A little surprised!

Today is weigh in day, and I have to admit that I was dreading it a little bit because of all the junk foods I ate last weekend. I just knew that eating out 3 times and having pizza and birthday cake at Logan's party was going to do me in. But, when I stood on the scale this morning, it showed that I still managed to loose 1/2 pound. That is better than gaining which is what I feared would be the case after eating so much bad for me foods last weekend.
Now for the measurements, hmmmmmmmm---- 1" off of my thighs and 1/4 " off of my upper arms makes me very happy. But nothing loss on hips and waist. I am guessing that means I need to step up on the exercises. I am not as consistent on strength training as I am with walking. I really need to work on improving that part of my routine to a healthier me.
I checked out the YMCA here in Houma yesterday, it will cost us $600 per year because Dale retired from Texaco/Chevron and we still have our United Health Care insurance with them. Other wise it would be $720 per year. So we decided that we will give ourselves a yearly membership for Christmas this year. That will help me out in achieving my strength training exercises. If I have a membership, I will use it, that if for sure. Dale said that he will go with me if I am willing to go at 5AM when they open. I agreed to his terms! Anything to get him exercising with me, he needs it as bad as me if not more!
