"You look've lost weight haven't you?"

Saturday, February 21, 2009

I took my son to his first football practice of this season so I saw some people I didn't see since the season ended in Ocober. I heard that from 2 people today "You look've lost weight haven't you?" .....I guess I am starting a trend with my blogs starting each one with a compliment I got on that day. I guess it shouldn't matter much , but the compliments are good motivation. I am not doing this mainly for my health at this point . As strange as that sounds. Of course it factors in especially with almost all my excess wt. around the danger zone ( the middle ,surrounding the organs) . I have always been healthy ,don't even get colds and I have enough energy to do what I have to do....or it's probably more a matter of discipline. I do what I have to do if other people depend on me doing it. The thing is I have to give myself equal priority. That is what I am starting to do and that is as hard as any part of this. It isn't motivation , or sticking to a diet that is hard for me's putting myself first sometimes . With 5 kids, one of whom has a disability, 2 grandchildren , a fulltime job and a lazy ass husband there is always something somebody wants or needs me to do......Well, I need to do this too. Even if my #1 objective at this point is to look good! the rest automatically comes along with it ...judging by the compliments the past few days(& the scale & the mirror!!), I am getting there !!Yay me!!

Todays workout;
5 min warm up on stairmaster- ( I can usually do longer but that machine is the devil!!)
35mins on the stationary bike
10 min on the treadmill( just to finish up b/c I was getting numb bum on the bike)
