I need to set a new goal for weight loss. Something achievable, something to strive for. My last one would have been achievable, but I did not do so good. Perhaps I'm not so good at the long goals. So my goal is this: lose 4 pounds. That is it. 4 pounds. It may seem like an easy goal, but these four pounds have come and gone many times, and I want them to stay off this time. So I suppose my real goal is to lose 4 pounds and keep them off!!
Made an appt to see my doctor bright and early on Wednesday morning. Last few times I've checked my BP has been high. If it weren't for the fact that I'm on BP meds to take care of that I would not worry, but 153/100 is not good.
Did good waking up with my alarm. I have two alarms set 5 minutes apart. So even though I fell back asleep before #2 went off, I made myself roll out of bed with that second alarm and get myself some coffee and grab my workout clothes. I always have the option of turning off both alarms and going back to sleep, but I'm hoping to only do that once a week.
Starting to really feel it in my legs! I feel out of balance! Going to add an upper body work out in today. And not forget to do my burpees like I have for the last two days!! But I did set an alarm for 0930 and go out and walk for 10 minutes when it went off. I did great, just dropped what I was doing and headed out the door. The kids played while me and the dog walked. That walk was almost too much on my legs, they are so achy and tired! I'll do some extra stretching after I walk today. I didn't do my 2nd walk yesterday because my legs were so achy. Probably won't do it today either.
Did great on my food planning yesterday, not so great on my follow through. I need to plan a light yet satisfying lunch and an easy dinner. I need protein. I had freshly ground nut butter with lunch yesterday, but I had it with jelly, which is not good. Next time I'll have it on whole wheat toast.
And oh my goodness, my daughter (Angel, the youngest) was on the step ladder to get the cereal, turned to talk to me and fell, face-planting into the side of the doorway!! Poor thing! She really smacked her head hard. New rule, no socks on the step ladder! She's a little shaken, but doing much better now.
Off to shower and get ready for school! Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!!
