w/o 3-17

I hope everyone had a Happy St. Patrick's Day and were able to stay on track with your own individual program.  I L-O-V-E corned beef and also Irish soda bread so this was especially challenging for me to be reasonable with the portion control!!!!  I did OK (went a bit over my calorie allotment for the day - actually for the weekend) but I figure some extra workout and walking will take care of it.  I tried to keep in the back of my mind that my progress so far has been kinda hard to get to so I didn't want to impede the process by knowingly indulging in too much of the "bad stuff".

I really felt the absence of Jess this week.  I have become so used to the routine of bootcamp that even just missing one day made a difference in how I felt this past week.  Back to it this week though, thank heavens!!  I now know that when this is over, I will definitely have a good schedule in place to continue with exercise and I am sure I will be able to maintain as I go forward.  And by then the improved eating habits should be well into place.  Therefore, I will have no excuse for not continuing a healthier and more active lifestyle down the road!!

I am so very thankful that I have taken this challenge*:) happy  I have been given a chance to change my health for the better and also along with that change comes a better attitude in general.  I feel so much more positive about other aspects of my life and I find that I can think clearer about different life events that come my way.  I am confident that when the big "60" day comes (very soon at that), I will feel nothing but renewed and ready to age in a healthier and more positive way.

Hope everyone has a wonderful, fulfilling week!!  Stay focused and be positive comrades!!
