Woo Hoo Two & Elbows

Friday, April 23, 2010

Two pounds gone this week emoticon. Here's a funny... I was looking in the mirror and I noticed a bump sticking out by my elbow, then I looked at the other elbow and there was a bump there too. Hmmmmm, what the heck is that, I took a closer look, and to my surprise it was part of my elbow that I hadn't seen in years emoticon. There are supposed to be two bumps on your elbow but they've been hidden under my chub. Yeah for elbows. To celebrate how great I feel today I am sporting my Sparkpeople shirt to work. I wanna tell the world that SP worked for me and it can work for them.

Keep on Sparking people, it will change your life, it has truly changed mine.

Compliment

Thursday, April 22, 2010

My daughter and I recently saw someone that we hadn't seem in a while (NC) the other night, we all chatted and then went home. My daughter tells me in the car on the way home that NC had said something about me. She said I was the "shrinking woman" that every time she sees me I keep getting smaller and smaller. When I heard that I was so happy, that made my day - it put a big ole grin on my face! emoticon
Just wanted to remind everyone to please compliment others every day, feed them positivity. Even the smallest comment can inspire someone and truly make their day, and emoticon NC, even though you are probably not aware you made my day !!!!!

    I remember when compliments were hard to take. But now, you are right they are so great to hear and are such motivation and always make you feel good.

    i know you're not doing all this hard work for other people to notice but it's nice when the results of the hard work are visible!

and it's so important to be nice - we never know what other people are going through and our nice comment or compliment can really cheer someone up. it's also good for me to get out of my own head too, i know i get stuck there worrying about my own stuff. i've noticed that when i pay attention to others my own stuff still gets done, it just weighs me down less.

  NICE!! What a GREAT motivator to hear such wonderful praise! You are so right about giving compliments. I love seeing the surprise then pleasure on someone's face after you've given an honest compliment. It makes both parties feel good.

hmmm... maybe you should change your sign in name to "shrinking woman" or your superpower name could be the "Incredible shrinking woman"! emoticon

Knotch on the Belt

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Today I tucked my shirt in for the first time, I usually wear blouses that do not have to be tucked in since I have always been self conscious about the belly fat, but today is a different story. I can look in the mirror and like my shirt tucked in now. I realized my pants had belt loops and you know that would be a fashion no-no if I didn't wear a belt so I got one out of the drawer. It was too big, I had to have hubby punch a new hole (about 3 inches from last hole) so I could wear it. That just totally made my day. Hitting the gym tonight after work then home to grill some Tilapia.

Running and the Hair of the Dog

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

I turned over a new leaf, workout every day before work. Today was day 2, didn't hit the snooze alarm at 4:30 when it went off, got up, ran two miles for a quick workout, a little slower than I would have liked to, but hey, it took me 1/2 mile just to wake up - Yeah, I did it. Then I decided to ride my bike to work. I decided to get the hair of the dog, so to speak, that mean ole dog that bit me was my motorcycle. I tipped her over on Friday and hadn't rode since, but I decided today was the day. Get back on it and get over my fear. A little gun shy, but I rode to work - I got the hair of the dog. It's gonna be a great day - workout already done, unless of course I wanna do more tonight, which I probably will and I made it safely to work. Hope all my Spark friends are gonna make it a great day too !!!!

Back on My Game

Monday, April 19, 2010

After an absolutely horrible weekend, I'm back on my game. I suffered a horrible migraine on Friday afternoon, that spilled over into Saturday morning. I still wasn't feeling up to par on Saturday evening, but then Sunday morning I woke up feeling utterly exhausted. Used the whole day on Sunday to rest, and believe me I rested. A migraine will take a lot out of you, leave you feeling completely wiped out. But I am so glad it is over and I'm back on my game, don't think I will run at lunch today, but will definitely give it my all for a brisk walk. Hope everyone enjoyed their weeked.
