Now I feel better. I just did 2 miles on the dreadmill and at a decent pace. I was doing a 20 minute mile but decided to push myself tonight. I did two miles 36 minutes. I'll take it! At my peak I was pushing to do a 16 min mile. I'll get back there. I do better when I can walk outside. From the top of our driveway to the "main" road at the end of the neighborhood is 4 tenths of a mile. From the driveway to the end of our street is 2 tenths. I can do driveway to main road twice and then to the end of our street and back home for 2 miles. I'll have to start doing that when it warms up some. At least in the mid 50s. I used to love walking at night (in sketchy neighborhoods) and could do 3 miles easily. Unfortunately our 'hood doesn't have street lights and I'm not about to walk at night here anymore. I wish we had access to the high school track but they lock the gates at night. Some schools you can get to the track, but not this one I don't plan on driving 20 minutes just to walk on a lighted track at night LOL. I'll just have to suffer and walk during daylight hours.

Hi all I had another good day....right on track. I wish the scale would move faster, but ....don't we all So I was a bit discouraged this morning because I don't feel like I'm making progress, so I decided to check on my measurements and body fat. I was happy to see I've lost inches and fat over the past few weeks...and a bit of muscle too according to the scale...which kind of sucks since I'm doing heavy weights trying to maintain muscle. I'm hoping that if I keep that up and maybe even add in another weight session, that I can maintain my muscle as I drop fat. That is the goal!!

Weekly Goals:
64 oz. minimum water daily: M - 96 oz, T - 88 oz, W - 72 oz, T - 80 oz., F - 88 oz.
max. 1500 calories per day: M - 1430 cals, T - 1869,W - 1045 cals, T - 1489 cals., F - 1350 cals
full body workout x3:W - y, F - y
core workout x3: M - y, Th - y
cardio workout x5: M - 40 min. bike, T - 40 min. spin, W - 30 min. elliptical, T - 40 min. bike, F - 40 min. bike
take vitamins daily: M - y, T - y, W - y, T - y, F - y

I am feeling a bit better today. It's cold but at least the sun is shining and the sky is blue. That makes a big difference in how I feel. I went out for a coffee with my neighbour and we had a good chat. My calories were good yesterday and today so let's see what happens on Monday. Have a good week end all.
