Pushing

I am starting right off with my goal check in from last week.....My first goal was "No Scale".  I am happy to report that I didn't weigh myself one time!  It was so hard not to search for that scale, but I am glad that I didn't.  I think it helped me during the day not to go off track.  Success!  My second goal was "Junk Food 1x A Day".  This was a success as well.  I saved my treat for after dinner and only had one.  I wasn't even tempted to continue!  Success! 

Here are this weeks goals............


As you may or may not know, I have been going to the gym 3 times a week to do an Ab Class.  I love this class, and am seeing progress in my abilities.  Starting tomorrow, I am going to try to push myself to stay after my class and walk on the treadmill, and start lifting again.  I love to lift.  I love feeling strong and love knowing that I am continuing to burn calories after I leave the gym.  I just don't love carving out the time to do it.  Stupid!  I am starting the treadmill because well, we all know I've been trying to walk forever and keep putting it off.  Also, I need to get some cardio in my routine.  Now that I am over 50, I need that extra something because my metabolism is slower than ever and cardio will help that.  That is what the nutritionist who came to speak with our class told us anyway.  I've always know this, but....well, you know how that goes.  I am tired of using my bad knee as an excuse to walk.  The other day I was in our Mall, and there was an elderly gentleman in from of me "mall walking" and he was really trucking along with a very pronounced limp.  I thought "Oh my gosh, if he can do this so can I!!"  On the advice of my sister, I downloaded a book on my iPod so I can listen to it while I walk.  I am hoping this will help me stay motivated for 30 minutes :)  I am actually excited to get started in hopes that it will help me with my high blood pressure as well as my weight.  Anyway, these are my "gym extras".

My next goal is to lose 1 pound this week.  I already did one thing to help me with this goal.  I stayed within my points on Saturday and Sunday.  This is huge.  Lately, I have been letting my weekends take over my life and it has been showing at my weigh ins.  This past weigh in I only lost .02.  I am tired of these little gains and loses.  Time to get down to business.  I don't know why I play around.  I am paying good money at WW, so you think that would help me, but nope.  It's just sad.....

Oh, I almost forgot!  I have a new Great Nephew!  Little Rowan Mitchell was born to my nephew and his girlfriend!  My baby brother is the Granda Pa! 



Babies are such a blessing and bring families closer together! 

This week I am pushing myself.  I can do it!  I will do it!  My goals are toast!  How about yours??

xoxo

  1. Congrats on the new baby in your life - he's adorable!

    I find walking on the treadmill hard unless I have someone next to me to chat with. Downloading something interesting to listen to sounds like an excellent idea.

  2. The only way I can do the treadmill is if I have something to totally occupy my mind...otherwise I watch the timer and if moves SLOOOOW
