My hike yesterday did me well, as I woke up at 141.6 lbs this morning! I'm feeling much better today, also- both physically and emotionally.
My husband and I had a talk about my weight loss. He would like for me to focus less on losing weight, at this point, and more on toning up... since he knows I have a naturally athletic and muscular build. I'm excited about making that a 2013 goal- to get in better shape physically. I've focused a lot on cardio in 2012 to make my weight goals so it will be fun, now that I've shed the layers of adipose tissue (fat) to start sculpting some killer muscles!! I would prefer to get a few more pounds of fat off first, though. So this isn't something I'm going to start until the New Year. I'm excited about it though! I used to work out a lot and even had dreams, when I was younger, of competing in figure competitions. That's out of the question for me now, but I can at least pretend! Working out and sculpting muscles was always a fun hobby that I enjoyed. And since I have a genetic disposition to do this with ease (I inherited my dad's muscular build), it should be quite rewarding!

I anticipate a few challenges today. We're taking my daughters to The Mall to meet Santa today. The Mall stresses me out... especially on a weekend. The food court will be calling me, and that stupid Great American Cookie Co!!! Mmmm.... those cookies are so good!
But I'm resolute to not indulge today, as I have my first Christmas party to attend tomorrow and I want to look and feel my best! Plus, I'll have plenty of cookies to indulge in soon enough!
Hope you all have a great Saturday!!! It's in the 80's here in Houston... it really doesn't much feel like Christmas. I'll always be a Northern girl at heart.
