Watch out, here I come!

This morning I had a very rude awakening. My husband hung up a full length mirror and I got a good gander at myself. Whoah Nelly, it wasn't pretty. I am basically one of those Russian Stacking Dolls... Short and fat, lol!!

BUT, I have a weapon. My wonderful hubby came home yesterday and handed me my gym membership!!! So now I can start working out, hallelujah, praises and glory be. ;-)

I can't wait; I feel sluggish and gross. I have to buy a new battery for my scale so I can start tracking my weight again. I weighed before we moved and I was actually down to 165.5; I have a feeling I blew right past that and went up some. I've been eating quite a bit of salt and chocolate. I don't even have a good excuse, other than I'm out of sorts and still trying to get into a new routine here.

In any case, I'm excited to start MOVING, burning some calories. I'm putting the whole "cut out wheat" thing to the side for now and I'm just going to concentrate on working my body. I don't want to fail before I even begin.

Tomorrow we have Kate's kindergarten roundup, where they get to meet the teachers, make a craft and ride the bus while the parents are given useful info. So I won't start the gym tomorrow, but hopefully Monday our routine will start. Wake up, eat, get dressed, go to the gym, come home, have lunch, nap and then the rest of the day to do whatever.

So, this blog will soon return to a weight loss blog, what it was actually intended for! Hee hee :0) I look forward to seeing those numbers go down, to feeling better--healthier and lighter-- and to having more energy. WOOT for exercise!

  1. I had to laugh at your sayings...I use the same ones. The "Whoa Nelly" and the "Glory be"...must be the church background in us both.

    Sweet, sweet husband. He's a keeper!
