I am getting mentally prepared for an improvement in food and movement. (aka “diet and exercise”)
I have the hot pink workout shorts. I have the “moisture wicking” (aka “dear God I hope this sucks the sweat off my chubby form and makes me less miserable” fabric).
I think this outfit is going to be like Casey’s Mormon Underwear. Rather than reminding me of a commitment to God, this one is a reminder of a commitment to myself. To taking Alex to play at a swimming pool without having thoughts of being fat Mommy. To getting my rings off my hands.
Apparently they are helping a bit. Alex and I faced the HOE-tell (as Alex says it) buffet this morning and walked away with Activia (anyone know what that shit does to a toddlers … uh … shit? am I going to need a hazmat suit?), coffee, milk and bananas. The (yummy) waffles and (sugar sweet oh so sweet) pastries, stayed behind.
Here I am at ground zero of getting healthier.
June 11, 2010 – rockin’ XL shirt and shorts and hovering in the buck-ninety range.
Goal – lose 10 pounds in 10 weeks. (August 21st or so).
How – Toss Alex into the gym daycare for 30-60 min a day, while I make out with the elliptical. Use the free weights at home. Use the Wii Fit.
On that Wii Fit note – I have the Jillian Michaels 2009 workout – it’s okay but I don’t love it much – anyone have something they’d like to trade? I could send you that one and you could send me something else? Or just recommend something else for me to try – library might have it and I get it that way rather than having to spend money on it.
Okay. Here I go!
