I’ve been totally swamped with a big project that started before the wedding and has FINALLY wrapped up. I’ve done pretty well staying on the Plan but have not lost any more past the 20 pounds lost for the wedding. So I want to start blogging my meals, weighing in and reporting weekly and I’m going to add a new goal for myself – commit to an exercise program I can stay with. I’m still walking most days. I haven’t done any weights since I hurt my arm in the pool this past summer but it’s all better now. This week, I want to explore some local places – to join one that offers classes – yoga, strength training. It will have to be somewhere very close to home (I know me!) so that I won’t use traffic or distance as an excuse. I’ve had good luck in the past with classes vs a personal trainer or just trying to do the weights on my own. I’ll still do the weights at home but I’d like to supplement it with classes. A place with different classes will vary it up for me since I am easily bored with exercising on my own – other than outside things like walking or riding my bike. My main goal will be to work on my upper body strength and toning plus yoga.
Today I am at my parents’ home with one of my sisters. We are about to walk up to Starbuck’s and I was looking at their online menu. I was seriously considering eating something there as a treat. But that is a bad idea! And a bit of a wake up call because that “treat” thinking is addicting. Last night, after everyone went to bed, I almost went for some butter pecan ice cream as a “treat”! The only thing that kept me from it was that I didn’t want to turn on the light and wake up my sister. If she hadn’t been there, I would have gone for it. So… I feel the old way of thinking sneaking back in – time to get back on this blog!
