Today I...

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Weighed myself...and owned up to it. I plotted my goal weight and determined how long it will take to get there. The good news is that I can achieve it by my four year Sparkversary in May. I also took Day 1 measurements so I have a way to measure progress when the scale won't.

Tracked. I didn't modify my portion sizes or food choices vs. my typical diet for months and months now. I even logged the ketsup on my veggie dog. I was not within my ranges, but then I didn't set my goals until I was done eating for the day.

Kept procrastination to a minimum. Yeah, I took a nap when I could have been working out, but at the end of the day, I am here...and that counts for something.

Not gonna talk about starting over. Not gonna speculate on how awesome I am going to be a month from now or a year from now.

The hubby and I are less than two weeks away from getting our adoption study approved. We have been practicing our parenting skills on every 7 year old kid our friends will loan us for the night or the week! We have almost finished building our basement up from bare studs to a space we can use for our soon to be growing family. I am pretty awesome today....

A month or a year from now I'd just like to be skinnier too!

    Happy that you are nearing the end of the adoption and you will soon have a child to cherish. Your accountability will be to your child's future. He or she will always want a healthy Mom. Wishing you the best as you make this most important change in your life. emoticon

    so glad to hear that things are progressing with the adoption and that things are well... sometimes i think just acknowledging and moving forward is the best way to go. obsessing can be so destructive!

    Starting today is all any of us can do. You are pretty awesome....and, we'll both be thinner this time next year. emoticon

    What a fabulous day!! I'm so excited that you'll have your adoption study approved soon! I know that will be a bit of stress-relief when that is done!

Hope you have another fabulous day today!!!
