Wussy today, yesterday a goddess

Wednesday, July 02, 2008

Hi wonderful peeps, My work computer has not yet been replaced but is limping along for the moment, fingers crossed as I type this......

Being offline again resulted in my going almost completely off program the last week, gained back 2 lbs......Its unbelievable to me how much the SP journaling, logs and especially the shared support, both giving and getting, keep me on track. I know I should be able to maintain without it, but I guess I still need my SP crutches. Whatever works, right?? emoticon

So my word of the day is wussy (which I actually had to look up to spell). At yoga this morning, my first day at the gym since I don't even remember when last week, my legs were actually trembling thru much of it. The lovely gray haired senior next to me was holding the asanas better than I, but it still felt so good !!! I hope the sound of my knees knocking did not disturb anyone.

So wussy issue two, Yesterday, I actually had to borrow $ 20 from 10 yo dd to put gas in my car. I am broke until tomorrow, payday. So I put ten in yesterday and I drive the whole way to the gym this am with my gas light on already. After yoga I stop and put $ 5 more in and drive to work with my gas light still on, $ 5 did not fill it enough to turn the empty light off. How sad sad sad is that..... not to mention humiliating to walk in with my $5 bill to hand the attendant. emoticon

But to end my rant on a beautiful positive note, last night was family night at my kid's summer day camp. The highlight of the evening was a kickball game, with families divided into 2 teams so dh and dds and I played on the same team against another kid parent team. I was one of just two moms who played, compared to the 10 or 12 dads playing and I actually caught a few kicks and got around the bases a few times, my dds were so proud of me. It was such a great feeling to not be on the sideline and to be playing with them. Their perception of me is changing, I'm becoming an active mom who used to play sports when she was younger, not the heavy mom they can't imagine ever being an athlete.

What a difference just this first 40 pounds have made, I am so looking forward to how I will feel after the next 40 !!

I hope to catch up on all my fave SP blogs this weekend, I missed you 'all. Have a happy happy 4th in case I don't get back before then. xoxo
