January Habit

January 26th, 2007 at 02:30 am

Well, my January habit was to walk more...and I have not succeded in doing that....but I have been watching what I eat and following a 40-30-30 eating plan very closely...and I am now 27 pounds lighter than I was at the beginning of December! Of course, some of the weight loss came from stress...but now I am just eating healthy, doing lots of stair climbing, drinking lots of water, and moving around alot more...I will continue to incorporate more walking into the habit for February.

Again, my overall goal is to get off the blood pressure meds...and I feel I am well on my way!

I tried on that new top for DD1 this morning and her jaw dropped and said it really looked good on me!! Big Grin which, of course, made my day! I am going to wear it for real on February 3rd, which is the 18th anniversary of meeting H and we are going to dinner that night to celebrate.

I emailed my old boss again and let him know dates I am available to meet for lunch and am waiting to hear back from him....I am eager to hear what options are out there!

Money continues to be short right now. I opted to give DD1 my last paycheck for helping in the office...and we have 3 January birthdays...some medical bills, the new well pump, and we now need tires on the travel trailer....and I have just spent lately...I guess that is my aftershock therapy...not a healthy one---but I am now trying to figure out how to get the finances back on track. Perhaps a better paying job is a good option.

I guess we shall see!

    27 lbs lost in barely a month?? That's fantastic! But it almost sounds like too much lost, too soon, no? I heard the rule of thumb for safely losing weight is no more than 2 lbs. a week.

    Thanks all...I have to say, I am feeling better in the new me!

    Fern- It is actually almost 2 months...but it is still quite alot lost for that period, I agree. I lost alot of it during the yuck of last month...but this month I am really just staying focused and am losing 2-3 per week.

    I'm sure your walking will pick up once the weather gets warmer! Until then, you are kicking booty anyway!
