Hello all! Sorry for not posting a blog yesterday. To be honest I took a break from dieting and exercise to visit my family at church in Hartselle last night. My niece and nephews are headed to Lads 2 Leaders convention in Atlanta this weekend. It was a nice day spent with them for sure. 🙂 I am very glad my grandmother was able to come too. She sure loves those sweet great grand babies and enjoys every second she is able to spend with them. Hope your Sunday was awesome as well.
Saturday I mentioned walking 3.5 miles. It was a really good solid walk. I felt sweaty and tired by the time it was over. I skipped all forms of exercise yesterday but I plan to walk or go to Big Spring Park tonight to run stairs. It is supposed to rain some this week so I want to make sure I can enjoy the outdoors as much as possible.
I am down 21 pounds!!! I admit, the weight loss has become quiet difficult. I believe part of it has to do with exercise–where I am losing inches rather than weight. The other part may have to do with my calories. I have an appointment tomorrow with my dietician. I hope she can help me move past some issues I am having like food burnout, hunger and how to adjust my calories to fit my exercise routine. I am certain I am not eating enough food to sustain me which is causing my excessive hunger. I eat 3 square meals with snacks but I don’t let my calorie count climb above 1500. That is likely why I am waking up in the middle of the night with a hungry stomach. So hopefully tomorrow she can give me some good advice.
So if you saw my “No Excuses” report this morning you know about my latest blood work panel. If you missed it, I won’t spoil it for you 🙂 Be sure to tune in during WAFF-48 News Now at 4 pm to find out if nearly 8 weeks of dieting and losing 21 pounds has helped lower my blood sugar and cholesterol.
This blog is going to be short because I am running behind at work today. I will have much more for you tomorrow.
Have a great Monday!
