Then life happened, and the weigh ins and goal settings stopped. My mother in law was placed on hospice in Colorado, clear across the United States. My husband and his siblings needed to get to her quickly to say goodbye, and to mend broken fences. My husband drove 8 (ish) hours to meet up with his siblings. He spent the day with his dad and after they were finished at work, they took turns driving 17 hours to Colorado. They made it, had a wonderful reunion, spent 3 days with her, and then they drove back. She has since passed away.
Son had lots of problems finding an apartment and ended up driving 120 miles a day for a PART TIME job, that he had to keep so that he would have it once college started this fall. So much for saving money for college books!!!
And the list could go on, but this is NOT a post to hash out the whys. This is a post say, Im doing weekly weigh ins again and I need goals!!!
The traditional scale photo.
11-01-13 180.2 8 lbs
Four pounds in 4 months. Time to get serious again, and stop 'maintaining'!!
My beautiful friend Julie has challenged me to eat a large helping of veggies every day. I DO NOT like vegetables. So one huge serving is a start. A sad start, but a start!!!
I took Romaine lettuce, and added some peppers, radishes, carrots, and one teaspoon of dressing. The peppers are new for me, and they were, um, ok. Ill have one of these each day for the next week.
Im also joining Shrinking Jeans in their Planking Challenge for November. Today was 20 seconds, so I did several of the poses.
