Today was a little better. I did 2 workouts and outside of my comfort zone. My husband stayed in the room on his laptop(instead of moving to another room). I caught him watching me and telling me that they should do this or that different or that is not the right way to do it. I asked him a couple times if the way I was doing something looked right and all in all I think I was so worried about impressing him that I pushed myself more then I have in a long time. I am really feeling the workout. He said I did great & I feel good because he knows that I am really trying.
Well reading Steve's blog, this one in particular he mentioned habitforge . I decided to check it out. It reminds you for 21 days straight if you have done something. If you say no one day you start again. Since I am highly motivated by checking things off (I know I am odd) I decided to sign up and try it. What do I have to lose. I signed up for exercise and water intake. So far I have one dot for each. I know between my blogs, calendar and other sites I belong to this isn't necessary but with the way I am feeling I am attacking at all sides!
Last night I decided to Google more images of beaches and islands and came across this one
Yup it is my new screen saver. It has everything I need. The sand, ocean, blue skies and a body that I want! I think it is perfect. I don't see her face it is an image. It's what I want to do someday. To feel comfortable enough in a bikini to just lay out and soak up the warmth.
I put the last 12 pack of diet soda in the fridge. When I finish it I am done. Chris leaves me Tues. for a month so he won't be here to hear me complain of the headache I know I am going to get. It will be a good month of withdrawal where he won't be here to buy me any more. I won't be buying any at the market because the diet soda from Germany and the states taste different. Frankly I really don't like it or spending money on it. I know I can do this! I will get all Aspartame out of diet.
On another note I just finished read this book Firefly Lane.
The review for the book can be found on my other blog here. I know that this book has nothing to do with weight loss but it has such an important message for women. Something we need to be on the watch for. I don't want to say any more except that if you have time I would read this book.
