Checking In...plus Plot Your Walk and a Bonus Healthy Choice Coupon!

Okay, time to fess up. I weighed Sunday. I didn't like what it said, so I didn't post it. But, I promised to post triumphs and trials, so here goes. I was back up to 161.4. However, in my defense, I worked all day Saturday and ate crappy stuff and didn't work out. So my plan was to give myself another day and get back on track, then weigh again. Then I woke up not feeling well Monday and Tuesday, and I just never weighed again. So, I guess that's my "official" weigh-in for the week. Let's hope next week is better.

I'm using my sticker chart, (Here's to external motivation! Yay!) and I do truly think it helps me to actually be able to see what I did or didn't do. Seems that
if I'm gonna skip anything, I skip eating my fruit. And unfortunately I've found that on days I don't eat my fruit for breakfast, the rest of the day kind of goes to pot. Seems like that healthy start really does set the tone for the rest of my day. So, must work on getting that fruit in first thing!

Also, it occurred to me that you might be interested to know what Kathy was referring to when she asked if I used "that website" to see how long our walk was. There's a great site here that lets you actually see the streets in your town and plot where exactly you walk. As you plot your various turning points, it calculates how far you've gone. Very cool!

And last, but not least, Healthy Choice is offering a $2 off coupon online. I saw this on Biggest Loser last night. I have mixed feelings about that show, but maybe that's a post for another day!

The important thing is that you're working on it. You'll get there, Janet!
