So, I lost twenty pounds before we left for Ireland and I'm so glad I met that goal. Now I'm trying to decide what my next goal should be. I have my birthday in August. Maybe I should shoot for another fifteen pounds by then. I have all of June and July, which would be about two pounds a week. Things are a little stressful lately, but I am going to try by getting myself to the gym, drinking all my water, and making my lunches with lots of fruits and veggies.
I am so glad that I have been going to the gym, because when I was in Ireland I was able to bike faster and longer than two other people in the group, including high hills and long stretches of hard work. I was so proud of myself. I would love to continue with more biking exercise in the future. I discussed buying myself a bike for my birthday with Rory, and he said he'd get me one on his trip to Singapore ;) (he was just kidding). I would also like to get a new pair of Sauconys, because mine are wearing out a bit and I love them so so so much. The toes are wearing through and the heel cup has seen much better days. These will be easier to plan for after I finish paying off my credit card (a joint promise I made to myself this year was to pay off the credit cards, and my car, and lose weight at the same time so that when all is said and done, I am in a happier place). I'll be financially free in September, and hopefully about forty pounds lighter than when i started!!
Bought myself some new Omega supplements (3, 6, and 9 in a mix of about 1000 mg). This is supposed to help with bipolar mood stabilization, and also is good for your heart, skin, and hair. I noticed that my multivitamin from Trader Joe's is really helping my nails to grow stronger, despite the fact that I still play guitar without a pick. I just hope I can keep up taking the pills three times a day. I know they will help me, but only if I take them!!
