This has been my motto this month! To be honest the last several months have been difficult financially. Once I had Kinsley last June I had to take 7 weeks off of work, unpaid. Since that time I've BARELY made all my bills on time BUT I made it! I didn't pay late fees, I didn't miss any payments and I made it! I always said that everything works out for the best, I always said I know that the money will be there but I don't think I ever really and truly believed it, until now. I'm never sure HOW the money will be there but it's always there but I'm sure it WILL be there. I'm now to where I'm SAVING money again and I'm so excited about that!! Anyway, it was a very tough past 8 months but it's now getting easier and easier and I'm so thankful for that. Now onto more important things, weight loss!
Sunday: walked 3 miles in 40:40 minutes and burned 599 calories
Monday: None, it was a crazy day and I had a lot of errands to run for my lunch hour.
Tuesday: Did the stairs for 14:09 minutes and burned 398 calories
Wednesday: Did the stairs for 15:00 minutes and burned 422 calories
Thursday: Did the stairs for 15:41 minutes and burned 441 calories
Friday: My goal is to do the stairs for 16:00 minutes!!
Saturday: My goal is to walk 3 miles with my family around the neighborhood
This week I've lost a total of 3 pounds which I'm very happy about!
This morning I weighed in at 267 pounds which is 20 pounds lighter than I was in October of last year.
My goal is to add just a few seconds to each day I do the stairs which makes a big difference over time. When I originally started running up and down the stairs I was only able to do 10 minutes and now I'm over 15 minutes. I'm hoping in another month or so to be up to 20 and then 25 and then eventually 30.
I, like Nicole and Shannon, have started with the shakes! I have a shake for breakfast and a shake for lunch with a very healthy dinner, throughout the day I snack on apples, grapes and bananas so I'm never hungry. My boss gave me a bag of "body by V" shake mix and it was awesome but it's expensive so when I was out of that mix I went to Rouses and got the Lean 1 shake mix and it's yummy!!!
As far as our biggest loser contest that we do here at work...

My goals for next week are:
1. Lose 2 more pounds.
2. Get up to 17:00 minutes on the stairs!!
3. Save $40 (for the week)
