This month has been great and full of adventure!!!! I am blessed and continue to focus on the positive and try to help others see the good in their life and live a healthier life. I have made some really good choices this month that I am very proud of :o) A few not so good but that is just part of being human so I am ok with that!!!!!
Today is the second "lesson" in a study that I am doing with a dear friend of mine.(I think there are 12 - 2 hour sessions total) The study is about preventing diabetes and basically being healthier. I'm really excited to see what it will bring.
So as far as accomplishments for August go here are my top four:
1 - I got into the 150's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, right now I'm about 158, will update next week. Here is my picture from my official weigh-in that I was under 160 :o) So my appointment to get my hair cut and highlighted is set for next Tuesday!!!!! Yeah I had two goals to be able to go. First was to not gain on our trip which was a success and the second was to be under 160 another success. Now I need to come up with a under 155 reward :o)
2 - I went to a buffet (Sweet Tomatoes) and am happy about the choices I made!!!!! Here are the pictures of what I had, I also went after a 2 hour workout and didn't use that as an excuse to indulge. I am so proud and happy about this choice!!!! :o)
3 - I am being positive at work and making great changes. Life is what you make of it after all, right? I won't always be in this job, but for now it is helping get us out of debt and I have some great friends!!!!! I am just trying to help others on my own until I can have a job doing so.
4 - I also got into the next size down jeans :o) and get this next week I am going to try the next size down ( I bought them last month on clearance)
I have also been making my yummy protein coffee shake and egg and veggie patties
Here is some corn and green chiles I got from the wouderful co op that I participate in (Bountiful Baskets)
Here are some homemade baked fries I made :o) I made up a bunch of these by cutting them up cooking most the way then freezing them. So much better then processed ones and the kids love them!!! Also we don't waste the potatoes that hubby won't use for baked potatoes.
Here are a few pictures that I took with my "old" jeans about a month ago
My flatout veggie pizza
My son broke his arm a week ago, all the way through his radious :o( but on the plus side he is ok :o) and is in good care. He goes again on Friday for more x-rays. He also loves his castoo Panda ;o)
One last pic, our new fish Flo :o) my hubby has a saltwater tank
Hope everyone is doing great and making some great choices. Please focus on the great things in your life. It really does improve the quality of life!!! :o) I'm going to Zumba 4 days a week and a few other classes and raquetball mixed in :o) I've got my sister going to the gym with me!!! This is great!!!!!! We are also starting a step challenge at wor to help motivate people to work more. :o) So many grat things are coming up and going right in my life. Nothing can bring it down!!!! Just make the best of the not so pleasant people/things and move forward. Have a great day and a Spectacular September!!!!!
