Isn’t life funny sometimes? 2 weeks ago I was lamenting that I’d only lost 2.2 pounds. Then, last week, I only lost 1.2! So, when I saw I had lost another 2.2 pounds this week I was SO HAPPY! It’s all in the perspective I guess!
Some of you may have noticed that I have a new tab at the top of the main page (well, I know at least 1 person did…thanks for your comments Ira!). I’ve set up a page called Daily Exercise. I am going to chronicle my workouts because I have a new goal for myself. Have you ever heard of Couch to 5K? Check out this page and you’ll learn what I’m planning to do (I started yesterday and I’m not dead so that’s a good sign!).
I also started another page called Healthy Food. I know I have a wide variety of recipes I’ve developed (sometimes I can’t even find a recipe I’m looking for!) so I decided I will be pulling the healthy-eating recipes and placing the name, a photo and a link on this page. I thought it might make it easier for me (yep…I’m selfish!) and also for any of you that are looking for healthy recipes that I’ve developed and tested myself!
So things are continuing to go well. It’s never as fast as I’d like it but I have to remember…it took awhile to pile on the weight so it’s going to take awhile to get it off again!
I also want to take a moment to thank all of you who have taken the time to provide your thoughts, encouragment, suggestions and feedback about my journey. There have been times when I’m feeling down about my journey and I will read a comment from one of you and it totally changes my mood. So thank you!
(PS – Don’t think I’ve forgotten about my Apple Challenge from last week! Next week I’m going share the results of my experiment and tell you what I thought about these different types of apples. Let’s just say I’ve gone back and bought more of 2 types already!)
