I Did It!!

I did it, I did it, I did it!!!  I moved that whole damn couch by myself!!!  I had to rectruit my step dad to open the door, but I moved that sucker.  There's a feeling of empowerment that comes with doing something you didn;t think you could do.  A year ago there is no way I would have been able to move one piece so much as a foot.

I went to step yesterday, worked up a good sweat, then went grocery shopping, came home and made lunch then hit up the park.  I went for a 30 minute walk around the track while the kids played at the playground.  I really love this park.  The track and playground are set up in such a way that no matter where I am on the track I have a clear view of the playground.  Luckily it wasn't crowded otherwise I wouldn't have gone walking.  Too many kids makes it too difficult to pick out my two if I'm further away.  My kids are good, they know to stay in the playground and not go wandering, they know about stranger danger and we live in a pretty safe area, but anything could happen anywhere.

I really wanted to go to the BBG's class today, but I am pretty sore from moving the couch.  I'm thinking I might do 2 of the cardio DVD's from FE.  We're going to have a play date at a friend's house after lunch and then the kids have swimming lessons at 3.  After that I'll be getting ready to head to Bethlehem to see 311!  Again!! Lol.  So excited.  I really don't even NEED to workout today since I'm going to the concert.  I plugged it into My Fitness Pal after Friday's show and I burned over 300 calories dancing and jumping and just going wild.  I'm still going to do something though.  I'm in the workout zone and I want to stay there.  Also I absolutely have to do abs today.  If I do nothing else I'm going to do core work.

I did cave a little last night.  I gave into a craving.  It wasn't bad though.  I had a Lender's bagel.  So I had a 140 calorie binge.  But that could quickly turn into 200 calories which can become 300 and so on.  I'm not going to dwell on it though.  And I am INSANELY proud of myself for not touching those damn donuts I bought on Saturday.  Oh, I thought about it.  I really wanted to, but I didn't.  I didn't have so much as a bite.  I split both of them in half and my kids shared.  They each had a half on Sunday and a half yesterday and now the donuts are out of here.  That right there is a huge NSV.

Speaking of the scale, I did hop on yesterday.  But I didn't weigh myself Friday, Saturday, Sunday, or today for that matter.  I normally hop on first thing in the morning right after I go to the bathroom before I eat anything.  I did step on yesterday morning though.  124.2 which means on the WW scale I'm 123.8.  I really hope that I can either maintain that or go lower by Thursday.  I would love to be able to finally break through 124.  I already had breakfast so I won't be weighing today and I won't weigh tomorrow either.  I can resist the urge and wait until Thursday.

Lastly before I wrap this up, thanks for putting up with my whining yesterday.  This is as much of a mental process as it is a physical one.  Physically I'm there, but mentally I still need some work.  So that's it.  Happy last day of July!  OMG, can't believe August is upon us!

  1. For me, the hardest part is the mental! Many times my hunger is satisfied but my "mind" isn't...if that makes any sense :)

    Congrats on all the NSV's!! That's where the "dieting" becomes transforms into lifestyle!
