Bounce Back.....Goodbye baggage!

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

It simply is amazing how differently one can feel after letting go. Yesterday's blog was me letting go of some feelings that I had been hanging onto for a long time. It is hard for me to open up sometimes and I'm glad that I was able to do that yesterday.

Even today when she tells me that "you should drink more green tea, because it will help you burn fat".....I just smiled at her and said, "Your right, I will have to buy some".....mind you I usually drink a cup or two a day when I'm at the office. LOL (I then silently pray that I do NOT become my mother when my daughter is older!)

Today I really feel like a brand new person. I woke up and hopped on the scale and I'm down 4 pounds from when I started the Health Bet nine days ago. I honestly didn't think that was going to happen with Graduation and my Mom visiting I thought for sure I'd be up in weight. So that just made me push a little harder in my workout and stay on track with my meals. The one thing that I need to really pay attention to is getting in my daily water intake. I know that I have not been getting in all that I should be in a day. So that is my focus today. My workout was fantastic and even with my sore forearm I was able to do some of the moves with a 10lb weight! Felt great being a bit more at my comfort spot!

Have a house showing here in about an hour. I'm really hoping that it goes good and the people fall in love with the house and will buy it. At this point my whole family is ready to be out of this house and into our next home. I haven't been looking on the home buying sites as much because I don't want to get my hopes up. I know the right house will be there when we are ready, I just want it to be sooner, rather than later. I know, just like us losing weight, we want it all to be gone now. LOL

    Kim!!!!!!! I missed you!

    I admire your strength especially dealing with your mom and her comments.You have the right attitude. Off topic, but Opera's life came up on my FB timeline. It was a cartoon and it started off with all these terrible things that happened to someone as a child. In the end, you find out it was Opera. With your attitude and outlook in this blog, you are just as powerful.

    As far as your house showing, trust the process! If I remember correctly, you live in my old neighborhood. I just moved to Bensalem this month. Our house sold in two days. We got asking and they waived home inspection. The houses there are moving. I am sure you will be fine but I will keep you in my prayers that a good buyer comes around quickly for you.

    If you need anything, let me know :)

    Someone will have to have your house. Hoping it's sooner too. I'm glad you're feeling better. It's been such a crazy month! emoticon

    I agree shedding old baggage can be very hard. To move on you have to cleanse not only the body but the soul.
