I weighed in today…finally the scale moved in the downward direction…I have lost 2#’s….yay…so doing something right….that was a long stretch…losing on vacation, in fact hitting one of my goals…then gaining, then loosing the weight a second time….then just keeping it at zero- gain or loss and now finally…I have lost another two that wasn’t part of that craziness….so I am down 52#’s and looking forward to a positive week ahead….
Was at the gym this morning at 9a for the water aerobic class, the teacher is a firecracker…no stopping and full bore with a few slow moments to catch your breath….I swam before and after so it was 90 minutes in the pool and let me tell you I was wrinkled like a prune…LOL then a hot steam and I was done…felt good…I am learning to give myself the permission to take my time, enjoy the moment and let it be okay that its all about me!! Strange feeling, as its always been about others, the kids, jobs, spouses, the housework, food shopping, paying the bills, it was never about me before, even after my kids were out on their own, there was always a list of priorities before me…so this is kind-a nice…I have the best husband in the world who supports me 100% no matter…life’s good!!!
Went out for lunch, my son called and wanted to meet up…that was nice…I was able to look the nutritional/calories before we met so that went well…It makes it easier if you can get a handle on the menus before you actually get to the restaurant. However, when its my husband and just me, I take my time and google the info sitting at the table if I need to….it has saved me from some bad food decisions. So I am at 1046cal, so I am sitting pretty….
Been getting up at 7a and enjoying the morning and getting to the gym early….so that’s new and actually fun, getting a good protein breakfast in before I go….I have finally completely stopped dwelling on the “why didn’t I do this years ago” saga that played over and over in my mind, so that is nice to have come to grips with….it is what it is…and right now its all good…..
