Happy Tuesday everyone! I originally started writing a post titled “Happy Monday” but got a bit side tracked. I apologize for leaving you for a few days, but it’s been pretty crazy.
Friday night I went out line dancing with my mother at Saddle Ridge and it was a blast. My body media band told me I totally kicked ass! I had so much fun, I decided to go back on Saturday with my awesome friend, Maria.
When Sunday rolled around, I was pretty exhausted but I still managed to get to church and decorate the Christmas tree. A big thank you to my husband for taking care of the weekly meal plan and the weekly shopping (even if he forgot a few things).
Last night I had my monthly meeting for the Sexy and I Know It competition and I was pretty happy with my drop in weight. It doesn’t matter if it’s 1 or 10 … the point is – the scale number is decreasing. I don’t know where I’m at in the competition, but I”m really happy I took part in the entire event. It’s truly helped change my life.
So Tuesday came in with a lot of drama. Without getting into specifics, by 8 a.m. I was fuming with anger and the thought of turning around in the work parking lot to go to the gym and burn some steam crossed my mind a few times. Simply put – I was livid. I didn’t let the stress become my demise though. At the end of the day, I headed to the gym and turned the anger into something useful.
In addition to some quality anger management, I met with Jackie tonight. As a goal, she’s challenged me to cut back on my grains. I know this is going to be tough, but I’m committed and I know I can do it. It’s just going to require a bit of planning in advance. I’m going to start working on my meal plans tomorrow.
I’m still picking away at my Holiday Bingo Card for the gym. I have about 6 classes marked off so far. Tonight I did Step and Abs and was promptly reminded why I hated the class. It’s truly just not for me! Tomorrow I’ll be getting up early to try out Yoga (let’s all pray I don’t hurt myself) and then back to the gym later for a circuit training class with the amazing Jackson.
I hope everyone’s doing well out there. I’ll do my best not to go M.I.A. on you again.
