I just turned 40 years old. (Yikes...never typed that before!) I had truly hoped that my weight would be 'perfect' right now.
Alas, that is not to be. It is roughly where it was last year....after going up, down & standing still, it is where it was last year this time. HOWEVER, my health is good as is my self of being.
Yes, I'm concerned, but now I'm more realistic about it. I will NEVER be 135lbs as my doctor's wall chart keeps telling me. I am NOT built for that. I have hips & thighs that literally will not get me into the 130's..unless I cut them off. And THAT'S not gonna happen!
I'm building muscles & my cardio function is good. My cholesterol & blood pressure numbers are also good.
Still of course working on the weight...but living my life at the same time.
In fact, next week this time, I'll be in Jamaica on the beach in a bathing suit relaxing...and to be honest, I know I won't be feeling self conscious [well not as much as before!!]
And yes, I'll be going for early morning jogs on the beach...I'm actually looking forward to those 'sandy jogs'..and relaxing with 'adult beverages' after.
Ah yes...getting older is not as bad as I thought!

Today was a killer. For various reasons...which escape me at the moment, I decided to spend several hours @ the gym. No biggie you say?
Hour 1...Body Sculpting Class....which just happens to be done by a sadist.
15 mins rest.
Hour 2..Spin Class...remember the sadist mentioned above?? Yep...same one for spin. Yikes!
Next 45 mis....Incline treadmill.
Next 30 mins...sauna...priceless!

Speaking to a friend today, the conversation drifted into how our week went with our exercise, nutrition & consequent weigh ins.
Her complaint was she 'only' lost .2lbs. I kindly pointed out to her that not only was it better than a gain, but had she in fact gained those .2lbs, she would NOT have been saying 'only'!
Hey, I'm always trying to find the bright side...and frankly, ANY loss is a loss..especially as she pointed out, it was her 'time of the month'.
As for me? I gladly got rid of 1.1lbs this week. Sure, I'd like it to have been more. But I'll take a loss where I can get it.
If I'd known I was going to live so long, I'd have taken better care of myself. ~Leon Eldred

I started the week coming down with a cold & slept through my am alarm...no AM work out. Yuck. However, my luck has gone up since then. Yippee!
I did two workouts on Tuesday...and so far, got my AM in for Wednesday.
Heck, I even jogged a bit on both days....and got to work 15 mins early.
What makes this so amazing for me is that I have to be at work by 7:30 AM.
This was made possible by my recognizing the importance of packing EVERYTHING at night....lunch, work bag, my clothes for the 2nd job, etc. Nothing is left to chance.
I come back form my workout, eat breakfast, shower and I'm out the door...with no hassles or rushing, etc.
And oh yeah...my eating has been good too! Enough potassium, fats, carbs & proteins...gotta watch that sodium though. Haven't gone over my caloric intake either. :)
What a wonderful feeling!

You know, I'm about to break up with my BF, and my first thought was; 'Hmm...no more late night dinners".
Was that so bad to think? LOL
Since we've been together, I've gained about 15 lbs. I know he didn't force feed me, so I do take COMPLETE responsibility for every lb.
It doesn't help that he's not the least bit health conscious either! However, even though he needs to lose weight, he doesn't not work on it (but I only eat once a day?!?!) HOWEVER, he HAS noticed MY weight gain...AND commented. Like I don't live in the land of mirrors!
But no biggie...he's a nice person..but not for me. And that makes my planning the 'getting out' strategy so much easier.
But yeah...no more late night dinners!! Gotta get a man that is somewhat health conscious.
