I was so nervous before I stepped on the scale. I thought it was going to say 1 lb or something but no it said 2 so I’m happy. I haven’t been going down on weight like a use to though, 3 or so lbs a week. I’m not discouraged though. As the photo says, when you feel like quitting just keep pushing and that’s what I will do.
Yesterday, I didn’t go skating like I usually do because I had to throw some things out for bulk trash. So I added it as a cleaning workout. Anybody who tells you that you are not working out when you’re cleaning is a liar and doesn’t clean at all. When I removed a BIG table from the kitchen to outside on the curb, that worked up a sweat lol. That’s that only thing that when out though. I swept up the space after that.
I’m thinking about leaving the bars that’s I’ve been having a snacks alone for a while because I realize that they could be hurting more than helping with some of the ingredients inside of them. I will leave them a long for a while and see what happens. Eveything else I’ve been eating as been fresh foods and veggies, with a little bit of sweet snacks here and there. Example, girl scout cookies. It is that time of the year and I can’t resist but I can restrain myself for going overboard. 4 cookies are 160 calories and that’s my average snack in my lunchbox.
Yesterday I didn’t go to the park because of had to take care of a hair product label that needed to be created and it rained as soon as 5 o’clock hit. It’s sunny today so we’ll see if I can go skating today. Sharri says I’ve been doing good on the scale so yay for that.

Dinner for last night, I started to eat it before I knew it so I wasn’t able to take a picture of it but I’ll post up a Chicken and Dumpling picture that’s similar. ****takes time to look up the picture**** Ok so I tried to look up a picture and everything was soup. We didn’t have soup. We had 1 boneless skinless chicken breast and 4 small dumplings with some spinach.
I don’t have much to say today. I weighed myself this morning and Sharri said it was a good number so yay. Yesterday I skated 2 miles instead of 3 and went home to clean a little. Today I will be doing my Flat Belly Execises.
40 Leg Lifts
20 Bicycle Crunches
30 Leg Lifts
10 Minute Workout (It says run but I can’t so… yeah)
Steamed Carrots and Broccoli
Homemade Wheat Bread
Homemade Garlic Spread
This is last night’s dinner. The meat that you see in the image was actually no good so I stopped eating it and replaced it with a cup of Bolthouse Farm’s Mango protein.
According to the app I’m using, Sparkpeople, I should be 137 right now. I don’t take what they say seriously because I’m a woman and my body fluctuate constantly. Especially on my time of the month, which was last week. It totally messed up my count. Sharri said that I was a 136.5 before it started.
I did the flat belly exercise this week and it wasn’t bad at all. I’m happy that it separates the sets for the crunches and leg raises. I can’t do the jumping jacks so I still have to come up with a alternative. We went to a park close to the house and I skated while sharri ran. We went for 3 miles before we stopped because sharri is training for a 5k she wants to do.
I’m happily keep up with my lunchboxes. They might be for little kids but they are a great way of take food with you in small portions. I love having snacks through the day and not feel hungry until I get home.
I’m going to the park again tonight to skate. We might do 3 miles again, I don’t know. I don’t know what we are having for dinner, I will update this post tonight.
My gallery page is linked with my Instagram page. I’m not able to blog everyday like I want to but I’m constantly posting pictures of how I’m doing on my path to weight loss as well as personal pictures I would love to share with everyone.
I was looking on pinterest to see if I could find a out plan that could work for me. I could do this 2 or 3 days a week. Maybe on the days that I’m not at the park. BTW, it’s still sunny outside and I have high hopes. I’ve done these exercises before so I know I can do them. Except for one, jumping jacks. I’m top heavy, meaning big boobs and jumping jacks are my enemy lol. I will have to exchange the jumping jacks for another exercise.
Yesterday I went over my calories but everyone can do that ever once in a while, there’s nothing wrong with that. I was planning on going to the park after work to do some walking and the fitness trail but it rained ALL DAY. So I went home after work expecting to relax a little, eat dinner and then workout to a video on Amazon. I got the first two done but then we started watching Once Upon A Time and got sucked in lol. BTW one of my favorite shows. Seriously check it out.
