….All alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days
I was beautiful then
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again
I’ve been going though a lot of memories lately and why not pick a song that fits, eh? Katie’s junior prom was last night. She was STUNNING and it made me feel strangely old. I remember mine and that’s just a little weird. One of her friends put this crown of fresh baby flowers in her hair and it was all done up etc. She was a princess…..
So now and abrupt change of subject:
I’m being a good girl and drinking a Nature’s Plus: Spiru-Tein High Protein Energy Shake for breakfast accompanied by an orange. This is day 3 of breaking old habits and getting healthier. Again. But this time, it’s actually working. The goal is 30-60 minutes of exercise daily, 8 glasses of liquid (no sodas or anything like that) daily, and eating right. I’ll admit the small handful of Chex Mix I ate throughout the day yesterday lured me into the depths of temptation, but I fought back. Obviously, I’m a little carb sensitive and need to leave ALL processed carb-loaded foods alone. Last night I went walking. 1.9 Miles. My right knee hurt and the bone chip floating around in the bottom of my left footie didn’t feel so well. Losing weight is NOT fun. I just want to state that for the record. However, I AM the one who let herself get in this condition and I AM the only one who can get myself back out. The good news though… the scale budged just a little bit this morning. Woot!!!
One of the reasons for getting in shape is I’ve grown out of the clothes I love to wear. I have some AWESOME clothes stashed away and can’t wear them. Yet. One of the things stashed is a mini-suit. I love this thing and can’t wear it. I’m hoping to be able to in the next few months. It’s going to require the loss of a solid 30 pounds though. Yeah… I said 30. Add that to the other 30 I would love to lose, but would be happy with 20. 50. Fifty pounds is the goal. Sixty is “idealistic.” I’m carrying around a small extra person that’s NOT supposed to be there. My knees and feet definitely feel it.
And with all this said, I must get busy for the day. The busier I am, the more weight I’ll lose. Yes… even cleaning house and yardwork burns calories. The only thing I really miss this morning is Starbucks.
