August is here

Saturday, August 02, 2008

The month of July was went slowly as far as weight loss was concerned. I stepped up my exercise to 5 days of cardio and 2 of strength. The harder I worked the less I lost. Stayed at 1 lb. every week for the entire month. Don't get me wrong I was grateful for losing that lb. but I wasn't going to make my deadline of Nov. 3, 08.

I am show secretary for the only 5 day cluster of specialty shows in the USA. That is quite an honor and I take it very seriously.

I have been wondering how I was going to be able to do all the work and keep up that schedule of exercise. I had decided from the start that the show was going to come first. Last week some of the work had to be done. I spent 5 days (Sat. thru Wed.) at the computer form 8am until after midnight. I finished the last page at 2:30 am.

It still need to be proofed but I needed a break. So the next morning (Thur.) I went to water aerobics class. Friday was another computer day but I snuck away for an hour of water aerobics.

I stayed faithful to tracking on Sparks thru this all and only went over my calories one day. The night that I ran down the road to get a KFC meal instead of cooking. I also did my weigh in and was surprised I had still lost a lb. but figured it would catch up to me later.

Not wanting to be caught off guard by a big gain I got back on the scales this morning. Another 2 lb. loss! Woo Hoo,I had not lost 2 lbs. in week in several weeks

I haven't put it on my chart yet. I am tempted but so far I have only charted my weight once a week and I don't know if I want to change that. Sure I do! This is a big deal! I am down 40 lbs. now.

Think I'll go post that weight & go get a pedicure. emoticon
