I suppose I should tell ya’ll what my word for 2011 will be.
Oh, come on. You know what I am talking about.
Downsize, that’s my word. In 2011, I want downsize my waist size. I want to downsize the clutter in my mind. In my home. Downsize the drama (and those who cause the drama) from my life.
I’ve thought a bunch about what word I would choose. I wanted to choose a word that was just for me. Something that I could use to encourage me, keep me on task. Help me achieve the life I am supposed to have.
I am so sure that this is what I want my word to be, for Christmas I asked for a Trainer. As in, someone I would PAY to make me sweat. Make me hurt. Make me lose the extra pounds I’d gained since Marcy died. Alex wasn’t too sure that I reeeaallly wanted a trainer.
But he got me on anyway.
And, man! My trainer is making me sweat. Making me do exercises that I am sure are going to break me in half. Making me hate the elliptical.
But I am going them anyway.
And I am DOWNSIZING.
Not a bunch, yet. But I am finding that I actually do love to run, love feeling like I am in control of my body.
Since the first on the year, I have lost 5 pounds (I am expecting to have lost more come Monday, as that is my weigh in day. I am working out 5-6 days a week. Some days weights. Some days Elliptical. Some days running. Some days squats, balance balls, crunches, and push ups. . I am really liking the freedom I have in choosing what I want to do each day.
I can’t believe I just wrote that I LIKE it. But I do.
And because I scrapbooked my ‘word’, here’s the layout. I used (again) Studio Calico’s Napa Valley.
Let me just say this. I love Studio Calico. But, man, I swear their kits breed, at night, while stored away in my plastic boxes. I have used this kit A TON and still have a bunch left. Total bang for your buck!
