It was a wonderful dinner that followed a busy, exhausting day. Summer is a lot of WORK for us mothers out there. Today we had some friends over to enjoy the BIG!! HUGE!! INFLATABLE!! dual water slide/kiddie pool that we have. We had some additional friends join us who have been stranded at home this summer while their mother is working. It was a good crowd! We had hot dogs from the grill, chips, Capri Suns, and popsicles. (some of us had a protein drink...) The short people were all pleased.
And even in the midst of all of today's entertaining, I managed to escape for one hour to the gym. Good stuff.
Considering that today is day THIRTY TWO... I believe it's time to assess the progress that is being made. I wish I had taken some "starting" pictures. But I didn't. I wish I had taken some measurements... but I didn't. Nothing intentional- just a case of bad planning. At ANY rate, in the last 31 days, I have lost 8 pounds. I wish I wanted to shout "EIGHT POUNDS" from the rooftops... and 8 pounds is nothing to be ashamed of... I just wish it was 14 pounds. Or something a little more exciting. (is it ever enough?)
Today I weigh 211 pounds. I'm hoping that in another 31 days, I will be at or under 200. That's my goal. I've had many people telling me that I "look good" and am "changing." It's hard to see it from my perspective. I can say that clothing is fitting a little better. I am feeling more positive about myself and what I am doing... But don't we just want the weight TO FALL OFF?? Yes. Yes, we do.
CHANGING SUBJECTS.... Today's WINNER of the Clean Eating subscription is.....
CHRISTINA! CHRISTINA... who is a NURSE!! in MARYLAND!! She's gonna be getting a one-year subscription to Clean Eating magazine. Just for reading my pointless, random thoughts. How exciting is THAT? Christina... (yes, I'm talking to you) would you please email me your mailing information? You can send me a note at email@example.com
That's ALL I have today, folks. I'm tired. But tomorrow is another day, Scarlet. That, I can guarantee.
