To all my faithful followers ( all 5 of you, ha ha),
Sorry it's been so long for an update. I find that I do so much better at being active and involved in life if I stay away from this wonderful, but time consuming computer! My son and I took a road trip (11hrs one way) over Mother's Day to visit my mom since my hubby had to work. We had tons of fun, did a lot of shopping/mall walking, walks by the beach, and hung out in the backyard. I even indulged a bit on Mother's Day at Outback and it was DELICIOUS!! I still made smart choices, but avoided the bloomin' onion (only took two bites) but thoroughly loved every bite of my steak. Overall, between MANY McDonald's salads and trying to take walks at rest stops, I stayed even steven, which I was really proud of.
Fast forward to the present...I'm down a total of 22 pounds. HOORAY! I'm feeling good, still have the drive to do better and have an amazing support group including two great friends who are on the same journey as me. I have a much farther road than they do but as a team, we're all doing great things.
I'm hoping that by the end of June to be down another 10-15 pounds and that my steps will be closer to 10000 daily. While most people are enjoying summer-like weather, here in the Pacific Northwest we're dealing with unusually COLD temps, major rain downpours combined with hail and wind. Fun times, huh. Needless to say, my step count has been dwindling since I started my weight loss journey.
Have a great next week everyone.
