Holding steady....

I maintained this week, and honestly, I'm pretty happy with that. This was a weird week. I was actually hungry at times. That almost never happens. Like my friend Rose said, it was just ravenous this week with her. A couple of nights this week, it was that I just couldn't seem to get enough.

And I don't get it. I ate filling foods. I ate good portions -- not too little, not too much. But it just didn't seem to be enough. So I dipped into the flex points for the week, and it wasn't a total disaster.

I also discovered that 40 minutes of "Sweatin' to the Oldies" gets me the same activity points as my usual walk of Maddox. And yet it just didn't seem like enough. I know, weird. I hadn't actually used that video in a few years, but the moves came back fairly quickly. Amazing. It was fun to do. The only thing I didn't like were the pauses in between songs. So I kept marching in place. I wanted to keep going. Matter of fact, he could have tacked on another 20 minutes and I would have been okay.

Ha. Imagine that. If you'd told me three years ago that I would enjoy and want to do exercise, I'd have laughed and laughed and laughed my butt off. BWAAH! I do look forward to getting out and doing stuff. I would never have thought that!
