See you September! 09/30/2017

Hi all.  I hope everyone is well.  I can't say that September went quite the way I had planned.  I was doing so well going into September and then I got rear-ended.  I was stopped at a red light and she hit me.  I know she didn't mean to and accidents happen, but it sure did through a wrench in my plans for the month.  So basically no workouts since I was hit, but did get released from my chiropractor to resume my walking workout dvds.  He said I needed to listen to my body but he thought I was doing well enough to resume my workouts.  No Yoga or Pilates or strength training, but I can do my walking workouts unless it is too much.  So, Hello October!    I started the month at 195.6 (my weigh in on 09/02/201) and my weigh in today was 194.8.  For the month, I am down 0.2.   Here's the other side of October for me.  This is the anniversary month of losing my Momma.  I am trying to focus on the positives.  I have some amazing memories of my Momma.  Some I have shared and

Motivation Monday, September 4th

  Happy Monday!  Already 4 days into September and I'm telling you, I am feeling positive about this month!  For the last couple of weeks, when not suffering with a migraine, I have been working out in the mornings.  While my weigh-in on August 26, 2017, showed a gain and I was at 199.8.  I continued to push through and workout 4 days this past week and it paid off when I weighed in on Saturday, September 2nd with a 4.2 pound loss!  My food was not 100% last week but I do feel good about that loss.  Time to re-group and re-focus on the food.  So I am definitely trying to keep on with my workouts, so today, with my day off, I did the Tuesday workout (4 miles + arm session).  I knew I would have more time today so I did it.  Friday, however, I think I will have to do a "create your own" workout because I will not have time for 5 miles first thing in the morning.   So my cousin has included me in a challenge for the month of September and I posted the "Before"

Hello September! September 1, 2017

I have to tell you that August just flew by for us.  Prepping for vacation, going on vacation, getting back and having so much to catch up on once we got back.  Good things have happened this month!  What happened, you ask?  Well, the thing I have been waiting on for 8 years...I MADE IT UP THE MOUNTAIN BY MYSELF!  Yes, I am proud of this!  I did have to make several stops on the way up and on the way down, but I MADE IT!  For most of the days of our vacation, I hit 10,000 or more steps.  There were times we were in the car so long on the drive that it was impractical to think I would hit 10,000 steps, but I felt good about my efforts on vacation.   There are several places that I wish we'd had a little more time to spend there, but DH and I are already trying to plan another trip to try to ride more trains and see more train museums.  I do hope to see more of Colorado for sure.  When we left the Y of the Rockies, we headed towards Kansas so I could no longer say that I have nev
