I've been wondering lately if slow and steady really wins the race. Actually I've been a little obsessive about it but that's just how I get. And to be completely honest I don't think slow and steady wins the race. I think slow and steady KEEPS you in the race...which (IMO) is more important than winning; at least how it pertains to weight loss and living healthy. I don't just want to win the battle of the buldge; I want to keep it away forever.
For my journey I have been attempting to surround and supply myself with the proper tools for better, healthier, sanier living. Hanging out with individuals who care about their health, who are upbeat and motivated. I've been working very hard at keeping my mental state in the positive and finding active ways to combat the grouchies. I keep very little "junk" food around the house and make a concerted effort to keep moving. So far so good because I am down another 2 glorous pounds. Ok so it's a very small loss but I am VERY happy with it because it's in the right direction! And I'm also now in a size 16 verse my 18's...so what I didn't see on the scale I am seeing in the clothing!! yeahoo for me!!
In keeping with my new pal Diet51 (at http://dietof51.blogspot.com - sorry can't get link thingie to work right!!) I've decided to share some very exciting news. Heck I'm beginning to think of her as my good luck charm but let's be honest...all of bloggerland is my good luck charm (you help keep me sane!!). Anyhooo...I got a bonus at work!! I'm so very excited because bonuses come few and far between where I work. My goal at work is to make every boss wish they had me as an assistant; to make every co-worker wish I were in their group. You may think that's conceited of me BUT I'm there to help everyone there do their job to the best of their ability. And someone (my boss-did I mention I have the COOLEST boss EVER!!) noticed. And it made me feel like a million bucks. And on the verge of student loans being due I get the bonus which enables me to get closer to paying off my car. I have like 3 payments left!! SOOO excited.
Other exciting news is that there are three new additions to my family...Greta, runner, and lil player....they will certainly come in handy in keeping me moving!!!
Greta I bought greta (garmin gps FR60) with garage sale funds...shhhh don't tell my husband!!
Runner My new New Balance running shoes I got back on admin assistant day from my group (I have a fantastic group of folks that I work for who are very into living healthy)....
Sorry...no photo of lil player...lil player is a portable dvd player donated to me from my gal pal at work....it is going in front of the treadmill for those rainy days!!
