One small victory for me...many more to come!

Thursday, May 27, 2010

I was chatting with my best friend at work Monday and unconsciously, I clasped my fingers behind my back.
I’ve never done that before...Rather, unable to do it. It didn’t dawn on me…until I held that stance for 10 minutes. I couldn’t believe it. I went back to my desk, sat down, and clasped my fingers behind my back again to make sure I wasn’t imagining things, and to see if I experience arm fatigue. I was able to hold the stance again...comfortably!
WOOT! PROGRESS BABY! LOL I’m freaking happy about this! So I am doing something right, hallelujah! Later that night, I told my daughter and she said that she noticed that I’ve lost a few inches because when she hugs me, she’s able to wrap her fingers around me, and her fingers meet!
Since this discovery, I clasp my fingers behind my back every day with a huge grin on my face. This small victory keeps me going and I want to do more. With that said, I’ve decided to set a goal: To be able to clasp my arms behind my back comfortably! I want to accomplish this goal by my 34th birthday in September. Sounds feasible, right? Let’s hope so!
I also want to do something nice for my birthday this year. If financially able, I want to have a “ME” weekend. My b-day falls on a Saturday, so I think I will schedule a few days off from work and look into booking a hotel room for the weekend. Or maybe a weekend at Hard Rock Casino...either way, I want to dress up and hit the town! Lol I’m looking for the right dress and heels…Not sure on the color lol. It’s been a long time since I’ve worn a dress….hmm, the more I think about this, the better the idea! I want to go all out this time because my past birthdays have been a bust since turning 30. Lol My worse bday memory: My 30th bday. A horrible storm came through and flooded my area. My car was destroyed. I was all dressed up and ready to party. Since then, lol downhill! Last year: Nothing. I was too afraid to do anything. I watched TV all night. Sad, I know lol. Along with a new outfit, I want to do something I have never done: Color my hair.
Wait..nah, highlights will be suffice! Lol I've finally settled on a color, now all I have to do is get over my fear and do it! Lol I don’t know why I am so afraid to color my hair, but its something I've always wanted to do. My daughter has less fear than me..the girl wanted to dye her hair purple! LOL SMH like that was going to happen! I'm all for self expression, but purple hair..unless she's a treasure troll or an anime character, no dice!

Well, off to workout! Have a great night fellow Sparkers!
