Countdown to Vegas - 87 days
Monday, August 08, 2011
In 87 days, my darling husband and I will depart for Vegas. Our first vacation together without the family since we got engaged 11 years ago. This vacation will be immediately followed by my attendance at a very important conference. So here I am, three years and 40 pounds gained back since I was last truly active here committing once again to take control of my life back and lose this weight once and for all for me. what happened three years ago? An unexpected granddaughter that I adore, but is a 24/7 addition to my life. Like any new baby, she wreaked havoc on my schedule and plans!
So 87 days to lose as much as I can without being stupid. Being a goal-oriented person who does best with a deadline, I'm seriously hoping this will give me the motivation I need to stay on track. If I can lose about a half a pound a day, I will be able to wear some of the fabulous clothes I bought last time around. That would be awesome. I have also set a reward for myself at the end, a really amazing dress from Kiyonna that is red and oh so sexy.
I took my vitamins last night before bed as they make me nauseous. I put in about 23 minutes on the treadmill for a little over a mile this morning and then did a bunch of yard work this evening for exercise. Plus, I'm still within calorie range for the day. So far so good.
I want my life back. I want to feel like me again. Move like me. Draw admiring glances like I use to. Feel powerful and in control.
I'm working really hard on doing the other things I feel are essential to accomplish these goals including moving forward actively on my two web sites and all the social networking tools necessary to gain public professional acknowledgement.
It's my time.
