Weight Loss Wednesday: Yay a pound!


Remember that dirt pile, you know the one I've been schlepping at for the past six months?  Well one of the neighbors finally complained, (bless their hearts they really have been patient to have waited this long), and we, knowing this has really gone on too long, promised to put our noses to the grind stone and move the rest of it into the back yard.  So on the hottest day of the year we moved dirt.  All day we moved dirt.  I cannot stress enough how much moving or how much heat/humidity (heat index 114F 69% humidity), we did that day, but I lost two pounds in one day.  So without further ado...

Shoveling dirt and hauling wheelbarrows full of dirt is quite adequate.  
Averaging 3 glasses a day.
Cutting back on the carbs and aiming for more veggies, (yuck).
July 31st, I just had to have angel food cake for Harry Potter's birthday.
I opted for salad instead of a hot pocket.  Hey, any small victory will do.

  1. Well done! Two pounds is a weight loss not to be ignored. Sometimes a "push" like this starts something big.

    I, on the other hand, did not do anything vaguely similar to exercise this weekend. Even the dog walks were slow and lazy. Mind you, the dog was slow and lazy, so it's all his fault...

  2. Don't you just love it when you can blame someone else? : D The best part is that the dog can't deny anything, ha. I can't stand to exercise so any dog walking, slow or lazy would be considered exercising on my part and it's better than having not done it at all. : )
