An Interesting Week~

Thursday, November 07, 2013

Today is my beautiful daughter Samantha's 17th birthday. It is hard to believe she is seventeen. And it is amazing to think that seventeen years ago I brought this beautiful girl into this world. Children just grow so fast , and in that time we all are aging as well. No, I can't say that I really feel old. I've celebrated 49 birthday's and I am still young at heart.

This picture was taken in January. I was dressing as Boy George and Sammy was David Bowie as the goblin King in the Laberinth for my brother's 50th birthday party. The theme was rock legends. Samantha got a green contact lense for it.
I coloured my hair for the 12 kilos down goal. Although I am hoping I haven't put heaps of that back on after this week. I have been dreadful. I have done the odd good day and lots of not brilliant days. In ways since I reached this goal I got off track. We did have munchies with Sammys birthday. And I have had a few fizzy drinks over the last couple of days. But, I know I have done bad, and the scales will reveal all. I am not sure whether to weigh in tomorrow or avoid them for a few days. Either way I know that I must get right back on track.

As I agreed to show pictures , here goes. This is me before dying my hair.

This one is after I did my hair. Just before I suddenly(impulsively) decided to cut my fringe. I used to attack my hair and make one awful mess. So I only trimmed that one bit. I don't like my forehead showing , and I hate hair in my eyes. So, maybe problem solved. This is a pic I took of me and Crystal a few minutes ago.

    Fringe! Love that, I call them bangs in USA.
    Oh 17! wee! Happy birthday to her.

    Hair coloring, cutting fringe, you are having a busy time.

    Eating over the budget. I know I have my problems there too. I usually weigh in every two weeks but did a test knowing I've been over doing it... 7 ounces up. So time to nip it in the bud. Add some exercises and eat less. I did some boxing to a wii dance game. I can't dance in time to them at all but boxing I can do and my upper arms ache today. So keep working at this, you are going for a healthy life and it is so worth it.

    First, Happy Birthday to your daughter! Second, don't spend time beating yourself up over those "bad" days; we all have them and sometimes slide backwards and put some weight back on. The important thing is that you have the desire and the will to pick yourself up and get back on track. You can do this because you know you're worth it. So get out there and keep working toward your goals!

    Happy Birthday to your daughter emoticon

    Wow you are looking good.

    As you know I have the same problem with stuffing my face. But both of us never give up and we know it will click eventually. We can do this. It is good we are learning about our weaknesses along the way so that when we finally reach our destination we know what to be aware of.

    First of all emoticon I hope your day was just dandy. Thanks for sharing the photos too. You look good. emoticon I have the same problem when I reach a goal with overeating. I am not sure what that's about, whether I feel I don't deserve it or that it is okay to "treat" myself for doing well but I can relate. Let's emoticon
