January Check In

Well - my first month of better health and shrinkage did not go quite as spectacularly as I might have hoped.  :-S

Due to my mishap last week, I show a net loss of 1 pound for January.  The details are on my Stats page.  I'm still sticking with my goal of 25-30 pounds by my birthday - we'll see how February goes before making any adjustments there.

However, there is some joy in Mudville.  I did lose .6 yesterday, which is better than nothing.  And, yesterday my blood pressure was 110/60.  Yay Me!!  I don't have a problem with blood pressure, but my mom did, and heart and stroke stuff runs in my family.  So that's part of why I've made this year Get Healthy or Go Home.

50 minutes on the treadmill this morning, and I re-read my WW books last night when I should have been sleeping :-D  I'm considering a week of Simply Filling (similar to the old CORE method).  Not this week, but perhaps the following.  We'll see.

I did get a Yoga DVD in three time this month, which is pretty good. 

I've had a month to settle in - and I can see now that traveling often tosses me off kilter.  Interestingly enough, my Cape trip was probably the longest trip I have scheduled. I'm sticking relatively close to home most of this year, and I think that's going to be a good thing - giving me time to concentrate on what's best for me.

February, I'm ready!
