Headed In The Right Direction!

Friday, January 11, 2013

Hello Everyone!

I hope you're all beginning 2013 in good health & with good intentions!

I'm just getting over what I think was a mild case of the flu! Yes, Yes, I got a flu shot last September! I woke up Tuesday not feeling well, but still planning on going to a spin class...I was so looking forward to it! Well, I didn't even make it out the door! I went directly to bed & pretty much stayed there for 2 days with nausea & vomiting, headache & body aches...not fun. I would attempt to eat, only it was most often a bad idea. Hence, I'm down 2.4 lbs this week! This was so NOT the way I wanted to lose that holiday weight gain! So, I still have 2 lbs of that holiday gain to get rid of...& I'll be working on it this week!

Was it worth it? (the weight gain?) NOPE!
Will I remember this next year? Probably not! emoticon

Alright! My plan is to remain on track & get back to TRACKING! I haven't been doing it cause of being sick. Drink more WATER! Stay in caloric range! Eat more VEGGIES & FRUITS!
And MOVE, MOVE, MOVE my body!!!

I hope you all are well out there! Stay healthy & wealthy of mind, body, & soul!!! I'm KAYAKING with some Y ladies this morning! WooHoo!!! I haven't been out in a while & I'm soooooo looking forward to it! Our weather has been absolutely gorgeous here in SW Florida! LOVE the sunshine!!! Our temps have been running about 10 degrees above normal & I couldn't be happier!!! It's summer in January! Who wouldn't be happy!

EnJOY the week my friends! emoticon Rose

    That nasty little GI bug has been very busy, hasn't it? I'm glad you're feeling better.

    Wow! So many have been sick with the flu. So sorry one of them was you! But I love your attitude over the Holiday weight gain. You enjoy the Holiday but you are right back on track. That's normal living! Continued success for you.

    Dear Rose, So sorry you've been under the weather! The flu is no fun at all! I hope you have a great time kayaking! I've never gone, but one day......
    Glad you're working on your holiday gain. I'm working on my last year's gain!!
    I have had a small loss this week that I attribute to tracking and staying within my calorie range. Little by little it will come off as I am faithful in exercise, tracking and staying within the range.

    Have a great weekend, friend! Glad you're back to your wonderful self again!

    Glad you are feeling better, my friend. DH and I had something - not sure it was the flu, but not sure it wasn't. We are better now as well [I say as I sneeze about a dozen time].

    Enjoy your Friday!

    I'm so glad you are feeling better now Rose! This flu has been horrible for people. We all got our flu shots. This is honestly only the 2nd year now that I've gotten one and I'm so glad I did!

    Hope you have a great time out on the water today. Remember your sunscreen!!

    I so want your weather right now emoticon but not your flu, you can keep that emoticon . So sorry to hear you were sick emoticon but glad you are on the road to recovery emoticon Kayaking sounds like so much fun. Of course I'm deathly afraid of water.. emoticon emoticon . I had made a promise to myself to learn how to swim by taking lessons but dang they cost $60 around here.. that's way too much.. but that doesn't mean I'm still not thinking about it.

    Have a great day Rose.. Love and emoticon ~ Donna
