Had another great day yesterday. Did my workouts, and food was great. The sun was shining and the weather had warmed up a bit. Hubby got home early and we all headed outside to start getting the gardens ready for the spring planting. I cleaned up trash that had blown in all winter long.. hubby built fence.. the girls chased the dog... ahhhhhhhh I love spring. I worked up a great sweat and was excited that I felt so good and achieved so much.. yet again!
Yesterday hubby told me that my SIL fessed up and admitted that she did not weigh 160 (like her drivers license stated), but in fact weighed 190. Hubby says he thinks she is still fudging it.. but whatever. In a quick panic I asked him if he was telling his brother how much I weighed... he said "NO.. of course not. I just told him how much you've been working out and that you've lost alot of weight already". That made me feel great... Hubby's brother asked why I wasn't doing *Curves* like his wife was doing (my SIL). Hubby said "Everyone is different, and my wife like to work out harder." Now, I don't have anything against *Curves*. I think it is awesome that someone finally opened a gym to get woman out of the house and into a place where they are comfortable working out. I went to the one in town and tried it out. I didn't even break a sweat... and if you read my last entry you know that there is no way that would cut it for me!! So.. SIL is doing it.. and I'm doing it my way... we'll see who looks better in June! LOL I'm so competitive!
Hubby asked me to start teaching him Tae Kwon Do , so last night was his first lesson. It went better then I expected. If he keeps it up he could be really good. It was kinda fun being his teacher.... but I was also his target and I got my fill of kicks to the thigh while he was practicing. Oh well... wait till its my turn!!
As every day goes by, it sinks in a little more that this is going to be a looooooong trip. That I'm not going to suddenly wake up a size 7, perfectly shaped model. That I'm never going to be able to eat whatever I want to. That this is going to be something I have to do every day of my life.... and believe it or not... I am comforted by that. This change is something that will be around for the rest of my life. This body that is slowly (sometimes VERY slowly) changing for the better, the better eating habits , the daily exercise, the daily feel good vibe.... is going to be around for a long time. I may fall once in a while.. I'm only human.. but I will always get back up. My mind is where it should be... now if I can only keep it there!
Today is Tae Bo Extreme w/step again...
Have a Blessed Day
