WEIGH IN 5-15-17


Just a quick post this morning to shout from the roof tops that I got back down to my 176 in  just one week. I really didn't expect this. I had a couple of days in a row where I craved carbonation and and drank cokes. I did keep my water going in got in tons of steps. A couple of days I clocked over 13,000 steps.

Not sure what this week holds. I'll keep doing what I'm doing. Bob is still home. He's been home long enough to file for unemployment. Heavy rains have swollen the rivers to the point where boats just are not moving. And I see now on the weather channel MO and Chicago are both looking at more rain for the week. 

I have a ton of work to get done this week. Only three weeks left before my granddaughters arrive. Once they're here, my time is 90% about them. Lots of activity so steps while they're here should be easy peasy. LOL

What's on your week? Please share. 
Enjoy the Journey!

WEIGH IN - 5/8/17


Based on I estimated last week's weight because I wasn't home, the three-pound gain could be over a 2-week period. However, I know my appetite has been veracious the past couple of weeks. After seeing the gain in actual numbers I'm trying to remember when hunger kicks in, to eat small - not a full meal.

I'm also back to tracking my water. I'd gotten away from that since getting new cold cups - Yeti knock-offs from Ozark Trail outdoors. 

I have two cups and didn't know the ounces on either of them. This morning, I finally measured the volume. The big one holds 32 oz. I use this one for around the house as I can pick it up near the base without issue. I'd been using the cup in the truck but I have small hands so I was unable to palm the top of the cup and lift it from the cup holder. And the top comes off really easy.

So I went in search of a smaller one for the truck. I can palm the 16 oz tumbler much easier and the lid has one heck of a suction!

I also use a 16 oz bottle similar to the one below for outside work. I can stay hydrated without providing bugs with a drink. 


I've been doing a lot of work in the yard and with the nicer weather, taking full advantage of hanging clothes outside. Last week I racked up 29.130 steps in only THREE days! One day was 13,330 steps. Bob wanted to know why I didn't take the remaining three steps. He's so cute! hehe

I'm trying to be back to work full time, which means making use of my dayplanner. I have so much I want/ need to get done before my granddaughters arrive for the summer. Unfortunately, a lot of it requires sitting at the computer or standing at the crafting table. I'll have to really focus on getting the steps in.

What's on your list for this week? Whatever you are doing,
Enjoy the Journey!

Weigh In

I apologize for lack of scales image this week. I'm typing this up on Sunday night at the hotel. I didn't bring any flashdrives with me as I did not intend to be working. Thought we would be home today. Unfortunately, heavy thunderstorms and 7+" of rain has closed our road. We hope to get home tomorrow.

Since I'm not sure what will be waiting for us when we get home, I wanted to get a quick post up.

Here's what I'm going with:


Since we have been in Springfield since Friday afternoon I'm pretty confident there isn't a weight loss. However, I've eaten mostly protein. Though I did have a Max Roast Beef with lettuce and tomato (no fries) at Arby's yesterday. I'd not been able to eat one since July 2016. Quite a treat!  Today has been all about protein... almost no carbs. Though since we ate 'dinner' around 3 p.m. I'm thinking there is a PB & J in my future before bedtime.

Today we will be home and hopefully not have a big mess to clean up. My poor doggies have probably been swimming in their pens LOL though I don't think we got the amount of rain that West Plains (south of us about 45 miles but in the bordering country) received. They got so much rain, they had to shut off power to the entire town because one of the sub-stations was in danger of flooding. Just scary. 

I would rather have been home for this weather, but if I had to be anywhere else, here at the Comfort Suites on Glenstone is my second home. They treat me like family and you might remember, took good care of me when I had my teeth pulled. So Bob and I've kicked back, relaxed, watched tv, played cards and spent time in the pool and hot tub. Probably our last vacation for a little while. 

Whatever your week brings...
Enjoy the Journey!
