OKAY - so it is INSANELY early right now - 02:03 - January 3rd 2011. I logged into my personal email account; clicked on a SPARK email message; then noticed my SPARK fitness minutes:
0 this week - 0 this month - 0 this year
I have been a SPARK member since April 2008 - lost 30 - and regained 10 - but more muscle then fat - now wearing a size 9-10 not a 14-16. Went through my closet and am taking my FIRST REAL leather jacket I ever purchased to a consignment shop this week. BUT with all this progress - I have been depressed about my progress recently- the plateau's - the boredom at the gym - so I just dropped a TON of cash for 8 wks of personal training, 7 more sessions to go, still a little sore from last thursday's session, going back every thursday until February 17, wish me luck please!.
I have been with my man for 8 yrs - we met in the spring of 2001 - he asked if could flirt with me on my birthday in February 2002 - we moved in together in March 2003 - got engaged in November 2010 - thinking about 2012 for the actually VERY low maintenance, low cost wedding with a house party/barbeque that we have become famous amongst our close friends afterwards (we don't want gifts, just good wishes).
He said to me last night - a few hours ago actually - that I am 46 - do I want to be 20 again - HECK NO ! I just don't want to look old - feel old (peri-menopausal, thus the reason I am awake now !, LOL), want to turn the heads, get the compliments, I was NOT attractive in my teens/early twenties (or so I believe).
50 is looming SO fast.
SO back to --- 0 -0 -0 .
I am updating that STAT NOW !. I spent an hour and 1/2 at the gym 'yesterday' morning (Jan 2)- then about 90 minutes HEAVY cleaning de-XMAS'ing my home ( about 50 times up and down that stairs carrying ornaments, the artifical tree, cleaning the basement, etc, so I KNOW that counts to fitness minutes ).because I was really pushing it).
I am meeting my work out friend in the morning - we hooked up 'yesterday' morning for the first time in over 6 weeks. I pulled her out of bed at 08:2o yesterday and me there at 08:45 ! LET'S GO ! that's about all I can say about that..LOL.
OK...so back to 0 - 0 - 0 ................That changes NOW ! - Good bye OLD fat/unhealthy friend - Hello the NEW Heather ! Going to go into my late 40's as a healthy, fit, semi-slim babe!
MEXICO looms in my future - HELLO string bikini !
