Happy Valentine's Day!
Each and every one of you are my Valentines. You are the ones that are there through THICK and NOT-SO THIN, and who to better celebrate love with than those you really do care about and those that will be with you as you move on to better, and worse, days.
I was only able to get a mile in earlier today as we seem to have gotten stuck with 52 as a high today. Was 80 here yesterday, so the change can be felt all the way through every joint I have, and none of them are happy. But I am going to take my lumps today as you all have been in this crud for months now. It's just strange to see brand new green leaves on trees and now today it is glum and gray like Winter is supposed to be. My plants are truly confused, especially my petunias!
A short one today as I laid in bed in pain all day yesterday, and I really would like to make up for some lost time and get some cycling in. It burns more calories than walking does, but the walking does more for my sanity. LOL. So maybe I can do both.
My dad is taking us, his "ladies", out for dinner tonight for seafood - if we can get in. If not, we will simply opt for chicken and I can pull the skin off and put it on a salad. I am getting fried oysters anyway, so it doesn't matter what I eat tonight. There is no chocolate in the house, but I sure wish I had a box of chocolate so I could stuff my face with them! HAHA!!
Anyway, I am up to a 49.25 inch loss from my body, but gained 2 pounds since Monday already. I am really sick of this scale. So my overall weight loss to date is still 46.6 pounds in 8 months. I was really looking forward to hitting that 50 pounds lost mark, but it's getting to be a struggle. And I know I need to stay OUT of the cereal at night, but I LOVE it!
So that is my Valentine's Day pledge. I will not eat cereal anymore at night and see if that will SPARK more weight loss for me. Otherwise I may just push myself over the edge... or something (can't think of anything big to push myself off of right now)!
Peace, Love, and Valentine's Day Massacres,
PS: I was gonna change my goal to 30 pounds lower, but should I wait until I hit the first goal in 10 more pounds, or it is less painful to just add it and say, "LOSE 40 MORE POUNDS, WOMAN!"? How do you all feel about this?
