So I was thinking about the fact I have been spotty on my blogging lately. I am not sure it is as big of a deal as I am making of it. I just have been busy and by the time I think of doing it, I am still busy or tired or something, something keeps me from doing it. And I think one of the things that is creating this feeling of guilt for not blogging every day is the fact that I put my day number on the post. So if I am not here for a couple of days, then it shows me that, then the guilty feelings set in. So, this morning, it hit me. I am not REQUIRED to put the day number on my post! So, I am going to stop doing it. I am still going to aspire to blog as often as possible, but if life gets in the way, well then I am not going to give myself a reason to feel guilty when I don't. There I feel like a weight has been lifted.
So, apart from Super Bowl Sunday's debacle, I have been doing great! Even in all the dang snow we have been having, I am cruising along! I am hopeful that my One-derland miracle happens tomorrow, but my instincts tell me I am not gonna see it tomorrow. I am pretty good at this guessing too. It won't be for lack of effort, as I have gone on to jogging in the morning and walking 2.25 miles at lunch, but my gut tells me my One-derland miracle will happen on February 25th. if it does happen tomorrow morning, I promise, you will hear about it. And not on blogger or Facebook, I mean you will literally hear me yell!
I was chillaxin' for a minute in my recliner the other day and kinda sorta fell asleep. I was laid out in my relaxed position and when I woke up, I saw this:
It really did hit me that I have made some amazing and crazy changes! I remember many days of making a joke of my huge belly by beating it like a bongo and proclaiming I was ripe, and all sorts of jokes. That belly, he isn't around anymore! It is something that you would think would be commonplace by now, but I have to admit, I am always in awe each time I realize the changes I have made. I think that is a key to being successful in maintenance mode. Keep on being thankful for the changes and never take them as "normal" now.
I am snowed and iced in for yet another day today. I have decided that I am going to assign myself projects today. First off, I am going to be getting my usual workout in this morning. Then I a going to take a second pass through my closet and get rid of even more clothes that don't fit me anymore as I have been slowly but surely picking up a few clothes here and there that fit me. I still have some shopping to do, but I will get there eventually. I am also going to work on the garage some today I think. I am going to have to figure out how to put my workout stuff out there cause Kathy wants our spare bedroom back now. And that is ok, I get that. But our garage is bad about being a catch all and my organizational skills are nearly non existent. but that is an advantage because that will give me something to work on today and if I am bad at it, it will take me awhile... haha.
Well I better get after the treadmill this morning. I really really look forward to being able to get outside for jogging when the weather warms up. I have even been planning routes to jog around my area when the time comes. I have lots of hills and stuff around here, so I should be able to get in some really good shape this spring and summer! Have a great day ya'll!
