Forgot to post my minutes yesterday, but I didn't realize how much I walked until I started writing it down! Been doing ok, but really tired lately, working through it though.

Total walking from last couple days 100 minutes so 233 + 100= 333 total minutes.

adding in 20 minutes walking at work on thursday....yesterday was a wash...work was a disaster....when you are new everything that goes wrong is automatically your fault.... I just need to get a plan together, work it through and slow down........however I did not find comfort in food for my sadness...major accomplishment on my part
will be spending today regrouping and getting stronger on path, overall though happy I did not binge to cope

333 + 20=353

Had an interesting weekend, worked a lot in the garden and man I have sore legs!

25 minutes walking on Friday and 135 minutes gardening on Saturday

160 + 353= 513 minutes!

So proud of myself today, I felt tired, but I did yoga and walked! I am not giving up on myself!

30 min of yoga + 35 min of walking= 65 min

65+513= 578 minutes

I definitely had to take advantage of the warm weather and get in a nice jog outside. Was out for about a half hour

Ok everyone I'm here....March has been an extremely difficult month....my almost ninety year old grandmother had hip replacement surgery and then had complications afterward but now she is in a rehab facility and working on getting stronger every day....she had to have a feeding tube put in her stomach because she still can't chew but hopefully that will on be temporary....and then someone who I care for very much found out her 2 year old amazingly vibrant and beautiful daughter has two brain tumors...one was removed by brain surgery and now chemo begins to get the other tumor and hopefully knock the cancer out for good...they are up at st judes which is the best place they can possibly be...needless to say I did what I usually do and get lost the problems of others and neglect myself but I got on the scale this morning to see where I'm at and I came in at 303.8 which was my Feb weight so I'm ok with that....I did not use food to comfort or handle stress..however I did not exercise which is a big bad no no for me.....
I'm beginning March today and will be looking to get in 660 minutes of exercise which I know I can totally do...
I need to push through and keep working because getting under 300 is a mental barrier I have so that needs to be my main objective over the next 30 days....

700 minutes is where we are at right now so let's have that number go up and up

Ok March has just been a disaster....I took a weight on Saturday morning and came in at 303.6 which would mean for the whole month I lost .2 lbs....I didn't take any measurements though which looking back maybe I should have but you live and you learn....my weight this morning was insanely high but I did have a lot of sodium yesterday and this my pms weight gain time so I'm not sweating it too bad....I am a little disappointed in myself but I'm trying to use it as a catalyst for a good April....My bday is the 20th so I'm looking to get back on target and weigh under 300.....I know that as long as I keep going I will get there....maybe not as soon as I want to but I must keep working on it....

so My goal from today to april 19th is 1400 minutes of exercise.....

Hey jenny awesome to see you! Hope you join us for April!

March was pretty good for me, I had some things happen and had to do adjusting, but I am proud of myself for not giving up! I am looking forward to getting my bike in may!!

I walked 100 minutes wednesday and thursday, but it was in March oh well haha

Ok I have to come clean....I've been failing as of late....I am not making time to exercise like I should because I've convinced myself that I can't get everything in I want to....my eating has been borderline sometimes good and sometimes not as good as I should...I took a weight this morning and came in at 309.00 which means I've put back on close to eight pounds but I am recognizing my stumble and am just taking a deep breath and begin walking the path again. My birthday is next week and this is not where I saw myself at the beginning of the year but I'm lower than when I started and can begin again to make progress....I need to create realistic goals, I tend to over shoot and then don't deal with the disappointment well when I don't hit my mark....I always realize 90 days or so is a stumbling block for me...this is pretty standard on my part.....
So down to earth within grasp achievement
April 13 309

Ma,
I know it can be difficult getting back into the swing of things. I had the same tendency to make unrealistic goals and then give up when I wasn't up to par. Don't give up, you can do this. You are not the same woman one year ago and one year from now you will be a transformed woman yet again. Your ferocity is your strength, find it in yourself now to keep going.

I have forgotten to put my minutes on here for April so I will start off this month with my walking.

290 Minutes of walking makes 290 Minutes for April so far!

You know Syl...sometimes you're not so bad
Ok got in a walk at work on lunch today....forgot my gym shoes which wasn't smart...these work shoes stink for walking but still pushed on and made it

20 minutes walk= 290 + 20=310

Just need to keep working to get back in the groove
