Best Non-Scale Victory...
I would have to pick: Loving My Body, as it is, from a journey that began One Part At A Time.
I started this pet project a while ago.
I met really cool people who joined me.
We picked a part each week to love on, pamper, admire, or at least come to some kind of greater appreciation for.
It worked for me.
I really like myself better than I ever have before.
I do not hate on myself anywhere near as much as before.
I accept myself so much more as I am, in the moment, with an understanding that the thoughts/moments will change.
Loving myself for who I am right NOW is definitely my greatest victory!
But that doesn't mean I don't want to tweak a few things here or there...

My co-worker, who missed me very much while I was on vacation, decided to surprise me with a McDonald's Frappe Mocha this morning.
Bless her heart.
I drank half and had to give the rest away.
Why did I drink any???
I just couldn't hurt her feelings.
I did go to a body sculpting class after the am shift. 45 minutes of weight work. I am already sore. What am I going to do about that???
Seriously, I do not know when to say when.
I feel like I push myself too enthusiastically.
But then, I did leave the class when I could take no more. (shaking arms even without weights in them might be a clue)
I did as much as I could--and it was more than I do at home. I feel good about that.
And, I did only drink half the frappe. And, I made her promise to work out with me this week. (she committed to Thursday)
I guess all is not lost.
I guess I am learning.
I will take that. And I will be proud.
*I will never drink ice cream in the am again! My stomach is hating me right now. Healthy, yummy, lunch--here I come!

Props to me. (clappping)
I had a lovely time on vaca, but decided to really start working hard on this re-shaping my body.
(here's where the props come in) I got home, went to the grocery store and bought tons of veggies, fruit and whole grains. I pulled out the lean meats to thaw from the freezer. I am now ready to tackle this week--well within my range. And, I have the Y's class schedule and I am going to take one everyday this week.
Oh yeah! It's ON!

Today was 50's day at the Y's summer camp.
I dressed up in a fabulous dress complete with pearls.
I work in the large basement room-running the pre and post camp.
I had an errand to run upstairs at the front office, so I went.
Once upstairs, I discovered one of my camp Mom's attempting to squash a mouse with a binder.
I couldn't stand to watch. Then "mickey" took off!
I grabbed the small garbage can and the chase was on.
Picture me in my dress and pearls running around the info desk trying to capture a mouse!
And, Oh Yeah! That mouse was mine! (safely retained under the garbage can)
Later some dude "took care of mickey". (I couldn't stand to watch)
I asked for a raise.
