Nothing makes you feel better than to do something nice for someone - totally unexpected and out of the blue. I got the pleasure of being able to do that today and it just set the tone for the whole day! After the insanely busy weekend, full of sheetrock and paint chips, I needed a jump start to happy land!
On to the sheetrock/paint chip department.........good God I had no idea that there could be so much work involved in getting a house renovated and updated!!! Geez......my poor hubby has been working himself to death trying to get things ready and we are still so far behind the 8 ball. I have to say that I am totally encouraged and inspired by our own Radiant Redhead Barbie aka Colette and her house transformation..........that chick could put HGTV out of business! So I spent the whole weekend hanging sheetrock, putting in a new ceiling, scraping paint and a whole assortment of fun things! The house is coming along great though and I can't wait to see the finished product!
On the diet/exercise front - I've done good. Giving myself a pat on the back........today I actually felt fairly thin AND I saw some definition in my biceps - YAY!! Now that isn't to say that my bat wings have taken flight - I'm afraid that they are there to stay but I do feel stronger and leaner so I'm counting it as a victory! Speaking of exercise - I got to the gym and found that my usual "easy" step class had been hijacked by one of the spin instructors - I love her but she is brutal in a step class..........she was trying to teach us some advanced step moves that included skipping and shimming........shit - yeah right! On a couple of the shimmies I heard some flapping which was a bit embarassing - hoping no one else heard - LOL! Oh well if they did I guess! Needless to say that I wasn't the only one tripping through the whole class.......a couple of the other girls were looking in amazement at some of the stuff Theresa was doing!
Last thing - after seeing Swizzle's post about goals I thought that it would be smart for me to make some and post them, so here goes:
1. Exercise at least 4X this week
2. Eat small meals throughout the day
3. Up my protein and lower the sugar/carbs
4. Say something nice to my hubby daily - he is working so hard!
5. Remind myself everyday that I am a Barbie
6. Journal my food and exercise (I am getting better about this!)
Okay gotta run and get my work done so I can get to the gym for spin class! I'm slowly trying to catch up with everyone and trying to catch my breath all at the same time!!
