Break time!

I've decided that I'm going to take an indefinite break from blogging. I love blogs, but I haven't been doing mine justice and it's making me feel guilty. I am focusing all of my energy on other things right now, but I will probably give blogging another try when I get some of these other things accomplished.

However, I probably will still stop by and update my weight loss ticker, because it does make me happy to see the numbers change on that :)

Takin' It Off Tuesday

Wow! I actually made it on a Tuesday!

Ok - I am getting excited because I am 1 pound away from my 20 pound mark!!! Yay! But...that one pound isn't leaving easily, that's for sure. I was hoping to be at 20 pounds last week so that I would have a few extra days for my goal of 30 pounds by June 6, but it didn't happen. I have a feeling it's not going to happen by tomorrow either. That's ok. Slow and steady, slow and steady...

A couple weeks ago was Spring Break and that was a little bump in the road for me because it was harder to find the time to exercise and I ate too much :) It was worth it though. It was a fun week.

Since then, I have picked up the pace with walking. I think I walked around 30 miles last week. I wrote it down because I can't remember anything these days, but it's out in the car and I just don't want to go out and get it :) This week I have walked 15 miles so far and my goal is 30. I'm trying to make up a little bit for Spring Break week when I only walked about 16 miles. Also, if I want to see 30 pounds by 6/6, so that I can have a chance at seeing 40 pounds by 7/6, I need to pick up the pace.

One thing that I learned during the break week, is that I really need to get up earlier and get some exercise in, in the morning. Otherwise, I'm in big trouble when school lets out for the summer. I am going to try and work my way up to that. On Friday, I am going to try and get up and walk before my husband leaves for work. This will be an adjustment!

Hopefully, by next week, that pound that's keeping me away from 20 pounds, will be gone. Hopefully plus some :)
