My hands are killing me... 3 hours of conga playing and tambourine shaking has every muscle in my hand making itself known! It was worth it though. I had a blast. I met the other 10 member of the band... so you can get an idea, there are three in the horn section, three in the vocal section, two in the drum section, one at the keyboards, one at the guitar, one at the base!! The practice area was a small room in a garage... and I was sweating like crazy by the end. We have a show already booked for Labor Day weekend and I have to learn about 40 songs by then.

So this morning we are waiting to get the final go ahead from the bank to put an offer in on the house. Yikes! When they do that, I will be grabbing the kids and jumping in the car for the hour ride to the house where I will be meeting the realtor. I cant believe this is actually starting to fall in place.

The self sabotage stage is over...or at least under control right now. There is something I read over at Life of L that kinda stuck in my head. CONSISTENCY. If I am consistently exorcising, eating right and writing it in my new food journal (thanks L for that idea) and drinking my water.. then eventually that will become second nature to me... and the weight will drop. So my two favorite words now are FOCUS and CONSISTENCY. Today I am running another mile... drinking my 8+ glasses of water..and eating low fat /low calorie meals. This will be day 1 in my food journal....

Love it, consistency. That's good stuff. Not that you really need to focus on anything but your LOSSES lately! you've been doing great! You can so do this.
Are you going to count your practice as exercise? I think fitday tells you how many calories you burn drumming.
