Spring brings with it the chance to exercise outdoors – I’ve been moving alot in the evenings after work – walking the dog, and tonite we took a little hike in the woods near the house. Feels good to be outside. I can’t wait to start working in the yard and doing some gardening.
Weight. Yes, I’ve been back on the scale and last Wednesday I recorded my lowest weight since starting this endeavor last summer. Not a huge victory, but a move in the right direction which was terrific considering I was under considerable stress due to a deposition that was being taken on Wednesday. I’ve never been deposed and I didn’t do anything wrong, but it was stressful just the same. However, I held it together and was very proud of myself. Then I crashed and burned on Thursday afternoon and have to admit that I slept a lot this weekend.
I’m tracking my food pretty well and was OK yesterday for Easter, but have to admit that my cousin made her lasagna and I had to have a piece. It was delicious and worth the cheat. Took home no leftovers and was craving vegetables for lunch. Bought a healthy salad and a bottle of white balsamic for the dressing.
I happen to be listening to the news and two-thirds of American women are overweight – many of them obese. I’m not going to be one of them.
