Who are you? And what did you do to my husband?

Good morning everyone,

Ugh....I have hit the point where I think, "This isn't working, I give up" But I won't give up. Yesterday was just one of those days. You know, those days when I am just a little bit off kilter. I was busy and forgot to eat breakfast. Also, when I started to do my workout...for some reason...I was doing everything wrong. The wii fit kept telling me how shaky, unstable , etc I was so I got pissed off and turned it off after only 15 minutes into my workout.

But I am not going to let one bad day get me down. After I blog and finish my smoothie (Blackberry Peach) I am going to do my jog and some yoga. I can't wait for the snow to go away so I can start jogging in the mornings and going on all my fun walks with Harliegh. I would really rather chase her around at the park then sit here and watch tv all day. But unfortunately I live in Minnesota and we will probably have snow until May!

Speaking of May, I changed my goal date to May 1st. I still only want to lose ten pounds...but I feel like this might be a more realistic goal since it has been kinda slow going so far. If I lose it before then...great, but I won't be disappointed if I don't.

Last night, I made another vegetarian meal. Bean Burritoes and spanish rice...yum. I called the hubby on his way home from work to pick up some stuff I needed. While at the grocery store he called me and told me he wants to put hamburgers on the menu...I was a little disappointed cause I am trying to eat healthier, but the next words that came out of his mouth just about put me into shock. he said, "Hey, how about we try these vegetarian Boca burgers?" Yes...he said that! My husband who thinks he looks better overweight, who loves fast food and sugary snacks and only one month ago insisted that a real meal must include meat, starches...and veggies OPTIONAL. Seems like my healthy changes have effected him in a positive way! Who are you, and what did you do to my husband?

In other goal related news: I have been back to working on my story again! I am well over 100 pages now and still going strong. I also have to work on a short story for my creative writing class and I have hit a wall. So if you have any ideas to get the juices flowing, send em my way.

Keep going everyone! We have made it too far to quit now!


  1. You know, I think it's just that TOM, that's all. I also don't seem to do as well when it's my time, so I forget the yoga (because you're not supposed to do some of those poses anyway at that time) and just walk walk walk. I feel better, my cycle doesn't last as long, and I still get some movement and activity. I know it's snowy, but you can walk in place at home too. Silly, I know, but it works. My pedometer counts it as a step, lol, and it does work you out. :)

  2. Yeah, Nathalie I think you're right. And I do walk in place at home...and jog in place, too. I should get a pedometer...
