    5/18 I weight lifted this morning. Walked 4.5 miles in the afternoon. Kettlebell workout in the evening. Carbs and calories were good!

    Decided to give my arms a break for probably the rest of the month due to impinged shoulders acting up. So instead I played a couple hours of xBox kinect games with my sister for today's exercise.

    The heat is something around here. We went from mid 60's over the weekend to 95 today. I have gotten outside for walks several times this week and will be hitting the gym after work. Hubby has been even more supportive lately and is considering joining the low carb way of life. He just doesn't want to have to count anything. Lazy LC isn't a bad thing, especially since I'll be doing the majority of the cooking.

    That's awesome!

    TMI alert, I apologize ahead of time. My TOM started yesterday, but I have no headache or cramps so far and that's pretty awesome. I am a little tired and the scale has stopped moving for the moment but that isn't bothering me. I still got in a good walk last night at the gym and stuck to my plan at dinner afterward. I went over on my protein yesterday but today I am not terribly hungry so I think that'll balance out. All in all, a minimal blip on my radar in comparison to other months.

    Things have been okay! I have 25 minutes left for this week to get in for cardio, and given my work schedule tomorrow, it's going to be an actual effort to get into the gym, haha. But I've hit my 150 minutes the last two weeks, and I won't ruin my streak now!

    Did quite a bit of moving boxes of merchandise at work today. So much for giving my arms a break.

    Looks like we all had a good week overall. I really enjoy seeing everyone's success stories.
    I went out last night to an Elk's club dinner and the meal was a beautiful roast beef with green beans and of course mashed potatoes with gravy and a roll. The kitchen staff was bringing them out pre-plated but I was able to ask them to bring me out just the beef and green beans with no gravy. I grabbed a pat of butter for the beans and enjoyed a little salad on the side. It was perfect and I felt great that I wasn't wasting what I knew I wasn't going to eat anyway. We were out seeing a local band later in the evening and my hubby and girlfriend ordered nachos because they were hungry again and I just picked a bit of cheese and jalapenos off the edges. I wasn't hungry but I just like cheese and hot peppers :smiley:
