I reached my 1st goal of 10 lbs!!! I know that 10 pounds might not sound like a lot to some people but I am menopausal and have been struggling with losing weight for over 5 years now and losing these first 10 pounds is a true triumph!

I had 5 major losses in my life over the course of 2 years (starting back in 2014) and I ate my way through all the loss and put on 30 lbs. Enter full-on menopause..... and losing any weight became nearly impossible or so I thought. I know, now, menopause is not an excuse. I do have to work harder and be diligent about food choices and calorie intake but it can be done!

Thank you Biggest Loser Challenge! Bella

It's 55 but started out in the lower 50's this morning and rainy. Fit quote for today: Strength is not gained overnight; it is cultivated over time.--David Shaw Motivational quote for today: Who and what you are will be determined by you, not by your circumstances. Almost all green yesterday just missed miles and active minutes but achieved my steps per hour goal and had 14,880 steps. Got in a great Chest/Shoulders and 10 min row today. Might have gone all green on my Versa if I didn't have the headache yesterday and slept on and off all afternoon.

I went to exercise class this morning consisting of mostly cardio, strength and a little stretching. Gina always does some of everything somehow. Then I got some walking in before lunch with Donna and great granddaughters. Then I visited Ann, helping her with her SP page. What a fun time. After coming home and sparking myself, fed Rascal and myself,then sewed some.

Trust God, believe in yourself, and keep looking forward. You can't change the past. You are always special.

Bella - your day and meal sound heavenly.

It was gorgeous here today also. Marv and I got in a nice walk. Then I finished and mailed three cards I created and worked on my Pot People project. I also cleaned the hall carpet.

I "cooked" two salmon cakes on my Foreman grill (love that little thing!) and had a beautiful salad tonight for dinner. What a nice change! Then DH and I sat outside on the front porch, drinking our decaf coffee and watched the Amish begin to plow the fields. LOVE this time of year. It's been a gorgeous day; I even got outside at the office today for a short walk in the sunshine.

Got home from work and planted 2 rosemary plants and took care of some more weeding. Plans are to do lots of planting this weekend and put down the weed block in the beds. Next weekend we go camping and then the week/weekend after that we put down the mulch.

AAAAH, spring! Blessings all, Bella

You are playing yourself, your own highest standards, and when you reach your limits, that is real joy.--Arthur Ashe Motivational quote for today: Never underestimate the power of an unlimited being you. All green yesterday as I removed floors from my Versa dashboard since it's inaccurate anyways. I can get 5 floors on a very windy day here and it's windy a lot in the Spring. Unsure of today's workout plan yet since the bug lady is coming tomorrow so have to do tons of laundry and put stuff away. Achieved my steps per hour goal and had 15,461 steps yesterday. Versa battery is at 55% so will charge it for an hour or so now.

We have had a little shower this afternoon but looking for heavy rain tomorrow. I know it was pretty warm outside today as the AC has started running this evening.

Trust God, believe in yourself, and keep looking forward. You can't change the past. You are always special.

It's 52 feels like 46 and chances of rain tonight. Started out in the upper 40's this morning. Fit quote for today: Perseverance is failing nineteen times and succeeding the twentieth.--Julie Andrews Motivational quote for today: If you aim at nothing you will hit it every time.--Zig Ziglar Almost all green yesterday just missed floors but achieved my steps per hour goal and had 19,338 steps. Plan right now is to get into the gym all 5 days but plans can change for this week being holy week.
