The verdict is in. I’m 3.6# away from my goal for today! Not too shabby! (I’m choosing to be positive about things! LOL) On a nice note, my friend Tami who promised me a pedicure and manicure if I made my goal gave me 1/2 of my prize! I have in my hot little hands the gift certificate for the manicure. Now I have to decide when to get one. 🙂 She said when I hit 152# I’ll get the other certificate! She’s a wiley one!
This morning I did NOT want to work out. I kept thinking to myself, I’ll do it later. Well, I KNOW later today I need to do some strength training. So I just rolled my old bag of bones out of bed and did an easy 3 APs on the elliptical. I have every intention of doing either the 30 day shred this afternoon or some other DVD. It’s time to get those muscles sore again!
Supper last night was eh. It was basically a stir-fry with peas in it. I probably wouldn’t make this version again since I have others that have similar ingredients and we like better. I will say I’m surprised that C liked it! That kid is super fussy sometimes.
So my day is like this, Doctor, stores, home, lunch, strength, rest.
Tomorrow my 3 girlfriends and I get together in Tomah for a lunch-chat date. I’m looking forward to some ‘women-time’ with my ladies!
I’m back from all my running around. The appointment went well. Of course the Dr.’s scale is cruel, LOL, but other than that it was a good appointment. We agreed that next year I can get my cholesterol rechecked. She’s happy with my HDL being so good and my triglycerides that she isn’t concerned that my total is 220ish. She said to keep eating healthy and exercising and things will go just fine for me. We went over my family history again and so she could type it all into the computer. I have heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and cancer in my immediate family. Not great eh? It’s okay, I’m doing what I can to prevent those things from happening to me and my children. It’s never to late to try to be better than you are.
After that I went to Pierce’s for a few good buys from their flyer. Then it was off to Walmart for the other things. As much as I hate Walmart and crab about shopping there it is so much cheaper! The tea that DH likes is about 90¢ cheaper at Walmart. Finally, I ended up at the library. I got the girls a few new books and picked up the ones we had on hold. I then came home to eat lunch. I had flatout pizza. It was a piece of flatout with 1 t. olive oil on the crust. I sprinkled on garlic salt and basil. I topped it with peppers, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and cut up string cheese. When I ate it I scooped some salsa on top! Delicious! (I do have a photo, but my camera is charging.)
Soon I’m going to head downstairs to do something. I’m tired of my No More Trouble Zones DVD and I’m not feeling the Shred either. I just don’t think I want to look at Jillian today! LOL So, I think I’ll watch another guilty pleasure of mine, “The Housewives of Orange County” and do my own thing. I know a ton of different arm/ab/leg exercises. So I’ll just wing it!
