Okay, so I weighed myself this morning and am 207.6 pounds. That means I reached my goal that I set. After two weeks of no progress, this was a nice change. Now I am going to try to reach 200 next week. I’m pumped!

But, Kristen, that’s 7.6 pounds in one week! Yes, I know. Here’s the thing. I haven’t been exercising. I will walk, and find activities to walk, but not actually exercise. So, I am going to actually start P90X again. I will concentrate on the weight loss cardio program they have set.

In other good news, usually my resting heart rate is around 90 bpm. Yesterday, it was 80 bpm. 19 pounds definitely takes off some stress from my heart! However, I went to the doctor a few months ago about chest pains. I didn’t think a whole lot about it, but I finally followed up with them this week. There is an abnormality on my ekg. I don’t know if it’s anything to worry about, but appreciate prayers.

My favorite meal this week was Ranch Baked Pork Chops. Yummy! Really simple to make. Take the pork chops and any veggies you like. Place in a single layer on aluminum foil covered pan. Drizzle olive oil, sprinkle ranch dressing packet, garlic, salt, and pepper over the pork chop and veggies. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20ish minutes and then broil for 2 more minutes.

Super yummy! Be sure to check out Deanna’s progress on her page! Thanks for reading!
