For those who read my last blog entry, I just wanted to let you all know that I am feeling better. I have been exercising a lot and eating well.

After a lapse of several years I have been able to get back into lap swimming. emoticon That is something that works really well for me. I haven't really lost much weight, maybe about 2 or 3 pounds but i can tell things have changed with my body for the better. Lots of lean muscle.

Food is less of a problem, 1. It's too hot to eat much. 2. I'm tired of cooking.
I even did pretty well on the trip I took. But sitll, thinking about what I eat all the time, if not tracking every single thing I eat.

I guess my midsection is about as good as it is going to get at my age. My waist is 32 and it's the first place fat goes when I gain so I have to be extra vigilant or I'll grow out of my pants.

My next challenge is going BACK TO WORK! Now my schedule will change again and I will simply not have the time for as much exercise as i have had this summer. I plan to still use my Walk Away the Pounds videos, they get me through when nothing else will. And hopefully I will be able to go to the pool occasionally. But working full time and taking 2 classes (no math!) Will put a big dent in it.

    I swim at the TC pool. It is indoors and the water is still pretty cool, although it is hot in the building.

    Where are you finding to swim that isn't HOT? I live in Maud and we have a pool, but the water is like extra warm bath water and I build up heat when I lap swim!! emoticon

    Try to fit in exercise within your day. Climb stairs, walk further from the parking lot, take mini breaks.

    Sounds like you made some real progress.

    Good luck!

    I used to do lap swimming in the morning before work. But that was years ago.

    Barbara why ever did you choose NO MATH.---Just kidding.

    It will be hard to get back to work but it will be cool in there for sure. Does this mean your job has changed or just the schedule. It is hard to beleive it is back to school already, we have not used our RV not once this year Pat in Maine. xoxoxo emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
