The good news is that when I weighed for the start of the Weight Loss Contest at work, I found I was actually a couple of pounds less then this time last year. Considering the year I had, I am really ok with that. I suppose there is something to be said for finding and losing the same few pounds. LOL Now I aim to actually lose it and not find it again! I have really done pretty well this week as far as eating goes. I do realize that it is only the first week but I am encouraged. It helps that I find myself not even feeling hungry. OK maybe that is going to be a problem but for now I am being positive and just going with it. I am also eating much slower, chewing longer and taking smaller bites. I also am cutting my portions. I should start weighing things again and will more than likely do that soon. I am also having to take my blood pressure every morning since it has been on the high side for several months now. Oh life you bring me such challenges. The other thing I really need to concentrate on is drinking water. I think that is playing a big part in that I am not drinking enough. Those are the things that I am working on this month. On Monday, I even moved my gym bag out of the closet. Of course then the massive rain and threat of flooding started. LOL Yes, I took that as a sign I wasn't supposed to start the gym this week. Baby steps.....I must remember baby steps. It will happen.
I have tried to take some pictures this week for PJ, Week 2. I can really see some weeks there will be only one page and maybe not even one. I am ok with a monthly recap as well. I have also started journaling in my calendar every day. Just a note or two about the day. I really try to find something positive. I really do believe attitude is everything so I am working on just being positive. This weekend I am going to scrap all day Saturday at Archiver's with a pal. I know I need to get out more as well but realistically I know I need to start off small. So I am trying to pace myself. The following weekend (19th) I also have a commitment so like I said trying to just pace myself. Next on my list is to schedule a class with Apple. I need more help in getting IPhoto down pat and then I can move on. It is really to basic and simple if you ask me. I old Microsoft program did more than this does. I think I am going to make the leap to Photoshop. It is such a big program in the education end for what I want. There are many online places I know of that I like and could learn from. I know there is a more detailed IPhoto program so I will check into it to see what it is about but I think I am leaning toward Photoshop. Next up will be taxes and I am not looking forward to that. Just a pain. I will get a refund this year and it liable to be the last year for that too!
The 19th also brings my 10 year anniversay here at work. Yup 10 years....WOW hard to believe but there you have it. Looking forward to the bonus that comes with that too!
That sums up the last few days and I am now going to focus on work so I am out of here.
Have a great day one and all!
