Weight Loss and Life

There isn't much going on over here other than weight loss and life. Life is a big huge undertaking as per usual, so I am trying not to focus on that and everything so wrong with it, but instead on the happiness my children bring me, and on making my body into the best shape it has ever been in.

I stepped on the scale this week, and well, it didn't make me too happy. In fact, I felt really bad about the number I saw. However, before stepping on the scale I made a vow to myself that I would love myself regardless, and reminded myself that I had made a huge step in the right direction. I joined our local fitness center this week, and I am back to entering my calories and exercise into myfitnesspal and I have made a personal vow to attend water aerobics every. single. day. Monday through Saturday, because I need that time for ME. I have gone every day this week. I will miss tomorrow because I am taking a personal day to enjoy some time with a dear friend and our mutual love of quilting, but I will be back on Saturday, aerobic exercising it up with my fellow water aerobic ladies. I love that I am the youngest one in the class. It makes me work hard, extra hard because I really want to look like this lady Sarah, who I met this week. I am guessing she is in her 70's and she has the most rockin' bod. Truly. When my kids are out of school Sarah and I are going to do the Eliptical together. If you know me, I hate the Eliptical, (because my feet go numb) but if Sarah can do it, so can I.

Make sure to come back here and make me accountable for my new fitness and food goals. I have a number to hit this year and I am going to hit it! As for life, I just got these photos back:

Each one makes me laugh.

I love these people. 

Like, a lot.

Happy Thursday.

I love that you're the youngest in water aerobics. You have inspired me to give it a shot this summer--or at least think more seriously about doing so. I am always so proud of you. You are one of the most determined, focused, persistent, awesome women I know.

Way to go!!!! You are awesome! Good luck with the workouts. You look fabulous already, so consider anything else a bonus. Total babetown! Your kids are so stinkin' cute! xoxo

Good for you, I have been trying to run everyday or do eliptical. Water aerobics sounds so much more fun.

You're amazing, and a darling gal! Love your photos! You're children are absolutely beautiful! Much love sent your way. xoxo

You and Leish and Gaye should all do water aerobics when she is in town. She loves it too! (And you will still be the youngest! HILAR, btw.)

...I seriously don't think I am coordinated enough. As you know, listening to directions is not one of my talents. LOL
