Two Turkeys

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

Last night I bought two turkeys - each @20 lbs. When I carried them, one in each hand, I thought how heavier they were. Then it struck me this is the amount of weight I want to lose by next May. I am walking around now with that weight and no wonder why I have aches and pains and tired. I am going to try to remember that and stay focused when I get discouraged at how slow I lose.

Today, I had no daycare kids again (he was sick). I exercised for 2 hours. Then I thought I would go and get my hair cut since I had the time -- a little reward for being only .5 away from this months goal. It was only a trim, but it was needed.

I had two low-fat brownies today and still stayed within calorie range. My plan for tomorrow is to exercise in the morning, have a high protein breakfast and be sensible at the Thanksgiving dinner.

Wed 11/24

New Goals:

1) Blessings
I am blessed with sewing skills. I love to sew and quilt. I also am a kiltmaker. I have used these skills at times doing mending, making kilts, curtains, bridesmaid dresses for additional income. I enjoy the process and the final product.

2) Low carb diet started on 11-15-10.

3) Exercise Variation

4) 10,000 steps a day -- and I will make sure I get that each day except Sun which will be a rest day. - emoticon

5) 9+ glasses of water emoticon

6) Finally I don't want to gain at Thanksgiving!

Goals continued:

1. Stay within calorie limit -- emoticon --just under

2. Daily exercise routine
-- Exercise before SP, then log it emoticon
-- knee physical therapy (3 times a week) --
--strength training a different set of muscles ea day emoticon>

3. Blog daily, even if it is short - emoticon

My original goal of reaching 229 by 11/20 seems unrealistic now since I have only lost 2.5 lbs this month. My new goal is 235 by 11/30.
9/25 = 242.5
10/2 = 241.75
10/12 = 240.5
10/19 = 239.75
11/2 = 240.
11/9 = 238.5
11/16 = 236.5
11/23 = 235.5
