So since I last updated you all on my challenge I have completed my 5K and came in 19th out of 31. Not bad for my first race. I have walked 11.5 miles and have exercised twice and we played tennis for an hour. I’m happy with that so far this week. This afternoon Mike and I are going to go geo-caching. Friday I’m taking off from the exercise routine except I will do some crunches, I’m trying hard to get back into them, up to 25 so far without dying. I was doing 75 last May so have a ways to go. Saturday is another challenge Brenda and I set for ourselves. We are going to walk from my house to hers and back. A total of 6 miles and hope to do it in 90 minutes or so.
I didn’t weigh myself this week, I’ll do that next Monday so I can’t say if I’m up, down or the same. I’m feeling good though.
My menu is still in the planning stages but I did do this yesterday….
Made apple sauce, whole wheat low fat chicken enchiladas, brown rice with veggies and skinless chicken breasts, a chicken pasta hot dish and a brown rice chicken hot dish. Pumpkin cake with light cream cheese frosting and apple sauce muffins. Not all low fat or low calorie but close. As I was putting this all in the freezer for next week I counted 7 meals taken care of plus there’s pork chops and ribs and an arm roast in the freezer plus a chili and lots of frozen veggies. So I’m set for next week. It’s a good thing to because Monday I paid Mike tuition for college so there won’t be any extra shopping the rest of this month.
So I’m going to say this week was great. I feel good, I can say I look good in some clothes I haven’t been and I’m learning more do’s and don’ts.
I will tell you between my period over the weekend and the stress of money (or lack there of) made the beginning part of this week hard but with lots of advice from friends, lots of prayers with the Lord and just knowing that I have to take care of me so I can take care of others, well I’m back at it all full swing with a good frame of mind and so ready to rock and roll to 180 lbs.
I have been visited by quite a few Hotties and it has been a blast reading your comments and then checking out what’s happening in your world. I have followed when I can and I think always left a comment. I am so proud of all of you for your life style changes. It is a pleasure to get to know you all. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and your encouragements.
Now take care and have a great TGIF and a blessed weekend.
