I’ve updated my weight tracker page. This week I lost 1.6 lbs. I’m happy with that considering I’m still slowly increasing my activity level. And I’m not being as faithful about tracking my points as I should be. The eTools really do help, but when I’m running around doing stuff, or sick like I’ve been this week, it’s hard to be as focused. Not making excuses or complaining. Just stating how it is with me. This is a lifestyle change that I’m working on and it will take some time.

I am thinking about healthier choices and being more mindful of what I choose to eat. Today has been a fairly good day. I had some veggie soup from a can for lunch – only 50 calories a serving and 0 points. Added some Triscuits with cheese and fruit and it was a satisfying meal.

Exercise has not happened this week because my energy level has been so low. Perhaps it would help me get better faster. I don’t know. I’ll get back on track next week. Maybe I’ll even throw my workout clothes in the Xterra and take advantage of the hotel facilities this weekend. Knitting isn’t exactly a calorie burner. Although I wonder if I could knit while pedaling away on the recumbant bike?

I just keep telling myself slow and steady wins the race…or weight loss.

  • I love little things that help me stay organized and remember things I need. This door hanger/organizer is the perfect place to stick keys, mail, grocery lists, and anything else you want to remember on the way out the door. It's a simple project also.
