Progress check Jan 2011 week 2 completed

Monday, January 17, 2011

Sometimes I think my progress is as dismal as the weather outside. This was one of those weeks. The scale refused to budge. Well while it didn't go down, it didn't go up either and that is a good thing. Might all have to do with lots of work out in the cold and getting too cold doing it. Had a company car without a good heater that I spent 3 hours a day in plus doing inspections on aircraft out in the elements left me thoroughly chilled to the bone and seeking good hot meals. I didn't eat badly, just more calories than I should have. My exercise goal ( to do something every day) had better success. I did exercise 16 out of 17 days with good intentions for that missing day. Again the cold did me in, I got home totally chilled and after eating a warm meal I promptly feel asleep in the living room chair. My son says he tried to wake me several times but I was out of it. (sigh).
For all my complaining about the weather and the 4 feet of snow hampering everything I do I did manage to record 5 things each day that went well/made me happy although a great deal of them were cancellations due to weather :) Meal planning has also gone better than expected, I am getting a meal plan put together each night for the next day and generally sticking to it. I will have to venture out for groceries soon though as the cupboards are getting bare and with more snow and blizzard conditions in the forcast I don't want to run too low especially on low sugar/low carb items. I am also starting to put the water right into the meal plan to help me remember to drink it.

All in all the week has brought me closer to the ultimate goal although the progress seems barely visible. I look forward to June when hopefully this cursed white stuff will be gone and life will go back to normal for two or three months before it all starts again.

    This time of year is always so hard. The fact that the scale did not go up is an accomplishment to celebrate. Spring will be here....soon I hope!

    Sometimes, the scale betrays us, so don't lose heart. Although, you are disappointed with the scale numbers, you are doing GREAT! You are getting out there and exercising your heart and eating right. That spells success in my book. Just keep doing what you are doing and the weight WILL come off.

    Goodness you have a lot of snow where you are and it sounds absolutely frigid. How cold is it where you are in farenheit degrees? I seem to really feel the cold and always wished I had a battery operated heated vest ($79) or socks ($30) -- the socks are more affordable on my semi-retirement budget....I am going to get myself a pair for sure.

    Keep on, keepin on....you are doing fantastic. REALLY. emoticon

    I see from your new background that you are thinking spring...

    I think you are doing great with your new goals.

    Sounds like we've been having similar weather.
