Another week has flown by.  I swear, the older I get, the faster time flies.  My sleep is still backwards (awake all night, sleep most of the day) and really all I can do is work on getting it back to a more normal schedule.  I go in cycles, it seems.  🙁

Elliptical4_10_14I did the elliptical again yesterday, which meant I did it two days in a row.  I skipped today and will do it again tomorrow.  I’m really trying to add more sessions during the week by doing the elliptical two days on, one day off.  I didn’t last the last time I tried this but maybe I will this time.  All I can do is to keep trying.

Today I got up and made a new recipe, adapted from another given to me, Lasagna Soup.  Al and I both loved it.  Check it out if you’re interested.

Speaking of new recipes, I have really been enjoying cooking.  I guess I have finally become a cook.  I can tell you I’ve never thought of myself as a cook; just a person that can throw meals together.  I’m actually having a lot of fun creating recipes.

button3up As for my Journey, I did the Elliptical L10, 45 min, 3.8 miles, 459 calories burned.  It was the second day in a row.  I am staying on course with my eating and exercise.  I feel good. I listened to the  Appreciating Yourself track on my Enjoying Weight Loss Hypnosis CDs.   button2up

    Your doing great Dottie ! I agree the older I get the faster times seems to go as well. Its unreal. I think your doing amazing at the elliptical , I know for me .. I can be an all or nothing gal, but sometimes force myself to take a day off in between. I think we can only push ourselves so much. There are times I really feel it especially when I push myself harder and longer on the treadmill. Like everything else.. balance is key. I am SO happy your enjoying your cooking because we all reap the benefits !! LOL THANKS so much for adding the nutritional and points. Makes it so easy !!

    Keep Going Dottie, your doing it and you look GREAT !!!

      Marina, I tend to overdo also and this time around I’m trying to keep my exercise at a level I can maintain. Otherwise, I will get overwhelmed and quit. I like my exercise to be something I enjoy and can do throughout my life. I do love cooking now. 🙂

    Keep up the good work! I have been following you for a long long time. I reached lifetime and have been on again off again all my life with weight watchers, but I keep on trying! And to me that is all that counts!!

    Loved what you said, ” I keep on trying! And to me that is all that counts!!”. So very true! I’m a true believer in NEVER GIVING UP.
