WMS April 2012, plus other stuff

Monday, April 02, 2012

Well, here it is, a year after started taking pics in my bikini. I am down 10 pounds since that fateful day that I bravely donned the 2-piece swimsuit and took my picture and GASP posted them on the internet. For posterity's sake, and for some way of detaching myself from my body, I still keep my head off the pics. Also, I usually take the pics first thing in the morning so I have my glasses on, and my hair looks like a rat's nest. So without further ado.... drumroll please.....


And for the public's sake, here's a pic of the actual swimsuit I plan on wearing this year:

Other things... hmmm, let's see. Since seeing that 243 on the scale, and meeting my goal for the month of March, I have felt empowered and strong and want to succeed even more. The weekends can be rough, and this weekend was no different, except for the choices I made. Saturday night we went to dinner, and hell yes, I ordered a bacon cheeseburger and fries. And I didn't finish them. I ate until satisfied, and quit. Sunday I set the alarm to get up early and hit the gym. We went to a birthday party in the afternoon where I declined both cake and pie, although after discovering that it was cherry pie (my favorite!) I had two bites of Paul's. All in all, I'm up about a half a pound today after the weekend, and I don't mind it.

I lost a contest in a fitness challenge I do on Facebook. Previous month's challenges have involved some things that I couldn't do, I just couldn't compete against the others to come in first place. But March's challenge was a drawing, and the more miles you put in, the more chances you had. I didn't have the most miles, by any means, but I felt like I actually stood a chance, since it was a drawing, but alas, I still did not win. It was like the Mega Millions Friday night... I actually felt like I could win something. I'm a little bit of a sore loser, but I'm moving on.

We are supposed to call the person regarding a mortgage today, as in, calling to say "Hi, we want to buy a house, how much money can you get us?" And I am totally nervous. I hate making phone calls anyway, but now I have to wait all day too, because Paul wants to be here when I do it. Ugh. Which reminds me, I need to make appointments with the eye dr and the regular dr. Damn.

Well, that's all I've got to say for today. So far.

    You do look amazing! Cherry pie is mean. Totally mean. It's a fruit so you're like "Ok, this is a good thing." But NO! IT'S NOT OK! THE PIE IS A LIE! You had such good willpower.
    And I'm happy you liked the entry thing. I'm going to keep it that way. I felt like we were having people become front runners in the competitions and then everyone else was giving up. Next month is going to be C25k (the participants choice in versions) and you get an entry for every day you actually do your walk/run so there's not like a million entries. (Cuz I'm tired of cutting paper but shhhhhhhhhh about my laziness)
