Good morning, everyone.... how are we all doing this morning? Sorry, I'm running a bit late, but it's taken me a while to get caught up on forums, etc.
I did relatively well with my eating this past week, but haven't fared so well with exercise. I, typically, had been walking for an hour every day, with my "winter neighbor". She has now gone back to her home state for the summer and I'm left to my own devices. I don't do so well for the first few days she's gone.
Anyway, I have to own a 3 pound increase this week -- just happened overnight, so I have to put most of it down to fluid retention, though I did eat a few more calories yesterday (certainly not enough to gain 3 pounds, though...). Yesterday, I did a lot of yard work, including trimming a palm tree with lots of thorns on it and I got stuck multiple times. The thorns are almost like a "sting", so my hands are very sore and swollen this morning. I'm going to soak them in some Epsom salt to see if that will relieve the swelling a bit. If not for the swelling, 6 hours of yard work, would have been excellent exercise, since it included a lot mowing with a push mower, which is both walking and strength training.
Okay - so that's my story and I'm sticking to it... lol How are you doing this morning? Hope everyone has had a successful week. If you met the challenge goal of losing 1 pound, congratulations; you did great and hope you can keep it up. If not, can you tell us what the stumbling block(s) were/are, so we can try to help you? Maybe we can get back on track together.
Remember: we win, by losing - weight.
Wishing everyone a great, successful week....
