I have to ask, when you started Zumba, did you often feel like an idiot? I got a Wii Zumba game and every time I 'play' it, I feel like an idiot. Will that go away, or did I waste my money?

Yes I have goals for August. I want to work on my scratch plan and creating some good habits again.

Never mistake failure as final

Deciding what you want your life to be like is not hard. Deciding what you are willing to do and give up to get it, is the hard part.

I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

What you do and say is a reflection of who you are, so decide who you want to be and do it.

I entered this weeks 5k virtual walk and I didn't realize 5k was only 3.1 miles, so technically I've already reached it, but I want to see what I can do.

I walked the dog this morning, so I'm starting to get some exercise in again. And hopefully with all these people going home tomorrow, I can concentrate on my life again. It's amazing how fast you can loose focus.

It is good that we are all having somewhat a positive outlook to healthier, the scale may not seem to be our friend, on how slow some of our progressed are, Then look to our measurements and feel and look better naked is what we are to aim for, or how a piece of clothing just feels better on us. I wore a top today one that has been hiding at the back of the closet for some time now, Its one of the materials that you can not wear it feeling tight, i remember receiving this top as a gift, and i remember trying to put it on , yes the key word trying, it just did not work, it did go on but it was tight in all corners and angels , it just did not feel right to wear, it did not look good to wear. But today, it feels comfortable to wear and looks good to wear, It may be a size 20 but i am glad i am able to wear such top, as this top looks really nice.

I haven't been doing very good with stress management lately and in retrospect I have eaten emotionally three times now. However considering that the stress has been going on for about a week and a half, I'd say I'm doing good overall.

I am trying to stay positive and not chuck it all in. The harder I try the more I backslide. I had a gain last week and I can't explain it. I am making the best choices I can and moving too but the scale discourages me. I guess I will look at how my clothes are fitting and go from there. emoticon

This month i took my eating into my own hands, i actually even cook 2 meals for evening, different one for my hubby, since he too is a big eater, i realise eating the amount he does and food he does isn't going to help me loose weight, my husband is big but not as big as me and he doesn't want to work on it either. So instead on working on it together i am working on myself to better myself, i want to feel sexier if not for him for ME! yes me. I too deserve to be where i want to be in life. I have been doing really well with calories, staying in range, and wow i am on 8th day streak of not emotionally eating, amazing stuff, the progress i have been making, even doing my weekly blog today, i saw the progress i have been with my July goals. I feel alot better than i did beginning of the month all due to the changes i have made to better myself.

I pretty much have to watch it myself, my husband is a big eater. But as far as my motivation I have 1/4 left of the month to finish with a bang, so tomorrow at a decent hour I will do some walking and stationery bike riding. emoticon

Special plans here. My 2 son's their wives and my sweet grandchildren, as well as my daughter, sister and niece will be arriving on Friday and Saturday. All my shopping is done. The house is just about ready. Need to wash all bedding tomorrow. Menu for the next 10 days is compete. Calendar is filled in with planned day time activities. I am super excited, and a little nervous about indulging in unhealthy food.

Amber has a birthday on Friday and we're celebrating it at the lake. And we're planning on a vacation to Galveston in July. Other than that, it's pretty much 'play it by ear'.
