Feeling Better

Well today I weighed at the gym and was at 146. Yippee! Was stuck at 148/149 for about a week and finally started moving again...147 and today 146! I am now wearing a SI-LOC belt during workouts and walking on the treadmill. Today must have placed perfectly on the hips because right leg felt energetic after walk. First time that has happened. Hope it continues. God is good! Always!!!

Helped out at NCPC last night for the Orpheus parade. We grilled hamburgers and hotdogs and served along with all the fixings. BIG crowd...we set up tables beside the front of the church and the praise band set up outside the Sanctuary front doors. The music was great and so was the food.

Well I've been away from the blog for awhile because I've been frustrated with my leg pain. I've just began working with a new PT and am focused on core strengthening. Have lots of new stretches and exercises to begin to learn...some will be tough because there is lots of balance involved...remember CORE!

Still walking everyday and have just reached a grand total of 10 pounds lost from weight when I began the NO EXCUSES plan. Have found no problem in curbing my need to munch. I do have something to eat at short intervals during the day and still manage to fit in my chocolate ice cream. Have lost lots of inches but did not measure at the beginning. Should have done that then I could be happy about the progress. Since my clothes are fitting very loose now I'm happy with that.

Ultimate goal of fitness and no pain with a strong body. I have lots left to do in this life and I want to be able to do it to the fullest.

February is here already?

I cannot believe how this week has flown by. Finally got back to my full workout at the gym. Did very well and know I can now continue with the plan.

In addition to my gym workout I've been "working out" with our current lodger...Hambone, the beagle. When I take him for a "walk" it is more like a "run" where I'm trying to hold back a dragster flying down the strip. This little dynamo can move!! The only thing that stops him is seeing another dog or cat. He wants to play with anything that passes by. It is sad to see him trying to get to a "friend" and sad to hear him whine and sometimes bark. We have found him a home which we believe will provide a boy to play with as well as a couple of other dogs. Still working out the details and I'm trying to get ready for the separation. Hambone is so cute and affectionate but I know we cannot keep him and give him the home he needs. I know that sounds selfish but it is reality. I don't want to hold on to him just because some think we should when I know it's better he have a family who will be there for him all the time.
