Weight: 140.8

Went to a funeral Friday - did not think about what I ate or drank.  Stepdaughter and her son were here yesterday as well. Husband is gone today as he's helping entertain 3 year old/or drive and will come home tomorrow via train.   

Two weeks today until I begin my journey to the US.  Goal won't be met but I'll do the best I can in the next two weeks. And I'll have to really watch myself while I'm there for 5 weeks. 

Menu:

  • L:  strawberries, banana, yogurt, 1/2 chicken sandwich, cereal bar
  • S:  leftover unfrosted cake that stepdaughter wouldn't take with her
  • D:  2 egg and asparagus omelette, toast, salad
  • Tea w/soy milk, coffee w/almond milk, low cal tonic water, herbal teas

Cals:  estimate about 1400

Workout at home (upper):

  • 11 routines with dumbbells - 3 x 12
  • push ups - 3 x 12
  • triceps dips - 3 x 12

Workout at home (lower):  

  • side dips w/dumbbell - 3 x 10
  • squats with dumbbells -  3 x 10
  • lunges w/dumb   bells using step - 3 x  10
  • lunges w/dumb bells - 3 x 10
  • side lunges w/dumbbells using step - 3 x 10

  • planks - 3
  • abs-4 routines x 3
  • bridge (for glutes, core, thighs) - 9 x 10 seconds
  • calf lifts w/dumbbell - 3 x 10
 

Progress as of today: 26.2 lbs lost so far, only 8.8 lbs to go!

Just a number on a scale. I think your goal is Well Met by your health and attitude. Have a great weekend, Annie.

grannyannie on 08/09/2015:
Thanks O.R.! :)

1400 calories is great- even with the cake. Sorry about your loss.

grannyannie on 08/09/2015:

Enjoy your week!

grannyannie on 08/10/2015:
Thanks!


Mistyrose on 08/10/2015:
Funerals are stressful and you did fairly well. Unfortunately with company there is left over food and it can be tempting. I still think you did good, I probably would have to throw it out or I would eat the rest. Have a good week

grannyannie on 08/10/2015:
I've thrown out food before to keep myself from eating it. Should have done it this time. I threw out the rest of a jar of Nutella when daughter visited and left. I can't be trusted with Nutella!

Keep up the good work and just do what you can pre-trip! Hang in there!

Not ready for the scale.  Spent the day in Glasgow with husband's uncle who lives in a care home for those with dementia, and brother in law and niece.  Went out to lunch.  I was good and had a 423 calorie chicken breast burger with salad instead of chips. No beer. We got home late and hubby had the leftover curry and I had carrot soup, pbj toast, tomatoes, cucumber, and pears.  Calories were about 1450.  

Tomorrow we are going back into Glasgow to a hotel.  Catching a very early bus Thursday morning for a 3 hour ride to grandson's house.  Dinner will be at brother in laws.

Thanks! I'll get there eventually.


Umpqua on 07/27/2015:
I'm sure all the bike riding you're doing has offset some of the damage. It looks like you had a lot of fun with your guests!

grannyannie on 07/27/2015:
Unfortunately very little riding last week. I'm missing it!! Did enjoy them when they finally got up! :)


puddles on 07/27/2015:
It is nice to have company but it is nice to get back to our routine. It will all fall into place you will see Annie.

13 mile bike ride today.  Lunch at botanic gardens cafe:  warm baguette with ham and cheese, side salad.  Resisted cakes.  

Baked oatmeal raisin cookies to take to a brunch tomorrow.  Ate one.  

Dinner:  grilled chicken wrapped in bacon, roasted potatoes & carrots, cauliflower.  

A couple of G & T's, small glass of beer.  

Will be back on track Monday.  Travel Weds - Sat.  Then back on track again.

Not going near the scale.  

Haven't left the house to go to the gym.  I'm enjoying our guests.  3 days away visiting grandson next week. 

Tried for a bike ride today but it started raining too hard.

I think I'll do a no-alcohol like I did before Thailand last year.   I normally only have some when we have company, go out, or go to friends, but it's enough to keep me from losing.  I'll do extra gym days as well.  And of course keep calories strict. 

Progress as of today: 29.4 lbs lost so far, only 5.6 lbs to go!

puddles on 07/24/2015:
Sounds like a plan Annie.

grannyannie on 07/25/2015:
Thanks.


hollybelle on 07/24/2015:
Just put off getting on scale when all is settled down and you know you're in the clear, maybe???

grannyannie on 07/25/2015:
Well, with all I've been eating plus lack of exercise, I'm just hoping I haven't gained so much I can't meet goal for my trip. In fact, I might avoid the scale for a week or two.

Still around.  Afraid to get on scale.  Been very weak-willed.    Both guests will be gone Monday but then going to visit grandson on Weds for a few days. 

Hope you all are doing well and getting healthy and fit.
