Today is the first day of starting the next set of 100 days on Sparkpeople.
This will put me in around February. I am a little nervous about it since I HATE winter. I hate waking up when it is still dark and going home from work and it is dark. I hate the cold, the bitter wind, and the snow and ice. I hate scraping icy windshields - my credit card works better than my ice scraper - LOL And I especially hate the howling winds and the slightly cool drafts that filter into the house by the windows...
But I do LOVE looking at the freshly fallen snow at night when the street lights glisten on the snow. It looks like a million diamonds sparkling and twinkling. I especially love it when there is no wind and just around freezing where I am outside just absorbing the diamond sparkles and drinking my hot tea.
I also love the morning after an ice storm! The trees are fully outlined by ice crystals - every twig is encased and when the sun hits it, the beauty of the tree just shines brilliantly!
But other than that...I HATE winter! LOL
I just hope that I do not get wrapped up too comfortably on a cold winter's night in my snuggly blankets and watching tv when I should be in my workout clothes sweating it out!
I am hoping that I can lose between 13 and 18 pounds by Day 300. I hope that I am squeezing into size 12 by then. I have a ton of size 12 shorts for next summer! Though wouldn't it be a stitch that by next summer I will be in size 10! If that is the case, then I must go on vacation to a warm, sunny location with my size 12 shorts and enjoy while it lasts!
Okay...starting day 1 of the next 100 days!!!
