Weigh-in Wednesday: SDoS wk 5

Sisterhood of the Shrinking JeansDown 0.4.

I really thought it'd be more since I was considerably lower on the weekend and have controlled myself quite well again. (Only small snacks and only on two evenings!!) I guess the loss earlier was probably due to a slight, medication-induced loss of appetite. It's apparently hard on the digestive system, but fortunately I was given what seems to have been very good advice and the side-effects have been kept to a minimum. I haven't noticed anything since Saturday.

And exercise has been virtually non-existent in recent weeks because of all the rain and the pneumonia, but I mowed lawn for an hour on Monday afternoon ~ without coughing a single time!! I have a couple more hours of mowing to look forward to yet this week, providing we don't get much rain, so this week, I could get some good miles in if the forecast is wrong! My lungs seem clear enough to handle the sudden surge of physical activity, so I've got no excuse now. (well, except for the constant downpours, of course...)

My in-laws are coming out tomorrow night and staying till Sunday afternoon, so controlling how much I eat and WHAT I eat will be a little more challenging, but I think I can handle it.

its certainly hard to stay focused when your normal groove is interrupted, but like Christie said, you're in control of the food choices - you've totally got this.

Tammi--don't ever say mowing lawn doesn't count as exercise! According to my calorie tracker, mowing lawn with a push mower burns between 300-500 calories an hour. So there. It's exercise.

I am glad to hear you are feeling better and can get back to your regular routines.

It's important you take care of yourself while you're sick so IT'S OK to not workout as much! You'll make it up!!

Keep up the good work, Tammi! You're doing a great job considering all you've had to deal with. I'm proud of you!!!

I'm on mowing duty this week, too. Push mowing a lot of land is great for you :)

Mowing the lawn totally counts! (I mean it counts for me, so it should count for you!)
