Well I am back to kicking butt this April! I have figured it's great to be 100 pounds down but it would be even better if I could lose a little more before my 1 year mark and be able to say I exceeded my own expectations. Kick-Butt April will turn into Kick-Butt May and so on. I am ready to get cracking and finish this thing out for GOOD! 68 MORE POUNDS TO GO but I am just going to focus on the now and work 1 pound at a time.
Yesterday I worked out like I said I was going to and today I still have yet to work out but I plan on it! I can't wait until this weather warms up! We STILL have been getting snow! Next week I hear it is supposed to be in the 60's so they better not be lying because I cannot wait to start going for walks again!!! I miss swimming, I miss the smell of fresh cut grass, I miss it all!
I'm starting to get used to my recumbent bike/elliptical and have been in need of something different. I haven't done a basement routine in a long time. I have held off on the weights but now that I'm 100 pounds down I think I can get back on that because I could really use the extra muscle. I just didn't want to gain in muscle and have it mess up what I had going for me last week.
I had my lemon water first thing this morning and then made myself a cup of green tea and I ended up missing breakfast and had a brunch because I ended up waking up late. I am now on my 4th cup of green tea and am not sure what I will have for dinner. We went grocery shopping yesterday so I got a few things but not much. I find it easier to stay on track if I limit myself on what I buy. This Thursday I plan to cheat. My friend and I have started to get together ever Thursday for lunch. She comes over here and I make the food. I usually make something that can stick to your ribs. The last time we got together is when I had made those chicken enchiladas. This week I will be making a sirloin tip roast with gravy, mashed potatoes, carrots and corn. We didn't get together last Thursday because I canceled due to me not wanting to cheat that week.
