Status Update

No, I'm not dead. Yes, I'm still here and doing well. I've got a cold now, but other than that, all's good. It's the Holidays, and of course, I'm busy as hell, so I don't have much time to update here!

But things keep on going real well for me. I'm still doing the big breakfast, medium lunch, small dinner thing, and it's working real well. I've slipped a few times and had snacks in the evening, but nothing too dramatic. I'm down to 125lbs - WOOHOO!!!! I've officially reached my goal! I'm so happy and proud.

Now I'd love to be able to exercise more. Doing exercise at home, even if at my own pace, gets really boring after a while. I'll look for some day classes I could take in the New Year. Yoga? Muai Thai Boxing? I'm already on the ice with the kids at least once a week, so that's not bad, but that's not enough. I'd love to be part of a hockey team again, but it doesn't seem to be in the cards for now. I'll keep looking tho.

Oh, another big thing - I've purchased my first size 6 pair of jeans this week. First pair of size 6 in over 10 years! So, so happy. :)

Weekend report

Hey ya'll!

Things are going well for me. I'm managing my weight quite well, even going down a bit this week (got down to 126, woohoo!). Of course that got me a false sense of security, and I indulged this weekend. But it's ok. I'm back on track today, and will stay on track all week. As long as I indulge only once in a while, I think I'll be ok.

I've been very active, always moving, always going somewhere. I've been stressed a lot too this past week. And I've had my monthly womanly thing. FUN. So I apologize, but yes, I felt like indulging this weekend was well earned. So there. :)

Exercising continue to be the hardest thing to do. It's not like I sit on my ass all day watching soaps... I'm active. Yesterday, I worked outside for 3 hours, racking leaves, packing them in bags, putting away my patio furniture. So that's something! I am just real bad these days at doing any targeted exercise. I gotta get back on that. It made me feel so good! I should remember that feeling and start doing it again.

Good news is I'll be going on the ice at least once a week with my hockey team. I'm coaching a team again this year. I'm really looking forward to it.
