And I don’t mean my weight…I mean my Math class. This is the last week to work on learning the PIE – and we have two chances to take the Final next week as long as it is before March 4th and 11:59. We need at least 80% done in each category to get the final exam password. As of Sunday night, I have over 80% in all but one category, and it is at 70%, so that is my focus…Only you can’t really tell what those topics are by their name and how they are named in the Pie. I have an email out to my Professor to ask. What should I be working on?!
I did start going to the Gym this week and amazingly after only a couple of days, my hip feels pretty good. I am not going to say “I’m healed” but I can for sure say that my lack of exercise was probably the biggest factor in me being in major pain for so long. Seems like we would learn.
We are down to 46 days to Disney and 186 to my 50th Birthday. I have a short-term goal for Disney – Fit in my summer clothes LOL And a long-term goal for my Birthday – Be at goal weight. (105-110)
I have suddenly had an epiphany; I kept thinking, How do I ever think I am going to meet my weight goals, I have never in the past. And in that moment I realized, I’m not who I ever was in the past. The old me would never pack up all of her belongings and move thousands of miles from her “safety net” of all she has ever known in life. The new me is looking forward to the adventure of all that lies before us. Therefore, this new me has everything in her arsenal to meet these goals and she will.
I have not had a drink since Saturday. And that is not to say I won’t have one this Saturday, but the 3-4 drinks a night is not suiting me right now. The first night was the hardest honesty. The second night I felt like Pavlov’s Dogs; one of the kids got some ice from the fridge dispenser and my mouth watered LOLOL! I was thinking to myself – that is a not a good thing. So we are now on 3 solid nights and I am fine. In fact, I have started looking at removing other items from my diet that are not suiting me either. I am having a major issue with bloating. I think it is dairy. I tried to not eat any yesterday, but I caved in around dinner time and had a bit of cheese and dressing on my salad. Work up this morning up almost a pound. I am sure that is a combination of not Poopin and the new workout routine. It will adjust itself soon. Oh, and I have started using the time that I was just sitting in the chair scrolling through Facebook and “relaxing” with my drink to getting back into my bathtub and blasting. I need to take care of me. I don’t want to be a chubby old lady that looks all wrinkly and saggy LOL. I want to age gracefully and that means – making time to take care of this body!
I have been looking at paint colors for the outside of the house 😍 I’m seriously thinking a dark blue with bright white trim. I have spoken to the builder, and they said they do see some fading with the darker colors, but they did recently do a dark blue and white and will have pictures the first week in March to share with me. I was hoping to be the first, but no such luck LOL ALSO, I am looking at a dark blue-grey color for the main living space. It is so big and open I think we could pull it off. As long as I stayed with the lighter grey in the bedrooms, a darker color would kind of ground the big open space. If we keep the floors light, I think it will balance just fine.
OK – I just wanted to check in. I’m alive and still working on my goals over here. Would love a comment or two 😉 Just so I know I’m not talking to myself.
