It seems like for the first time since I have moved here I actually got out and did something. Even with Chris being gone.
Saturday night I went bowling with the neighbor and her husband. I was prepared or so I thought. With everything closing earlier then in the states you can't always decide last minute like we did. I brought a water bottle so I wouldn't get soda ( which I am now 7 days free of) or beer. I drank the water but we were hungry and they of course had little choices. So I got the cheeseburger basket. I took the hamburger off the bun & added only mustard, lettuce and tomato. I didn't eat all the fries but did douse them in hot sauce. That is my new ketchup since it is calorie and fat free. It also gets the metabolism going (so I have heard). I put enough on there that the guys started staring but I love hot sauce and it is so much better then ketchup. I have found eating a burger with out the bun is better but I am not a big bread fan so that may be why.
Today I went to the gym!!! Yup, I was in heaven. It is big and nice granted I wouldn't mind a pool. They have a lot of classes. Some free and some not. It was so nice to get moving and do something different. I feel bad not finishing the 30 Day Shred but I will still do it. Right now I am happy for the change. The Army guys come in at 11:30 we found out today so needless to say we will make sure that we are done before them or go after there lunch because they are intimidating to say the least. The girl I am going with just had gastric bypass so she has to take it slow. Getting to the gym might not be a everyday thing right now (based on how she feels after every workout) but once I get a car it will for me!
I am also going to get my nails done and my eyebrows threaded before Chris comes home. I feel finally like this might be alright and I am starting to become myself again. Now all that is left is tanning! Oh and finding me an automatic car.
Since I actually had to put jeans on this weekend for those of you that don't know I have been stuck like Chuck for the last 6 months I noticed that I have gone from not wearing a belt to have to go to the 4th hole!!! I have also noticed my bones (up by neck) not sure what they are called but I am starting to see them. I guess I never realized that I don't really look in the mirror from day to day when I have no where to go. I am starting to see a change and if I keep getting to the gym I might hit my birthday goal!!
Sorry this post is in right and left field. I just had so much to say!
