2012 was an amazing year for me. I know that I have mentioned it a million times already but I am going to say it a million more. I LOST 40 POUNDS this year :) !
I still can't believe it.
My husband can pick me up and I don't panic that I will break his back, instead it is exhilerating to know that he can lift me effortlessly.
My brother is coming home from Florida tonight and I can't wait until he sees me. I am also so excited about attending my big family party. A lot of them have not seen me since last Christmas and I can't wait. I won't be the big girl in the family anymore.
I only have 12 more pounds to go before I am at my goal weight. So this year my goal is to tone up while I lose the rest. Exercise is scary for me. I have done it in spits and spurts. I play with the kids. I love to get on the trampoline with them, especially now that I know I wont break it. But I need to get more serious about it. I need to add a daily routine.
Way back when I used to wake up every morning and stretch my muscles and do a mini exercise routine of situps, push ups, side bends and a few other quick moves before I got ready for work in the morning. I am going to add this to my early morning routine once again.
After that I am still not sure. I used to do workout routines that my On Demand cable company provided a few times a week. I think I will do this again. I liked it, I had fun, and felt good.
Since I am going to quit smoking (again) or as a spark friend suggested I will become a Non-smoker this year, I need to replace a bad habit with a good one and exercise will surely be a good replacement.
I am publicly committing to doing this at least three times a week.
I love my body the way it is now, but I still wont be comfortable in a bathing suite because it is still so flabby. I know that I will never get rid of the ugly pouch hanging from my stomach but I can tighten up the rest of me.
I have watched a few Zumba routines, and man they look fun but wow they look extremely difficult.
I am still worried about being hungry after a workout. Are there any tricks out their that any of you use to quench hunger after a workout? I am really going to need help with this.
Thank goodness for Spark friends :)
