I am down 5 lbs.

It has been a week or two since I have been here, life got in the way. But most of what has been going on is good. Just kept me busy.

I had a week solid of rain, so I was not able to get out for my daily 5 mile walk.This past week, it went from rainy to so darn hot you could fry eggs on the sidewalk. Not really conducive to walking either. (I really have to join a gym so working out is not an issue)

But still, I managed to lose 5 lbs during those two weeks. Between eating right and tons of water, I managed to keep on track.

The rest of this week is suppose to be 70's with no humidity, so I will be back out there. Tomorrow my goal is to walk up to the local nursery about 4 miles up the road. They have a farm stand out front, plan on loading up with some fresh veggies. It will make the walk that much more enjoyable. Fresh veggies to grill :)

Til' next time.......

Mother's Day I was taken out to my favorite Chinese food place and overdid a bit. (I cannot resist Chicken Wings and Lobster Sauce) It was a nice surprise and a great treat, but I gained a lb back. :(

But, I was back on track the next day. Walked 5 miles, drank all my water and then some. I had mainly fruits and veggies all day with a nice piece of Haddock and brown rice for dinner.

I don't know until Saturday if I lost that lb again (and more) but it sure feels like I lost something.
I am refusing to get on the scale until my weekly weigh in. I have previously been too obsessed with weighing myself daily, but I refuse to be a slave to the scale during this journey. Once a week is enough.

Until Saturday my lovelies.......

I'm Back.....

It's been quite a while since I have posted here. A Winter of being sick (pneumonia, flu and bronchitis, yeah me, not!) I have seriously just stopped coughing a lung up everyday after months of fighting this thing.Boy, did this sucker linger! But, I finally can breathe again without getting out of breathe and coughing non-stop, so I am back on the old proverbial horse as they say. I have been walking daily and eating right. 5 lbs gone so far, more to come. I am determined to get fit in this, my 50th year. I refuse to feel older than I am and determined to get my energy back and be as healthy as I can be at this stage of my life. I will NOT let my age slow me down. My goal is to be ready for a 1/2 marathon run as soon as possible. So, hopefully you will follow me and tag along, offer a little encouragement or a kick in the pants as needed. Along the way, I will be looking for any help I can get in my journey. So if you know of any products, sites, servies to help, drop me a comment. I am willing to try anything and everything. Stay tuned for more updates........
