|My workout weights and exercise chart.|
My diet has gone from snacking whenever I want, on whatever I want, to snacking on fresh veggies, fruit, and very little white flour items. (crackers, bread, pasta, etc.) I also have stopped eating after 7pm. I know that this is an old wives tale and it is about what not when you eat. It's just that after 7pm all I want to eat is not good for me.
I am also, not drinking my calories. On my weekly cheat day I had some soda, not smart for me, as I will have to battle that urge everyday for a while again. I'm primarily drinking water. I did make a batch of unsweetened sun tea that has been, a nice pick me up in the morning.

nice, neat rows of plants. We even found some ripe
tomatoes, and for the first time in 3 years peppers! (Thanks
in huge part to the new fence My Vet installed)
Over the weekend I did something I rarely do, and purchased some frozen steaks from a door-to-door salesman, They should be a good treat, grilled with veggies. This past weekend My Vet was out of town salmon fishing. If you have been following me for long, you know that means I usually have some projects up my sleeve. So for extra exercise this weekend. I dug out a dozen small trees from behind the garage; trimmed the trees that were hitting me in the head as I mowed; weeded the garden, and used a hand trimmer to trim the grass. (We have a power weed whacker, but I needed gas and the kids were napping....); scrubbed the kitchen floor. I really hate grout! I know that tile is an "upgrade" but I would love to rip mine out and install vinyl flooring. (My house is not of good enough quality for terrazzo, or that would be my preferred flooring choice.); and, spruced up a $5 garage sale find with some black paint;

but I like it!
Because I have convinced myself that I am building muscle, this week I am not disappointed in stagnant weight loss. Next week though...!
