That’s my goal. Not perfect, just great! I have a lot going on today. All day TRT meeting which means we’ll be going out to lunch and then Mama Mia and dinner with the Sistahs tonight. I’m going to eat halfway decent and try to just go with the flow. I’m tired of swimming against the current.
To get this day off on the right foot, I’m heading for the shower and then a quick 15 minute session of step aerobics.
6:40 - 20 minutes of aerobics and 160 calories have been booted out! Off to a good start. I’m going to really work on breaking that winter routine the next few days. Gotta stop coming home, hitting the couch, and watching TV. Today will be easy because I’ve got plans this evening. The hard part will be eating sensibly when I’m eating out twice today. Now I’m off to get dressed and go to the meetin!
5:00 - I’m blogging. So that means I’m not sitting on my butt in front of the TV eating. Not meeting the Sistahs till 6:30 when we’re getting together for dinner and then Mama Mia at 7:30. I want to talk about losing weight and supporting each other but I don’t think I’d better bring it up. Things are a little iffy right now. I’m not sure why. Look, here we are last May:
There’s Lisa on the left. I’m not 100% sure that Lisa was ever really a Sistah. She didn’t really seem commited. Kind of hung out with us for a little bit and then she and Pam has some disagreements and Lisa started making excuses about showing up or just not showing up at all. I think she was looking for an easy way out. I’m not sure what’s going on with her. Then, there’s Pam, hiding behind me (and there’s lots of room to hide. I make a pretty large block.) Pam’s dealing with some issues right now and I think dieting and exercising is not at the top of her priority list. She’s headed for gall bladder surgery next month and dealing with a lot of stress in her job and personal life right now. Jana’s on the right. Jana is a flighty bird. Always juggling a million different things and managing to appear confident and full of joy. Jana just giggles about the dieting and exercising and chastises herself so we don’t have to do it for her. Me? I’m not sure where I am. I may be the only one who really needs the Butt Sistahs. I miss meeting at the gym and the monthly dinners to compare notes. It really helped me focus. I hope we can salvage something. Of course, we’ll still be good friends. I love Jana and Pam dearly but I wish we were supporting each other in the eating/exercising/getting in shape routine. Maybe I should try to form another group but it would be hard to replace these girls. They’re the cream of the crop and I don’t think I’d feel the same with anyone else. These guys know me well enough that I can be myself around them. Of course, I’m paying the gym every month but I finally stopped going because the only reason I joined was to work out with them. Like I said, I guess we need to decide if we’re still interested in dieting and exercising but I’m not sure tonight is the best time to bring it up. Tonight is more about rekindling the relationships and easing some tension that’s developed between us.
Think I’ll spend a few minutes checking up with some of you chickies. I will NOT go into the living room and watch TV.
