What a week!

Saturday, April 09, 2011

It's been almost a week since I last wrote. In this week I have managed to stay on track (yay) and am inching my way closer to my first goal.

On the not-so great side, my sore throat turned into a cough & cold. Luckily it didn't last too long and my kids seem like they might not catch it.

In other news - my husband and I have decided that because we're celebrating our 10 year anniversary this year - we' re going on a kid-free vacation. Our anniversary is in August, but we likely won't go away til the fall because his schedule work wise is pretty packed til then. So....major motivation to be in bathing suit shape by the fall (we're likely going to the Carribean or on a cruise...still deciding). AND we also decided that on this vacation we'll try for #4 (hope that's not too much info for everyone...but I'm excited!).

So I'm excited, but worried. Typically when I have a tangible goal like that (eg...I'll be thin in time for bathing suit season) I manage to sabatoge myself. It's honestly like I'm afraid I might be successful at something. I wish I understood it. But I am NOT going to let it happen this time because quite frankly - I don't want to be in this body by then. I love my curves and even my sad little stretchmarks & saggy post-baby belly....because well it's like a battle scar. I made three beautiful babies and my body shows it. However - as I've said many times ....I want to feel good. No amount of food is worth me feeling like I'm not worth this for another day, week, month or year.

    I do the same thing myself. It's almost like I put so much unnecessary pressure on myself that I end up thinking it's unattainable. I end up putting all my focus on the end result and not the day to day results that will get the end result. If that makes any sense to you.
    I'm beginning to think I need to set the goal and then forget about it until the time has arrived and instead keep my focus on the day to day goals. Hope this helps.
