~ Welcoming June
Monday, May 31, 2010
Ever have one of those weeks you just know was some kind of test of patience? Yep, me too, and am happy to report I survived with flying colors!
The last couple of months have been a great lesson to me in maintaining my weight loss. I think part of me was actually scared not to track food anymore and what I found out was how much I learned from tracking food. I know what a portion size looks like; I know how many calories are in an ounce of cheese. I have been able to make common sense choices without gaining a single pound!
That being said, I miss being a loser! *lol* So, June is my jump back on the weight loss bandwagon. I am down to my last twelve pounds now so if I can lose three or four pounds during June I will be tickled pink with myself.
The plan is the one I started back in October, lots of water, fruits and veggies, whole grains, lean protein. It is basically what I eat now just a little less of it while stepping up the work outs a notch. I need to cut out a cookie or two as well! Eep!
I have loved walking the hills around here lately. What a great metaphor for life...don't look too far ahead, just keep trucking along and you will get there!
I have a couple of new blogs posted over at my site. One is about the energy we surround ourselves with and the other is an ode to the mighty smoothie. livingabalancedlife.word
Hoping summer brings us all renewed determination, blissful moments that make our toes curl, outrageous joy, and loving hearts willing to soak up all the wonder that surrounds and envelops us all.
