Ok, unless you’re in the NMFAPIMWLC you probably don’t care about the stairs. 24 steps and I’m going to use them every day…no elevator for me. πŸ˜€ But everybody’s got to love this view from my new second story office!
View from my 2nd floor office

For the last 2 1/2 years I’ve been in an office 10×12 with no windows and not much people interaction. What more can I ask for? I’ve got a view, stairs to keep me moving, people to visit with. Thank you Lord!

Have you noticed that when you start to do something good obstacles just seem to jump out at you? Suffice it to say I had another stressful week and my eating suffered. I didn’t eat much so that in itself is bad. My water was good though! I only missed one day of exercise. So hovering in the same place – haven’t moved in 2 weeks but I hoping now that I have a new job and events are behind me that life will calm down.

Oh hey would ya’ll pray for me…I do not want to come down with that intestinal bug going around the valley. It is quite debilitating and I start my new job today.

Here is our list challengees…go share some encouragement with them!

Well I’ll just come right out with it…I had a birthday so you know that means cake! And then a bridal shower and that meant chocolate cake! But really, I don’t think I lost anything, I mean I didn’t gain anything cause I know I didn’t lose any. :LOL:

Half the week I was good on water and then the last half I wasn’t again. So, I’m shooting for the whole week this time. I did exercise 5 days, so missed one day but I’m happy with that. As long as I stick with the 5 I’m good. I count day 6 and 7 as bonus!

Here’s the list of the rest of us. Go bless them would you?

Can you believe it, 3 weeks already!

I did pretty well, I added 1lb to the weights in hand when I use my stepper, so they are at 3lbs. Wow, what a difference! And I used my stepper 6 days instead of 5. I think that is good, because I need 1 day of the weekend exercising anyway. I don’t know that I lost anymore but I’m back in some of my clothes comfortably.

And I tell you, closing that 4 inch gap in my jeans was most amazingly wonderful! I feel so much better.Β  Really the hard part is starting – the number on the scale that doesn’t want to disappear…I will be incredibly happy to move it 5 more lbs. 10 is ideal and I would be happy there, and love to maintain that. So, off I go!

Another week done!

I was successful in adding another minute to my stepper. And also much better at the chair swivels – post it notes work wonders (and getting over myself that someone may walk by my office and see me). It has made a difference.

I have lost a couple of pounds, actually I am now wearing pants I couldn’t even think about wearing 2 weeks ago. Feeling better!!

In case you missed it we have a Facebook group now, details can be found here. Here are the links to everyone I know about that has jumped in. Anyone else want to?

My journey started here. This is where I am now. Here is where it really all began and here. A brief rundown of how it all works can be found here.

I have progressed. I did really well with the stepper, and I use 2 lb weights when I’m on it. I do a torso twist and make sure my arms cross my chest. I’m seeing a tummy dent, nary a pound but a tummy dent is even better!

So, my goal this week is to have added 1 more minute consistently. For some reason my water intake has not been what it should be so I’m going to make sure to get it back up to 8 glasses/day. Especially important with the weather we are having. Gosh who was it that said cranberry juice. I’ve got to get me some, I love it! I’ll have some with my morning oatmeal…well maybe before. πŸ˜‰

Welcome Theresa, Lynn, Darla and Natalie (applause here) to the group. I’ve added them to our roll below.
