Happy holidays to all my friends here on Sparks. Its been a frenzy of shopping and wrapping, and cooking. It is done now. Presents are opened.. we all have full bellies from eating a fabulous meal, and of course some goodies to pick on for the afternoon.
I am not big on doing the "big meal" it is alot of work for 15 minutes of chowing.. but thats ok. I feel my family appreciate it and do help to clean up after all is said and done. I got a present from my husband that will inspire me to lose some more weight. He did not want to buy me clothes, becasue he he knows I am trying to lose weight. so he gave me a 100.00 card to go buy what I want.. I feel this is an oppurtunity to use this as a incentive. I will save it and go "spend " it when I loose another 20 pounds...My goal is to do this by june 30th... 6 months 20 pounds? Its doable.. I will wait till june 30th to actually go and use it.. so if by chance I loose more... woo hoo.. I need to put this card somewhere to remind myself to not let a day go by with out doing something toward this goal.
Drinking my water!
Exchange high calorie for lower calorie fare..
Continuing my strength training.. and increasing my days in the gym.. (either classes or aerobic machines)
Time to change things up.. time to add new habits .
The strength training is going great. But this does not take care of the whole problem.. I see that and realizing.. somehow in my mind I thought if i exercise.. it will fix me.. nope. it only took me so far.. so need to finish this race.. strong!
so happy holidays.. and hope today was a peaceful day for all of you.
