Good morning, ladies!!!
Ok, to say that I have fallen off of the wagon may be an overstatement, because I really have been mindful of what I should be doing – but I really haven’t done any of it this week!!! UGH!!
Not to worry, I have been reading the posts and they have motivated me to not give up!!! So, my weigh-in day results today are that I have gained… give me a minute, I have to go weigh/measure!!! Ok, so it is official, I have – drum roll please – LOST .2 pounds!!! WOO-HOO!!! I know .2 pounds is not a lot, but when I compare that to thinking what I had gained? Whew!!! What you can’t hear right now is the angels singing, the fireworks going off, and the sheer pandemonium that is going off in my head right now because I DIDN’T GAIN!!!! YEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! 😉 Ok, so measurement wise, I am actually down another .75 inches, which brings my grand total down to 3.25 inches lost!!! Miracles really do happen! 😉
Ok, so seriously, I am officially back OP starting this morning. I find that if I don’t take the time to track my points, that is when I am a goner, so I am going to make more time to make sure that I can get that done. Also, I have been using every excuse in the book not to get out and start exercising – so this week I am going to track every day, by posting on the blog, what I have done and for how long!!!! That should give me some motivation – because the idea of having to post self-created bad news on the blog is terrifying to me!!! I would rather just do the work the right way, the first time!!!
In other news, and VERY EXCITING NEWS for myself and my husband: today is our 14th wedding anniversary!! I am telling you this year has been a doozy – I really wasn’t sure if we were going to make it!!! We got married when we were just 19, and besides my mom, I don’t think there was anyone who thought we would make it past 2 weeks. We were just babies trying to figure out a way to grow into who we were meant to be and it really was tough. I sometimes think we hung in there because, besides the fact that we genuinely loved (and still love) each other, I think we may have wanted to show those naysayers that they were wrong!!! 😉
To give you an idea of what I am talking about, our pastor called us the night before the wedding to let us know that he would not be able to perform the ceremony because he felt that Jason had Donna-Reed-type expectations of what a wife was supposed to be and therefore wasn’t ready to get married. I was like “WHAAA??? We have been in marriage counseling with you for 8 months, don’t you think that you could’ve said something BEFORE the night before our wedding?????” I know he meant well, and he may have been a little right, but thankfully his wife came and performed the ceremony the next day – so crisis, averted, and here we are 14 years later!!! I have to be honest with you and tell you that I would marry him again in a heartbeat!! I really love that man of mine!!! 😉
I have the rest of the week off, so we will be going and doing something fun – Jason and I usually play vacations by ear! Then I will be leaving on Sunday for a business trip in Wisconsin and will be back by Thursday of next week. I will try to keep posting, but I am not sure how much time I will have or if I will have access to a computer – I will let you know!!! 🙂
Anyway, I will be posting a month long challenge that will last for all of July in a few minutes – so please stayed tuned!!
