Blog neglect

I'm bad...I here and now recommit to blogging every weekend or weigh in day to share the week and any challenges I've faced. For now though, I'll settle for catching up.
Jan 16th weigh in found me at 202.4 lbs, a loss of 1.8
Jan 23rd weighed me in at 200.6 lbs another loss of 1.8 lbs.

I did have a very happy morning...I put on my Eddie Bauer Dress this I bought the last time I took the weight loss trek...and it FIT!!! I did a happy dance and wore that sucker to work! I have lost the weight before, I can't wait for the part where I learn to maintain the loss this time. :D

Yay, weight is coming off still even though it's cold, dark and now wet in the evening and I'm being a lazy BUTT.
I am looking forward to February and longer periods of daylight, so that I can get out and move this body and build up some muscle tissue and begin to reshape my body.
I don't have room to do most aerobic workouts, (on video), or much of anything else in this little space and I like exercising OUTDOORS. I live in Santa BARBARA for criminy sakes!!!
Ok, so yeah, I'm being a lazy butt. I know it's bad. I want a bicycle but have no where to keep it, I think I'll start renting one on the weekend, for at least one day and ride around for a few hours. I did do some sort of exercising tonight when I got home. I danced and then I did some leg lifts for a while. The latter being prompted by a comment from Jef this morning...something about my ass and it's absence. :(

The hardest thing for me to do on this new living plan is MOVE. I move some, I do walk but not for exercise...though any movement counts... I don't like Gyms and currently I'm arguing with one about why I DON'T owe them any money.
I've thought of Curves, they're right by my work, but I don't want to pay to exercise when I have all I need here to do it FOR FREE. All I need EXCEPT daylight and nice weather.
I'm so bad about moving, I'm not even doing my physical therapy stretching. Which is really odd, because I am usually a MODEL patient.

I don't know where all this resistance is coming from. I think I shall let that percolate for a bit, because it's obviously resistance...and I've exercised in the past and I really do enjoy it. More next time...hopefully I'll have an epiphany to share.

Have a great week and stay dry!
