This week I actually displayed... willpower. It was very strange. Almost like an out of body experience. I'm usually quick to jump on the nearest Mountain Dew, chocolate, or opportunity to eat fried food. I'm happy to report I resisted many of those this week. I also drank lots of water.
My weight loss for this week is 1 pound. I had hoped for more but a pound is a pound. The scale is still moving in the right direction. If I actually start doing regular work outs and harness this new found willpower, the scale will continue to be my friend.
This week, Christie challenged us to a photo essay. Without further ado, here we go!
Someone or something that inspires me:
No, I don't have some weird foot fetish. These feet are very special feet belonging to Big One and Little One. Not to be all mushy, but the kiddos are my inspiration for this whole weight loss/getting healthy movement. A few years ago, our friend's dad passed away. It scared me to think we could leave our kids way too early if we didn't get our act together. This time I'm actually going to stick with it so we can be a healthy family!
Something that I love to do
It's tough to tell, but Big One is actually dancing with his beloved duck blankie in this picture. One of my favorite things to do is dance with the kiddos. It's my sneaky way of getting in at least a little exercise. We really get moving and Big One loves me to hold him while I dance which adds 36 pounds of resistance!
Something that makes me crazy:
My son's room! This is a typical scene from his pit. The barn toy box is usually in the middle of the room surrounded by nearly every single toy he owns. I feel a mass cleaning and thinning of the toys coming on!
Something healthy in my life:
My trusty glass of ice water! Not the prettiest picture but you get the point!
