If you remember, back in May, after a trip to the boat, I set a goal for myself (see post). I wanted to be able to get my ass up on 2 ski's. Then, I posted pics of myself skiing when I was a little girl. Slalom skiing. My goal was to be able to get up on 2 skis in August, and next year get back up a slalom.
I failed. I tried this weekend and although I was closer then back in May, the rope still pops out of my hands. I can't pull my body weight long enough to get up. I didnt pout, but when no one was looking, I cried. I don't like to set a goal and not reach it. And I thought I could do it. I am 88 pounds down, been working out, feeling good. It is two ski's for pete's sake!!!! Tracey's little ass literally pops up on the water. We probably won't be back up to the boat until November, so it looks like next year for my water skiing dreams. Screw two ski's, next year I am going straight to one. And when I do ladies, it will be a good day! Expect video.
But, I must brush my ego off and get on with it.
I also set a goal of 90 pounds down by Sept. 3rd. I WILL reach that by Monday (positive thinking there). So, it is time to set my next goal, and while I usually set my goals in 20 or 30 pound increments, I am setting my goal 10 pounds out this time...which will bring me to 100 pounds down!
October 12th. Fitting don't you think? It is Columbus Day. He discovered a new world...or an island...or something...and I am discovering a new body! (Okay, that was a stretch) My next goal after that will be my bandiversary, January 27th. I want to weigh 207 on that day, 120 pounds down.
Let there be light!
