You reap what you sow....

It is so damn hot!! It was 96 degrees here at 5 am. I did not walk outside this morning, but came to work early and got on the treadclimber. After about 10 mins I was sweating up a storm and was dieing to get off. I stuck it for 30 mins and felt like I had done 60 mins. It is getting hard to stay focused. I didn't have a great weekend food wise. I have a weigh in tonight, it will be what it will be.

I went to see The Hurt Locker on Saturday. Pretty good movie! Better then any of that blockbuster crap out this summer. Went out to my daughter's Friday and Saturday nights and had fun. I just seemed so exhausted this weekend. Mood wasn't the best. Of course, I put on a happy face. I just feel so freaking whiney (is that a word) lately. Life is really pretty good. Why can't I see it that way. It is so frustrating.

On a great daughter gave me some really cute size 16 skirts.....that FIT!! I still almost cry to think I can fit into her fat clothes!! I wore one to church yesterday and got all kinds of nice compliments. That made me feel good. I have to remember that one bad weekend, week, day, whatever, does not equal failure!! This is something that I want to do for a lifetime. Life is full of ups and downs. Just like and downs.

Going to guzzle water today and get ready what is sure to be a kick in the pants weigh in. You reap what you sow....keep the mood and the food real


  1. Great job and so exciting about that skirt. You are doing a great job!

    I vividly remember when I was able to get into regular sized clothes. It was an awesome day!

  2. Hooray for fitting into size 16!

    And it doesn't have to be all or nothing. Have a piece of cake once in a while - life is too short otherwise! :D

    Happy Monday!

  3. That is so awesome that you are fitting into size 16 - and got some new, free clothes to boot! You are doing great, even when you have not-so-great days - it's the overall picture that is important.

    And 96 at 5am? Ugh. That is just too darn hot.

  4. I am longing to be in size 16, I am so jealous:)

    Take encouragement from the clothes and the comments, you are going a great job, even in that heat, I couldn't cope with it.

    best wishes


  5. Congrats on the size 16!! Woo-hoo!!

    "Freaking whiney" is a phrase I use regarding myself on almost a daily basis. =)

  6. Good luck for the weigh in and good grief sis, we have been on this journey for a while now, a wee off weekend doesn't spell failure.

    Mind you, I too have been feeling really tired just lately, beginning to think I am about to succumb to a virus or something.

    Anyhoo, hope you can cope with the heat, get a half-decent weigh in and feel a bit better soon. Size 16 skirts are still a dream for me (sigh)!

  7. That's great about the clothes! I hope that made you feel a bit better.

  8. Good luck on your weigh in!

  9. Yes, Oh Yes whiney is a word and an action. I been there done it.

    Size 16 yeah! Can't wait to get there. I'm still in 18/20's. I'll get there and WE will get even smaller.

    Here's to a great week!

  10. I bet you were rocking that skirt! And yeah, whiney's totally a word.

  11. Woohoo! Congrats on the size 16 skirts :) Pretty sweet!

  12. Congrats on the size 16!!! Very cool :)
    Hope your mood perks up-you're awesome :)

  13. Woohoo for size 16!!

    Wow, you have lost almost 50 lbs! That is awesome!

  14. 16 was my best size - you are like my pants' idol.
    Very very good job!

  15. Big kudos on the size 16. :D and the compliments.

    Never heard of the film... glad you enjoyed it :D

    Goodluck with weigh in x *hugs*

  16. I need to drink more water. I sat down just now and drank the first glass of water I've had all day. Not good to do right before you go to bed. :)



Tell me what you think!
