Day 34 - Too much fun!


Jess gave me this pic the other day, and I love it. Jess is on the far left, then my niece Sandy in the middle, and me on the right. This was taken a couple of weeks ago when we all went out together. Jess and I are closer than sisters, and Sandy lived with us back in 1996 before any of us started having kids. It was a nice reunion, and I love this pic! I also noticed we all fit comfortably in this restaurant booth, lol.

I have been having a lot of fun over the past couple of months - more fun than I have had in a long time. At first, I struggled with it because I was told for so long (by ex) that I didn't deserve to have fun, and that fun = selfish. But fun has really kept me sane! I am so glad to have friends and family who are there for me during this time in my life. I am also glad that I am learning to have fun in ways that do not WRECK my diet. I don't eat or drink alcohol when I go out. The night this picture was taken, I actually drank THREE bottles of water, and ate a LUNA bar on the way, lol.

Yesterday was a very good eating day, and today has also been good. My schedule hasn't been 100% because of soccer lasting longer than I anticipated and because I also had a late night (or should I say early morning, lol). Dinner will be a big salad, and I've got a lot of water down today. I have yet another cute outfit that fit in 2007, was too small in 2008, and is way too big this summer. I was sure it would be okay, but no such luck.

I am starting strength and toning tomorrow, along with a whole new "commitment" to exercise. I figure that since I am really needing to buy new clothes, I could tie that in to exercise somehow. I am going to start rewarding myself for sticking to exercise. I figure I can squeeze out a little extra money for myself, and it's turning into a true NEED! Really, my capri's and shorts are all coming down while I walk! I don't have to use buttons anymore, lol! Yeah, it's helpful when I am in a hurry to pee, but not really any other time. I don't have a "real" belt, just some that came in jeans or pants I've bought. I have poked holes in them to make them smaller and try to wear a belt when possible, but makes this "pooch" in the back and makes my ass look bigger! I hate saggy-ass - and since I suffer from noassatall disease, it's driving me nuts.

I'll let ya'll know that plan when I get it together 100%.

Have a great weekend!
