I hate to admit but I haven’t been watching what I eat like I should. I’m still doing pretty good but I know I could do better. Just to give myself a kick in the butt I did an extra 10 min on my exercise ball and 10 min on the elliptical.
I was also checking out Linda’s Low Carb site to get some recipe ideas and make sure I’m eating right. I haven’t completely gotten off track but if I want to lose my remaning 10 #s then I need to buckle down and make sure I’m eating right and exericising.
On the plus side I make sure I walk 2.5 miles each day, so that’s a big motivator. I definetly need to keep up with this because walking is so good for you and it makes me feel great!!!!
Another great motivator is that I have to dress up for work tomorrow and I’m wearing a skirt that I wore back in October and it was bit tight on me. Well now it’s loose! I think this may be the last time I can actually wear it without fear of it falling down. I need to keep reminding myself that if I don’t keep up with this that this sz 16 skirt will be my permanent size and I really want to go to the next level and get down to a size 14. In my adult like a size 14 has always been my smallest so this is always a “sentimental” number for me. Of course, I’d like to get under that number to. Ahh…so many goals, but I know I can meet them all!!!!!
I have no idea what’s wrong with it. I switched out the battery and even wiped it down with a soft cloth to clean it up a bit and it still wont’ come on. Not too long ago it wasn’t working right so I think it’s done for. Bummer for me because I had just gotten under 200 lbs and am so anxious to track my ongoing process. I guess this will keep me from weighing myself too often. I’m hoping in the next week or so go get a new one. As much as not obsessing over the scale is a “good” thing not being able to track my progress and keep myself on track is a “bad” thing.
In other news I bought a size 16 pants not too long ago and I swear they are baggy on me already. They are baggy through the legs and while not super loose through the waist I can definetly tell that they are a bit looser than when I first bought them. That makes me very happy!!!
I also can’t wait becasuse I finally earned enough points through my Mypoints account to get a $50 Giftcard and I decided to go with Lane Bryant to get some new clothes! They have some clearance items on the website that I have in my shopping cart just waiting for the Giftcard to get here. Hopefully it doesn’t take much longer because I cannot wait to get some new clothes. Too bad Lane Bryant store issn’t closer to me so I could try some clothes on. Who knows though I might make the trip anyway to get some new clothes.
