Stay warm…exercise!

Happy Winter Wonderland Monday!  A funny thing happened yesterday.  Due to my “I am eating super healthy” mode, I hid a bunch of candy that I had WAY too much of around the house.  My son wanted to bring some to church for his class and I couldn’t remember where I put it!  I checked in every hiding place I could think of!  I guess that’s one way to stay on target. I had a really good eating weekend!  YAY me!  HOWEVER, my scale is up and keeps going up!  What the?  I weighed myself Saturday, Sunday, and today and each day I went up a pound.  Hello!  No scale for me (:

There is some good news in this story!  I found some old measurements I did in June and my weight was a little lower then and higher measurements.  Now, my measurements are lower and higher weight.  Hmmm…I think I’ll take the measurements over the scale any day!!  I tried on my skinny jeans that only fit me at 132 or less and they fit fine!   I hope my clients are reading this!!!  The scale is the LEAST accurate way to track losing weight!  I’m still hittin’ it hard at the gym and in the food dept.  This is what I had for breakfast today!  Sweet potato hash browns, orange slices, and 1 egg/3 egg whites with salsa.

I need the piano music and it’s even a good running song.  I’d better get on with the day.  I have a lot to do this week!!!  Happy eating and working out.  NO EXCUSES!!!
