Friday Weigh-In Post....on Saturday

Last Weeks Weight 180.0
Today's Weight  179.5
Total Loss:  -.5lbs

NSV:  Goodbye 180's forever!  Mr. Scale bounced back and forth between 179.0, 179.5 & 180 all week, very frustrating.  I don't count a new number on the scale unless it is reflected twice in a row.  That finally happened.  It was only 1/2 lb but I am clearly in the 170's now!  I am just 3 pounds away from my 1/2 way exciting and exasperating at the same time because Mr. Scale is moving at a snails pace right now.
Fitness:  I met all my fitness goals for this week.  This week I was able to walk each day due to unbelievably gorgeous weather.  There has been just a hint of cool air in the mornings with low humidity.  I was able to swim each day except Wednesday when the pool was closed.  I also got to the gym 2X for strength training.
Nutrition:  I am getting protein in at each meal without a problem.  I fell low in veggies this week mostly because I did not include them with breakfast,  Most mornings breakfast consists of a veggie omelet with farm eggs, organic cheese from our local dairy and lots of veggies from the farmers market.  This week I ran out of veggies mid-week.  I am trying to eat one fruit each day as well, this week that was mainly blackberries that we picked.
Hydration:  I would like to increase my water intake to 10 cups beginning today.

Last Week:   I would describe myself  last week as PARTICIPANT instead of OBSERVER.   I went horseback riding for an hour with the grandkids.  I haven't been riding in 20+ years, I was slightly sore the next day.  Later that same evening I swam with the grandkids for another hour.  I participated instead of watching them ride or swim.  I really enjoyed being part of the fun instead of hiding behind the family photographer role.

My Upcoming Week:  This weather should cooperate this coming week.  We will be going on a short vacay at a casino hotel Wednesday and Thursday.   Our plans include walks along a bridge and swimming in the hotel pool.  I will get in a workout at the Gym on Monday & Wednesday before we go so there will be nothing to keep me from my Strength Training goal.
