I am tired today. I am struggling with wanting to eat today. I am not hungry. I just want to eat. Everything sounds yummy. Even things I don't really like! Today is testing my willpower! Not to mention I have spent a lot of my day in meetings or at my desk. Not many steps at work. No morning walk before work. No walk on my lunch hour - it's been raining outside.
Tonight is my friend in the nursing home's birthday. I will be visiting her tonight and spending most of my after work hours there - so probably no long walk with the dog.
I was hoping to send June out with a bang. I am anxious to see what Mr Scale has to say tomorrow morning. My eating has been pretty on track with a couple exceptions. My exercise has been good, even a step up from where it was last month. I am trying to keep my focus on that. It has been a pretty good month - REGARDLESS of the number Mr Scale pops up! It has been 30 days since I have stepped on that scale! That alone was a challenge!
My friend in the nursing home told me her weight was under 300. This is a first in quite a few years for her. She sounded encouraged, however said she was in quite a bit of pain today. She did complete her therapy though! But then her daughters showed up with pizza and cake for her birthday! I want to say they shouldn't do that or she won't have many more birthdays - but then again a birthday IS a celebration.
Thinking ahead for July. I am not participating in the summer 5% challenge this time. It seems strange to not be participating! However, I am still challenging myself. My challenge for July is to keep off the scale after July 1 until the first of August. To eat healthy food in healthy amounts and exercise daily. Yep, keeping it simple. Otherwise I obsess and burn out. The challenge is to do these SIMPLE things with two vacations planned. There will be lots of days in the car driving - so steps will be a challenge! I will need to get creative!
Here's a smile for you..... while doing my virtual walk, it was naked hiking day. Yep, NAKED hiking day! I can't imaging hiking up in the mountains naked in that snow, and crossing those chilly creeks, but....
that hip pack is strategically positioned!
the rock IS cold!
some of the sights other than naked hikers...
Seems like lots of cold and snow to be traipsing around naked in!
My restful stopping point for the day.
The hours are dwindling! Send off June on a good note my friends!
