My husband is having a hard time, especially as he thinks about what to say at the memorial service Saturday. I took my Dad's death hard, so I understand that he's really just starting the grieving process. Still, I wish I could make things easier for him. All I can do is love! emoticon

I am heading back in the right direction. I stayed in the low end of my calorie range and I got in a good workout yesterday. I was down half a pound this morning, definitely an improvement! I know I can continue to make progress. I am doing well so far today and I have a good workout planned for this evening.

accountability time here. i forgot to weigh myself yesterday morning. weight has crept up ever so slightly since we returned home. but today, my morning weight is what it should be before bed. 105.6. and i know why; pistachio nuts. potato chips. wine. oh yeah, i did have dinner too... but i lost control yesterday. i guess there was a reason:-)

it's another day. at least we got in out miles yesterday. have to do it today. and tomorrow. and stay away from the triggers...

Congrats, FEB_SHOWERS16!
I had reached the 145 mark this past week, but for some reason I won't allow myself to stay there long....two days that each included significant carb binges are bringing me back to my 148...grr.
148 is fine- it was my initial major goal, but I want to eventually reach and maintain 140-145.
I hadn't binged like I did yesterday in probably more than a year (about 60% more intake than my daily target). I'm trying not to beat myself up/punish myself in any way today, but it will take work.

I managed to maintain my weight last week - awesome, considering the weekend I had.

I'm also very happy the election is over. I got three calls and a text yesterday. Leave me alone, people!

If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

What is right is not always easy, and what is easy is not always right.

I was a bit tired this morning, so I skipped boot camp...but I'll go to the afternoon class after work. Tomorrow, I'll get today's swimming session in, because I have to get to the gym anyways for my fat percentage measurements (something I hadn't initially planned for, but the guy who takes my measurements wasn't available today).

Nutrition is still going well. I'm slowly but surely increasing my calorie intake, though I have to work on my mindset that it's OK for the scale not to move as far down as it has lately. That is going to be a continuing struggle, but I figure that if I got rid of an aerobics instructor in a little over 10 months, I can handle some numbers on a scale. :)

Hope everyone is having a great day today!

Morning all. Lori, I hope your ankle continues to improve.

I have allowed my weight to creep up because of grazing and too many sweets lately so I'm back to being more strict and journaling everything. A little trip on the treadmill or outside wouldn't be amiss either. emoticon

I'm feeling great this morning! I crossed into the 140's for the first time in my adult life! Hoping to continue this feeling for the rest of the day and eat right and work out!

Morning!

Strangely my weight was down yesterday and still down today. The lowest I've seen since freshman year. Pretty cool considering my report last week had my "calories eaten" bar way above my "calories burned" bar.

Have a good one :)

Good Morning!

I've been nursing a sprained ankle for 4 days now and it is feeling pretty good. Still some swelling, but functional. I will wait till the weekend to try to take a med paced walk. I'm thinking of getting out (I haven't used crutches, and won't need them now) and going to work for my elderly friend for 4 hours.

She's 90 and going on a cruise in a few days. I hope to be in as good of shape as she is at her age. She says she was never athletic, but was a swimmer and lifeguard. I told her that is athleticism. She was surprised. She smoked for many years, then quit and taught others how to quit. She eats lots of butter and mayo every day. She is a very healthy weight. I'm not going to start eating butter and mayo, nor smoke, but I will keep active and keep my mind active as well. She eats gluten free, that's the only other thing I really notice about her diet. She eats like a bird.

I only wish I could get by on as little as she does. But she hates to eat, and I am the opposite.
