Thursday, August 26, 2010

I haven't taken a day off in awhile and every time I tell myself that I am going to take the day off, I don't. I feel like I must continue.... I did take a shorter walk then usual today as it was misting and lightly raining and my leg muscles were screaming from a recent long bike ride.
I felt like my boyfriend was hugging me when I put on his big yellow poncho. Another beautiful morning!
I daydreamed and again thought of God and the strange child that I used to be. I was such a tom-boy, riding my bike and climbing trees and playing with the boys, but I had a quiet side too and often I would disapear into the woods to find a special place of beauty, and I would take out a piece of paper and write about what I saw and often I would drift off on a bed of pine needles.
I am so happy to find my old self.(the weird skinny one)I picked a bouquet of pretty fall leaves and brought them back for my 4 year old.
I had a funny moment when I was wandering with my head in the clouds not watching my feet and I walked off the sidewalk and fell beside the road and yes there were witnesses. Oh well whatever! At least it only hurt for a moment and I can still walk.
Then I decided to weigh myself! I haven't done that in like 2 months because I used to do it every day and it was such such a downer. I figured that I was safe because my clothes are a bit looser. I lost 12 lbs!!!! WOW! I am now under the 220 mark. It took two months of exercise but mind you I just started really working on the food issue 2 weeks ago. I'm still HUGE, but I lost like over two 5lb bags of sugar. (try lugging that around for a day.)
I am happy and putting that scale away for another two months.

I decided to step it up!! My arms are not getting a work out and let's not talk about my belly so my goal is to work on those areas 3 times per week. Sit ups stretchy band and small weights. WOO HOO!! I am so motivated and enjoying myself. I used to think that all this was work. I am used to taking care of everyone else and I am just learning that I am important and I need to take care of me first. I hope that other people learn this at an earlier age. TAKE CARE OF YOU FIRST and then you can better take care of others. I mean really take care of you. Treat yourself like you would your best friend. Treat yourself gently and stop the negative comments.......... I am soooooo guilty of those and still need to work on that.

Goal number 2 is to drink more water. At least 8 glasses.

Goal number 3 is to figure out my purpose in life. (that may take a few years)

Goal 4 buy some makeup and a sexy pair of shoes.

Goal 5 is to continue this list at a later time as I have some cleaning to do.
Gotta RUN
Have Fun Sparkies.
