Some REAL Motivation Now!

Friday, February 28, 2014

"Birthdays Challenge" is going well. I've lost about 2 pounds since I started, depending on what time of day I weigh myself...I didn't drink as much water as I should have today because I was working in a different building which would have made it nearly impossible to get to the bathroom as often as I do when I consume the quantities of water that I normally do.

My "man-friend" did something TOTALLY out of the ordinary today! HE PLANNED AHEAD!! His "1-year Sober Anniversary" is March 20th. emoticon I'm SO proud of him! He asked me the other night, "I think I'm different than I was, right?!" Oh my, he doesn't know the half of it! He's a completely different person! Anyway, I told him we should go out and do something fun to celebrate, maybe a weekend getaway or something. I was expecting the usual "That's too far away" since that's usually his reply when I ask him what we're doing 3 days before something. The response I got instead was "Let's do something the 22nd." WOW!!

SO, that means I've got 3 weeks from tomorrow to lose a few pounds and look REALLY good! Of course, he doesn't judge me the way I am now, but it would be awesome to show him a better me! (He HAS seen the "First Thing in the Morning Me" and hasn't run the other way...)

This time of year has been a bit rough on our "under remodeling" relationship, too. He's a basketball referee so his Fridays (and some Saturdays) are pretty booked. I KNOW God has a sense of humor because I am "famous" for expressing my displeasure toward the refs at basketball games. He's only officiated one game that I've been to (since my high school was playing - in a State Tournament, even!) and the friend I was sitting with thought it mighty funny that I really had to keep my mouth shut. I told him "I'm not yelling at you, I'm yelling at the OTHER guys!" I was instructed not to yell at ANY of the guys in striped shirts at ANY basketball games, they're just doing their jobs! (Yes, Dear! emoticon ) He's reffing another game next week that my high school is playing in, providing they don't slip up prior to the final game. It's a bit of a drive, but since it's been several weeks since I've seen him (and it's my high school that'll be playing) I'm going to go!

NOT looking forward to MORE snow and ice this weekend! But, at least Spring Training has started so that means the start of baseball season (my favorite season of the year!) is just around the corner.

Have a Wonderful Weekend, All!

    It is amusing about your expressing displeasure at refs! Oh, boy, is God dealing with something in you here?
