Hey Nancy, it's been awhile since I have stopped by. Sorry about that. I don't get online all the time and sometimes I am on FB more than SP. Anyway, I am not following anything right now. I am going to officially start another reset on July 5th ... In the meantime I am going to do my meal plans.

I am just not there right now. It is truly amazing how well I was doing and then grief changed the whole thing! But it just shows me how my eating is emotionally motivated/controlled. But I really have to get over this because I have to lower my cholesterol and LDL levels, this is not a joke, my health is at risk!

I have been getting an upset stomach and having negative reactions from all the junk that I am eating... I am glad of this because I will remember how bad I feel and that will keep me on track.

I have been eating chocolate, cheesecake with whipped cream, cake... fast food... pizza, Popeyes chicken (... I rarely eat fried chicken) but I love the biscuits! It has been horrible, but honestly, I have sort of enjoyed it too! emoticon

... anyway, on the other side of the coin, I do enjoy eating well and I am happy that I can cook and make interesting dishes, but I have to be consistent about it and focus on getting a puppy soon. I tried to get one, but I think I told you it would have cost me $275 and I just didn't have that... here is the blog about that.

... you will see just how much this little puppy looked like Jazzi. anyway, I hope you are doing better than I am. I'm off until Monday.. when you get a chance please stop by and catch me up on what's been going on in your life.

Hi Nancy, thanks for checking in. Great workouts!

Girl, don't worry about it, I am about to do the same in a minute I have a taste for some brownies... I am clearly not ready yet, but I am glad that it is off and on... I am going to officially restart on July 1st, but up until then I am still going to try to stick with my plan, but if I fall off I am not going to worry about it, I know eventually it will all come together.

In the meantime, I don't know how, but I have good news to share:

Starting weight March 1: 177
June 1: 172
June 20: 169!

... I couldn't believe that I had dropped some weight. I just weighed myself this morning to see how much I had actually gained. I think it's because I am not eating bad or too much, every day. During the week I fast in the morning and follow my plan... I slip on the weekend, so that may be why because it sure isn't because I have been trying! but I'll take it!... finally out of the 170's. This does motivate me

... we'll get it together, we did it before. emoticon

I hope you are enjoying your weekend... talk to you later.

Hi Nancy, sorry for the late response. All is well, however, I slipped big time this weekend. Seems harder for me to get and stay on track for some reason. I know that I am still grieving, maybe I shouldn't be, but I can't control that. Anyway, it's frustrating looking for a puppy. I almost adopted one last week, but found that the cost would be, from Paws $275, so I have to save up for one!... all puppies under 6 months are this price. I want a young pup and the puppy I wanted was a 2 month old Beagle mix named Louann, she reminded me of Jazzi!

... anyway, in the meantime, I will get the crate/kennel and prepare for the puppy and keep looking, I'll find one eventually... I just really miss having a fur baby to take care of.

Other than that, I have been walking but not much else last week. I did Body Beast Total Body and really liked that, I am going to try to do that today or tomorrow. I rather try to get a maybe 2 sessions of the full body workout per week rather than working out practically every day... I want to add more cardio/boxing in because I am still in the fat loss phase. I was pleasantly surprised how much I did like the BB total body workout, it was not too much for me, I felt sore from it for a few days after, but it was not an extremely hard workout. I am still prepping for STS starting in August... looking forward to that!

I ate "ALL" the wrong foods this weekend.... pizza, cookies, etc., just felt a little down and I feel horrible, so today I am back on track.

Good for you on keeping up with your workouts! I hear you about the weekends, it seems that this happens to me as well, maybe it's that the week days are more structured.

Well, time for me to get back to work. Have a great day... thanks for stopping by. You are doing emoticon

Hi Nancy sorry I didn't post back but after we got the garden all worked up and planted I had a freak accident happen...I was moving my daughter on a big lazy boy chair to make her more comfy with baby so she could lean back and I pulled to hard and the chair went flying and ripped my big toes nail all the wall to the cuticle and bruised it up and made a deep cut on the top of the toe so needless to say my toe hurt bad...today was the first day my toe felt good enough to stay on it for a longer period of time so I got in a awesome workout even though I could not wear runners but had to wear supported sandals with molds , and I could not do any lunges or high impact movement...I used my gazelle, spin bike and elliptical for lower body work and cardio...so it went great!!

Today's workout was Caths' HiiT Circuit Upper Body ...using machines for cardio and lower body exercises.

How you doing?
