Even more to say

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Gosh, it's been way to long since I've posted. I just don't have the time. But I have so much to say! Thankfully, the scale started moving. Finally! I'm so thrilled! I've been working so hard, watching my nutrition and doing my work-outs with no movement at all on the scale. It was demoralizing. So I lowered my expectations, figured, well, at least I'm no longer GAINING weight! And then all of a sudden....movement! Woo hoo! I couldn't be more thrilled!

And then I got sick. And my energy left my body. I slogged through the day. Barely stayed upright to feed the children, forget about myself. That was last week. And then Saturday it hit - full lung infection. Boom. And I still had to slog through. Take the children to orchestra. Take the children to the circus. Do the food shopping. Clean the house. Slog, Slog, Slog. Ugh.

I promised a friend that if I didn't feel better by Monday that I'd take myself to the doctor. So I did. After one day on the Z-pack, I felt A LOT better. Today, I'm nearly back to normal and had a GREAT workout. Phew!

And you know what happened when I got on the scale at the doctor's office? I've never been so happy to see that scale read that I've lost six pounds so far. SIX pounds! I'm so thrilled! I wanted to dance from the rooftops! I've lost weight! I'VE LOST WEIGHT!!! LOOK, I'M DOING IT!!! Did you hear me yelling? Yep, that was me!

So I have the recipe now. I know what to do.

My children are becoming my cheerleaders. They know what time I work out and if I don't, they start pushing me toward my workout. "Mommy", they say, "you got to get your fat off!" Big grin.

I'm on my way...
