A little surprised!

Thursday, November 04, 2010

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!

    YIKES!!! The YMCA in your area shows no mercy!! Here, if you're 62, you join for $55, I think it is and that includes your spouse. Of course, no pool and it's small but has the machines and a gymnasium! Glad you had a loss, no matter how small. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon mary
