Two weeks since I’ve posted. I’ve no real excuse for not posting. Simply I just have not been motivated. I hurt my back two weeks ago painting and was in some severe pain for a week and then once I felt better I went back to touch up the paint job and felt the back pain again. I’m finally feeling human again. So it means that I didn’t go to the gym for two weeks, although I did walk most week nights, and yes, I skied last weekend and this weekend.
I admit to feeling like a loser at losing weight – particularly when I read many of my fellow bloggers posts about their preparations for mini marathons, 5k’s and bike races. I cannot do any strenous exercises for any length of time. I cannot run. My joints can’t take the pounding and my knees are shot.
I have been bouncing up and down with the same 2.5 pounds for about a month and I’m frustrated, but I guess I’m not willing to give up some weekend wine, and a nice dinner here or there. I’m watchful during the week with every calorie, but I ease up on the weekends. I guess that easing up probably undoes all the good that I do during the week.
But you know what? Right now I find myself in a place where I’m incredibly happy – despite weighing 200 pounds. I’m smiling all the time, I’m very happy, life is good my friends. I’m healthy, I have a good job, a great man that I share my life with, incredible friends, a dog that always puts a smile on my face. I’m leaving on a great trip in 2 weeks with 22 other people who know how to eek the best out of life and I’m excited about becoming a grandmother when I come back.
All in all, for right now, I’m going with it!!
