Still going strong!

Sorry I haven't been here much but things are going great.

I'm still doing yoga although I could/should be doing more.

I'm still walking a lot :)

My eating has been good. I've been planning in advance and sticking to it. I have gone out to eat a couple of times this week and managed to stick to good choices.

Last weeks weigh in was the same as the week before and that's o.k because my clothes are getting looser. I'm feeling great.

You don't appreciate something until you don't have it!

I was having some issues with my internet today. Ugh I tried several times to post something to a Facebook group I'm on and my computer was having none of it! I was getting very frustrated.

Finally decided to go on a walk and when I came back and fiddled around with things I finally got it back.

Not only did I go on a nice long walk where there is still snow but I also managed to get a 35 minute bike ride in :) Sweet!

Breakfast: 1/2 Ezekiel english muffin, egg substitute, ham, cheese, orange and cream for my coffees 6pp

Weekly weigh in!

Sorry I haven't been around the last couple of day but I was staying busy with work and with organizing at home. Still work to do but it's looking good :)

This weeks weigh in: -1.7 lbs

I worked out 5 times not including all the moving furniture
I stuck to my plan/menu including eating out at the mall
I drank at least 8 cups of water a day

Very happy with that. Any loss is a good week in my book!

Today I went on a 60 minute walk. I've got to start seriously training for the 10k walking race in May. Can't just do it the week before! I've also found a 5K walk for arthritis in June that I'm going to do.

Breakfast: banana split made with yogurt, cream for coffees 6pp

Lunch: tortilla, ham, egg, cheese, tomatoes 6pp

Dinner: blue menu shepherd's pie and peas, red onion/cucumber/tomato 8pp

Today's nosh:
Breakfast: hot oat bran with pumpkin and a tbsp of sugar free syrup

Taking it easy today!

That's right I wasn't crazy busy today :) for a change!

I did walk Ralph to the dentist to get a 38 minute walk in but it was at a slower pace. Don't worry I've planned on a long walk tomorrow.

I also continued to put things away. Slowly but surely it's coming together!

Today's nosh:

Breakfast: peanut butter waffle with maple syrup

Lunch: home made chicken noodle soup, banana with toasted coconut, cocao nibs and a little pb2

Dinner: spaghetti and meatballs with parmesan cheese

leftover cherry muffin

Ongoing organizing

Well we've moved our bedroom to another room and wow it turned into quite the workout :)

Emptying one room so I could sweep and mop, then came the physical moving of the bigger items and today was spent organizing the stuff that was left after throwing out things that were not longer needed. Sure looks good!

We will also be getting new carpets. It's going to feel like a whole new place.

I had a meeting to go to later today and I got off of the bus early so I could get a 30 minute speed walk in.

Today's nosh:

Breakfast: Pc blue menu whole grain pancake mix which I added egg substitute and milk, banana, 1 tsp of maple syrup, bacon :)

Lunch: 2 tortillas, light cheese, chicken and some leftover coleslaw that was made with Greek yogurt

Ate at the meeting: small salad, 1 tbsp dressing, raw veggies, 2" piece of sandwich with a small slice of beef/veggies/mustard and my treat was a butter tart. No picture because I generally don't take pictures during meetings.
