Did a small amount of cleaning - mainly in the girl's room and laundry. I confess the only cardio I got was Saturday when a brief nasty storm blew thru and I was out taking down the bird feeder & my skelemingoes when the gust front arrived. I grabbed that stuff, threw it in the garage, slammed the door & bolted for the house - just in time!
And now....the reason I like Monday!!
FMM: The Driving Force
What is the driving force behind your weight-loss?
This is actually a pretty easy question! I want to look better & be healthy!
Have you ever noticed on those little kid beauty pagent / torture shows that the child is absolutely gorgeous, but the mom is a bitchy fat slob? Yeah. I don't want to be that mom. This is my daughter's second year of being on the competition dance team at her studio & I feel that the parents in the audience are also an extension of the studio. Not just in sportsmanship, either (which I saw a LOT of other adults lacking, btw) but in how we look. I prefer to wear a studio t-shirt, not a billboard!!!
And since I've lost 50 pounds and am maintaining that (I still have another 50 to go, but its tough!) I feel so much better. No more heel spurs, no more having to get up every 3-4 hours at night to walk around because my back hurts so bad, my knee only has fits now instead of hurting 24/7, my cholesterol is good.
I also find myself judging others less. I saw this particularly LARGE man on a bike on my way home from work one day. Before, I would have laughed to myself or something mean like that, but now I admired him for getting out & riding that bike! I saw a little girl this weekend who was easily half Angel's age, but twice her size - but that little girl was outside playing, not sitting in front of the TV or computer.
