Going Strong....

Monday, March 28, 2011

Today is Monday, which is typically weigh in day, but I managed to stick with my goal of NOT weighing in for three weeks!!! This is week two... I'm actually handling the NOT weighing in fairly well!! I continue to get my exercise in, most days; haven't missed one day of tracking my food/drink intake, and am proud to say, I'm consistently staying within my target calorie range! I'm also reading and staying active on SPARKPEOPLE.. so whatever numbers show up when I do weigh in, I HOPE to be okay with because I know the work I'm doing on me and for me is so much bigger than any number on a scale!

Walked Again!!!

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Yesterday I walked 2.4 miles at the Veteran's Cemetery! So beautiful! Today, I had too many obligations to complete before I could walk, which meant my walk was from home! I was determined to get it in, as the forecast for the next four or five days is cold and rainy! So.. off I went and got in 1.7 miles, for a total so far this week of 6.1 miles!! Feels good to be moving!!!

Good-bye to the Scale for 3 weeks!!!

Monday, March 21, 2011

Happy Monday everyone! Monday is normally the day I weigh-in, but I've decided NOT to weigh-in! My goal is NOT to weigh in for two more weeks, for a total of three weeks! I don't want to be a "slave" to the scale.. so I'm going to attempt this goal. My plan is to focus more on my energy level, my mood and how my clothes are fitting. I've read a couple of articles here on SparkPeople that suggest once a month or even every six weeks is best.. but I'm not ready to go that long... :)

I can do this!!! I can!!!

Beautiful Week-end!

Sunday, March 20, 2011

It's been an absolutely beautiful week-end here in Missouri; to make it even more special my oldest son, his wife and 2 1/2 year old son spent the week-end with us! (Our almost four year old grandson was here, too!
We had great FUN playing outside in our yard and going to our local parks (twice)!

So excited that spring has finally arrived!!!

I'm energized and ready for another SPARK filled week!!

Walked

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

I took advantage of the sunshine today and walked two miles at our beautiful Veteran's Cemetery! I normally walk at one of our local parks.. nice flat walking path.. but like to switch it up every once in awhile and walk the hilly paths at the Vet's Cemetery!
