Day 09- Something you’re proud of in the past few days.

I am proud that I have recognized that I am off course on my plan for eating and exercising and that I cannot continue to the use excuse just a couple more days then I will get full back on the program.

I should know from last time that doesn't work. Just because I am to crazy right now to get back on full monitoring and tracking of my food (weighing it etc) does not mean that I can go nuts. I should have a basic concept of healthy foods and amounts to get back on course. Thus last night I made the decision to make my quick thai salad and then this morning I threw together a veggie tray for lunch. Sure I don't know exactly how many calories but I also know that it's not crazy and have a basic concept.

I am also proud that I went home last night and made the decision NOT to go the gym because I was zonked! But what makes me proud was the decision and sticking to the decision to go home play one game of Towers of Madness then go to bed - no TV or movies. I mean I have my iPad2 which I load my shows on to if I am going to watch them then stick to watching them while working out!

"If you don't have enough time. Stop watching TV"

"Stop Over Analyzing life is SIMPLE"

I am proud that I am starting to tackle some stuff at work that is scaring me and not letting the fear of it stop me from going forward.

Yea me! and tonight I will be heading to the gym because I want to!

Day 08- Short term goals for this month and why.

My short term goal this month surrounds the number 21 times!

I need to get back to the gym and my goal this month is 21 times which is very easy only 5 days a week which is completely doable.

I need to get back on track I am almost a year from where I started and I am still in a better position then I was last year but I have been sliding backwards on my goal so back to the gym it is.

OH and I will also be adding to this my need to eat only healthy, low fat high fiber foods yippy! but more on that later!

Day 07- A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you.

I choose to do both!

The first is a picture of my skydiving adventure! This has had a large impact on my life and much more than I could have originally thought. I am scared of many thin
gs in life and nothing was more scary than looking at my feet 9,000' above the earth thinking I am about to fall out of plane strapped to a person I've known existed for maybe a few hours and have spent only ab
out 30 minutes talking/sitting with on the ride up. The last thing I was asked before the door was opened is "Do you trust me?" and I had no choice to say "Yes" and just go with it. Now nothing is every as scary as that moment and to do know that I did it something so scary I just did it is empowering beyond words.

The next is probably pretty obvious - lil C - she is just so amazing.

Day 06- Favorite super hero and why

Actually I have been thinking about this question for a long time and I am not sure who I would pick. After much thought and debate the only one I can come up with is Helen Parr or Elastigirl from the Incredibles.

I love her because she is who I want to be in life.
