Friday checkin in...and Hello spring! and Bat wings
Happy Friday Has been one of those kinds of weeks..Work has been superbusy. Physically , I've been recovering from a weekend of eating and drinking out of the norm and less sleep than normal. I've been going to bed early, getting up early, getting the taxes done, thinking about my next vacation , and starting to putter in the garden. Getting my usual exercise in with a little extra Zumba class here and particularly tough Kickboxing classes this week.
My 8 lb gain after the weekend away is almost gone..all but 3 lbs. I have no doubt it will keep dropping off and then ..just maybe I'll face the 220's for the first time in forever. .. highschool?
Other people who see me everyday at the gym and even I have noticed my body changing, waist seems to becoming more defined. I have noticed that my arms are more flabby and it bothers me. My batwings are growing which means fat is burning off. Yeah! Ah, I'm not so happy about the wings, but I think recognizing that wearing shirts with sleeves that cover the wings versus just barely covering them is important if I'm working out in a class that emphasizes arms. I do ALL kinds of arm exercises, can't be doing much more than I already am. I accept it . I don't like it. I'll cover them up. I showed my sister and she was horrified and immediately asked if I was going to have surgery to remove the extra skin. She didn't have a concept that I weighed over 300 lbs and still weigh technically 100lbs overweight. I'm going to be able to fly maybe with these wings eventually.
The weekend: I'm hoping to get a movie in "alice in wonderland" . Saturday is supposed to be in the 70's and sunny, so I'm thinking a walk / run at a park after the movie. And I just have a desire to be at home, watch tv, read, and spend time with myself , my hubby, and my animals. Oh and catching up with blogs.
Hope your Friday and first day of Spring are great!
I'm a Geek for many things: Food, Pajamas, Coffee, Chocolate, Movies, Books, getting and being fit and healthy, 80's music, and the list goes on and on .....A nurse, a diabetic, I've lost over 130 lbs and have more to go . And I actually enjoy working out.
I chose the names of Ms. PJ Geek and PJ and Pounds because I have happy memories of childhood, coming in dirty and sweaty from playing in the yard. Then taking a bath, putting on a fresh nightgown and feeling all new again . I felt like a princess. Fresh renewal. .........
All names and situations will be changed to protect the innocent and the guilty, and so I can keep my job. While I am a nurse, I do not intend this to be a blog with specific directions or guidelines for healthcare. And.....though I have a college degree, that was a long time ago ya'll, and I don't remember proper punctuation or grammar.
