Pretty is as pretty does.

I would rather have 30 minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special.

Now that I am officially over the hill, I decided that at least I don't have to look the part, so here I am, trying to show my bad habits some positive alternatives. Looking forward to this next chapter of my so called life.

My Goals:
When I started this journey I weighed 140 and so far I have lost 10 pounds. I would like to wear a size 6/7 by summer and stay there. Currently, I fluctuate between an 8/10. I'm short, barely 5ft. 2", so although a 10 may look fabulous on a tall person I look dumpy in it. Looking forward to rewarding myself with a mega shopping spree. Sometimes, I'll buy clothes because I have to but I don't enjoy clothes shopping anymore because I buy clothes that conceal my middle rather than clothes because I like them. Does that make sense? I want to buy an article of clothing that shows I have a waist line. That will be a victorious moment for me.

My Program:
I have a good friend who is a personal trainer, she is working with me and a group of friends during the week. I am a member of a gym near our home because it is where my husband wants to workout, but I don't like it. I use two items, a treadmill and the bike. The gym doesn't offer classes, if it did I would sign up for yoga or weight lifting. It wouldn't kill me to take aerobics except that I hate all that jumping around. I may buy some workout tapes but am not sure if I would honestly use them. I have a hard time getting motivated at home because I can always think of something else I could be doing instead. Also cutting back on what I eat, drinking lots of water, switched to splenda instead of sugar, fat free creamer, diet soda instead of regular, hoping all the small changes turn into big ones.

Personal Information:
I'm a Texan at heart but hang my hat elsewhere. I love the philosophy, Keep Austin Weird. I prefer a hole in the wall or a mom and pop place to a franchise anyday. I have lots of friends, all shapes, sizes. religions, ethnicity and prefer it that way, but my personal belief is that Jesus is a cool radical and I try to be kind to all and nonjudgemetal. If there is such thing as a conservative liberal that would be me. Makes my world spicy which is good because I love to cook. My favorite sport is special olympics because my son is an amazing athlete and he is so darn cute to watch. I also love the theater because my daughter is a thespian of the arts. I am like any other mother in the world. I think my kids are the smartest, cutest, most wonderful kids ever. I have become a pro photographer since they were born. I can't take enough pictures because I think everything they do is absolutely brilliant.

Other Information:
I have never met a coffee house or a bookstore I didn't like. I attend bookclub faithfully and have a few novels in my head that I wouldn't mind putting on paper someday. Other than that, I'm just your average girl next door. I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family and enjoying the simple things in life.

Your message on my blog speaks to my worst fear. I do not want to leave issues until they linger unresolved, too late to fix or deal with them. I appreciate your words because they come from experience. Admittedly I worry that in telling my father how I feel he will just anger me more. We used to play a little game where I would tell him my feelings and he would tell me that is not how I feel. I am afraid that if I do tell him what is going on inside that he will shut me down one more time. I'm not sure if I could take that again, but because of your words I may try. Maybe.

Thanks.
