It's been forever since I've actually sat down and shared anything. I made myself a list of things to do today and this is the last item to be checked off.
February sucked for me. I lost a total of 6 pounds the whole month. Now I know that I should look at that and be grateful that it wasn't a gain. I am. But, what I'm thinking is that I just wasn't all that focused last month. I took my measurements and nothing really changed - I lost an inch or two here and there. I wasn't pleased. I think that I used starting my job as an excuse. Eating hasn't been my problem it's keeping up with the exercise. When I was home I was working out 1 1/2 hours everyday. Now, not so much.
March hit and I got back with the program. Whatever the program is. I'm not on anything - I'm just doing my own thing. I know that there are a lot of people who have success following a program and that is awesome. Me, not so much. What I'm doing is working right now and that is what I'll continue. If I find that something changes and I need a new outlook, maybe WW. It seems to be the most effective program (in my opinion). Anway...March....I made it a goal to exercise everyday and to lose a total of 15 pounds this month. Yeah, it's a huge goal. Am I setting myself up for disappointment? Maybe. But, so far we're eight days into the month and I'm doing it. The 15 pounds is just so that I can make up for what I didn't lose in February, but if it doesn't happen that's okay. I'll live.
I've been toying with the idea of riding a 15 mile mountain bike ride for ALS (what my mom died from in October). I was very close to my mom. She was my best friend and this disease is awful. ALS is having a ride in Georgia next month and I've been thinking about doing it. 15 miles isn't much (probably a little over an hour ride) but for a 300 pound gal - it's a long ride. We bought a bike trainer and I've been riding everyday - I have to make a decision by this weekend. I don't even know if I can get the time away from work to do it??? I just figured it was for a good cause, and I would benefit in more ways than one (weight loss, exercise, helping others with ALS and a tribute to my mom who loved to ride).
Guess that's all --- I'll be trying to stay more up to date with everyone and comment a little more.
Spring is almost here! :-) Happy days!
