New Year New You
SO...shortly after the new year I got on a scale for the first time since RIGHT BEFORE my wedding. It was sickening. That night I rode a bike for 30 minutes (thought I was gonna die) and then did the same the following night. Shockingly there was no pain...I thought for sure I would be so incredibly sore. Then the ice storm came. For those of you that know me, you know ice or snow or even sometimes rain and me driving do not mix. So it was a week of being driven everywhere. One day we stayed home all day because the roads were so bad. We were very fortunate in that we didn't lose power. Friends of ours did though, so they came over to spend the week with us! That first night we played a game on the Wii. The next day I wanted to die. Seriously, I couldn't even move my arm to use my computer mouse without feeling pain. It was insane. Fortunately, my husband and I already owned a Wii, we were just missing the FIT. I have been looking for one for probably a good 4 months. Then lo and behold the other day online I found one. I paid an arm and a leg for it, but since we got it last week we've been using it just about every night. I gotta tell you....watching my husband do some of the things on there is just flat out hysterical. He hula-hooped....now mind you I'm sure watching me do it is just as funny, but those workouts are so much fun and you don't even realize you're working out! So my goal is to lose....just wait....30lbs. I'm curious to see if I even can lose it, and how long it will take me to lose it. Because let me tell you....my mii on the wii fit is lookin kinda chunky....I'd love to see a smaller version. I have started eating better...taking my lunch to work, making sure we eat healthier at home at night. It is very hard though....Super Bowl, Baby Showers, you name it I've got one planned it feels like. Always places where the best options to eat is a veggie tray and other than that you're outta luck. But I'm gonna keep on keepin on....the main reason for my focus on weight loss....I want to have a baby. Don't get me wrong...I am absolutely scared to death at the thought of actually being pregnant and having my own...even though I cannot wait...it still terrifies me. I'm scared that if I don't lose the weight I wont' be able to get pregnant. I did however see a psychic sometime in November, and she said I was very "fertile" so I'm curious to see if once we start officially "trying" if we get lucky on the first "shot" so to speak. ;) I guess that's all I have to say for now. Hope my rambling kept you entertained for at least a minute or two. Talk to you soon.
