The weight loss countdown begins and random thoughts from weekend

Monday, January 31, 2011

I have started a weight loss goal countdown ticker on FB to keep me motivated to continue with my fitness program. I have it set for my 43 birthday next February, so that gives me a year to reach my goal.

I got the call that I have been accepted to participate in the study on depression. I start on Wednesday and it will be interesting to see if I lost any more weight this past week. I also got invited to attend a women’s retreat with 40 women from our small church this Friday through Saturday afternoon. It should be a fun and uplifting time, and we have been asked to bring sweets. I am going to bring fruit salad.

I was trying to remember the last time I got dressed up for my husband, and I honestly could not remember. DH is a good man, we have had our ups and downs, and he has always been there for me when it matters the most. I decided to do something nice for myself and for him and made a nice dinner. While it was cooking, I went and took a bath and even shaved my legs. Then I picked out a skirt and blouse and fixed my hair, put on makeup and heels! He was surprised when he saw me, then DH helped me get our DS a bath and it was a nice dinner date at home. I want to do this more often! emoticon

    Shack ... wow ... you left the Duck at a loss for words. Doesn't happen often.

    But, you have inspired the Duck once again ... the realization that you hadn't made an effort to dress up for yourself ... let alone your husband in awhile and then took action on it made the duck's heart flutter! I can think of nothing more heart-warming than to have your DH take note of your efforts, help you with the li'l one and then share a romantic evening alone!

    ... and it's not even valentines day, yet!
