Monday, Monday...

I have to say today was a good start to the week. Woke up early, went to the gym; hit the weights, ran a mile, and then jumped in the pool. In the pool I worked on my breathing, and I do think I made some improvements. I did get a couple of nose fulls of water, but I'm confident I can learn to do this. And that makes me excited. That I have the confidence to try something new, even if every once and a while I burst out of the water coughing and sputtering. I'm still learning and improving...and I just keep going. That excites me.

I also ate healthy all day as well. Even COOKED (that is right, cooked) a healthy and tasty dinner of couscous, grilled chicken, and roasted veggies. It came out to a total of 350ish calories.
I can tell this is healthier than a microwave dinner that I might usually eat, because I'm way more full than usual.

Yesterday my husband and I did buy some Pepsi and Mountain Dew Throwback. These are limited time releases of real Pepsi. It is not made with high fructose corn syrup. It is made with REAL sugar. It is totally worth the 150 Calories.

It even comes in the cool old cans.

I'm allowing myself a can, if of course, I have the calories to spare.

It happened again today. I started thinking about weigh day. I started thinking last weigh day was a fluke and it made me really nervous. You see, this blog is the most transparent I have ever been about my weight loss. It terrifies me to think I might have to come on here and say that I gained any weight. In a way this is good. I feel like I've got to exercise and eat right, or else I'll
imberresed. But, it also makes me stressed, and that is not usually a good thing to combine with a diet.

I told Candy I was feeling this way, and she warned me that if I don't realize how ridiculous I am being that she won't let me use her 'asshole' anymore (asshole is what we have nicknamed scales in general). She suggested that I maybe do what she is doing and only weigh in once a month, or start tracking the inches I lost instead of weight. I just don't think that will work for me. You see, if I have a month before I weigh myself I think I will allow myself to cheat, thinking I'll have enough time to make up for it towards the end of the month. But...if I keep feeling this way I might start weighing myself every two weeks. We'll see how this Friday goes. If I have a loss this Friday I will know it isn't a fluke. Well, at least that is what I'm gonna keep telling myself :)

Today Candy nominated me for an award, my first one...the Beautiful
Blogger Award. So, I've got to list 7 random facts about me:

1. My favorite Disney princess is Sleeping Beauty (Brier Rose/Aurora)

2. When I was 15 me and my first boyfriend used to plan on having enough kids so that we'd have our own baseball team.

3. My husband and I don't want children.

4. For my 30th birthday I want to go kayaking in Alaska.

5. Sometimes I like to write...I usually write Fantasy. Sometimes it can get a little steamy ;)

6. I flunked my guitar class in college.

7. Right now, directly beneath me where I am laying on the bed, there is a shotgun.

My nominations for this award are:

and even though he is a guy...his journey has been and is beautiful...

Alright, so I'm thinking I might be going to sleep soon. Well, after the bachelor :) Have a good night all. I hope your start of the week was a good one, and if not, just kick butt tomorrow.
