RAD - Random Acts of Dancing

Friday, August 13, 2010

So I have 4 ladies that I know that were talking about losing weight (these ladies all had babies around or near the time I had my gorgeous daughter) and I started asking them if they had a RAD moment and if so what song it was to?

I remember as a kid we would have the radio on and a random song would come on and we would all start dancing.. i LOVED that as a kid and quite frankly we didn't have enough of those moments.. we get so caught up in our lives that we don't ever do the fun spontaneous things like take a moment to just get up and dance! And I don't know about any of you out there but a 3 1/2 minute song isn't a whole lot in the grand scheme of things.. BUT when you first start 3 1/2 minutes is a LONG time to be dancing around (especially if you are holding a 17 pound baby!!!) BUT the laughs that come out of that kid are totally worth it!! And the benefits for me are also completely worth it! 1 RAD moment becomes 2 and soon you'll be dancing for an hour straight just enjoying life!

So one of my goals in my weight loss journey is that someday someone who i've never met will use the term RAD moment! I never even want to know about it! but i hope that the one thing people take from my path is that in life and in weight loss it all starts with a RAD moment! You can't enjoy life or being healthy if you don't stop and enjoy life!

    I live in a little town in Northern New Mexico, and I work in a little gift shop here. The only radio station we can pick up is a Spanish language station.

I don't understand any of the lyrics, but oh! that beat! Whenever the shop is quiet, I find myself bopping around while I dust!

nontraditional goals

Thursday, August 12, 2010

I made a list of nontraditional goals (because obviously i want to be thin and rock a bikini! i mean really? who doesn't want that!) that i'm hoping to add to but so far this is what i've got:

I want to be able to saturate myself in a bathtub!!! a FULL soak!! I want to be in a regular sized bath tub and have the water cover every inch of my body! I want that hollywood bath where the water and bubbles cover my goods instead of my goods being a foot out of the water (that might be a little exaggeration but i'm sure some of you can picture exactly what i mean because you've been there!)

I want to be able to paint my thumb without regrets!!! The bigger i get the bigger my hands get and I already have this wierd thing about me where i think my thumbs look so fat when painted with nail polish.. and the only time i didn't feel that way was when it was ridiculously cold in the dead of winter and you know how your hands get that slightly shrivled "chilled to the bone" type of look? well at my lowest point in weight they did that and i swear my thumb looked normal size! and i want that back!!!

I want to take really cheesy family pictures where the whole family matches COMPLETELY .. i'm not talking a little match i'm talking the whole nine yards! (Jeff is gonna LOVE this lol!) but most places that sell matching kids/adult clothes don't have them in my size
(I also want to do normal family pictures as well)

i put this on my profile as well so i can see it everyday and remember some of the things i use to take for granted that i want back in my life!

    Okay you made me smile. One of my goals was to get a bubble bath and be completely covered in the water. I am more than half way there. You can do this. I have lost 83 pounds by taking one day at a time. I make very small weight loss goals and I feel a huge satisfaction when I get there. Then I set another goal. I started at 302...now 219...goal of 160. Be kind to yourself and you will succeed.

    I'm right with you. I want to ride in the roller coaster. I want to fly without the stewardess trying to make me buy a second seat. I want to eat out without feeling like other people are checking out what the fat chick is eating. I want to look down and see my feet, not my belly!

such a upsetting day!

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

My husband is deployed and was going to the bigger base to restock on his tolietries and things of that nature and while there he was gonna skype with me! It would have been the first time in a month and a half that i've gotten to see him or hear his voice! I was SOO looking forward to and i knew i shouldn't have been excited.. i should have known it was all gonna fall through and that the webcam would be broken and that the stupid mic wouldn't work.. but i threw caution to the wind and let myself get excited about it... and now to be honest i don't want to cook something for myself for dinner.. i'd rather just order chinese or pizza and throw on pjs and mope around my house crying but i know if i do that i'll only be more disappointed..

Ugh today just sucks and i want a redo with a better ending result!

Huge hugs, seriously! It must be hard to be away from each other for so long. But, still, think of this as an opportunity to further shock him when the camera DOES work next time. You've got some time to get a few more pounds off! Turn this negative into a positive and press the reset button. You can do it!

    Aw Kassie, I'm so sorry it didn't work out! I can imagine how awesome that would've been to see him. It's funny, the girls were asking about Uncle Jeff today and have already started bugging about when they're going to get to see him again, lol.

As for moping around the house, only you know if that's what you need to do today! Honestly, sometimes we need those days before we can feel better and move on. In any case, I wouldn't feel bad over it. Sh*t happens, and we can't always be expected to hold it together ALL the time.

I hope you feel better soon, and call me if you need to talk! I'm taking the girls to gymnastics at 3:30, but I'll be home all evening. I may not understand exactly what you're going through with Jeff gone, but I'm here if you need me.

  emoticon I am so sorry that things didn't work out for you today.
Take the night off - take a long bath and try to relax. It is alright to be upset but don't let this one day of upset keep you down.
Tomorrow is another day and hopefully things will work out so your hubby can Skype with you.

Take Care

Woahhh out of shape!!!

Saturday, August 07, 2010

So I FINALLY got my Wii game "Dance on Broadway" and it is AMAZING! I love it so much!!! But WOW am I out of shape in the arms department!!! Thats what always kills me is my arms!!! I don't feel like i worked out my legs all that much but i think thats mainly because I was concentrating on my arms not falling off!!!

And what REALLY amazes me is had this been 2 years ago I would have been able to do this with no problems!!! Heck i was a drama major so a few little flicks and kicks should be nothing for me!!! But nope!!! But atleast when I was doing it it was fun and it kept my interest!!! Now I just have to keep plugging away at it!!

I only did "all that jazz" twice.. so maybe 8 minutes of workout? so basically nothing!!! Tomorrow I'm gonna do all that jazz twice and then another song!! Just gonna keep working it until
1) I learn the steps by memory (its really repetitive so should be no big deal!) so i can focus on singing =P
2) My feet start moving as much as my arms!!

    8 minutes is not nothing. It's 8 minutes more of it than you did yesterday. And maybe tomorrow you can make it to 10 or even 15, because you know you can already do 8!

    I feel the same way about my arms. They tire out so easily it's sad, lol. Just keep at it and you will be stronger and healthier in no time!!!

A Gain that started bad and ended good!

Thursday, August 05, 2010

I weighed myself last night and i was up .4 pounds and that is the first time since Jeff has been deployed that my scale went up.. i was so mad at myself!!! Especially because I didn't do anything bad.. I've been drinking more water and eating way healthier and kicking butt on exercising and there is no reason for me to be up .. and then when i woke up today the witch paid a visit.. And that was so amazing!!! I hadn't even realized that its ALREADY a month down from when Jeff left!!! Only 11ish more months and my husband will be home!!!

So for now I'm okay with a .4 weight gain from bloating.. especially since NORMALLY its a 2-4 pound weight gain right before this time of the month!!! Which means I didn't do something wrong!!! In fact which means I probably lost weight anyways! (we shall see in a few more days!!!)
