But I am tired of my life style change. There I said it. I’m tired of being good, watching everything I eat, working out all the time, walking, tennis, swimming. I’m tired of counting calories, watching my time on exercise, logging everything on the computer.
Is this ever just going to be come second nature? EVER???'
What I’m not tired of is putting on clothes or sizes I haven’t worn in over 18 years. I’m not tired of standing on the scale and seeing 25 lbs gone. I’m not tired of being able to walk 4 miles and only be tired not dead. I’m not tired of feeling my legs and finding muscles. I’m not tired of looking down and seeing boobs and no tummy.
That means being good, watching everything I eat, working out as much as possible. Walking, tennis, swimming. It means logging all the foods I eat, the exercise I do. It means continuing with my new life style until it becomes second nature. It has to right? RIGHT!!!
I know this week I’m not being the greatest on the exercise first because of family stuff, very late daycare, shopping with my mama and a birthday party. But I am eating lots of fruits and veggies and staying away from the candy and starches. Then next week I will be gone all week for Venture Crew Scout Camp (YEAH!!!) but there I will be working every day but with big kids, lots of walking and even climbing. I am not preparing any of my own meals there so will just be careful not to over eat with what they offer.
So I will start again with all that I know I need to learn and do on the 9th of August and that will also mean my weigh in and measuring.
I am making so many mistakes with this life style change but it’s a learning experience and it took me a very long time to get to where I am now so I’ll just keep learning, making mistakes and seeing what can happen in life. 25 lbs, over 45” of fat in 9 months, well that’s something. Just think what I can do with the rest of my life. I bet I can be more healthy, more fit, more shapely then ever in my life (well maybe not as a teen living and working on the farm).
Thank you all for all your words of support, your thoughts and ideas, your help in all that has gotten me this far. I guess I am excited to see what is possible with your help. Thank you!!!
Now take care and if you don’t hear from me before the 9th remember I’ll be back to share my ups and downs, my opps and learnings, my thoughts and feelings.
Have a great, fantastic, wonderful, productive, blessed couple of weeks. God Bless you all!!!
Oh by the way, Mike hooked up the Wii last night, I haven’t gotten to try it out yet but it sure does look cool and exciting. I have to look into netflix and see if they rent out Wii games. I think one of you suggested that to me, sorry can’t remember who.
