I am happy to see you survived my first video post. I almost didn’t. It took me like 30 minutes to muster up the courage to speak on film. I feel like I sound funny and I am stumbling on my words. Then I remembered everyone feels that way so that made me not care anymore and then I decided to make another video describing what me and my Grandma did today. Here you go
What does this have to do with weight loss, says everyone.
From my perspective, I strongly feel that by getting out and doing “things”, whatever that may be, forces you into being active on some level. To be 100% honest, when I am out and about, doing things, experiencing newness etc. I am happier. When I am happier, I eat better, when I eat better I feel better, when I feel better I work out more, when I work out more I feel like a sexy beast that can dominate anything I put my hands on or mind to.
I’m going to go back in time now and talk about how I earned my activity points for the week, what I ate and what I did with my life on Saturday.
Saturday morning started with Part II of my Grandma’s garage. If you have no idea what Part I is all about then you can go here and read about it or freshen your memory. I found many boxes of treasures and hilarious finds. I will now present you with a few things that I consider awesome enough to share:
After going through boxes and organizing her garage (again) for four hours I earned myself 15 points in exercise points. I am happy I did this because I had a birthday dinner to go to that night and I was nervous there was going to be cake and I wouldn’t be able to hold back.
Saturday evening consisted of going out to dinner for my friend Marianne’s birthday. Here she is blowing out her birthday candle:
Going out for Marianne’s birthday was the first time I got all dressed up and went out into public since I started this weight loss thing. Even though I have only lost 6 pounds since the last time I got dressed up to go out, I felt like I lost 30. Oh the joys of losing weight and becoming more healthy. It’s really motivating actually. I just felt better overall. I felt better in my clothes, I felt like my face looked better, my overall attitude and spirit was positive. Everything was just BETTER. It reminded me yet again why I am doing this. A big shout out to Marianne for letting me steal her husband for the night and take pictures with him like we were a couple. It felt like I was the only single girl in a 50 mile radius from their group of friends so it was nice knowing Marianne’s husband, Kenny was willing to step in and be my pseudo man date for the evening hahaha
It is 1:27am right now and I am completely exhausted. I realize I haven’t spoken a lot about my points/food intake and I really need to make that a bigger priority (no pun intended.) I am going to think about a proper format for this blog to detail my food/exercise/point consumption to keep it super duper consistent with the main theme of this blog. I am continuing to search for the balance between writing about weight loss/food & my overall life. It all overlaps, really. It’s all intertwined and dependent on each other which is why there is a lot of focus and attention on things that aren’t hyper-directed to pure weight loss writings. Besides, would you guys really keep coming back if all my posts were just talking about food and how much weight I have gained or lost? That would be weird if you did but I welcome the commitment. In my humble opinion this is way more entertaining but I could always be wrong. Thank you as always for reading and I welcome you back anytime! I leave you with this….
