At the first of every month, I like to post my beginning weight for the month in my Weight Loss Tally table on the left side of my blog. I am starting July out at 209.8. I am very happy about this. When I first started losing weight, I had 110 pounds to lose. The remaining weight to lose is in the 80s, just barely, but in the 80s nonetheless (I like looking at that 89 on my little ticker up there at the top). However, as CJ says in a recent post, I have gotten A Little Too Comfortable.
On the one hand, it is a very good thing that this new way of life is no longer strange and uncomfortable. It has become easy and routine. Buuuut, on the other hand, I have become stagnant. A .2 pound loss over the last couple months each is unacceptable.
I have lots of plans: get back to reading, commenting and posting on the blogs, alternate Chair Aerobics video with yoga each morning, continue walking on my breaks, take advantage of the fitness room in the apartments where I live, ride the stationary bike across the country along Hwy 50, become a lot more organized with my meal planning and preparation. I plan on cooking up a few chicken breasts on the weekends, baking a few potatoes, cooking a turkey breast for sandwiches (instead of using salty, processed lunch meat). But beyond that, I haven't gotten too much else planned. I have some nifty bento-type lunchboxes that will help...just fill the little spaces with good stuff. But what? That is for another post.
Have a great weekend everyone!
