I really did not have that much weight to lose to start with and I have not lost all I wanted, but I think my main focus has to be exercising regularly and staying fit.
I would like very much to tone the body so I could show off my muscles a bit more, and that is what I will try to do in stead of focusing on the weight loss.
Must say I am ok with my body and myself at the moment but if the weight drops some kg,s more I would not complain.
Think I had an epiphany today at the store;
We had been walking for a couple of hours and went in to get some stuff on the way home. I was not tired at all and when I picked up the 6pack of 1liter milk cartons = 6 kg (12 something pounds) I felt like I could have carried another pack as well. Carried it for maybe 1/2 hour and did not get tired or had to switch arms. WOW! On the way home I even used it as a weight and did some shoulder lifts to see how long I could on doing it. ALL THE WAY!
I am not telling this to brag, just wanted to write down the fantastic progress I have made while here on SP. Some months ago I would not have been able to carry this with the same hand for many minutes.
So even if the scale still does not totally agree with me - I have changed.
Of course I am not leaving SP! I just change directions or focus.
Now I will put up other goals like running faster and longer, and concentrate on the fitness and health, all with the help of SP.
COULD NOT HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU ALL!
I promised myself that I should make more fish in stead of the chicken that is all over our weekly menu.
And I have. The electricity is very expensive here in Spain so we use the gas barbecue on the terrass as oven.
I have baked both salmon and white fish with vegetables in it this week and wow! I do like fish more than I thought I did!
This will make healthy eating more interesting - and easy.
I gave in and cut my hair even though I have not reach my goal, and I feel great!
Troll gone! Bye, bye Björn Borg!
After leaving the salon yesterday we bumped into some friends who asked us home with them. I was quite tired and wanted take the beach promenade back to where we had parked the car and go home for a nice, quiet evening.
But as I did not want to say no to our friends we went with them - and had an fantastic night together in front of their huge fireplace with a lot of music. Live and recorded.
Me and hubby have always made music and singed a lot together during the years.
I played the cello and flute in an orchestra (no. not at the same time ) and he has even recorded some of his own stuff. Somehow this part of our lives sneaked out without us noticing very much. Last night though I was reminded of how much I enjoy music and how it enriches life.
Think I will make it one of my goals to play the instruments we got more often. We have borrowed an electric guitar and I would love to be able to play a cool solo.
That should have me concentrating on other things than weight and food...
Think I will cut out the ticker from my page!!!
It is not the first time I have this discussion with myself and now I am taking it public.
When I first made my page I had a bit of a trouble making my mind up about putting the ticker there. Then I thought "Why not? It can be an encouragement seeing it move".
AND I GUESS IT WOULD BE! BUT IT DOES NOT!
I tend to look at other persons tickers and they tick (some have even met there goals!) while mine seems to be stuck.
As you all know, me and the scale are not the best of friends and I avoid it as much as I possibly can, and as long as I do not want to weigh myself - why do I have the ticker on the page?
On the other hand it is a way to measure your journey. But I am afraid of looking out the train window; What if I have not even left the station?
Hmm, I will leave it be for the moment. If it is gone one day you know why!
