Woo-hoo last work day of this week! Good steps yesterday 10,873 and 4 points - didn't make my fiber.

Since today is my "Friday" going in casual and catching up on filing. Grasshopper has finally learned from her former teachers what drowning in accounting really means, lol. Some days I really wish I had an assistant.

Will try to fit mini challenge in after I get to work since I will be the only one there holding down the fort so to speak. Wishing you all a wonderful day.

Good Morning!

Yes - Track
Yes - 30 min cardio
Yes - strength exercises
No - Fiber - still struggling.
Yes - No eating after dinner

I am not really doing great on the dieting part but tracking the food is making me more conscious of all my bad choices and where to switch items and what to look for in food. So hopefully next time i go grocery shopping, i will be making better choices.
Did get my walk in yesterday with one of the girls, despite how humid and muggy it was. We do a mile, with a small hill. makes the day go by faster, and its just nice to be up on my feet.another walk at home when the sun goes down a little so it was somewhat cooler.

Hope all of you enjoy a great 4th.

Good morning Sassies!!! Yesterday was a pretty good day

Track- Y
Steps- 11,502
Strength-y along with 30 min on the treadmill
No Food after dinner-Check!
5 points!

This whole not eating after dinner and getting my fiber to 20g is the hardest part of this challenge for me and I love it! I've always been obsessed with getting my fiber. However, I used to buy fiber bars and eat fiber cereals. It's particularly difficult now because I'm a part of another challenge that forbids processed foods like cereals and nutrition bars. Soooo it's difficult getting the fiber in with fruits and veggies. lol. I love my fruit and have to limit my intake because i can easily go overboard. Veggies are a different story! lol. I love this challenge because it pushes me to eat more veggies!!!


Quitting is NOT an option!

I don't see pics either. Sorry ladies, this is going to be a downer. Just feeling so beaten right now. In addition to the strength exs I did yesterday I also spent an hour on the treadmill (TM). Scales did not move today. Dentist trip did not accomplish what I thought it would. But dealing. Going back the end of the month. Heard from my doc. Apparently my 30 pound loss over last year did not help me with my cholesterol at all. Got card in mail said all normal from bloodwork but when I called to request actual numbers I was told cholesterol was exactly same as last year. Hoping she just misread it. Will see when I get full report. So disappointed. Going to go change my clothes and go sweat upstairs. Haven't done strength exs (or as Brenda says "A&D"Wink for today yet. Glimmer of happiness, our younger son is coming in tonight from Chattanooga. He'll be here for the long weekend. Will be spending good part of the day tomorrow with him and our older son and his family for a grill-out 4th of July party. At least it will be at their house and ours can stay clean for a bit longer. Smile

Congratulations on using 30 pounds! Each pound of fat represents 3500 calories. Your courageous person, because you're taking on the challenge of change. Wishing you a wonderful visit with your son. Smile

Evening Sassies! Who stole the pics?? Got a great killer workout in at pt this afternoon & am already feeling sore...thank heaven Thursday is my planned rest day...though might not get much rest as I have chores planned & then a pool party. Oh, I feel soooo naked-my pedo fell off my waistband & hit the floor just right (or wrong!) & shattered; I ordered one exactly like it from Amazon but it won't be here til Monday so I'll be guesstimating steps til then.

Laurie-oh good, I get to meet your girl; I'll save her a treat

Becky-you're doing great just by making changes in your life; the scale is just a number. Enjoy time with your sons.

Won't be in the computer til Friday so...

no late snack-y

Steps-4221 (before pedo broke!)

Have a great Fourth & I'll see you all Friday.
