I haven’t posted very much because school has started and two our of three of my kids are having a bit of sinus trouble. The little one has gotten the worst of it, especially at night. I guess you could say I’ve been more active than usual, running around. Oh, not to mention sweating off most of the weight from this smoldering heat.
Anyway, I have some great news! I don’t really like to talk about it, but I am a high school drop out. There, I said it! Since I’m changing my life, though, I’ve decided to take that extra step and get my high school equivalent diploma (or GED). This will be one more goal I’m going to add. The class started yesterday, but since I had to take care of the baby, the lady said I could start next Thursday. I’m pretty excited.
I also want to say, that I have felt so much better since I began this challenge. I haven’t had a panic attack, either. Maybe because I stay more focused!
Sunday night, I did something I hadn’t done in a long time: I danced. For a couple of hours, I let loose on the dance floor. By let loose, I mean I drank a little and brought back dance moves from when I was in junior high. And by dance floor, I mean my sister and I hung out in the bedroom while Dillon cleaned (such a doll). I was very sore the next morning, but it felt so good to be twenty pounds lighter than the last time I attempted to cut a rug. I would give you our playlist, but I think I’ll save my embarrassment for another time. Hint: It included the “Cha Cha Slide”.
I have always loved to dance, but I never liked to do it in front of people. I want to be able to dance without being self-conscious.
I have also still been able to keep a decent eating schedule throughout the day instead of one large meal a day. I think that has helped more than anything. Oh, and I’ve been downing water like a fish.
A smaller goal I’ve decided to make, is to get below 200 lbs. I’m so close, but it’s still going to take work! I want to lose the weight at a slow pace, though. I think it’s better to do it that way, so I think I’m going to stay at a slow pace and just increase my activity, gradually.
Finally, I just want to say, I’m so thankful for all of the support I’m getting! My friends, family, and you guys, of course. Thank you all for rooting for me, it feels wonderful to know I have a great support system! Maybe that support is just the motivation I need to keep going. So, thank you so much for all of your support! If I could, I would hug each and every one of you!
