I wanted to start off saying that my brothers ex-rays and head scans came back good, there was cancer showing only in his cheek. He's having surgery next Thursday to get it removed and we'll go from there. I was so relieved to hear this news, I know he isn't out of the woods yet but at least we know where we stand.
I stated on my last post that I was counting calories again and I did - for that one day, then I went back to just eating my 5 small meals a day. Its been going great too. I haven't weighed but I can tell in my body that im getting toned and leaning out.
I also started focusing on my power walking. I purchased 4 Leslie Sansone dvd's ( already have 4 of hers) to get motivated. I printed out a calender and started marking my walks on there and it's working!! I'm motivated!! I walked 6 days straight last week. I walk for 30 minutes and thats all the commitment I'm allowing myself right now. After working in the Deli and running around for 8 hours, a 30 minute power walk is perfect.
One of the dvd's I purchased was called Walk it off in 30 days, it has a 30 minute power walk and a 30 minute strength training session...its fabulous! I'm so glad I found another instructor to motivate me =)
Of course Cathe will always be my favorite but I had a hard time keeping up with her workouts at my weight, perhaps when I get a little lighter I will pick her dvd's back up.
I can't believe my kids are going back to school next week. There summer seems so short? There school clothes and supplies are bought and they're ready.
So as you all know I work in a Deli, November will be a year since I started in the department. I don't miss the Bakery at all - however I do get the itch to decorate cakes every now and then. I got Full-time June 15th so there for my raise won't be until 2015 June,15th. I think that sucks!! I'm going to ask my store manager for a raise in November...I deserve it! I'm still liking it...I really like my-coworkers, a lot nicer then the ones in the bakery.
ok. Thats my update. Oh, and I was thinking yesterday about the name of my blog. I know this is a weight loss blog but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of weight loss going, nor am I really focused on it anymore. I'm more focused on living a healthy lifestyle. So I may be changing the name soon. Perhaps something like "Amy's Lifestyle Change" . IDK
