Hello


Saturday, March 02, 2013

I'm back. In my mind I never really left. I've been thinking of you all daily. Every time I was on the computer, hubby was like are you on Sparkpeople. When I told him 'no', he was like emoticon and encouraged me to come back on...so here I am.

Let's see.... I've been eating veggies, drinking water and exercising. Yup, I went back to the gym. The first time since maybe before Halloween. I'm taking it slowly because I still have that stupid twinge in my back whenever I exercise. I did 15 minutes on the bike one day and 15 minutes on the elliptical the next. Both days I walked around the track. As a matter of fact, I might take a stroll around the park this afternoon.

I'm trying to set some small goals for myself. I want to lose at least 10 pounds this month, and at LEAST 5 pounds each month afterwards.

In May, my son is graduating from college. I want to feel good in the pictures and not hide like I usually do.

In June my baby son graduates from high school and I want to look good in the pictures again. Also, in June is my 45th birthday and my anniversary.

July is my family reunion.

Although my motivation is purely for vanity reasons, I gotta use whatever I got to motivate myself. Whatever the reason, good health will be the end result.

Random thought...
Did I ever show you guys my finished kitchen?

    I kinda think that vanity lies right close to the surface for most of us wanting to lose weight. Even if health is also an issue that MUST be addressed, I doubt seriously that there are those who do not think about how much better they will LOOK, as well as feel, once they reach their goal. It's a universal thing, in my opinion, and can't say that I have ever met an HONEST person who didn't care about their outward appearance.

Your kitchen .... WOW! It looks fantastic and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that back splash. Awesome!!!

Glad you're back, kiddo, and glad you're doing all the things I SHOULD be doing. emoticon emoticon
