On the right track

Standard

Just checking in! Just to let you know that I am on the right track with my weight loss journey and exercise routine.
What seems to be working for me, is that I’m not calling this a diet. diets never worked for me. I’m not really good with somebody telling me I can’t have something. When somebody tells me this is off-limits, that’s exactly what I crave! So diets are a no-no.
So for the record, I’m just watching what I eat.
Now for the good news. I have logged 16 miles on my treadmill since Saturday. That translates into five hours of scrapbooking over the Memorial Day long weekend I have earned.
Yayyyyyyyy me!!!!
And the very best part of this whole idea, is that I have made new friends and have motivated kindred spirits in craftiness to get on board with me!
See? All we needed was the right motivation! Who wouldn’t get on the treadmill for new criicut cartridge?
Even for those of you lucky people who don’t need to lose weight, walking is good for you! And it is a wonderful time to get your creative juices flowing and think about your next project! So let’s get moving girls!!!
Here is my second motivating factor. I hope to go to Key West or Marco Island in September. Two of myfavorite places to vacation on the beach. So I am getting ready to be able to wear a nice bathing suit this year!

  2. Hey Kim I went to the doc last week. I am down 11 pounds! I have been walking and drinking protein drinks for breakfast everyday and I got swimming twice a week. Looks like it’s working. How is it coming along for you?
