Exercise & Snowflake Update

March 10th, 2014 at 05:44 am

I did get six workouts in last week. I skipped Saturday and Sunday because of guests. Although my sister kept trying to get me to do some exercise cards...my back just can't do some of those moves! I did lift weights two days last week, so only 8 more of those days to go this month. And I still need 14 cardio workouts. I'm about to leave for the gym to get both cardio and weight lifting in.

The really good news is that by watching calories and exercising more I have lost 7.2 pounds in 21 days. I have much more to lose, but it nice to see the scale change! One day at a time, one meal at a time, it all comes together in meeting a goal. This is similar to saving money, too. Although for me, it takes a little more willpower to watch my food intake. I use myfitnesspal.com to track my calories and exercise. I have logged in for 21 days straight. That part gets a little addictive. I've also been reading blogs on the site to get inspiration. As we here at SA know, reading others successes and struggles is helpful in reaching our goals.

My snowflakes are coming in slow this month. I did use the $25 Target gift card yesterday when I bought groceries. I will send that and the savings from a lower water bill in to the mortgage today. That makes $29.33 for the month of March. There are snowflakes making there way here, but the arrival is unknown for now. Smile

Are you working on a health goal? Did you make a payment towards debt this week? Are you expecting some snowflakes soon?

    I took Saturday off of exercising (first time in 17 days) and I had 1/2 a shamrock shake because I love them. Yesterday, I was back at the Y and used the stepper. Made it to the top of the Empire State Building (117 floors) in 19 minutes. I'm feeling it today. Might only go to the top of the Great Pyramid of Giza (77 stories) and then do 2 miles on the elliptical. I am down about ten pounds and am finally noticing a flat stomach and skinnier thighs Big Grin I like being a size small without the assistance of a panty girdle!
