I had my weigh in today at Weight Watcher's. I was SUPPOSED to have a meeting today - but I could not make it. My poor son was SO sick. I had to take him to the doctor again - that is twice this week. He just can not shake this fever. On top of it - he is having tummy troubles. I feel so bad for him when he is sick. This is hands down the worst bug he has ever gotten. I tried SO hard to keep my patience - I either had him crying or Susie (my daughter) crying. It was a crazy, hectic day. I think my son must really have me pegged. He asked me today if he could have ABC "ronies" (macaroni) in his chicken soup. WOW I had not even TOLD him I was making chicken soup! Do I really make chicken soup whenever someone is sick? I must - especially if HE noticed! I blame that on my Mother. She is the comfort food queen! I made it a bit healthier than my Mother always did though. I can't believe how readily I can get my children to eat carrots, celery, and kale! Oh wow - I got a bit off topic there - sorry. I'm kind of exhausted! So I went to Weight Watcher's just to weigh in since I couldn't make it on time for the entire meeting. Well - I was down FIVE POUNDS! HA! After two weeks of very little weight loss I finally got over that plateau! Next week I should get my 25lb medal - whatever that is. Don't forget - I started weight watchers about 3 weeks after I started working out - so I had lost 5lbs prior to that. That means I am officially down 30lbs! YIPPEE!!
Oh, and then there is this. Do you see what I see?
I have a visible muscle!!! I can't wait for the rest of me to be lean and cut!! I was thinking about this today. What is it that I really want? I figured it out! I want to look the way I feel! How, might you ask, do I feel?? I feel like an athlete! Maybe I feel that way because I used to be one. It doesn't matter WHY I feel that way, just that I do! I'm tired of my outside not matching my inside. I am so proud of myself for coming so far already! I know I have a long way to go, but if I focus more on what is behind me than what is ahead then I think it will be easier to stay the course! I figure it this way, the time is going to pass anyway - so why not put that time to good use!?
Alright, that is enough philosophy for one night! I had better get to bed. If there is one thing I learned as a parent, it's that sick children rarely sleep through the night!
Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful night! -Monica
