I went on a dog walk with my 3 little ones. I was hesitant because I had to go alone. Hubby has school on Saturdays for the next 8 weeks. It went great! I think we might make it a thing. I consider this a non-scale victory. I don't think I could have kept up with all 3 by my self. I used to be able to take all 3 with me alone when my hubby was in the military but that was many years and many pounds ago. Feeling great?
Any weekend plans?
(Picture to follow, I'm on my phone)
Update: Follow up pictures
This is from left to right Daphne (age 7), Eddie (age 13) and Niles(age6)
This is Niles after the walk, He's ok just tuckered out in the front seat of the car
This is Eddie, After our walk I dropped off the doggies at home and took just Eddie to have lunch with my brother. Eddie is my oldest at 13 years old. Sometimes I take him out with out the younger two. He likes it when it's just me and him. The cafe we went to is very dog friendly and provided dog bowls, water and doggy treats. www.olmosbharmacy.com/
This is Daphne with Eddie photobombing her in the back round. Daphne is my baby girl.
This is another picture of Daphne. These are my kids.
So I got out of the work potluck without incident.
And I don't feel deprived. I thought the smell of fried chicken would entice me but it didn't. It made me a little nauseated actually. I had some veggies without dip or dressing and it was good. I feel great!
But I believe the soundtrack of the day would include the Beastie Boys song "Sabotage".
What? Occasionally I listen to other music then DMB....Emphasis on occasionally. lol Have a great Thursday SparkFriends and thank you for your continued encouragement. You guys ROCK!
Today, imagine that you live in a world where scales do not exist. How would you measure your success? How would you know if you were healthy and fit?
I would measure my success by using my clothes as a guide. I would gage my wellness by how I feel and how much energy I have. I would know that I'm healthy and fit by how much activity and how many things I can do in my waking hours.
I try not to rely so heavily on scales but my doctor says If I don't lose pounds he will recommend I get weight loss surgery. I DO NOT WANT SURGERY! I know people who have had it, it's great for them but not for me. I want to be healthy not skinny for the sake of being skinny. I wish he wouldn't focus so much on the scale but I guess that's what they do. Anyhoo I tend to measure my success by how I feel rather than the scale nazi.
