Seriously....A Glazed Donut Sounds Good!

So here we are on Day 5 of the 2nd week and I am happy to say I have done quite well with the challenges/goals. I remembered to take my measurements and let's just say they are numbers I am not at all happy with; but there is no one to blame but myself. I got myself to those numbers and I will work at it and watch those numbers get smaller!!
Bob and I walked today. We found this trail on the hill behind our subdivision and let's just say I'm glad the posted rattlesnake warning signs did not cause us to go another direction. It was an amazing walk. The view from the top of trail (which is not the top of the hill) was beautiful! We will definitely be walking that much more often. It took us just over 30 minutes to walk it and having those inclines here and there certainly got my heart pumping a little more. I am thinking I will feel it a little in my legs tomorrow but hoping to walk the same area no matter what!
I was going to post what I have eaten today, but decided people don't care about reading that. However, I was still very good today and I am realizing I don't have to have a lot of the "sweet stuff" to survive. (At this point though I will admit if there was a glazed donut in the house, I would definitely eat it!) Glazed donuts are the one thing that I absolutely love which is why they are not in our house! I have 61 minutes to go to meet the 210 minute challenge and I will accomplish it. I am worried about the weather forecast for next week though....rain starting Sunday night with a break on Monday then rain through the week......we're expecting between 4 and 10 inches of rain! We need it so badly, so I will figure out how to get in the cardio. Walking just beats working out inside.
A very positive note to end with though is that Bob has been offered a job! We are so excited about the opportunity. As I learn more about the job I will post it, but for now we are truly grateful that we have been blessed so much especially over the past 9 months! Thanks for all the prayers in our behalf!

I was SO happy to hear about Bob's job offer. That is so awesome! And You, YOU are doing SO great! Woohoo! Steve has an interview at our normal gym time tomorrow, but I am going to hit the gym on my own anyway! Yippee! (oh, that is providing I can walk after today's workout with the trainer...Hahahah!)

I read this as I eat vanilla granola. Probably not a wise choice but better than the sherbet calling my name.

We're super excited for Pappy! I'm really proud of you Mom for doing so great with this challenge!
