Hi everyone! As of today, Monday, April 21st, I am down 43 lbs. This Journey to Goal is going a lot slower than my 1st Journey to Goal in 1998. While this Journey back to goal is different from my first one, I am still slowly losing 1 to 1.5 lbs a week on most weeks, keeping my elliptical workouts hard and steady, journaling every day, and keeping with my food program. That is SUCCESS in my book. I try to always remember that I’m 16 years older and my body is not what it used to be. 🙂
I’ve created another photo slideshow for Easter 2014 with LeRoy, Rachel and the grandkids. Emily was so cute in her Easter dress and had a blast coloring eggs.
On Saturday, April 19th, I really did not want to do my workout but I dragged myself up on the elliptical. Of course, afterwards I was glad I did. 🙂
On Tuesday, April 15th, I swam at the indoor pool at the motel on the Oregon Coast. 30 minutes and 164 calories burned. Al and I went to Rockaway Beach on the Oregon coast for a couple of days and it was so nice to just relax and listen to the ocean. You can see the slideshow by clicking HERE.
As for my Journey, I did the Elliptical L10, 45 min, 3.4 miles, 411 calories burned. I’ve been having a little pity party because the scale isn’t cooperating with all my good deeds. I know I’m 16 years older and I have to remember not to compare my Journey to Goals. I will keep on keeping on. I listened to the Avoiding Temptation track on my Enjoying Weight Loss Hypnosis CDs.
