Good morning to all. It has been so hectic here and Rascal woke me up at 4 am. My husband and I both lost weight so shopping for my birthday dinner for something new to wear took up our week. He lost 16 lbs and I have lost 30, (20 since I started this). It has been a long haul but worth the wait. I am going to lose at least 30 more in 2014.
My plan was to avoid buying clothes, except work out and yoga clothes, but that has become inconvenient. I needed to shop, and I bought a fabulous wrap dress that is very retro and a little sexy. I feel great but I am not yet where I need to be. So much more hard work to be done, but I am trying not to beat myself up with thoughts of not being thin enough. That damn devil on my shoulder has reappeared just in time for my birthday tomorrow, and making me feel a little less than I should be. I need to own where I am now, and enjoy my Birthday and this journey.
I have decided to switch my weigh in back to Tuesdays. I do not like to weigh in before the weekend, it seems when I weigh in early in the week it starts my week off to a great start. I know I ate more salt than usual the last week, and I am splurging on Christmas a little. I bought some amazing cookies and I plan to indulge in them.
Tomorrow morning I am going to attend Richard Simmons holiday class, it should be a healthy and fun way to kick my birthday in. The toy drive is in full swing, and this weekend I am buying my toys for Alexandria House. We are delivering them on Monday.
Off for now, more of the same hectic energy today after work. Wishing you a sun filled day on the second shortest day of the year.
Good Morning to all. We are a little under the weather here, so I am just trying to get through it and feel better by my big weekend. I have been shopping both for my Birthday outfit, and for my husband since he lost a few pounds as well and works later than I do. It has been a project, shopping for a man. I just need accessories for myself, I found some killer heals to go with my dress, these should put my 5’2 frame at 5’8. They are that high, I hope I can walk.
Just a quick post, this cold has got the best of me and I do not have much energy, but I have been using the Neti Pot and I seem to be getting better at a quicker pace than my husband who refuses to use it. I believe it truly works, and I can say I can breathe this morning.
Wishing you a beautiful day. My toy drive is in full swing and we deliver the toys on Monday. Christmas just comes and goes too quickly, I will be happy when I can return to my normal routine and lose this 30-40 pounds once the new year arrives. I got a hair trim the other day, and I had not been in the salon in months and the staff went on and on about my weight loss, that made my week.
Good Morning to all. Looks like I am taking a day to rest from work. I have a head cold and it seems like the little bugger got the best of me, so I feel better to rest today so I am not down for the count for my Birthday and Christmas.
Speaking of my upcoming Birthday. We are going to Musso and Frank’s, a bucket list must and I am so excited. I am not only celebrating my late December birthday on the 21st but my 20 pound weight loss since I began this journey, ( 30 pounds since January). I am also celebrating the fact that I am following up on all of my plans as I go into the New Year. I am content to say I did not give up, and as I make my new New Year’s resolutions I will be so inspired and motivated. I am so happy I am taking on this project with more to come in 2014. I am so grateful that I have met so many amazing people who have touched my heart. All of this in six months.
A birthday dinner means a new dress, and I found one I love in a size medium. I just need to accessorize it with shoes etc and I am good to go.I had planned to only shop when I got to my final weight, but when nothing fits except your workout clothes shopping is a must. It is a lot more fun when you are losing weight.
I may be under the weather, but my spirits are so high. The toy drive is in full swing, and I will be shopping for my toys this weekend. I need to write out some Christmas cards, so since I will be resting today I have the perfect opportunity to do so, and maybe some reading too.
Wishing you a beautiful day.
