The Truth of Tuesday Night

 I am an intelligent person
I will control my emotions,
not let my emotions control me.
Every time I am tempted to use food to satisfy my frustrated desires, build up my ego or dull my senses,
I will remember - even though I overeat in private,
my excess poundage is there for all the world to see!

Well, I didn't let anything be my excuse to not go tonight to my meeting.  It would have been easy to say it was too cold or that I got home to late and just want to get into my jammies and relax...BUT, I had signed up to do the program tonight, so without me, there would be nothing planned.

So, despite the fact that I knew I didn't have a great week or try as hard as I'm capable of, I went.

I'm glad I did.....turns out my weekend of painting and swimming must have worked a bit.

Last week: 256.50 lbs
This week: 255.75 lbs

That's a loss of .75 lbs.

As for the program I put on tonight, I had the members do the Bed Sheet Workout.  I found it on Pinterest early last week and told them about it last Tuesday.  I told myself I would try it over the course of the week, but of course I didn't.  So, I gathered up my materials and made the 4 of us do it.

MAN!!! Was that a work out and we didn't even do the full 10 minutes, because I didn't prep any of us to come prepared to exercise.

This truly is a no excuses work out!  It can be done in 10 minutes, either sitting or standing and if a sheet is too much to handle, use something smaller like a towel.

Like I said, we didn't do the full 10 minutes, but we were all out of breath and now, less than 2 hours later, I can feel it in my shoulder blades.  I challenge you to try this one too!

So, this week, I hope to do this work out a bit more and focus on the food again.  Even if I can do well for a few days, is better than nothing.

You take my hand, 
and I'll take yours,
and we'll start out today.
For a helping hand is what we need to help us on our way.
The way to goal is a lonely road, 
we need someone to care.
Reach out my friend and take my hand, 
and then we're almost there!


  1. That's awesome that you brought a new exercise to your meeting! I bet your shoulders will feel it for a few days!!

    Way to go not giving in to the easy way!! :-)

  2. See if the small things count even when you think they dont.
