The Golden Cornucopia. You want it, but you can't have it!
Not really sure it will be considered a cornucopia, but I do have a few things to cover in this blog. Let's be honest here, I really just wanted to use the word cornucopia. I mean, you literally need a cornucopia of cornucopia's in your life! Am I right? Hopefully this first paragraph let you meet your allotment of cornucopia's for the day. If not, you better go seek some higher power cornucopia! God speed my friend.
Now that we have that out of the way, let us discuss weight loss. More specifically, mine. I know it seems a bit narcissistic, but after all, it is my blog. With my weigh-in yesterday (down 2 lbs.), I have now lost 142.9 lbs. in 315 days. Those numbers really mean a couple of things to me.
One, I can't believe that I am actually able to type on here that I have lost 142.9 lbs! I mean, I knew it was possible but I didn't! Know what I mean? I am now only 23.6 lbs. away from reaching my original goal! That also seems really hard to believe!
Two, I am only 50 days away from 1 year! Just 50!
That 50 number is the one that really has me thinking. Do you want to know what I am thinking? (You guys are always so wonderful and always want to know) I am wondering if I can hit my goal number by day 365? Could I hit my goal within 1 year of starting this crazy thing? Is that possible?
The answer is, YES! Of course I can. It is just under 1/2 pound a day. That is totally doable, right? Yea, but...
Isn't there always a "yea, but?" In this case, it isn't a bad "yea, but?" It really isn't. It would be #SuperWonderfulFantastic to make my goal within 365 days, but if I don't, I won't stress over it. I won't lose any sleep. I know that I will be really close to it by then, so what does it matter if it takes me 375 or 385 days? Doesn't mean I don't hope to make it by 365, it just means that I am being realistic about it!
I said a cornucopia, so let us cover some other things.
I am thinking about going vegetarian. Well, not so much thinking about it, but more like I am going to try it for a month starting April 1st. I am really into challenging myself these days, so I thought that going vegetarian would be an interesting challenge. I figure, try it for a month and see how I like it. See how it makes me feel. We'll see, and I'm sure I will keep you updated on how that goes.
Took this myself the other night! Nice, right?
Our Rec basketball season is over :( We lost our first playoff game on Thursday night by 2 points, season over! I really wish we could have gotten the W and gotten at least one more game in. But the basketball experience for me was fantastic! It was a lot of fun and another good challenge for myself! No way I could have even considered playing basketball with all of the running a year ago, but now I want more! Looking forward to playing again!
Bringing The Fight!
Last thing for today, Les Mills Ultimate Warrior Combat Hybrid workout. Say that 5 times fast, I dare ya! I am done with the first 14 days of the 60 day workout plan. I have to say, I am loving the program. I have been sore for the first time in many months! It is the good kind of sore that means I am working some new muscles! Plus I have lost 8.8 lbs. in the first 14 days, so you can't argue those results. Really looking forward to see what the next 46 days can do for me!
Bring It On Connery!
Ok, I lied, one more thing. Picking up my tux this week for my cousins wedding next Saturday. Looking forward to getting some good pics with my girls (they are the flower girls). Might even sneak in a James Bond type pose or three ;)
Embrace The Possibilities
