Friday May 4, 2018: 10 - 11:30am Ballet with Beverly

Well, I was having an awesome class today. I was hesitant to go to ballet because of the plantar faciitis in my left heel, but I had asked the doc about it last Friday and he said it would be ok. AND... it was ok, until petit allegro. Owiieeee!!! I just want my heel to be better to I can move and jump and dance free again. I don't like getting old. It feels like there is ALWAYS something. Before this it was my shoulder. That is better... you would think I could get a few classes in without being sore... but now it is my heel. OK... enough whining. I guess I am lucky to be a... 44 (in 12 days!) year old dancer. I am lucky to still be able to do what I love at all.

One of my dance lady friends said I looked good and asked if I had been losing weight today. YAY!!!

Let's focus on the good stuff people!!!


Ok.. off to the park with Christian and Jonny.

80 Day Obsession Round 1 DONE!

I did it! You know what though? I didn't feel as excited as I should have at the end. I think this is because, from the start, I have set this up to be a lifestyle change and not just 80 days. When the end of 80 days came along, I knew I was going to have a few treats and then get right back at it. It is part of my life and routine now. It makes me feel good. I like timed nutrition. I am full and healthy. I don't crave chips and pop on the way home, because I have my driving home meal.

I didn't change much the last month, even with peak week. Part of me thinks it is because my body adjusted to it or is happy where it is, another part of me thinks I should have stuck to the plan even closer and chosen the foods from the top of the list which are the healthiest. Then, I started to see other people's transformations and thought, why didn't I try harder? Why did I cheat those days when we were on vacation or at a funeral? I had to check myself! I had to remind myself of all that I had accomplished. I am awesome. I did awesome. I am going to keep doing awesome.
