4/17/12; progress

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

After several weeks of the scale moving up it finally moved down. Only a pound but hey it's in the right direction. And either way I am thrilled with myself because I am continuning to get extra movement almost everyday, exercise often, drink more water and working on my eating...I haven't given up and I am so proud of myself!!

Not to say I haven't had my down days and my binge days but I have managed to keep doing little things to move me in the right direction.

I felt today was a great example of how I am getting healthier. I walked to work from lunch break and then home after work. Took about 15 minutes each way..I didn't walk very fast but broke a sweat and was short of breathe....and is just over half a mile each way. So that was a mile walked; then after work I went to a friends house and helped her bring in her horses and groom them for about an hour total. After dinner I went outside and shot baskets with my son for an hour.

Yes my body be honest it hurts..but I was able to do those things!

Small but steady progress just what I want :)

    I have been walking instead of taking the car the last couple of days, with some pleasant surprises.

    The postoffice is a 30 minute round trip, and the fish shop is only a 20-25 minute round trip. I thought the postoffice was further away, so there you go.

    My weight loss is zig-zag, but the trend is down. If I see that my weight is trending up, i.e. two consecutive weigh-ins of 1.5Kg +, I give myself a strict talking to and see where I have gone awry using the SP site emoticon

    Congrats on your pound down and the added exercise to your LIFE. I always think when we can manage this we feel so much better about ourselves. Good job!
