Week 28, etc Summary

Since we consider today, Labor Day, to be the official end of summer, it's time to stop the summer weight gain/loss roller coaster ride.  And I suppose time to get back to my blog.  It's way too easy to be bad when I'm not writing.  It's one reason to write...that and a few people have been asking for new posts...time to be inspiring...I hope.  Well the good news is I am down 3.3 pounds since Memorial Day, and 17.5 pounds since February. Not too bad, not too bad.

We officially have 5 weeks and 4 days until we leave for Mexico.  19 pounds to goal.  Ultimate goal:  Not gonna happen.  And that's ok.  I can lose a bit more and I can get buff.  

So my plans don't always happen, but I find that when I have a plan I'm not so quick to go off the rails.  Here's my plan:  Get up early every weekday and either jog or do the stationary bike.  Take my multi-vitamin everyday.  Cut back on the sodas again.  Drink all my water.  Zumba 1-2 times a week.  Have nutritious home-made smoothies for breakfast and lunch, healthy snacks and try my best for a sensible dinner.  Lift weights.  Listen to health podcasts.  Search Pinterest for health inspiration.  Write in my blog.

I think if I can stick to most of this I'll be on the right track.  If I can lose a little more than a pound a week, I can still hit my ultimate goal by my work conference in December (8 weeks after Mexico) and still be unrecognizable!  wink wink

Sorry for the new installment of Tracey's Random Thoughts... and totally ignore the stats on the right.
