A New Year and a new spark!!!!!!
Sunday, January 06, 2008
I can't believe it has been so long since I've blogged. I have to be better about that so I have a record to look back on when I'm a SKINNY MINNY!!!!!
I was pretty depressed around the holidays because while I deserved every last pound, I had an awful gain. I was back up to 212.8 last week and thankfully had a great loss this week that put me down to 207.6. I kept telling myself that when the new year came it was back to business. I have to tell ya, I was nervous because it is never a good idea to say "tomorrow" when you are trying to be healthy. It ended up working because I feel more alive lately than I have in a LOOOOOONG time.
My newest goal is to be below 200 when we go to the Dominican at the end of February. I will feel so good to go on vacation and go to the beach knowing all that I have accomplished. I still won't be comfortable prancing around in a bathing suit, but I sure will feel better to not have to HIDE all the time! My parents gave me the plane tickets for my birthday and paid for all the food for X-Mas. My whole family is going to include my brother. I can't remember the last time we had a family vacation. The food and alcohol is all inclusive so that will prove to be quite a challenge!
Happy New Year!!!!!
I am doing the BL challenge and that has also given me renewal. My exercising is back to a routine and I am REALLY enjoying it again. I can actually feel muscles now and that is a strange thing! I always felt strong but to actually "feel" the muscle is way cool.
