Birthdays Challenge...

Sunday, February 23, 2014

I'm going to give myself a bit of a challenge...

As the title of this blog states, it's a Birthday Challenge. emoticon No, not MY birthday, I've already HAD my birthday!

Starting tomorrow (yeah, I'm ALWAYS "starting tomorrow", but it works this time), I'm going to "refocus" on my eating/exercising. The reason I say tomorrow works this time is that tomorrow is my oldest niece's 9th birthday. I'm going to work on creating good habits (drinking more water on weekends, going to bed earlier so I can get up and workout BEFORE work since I don't do so hot working out AFTER, etc.) and measure my progress for 3 weeks. Why 3 weeks? My youngest niece's 6th birthday is exactly 3 weeks from tomorrow, which also happens to be St. Patty's Day. emoticon emoticon

My new Zumba shoes (Ryka Exertions) have arrived as has my Polar Heart Rate Monitor, so I'm becoming quite serious about this! I've been REALLY bad about paying for stuff in the past and then not using it, but that will end! I also bought myself "Rockin' Body" that I'm looking forward to starting. (Darn infomercials!)

I keep seeing family photos that my Mom has taken at various times that pop up as screen savers. I look like CRAP in all of them! Of course, most of them were not of me specifically, but I look fat and grumpy! YIKES! In my mind, I don't look like that, but reality says differently. Is THAT what people see when they look at me? WOW! Things have GOT TO CHANGE!!

Have a Super Sunday, all!

    Good Luck! I totally understand the part when you say I don't look like that in my neither! I swear there is a skinny chick just waiting to come out of her shell somewhere in me :)

    We all have that moment when it finally seems reality kicks in and we are ready to really make some changes. Wishing you success with the birthday challenge. emoticon emoticon
