3 Big Weekends

I've been fairly successful on my diet and have increased my treadmill time and just this week started light lifting of weights. Just in time for 3 big weekends. This weekend is Superbowl Sunday. The following Saturday is card night. The following weekend I turn 40. My goal by my birthday was to get down below 200. I'm at least 14 pounds away and with the Superbowl 3 days away I think that is far fetched. I guess my goal this weekend is to really hit the treadmill and weights. Maybe walk one hour each day.

I also was told about the Wendie Plan that says to fluctuate your "points" or calories so the body doesn't get used to a certain amount. I think I've been pretty consistent only having between 1400 and 1600 calories. I may need to have one blowout day this weekend and see if I recover.

At least I'm feeling better!

I need to start walking in our neighborhood more. There are nice paths and such but I just don't do it. Once the weather starts getting a little warmer, that's my new goal.

Reply to wiccachicky: I was really motivated to walk when I had a pedometer that worked.

I have two pedometers from last year. Want to have a competition? No blowout!

Reply to pigs: Those pedometers they gave us were PATHetic. I'm not calling you pathetic, but I'm saying the performance of the pedometers were pathetic.
