It has been a weird week. I am just going to vent:
I went from counting out my baby carrots (last week) and hitting the gym HARD to zero this week. How does that happen?? I mean, I did have a stomach ache so I wasn¡¦t able to work out, and ate very bland aka carb city because I wasn¡¦t sure if it was a virus. Lately, I feel like I can¡¦t catch a break! Ahh! And now I woke up to my mom being sick with a stomach flu ¡V I want to scream! I hate winter and I hate getting sick. Blah. I hope I don¡¦t pick up whatever she has. But chances are, I will. ¼ I hope this weird stomach ache (it may be nerves) goes away soon so I can go back to the gym. I haven¡¦t ran in¡K.I don¡¦t know how long. (No bueno, that is my momentum!) I did well last week eating/fitness wise that when I weighed in I lost 7 lbs to pick me back in the 150s. 157 to be exact. Although, I am not weighing in this week (cause I just don¡¦t feel like I have made any progress from this yucky feeling all week). I will weigh in on Monday, hoping to have lost something. Anything. I just want to stay in the 150s for now. Until spring hits, which I KNOW will motivate me to shred this fat off. And my ultimate goal for this year is to do a mud run, probably Warrior Dash. I am not sure I could handle Tough Mudder just yet. Thinking about it gets me excited¡KYAY! =)
On Monday, I went to get my oil changed/tires rotated at the dealership. While I was waiting for it, one of the managers came over to me while keeping my niece amused playing in the display cars (He probably wasn¡¦t happy, oh well.). They are always extra-friendly, in hopes you will buy your next car from them and I jokingly said ¡§Oh I already bought a car from you¡K¡¨ and he was like ¡§that¡¦s right¡¨. He shook my hand, looking at me strange and was like, ¡§you look different. Is it your hair? Was it always blonde¡K?¡¨ And in the back of my mind I was like ¡§Ughhh no, I lost 50 pounds¡¨ but instead I was like ¡§nope, I¡¦m the same¡¨. Because part of me doesn¡¦t want to be remembered as that fat girl I once was. I bought my car in August 2010 so it has been quite a while since he has seen me. It was just a good feeling to know that even almost complete strangers notice. º
Ok back to reality.
I think I cheered myself up just by writing this blog.
I AM going to start back at the gym on Monday, fierce as ever.
I AM going to go grocery shopping for fresh veggies, fruits, and strictly healthy food this weekend.
I AM going to start packing my daily healthy salads for lunch.
I AM going to drink at least 10 cups of water per day.
I AM going to weigh in next week.
I AM going to lose at least a pound next week.
Sometimes I just need to put my thoughts on paper. Or a computer screen, I guess.
Happy Friday Sparkies! º
