A quickie!

So, I finally got in to weigh yesterday...CRAZY. The last time I weighed was June 15th, and I weighed 232.8. Yesterday I weighed 230.2!

Go figure! I did work out for all of June and REALLY watched what I ate and drank (as you can tell by my blog posts).

Then I wasn't nearly as vigilant in July, but I did have LOTS of exercise (especially the week at cheer camp). Anyhoot...I'm not complaining :)

I did ride the bike yesterday for an hour, and I did do some interval riding, so I was definitely sweating and could feel the workout!!

Today I am off to help a friend move! That will be a FANTASTIC workout, I am sure :)

More later...

Tech burn out?

So, I just haven't been motorvated both literally and figuratively.

Haven't been working out :(

Haven't been blogging.

I feel like the blogging bit is because I have Facebook and Twitter, and it feels both redundant and overwhelming to do all of it.

Taking time to think.

As well, not blogging anymore (I know...I appreciate all of the faithful readers out there who have been emailing me...we are doing FANTASTIC! Life is actually quite mellow right now, which is NICE!)...OK, so not blogging anymore also prevents certain people who are TOTALLY obsessed with our lives from obsessing! LOL

NOT that I really have ever cared, but I have noticed that the lack of blogging on my part has equated with less drama on stalker's part. Ya know?!

Plus, when I don't have anything to report in the weight world...I feel less inspired to write on this blog.

I have been eating healthy (except the Mango ice cream and the BBQ at the Lockwoods' house)! Lots of fresh fruit, lots of salads, lots of grilled chicken and yummy fresh fish caught in our local river!

I have not been exercising on purpose. I did do TONS of walking at cheer camp a couple of weeks ago. Need to get motivated. Now that I type this, I think I will ride my recumbent bike today.

I haven't weighed in forever. I have no idea what I weigh, but my summer clothes fit and most are big, so I must be hovering at the same point.

This has been much of a ramble...and, for now, not my last.

This is the LONGEST it has ever been since I have not blogged...Hmmmmm. I have been really busy with cheer camp and then a trip over to Seattle. I will get back to ya either tonight or tomorrow :) Lots to catch up on!! Plus, I am going to try and go weigh tonight...UGH...that could be bad!

It's been too long!

     Looking at this blog, I can't believe I haven't blogged anything since July 1st! It has been a bit busy, but...
     So, for the 4th of July weekend, we went horse camping for four days! It was fabulous! We did get rain on the last morning, but it was still such an adventure :)
     We had one ride of over 14 miles!!! It was amazing :)
     Eating really was good on the trip, as I made all sort of healthy stuff!
     I did also drink enough water each day! Woo hoo!

     OK, so I am just going to move forward.
     Yesterday I did not write everything down...back to that, today!
     I can say I did have FAB exercise yesterday, as we went down to Eastside Park, and I walked while the kiddo rode the bike!
     It was so much fun! I even jogged some :)
     I drank lots of water!
     We were busy bees yesterday :) First, we had breakfast at the Corner Bistro.
     I had a latte with sugar-free caramel. And, I had a piece of zucchini French Toast! It was so good, and one piece filled me up!! I had never had that before, YUMMY! I did not use butter, but did use syrup :)
     Lunch was a small plate of homemade nachos.
     Dinner was a Subway sandwich. I did get a foot-long, and it was a BBQ chicken one.
     And, we had delicious watermelon for dessert!!
     We also went to coffee with one of my close friends, Lorri :) That was fun, and I did have a Coffee Freeze.

OK, so I will post later everything for today! I can tell you that I did do Kickbox Cardio this morning!! And, it kicked my bootie :) Felt so good!!!
