Week 7 ~ Back on Track and Lost 2 Pounds! WooHoo!

Friday, February 15, 2013

Picture of myself (in red), my nephew, my son (wearing "55" for date Disneyland opened), my daughter (blond), and my niece in front of the Getty

Well Sparkies,,,,,,
I am back on track this week,,,,,, making the journey towards my healthier & sexier self,,,, I know she is there somewhere in me,,,,, difficult to find her,,, BUT I have HOPE,,,, and I am not giving up!!! I have determination,,,,,, and desire to be the best that I can be,,,,,, I do not want to live my life wishing that I had lost weight ...... I want to be physically able to still be adventurous,,,, to see the world without getting out of breath! I went to the Getty Museum and I was really struggling when we went up flights of stairs ... my kids of course went through there without a problem,,, but I hate to admit that some of it was tough for me. Being an "older" mom,,, I have to find a way to keep up,,,, and that way is getting healthier.

And talking about kids,,,,,, I have a 19 year old son that joined my gym and is going to make sure that I at least go at least 2 times a week .... and work out at least 4 days a week (treadmill at home)..... He really wants to see his mom healthy and in good shape,,,,, I tell him that he actually did see me like that,,,,,,, but he was about 7 years old at the time! LOL

Ok,,, my friends,,,, I am back on track,,, the trick is to stay FOCUSED on my goals and avoid "emotional eating"....... yeah,, I caught myself this week,,,,,,, I had some painful dental work done and I found myself eating too much........... comforting myself with food??? Can you believe it? I have to find another way ...... because even writing about it right now makes me feel silly. I am too old for this type of foolishness...... time to get healthy!!! emoticon
