Spring?? 3/20/2013

All I know is that the phrase “wind chill” is still in the weather reports and that I wore long underwear to work today.  But okay, it’s spring…

Still making weight loss progress.  Yesterday’s ww w-i brought a 1 pound loss, which surprised me because the three days preceeding w-i weren’t all that good for eating.  But I’m still tracking – both points and calories – and I do see my calorie intake is mostly lower than it had been pre-ww, so that’s a good thing.  I’m still struggling with planning, but I just have to keep at it.

This past weekend I purchased my fitness class punchcard (the 2 classes per week quantity) and went to a Zumba class.  I forget how fun the class is – I just love the music!  The weather hasn’t motivated me to want to leave the house much this week – I’ve just had enough of this winter weather! – but I might go to a class tomorrow night.  I have to download the class schedule for the spring session. 

Next week I have my annual physical, so it’ll be nice to have a weight loss when I get on the scale at the doc’s office.  Though I’ve been taking my my bp med faithfully each day, I’m not sure how my bp has been.  Since my last doc appt back in Sept, I’ve known that the bp software no longer works on our computer and that ticked me off and discouraged me from taking regular readings (knowing the data couldn’t be uploaded to the computer).  But I suppose a week’s worth of readings will be better than nothing, so I will try to get back into the routine, and jot down the readings in a little notebook I placed by my bp machine.

    Enjoy the last of winter and the fluctuations of spring while you can; we’ve been in the 70s and 80s of late and so far behind on our rainfall that I’ve had to start watering on a regular basis. What a pain in the behind.

    Good job on your continued success.
