Day 9 on Holiday Weight Loss Challenge

Part of the You Can Learn Good Health series.

Back to the normal daily routine. Sometimes it is easier to lose weight during the week than it is on the weekend. We have the SuperBowl coming up, which in my family is just a food fest. So let's get ahead of the curve and lose some weight so we are still ahead after the victory celebration.

An interesting walk today, as I was photographing grasses sitting in 4 to 8 inches of snow. It is amazing how grasses hold up to the frigid Chicago winters and especially how well they handled the blast of snow, ice and wind. One bad thing happened. As I was getting my photos, I stepped on a metal rod in the snow, that penetrated my boot and poked through my foot.
Breakfast started with one egg scrambled, 2 servings of Instant Grits with butter and 6 ounces of milk. We were out of orange juice so I substituted water. Lunch was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, some potato chips and a candy bar. Supper was 3 small leftover slices of pizza and water. I probably did okay for the day.

Shaping up to be an interesting week, with lots of stress and decisions to be made. Could be exciting. I need to stay focused and committed to my goal of 8 pounds and I need to get back to weightlifting. It was great to see the sunshine today, which in Mid January there never seems to be enough to go around.

I am confident you are doing better than I am, keep up the great diet fight and continue to lose that quarter pound a day. It is like a little creek. You never think you are losing any weight, but if you lose just a little a day, before you know it, 4 weeks have passed and you have lost 10 pounds.

Stay positive and go work out, with small weights, cans from the pantry, a walk with the dog or just walk in place while you watch tv. Today is the day to start something.
