Day 201 - The Start of the Next 100 Days!
Friday, October 18, 2013
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!!!
