Quick Post...I'm still here

Hello All!  I am still here.  Things have been extremely hectic with work and kid stuff, but I have been hanging in there.  I have been consistently going to the gym.  I have added weight training to my workout.  I am feeling better but it also seems that I am feeling more tired some days.  I missed my weigh in AGAIN because things got too busy.  I'm not worried though because I have been watching what I am eating.  I am also concentrating more on my water intake.  Its easier for me to drink more water during the week when I am at work.  I think that is because I am more on a schedule when I am at work and sitting at my desk just lends to me drinking more.
Seems as though the weather is getting nicer and I am anxious to get outdoors and do some activity.  I really cannot wait to go bike riding. I am going to make that my main activity for now.
So, that is just a brief update as to what has been going on.  I am sticking around for the long haul so bear with me.
Until next time, stay strong and eat healthy.

Happy St Patrick's Day

Hello and Happy St Patrick's Day to all.  I hope everyone is having a great day.  We are having some beautifull weather here.  I missed this week's weigh in but according to the gym scale it looks like I lost a pound.  I am going to keep pushing forward and hoping that I continue to lose.
I have been eating a little crazy these past few days, but I am getting back to normal.  Its hard when work gets hectic and I tend to just grab whatever to eat.  I am not going to let the little slip up ruin me though.  Last night I ate at this place called Sweetgreen. They specialize in salads and wraps and all ingredients are from local farms and they also have organinc ingredients.  I had the most awesome salad with the best cucumber, basil yogurt dressing. I also have some frozen yogurt with blackberries, candy coated walnuts, and granola for dessert.....yummo!!!!  I cannot wait to go back.
Well, that's all for now.  Until next time, stay strong and eat healthy.

What a beautiful sunny day it is.  Makes me want to get outside and take a nice long walk.  I can't wait for Spring.
 I had another successful weigh-in this week......down another 2.2 lbs for a total of 29.8. Yes!!!  Just think, next week I will be in the 30+ weight loss category.  Although it has been slow for my standards, I am just glad that it is coming off.  I aim to be down at least 40 by May.  I know this summer will be a good one for me because I will feel so much better.  And this will allow me to be much more active.
I find for me its best if I concentration on portion sizes.  I am also learning to listen to my body and only eat when I am hungry.  I was in the habit of eating just because the food was there, but now I am trying to change that.  I will keep you posted on how I manage that one.
Until next time, stay strong and eat healthy.

Things Are Looking Up....Again

Whew!!!!  I went to my Weigh-In and was feeling a bit apprehensive.  I didn't know what to expect, but I knew if I gained or stayed the same that I would feel disappointed.  Well, needless to say, I was ecstatic because I am down another 4.6 lbs!!!!!  YES!!!!!  That means I am down a total of 27 lbs.  I could not be more happy.  I mean I was really feeling down and in a rut.  If I hadn't lost any, I don't know what I would have done because I knew that I was exercising hard and eating right.  So, it all paid off.  Now all I have to do is continue on this journey.
My plans for the rest of this week are to continue with the exercises and add in my weight training.  I have a new workout plan from the trainer at the gym so we'll see what happens.
I hope everyone is doing well and remember, until next time stay strong and eat healthy ( I know I plan to).
