Weekly Check-in: November 10, 2008

It's Monday and time to check in again.

No need for the usual statistics. I'm getting back on track.

I didn't gain any weight again. Hooray! What this really means is that after losing some weight and gaining it back, I'm holding steady.

And that I'm at the same weight I was in January so things are not as bad as they sometimes seem.

I got good news about my B-12 level over the weekend. It has skyrocketed since I began taking mega supplements. (I'll have to keep taking them though since the body doesn't really store this stuff long-term.)

My iron levels are up. Again, thanks to mega supplements.

Doctor was not crazy about my weight being up too but I convinced her I can at least hold steady, if not lose a few lbs, between now and the end of the year.

Hey, I can do this!

We entertained a guest this weekend, which meant eating out. It also meant a ridiculously hectic schedule, which included having dinner after 9:30 pm two nights in a row.

I still didn't gain weight.

And...

I exercised this morning. I mean really exercised.

I'm changing my regimen. I'm going to try strength/resistance training for 30-40 min 3x per week, and cardio for 30-45 min twice a week.

Now if I can just get the evening snack attacks under control...

How'd you do?

Peace & Blessings,
Patricia

It's amazing how we're on the same wavelength. I dragged out my free weights this weekend! I'm working with them while I watch the beginning of The View. The beginning is the only part I really like anyway.

My knee is so much better that I've started back walking on my treadmill desk.

Something has to happen if we keep it up and push ourselves a little bit harder...

I don't get to see The View these days but when I watched it, I'd stopped watching more than the opening roundtable a long time ago.

It's a little scary how we both think! :)

Agree that we've got to keep pushing and something good will happen for us!
