Buh-Bye 300-ville

IMG_0905Image by seanwolter via Flickr turns out I am horrible at creating regular blog posts. Life somehow gets the best of me and man does time go by fast!

The good news is that I have officially left the 300's and that feels so great! Here's what I have been up to over the last couple of months.

*Work has been non-stop craziness! Staff changes, deadlines, additional responsibilities....all have added to my stress level and have really forced me to practice healthy habits to compensate. Drinking more water, increasing exercise and trying to get at least 7 hours of sleep have really helped.

*Dealing with my grandmother's illness has been tough. My grandmother is fighting lung cancer and the whole family has been really upset and struggling with the news. She is doing pretty well despite that chemo/radiation is really tough on her. She inspires me on a regular basis!

*Discovered Leslie Sansone's Walk-at-Home series and really love it! I ordered several DVD's from Amazon so I have a great selection. I'm doing these on the mornings twice a week when I work from home.

*Taking our dog for evening walks. With the spring weather being so nice, we have been walking the neighborhood almost every evening. This has really helped the pain I was feeling in my hips. I noticed tonight that I wasn't feeling any pain and haven't for a couple of days.

*Focusing more on my spiritual life. Nothing like a family crisis to make you get on your knees more. I have been spending more time in prayer and that is always good.

I'm just trying to make healthy choices as often as possible. I can't wait to see the scale keep moving down. My current goal is to lose 12 lbs with a target date of May 10th.
