Wednesday Hodgepodge

 
 
1. What's changed in your life, home, or community since your last birthday? 
My birthday was May so not very much at all I am sad to say. Actually nothing really. I really like my predictable life right now! LOL
2. September is Classical Music Month. Do you like/listen to classical music? If so what's a favorite piece and/or who is a favorite composer? 
 
Not really a fan at all unless I am at the Opera. Is that classical? LOL
3. Besides The Bible, what's a book that has positively changed your life, relationships, career, or perspective? How so? 
I love the Big Book! It has transformed my entire life and even, do I dare say, given me a life! I owe everything I have today to those first 100!!!!
4. I read (here) these ten hobbies will make you smarter...play a musical instrument, read voraciously, meditate regularly, work out your brain (puzzles, sudoku, board games, etc), exercise often, learn a new language, write your feelings down (blog, journal, just write), travel to new places, cook different kinds of meals, participate in sports actively. Are any on this list your current hobbies? Which hobby on the list would you be most inclined to try? 
I workout everyday (running, barre or body pump) and I love puzzles and board games! I also journal all the time when I need to talk something out with myself!
5. What sports traditions does your family have? 
 
No traditions - we just LOVE our Pirates, Penguins and Steelers with every part of our being!
6. In a few words, weigh in on the current football/National Anthem brouhaha. Keep it family friendly please.
 
There is too much drama for me in everyday stuff that just does not need that much attention. I feel exactly the same about the election! We could learn a lot from the older generations that say "if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all".
7. Where do you have loads of patience, and where do you most lack patience? 
Driving is the only area where I completely lack patience! I have zero when I am behind the wheel of a car! LOL
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I am so happy that half the week is over! 
 

Week 7 - Weigh in Wednesday

I started on July 24, 2016 and have lost 22.4 pounds since then.

From last Wednesday to this Wednesday I have lost 1 pound. UGH!!!!! I am watching and not cheating and drinking water and exercising and I feel like I should have lost more than that!!!

Week 6 - Weigh in Wednesday


Hi everyone! I hope you all are having an amazing September!!! BTW-How is it September already?!?!? WOWSA! Time is seriously flying by!

Well, I hope everyone has had a great last week of weight loss?!?! I kind of maintained. I was a little updet at first and then I realized that it took a lot of will power to just maintain this week.

I had the long holiday weekend with my family at the lake. The weekend was filled with sweets and junk food and also really good comfort food that I love! My family had ribs one day, meatloaf the other day and then potato salad and burgers on the final day! See, lots of will power! I ate Lean Cuisine instead of all of that! I also avoided peanut butter chocolate crispy squares, cookies galore and ice cream birthday cake!

The only thing I allowed myself was a bite of rib, a bite of meatloaf and a bite of Mom's homemade potato salad and a few deviled eggs.

After all those days of willpower, I had a work celebration luncheon at Baywood on Tuesday and I ate strip steak filet and chocolate icebox cake! That was yesterday....HA! So, I am very glad it is not worse than it is on the scale!

I still worked out everyday either with barre or jogging and made sure to get my water.


Time for Weigh in Wednesday results!


I started on July 24, 2016 and have lost 21.4 pounds since then.

From last Wednesday to this Wednesday I have lost 0.2 pounds. See, a little shabby but I feel good about it anyway! At least it is not up!

This week I have also found the time to add in two or three classes of Pure Barre along with my running/jogging/walking training for the half marathon in October at Hershey.
