Nope didn't have a Sundae but for some reason today I was wanting more food. I didn't indulge though..been a good little bunny...I still have the evening hours to go but already have my rice krispie cereal measured out for a snack. I will eat them plain as I am wanting some major crunching..and for soem reason crunching really helps me. When I was super skinny in my teens and 20's I used to crunch ice..but dentist today frowns on me doing that..something mental in me that just needs to crunch. Rice krispies seem to do the trick for me..
On exercise today...got a 10 minute walk in around the place. Hubby and I have really gotten it looking nice. And I also got another 15 minutes in vacuuming and mopping. My back is paying for it now..but will rest and tomorrow do my arm and core exercises. I will enjoy the outdoors more tomorrow as the yard looks so nice....and then a surprise!!! the oldest son is coming over..He lives quite some distance and rarely ever comes so this will really be a treat.

On to greater things with the Awesome A's...


Start of my 2nd week. Yippeeeee!!

Saturday, March 24, 2012

Well this is the start of my 2nd week of the 5%challenge. I have lost 2 lbs this week and feel so much lighter and healthier. I have been walking mainly for my exercise. I've really been fighting the pollen allergies but still doing ok. Today I have found it hard to get the calories I needed. My stumach has really shrunk and I haven't been hungry so that is a good thing but know I need to do this at a steady pace and not all at once. So I will be snacking this evening for a change but since I have already measure my snacks and have them ready and know exactly what I can eat, it will be a trial for me to see if I can even eat it. It is amazing what a week of really measuring and trying to lose and exercising will do. And then the nice weather has been an added bonus. So I'm hoping and praying that the loss continues for this 2nd week.

Thank you & Measure!!

Friday, March 23, 2012

Thanks to everyone for stopping by and brightening my day. I have done a little better today in the allergy war. I got up and ate a small breakfast. No longer had fever. But then couldn't keep my eyes open and had terrific headache so went back to be and slept until after 2p.m. I feel so much better though still have slight headache. I did get 20 minutes of exercise in. Going to eat a really light snack type lunch/dinner. Since we don't eat but 2 meals a day this will be my 2nd meal. I have already put in my calories and know exactly how much to eat. Have it all measured out.

Starting tomorrow is my 2nd week on the 5%challenge..This week to make lifepoints we have o measure our foods...This will be easy for me as I haven't quit measuring it. It really makes a difference. You would be surprised what you think is the right amount is so much more than the correct amount. Cereal for example. Sometiems we are so mindless and just pour into our bowls..most serving sizes are half a cup and when you measure it, you will be shocked at how little it looks..but if you must indulge in a bowlfull then be sure to track the correct calories and seving sizes. So motto is MEASURE everything!!

Sick day

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Well I know I won't get much exercise in today. I went to bed in a chill last night and ran a low grade temp all night...pretty sure it is sinuses caused from so much pollen..So I've been up today but running at a snails pace...Took some meds so hope it helps some. Probably going to bed really early. I just had to come on and put in my points and things for the 5%challenge though it isn't much..will keep plodding away when I feel better.

    Hope you feel better soon! Thanks for the info about the chocolate tea. I'm definitely going to be ordering it. There were a few other seasonal flavors that looked mighty yummy as well.

Day 5 It's a Bang!!!

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Today started out rainy again. We did some major shopping so got some good walk time in while shopping. Keeping my calories within range. Sun is now out so going to finish the day with a bang and get more walk time. 5% challenge is going good for me though don't think I've lost any this week. I won't be discouraged. I won't be discouraged. I won't be discouraged.

    Hey Von, you're doing great!

If we keep doing the daily things the weight will come off. It's physics!! Keep up the good work. It was great to have the rain finally stop, wasn't it??
