I'm doing okay

I know my blog has been quiet, and normally that means something bad but in my case I am happy to report that's not the case.  I have just been so super busy, as usual.  My life never seems to slow down.

I am still losing weight, slowly but surely. My weight loss has stalled.  I haven't gain anything back and the last time I weighed I had lost 4 pounds.  So right now I am sitting at 30 pounds lost since February.  That doesn't seem like a lot to me and I wish it was more but that is what I can do right now I  can complain.  The scale is moving in the right direction.

I have been juggling around what works for me.  I think I may have found a routine I can live with. Most mornings I get up every weekday morning by 4:30 to workout. I do a 20 minutes on the treadmill, walk/run a little over a mile and then I do 15-20 minutes with my kettle bell.  I have to say I really like my kettle bell.  I can tell a huge difference in my arms.  I can feel my muscles!  Last week the kids and I went to the Arboretum to walk instead of getting on the treadmill.   It's beautiful out there, we usually go before I get ready for work and before I drop them off at summer camp.  So we are talking 6:45 am so it is still nice and cool.  We walked everyday last week. I also did my kettle bell every morning.  I usually get another walk in after dinner most of the time on the treadmill.  This week I have had to resort back to my treadmill so far.  Rain yesterday morning, and today my son couldn't walk that far, he hit his foot on the bottom of the pool when he jumped in so he is sore.

I didn't weigh in last week so I will weigh in on Sunday.  Pretty pathetic but I have my kids hide my scale so I don't obsess and get on it everyday.  I'm crazy like that.

My eating has been good.  I finally count calories. It's easier than I realized.  At first I typed up a whole big list but now I know what I am eating, since we eat a lot of the same things.  I just get my calculator on my phone and when I make my lunch in the morning I add up my breakfast and everything else I am taking with me to work, then add in my dinner.  When I run low on calories I just stop eating or pick something lower in calories.  I bought a nice kitchen scale so I weigh everything out and use my measuring cups and spoons.  I think I have it figured out for the moment. 

My husband and I are taking the kids on a surprise trip to Disney World in about two and half weeks.  I am so excited.  I plan on utilizing the gym and taking my kettle bell with me.  Also know I will get a ton a walking in at the theme parks my only issue is the eating.  I plan on making the best choices I can.

 I read blogs everyday, I just find it hard to sit down and type something out.  Hope everyone else is going great!

  1. In order to keep great shape you have to develop healthy eating habits. I’ve read somewhere that even if you attend gym every day but keep eating junk food – you are wasting your time.
