After such a bad Friday, it was nice to go to the fashion show last night. I went with a couple friends and we had a lot of fun. I was the thinnest one of us in the pictures. It was odd. I never think of myself as a regular sized person. I had on size 10 jeans and an 8 top. It is going to take a long while to start thinking of myself in that way. My hubby said today that I am going to have to stop being annoyed by skinny people unless I want to be annoyed by myself. It was pretty funny since I have joked with a couple petite friends of mine that it is a good thing they are really nice because it would be really easy to dislike them since there are little and thin. One thing I know for certain, I have never and will never base my opinion of someone on their physical appearance. It is a fact of life that people do that but I don't have to. I will never forget where I came from and how difficult this journey really is. It will be a struggle the rest of my life and I know that going in. I am that much ahead of the game with that knowledge.
It is Friday and I am down some more on the scale this morning. I got up at 4:45 because I had to be sure to have time to get dressed since I have a funeral to go to at 11AM. I did my work out, took a shower, and got to work at 7:50. I was greeted with the news that one of my friends and co-worker's little brother died in an accident last night. It is really sad around here today. I am going to a charity fashion show tonight but I don't really feel much like it. Hopefully after the funeral I will be a little more ready to change into my going out clothes for tonight. There is a balance of happy and sad. That is just the way of the world. At least the sad gives you a new appreciation of the happy moments. Here's to a good weekend and another strong week next week!
I got up this morning at the normal 4:58AM. I went potty and then weighed. I was down to 146.4. I usually don't drop like that this deep into a weight loss period. I am pleased with 0.5-1 pound a week so this was really exciting. I am still religiously doing my exercises and doing pretty good with nutrition also. It seems to be paying off. I am going to lower my goal weight. I set it forever ago and I am close enough now to adjust it with a little more idea of what it will really be like. I had set my goal weight at 142 but now I think 134 will be an appropriate weight. I am excited since it has been a long time since I weighed in the 130's. Here is to setting an surpassing goals!
This week has been weird. Yesterday was awful but I shook it off pretty well with a 45 minute walk last night. Today has started okay but who knows how it will end. It is still early. I am hoping for a good day. I could use it about now. I did my exercise this morning and may go for another walk this evening after work. It worked well yesterday. It is supposed to be scattered thunder storms all afternoon but you can never tell. I am sure it will all work itself out!
I am up and at 'em today. I did my FF&FU and an hour on my Life Cycle, got ready and came to work. I seem to be energized for some reason. My hubby and I went for a short 30 minute walk last night which was very nice. It is humid in NM for the last couple days and I look like a damn Q-tip. That is one thing I do not miss from growing up in the South...humidity. My hair is a completely different animal in the Southwest. I had to upgrade moisturizer and conditioner but that seems like a small price to pay for good hair days. I think we are going to Jason's Deli for lunch. I can have a cup of SW Chicken Chili and half a Mediterranean Wrap and be within my calorie requirements, no problems!
