Finally Feel Like I am Making Progress

Sunday, July 10, 2011

It has been a great weekend for me for calories and exercise. I burned 2756 yesterday and 2852 (probably more, still not done) today. That puts me at a calorie deficit of 1200-1400 each day. emoticonRight where I need to be to lose what I want to. I need to do it slow and steady due to my medical issues and medications. I think I had one of my "I am so done with this weight" attitudes. That is what got me started in the first place 4 years ago. I remember waking up Sept 12, 2007 saying "I am done!!!!!!!" That is the day I started my lifestyle change. It is going to be harder for the next couple of weeks or so. I will be working overtime with my day job, still need to keep up with my second job and get in exercise and daily stuff. I am feeling very determined this time. I think I am finally going back to basics. I did everything I needed to this weekend. I did cleaning, gardening, laundry, exercise and cooked. I even got in work for my second job. A lot more than I usually do at that. I need to work on saving money for vacation in Sept. I am going to go up to my daughters for her Relay for Life and participate on her team. She is chairman for the entertainment for the entire 24 hour period for the entire walk. She did it last year and really enjoyed it. Not sure when I need to start getting donations. Last year I raised 150.00 for her so I think I will do OK this year... I hope. I was not on the team last year, I just helped her raise money. This is for Breast Cancer Research. I am excited to be participating this year. I am going to take a few extra days to spend with her. She enjoys when I can cook for her in her house. Last year I was there in Nov and made tons of cookies for her.
Hope everyone has a great week
