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.

    Maybe not yet a Skinny Minny, but defenetly no Fatty Betty ... You will look great on vacation! Those muscles just don't feel good. They look good as well.

    You're doing wonderfully, Patty! We've got to find you a "magic" swimsuit!! :o) Thinking about the all-inclusiveness of your trip...remember when the BL contestants went to HI? That was all-inclusive and yummy and tempting, and they really stuck with it. You know good vs. bad choices by now...and while I don't think you should deny yourself anything tempting, you know how to eat in moderation. And if you can't, then don't eat it. :o) Keep going b/c you're in that "zone" that you've been wanting to be in for awhile -- the "I want to work out zone". You'll reach that goal in NO TIME!
