Well I’m not going out with a bang like I had hoped too. I wanted really to lose these last 10 lbs but they are staying glued on. Maybe it’s muscle I’m building up, I don’t know I just know that the scale didn’t move this week it’s still sitting at 178.4. Now I also have my TOM so at least it didn’t go up. I have worked my a** off this week and I haven’t had anything super bad for me but I also haven’t had the rainbow of veggies and fruits I should but that also takes money so if it’s green, red I eat it, I can afford that. The other colored stuff costs an arm and leg and really I’d rather be warm so will put the money into the wood/coal and eat my salads with cubes and tomatoes. I did eat a mixed green salad this week. I usually just buy the ice-berg mix and add spinach to it but this week in our basket of goodies from Ruby Ministries we got a bin of mixed greens. Looks like dandelion greens in there and purple stuff and some really weird stuff but I ate it and it tasted awesome. There’s enough for at least another huge salad so guess what I’m eating for lunch today.
I haven’t been reading my book, I’m back to the school bus manual so that I am prepared for Tuesday’s test. It’s hard to pick and chose at times but since I have got to pass this test it’s a bit more important then life style changes. Then I can get to driving bus and being able to afford a few more colors in the rainbow.
I have visited you all at least once this week but I’m sorry I haven’t been there more. Hopefully this weekend I can catch up a bit but no promise yet.
There’s only one week left guys. Are your outfits going to fit the way you want them too or like me you have a bit more work to do? I hope you all did stellar and one day so will I. Right now it’s enough for me to just make it day to day getting everything I have to get done. I will be putting on my dress for you all next week and showing you what I have done. It didn’t go on at all when I started this challenge so we’ll see just where it goes and how it fits. Christmas is still 2 weeks to go so my TOM will be over and maybe a couple more pounds can leave too before I surprise Jim with it Christmas morning. What do you think he’ll say…?…he’s not a man of many words, at least not the romantic or the compliment kind.
So there my friends is my update. Nothing stellar, in fact it’s been awhile since I’ve had a stellar week. I’m holding on, hanging in there, working at this and a snail could pass me up but I’m determined, I will be 50 this April and I WILL BE!!! I will be fit, happy and healthy, ready to hit the 2nd part of my life running. Literally running, that is one of my new years goals, to run. To be a real runner. I can do it, I know I can.
Take care everyone and have a blessed and super totally awesome weekend.
