First Week – 113

The first week of my project 121 has gone by and I’ve noticed a few things.

When you count down to something specific you:

  • tend to notice that time moves quickly
  • become excited by the approaching event
  • become anxious about the work you still need to do before you can go
  • aware that you haven’t listened to the language cd’s in awhile
  • motivated to do the things you haven’t

This past week I worked on swapping out some food choices and cutting down a bit on portions. I didn’t deny myself anything, really, and in fact I went to the Cheesecake Factory and had some peanut butter cup cheesecake. I split it with Hubby, had about 4 bites and felt satisfied. I never want my project’s focus to be on denial, but on reasonable choices instead.

I also logged 10.4 miles for walking, used my hand weights at home for some upper body toning and did some static leg exercises , AND – yesterday I wen to the gym and stepped up my upper body training. Now I’ve recruited #4 to go to the gym with me to teach me some of the lower body and midsection machines/floor exercises, that I need.

This weeks results………..drum roll please…………..

4 inches lost – mostly off belly and butt

3.2 lbs down

antsy if I don’t move by 2 pm


I’m happy with these results and am confident that  I’ll be skittering up the Spanish Steps with the best of them.


I believe you make your own reality whether good or bad. Thus, my favorite saying is, "Say what you mean and mean what you say."

Well, Sharon, if you wanna know what I think....
