and it's a MAHHHHHHHvalous MONDAY!

Monday, July 08, 2013


Today I woke up feeling good,... strong.... got my butt dressed and got to Curves by 7:25 and got it done. =) Got home and showered and now thinking about what I can do today. I need to work on my accounting, but it gets SO hot here on the porch and today we are looking at heat index in the 100's. ugh. Then storms are supposed to roll in today or tomorrow, and by Wednesday,.... high's in the low 80's. =) LOVE that kind of weather!!

Part of this beautiful day is the fact that even on a week when generally I see my weight go up by around 5 lbs.. I LOST!!! Over a pound, GONE!!! I am thinking maybe I need to find a way to visualize what I've lost, because I'm noticing things that are surprising me and that I guess I didn't expect so soon...

Like my tummy. Oh my goodness... it used to be full all the time, or something, but now that I've discovered I really DO have a core, and I've been working it... underneath that fluff is some hardness and I tend to have better posture... all the time. I don't walk around with everything just hanging out.... it's become natural to *carry* my core... so to speak. Well some other things I'm noticing... I'm getting some *looseness* about me... my middle, my legs.... as I'm losing the weight, I expect there to be some skin sag, just didn't expect that so soon either!!! (And I'm surprised that I find this terribly EXCITING!!!) =) for this means PROGRESS. Not just a tiny bit that you can't see, but it's noticeable. =) I'm thinking pretty soon it's going to be time to try on those jeans again. I've already had them on twice. Can get them on and zipped no problems, but I like my clothes plenty loose, so I'm being patient here. =)

My biggest goal right now is that I want to be able to see a difference by August 6th when I have plans to be in Kansas for a concert. I will see friends and family who've not seen me since I was there May 18th for my daughters wedding, at my all time highest weight. =) So this will be an incredible surprise to all of them! I won't be sitting on the sidelines watching life go by, I will be actively participating! WOOHOO!

Today... life is GOOD. No matter what your circumstances, always remember what a precious gift it is, and cherish every moment. =)

Sparkle on my beautiful friends!!!
