November!

I've been gone for a month! Wow!

Nothing much has happened, I did such a fabulous job on my friend's bridal shower banner, she wants me to do her candy buffet. :)

I also succeeded in doing 80 miles for the month of October! I'm not sure what I will do in winter. I'm going to buy a stroller cover for Baby Bear's stroller, but I know how I crap out in the cold and wind. I can always do a video on Amazon instant video...the Prime may be worth keeping.

I'm in a size 18 pants now, that are SLACK! I started out in a 22. I think I need to buy new ones because they are feeling quite sloppy lately, but I am trying to wait for a sale. :)

I have been looking at a lot of clothes lately too! I used to jsut wear any old thing, now I FEEL like wearing nice clothes. I was in such a dark place with my weight and dealing with a narcissist. I'm just glad I am out of that hole.

A friend told me I seem like my old self. I do. I feel happy.

Anxiety

I need to make an appointment fo the doctor, but I dread doing it.

As an overweight person, you always get the "you need to lose weight, you are about to die" talk. Thankfully I switched doctors, so it's a positive talk now, but it's still not anything you want to discuss. UGH.

As you can see, I do keep up with my miles. I just know I am SO tired of doing it! Then I think, I have to do this for the Rest.Of.My.LIFE.

Don't get me wrong, I love exercising, but sometimes I want to come home from work and do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

I took a day off last week and didn't know WHAT to do with myself, it's so ingrained in me! LOL!

Bundle of mess!

My weeks are officially a bundle of mess. Work all day, get home at 4:30, cook, spend time with Baby Bear, get in my 4 miles, come home, bath us both and go to sleep!

It seems like I am constantly going morning til night until the weekend! Ugh!

Then I have the wedding coming up and making this banner for the bridal shower, paying all the house stuff that is due
this time of the year AND just surviving work. Omg, I need a mental break.

Can we go on the Disney cruise next year, not 2016!?!

Oh yeah! I'm getting in 4 miles per day, not my old 3 dinky miles I used to do!

I've lost weight.

I've been totally slacking on this blog.

Seriously.

I have been keeping up with my workout schedule and I have lost weight. I met up with the other bridesmaids and they said I look fabulous, so I guess I have lost some weight!

Now I only have to worry about my friend AND now her fiance trying to set me up. Ugh.

Get a life...

It's SO funny how a person can still try to get into your head. What's the purpose of that?

So glad I'm strong and I just ignore that foolishness! Wish other people would get a life.

6 miles up a mountain!

So.

I was tied of my same stupid route up the street to the town square from my house, then to the park and then home. UGH!

Instead, Baby Bear and I went to the local state park with a big granite mountain in it, like Stone Mountain has!

The first mile, I ran, but it got harder and harder, so I ended up walking. I was so intent on getting in different scenery, I didn't think about all the huge hills I'd endure. It's a mini mountain!

I know for next time, but I think that might be my new Saturday spot. So relaxing and Baby Bear made new friends on the playground. She seems to be a lot more friendly than I am!LOL!

Excuses, excuses.

I really took a good look at myself and I saw that I use being a single mom as an excuse for not being able to exercise.

I acted like I can't exercise because I don't have anyone to watch Baby Bear. I have to cook when we get home, I have to make sure I spend time with her, etc.

This week, I was able to do all of that WITHOUT anyone to watch her. I made my lunches on Sunday, I ironed our clothes for the week on Sunday as well. I was prepare, so when we got home, all I did was warm up dinner (that I cooked on Sunday, then at 6:30 we went and did our 3 or 4 miles.

It was too easy.

All I had to do was prepare. For some reason, I feel really good about myself.

I guess just feeling put together instead of a frazzled single mom with so many damn excuses!

I SO can do this!
