And around she goes!

I actually lost 3 lbs this past week. So I'm almost to where I was at the end of February. I hope to lose at least 1 lb by next Wednesday's weigh in so I can at least consider March a break even. I'm not ready to post a gain for a month yet. I had hoped to get below 200 this month, but that just wasnt' to be. I'm not letting it bother me though. I'll just do in it April instead!

So I actually logged into my facebook account today and saw a LONG list of requests. I never log in unless I get an e-mail saying someone has poked me, or requested me as a friend, or whatever. So I accepted a few request and logged off. I just never got into that or myspace. Oh well.

I've done some walking with Tigerlilly's challenge, but nothing like what I should have. I've been suffering from a leg cramp since before Easter. Luckily that is clearing up. Wednesday morning I woke up with major back pain. I stayed at home that day. I spent most of the morning unable to stand up straight. I'm much better today and hope to be at full strength on the walking challenge next week. 2 hours or 6 miles a day. I think I can do that, although it won't be easy!!!

Well, I'm gonna slip off now. I might do a little work, or figure out what book I'm reading next. Y'all have a great weekend!

Turning Around...

So, I stayed the same this week instead of gaining again, so things are finally turning around for me. Hopefully next week will show a loss of some small amount. I certainly going to try for it. I hope it goes well...
I'm starting a new 3 month journal on WW this week. This is my way of putting the past few weeks behind me and moving forward.

On the exercise note, Tigerlilly is starting an awesome walking challenge. Go check out the blog, see if you're interested in participating. It's just walking, and it's at your own pace. Sounds like it will be fun, and it starts on Monday!

Well, I'm off to hopefully finish up a couple of things before the end of the work day. (And figure out what I can eat for 6 points tonight!!!!)

Back to it!

I hate coming to work on Mondays. And this one has been ridiculous! It's Spring Break, so there aren't many students around the univ. And there are very few faculty members here as well. But we've been fairly busy all morning. Well, at least for the first 1.5 hours. After that we've slowed down to or normal activity level, but not our normal Spring Break.

The weekend wasn't too terrible. I got some exercise in. I don't think I've lost any weight this week though. Hopefully it's just my usual paranoia though and I'll be surprised Wednesday.

Friday night was anime night. We watched the first 6 episodes of Fushigi Yuugi. I've seen it before, but it's new to all our friends. Since I haven't seen it in 2 years, I'm enjoying watching it again. Although I don't know if we will be meeting to watch this Friday or not. Depends on who all is available.

Saturday night we met up with some friends to do what was probably going to be a one-off dnd game with pre-gen characters. We were going through the Tomb of Horrors to honor Gygax. We were a slightly overpowered party with too much magic, level 9 characters. The four magic users survived the first fight. All characters without magic had died. 1 to a trap, the others in the fight. We decided to slip out of the dungeon, reincarnate the characters, and we'll play again later. Although the druid will not be getting her ape animal companion back. I'm the cleric myself, and it's an experience since I've never played a cleric before. The druid and I are playing to die. We are seeing how long it takes us to kill our characters without doing something incredibly stupid. It would be easier if we were melee characters...

Sunday I sat at home. I did up a tutorial for work on your new e-mail system. I have to do the calendar portion of the new system sometime today. I think I'll wait until after lunch to start on it though...

Y'all have a great week!

"Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution." Dr. David Schwartz

Note: The time has come to start truly believing in yourself! Believe with all of your heart and all of your mind. Keep saying, "I can do it" and make up your mind, You'll do it if you want it bad enough. You will find a way to complete your goals set before you.
Diet, exercise, family problems, Bill payments...
It doesn't matter...
If you want to complete the task... S
et your mind to it and do it! Don't let the little "No" word get in the way... Replace it with "I Will" or "I must" and follow through! It's all up to you... I can do it...

Fat Days

Well, sorry I haven't blogged in a while. Just haven't really had something I wanted to say.

I've had a couple of fat days. Friday and Monday in particular. I didn't really think much of it. I just felt fat those two days. I have days like that occassionally and don't let them get to me. I figure it's part of the journey.

Well, what actually happened this time is this: I gained back all 3 lbs I managed to lose in February. So I guess I'll have to work a little harder this month. I'm not going to let this set me back. I WILL end this month with a loss, even if it's only a half pound. I am determined and I can do it.
