This past weekend my husband, Ben (my dog baby) & I went on our first camping trip. It was nice & relaxing even with the rain. We got to the camp site on Friday in the rain, not a great way to start out. We got wet & our tent got wet. Saturday was a beautiful day we went hiking & relaxed then came more rain for Saturday night. We left bright & early Sunday morning (we were sick of the rain). I did manage to stay on program & get in a bit of exercise while camping which is huge. I did not bring any junk food because what you don't have you can't eat.

I only have 3 more sessions with the personal trainer then I will be on my own. I have decided not to sign up again, it is just so expensive & I have not been seeing the results I have expected. I saw more results when I was doing more cardio. I can always change my mind & re sign up at a later time. I will have to come up with a new routine by next week. I only have a little over a month before my trip so I have to get with the program. I did get in 30 minutes on the treadmill last night. I have a goal to do at least 20 minutes of exercise 6 days a week.

60 Day challenge pictures

I finally have the pictures for the challenge. I wore snug fitting clothes so you can get a true picture of all my lumps & bumps. In 60 days the lumps & bumps will be smaller. I had another good day today, I got up at 4:30 & did the treadmill for 50 minutes & my eating was right on target. I even got up the nerve to go to weigh in tonight. I did not gain as much as I thought but I did gain 1.6. No more gaining in the future.
Warning avoid looking at the pictures if you have a weak stomach.

Day 2 of challange

I am on day 2 of the 60 day challenge. I did good yesterday with my eating but I did not manage to fit in any exercise. I am also on track today and I did get in an hour of exercise. I am off to bed in about 30 minutes so I can get up early and do the treadmill before work. I will take and post the picture tomorrow. I need my husband to take the picture & he is out for the evening.

My eating/drinking this weekend was way off as I thought it would be but I did have a great time. I managed to get up on Friday morning and go for a run. It was really nice, I ran for 40 minutes.
Here a a few pictures from Lake George.

Did someone say challenge?

I love a challenge and have decided to join the Missouri 60 challenge . Tony AKA the Anti Jared is giving a challenge for 60 days to see how much you can change. I am starting on Monday and will commit to the full 60 days. No excuses. If I have to go out to dinner or If I am going to a picnic or party I will choose wisely. I am in if for the full 60 days. I will post a Picture on Monday & then one in 60 days to see how far I can get.

Sorry I have been MIA for the past week. I have been so busy at work I have not had anytime to post. We now have a new home computer so I will be better at posting and get some pictures up in the future. I went to Weigh in on Saturday and lost 2.6 pounds, the bad thing is I have been off program since Saturday. We are going away this weekend to Lake George with a bunch of friends and I am sure I will be drinking quit a few beers which will lead to bad food choices. I did get my but to the gym yesterday (kicking & screaming) and I did manage to get up at 4:30 this morning for 55 min on the treadmill. (40 of which I jogged). My plan is to also get up tomorrow morning to exercise. I hear there is a park near the hotel we are staying at so I plan on jogging in the park also. I will be back on track & back to posting more often starting on Monday.

Bad few days

I have not had the best few days. I sabotaged myself. I could not resist the cookies on Monday and it went down hill from there. I did turn it around this morning. I got up at 4:30 & did 50 minutes on the treadmill. I am trying to eat lite today to try to offset some of the crap I ate the last 2 days. I am not going to Weight Watchers tonight I am going to go on Saturday instead. I think after next week I will start going on Saturdays. It is more convenient for me. ( Can't go next Saturday because we are going away for the weekend to Lake George). I do feel a lot better today. I don't know why I get in these funks. I will do so well for a while then bam it hits me like a tone of bricks.

Feeling good!

I have been following the program for a week & a half now and I feel good. No wait I feel great! My husband thought it would be nice to go out to dinner last night but I said no I am making dinner. My made dinner was a much better choice then I would have made had we gone out. Today was so busy I still have 8.5 of my daily points left. I am not one to have so many point left after dinner, not sure what I will do with them. I was so busy today I just did not get hungry. I went to the gym for the 2 hour training class. ( I burnt 1002 calories). Then when I came home had some steel cut oats. I then decided to be a nice wife and mow the lawn. (looks good if I may say so). I then decided to have some Britta time, so I sat in the sun and finally finished my book. ( I got a lot redder then I thought I would). After resting up I helped my husband finish staining the deck. Then off to eat dinner, I made a roll up with a whole wheat tortilla, chicken breast which I heated up in hot sauce, Some blue cheese crumbles, lettuce & tomato, It was yummy. I also had some broccoli & chips & salsa with it. I did get some snacks in today of watermelon and an apple. Tomorrow I will do the treadmill & I hope to get in a game of tennis. (not good at tennis at all but I am trying to learn). Hope you all have a great weekend.

Thanks for all your support

First I would like to send out a thank you to Mae Flowers at A Journey to Thin for mentioning me in her blog. Second I want to thank you all for your support. I love to read all your blogs. I get so much inspiration from you not only by reading what you have to say but also by the wonderful comments you leave me. Thank you, you are all so supportive and I truly appreciate it.

I had another successful day yesterday. I even tried to get in more filling foods (fruits, vegetables, high fiber foods) and I think it helped. Usually I have a snack around four o'clock and yesterday I was not even hungry for my snack. Today after work I will go to my exercise class for a much needed butt whipping. Not sure how I will do at weight in tomorrow night but I am hoping for a loss of at least a pound.

What are you proud of today?

I am always writing about the things I have done that I regret, such as not exercising or going off on a binge. Today I want to hear what you are proud of. I am proud that I got up at 4:30 to do the treadmill. I am also proud that I have stuck to my eating plan today. Another thing I am proud of is that I went through the weekend without using all my extra & activity points. ( I did use all the extra but not all the activity). Now let me hear what you are proud of.
