20 mins cutting the grass today. Going to be another hot week so I'm glad I'm almost finished!! A small section left in the back.
Up to 3 glasses of water already! Hopefully I will be down some weight tomorrow!! Fingers crossed.
Your dignity? ... and you have ~that~ as an avatar?
I picked the title because that was what I was thinking before I noticed a new thread had not been started.
It took me months to come to grips with the idea of losing weight, nearly a year to lose it, now another year in remissi.., I mean maintenance.

The next few days are going to be very hot and we have no air conditioning. I have my work outs planed for the treadmill in the basement where it is cooler. I don't eat as much when it's hot but will be drinking lots of water. So far in July I feel as if I am just wasting time and I need to get down to business. I need a quick start to get back into the game.

Sorry I haven't checked in for a couple of days. Been crazy here.
Friday I walked 3 miles (walk away the pounds with 2lb weights)
Yesterday I got brave and did the walk away the pounds 4 mile dvd. I finished but I made a huge mistake and didn't have any protein after my walk. I was exhausted and sore all day.
Today I walked the 3 mile walk again with the 2 lb hand weights but, I added my weighted vest with 3 additional pounds of weight. I'm drinking my protein shake now.
I don't know if any of you do shakes but, I do. I love my shakes. Being a type II diabetic, finding a protein shake that doesn't have too many carbs can be tough. I FOUND ONE. It's called About Time. They have several flavors, they taste great and they are very moderately priced. I get mine at GNC but you can order them online too. They have a very supportive customer service staff and lots and lots of recipes on the site.
I need to find someone to help me take my measurements. My husband won't help and I know I can't get accurate measurements by myself. boo
