Some BIG Changes in the month of August

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

First of all, an update on my fitness and weight loss. The month of July has managed to be a bust, with the only weight loss I've had is losing the weight I gained after the 4th of July. My weight has stayed the same, minus maybe one pound, although I haven't weighed myself the last week or so...what a bust! But it is my fault. I take total responsibility for not working as hard as I have been previously, and eating way too much.

Anyway, now on to the fun, life changing stuff going on in August!

My grandma called me up a couple of weeks ago and asked if I would fly down to Tucson with her on the 16th-20th of August. As much as I HATE flying (apparently I have control issues, and I blame it on my German ancestory emoticon), I immediately said yes. This is big news, considering the next tidbit of info.

I am going to start massage therapy classes this August. I will be getting about 700 hours of experience, have classes Mon, Wed, and Sat. I'm so excited I can hardly wait. Tucson comes into play, because I want to check out the spas and stuff down there and decide if I want to leave MN after I graduate for Tucson or not.

All that said, nothing should make me more of an avid fitness freak. After all, I will have to strip down to my underwear in front of classmates on a regular basis. It will be interesting, considering I don't even do the swimsuit thing... emoticon
Anyway, I need to get my behind in gear-I should have been down to 200 this month instead of 209. Self sabotage, and I know it!

    I applaud on you on going back to school & for massage therapy. I've been told I have very strong hand maybe I can use them to help people? Who knows?

    I ponder why I self sabotage myself? I do it all the time, things are going great & then BAM I lose motivation.

    God bless your heart for helping your grand out.

    Good for you!! Good luck with school and if you need to log any hours and practice I'd be happy to drive out there and help you out! emoticon

    Also I had to chuckle at the control thing with your German ancestory...I have the same problem. Except I love flying but I want to be a pilot and I think that is because then I'm in control of the plane. LOL

    Make your changes in August and July won't be anything more than a memory and a well-learned lesson.

    Go for it! Enjoy your trip and your grandmother, scope out possible places to work and continue on your path to health.
