253–Monday (Weigh-In Day)

011011 (2)

There was snow on the ground this morning.  Only an inch or two, and it wasn’t very pretty, but it still meant that I couldn’t drive my car to work.  Tyler ended up not having to go in, so I took his vehicle instead.

Right now at work I’m doing all my end of month and end of year reports.  I get in a serious “zone” and I’m sure I’m not much fun to be around, but I’m almost done and then life will be back to normal.  Whatever normal is these days. Ha!

After work, since I didn’t get to the gym at lunch, Tyler and I headed there and I got my cardio in. 

As for my health/fitness goals - I weighed in this morning… typically, in the past, I weighed in on Sundays BEFORE Free Day eating, but I am weighing in on Mondays for now so that affects how much Free Day eating I do.  Anyway, I weighed in this morning and I was down 2.5 pounds for the week.  It would have been more, but that’s the Free Day effect.  (I was down 3.5 on Sunday morning). I’m going to try to update weekly on my fitness blog. (I did a horrible job last year!!)

I’m not following any eating plan. I’m simply choosing healthy foods and trying to make sure I eat plenty of good, lean proteins, whole grains, fruits, veggies, and healthy, essential fats.  It’s hard to eat enough when you don’t add junk or empty calories.  You really can eat a LOT of food and stay within a healthy calorie range.  That’s the bonus.

That sounds like a great goal. You are already doing so well.

Good for you, Jacquie! I need to lose a lot of weight. I have the habit of 'grazing' and my computer is not far from the kitchen! I do like nibbles and I guess I just need to have healthful nibbles on hand!
