So much is happening and time is flying so fast. I am having a hard time keeping up, but doing it anyway.
We are getting ready for our big family trip to Colorado for our oldest sons wedding. They are getting married at the Denver Bronco's Stadium, so it's quite the ta-do! So many things we have to do to get ready. Hubby and I are flying with our other son, daughter and 2 grand babies (2 1/2 years old & 8 months). So I'm packing, mailing stuff and shopping to get ready.
Plus still super focused on my health. Lots of time in the gym and exercising! Also working full time! Whew!
Some really cool things are happening...
I finally hit a big one!!! I now weigh 226. I have not been at this weight since I moved back to Oregon 18 years ago. The friends I have now, have never seen me this "thin"!
Cross Over to New Intensity
All of a sudden I've cross over to new intensity. Working harder at the gym and pushing myself with all the exercise I do. Plus I've dropped my calories about 400-500 per day and I'm not even hungry. I am really satisfied, have a ton of energy and it's working for me! No cravings for sweets or salty things. Now I crave chicken, veggies and fruit.
Other People's Clothes
Went to my daughters house the other day. She wanted me to try on some of her clothes that she wore after she had her babies. I tried them on and they fit. Size LARGE. She said some of the things were purchased in the "JUNIOR" section of the store. I went home with a load of her clothes. She said it was so weird that I was shopping for "her" closet. I loved it!!!
Then yesterday I was complaining to my hubby that my gym shorts were too big! They were hanging off of my body and looked awful! He gave me a pair of his that he's not wearing anymore and they FIT!!! Men's size medium. I used to be able to only find my shorts at the men's department. I could only fit into men's size 2x or larger. Whoo Hoo!!!!
Sore from my Workout on Wednesday
I am so sore from my workout on Wednesday that I can hardly move. Well I can move, except for when I first get up. Getting out of a chair or the bed is really hard. But I'm still doing my workouts everyday and loving it!!!
Things are really fun! I love this new lifestyle. Seriously everyday there is something new I learn about myself, or something new I get to experience because I have the energy or the ability to do it. I truly feel like a little kid, I'm trying new things, exploring the world, reaching out to touch things instead of wondering what they feel like.
Not stuck in my body anymore!!! I'm LOVING IT!!!!
How about you.....Are you exploring this world and learning new things?
