Working out

So after I began working from home babysitting I had gained weight back., and I was not happy with myself at all.   My weight loss journey started in 2002 and I had lost 73 pounds. I had gained about 15 back. So I had to make a few drastic changes.  And about 2 -3 months ago I joined our community center and go to the fitness room to work out. Usually I get 4 workouts sometimes 5 in a week.  Plus I have downloaded an app to watch how much I’m eating.   The good news is that at first I gained a little more weight before starting to lose.  And I started to go in panic mode wondering what on earth I was doing wrong. But after measuring I am losing in inches also.   That made me happy. And this morning?? How’s 3 pounds lost this week? Yay!!!
I wish I had a workout partner cause then your weight loss journey is a little easier, but it helps when I go the same time each day and the same people are working out, making it feel as if I do have workout partners and it sure helps me keep going!
And also I’ve been walking my dog one or twice a day as long as it’s not raining hard here.   I’m going to post a photo of when I first started working out in 2002.  I’m the one in the navy dress and then a photo of me recently.

Fruit flavored waters

Well. .. I’ve done fruit flavored water in the past but never in a mason jar which I read is healthier and you can taste the flavor better and there is no bpa. I tried it today with blueberries, BlackBerries, and a little lemon juice. Boy did it taste awesome! And that’s all I drank today was flavored water and I felt like I had more energy. Tonight I made grapefruit, blueberry, with a little ginger. I will see how well I like it. I’d way rather be drinking fruit flavored water than junk stuff. And I like water plain so much as long as it’s real cold but  putting the fruit in it just makes it so much better. Anything to help keep me healthy!!
Have a good night y’all !!
