Thanks gals for the comments yesterday. Don't know what I'd do without you to spur me on and support me. Yeah, I do know; I'd quit all together. Well, thank God for you all, so that I don't. I'm sure that's why He led me to blog (through Cara). I have friends now that care about me, that I can talk to candidly about my weight loss and exercise or lack there of and understand and want me to do better.
I did some Yoga yesterday from a DVD that Dani brought me. Boy is that tough at first. I had no idea. I thought it was just a wussy type of exercise but it isn't. I sure do need the stretching and need to learn to balance better. I am going to try this for a while. Of course I'll get bored with it too and stop it but maybe by then I will have learned enough from the DVD that I can do it anywhere without out the TV to help. She also brought a Latin dance one and my hips just won't move like they are supposed to. Don't think I will do much with that one.
The funny thing about the walking (wancing) that I was doing is that I really enjoyed it with the iPod. I really enjoyed bopping with the music and enjoyed laughing at myself when I'd stop to do the Boot Scootin' Boogie. I'm just such a lazy person I couldn't make myself get out of the chair and put my shoes on to go outside and walk. It's one of those habits that I am just going to have to work hard on to make myself form. I know I have to do that or I won't be around much longer.
As for the "eating vacation." I've eaten some things I shouldn't. I've had a small slice (1/2 inch) of Friendship Cake every evening for the past 3 days, and the piece of pizza and ice cream cone Sunday for lunch, but I haven't deviated from my eating plan in any other way. I have no idea how many calories the cake had but I went with the highest caloric cake I could find on SP to enter into my eating log. I did go out to eat last night and had some oven fried chicken and baked potato with sour cream and I only had one bite of the homemade hot roll that came with it. The salad came with gooey dressing on the side but I took your advice and ate it by dipping my fork in the dressing first then picking up a fork full of greens. I'd never tried that before and it was pretty good that way. My calories have been a little high because of the splurges I've eaten but I expected that. Will find out tomorrow morning what it did to my weight. I won't be staying on this vacation. I'm back to my regular ways today. I just can't chance ruining everything I've worked so hard for all this time.
Getting ready to go outside and work on the project I mentioned last week. Still not going to tell you what it is yet. You'll see it in pictures later in the week.
Have a good and healthy day my blog buddies!!
