Chapter 15 - Day 81

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

My eating has gotten sloppy as of late. I guess I need the pressure of the Challenge to keep me on the straight and narrow. And, wish I could say I really enjoyed my extra indulgences. I didn't and neither did my body.

Nor have I walked. Colder weather is a deterrent for me. This is nothing right now, come winter, I'll have to contend with it. So I'd best get out and enjoy the milder cooler temperatures and stop mourning the loss of the hot and sunny days. And looking for excuses!

It is time to get into high gear with health and fitness for the Fall Challenge. Practice round starts now. When I am low on motivation, "just do it" is what's going to get me to spring into action. (LOL, "spring" might be too strong a word!)

DAY'S POSTIVES
It's not raining right now.
I am physically able to move.
Difficult day yesterday with client is behind me
Glad the Fall Challenge is getting closer....I need a dose of discipline and the Challenge will provide it

DAY'S PLANS
Walk
Stay the course with Food Plan
Sit granddaughter

Wishing us all a healthy and fit day! emoticon

Chapter 15 - Day 80

Monday, September 15, 2014

Focus today is on me, just don't tell my clients, lol. I'll put in some face time and computer time, but then I'm getting my walk in and will make a batch of healthy vegetable soup for the week. Had too much process food this weekend, and my stomach is complaining, so it's high time I treat it much better.

DAY'S POSITIVES
Easier week this week with client work (heck anything would be after last week's of deadlines)
Looking forward to some homemade soup
Upcoming cake baking lesson from SIL (my fallen from scratch cakes have bugged me for years...)

DAY'S PLANS
Walk
Stay the course with Food Plan
Client meeting
Client work in afternoon

Wishing us all a spark-tacularl healthy and fit day! emoticon emoticon

    I love a nice vegetable soup. And cake. Especially cake.
Brownies are good, too. And whoopie pies and pies in general. Now I've got mashed potatoes stuck in my head. They might be my favorite.

Chapter 15 - Day 78

Saturday, September 13, 2014

Decent night of rest. It will be a busy day with granddaughter here for the weekend...figure I better squeeze in a quick blog while I could.

My fitness minutes really fell off pace over this past week, from my busyness and then post tiredness. Inbetween Challenge finished today. My goal was to just not gain over the past four weeks. I did that, and lost a half pound too. So although I did not achieve the 2.5% weight loss team goal, I accomplished my personal goal.

Looking ahead and forward to the Fall 2014 Challenge. The 8 weeks duration will complete right before Thanksgiving....perfect timing!

DAY'S POSITIVES
Thankful granddaughter, only 3, has not cried for her mother.
Grafeful for only being woken once last night.
Appreciative the scale needle cooperated and I lost a half pound from my starting weight for the Inbetween Challenge

DAY'S PLANS
Get some fitness minutes in while granddaughter naps today, rain or shine.
Stay the course with Food Plan.
Hopefully some time outdoors with granddaughter, though rain is predicted.

Wishing you a spark-tacular healthy and fit day!

Chapter 15 - Days 76, 77

Friday, September 12, 2014

DAY 76
On track with food plan, no fitness minutes. Got to get my groove back soon.

DAY 77
Ditto: On track with food plan; only 10 minutes of fitness. Have granddaughter tonight through the weekend while her parents are off on an anniversary celebration. She was really good tonight and didn't seem to mind the change in routine. Blessings. Hope she sleeps through the night. It will be wise for to get to bed now, too, just in case she has a restless night.

Hope your day was a really good one!
