Its FRIDAY!

I am really looking forward to having a 3 day weekend.  It has been a long week, unannounced inspections at work, a doctors appointment that did not go too well, and just general exhaustion.  Before anyone worries about my doctor appointment I am fine.  The doctor is just really worried about my steady weight gain in the last 3 years.  Funny thing is I was pretty stable before the adoption process started, coincidence?  I don't think so.  Anyway, she wants me to try and lose weight and come back in a couple of months. So I guess I am on a diet.

I want to loose weight for me, too, this is the heaviest I have ever been and I don't like it.  So despite my leg pain (which sucks btw) I walked yesterday and the day before and plan on trying to make it a habit.   I wish we had an indoor pool around, that is the easiest exercise for me.  The nearest pool is in Yakima and I probably won't go by myself.  But if you are local and want to head to Lyons with me a couple evenings a week for water walking, let me know.

We have also started looking up some low calorie recipes to try.  I don't think our eating habits are all that bad but a combination of a few things makes it easy for me to pack on the pounds.  Tonight is Caribbean chicken I started it marinating last night.  Last night Jim made a beef with snow peas stir fry and stir fried asparagus, it was yummy.  I still went to bed hungry,  but I will get used to it, I hope.  

This weekend we are hoping to be able to work in the yard.  With all the rain we have been having it might be a challenge.  We want to put in a sidewalk and dig out another area for a garden.  If we can't work outside we have plenty of inside projects to work on as well.  So it should be productive and a little relaxing.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  Do you have any plans for the 3 day weekend?

Losing weight is tough, but I think a lot of little things help. I was having a lot of bloating and discomfort and I cut out sugary drinks. It's helped a bunch. Walking is awesome and it's something you can do anytime & anywhere!

We are camping this weekend. Hopeful that the WiFi that the campground advertises works!!

I know everyone has a suggestion for weight loss but something is working for me is a website called sparkpeople.com. It has a nutrition and fitness tracker that helps you plan meals and stuff. Just something to look into if you are interested. :) Good luck!
