I want a pet groundhog. They are just precious. Or maybe a pet sea otter. Or beaver. I know...I know. Some of you are thinking of clever beaver jokes this very moment.
Anyways, January is one for the record books. I don't know what that really means, but I just mean to imply that it is over. And since January 1, I have been doing a pretty good job of staying on track, upping the cardio, counting the calories, blogging, water drinking, and the such. Funny though...bc THE MU&%*&#%ing scale read 176.4 on Monday. Good times. That means that the official result of all my hard work is less than 5 pounds.
Not to worry though munchkins. The scale read 170 this morning, but I have just decided the scale is a liar and although I will continue to listen to those lies on a daily basis...I take them with a grain of salt. Or sugar. Sugar sounds better.
But...in all honesty. I know I am doing the right thing. And I FEEL better about myself. And I LOOK a little better. And regardless of the scale, I am moving in the right direction. So I will keep on keeping on.
The only thing I am going to change is that over the month of January I cut back on my weight training and upped my cardio. I am going to keep on running, but I am going to stop cutting back on weight lifting. It didnt seem to make a difference...and you know mama likes her iron. Yum yum.
Had my blood taken today for my 3 year check up visit next week. 13 vials of blood is fun times! I look forward to seeing if everything is better that I take my vitamins on a more regular basis.
So happy Thursday love pumpkins.
Fight the good fight.
