Go Ahead, Call Me A Loser!

Friday, February 01, 2013

I weighed in at Curves today at 180.1. That was with my clothes and my shoes on. There is usually about a 3 pound difference b/t home naked and clothed at curves or the doctor office or whatever and that still holds. But, I'm super excited to be on the brink of breaking out of the 80s fully clothed! WooHoo! I'm still feeling slim too and peple noticed today that I am losing.

I went to the Y again for water aerobics this AM. I ran into several people I missed last time I was there who gave their sympathies on the loss of my mother. I thanked them, told them I was sorry she was gone too and didn't even cry. I felt proud of that. Every mention of her doesn't make me cry now. Don't get me wrong. I still miss her and still think of her and still wish she was still with us, but her memory doesn't hurt as much as it makes me proud to have her as my mother now. It was so, so, so very cold when I went out today that I almost turned around and climbed back into bed! But, I didn't. I went on and got in the pool and enjoyed my workout and the smell of the chlorine. I then left the Y and went to Curves and weighed in and worked out. It wasn't my best calorie burn, but I was tired from water aerobics and allowed myself a lower calorie burn. At least I burned some calories and did my workout. I still need to do my bootcamp video and my 1 mile indoor fitness walk, so should rack up some fitness minutes today!

The wind is just fierce out there today and the wind chill this AM was -7!! That is darn freezing cold especially around here! We had some flurries this AM, but no accumulation. Supposed to have the same tomorrow night. The sun is bright & shiny, but man is it cold!

Hmmmm, sure wish I had alot of money and could build and maintain an indoor pool! I'd love that!

I'm proud of myself and hoping that next week I can weigh in fully clothed and be below 180! Honestly, that hasn't happened in awhile! Next week I get measured too, so am anxious to see how many inches are gone with the poundage. 1 pound at a time.....

    Hey Princess Slim Groovey, way to go! At -7* I have to tip my surfboard at you and say WOW! I can't even imagine leaving the house when it is in the 50s, much less getting undressed to get in a pool.
I'm glad that each day continues to get a bit better, and that each day brings new realizations, challenges, and celebrations.
emoticon to you!

    You should be proud of yourself, and so glad to see your looking forward again. emoticon It does get easier, but you will always miss your Mom. I lost my Mom in 1994, and she is always with me, just like yours will be.
You are an awesome lady. emoticon emoticon emoticon
