Well,,, I bought a beautiful pair of Michael Kors shoes,,,, they rock and are super sexy,,, BUT I refuse to wear them until I am below 200 lbs........ which is not a small feat for me since I have been on the yo-yo cycle this year,,,, but I am determined to wear these cute little things this summer....... hmmmm dreaming of those sexy shoes on me!!! (black and strappy! .... with toenails painted red! ... so sexy!)
OMG,,,, I got up to 238!!! As of today I am down 6 pounds but what the heck was going on with me???? I guess I was getting depressed and feeling like no one in the world would ever care about me,,, but I was wrong..... I went out on my first date since separating from my soon to be ex husband,,,,, first time on a date in 25 years! LOL,,,,, To my suprise, the guy wants to go out with me again! (sorry,, no chemistry but handsome guy... stuck in the friend zone with me but it was fun). This date helped me realize that "hey, there are good looking guys out there who would want to date me and go out with me!". I thought that I was too old and that no one out there would be interested..... but I was wrong.
Which helped motivate me to take better care of myself.......and of course,,, the blogs of my friend, who never gives up and share, motivates & encourages me to move my A$$.......
and the encouragement of all my Sparks Friends !
So to jump start my new way of eating and looking at life........ I decided to do a cleanse which is recommended by Dr. Oz . The great thing is that the juices are already made for me and all I had to do was go to my local Costco and buy them! Of course, I am not just drinking the juice,,, I am eating healthy,,, protein and complex carbs (yeah,,, I know how to do it but just knowing that I am committed to this for 4 days helps focus me to eat right)
Day 1 of the cleanse,,,, well,,, not bad but I want want want other things... trying to stay focus ... as I said, this one is all prepared for me so all I have to do is measure and drink, drink, drink. It was kind of funky at first but now I am starting to like it. Figure it will give me a jump start and it is healthy. Wish me luck,,,, having nothing but fruits, veggies, protein drinks and protein..... no bread, no sugar, nothing fried for 4 days...... which leaves still a lot of options for me..... so wish me luck!
Life is an adventure and a challenge......... Just because my life changed, does not mean that I need to give up and die......... there is a beautiful world out there and I want to be a part of it! Have a great evening everyone!
