Trudging Through Mud
Tuesday, May 25, 2010
Yikes...I keep fighting with the same two pounds or so. I've decided that this time I've beaten it into submission and I'm saying good-bye to the 176s forever. Grrr! Just a tad more and I've lost 25 pounds which feels like a big accomplishment and I get to treat myself to a piece of jewelry from one of my fellow Sparkers.
I realize that I haven't been monitoring my food as closely and not eating regularly enough. And exercise, what's that? On a positive note, I wore jeans yesterday that were too tight when I bought them but I was looking pretty good yesterday in my "skinny jeans". I get to see my hubby in a few weeks and I'd like to drop another pound or too so that might be the motivation I need to get some exercise in. I've also been considering hiring a personal trainer. Still thinking about it.
In any case, more of my food choices are healthier than not and that's a great thing for the long-term. I've been turning to my Cooking Light cookbook and my Pampered Chef healthy cookbook. We've had some pretty good things the last few weeks. Even Willem is enjoying most of the menus and is losing some weight.
Some thoughts for the coming week:
Do at least one session of Yoga.
Do at least one session of weight training.
Walk one-hour in the neighborhood.
Try three new recipes from my healthy cookbooks.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
Get this house in order so I can buy the UFC PPV this Saturday and have people over to watch it with us.
