I only have 10 minutes to write a quick post, but I had to share. Yesterday was a great day for me and here is why:
We did the blog tour and it went really well. Hopefully those that participated loved it, and those that read the posts felt inspired! I’ll do it again soon.
I got a free pedometer!! I almost bought one the other day, but didn’t end up buying it . And now I have one!! Woo Hoo!
I got a free car wash! Rett from work was so kind and washed our team’s cars. Wow, what a great guy and he was so speedy!! Now I just need to clean the inside (bad!).
I wore a pair of shorts that I haven’t been able to wear for about a year!
I wore a really cute new top that I bought over the weekend that was a size smaller than I’ve been wearing. It’s a top that is way out of my comfort zone usually, but I was brave. At one point during the day I was thinking that so and so hadn’t noticed it, and the thought that followed that was – “Does it matter?”. What was so cool about that was it was a totally unconscious thought, so that means my head is turning around!!
I went for a walk/jog with Willow by myself and pushed myself. It felt great and we did two miles (which I know thanks to my pedometer). And Willow did really good at not running all around me and pulling on the leash.
I weighed in and lost 4.4lbs and hit 30.4lbs lost!! This is really big for me. I’m about to break the bearer of 230 where I usually get stuck. Not this time, I’m busting through it!
I got some new shoes for hiking, and I plan to wear them out this summer!
And last but not least, I got to spend the evening with my hubby and that was really fun!!
Lots of good things, I just had to share! Someone asked me today why I struggle so bad sometimes? I don’t really know. I think I just let my head get in my way. But right now, I’m not struggling at all and I plan to just keep on rockin’ it!! I think the biggest thing for me is to make sure not to compare myself to others and their success, or to compare my success to theirs. This isn’t a contest, we are all running at our own pace and that’s as it should be. As my WW leader, Kris, says – better your own best and encourage others to do the same. So that’s my encouragement to you – Better your best!
I’m headed out of town for the weekend, and will be back on Monday. Have a great Memorial day and I look forward to catching up on all my favorite blogs – and maybe finding a few new ones to follow.
One last thing, I’m thinking of doing a contest on my 100th post (as I am losing 100lbs), which is coming up in about 7 posts. I’m going to do a drawing for a blog makeover. I have a really fun program I use from Stampin’ Up! to design my blog backgrounds and headers, and I would love to make one for you! So, I will let you know when it is my 100th post, and on that day if you leave me a comment then your name will go in the drawing. My disclaimer is this: I do it for fun, I am not a professional, but I hope we’ll create a look that is personalized to you and that you’ll love!
Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!
