Step By Step

After a little time off and a few changes on the home front, I'm feeling so much more refreshed and ready to start working on this weight loss thing again.

Last night I took step one in that direction.  Hmmm, is this step one AGAIN?  Perhaps, but personally I don't believe failure is messing up and having to start again .... for me it's failing to restart.  So, when I got home yesterday I immediately suited up, grabbed the dog, and headed out for a brisk walk. 

We're having typical April showers here these days.  If you get a window of sunshine between the showers, you need to take advantage of it.  And I did!  45 minutes of glorious sunshine and fresh air.

Eating was pretty decent too.  Started dinner off with a massive salad.  Definitely have been lacking on fresh veggies lately.  Yum YUM!

Of course, the scale showed a 2 lb gain from yesterday to today ... that's always nice.  But I'm not worrying about that.  My focus right now is on eating healthier and moving more frequently.  The rest will fall into place with consistancy.

Keep at it, Heidi! It's the restarting that counts, no matter how many times we have to do it.

welcome back my friend, I have missed you!

Just keep stepping and you'll get there. You are totally right to say that its when you stop altogether - and don't get back up - that you stop making progress. You are an inspiration.

You two are TOO cute. Makes me sick ;o)

Been missing you friend! Glad you're back!

Still keeping things in perspective, I see. You've got this, Heidi! You can bet I'm still following your posts just haven't had as much time to post comments. Keep it up, doll!

It happens to the best of us. What you haven't been doing isn't as important as what you are doing now.

Yes, it will fall into place. And just keeping trucking forward! :)

I have no doubt that one step will lead to another. You've done it before and you will do it again.

I'm working on weight loss again too starting next week. Funny is that I just read an article that says you will be running 1.5 seconds faster per pound lost. If that's true I don't know but it is a great reminder for me to work on weight loss.

Good luck, you have my support as always.

So glad I could comment today and get into your blog without that stupid warning...

We all need time off...and then we get back on the wagon and feel inspired to get going again...
You will never give up on this journey, I know it!!

Using the scale as a way to measure progress is ok....but being happy and healthy is much more important!

You're keeping at it, and not giving up, that's what counts!!!
