Monday Milestones

runner

This was a great week for my eating plan, but a less than stellar week for exercise.  I did manage to get in two good workouts before I pulled a muscle in my neck/back area.  That put me out for a few days, but the good news is that I feel much better now and can barely feel the strained muscle.  This experience reinforced the fact that I really need to stretch out well before my workouts. 

I lost three pounds this week, which puts me at twenty pounds in six weeks. 

I usually prefer to exercise in the mornings, but my schedule has been a lot busier lately.  This week, I’m teaching music lessons at the local high school for two mornings.  For two other days I am babysitting.  I’m also in a production of The Passion during Easter weekend…we’re having lots of extra rehearsals now.  When you factor all that in with routine housework, time spent with Grace, play dates, cooking, shopping, various appointments, and church activities, I must stay very organized to get everything done, including workouts.

My milestone goal this week is to exercise five times and continue to do well on my eating plan.

Wow I am very impressed with your progress. I don't have any young ones around, and still can't get exercise in every day. Ok you have motivated me to try harder. Congrats on the weight loss. Keep it up. I did great for a month or so then lots of company and I slipped, but now back on track and will learn to incorporate new eating habits under all circumstances. It has to be a whole new lifestyle.
