small loss, yea a loss

Monday, January 20, 2020

Today I lost 0.4 # for the week. I'm happy as that is close to the half a pound a week that is my goal. We all love big losses but the small ones add up and are still a reason to celebrate. If I can loss that, then I should be down to my lowest point in over 20 years by years end. But shouldn't get ahead of myself. One day, one week, one month at a time to get to my yearly goal of about 215. I'll have lots of time to think about a reward but I do plan on something really nice.
I went to upper body class today and then treadmill. Seems Monday upper body is machines. I still had trouble on the one where I lift the weight up above my head but did better today than last week. I think it was 5 machines in the 30 minutes. Did 4 sets of 12 except for the over my head and that was just 3 sets of 10. The instructor tells me that if I keep it up then I'll be doing them easy someday (but who knows how long from now?). At least not sore doing upper arm classes and we'll see on Wed/Thur after do strength training.
I am got so mad at my son yesterday after we went to store, he was helping to put stuff up when he emptied a box and when I asked him about it, he just flashed the box at me like I could read it. So I asked again and he just pointed. I could see it was something in a plastic bag that was red but I still didn't know exactly what it was and why he removed it from the box so I asked again and he starts calling names and says I should be able to see what it was so I'm yelling back at him and all I got was that it is sauce but I'm not sure from what and why we have some type of frozen sauce as I know I didn't buy any boxes of just sauce. I didn't ask any more but because he can't answer a simple question (this is a common issue between us), then he will not be getting to eat out like he wanted. In fact, although I will continue to eat out at least one meal per week, I do not plan to include him as either breakfast while he sleeps or lunch while he is at school.
Have a great week and Happy MLK Day to all. Freedom is still just a dream for too many.

    It's like the song says, "and it all adds up!" You are doing just fine the way you are going along. You're changing habits, you're consistent, and you're not giving up. Those 3 things are huge parts of the battle. I'm happy for you.

    As for the manchild, consequences for actions are the best way to correct behavior in my opinion.

    "Don't let go of the reins just because the horse bucks." It's my quote for both the lifestyle change and the kid LOL

    Peace out Sister!

    First, congrats on the loss. That's good!

    So sorry about sons attitude. **SIGH* SO hard to deal with but you're giving consequences. That's all you can do.

    Way to go on the loss. This is especially good as I bet you are gaining muscle with all your working out.

    Congrats on the weight loss. It all adds up, and as you know, slower is better. With the machines and strength training, you will probably see a big difference in measurements before the numbers change on the scale.

    Who can figure out teens? They do grow up...eventually. Hang in there.

    Wishing you a pleasant evening and a happy Tuesday. emoticon emoticon

    Congratulations on the loss. You must be building muscle with all the additional exercise you are doing.
