T-52 I am on track and on fire baby! 52 days til the New Year! SIZE 8's here I come!
Blogging Sunday, writing all of it down and putting a plan in motion… that has really sparked me to get my second wind!
Water 8 glasses or more: DONE each day (forcin' it but doin' it)
Exercise: DONE each day ( not lovin' it but that is not the point! LOL)
I am doing ST and some cardio too
Staying on eating plan: no problem... easy peezy!
I went out shopping yesterday for some 8’s as goal jeans….. not sure what brand to buy though since they can run different??
I like my Levis 515 in the 12’s I have… maybe I should get a 10 and an 8 in those?
They were on sale for 30 so not too bad.
ONE thing I will say for sure though!!!!! Holding up the 8’s and looking at them.. “BOY THE BUTT LOOKED SO SMALL”! LOL
I held up the 12’s that I do wear and it looks small to me too! LOL
Kind of a funny thought I had when I was checking out with my new outfit I bought the other day…. The jeans and green shirt in my previous blog….you know.
ANYWAY I was looking a a girl in front of me…. Probably 20 yrs old… thinking how great she looked and how confidentally she carried herself.
IT hit me that I was ‘smaller’ than she was ( you know slimmer). We were the same height… but I was smaller…..
And I thought… “I never carried myself with confidence when I was heavier… I just DREADED going in ANY clothing store and to be honest I dreaded going ANYWHERE!
I always said to family and friends “I AM NOT A SHOPPER!” I HATE SHOPPING!
NOW I am beginning to think it was just the weight that kept me from liking to shop!
That girl looked great and she looked hot because she seemed so SURE of herself… the extra weight she carried was not something that mattered at all!
IT is so ‘surreal’ to shop in juniors clothing now and pick up a medium shirt and think how cute it is!
The choices are abundant when you lose weight. I can NOW look at BUYING AN ITEM BECAUSE I LIKE IT….
IT IS ALL THEY HAVE in my size!
HOW cool is that? !!!!!!
I am doing it… kinda liking it just a “little” LOL NOT LOVING IT!
My 9 yr old son wants to work out with me…. Cool but annoying! LOL
My 19 yr. old son has been ‘trash talkin’ sorta ‘challengin’ me with his
“I bet you can’t do 10 push-ups”
“I bet you can’t do 20 sit-ups”
I jump down on the floor and show him I can do 20 sit-ups….. IN FACT …
I BRING IT!!!!! I DID 50! (smilin’big and feelin’ proud)!!!
He did 20 and stopped like he was dyin’ LOL and he is very very active and has been working out on his Bowflex.
BUT you know young guys.. they just focus on upper body, chest and arms! LOL
He doesn’t do any ab work on the bowflex!
ABOUT the push-ups though… I only could do 6 “MODIFIED” ones… SAD I KNOW!
HE did 20 pretty quickly!
IN all my gloating I did about my sit-ups and how I beat him LOL I told him I used to do 500 a day…. No kidding!
I taught aerobics 6 days a week at a fitness center back when I was 18 –20 yrs old.
I taught classes twice a day and with that and my regular workouts I did …. I did “over” 500 a day! GEEZ….. hard to believe now huh? (wink)
I lifted weights, did yoga, and taught aerobics!
My sister and I used to run a few miles a day but get this…
WE WOULD RUN to the donut shop and get a donut….. all dressed in our workout clothes and running with ease! LOL
THEN we ate a donut! HA HA!!
I am weighing daily for now.. just because my friend Jenny does and I like to see her weight posts.
I can now do the daily weigh in with a “HEALTHY ATTITUDE” and KNOW their WILL be fluctuations! THE old me let the scales define my mood…
THE NEW ME… says it is just a number…..
Use the measuring tape and how your goal jeans are fitting to measure success!
HUGS to my sparkfriends! YOU are the best!
I am pretty stinkin' proud of myself... I had to take a trip to my vet for health check ups on my English puppies and I packed my lunch! 2 bottles of water and some ground turkey patty and some chicken ... it was yummy...
It is just too hard to find options at fast food joints! The sodium in a grilled chicken salad at SONIC is over 1,000 mg! WHEW... forget that!...LOL
