Smiling & Giddy but at a Standstill

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

Hi my SparkPeople! It's been way too long since I've touched bases with you. I'm still hanging in here, getting very close to my original Spark Anniversary date and my rededicated Spark Anniversary. Both are in July. That must be my month of change.

How's my exercising going? Not the best but not the worst either. I'm walking 2-3 miles at least twice a week. I make it to the gym once or twice a week. I know I could do better but I'm being honest. I still haven't given up. I'm just moving in slow motion on this last leg of my race towards my ideal weight. I hope it's true that slow and steady wins...we'll see about that!

My eating sucks! I'm eating many things that I need to avoid but the weight has not caught up with me yet. I know I've got to do better and I will. I must think I'm on vacation from my program just like I am from college. I better get it right and get it tight. LOL.

Right now my weight is kind of stuck. It may fluctuate a pound or so from day to day but it's basically on pause. I know what it takes to kickstart it again but I haven't been as disciplined as I need to be in order to accomplish my goals. I will be though. I can feel it in my bones!

I'm being courted by a nice man...yes, I said being courted and he has been taking me out to eat too much. I told him last night that we should make dates to go walking or jogging or maybe a gym date. He can get with it or I'll have to see him when I'm done working out. He likes what he sees and I'm trying to keep it like this or better. LOL. I'm a mess, right? I know. LOL.

I'm kind of giddy right about now. Just happy that I'm getting all this attention. That may sound vain but I'm keeping it real. It feels good to have some companionship. I'm not saying that he's "the one" but he's nice to me right now so I'm enjoying every second of it.

So, if I'm not updating as much as I have in the past, just know that I'm still out here living life and working towards my fitness goals. Did I mention that I'm smiling while I do it?

    Honesty is the best policy my granma always woould say. You are doing what you need to do and eventually it will be kicked into high gear.

Peace and Love

    Well good for you, that you have a nice gentleman "courting" you! And that's great that you're giddy!! Isn't that a GREAT feeling! Good luck!

And you know what you're able to do as far as eating right and working out, because you've done all the right things to get where you are today! although your work outs don't seem to be too bad. Just maybe not as intense as you're used to doing, BUT you're still moving a few days a week!

  There must be some kind of Spark virus going around because several of us are currently on this sorta kinda doing our program thing. I've even gained a few. Enjoy the guy, keep your focus and get back down to business. I'm talking to myself and you.

    That's great. I'm glad you found a companion. If you could make it a work out companion that would be even better!
