That's after 5+ inches before Christmas.What is this stuff? We live in Georgia, right?Trying to follow this quote by Bob Harper today. Stand up and finish what you started.Just one more day of this. Cabin fever beginning to set it.Awesome members and support here on SP!Cinnamon doesn't understand all the fuss about the snow, ice, and freezing temps.....

Progress! A month ago it would have been the cookies. What are you eating?A few years ago I didn't even know what this was. The first time we tried to cut it, my husband almost had to break out the axe, lol. This week I had it again. Boiled that sucker until just tender and then finished baking it after scooping out the seeds. Ate it with cheese and a touch of Zatarains seasoning (cajun.) Delicious. Think I'll buy another one.I like to move it, move it! What did you do to move it today? I did mostly walking and strength training. Still working for 10,000 steps.Congrats and Kudos to all you Sparkies for all the work and commitment listed in all of the posts in the feed. Lots of people everywhere changing.Why is it SO easy to regain the weight?
The answer may be in this quote. If all I concentrate on is losing the weight, but not really change how I think or what I do, the weight loss is going to be temporary.
If I change how I think about food, what I choose to eat daily, and how often I exercise - I have a pretty good chance of keeping off this time.
Weign Day for me. Down 1.4 pounds since last Wednesday. Down a total of 7 since the beginning of the year. Sweet and steady progress!Good Morning!This little guy must be in Georgia today. Gloomy day outside. Gotta walk inside - crank up the music!Ready to start a new week of losing weight? Put on your boxing stance and look straight ahead :)Doing a step ups challenge today. Ugh!!

My eating yesterday is best not talked about. Two meals of fast food while traveling didn't help my nutrition or calorie count. On the other hand, I did make it to my grandbaby's dedication service. She's so cute! Need a little something to get in in gear this morning. Too cold to be out, so all exercise will be indoors.Didn't make Day #2 goal of staying in calorie range.
