Catching up!

Hello blog world!  I apologize for being MIA.  I have been really busy as of late and have not had proper time to sit down to blog.  I hope all of you are doing well!  We have been hit with a bunch of snow this week.  I love it but could do without all the cold.  Snow with 70 degrees would be great....I wonder if the Big Guy can work on that one.  I have spent the morning doing all sorts of cooking and baking!  It was snowing here and I missed out on all the Thursday snow day activities because of work.   It was so great to try out a bunch of recipes that I had been wanting to make!  Ribs are in the crockpot, tomato soup with mozzarella croutons for lunch, PB&J cookie bars for whenever (probably not diet friendly but I refuse to give up all treats) and protein bars!  I have been a busy bee! 

I have been doing pretty well staying on course the past week or so.  I weighed in on Wed at my normal time and was at 208.8!  That number seemed more realistic than the previous week!  I am still on course and really feel that the weight will take care of itself in the end.  The important thing is I am losing inches and feeling so much better.  Except for breathing...between the cold and a sinus congestion my asthma has been a little cranky.  I am taking my meds like I am supposed to and doing better this week.  Funny thing huh? 

The meal planning is going along smoothly.  The tracking is inconsistent but I am doing better than in the past.  Although, I've clearly slacked through this weekend.  I'll have to catch up later...yes, later!  

My exercise has been the most consistent part!  Sure there were days were I dreaded going but I made myself do it.  And I am always glad that I did!  I actually used the elliptical twice in the past week.  I have always despised them.  It wasn't as bad as I thought but they still aren't my first choice in equipment!  See you can teach an old dog new tricks!

I have completed 40.57 miles in the JanGTD challenge!  I think I might just hit that 50 miles yet, lol!! Woo hoo.  Another goal being met!  

Have  wonderful Sunday y'all and I will post some recipes later!
