Who knew….

So I have been walking again.  I know its bout time but I am doing this and feeling good about it again :0)

Last week I logged 28.74 miles and 66,620 steps.  I feel good about it too!

One step is better then one more second on the couch for me. I was going to skip it today and just sleep in but God had other plans.  I woke up from a crazy nightmare and thought well I’m up I might as well walk it off and I did!  Saw a beautiful sun rise.  I am blessed.

I am drinking more water again and eating better and am feeling good!  Started measuring again this week so I will get back caught up with that on my next blog.  Watching my BP.  I am on meds but my BP is way low compared to what it has been to get me on said BP meds.  I go to the Doc in 3 weeks and I am going to talk to her about that.  If it stays low I may have to adjust by calling her.  We shall see.  My BP after a 1.5 mile walk and a 25 minute bike ride in the humidity was 117/63  that seems a bit low but Im watching it.

Other then that life is what it is.  

I made zucchini bread from scratch.  Let me tell ya it was WONDERFUL!  Neighbors liked it and I am taking a piece to my dad and sister the rest well….its mine :0)

well that is my update…..till next time…….

An update

As I sit in my study room I thought I would give an update on my journey.
I haven’t been eating right and I know that. Still been under my calorie counts but not eating food that will help me with weight loss. I really need to work on this. The scale shows no change however…..The inches are falling off. Due to more walking I’m sure. 7 inches off my body in 22 days! 2 alone on my waist. We will call that a win. (insert happy dance)
I didn’t walk much this week due to some stomach issues but I am planning a big come back…..I have a good support system that I need to use more often. I also got a fitbit and let me tell you i love it! It keeps track of so may things and keeps me accountable. If you have fit bit and want to buddy up send me message. we can challenge each other! Being able to see my sleep patterns has helped me adjust when I need to go to bed as well. Love it!
I can tell a big difference in my stamina when i don’t walk so that is getting moved back t the top of the list of things i need to do for me.
Speaking of wins….school s going relatively well. One class I am struggling in but I think I am working it out. Ok my struggling and yours may not be the same, I have an A in the class but i keep failing the exams. I know the material but I’l be danging if I can get it right on the test. Talked with the prof and he gave me a few ideas. We will see if that works.
That pretty much sums up the last few weeks for me.
Hope all of your journeys are successful!
