    Worked in the garden yesterday. Took my uncle on some errands. Was more active than normal. Knees hurt today but the scales went down so I'm forging ahead and doing housework today. May get back outside to yard work if its not too humid.

    This feels good.

    Proud of you! My zucchini have taken over my garden! Time to trim the madness!

    Another 1.6 miles logged.....
    These old legs and feet are not happy with the situation, no sir, not happy at all!

    Good Job! Your body will get used to it.

    My daughter and I painted her room on my 2 days off. It was pretty dark teal color and at the top of the wall and ceiling it was a pale blue.

    After sanding the walls, painting 2 coats of Stain Kilz, and painting 2 coats of white on the walls and ceiling it’s finally done. We did add a light grey accent wall as well.

    My body is tired this morning... but it’s totally worth it!

    Tomorrow and Monday will be easy going days for me.
    Not too worried about logging (i.e; not going to).
    I am taking the yacht out, going to overnight in Salcombe.
    Get in a bit of fishing and a lot of sailing!.... I may inflict pictures on you all next week!

    Sunday reality check.

    Height 5'4"
    Last week: 207.4
    Today: 206.0
    1.4 lbs lost

    I've been stepping on the scale throughout the week and have seen slightly lower numbers so I'm more excited that this check-in warrants :smile:

    Focus for this week: daily exercise

    Phew! A lot of work, but I bet it's beautiful. And time with your daughter is a bonus.

    Weigh-in day, didn't do too good this week.
    PW: 198.2
    CW: 200.3

    We've had grandkids this week so I haven't been doing too good on my healthy eating. I was expecting a gain so I'm not too stressed about it but definitely need to get back on the weight loss wagon.

    It has been a busy 2 weeks for me so I haven’t had much time to post. I have also had less time for my workouts but still managed to get a few short ones in.

    PW- 193.5
    CW- 192.3

    I am only 1.3 away from my first goal of 191. I am now thinking that my goal of 180 by Thanksgiving just might be achievable 😊. I hope everyone has a great Sunday.

    today has not been good.
    I DID some yard work this morning. it was humid so I worked up a sweat.

    But, had 3 slices of pizza and some alcohol.

    Low on water today, really low.

    deep breath and finish the evening strong

    Glad to see a 1 lb loss this week, I wasn’t sure. Not on my best behavior this weekend but all logged and ready for the week! Hope everyone has had a nice weekend.

    Congrats on those who lost weight this week. For those of us who didn’t, don’t sweat too hard about it. Just a minor bump in the road.

    I’ve been dreading about logging a gain, but once I do, I’ll feel better. Here is to a new day, the start of a new week, and a renewed commitment to being healthy and awesome!

    Very beautiful views you had from the boat. I am one of those who always gets sea sick 🤒 so I can’t enjoy being on the ocean in a boat. I love seeing the photos!! You must have burned quite a few calories sailing. 😊

    Glad you had fun!!
