A shout out to "Seeing in color" and other not so interesting stuff.
I have been watching what I eat and being careful about my carb intake... I also went to the movies wednesday and didn't eat any popcorn. In fact, I snuck in a Baked Salmon filet and ate that during the movie... I am trying to get my protein goals in and have been pretty close. It seems like when I meet my protein goals, I go over my calories. So it is all a learning experience. I haven't been working out really though, a little walking but not going to the gym. I haven't been able to develop a routine that includes the gym yet, but I will eventually. I know it will be less painful when I lose more weight. I can handle the sore muscles that we all deal with after working out but the joints swell up and the pain is unbearable. I know that Water aerobics is what's best for me but the time of the class never seems to work out and I tried doing what I learned on my own and I am not ready for that yet. I need the teacher to tell me what to do... and I need to go. I think I might have found a YMCA that has a 12noon water aerobics which would be more convienent for me but I haven't gone yet. Anyway, I will try to start that routine next week and keep walking my dog several times a day until then... As long as I can each time. On a more personal note... tomorrow is my 4 month bandiversary so I have to make an effort to take photos for my progress scrapbook. I feel great about my band and my progress but I think I need another fill and I need to eat less more often... and slower. SO those are my goals for this week... Well, I am going to do my first shout outs... now that I have over 100 followers many of them due to Steph and Draz giving me a boost... I am going to lead you to one of our own who is from Australia and newly banded on June 9th,2010, I started following her because she is quirky and funny and has a great blog that I love to read... Well, some of you loyal follower may also enjoy it so here goes... She thinks she's stuck at 29 followers, I definitely know how that feels and how amazing having the support and love of this incredible group of women feels... Her blog Seeing in Color can be found at http://lappy4life.blogspot.com/ Tell her I sent you down under, It makes me sound like a Pimp... Love you guys! *Maria*
