I had such an uplifting day today. I was late for my skate, and they made us get off the rink at the right time, so I was 9 minutes down on my cardio plan already. Then, I knew that I was walking with a friend/relative this afternoon, so I didn't stress about it. The walk we took was at a local nature reserve with beautiful trees, bridges, water, wildlife(squirrels, birds, chipmunks). The sky was so blue! I felt totally revived after our walk, and this evening, decided to get the kids out of the house and enjoy it with them too. So, we went to a close park and flew the kite my oldest got for his 5th birthday(he will be 9 soon). I was so glad we went, they kids enjoyed it sooooooo much, and I felt totally rejuvenated again afterwards. I spent about 3 hours after they went to bed doing financial crunching, and had a very constructive chat with my hubby, so I had a very productive day! Oh! I also managed to get my strength training in early today, which left me a free evening to crunch numbers!

Here I am, bouncing like a rubber ball again. I went a little hogwild on leftovers the last couple of days, and I have gained back 2 pounds, but, I am not set back as far as I thought I was, and I have decided that I am going to bump up my exercise to 1 hour daily again. Since I went to 30 minute sessions a few days a week, is when I have been really struggling. Burning those couple hundred extra calories really gives me some much needed breathing room with my intake, and I need to get past that 168 on the scale to get things really moving again. I had just about given up yesterday, I was telling myself, I like my body right here, I am very happy with how I look, so what if I am still overweight! Then, I decided that I want more than that! I want to be a healthy weight and live longer. So, I am done with leftovers, gonna avoid those cookies, and make today a great day! I just can't believe how hard this journey is, not that I expected it to be easy or anything. I guess the newest thing I have learned from SP is that I can keep working at it, and never give up!

I had a fantastic week this past week. I stuck within my calorie range for the most part and got in just the right amount of exercise without overdoing it. I went way overboard in my food at dinner yesterday though! I logged it after everyone had gone home, and I ate almost 2000 calories at our Easter dinner last night! AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH! Now, in days gone by, that would have been nothing for me, but I'll tell ya, I was so full! I just couldn't believe how many calories it was! So, when I realized how overboard I went, I got on my stationary bike for 1 hour to burn off some extra calories. I only gained .2 pounds from yesterday to today, and for the week total I am down 4.6 pounds! That gets me almost back down to my lowest weight so far, and keeps me away from the 170's! I am never going back, I told my buddy, and she is holding me to it!

Happy Easter everyone! Don't overindulge today! I am trying very hard to resist the chocolate treats, and save a bit of space for our potluck dinner today, because I want to be able to have a sweet dessert. Hope everyone has a great day!

Finally! The weather cooperated and I got out on my rollerblades! 30 minutes burned over 250 calories! I am tired, but it sure felt great!
