it's wednesday, can i whine?

ok, so i obviously shouldn't have gotten on the scale. the few lame pounds of fat that i lost over the last 6 weeks of ramped up exercise were back according to the scale. i'm pretty discouraged. it would be one thing if i wasn't trying, but at this point, logically, i think i should have lost a couple of pounds by now. my metabolism is beyond slow and i'm getting a little sick and tired of dealing with it. if this is what i have to do, to simply maintain- then i may in fact lose my mind.

that said- i was mad yesterday. didn't get my day off to a good start at all. i do need a new scale, so maybe that will be my 'reward' for sticking with it for 6 weeks. not that it's going to tell me anything different, but my is an old kind and i do think digital might be a little more accurate. g says ours doesn't work, but it always seems to be in the right general area to me. i try not to let scale rule the world, but i am doing this for my health and part of that involves losing some pounds to get to healthier weight. so in that respect- it is beyond frustrating. but i will trudge on!

i did think my favorite levi's felt like they closed a little easier, so if that's all the positive reinforcement i've got from efforts at this point- i'll focus on that.

yesterday was very busy office day -even went back after dinner. so it was easy not to find the time to move especially since i was mad :)

today i will move. some way, some how. have to come up with a goal for this week- how about at least 5 days of movement which includes aerobics, weights and yoga.

i think the only thing i missed in last weeks goal was yoga- so maybe that is where i'll focus today's efforts.

eats- last night we had leftover enchiladas- it's a lf cheese recipe and so good. on toppa lettuce and tomato. 4 thin mints and cuppa 2%.
what a treat!! my friend left the roll here against my protests.

this morning- grits with shrooms, and one thin slice of ham, dollop of lf cr cheese. cuppa tea, cuppa grapefruit.

good to go!(sorry so long di, thanks for listening)

someplace to vent
design work- love it!
the mother nature i designed for my clients earth day celebration
nice clients
work to be done
lucan, who was so excited to take a ride this morning, yesterday evening and this morning- g's truck starter died so we've been shuttling to and from work- you'd think the dog had won the lottery

thanks di

You're thinking like me. I went back to old Morning Glories I had written. I know what to do. Stop whining and get busy. Busier. If I want to continue to eat the same amount of 'maintenance' calories than I better ramp up the exercise even more. Simple as that.

Good stuff in the article though, but could you die at the leg and hip pictures?

ps- send out good thoughts for bil. he goes back to hosptial tomorrow as they have to manipulate the knee. just not getting where they want it to get to, so they put him under and physcially push it there. doesn't sound pretty. worst of all though is what that stupid infection took out of him. that why i'm amazed at how well eric is doing with what he's gone through. tell him to keep up the good work!

wrap up

1 mile walk with leslie (though, i did move my arms much more than her to get the heart rate up better....i will give myself that much credit).

lunch was ham on oat bran with lettuce tomato and lf mayo. pear on the side. dinner was a bleu cheese burger on a roll with lf mayo and mustard, salad on the side with lf dressing.

water has sucked today.
