Finished one project
Friday, August 13, 2010
Good morning everyone! It is Friday, so I am in a great mood. Tonight is going to be a date of sorts with the man that I love, and then tomorrow is ladies night. There is a new laser tag place open in Columbia that has a bar attached. Why had no one thought of this before now?? Anyway, we are going to go play some laser tag and have a couple drinks if all goes according to plan. I am only allowing myself 3 drinks each night (if that). I cannot wait (I know I bring this up a lot) until I can start having dinner parties because I have found many low cal drink recipes I'd like to try out, it's hard to drink low cal at the bar without drinking vodka/diet.
Anyway, I am sticking to doing P90X every day this week since I missed Monday. My arms are sore from last night, and I hate hate Ab Ripper X. It is HARD. But I can see why those that have completed P90X still use this workout for a ab routine, I think I'll have a six pack by the time I finish the 90 days. Hahaha, I wish.
My boyfriend went out with some friends last night, and I started going stir crazy. A friend of mine was bartending and invited me out for a drink. And I wanted to. I am really proud that I did not. It would have gone in a bad direction, and my boss has been out for two weeks and today is his first day back and I didn't want to look like I'd been out drinking all night. And I didn't want to feel like crap all day. Thursday is always the hardest day to NOT go out, because there is only one day left. But a lot of the time I end up sacrificing my Fridays because I went out Thursday. I want to change that.
So, instead I worked on my Motivational Poster- and I finished it. Yay. :] I took a picture but it didn't send to my email properly so I will have to post it at another time. But I am really pleased with it. I was hoping to find a good picture of Pink to place as the centerpiece as her figure is closest to what mine will resemble if I get as fit as I could (I don't have a very curvy figure, and she has helped me accept that). And I did! She shows me that women like us can still be extremely sexy, we just have to try different things. I found the Women's Health that she was in and I found an awesome centerpiece, so I'm happy.
I really want my great efforts of this week to carry through this weekend. I wish I could really keep away from the scale. I am pretty good at brushing it off as no big deal and I don't count it so much. But I still find myself stepping on it every few days out of curiousity. And I am still seeing my weight swing back and forth between 128-130. . . bah. the same weight it has been staying around since May.. But I am thinking that this program will help me break my plateau and I just need to be patient. All things will come in time and I know my clothes are fitting me better and I am dropping body fat at least. Just have to stay positive.
I also need some advise: I have a float trip next weekend. It is going to be with my man, several of my closest friends, and then a bunch of people I don't know because it is a small music festival. I need some ideas how to have a great time and let loose with my friends without drinking my weight in booze?? I am thinking maybe breaking down and getting some of that MGD light that has like 70 calories or whatever. But other than that I am lost, without just not drinking at all.. I know that on the float (Saturday) I am going to drink, though. I plan to reign it in on the other days, but Saturday it will be hard being out on the water all day. I plan to bring tennis shoes so that I can explore some instead of just sitting around drinking all day on Friday. But I would LOVE and appreciate any advise you have??
That's it for now, have a great weekend everybody!
