I've spent another month in zig-zag mode weight wise - still struggling with that same two pounds, but in the last few days before weigh-in, managed to actually fall below the 170 mark!
last month's post, I'm down a whopping one pound. Not much progress for an entire month, but I'll have to take what I can get.
My routine with exercise has improved as well. I've managed up to twenty minutes each on both the treadmill and the stationary bike. Although that has kind of fallen by the wayside over the last two weeks as I've been battling yet another head cold. I will be so happy when Spring well and truly settles in and all this nonsense comes to an end! And my ankle continues to bother me off and on. It really is true that the older you get, the longer it takes to heal.
The most notable change from last month is the abdomen measurement - down a full two inches! And I think I finally discovered the trick on that one. I need to keep my sodium intake well below the daily allowance. Which can be difficult when all of the processed and fast foods that make my life easier are so high in sodium! But now that I know, I am really trying to keep that on the "watch" list as well.
One little glitch in my big plans. Remember how I told you last month that I wanted to weigh less than my hubby by my birthday? Well, he went and got himself all stressed out with changes happening at work (that may or may not signal the end of his employment) and has lost five pounds over the last few weeks. So not fair! I gain weight when I am stressed. My goal weight remains at 164 by my birthday, but given the very very very ridiculously maddeningly horrifyingly slow pace at which I am losing, I am not sure that is realistic anymore. Won't stop me from trying though. Just shy of eight weeks to go....
