Heading in the Right Direction

I'm feeling great! I have done morning yoga three days in a row. I really helps me start the day off right. I've done a different routine each time, and I still have some poses I want to try. Eventually, I'll have built a short 10-minute routine that hits all the stretches and areas of my body that I want. Then I'll pick some yoga music for it!

Yesterday I walked almost two miles with some short bursts of slow jogging. And I did it outside. Me outside is a pretty big deal. I don't like outside. But I did it!

I've eaten breakfast two days in a row. My plan was to have some steel cut oats, yogurt & honey, and a piece of fruit every morning. When I bought groceries, I couldn't find any regular steel cut oats. All I could find is the Quaker 3 Minute Steel Cut Oats. So I gave them a try. Big mistake. It's like oatmeal flavored cream of wheat. I don't understand how it can be marketed as steel cut. Rolled oats have more bulk than this crap. "Hearty texture" my ass.

I'm still eating them because I have them. With my next paycheck I will order some regular steel cut oats from Amazon.

I did my Tuesday weigh-in for the Holiday Scale Accountability Club. I'm down a little. I'm not down to where I need to be for the challenge, but it's going in the right direction. So that's good.

I'm really feeling good with where things are headed right now. I think I'm going to be able to make it through the winter. At least until it starts icing over, LOL.

  1. I love yoga too! I personally started my quest to get in seriously good shape/health a few weeks before turning 39, with the idea of giving myself the best 40th birthday present (I did!!!), which I hope you will also do for yourself too. :-)

    1. Thanks! One of the reasons I wan to lose weight is because my stomach gets in the way with some of my yoga poses.I'm 38, and I'm really hoping to get below 200 lbs by the time I'm 40.

  2. Way to go Connie! Sounds like you got a good groove going, have a great week!

  3. Great job, Connie! Sorry those quasi steel cut oats you bought suck. Keep up the great work!
