I am always making little sound effects! I love noise, I guess, especially quirky noises.
Today was a good day, finally! It's been an odd week, but I think having a massage last night reset my energy :) I did have some bizarro things still happen today, but I guess it was more how I dealt with them that counts.
Also, I had a person, who has not said anything about my weight say, "WOW! You have really lost weight!!" That was AWESOME :))) You know, I felt pretty today. Do you have that happen to you? Where you just feel that way more particularly on one day? That was my day today! It certainly helped that I was wearing a pair of black (always slimming) courdoroys--that I could not wear last spring-- and a pretty shirt!
I have a couple of goals in mind right now. This may not be realistic, but I REALLY want to weigh under 200, which is 18 pounds away. I want this to happen by the time I go to Vegas to do my half-marathon, which is the first Sunday of December, so that means that I have 9 weigh-ins left between 218 (last Monday) and that Sunday. That's somewhat of a pushy goal, as I would need to lose 19 pounds in that time frame. SO, I won't be heartbroken if I don't make it, but I DEFINITELY want to be under 200 by the new year, so that's 15 more weigh-ins!!! I know I can do that, and with that goal in mind, I know that I will have more focus and motivation during Hallogivingmas time!!
Another goal that I am starting up in October...I want to start lifting weights again. I have a great program that I know, and I just read the Oxygen magazine that had LOTS of helpful tips!! So, I want to lift weights at least two times a week to start, and two times a week I want to do a medicine ball, Hula hoop, jump rope routine. That I will call medhulump, just kidding! I am planning out exactly what I will be doing and WHEN I will be doing it. I am making up an October exercise calendar, as I will also have 4 times of week cardio, which will be incorporated into those weightlifting days, too!
