More of a rest day, but I still take the dogs for their walk. Spent all day finishing up my classroom for the start of school tomorrow. I should have counted how many times I walked up and down the hall! I put down 45 minutes, even though I was at work for 10 hours.

I woke up and did a 15 minute burst of exercise to start my day. I'm cooking a great beef stew and I'm hoping to make a new recipe of zucchini and carrot cake. I'm still eating more cals and carbs and staying at the same weight
I walked the dogs this morning and this afternoon. I will be walking them again very soon. I walk them about 4 times a day. I took Mom shopping and made lunch. Best wishes for a great day. Linda from bean town
I had a busy day yesterday and got a double batch of finnish rice pies made up for my husband.. one of his favourite treats.. they are just a rice cooked in milk with a bit of butter and salt and spread onto a thin whole rye dough and baked in the oven. They are finniky to make and very messy with all the sticky whole rye dough. I had a 4 litre jug of organic milk about to go off in the fridge and at over $9 a jug I hated to throw it away, so made the rice pies.. lots of work, but it's nice to have them all in the fridge for future meals.. he likes them with soup for dinners.
I did all my exercise in the morning as I am going to do today..
Had a get-away weekend and back to the grind today. Sleep deprived, but will catch up tonight. Overindulged on food for 3 days, not to mention it was not my usual good choices either. Digestive system is out of whack.
Weight is up 5 lbs from last Friday, so I am back on the wagon again-- starting yesterday. My weight was 1 pound under what I wanted to be so didn't mind a couple pounds but FIVE is too much. I am sure it isn't all weight, but again it is a warning to get in control.
I did spend some time over the weekend with an exercise guru (a friend) who showed me some moves and gave me motivation to get going again.
Great week and the weather is still cool . . . for August.
Update! NO MORE Wiggle room on my weight! Still figuring out how to keep balance and stay in charge. Staying active but could step it up again.
SW: 275-276 Ht. 5'6" GW: 135 (goal range: 130-140) CW: WAS 124.7 NOW: 143.5 My focus is health AND fitness! And LOSING 10 lbs. again! (I'm STILL getting there . . . )
Day two of my staycation. My trip to get my license renewed was a bit eventful. I was on the bus headed downtown and suddenly there were many police cars and sirens. Luckily by stop was the block before all the action. A bus driver was shot (he's going to be OK) and then the shooter was shot (he died this morning...and all because he didn't want to pay his bus fare.). I ended up walking out of the area rather than waiting for a bus, but then picked up a Car2Go. The concert last night was wonderful. Today I'm continuing on my chores, finishing up cleaning the oven, starting on cleaning the closet and refrigerator. But first I have to get away from this computer!
crazy busy with bad internet connections. what a combo.
Walked yesterday but no gym visit. Just didn't feel up to it. Light supper but I've eaten so much over the limit the past week I am not surprised the scales are over 150 for the first time in 5 months.
Next 2 weeks will be a zoo at work but after this weekend at least the food adventures will be over for a while. Silver lining on it's way.
Good morning team! I'm still at the top end of range. Workouts have been great, but having a hard time with food. School will be starting in less than two weeks and maybe I'll be able to get back into the groove, if not sooner. 55 minutes weight training this morning. Loving the definition in my arms. Everyone have a great day!

Calories are at the top end (with weird proportions, because some people add a food and don't put in info other than calories - grrrr!) - but I've walked over 12,600 steps today, so I've burned my food!
Good morning! Glad Monday is over. Had 4 taskers dropped on me unexpectedly, one due two hours after I received it. Knocked out two of the four, delegated the third, and made great progress on the fourth.
Exercise yesterday was a brisk hour of walking in the morning and a tough mixed-levels yoga class in the evening. Slept pretty well because DH way away, and I sleep better when I'm not pinned in by both him and the cat.

I'm headed to the gym for 30 min cardio and 60 min Pilates class. Yesterday I got extra walks in at noon and with DH after dinner. DH and I went exploring off the bike trail--found some thick woods with nicely kept pathways and just as we found our way out and started heading home we felt a few drops of rain. Momentum picked up and the skied opened up for our final 2 miles. It actually felt good and we had a good laugh!
