Turn the @#$% thing off!!


Ok maybe I am being a little harsh and this might be a bit of an oxymoron in the sense I am on my laptop at 5:30 in the morning typing this post up…but really can we all just shut everything off for a little bit. Have we really got to a point where all we can do is stare at screens all day and not realize what is going on in the world around us? I know it’s hard. I am very guilty in the sense that I am on my computer a lot of the day because of work and even when I get off in the afternoon I am back on. I am going to start today after I get off work…to set some time aside without anything on. No TV, smart phone (except for calling), no computer, at least for a couple of hours. I think I am getting too involved with being on line and I think it is effecting my take on things. I don’t like the way it has started to influence my thinking. So everyday at least for the month of June, I am going to do that. I am going shut the @#$% thing of 😛

Monthly Weight Check 7/28


Ok I am not too happy about my weight at the moment. I have been doing what I need to but did not reach my goal. Realistically, I know I did improve because as I said in my last post I lost an inch off of my backside. But as far as reaching that magic number for this month, I did not quite make it. I’m not going to beat myself up about it but it is a little annoying when you know you are working out and you are eating right and there is not enough change. I know that it is so easy to get discouraged when you don’t see what you want to see, but I am not going to do that. I see the difference in my shape and the way my clothes fit. I feel the difference when I am out hiking with my family. I know the difference every day that I wake up, I feel so much more energy. So whereas my number has not reached my goal, my body is changing and I know those numbers will change.


My next monthly goal August 25, 2016 – 173 pounds     current weight: 178.8

Fit Challenge Week 6


So here I am another week has gone by. I have not lost weight since last week but at least I did not gain. I am still where I was last week. The only thing that did change I lost an inch on my backside. I guess that’s a good thing 🙂  I can actually get into a pair of jeans that did not fit me 2 months ago. Unfortunately, I do not think I am going to make it to my goal for this month 0f 176 but I am going to wait till Thursday and see where I am. Until then here are my stats for this week:


Fit Challenge week 6:

Height: 5′ 7″
