HI. Can't wait til my trip up...Looking forward to seeing you all. Still making progress, the extra protein is helping me not be hungry between meals. Altho today I couldn't eat my whole lunch so I got hungry at 330 or so. But I resisted eating a snack and had some water instead and finished my lunch with dinner. That worked good! I got in 50 mins of step on the wii and did my upper body strength training at the same time...double duty, Yay! emoticon

Hi This week I am trying to cut out the evening snacking - didn't buy any chips this week and more fruit. Bought big tub of blueberries and some grapes, along with the apples and pineapple left from last week. Also am modifying my cardio slightly upping the resistance and speed on elliptical. Guess I have been slacking a little and while am still doing my 40 - 60 mins a day have not been working as hard. We will see.

You were right I got enough steps in. Had a nice day but 6 hours in the car is tiring. Was so glad to have today off. Did some vacuming and babysat from nap to bedtime while Brian and Alissa went furniture shopping for the new house.
Back to work tomorrow but its dead right now but soon should be able to start 2014.....

Hope you had a nice Easter and have a great week!

I am so glad its Friday too! It has been a long week and I have been doing fewer steps too but still making my 8000 everyday. Today its rainy again but just finished lunch and am getting ready to head out for my walk. I already did 30 mins on the Elliptical this morning just in case the rain keeps me inside...

We are heading over to Jeff and Susan's for the day on Sunday. It looks like we are all going and Mom and Dad are also coming, altho we told Jeff not to tell them... It might be tough to get all my steps in that day.

Have a great weekend, and Happy Easter!
