I’m definitely counting this one as a victory, because I only gained 1/2 pound over the past two weeks of travel and moving. YES!!!!!!!!!!! Good news on my new house: It’s a one hour round trip to the top of Mt. Tabor park and back. I discovered this very early this morning, wanting to get the black dog (and myself) some exercise before the heat. Lucy wasn’t super pumped about the 100 stairs, so I might start tying her up at the bottom while I power up them. Sweaty! After that Amanda and I went swimming for 40 minutes (I definitely tapered off for the last ten) at the OHSU pool. So nice to do something different!
So I actually stayed for the Weight Watchers meeting today (I haven’t in a long time), and it was so so great. We talked about fun ways to make pizza healthy and a bazillion creative things to do with veggies (sauerkraut in chocolate cake? WHAT?!). Then we had to write down a goal to work towards by September 21st. My goal: To weigh in at 175. That requires a loss of eight pounds. Kelly, you can do this.
Then I made a list of all things healthy in my life:
Gym (classes), Bridge Pedal, Farmers Markets, the Farm, Family Dinners, Hiking in the Gorge, Mt. Tabor walks, Lucy, swimming with Amanda, Weight Watchers, amazing role models.
It felt really good to write these things down. Try it. Pick a goal and then figure out the resources you have to reach it. Let me know how it goes 🙂
And btw, no pics for a few days unless I get my hands on a cord. I’m using a loaner while mine is being overhauled (THANK YOU, DANA!!)
