Happy Sunday! 

Didn't do my muscle routines yesterday, at least not formal ones.  Got a really good workout cleaning our bedroom - hoovering (vacuuming) drapes, mattress, window seat cushions, moving dressers and nightstands to hoover underneath and dust behind them, washed windows and mirrored closet, cleaned under bed, removed ALL dust from everywhere, etc etc....a top to bottom cleaning. 

Todays project:  sand the stains off one of our beechwood countertops and oil it. 

Workout at home (lower body):
  • squats, lunges w/dumbbells 
  • thighs/glutes with ankle weights
  • planks - full and alternating
  • thigh master  
  • abs-3 routines
  • bridge (for glutes, core, thighs)
  • calf lifts
Menu:      
  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/date-raisin-apricot mix/soy milk, tea w/milk, diluted oj
  • L: 2 eggs, polenta, wholegrain toast w/lite spread
  • D: veggie & lentil curry & basmati rice, salad w/clementine
  • S:  plain yogurt w/raspberries
  • Teas & water & coffee w/almond milk
TOTAL:  under 1400
 

Progress as of today: 27 lbs lost so far, only 10 lbs to go!

hollybelle on 07/28/2013:
I SO need to do that kind of cleaning of our bedroom and bathroom!!! Also the den and kitchen - yup - pretty much everywhere. But I won't do it until the winter! It's not THAT bad but just above yucky! Don't do much cleaning during the summer unless it rains for days! Good job on your day!!

Your scale doesn't look too bad, Annie. I see you bouncing back to where you are comfortable. Good attitude. I Like It !

grannyannie on 07/27/2013:
Feel best as I get closer to 132 or less. I'll get there!


hollybelle on 07/27/2013:
Ah, super cleaning! I haven't done it anywhere for awhile. I guess winter is coming so I guess I'll do it then. Good food and activity, as usual!

grannyannie on 07/27/2013:
Having guests always motivates me to get it done. :)


V on 07/27/2013:
Good news is you are closer to your goal weight so that is a success in my book!! Have a wonderful weekend, love ya Annie :)

Weight: 141.4

Back online.    Thanks for your comments.  

Tuesday was a very long day in Glasgow. Eye exam and ordering new glasses took an hour. Then I had my hair chopped off. Looked for clothes but only found 2 sleeveless tops. I was good at lunchtime but then after my haircut I went to the cookie/ice cream right next door. Very small milkshake and small cookie.   I keep trying to remind myself how fantastic it feels to be 130 lbs or less and how nice it was to enjoy having a treat with zero guilt. Got to get this weight off before my family comes in September so I can really enjoy an occasional treat/beer when we go out. 

Wednesday the hubby and I went canoeing all day. Thursday was spin class.

Workout at gym:

  • 30 mins spin bike
  • 10 mins treadmill
  • 5 mins rowing machine
  • 2 sets of 12 on 4 resistance machines (upper body and back)    

Workout at home (upper):

  • 7 min video routine for triceps/arms using .5kg wrist weights
  • dumbbells - 3 sets of 12 - 7 routines
  • push ups, triceps dips
  • side dips with dumbbell 

Menu:

  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/date-raisin-apricot mix/soy milk, tea w/milk, diluted oj
  • S:  post gym workout:  2 oatcakes w/pb
  • L:  seeded wholegrain toast w/low fat hummous, plain yogurt & fresh raspberries
  • D: veggie and tofu curry & basmati rice, salad w/clementine
  • S:  grapes  
  • Teas & water & coffee w/almond milk

TOTAL:  1440

Progress as of today: 25.6 lbs lost so far, only 11.4 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 07/26/2013:
Mornin' Annie !

grannyannie on 07/26/2013:
Hiya Ohio!


Umpqua on 07/26/2013:
Sounds like you had a nice trip to Glasgow. I know what you mean about maintaining a lower weight so the occasional indulgence doesn't hurt as much. Hope you have a nice weekend!

grannyannie on 07/26/2013:
Same to you!


legcramps on 07/26/2013:

Updated weight. No sense in crying about it. Just getting back on track. 

I hurt the arch on one of my feet while hiking on the island - wore light hiking shoes instead of my big, heavy hiking boots.  And I'm sorry I did. I don't want plantar fasciitis again so I'm wearing support sandals around the house and being careful. Won't do the workout I'd planned today but will do my lower body muscle routine.  

A couple of pics on the island: our beautiful Ugandan daughter, and the Abbey

 

Workout at home (lower body):

  • squats, lunges w/dumbbells
  • thighs/glutes with ankle weights
  • planks - fu  ll and alternating
  • thigh master  
  • abs-4 routines
  • bridge (for glutes, core, thighs)
  • calf lifts

Menu:

  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/date-raisin-apricot mix/soy milk, tea w/milk
  • L: 3 oatcakes w/low fat hummous, plain yogurt & fresh strawberries, grapes
  • D: veggie curry & basmati rice, salad w/pumpkin seeds/walnut pieces/almond slivers
  • S:  apple, clementine
  • Teas & water & coffee w/almond milk
