I got e-mail from the Disney marathon people... I'm going to have to check hotels some time in the next few months. But I need to tidy up the house and get laundry together if we're going fishing and to the beach...
Weigh-In Wednesday: What have you started enjoying in your quest to lose weight or get in shape?
Being a bit more active and eating better.
Both are HUGE changes for me since I've always tended to live in my head and not really care about anything else. I wasn't especially active in my youth and I wasn't especially mindful of healthy eating either. After 14, I never exercised since PE was no longer required and even when it was required, I wasn't exactly a star. I got B's in PE for making an effort and participating, but I certainly didn't make A's for exceling in games! My breakfast and lunch of those years consisted of a cold pepsi for breakfast and a bag of M&Ms at lunch and all the coffee I could swipe from Mrs. White's office.
These days? I know I'm certainly better about exercise when I'm looking at racing in January, but in the off times I still try to do something a few times a week. My interest waxes and wanes but overall it's def. better than before. On the food front I also make more of an effort. Don't doubt that I'm sincere either -- I've gone months and months with nary a change in my shape or weight but I still kept up with trying to be active and eat healthy. I had to like doing it to keep it up then otherwise I would have thrown in the towel and given it up.
I have to confess though -- I love, love, love seeing pounds drop off again without changing any of my habits. I knew I was doing the right things. I knew being patient was going to pay off eventually. Six weeks since my check-up with Dr. Hall and I'm 5 lbs lighter!
Seriously, I think I could have kissed him when he told me my thyroid levels were normal again.
