Another year and just a little better...I hope

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

Today at 6:59am I turned the ripe old age of 38. Boy, where has the time gone? If feels like I was 20 only a few years a ago. All in all today was a wonderful day. Since I was 20 years old I've always done three things on this day if it falls on a weekday...I take the day off work, go shopping and have some ridiculously fattening - yet fabulous dinner. Shopping would include clothes or shoes or maybe a nice purse. Today I made a change. no shopping no big dinner. I went to the gym instead and spent extra time there than I normally would. I guess I've finally grown up.



This was from my hubby as a surprise.

Took Another Step

Monday, November 04, 2013

This isn't really a blog post but an announcement. Today I registered for a Thanksgiving Day event at my gym. It's called the Turkey Stomp & Gravy Splash. It's starts at 8am rain or shine. Normally the gym is closed but for two hours, those that sign up get to be put through the paces before you sit down to stuff your face with turkey. This is my first time. I'm nervous and excited. Each participant gets a t-shirt with registration.

An Extra Hour

Sunday, November 03, 2013

My body is on fire. With every move I feel what I was able to do the past few days. Not a complaint but today will be my rest day. I wasn't planning on it but you have to know your limits; even though my brain is saying keep goin, your on a roll but my thighs are screaming sit you butt down. emoticon So today, I'm going to enjoy my extra hour (thanks time change) spend some time in my craft room and relax.

Punishment or fun???

Saturday, November 02, 2013

Today I realized that I am a glutton for punishment. I say this because this was the second day in a row that I've tried to do a burpee. I believe the burpee was invented by someone that is obviously a sadist and therefore wants to see folks panting, out of breath and muscles in pain. I've managed to do 2 each day but my body is on fire. I plan on trying 2 more tomorrow too. See...a glutton for punishment.

    I'm not eager enough to try burpees in life yet, I'm afraid for my knees :)~ Keep trying if you have a mind to and you'll get there with effort and persistence~ emoticon

    Nothing is over until you stop trying!

That is something that I've learned this time, no matter what, never give up!

    Look up EFT Tapping on YouTube on Robert Smith's channel Healing Magic

He teaches the technique to help with weight loss and I really love what he does. It is all about learning to control our emotions.
