Takin' It Off Tuesday

(I am running behind this week, so even though it's Thursday, I'm just going to pretend that it's Tuesday).

This week was a much better week scale-wise. I didn't see huge changes in numbers, but it did move and it was in the right direction. complaints from me. Also, I can continue to see that clothes are fitting differently. YAY!! I drank a lot more water and really limited how much soda I drank. I could have done much better in the eating department, but I did have one pretty major success with that. We went out to eat one day and I had a delicious sandwich. I could have very easily eaten the whole thing, but decided to just eat half and bring the rest home and eat it the next day for lunch. That is a pretty unusual thing for me to do. Now, if I could just do better with eating in general, that would be great! I look at it like juggling. The balls that I need to keep in the air are exercise, eating well and drinking a lot of water. The problem is that I really don't know how to juggle and can only seem to keep two "balls" in the air at any one time.

I walked 31 miles this past week and my goal for this week is 25. As of today (Tuesday :)) I have walked 8 miles and "ran" on the elliptical machine for 5 so I am saying that I am up to 13 miles right now.

I have a goal to lose 40 pounds total (I have lost 13 so far) by the time my 40th birthday rolls around in July. That would be such a great gift to myself :)
