Was actually Monday, but I got to the bank today to see the amount. Deposited more than half of it into Savings. I’m on my way, though, I am not so sure it will work out perfectly, I am indeed saving a goodly sum of money. It’s actually great to have a challenge that I might not be able to achieve, because it is really pushing me to achieve it.
Oooh, I am so so happy, I have 17 pounds lost. I think at 20 I’ll have to stop and try to maintain. BUt I could maybe lose an extra 5 or so to give me some wiggle room
DOes 20 odd minutes of walking really count? I started to run today and was just finally too tired after working all night, and everything hurt, so I walked for a bit, and then came home to relax a bit.
I guess it does count, but compared to my usual, I feel a bit lazy. My main fear is that I am going to undo the good weight loss I’ve had…. :(
something pretty cool. Last night I checked my heart rate. Resting it is now 54. This is excellent. It’s below normal, and indicates that I am starting to get fit, possibly very fit. I was so shocked, I checked it several more times. It really is 54=56 resting. Cool.
I’ve lost 16 pounds, but I don’t believe it. Just because it was so busy at work last night that I had nothing to eat from about 9 am until about 2 am, so when I got on the scale, I was plenty dehydrated, so while it felt good, I imagine it was simply a figment of reality. I’m certainly not going to try it again to see if its true, I’ll be eating sooner, I hope.
ALmost didn’t go today because it was a hideous night at work, and I was so so tired, but, in the end I forced myself to do it. I am glad I went if only because I burned off a few calories. I only did 46 minutes, 21 of jogging and the rest walking….
I’ve really got to do a big workout soon (90 min or so) or I won’t lose any more weight….
I only ran for 20 mins this morning, as my legs hurt and I had already walked suring my lunch break at work. I am finding I can go longer without having to stop and walk. Unfortunatly my knees do hurt, A lot, but it is getting better. I’m really pleased at my progress. It is getting so hot, however, I’m going to have to get some more workout clothing….
It used to be that I procrastinatedabout little stuff, and then it caused me small bits of anxiety…Now, I find I am procrastinating about big stuff, taxes, grad school application….
Draggin my feet. Well. I must work for 4 more days straight so when I am off, I am going to focus on those two things, Application, and taxes. Taxes should be easy, and actually the application is almost complete, so it is probably going to be easy as well…..I think I may be a bit lazy….
Now that I have the charger, what have I done? All I’ve done is charge the computer. I MUST open up the computer, and use it. But the 15th or so, I should have everything complete.
off. I’m thrilled. I must keep going, however, if I am ever to reach a healthy weight. At this point, I look so much better it is tempting to slip back into some poor eating habits.
I’m fighting this with the Nutridiary.com since it logs up the nutrients I get, I don’t want to waste calories on somehting that gives me nothing…Hopefully this will continue to work.
Started to read a new book today. It’s set in Wales a long long time ago. Unfortunately so far, it seems to be identical story line to so many other stories set in Wales a long long time ago that it isn’t holding my interest. I am going to continue a few more chapters to see if it improves.
I was surprised by a test at the end of my shift today. I passed it, and feel pretty good about that, considering I had been up most of the night.
I got up today and was very surprised at how much my appearance has changed. I’m not quite sure what I weigh today, and I won’t know until I go into work at 0300 am this morning, but I looked so good! I’m so happy that I started this. It is such a boost tomy morale when my clothing fits.
It seems like this may be my new home. It has things I really want. screened porch, space, a passive solar heating design…
and the landlord is wonderful, he asked, do you want a fenced yard? for my new dog….
I go see it next week….
to exersise daily, from exersise 3 times a week. For the past two days I’ve managed to walk for 60 minutes and run for 30. I need to keep it up, but I need to do something everyd ay, even on the days I work.
Today I went for my usual RUn/Walk through the Wetlands walk area and was surprised by a particular woodpecker. He must have been visiting a very Hollow Tree. The sound just vibrated through the air, It was more like a drum than a usual woodpecker rat a tat tat.
It was great, and reminded me once again why I don’t listen to my ipod when running.
For me thirteen has always been Lucky. I now have lost 13 pounds. It isn’t as much as I would have liked, but it is a very very lovely place to be, and much better than gaining 13 pounds… I’m feeling motivated to continue, so I hope next week I can post some more loss!!
48: dew sparkling on a spider web early in the morning.
49. Wild sprouting small spring flowers.
50. the smell of the pines in the clean air here in the morning.
30 minutes today. I think I may have hurt my leg a little, so I’m really resting it now, but it was great to be able to have increased from 20 to 30….still going very slooooow though. I tried to also increase my speed today.
It’s a bit of a stretch but it is really do-able. Then I will be able to move and spend some money on the move, but still have some in savings.
So, I need to save about 600 a week for the next 7 weeks. I am making good money for the next seven weeks and I signed up for 16 hours of Overtime, soooo, I should be able to meet the goal. I chose the amount because it is a stretch, and I may have to get creative, (Roll pennies etc) to meet it, rather than choosing a goal I am sure I can meet.
