But now I'm back on track. It comes down to the fact that sometimes, you just have to be selfish. Doesn't matter what your religious or moral background are, this is your life, and you better live it! So, I'm over the stupidity of others. I'm not going to let them throw me off the track anymore. They might as well be pennies on the rail because I'll just squash them if they get in my way! Okay, enough with the train references. :D
Today I have been happily sticking to my diet...the menu is as follows:
Breakfast:, Banana, Apple, Carrots (Raw)
Lunch: Peas & Carrots (Cooked), Tuna, Weight Loss Shake
Dinner: Sandwich, Chips
Might sneak in a snack somewhere in there if I need one. Also, woke up this morning and did 43 minutes on the elliptical. Will also be doing two 20 minute wellness walks at work today. So yeh, great day so far :) I've got rehearsal tonight! Weee! I love being in this musical.
I hope everyone else in the bloggosphere is having a great day. Thanks for reading!

So yeh, not the best of days. I can't wait to get off of work and take a nap...maybe that will help.

This last week I lost 7 pounds. YAY! Awesome right? Well, not so much. Don't get me wrong. It is great and I am very happy and excited. I am doing so well consistantly working out and consistantly eating within my calorie range. I also didn't want to lose 7 pounds. I just want to lose something. If it would have been 2 pounds, I can honestly say I'd be happy. And who knows. Maybe next week it will only be 1 pound or no pounds.
But the thing is, I've been here before. I've seen this weight, and I've seen a lower weight too. So I have these mixed emotions. I'm happy about the loss and my success in being healthy, but I don't want to brag or to make this big deal out of it.
And why is that? Could it be that I still have this urge to define myself only by that number on the scale. I could be smaller, it could be lower. And that is ALWAYS going to be a possibility. I can't define myself by these numbers. When I'm 150 pound am I going to be saying, "Oh man, I could weigh 140 pounds." That will be REALLY annoying. This journey is a forever one, and I don't want to define myself by the scale forever. So I'm stopping.
Sure, I've seen this weight before. But I'm not celebrating the weight. I'm celebrating a week of great consistency that equaled results, no matter what the result may be.
My point is that at some point we have to realize that focusing and defining ourselves by the number on the scale is not going to make us happy. And what is this all for if not to make ourselves happy? So while you are going to all this effort of changing your habits to exercise and eating healthy...you need to start changing your mind set too.

So after that amazing experience I want more!! That is right! My goal is to do 2 or 3 Sprint distance triathlons this year, and next year I'm going to come back to the CapTexTri and do the OLYMPIC distance! That is a 1 mile swim, 24 mile bike ride, and a 10K run! Woohoo! I am so going to do it!!!
I am addicted to this! This thing called LIFE! Why did I wait so long to start? I'll tell you why, because of this stupid weight. Sure it slows me down, but it doesn't mean I can't do the things I want. And I'll only get faster and faster as I shed the pounds. Being over weight is NOT an excuse not to LIVE! I am so excited to no longer be focusing on weight loss, to be waiting to start until I reach my infamous goal weight. I'll get there eventually, but something I will never get is the time I lost waiting. So no more of that!
Here are some events I'm planning on doing this year:::
