Could it Be?!

Posted: September 23, 2009 at 12:19 am

We had SUN today! Oh, thank goodness. Our pool was overflowing last night and decided to visit our basement. What joy that is to clean up. 

And today is a good day because it is Tuesday again! Biggest Loser day! I tell you - I look forward to this show every week. And my greek yogurt & peanut butter "icecream" to go along with it (yummers). Tuesday nights are a perfect night for this show because now that I've realized Wednesdays are my "tough-diet-day-of-the-week", I can use TBL to motivate me to get through it. As well as reporting and sharing thoughts about progress and the show on Heather's blog on Wednesdays. I will be watching as soon as I log off here. Thank goodness for DVR so I can fast forward through commercials. 

Today I was super motivated again. I've been adding some quotes/Bible verses to a poster I have on my fridge that I read off of every day as many times as I can. It also has my God letter on it that I read as well. These cheesy inspiring tidbits added to my day are really making a difference. And motivation is important in the comp-prep game. So what all did I do today? I woke up, hit the gym for cardio/tan/stretch/abs, played with the baby girl, ate on plan, cleaned cleaned cleaned, spent a tiny bit of time with Harry Potter, and that's about it. Told you it was nothing exciting - but it was still GOOD. Even GREAT! Looking forward to another game on day tomorrow, pushed along by the knowledge that 100+ lb overweight people can do it and so can I. 😉
