I have 3 to 4 more chances to work out before my trip home to the US in 9 days. If I've ever had motivation to go to the gym this is definitely it!!!!!! I know I've said it before but I am SO EXCITED to get home!I've been in really good spirits this week and totally motivated to eat well and work out hard. The cardio time at the gym seems to be flying by and my weights seem to be going really well.
I turned down chocolate at work today and I didn't even think twice about it. I wasn't even tempted.
I've been paying attention to my water intake and my eyeballs should be floating with as much water as I'm drinking. I range anywhere from 15 to 21 - 8 oz glasses every day. I keep a water bottle with me at work at all times. I fill it up as soon as I get there at 9 and by 12 I have usually finished 3 bottles. I spend a lot of time in the little girls room but at least I know my kidney's are working out too!
I've gotten compliments on my weight loss at work a few times over the past two weeks. It really makes me feel good when people who see me all the time notice. It is probably because I dug out some of my older, smaller clothes and am wearing them instead of my older, way too big clothes. But even my smaller clothes aren't quite small enough. It feels AWESOME to say that.
I've found out that my cousin Melissa has also lost 50 pounds since last time I saw her. We've been emailing back and forth through our changes and she's been a great support. She recently sent me a picture and she looks FABULOUS! I can't wait to see her in the less-flesh!
My sister, Jill, has also dropped 20 pounds in the last couple months or so. She's given me credit for inspiring her, which makes me pretty happy.
My Mom has even discovered she's dropped some weight when she went to buy her dress for my brother's wedding and needed a smaller size. Seems like everybody has caught the bug!
I've noticed I have two little knobs poking out of my ankles. I honestly cannot remember the last time I had ankle knobs. I welcome them.
My watch is now down two full notches. Thank God I lost that all of that wrist fat, it was one of my bigger concerns and a problem area for me. (*that statement is dripping with sarcasm*)
I can't wait to get on the plane and NOT need a seat belt extender. No more nervous sweaty palms for me while boarding!
Sorry this is such an "all over the place" post but you were warned with the title!
