Can you believe we are almost a 4th of the way through the year already?
I thought I would do a little update on how I am doing on all my goals for the year.
Cause I am really focused on them.
I am really eating well and working out 4ish days a week.
My body feels so much better when I put good food into it.
I have occasional cheat days and I am nearly always hungry but I still feel better.
But I read somewhere that you shouldn't fear hunger, so I don't.
There are worse things than being hungry.
(I know someone is going to comment about the 6 small meals helping to keep you full. I do that. It's not working. And I eat lots of fiber and protein. I am just hungry!)
The scale isn't moving much, but I am to the point of really exercising for health and not for a bikini body.
Cause, let's face it, mama ain't never wearing one of those again...
I am extremely proud of how I am doing on the whole "don't care so much what others think."
I don't know if it is just me getting older and more comfortable with myself,
but I have really made changes here.
And it is so freeing!
My feelings don't get hurt if someone doesn't call me back.
I don't read into things.
I am me.
And I love me!
I have a little work to do on being a better friend.
I have missed lots of book clubs and Mom's nights out.
But I am blaming sickness and fevers and a husband who is slammed at work on this one.
Totally not my fault.
I have made dinner for a fellow preschool mom who was mired down in sickness.
And have sent random cards.
And took banana bread to a neighbor.
So I am trying.
(tooting own horn here)
I haven't really stepped out of my comfort zone yet.
We went dancing last weekend and I danced with abandoned.
And I am NOT a good dancer.
Does that count?
Or the fact that I ran my first under 10 minute mile?
Maybe that counts?
I still have no patience.
And I still don't like water.
And I still haven't done something just for me yet.
But I am kinda diggin' hanging with my family right now.
Haven't really felt the urge yet.
And that's where I am a quarter of the way in.
