Life Just keeps getting Better.....

Yes it does. Okay, so I lost another 2.2 pounds this week…..just doing what I do. It’s really not a struggle any more. I marvel every day how I can move around so much easier, climb up and down the ladder to water the screened in garden (where, btw, I have gloated over SLUGS each morning, worming their way over the screens, unable to get in..hehehe..maybe I was being too mean to the lizards, but we’ll see), carry buckets full of water, go to the gym, eat in my target calorie and WW range. None of it is hard. In fact, it’s easy.

It’s so nice to be feeling so great…I feel like I could lift those two bags of rice I’ve been carrying around. But, not quite yet…..at least I couldn’t press them a couple of sets. But, I can press these babies, and do lunges and pectoral whatever they’re called, and bicep curls. I am so excited..can you tell???

My 52K plan is going okay. I’m still doing the walk 2/jog 1, but it isn’t getting any easier and my heart just hates it! Okay, that might be too strong, but I just want my heart rate to stay where it’s supposed to. I’ll keep on with it, and appreciate that an hour of cardio is de rigeur these days, not a hard thing.

I’m off to Oregon tomorrow...to pick berries!!!! I was planning on going to Hilo to see my friend Karla and see a very cool planetarium show with Pink Floyd music, but the plane tickets didn’t work out. I was kind of disappointed, so, my daughter told me the flights were open to Portland, so off I go again. I feel so so lucky to be able to do all this cool stuff. I’ll post pics. And eat lots of berries. Promise.

Hi Kristy, congrats on your continued success! I only got started with my health and fitness kick (again) last week and I already feel great, mentally AND physically. I think getting started is the hardest part, but the benefits start almost immediately.

Anyway, keep up the good work!
