Like a Turtle

Slow and steady wins the race...that's what the turtle said anyways. This weeks weigh-in was a loss, but I was really hoping for a 2lb loss this week instead ended up with a 0.8 loss. Hey, don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled with any loss.

I up'd my exercise this week, taking 1 mile walks 3 times. Oh wait did I lead you to believe I increased my exercise routine? Sorry, I began an exercise routine. I hate exercise, but I know it's got to be done to really make this a success. I've tried every exercise out there and can't find anything that I will stick with. I tried yoga, belly-dancing (that was just sad), eliptical machine, I joined a gym for women with a sauna and free tanning. I had to sign a 1 yr contract and they took 56.00/mo out of my bank account. I think I actually went to the gym for about 1 month maybe 2, but that is probably stretching it. The really really sad thing, the gym is in the same complex as my office. I just had to walk down there after work and I couldn't make myself do it. My year contract ended March 16th, they tried to get me to resign - did they think I was that stupid. I think I mentioned something about bike riding in an earlier post. That wouldn't work either. Walking is easy, I just have to make myself get off my butt and go. So that's my plan for right now. Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday I'll walk at least 1 mile, then I'll try to increase that to 1.5 next week.

My son's birthday is on Easter this year, he will be 20 years old. I can't believe I've got a kid that old. My goal weight is to lose 2lbs by Easter. 1 1/2 weeks I should be able to reach that goal.

Wow, this year is the year for holiday birthdays in our family. Like I said, David's birthday is on Easter. Chelsea (my daughter) will turn 18 on July 3rd. I always tease her, if she'd actually been born on the 4th of July her name would have been Liberty Bell Harmon. My mom's maiden name is Bell. I thought it was cute, she would have killed me. My mom's birthday is Mothers Day and my niece Alyssa is turning 19 at Thanksgiving. The kids dad's birthday is 3 days before Christmas. Interesting isn't it?

My promise to myself this week - exercise, moving a tad faster than the slow and steady turtle.
