It finally feels like all my chicks are in order and that things will shape up nicely.
I'm back to exercising on a regular basis, trying to cut back on what I am eating and skipping the ice cream while hubby has a bowl.
Last time I weighed in at TOPS, the scale said:
That is a gain of .50 lbs, but I don't consider that too bad with all the holidays and lack of trying in there.
I have also started to do something new for myself. It may sound odd or strange to some people, but I have started to make an effort with my appearance everyday. Mostly my hair. See, the thing is, for the past who knows how many years, I have put my hair up in a barrette and left it at that. My reasoning was "I'm married, I don't need to impress anyone"
But the thing is just this....I did need to impress someone, just didn't realise it was myself.
I got my hair done just before Christmas and some new clothes and honestly felt on top of the world. I realized that keeping that feeling going would be important to getting my butt moving to exercise. If I feel sexy during the day, I am going to work harder that night on the treadmill to help get myself looking the part.
The other thing I have started to do was take a picture of myself everyday. Not unlike a lot of other people with weight issues, I have this total phobia of pictures. To the point that my kids could totally forget what I looked like.
So I will share some of the pictures. I don't have one of those fancy phones for "selfies", so I just had to do the best with what I have.
All linked up....are you?
