Okay, I'm hugely disappointed. Turns out that my much anticipated Chalean Extreme won't be released until November . I could hardly wait for October when I thought it was going to be out then!!
Alright, stop the whining now.
Plan B - Cathe, FIRM, Amy & Jari for weights; Janis, Kimberly, Chalene, Urban Rebounding for Cardio. Thanking the Lord for all the choices he has given me and moving one.
I had a real bad case of the lazies this week. I have to step it up next week or I'll never make my fat percentage goal.
I know you all are doing better than I am. Throw some of that my way, will ya?

I said goodbye to 6 inches yesterday. Not of body fat (I wish), OF HAIR ! Gotcha! I got a haircut yesterday that shocked my friends and family. I chopped everything all the way up to my shoulders. It was so liberating!! This is the first time I've been above bra strap length in forever. What prompted me to do that? I'm not sure but I had a hugely bad work week which culminated in a shocking confrontation with one of my staff members in which I was reduced to tears. After spending the afternoon regaining my composure, and my authority, ( yeah she recognized her error, felt like crap and apologized) I think I needed a public display of the empowerment I felt. Kind of like GI Jane (LOVE that movie) when she shaved her head.
I have a fabulous hairdresser who knows that my husband loves my long hair. I only went in for a trim but the more I sat there, the braver I got. I started looking through her hair books. I knew the kind of cut I wanted, in my head but I couldn't find it in the books. I could only tell her I wanted it shorter, a lot shorter. She got nervous and contemplated having me sign a release because she didn't have permission from my husband . Finally I talked her into it. This lady knows me so well and is such a fab hairdresser that she took those scissors, went to work, pulled the picture out of my head and placed it on my hair. It ended up being EXACTLY what I wanted. I LOVE IT!!
My husband was shocked to say the least because I always threaten him with cutting it but I never follow through. That morning before I left I mentioned to him that I was going to get a bit more that a trim. He jokingly said, yeah, go one and get Rhianna's cut. When he got home he couldn't believe how much I took off. He likes it but can't wait for it to grow back. I hope he's patient because I may just keep it this short

Okay, I just read the goals on my Sparkpage and realized that I set a goal to lower my body fat by three points by October 1st. I TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT IT! To be honest I've been seriously slacking on the eating front every since I went on my cruise and I think I may have even gained a percentage point or two.
Okay, so what's the plan? 3 points down in a month? Not sure if that's even possible but I'm always up for a challenge. I will start buckling down today. YES I SAID IT! Today, Labor Day Weekend today! I've obviously been indulging since I came back so there is no need to this weekend. Shouldn't be too difficult to stay on track. My sister is coming up and bringing Maryland crabs to go with my husband's lobster boil and clam bake. Lucky or not, I'm allergic to shellfish so there is no temptation there. The most I will have to resist is the 4 dozen Jamaican Patties she is bringing with her. Gratefully, those will be raw and frozen so it will take deliberate effort to pig out on them. The house is stocked with fruit, salad, soup, chicken breast, fish, quinoa, brown rice and veggies so I have NO EXCUSE on the food front.
As far as exercise, I am so JEALOUS of COOLTWINMOM3 starting P90X without me (yeah I called you out ) that I am going to try and do it vicariously through her. I will up my own workouts in P90X fashion to prepare for Chalean Extreme which God willing, will be released in October.
Busy day ahead so I've got to get moving now. More insane ramblings later.
