Ha Ha!! I love kids, I love their honesty and how they don't sugar coat anything! Sometimes it can be a little embarrasing and even hurtful but sometimes the truth hurts! ... Yesterday we had all just woken up and we were getting ready for the day and I was still in my pajamas (a t-shirt and underwear, it was HOT!) ... I was standing at the kitchen counter and my 4 year old walks up and points to my upper leg and says "Mom - do you see that! Why do you have bubbles on your leg???" I kind of laughed and then told him, that's the fat mommy is trying to get rid of when she is running on the treadmill!! ... Ha ha! ... He was very amazed and didn't really know what to think of it all. Poor kid! ha ha ... all I can do is laugh because eventually it will be gone, but at this point in time, it is what it is :)
So yesterday I got an awesome workout cutting the grass - I was completely soaked with sweat by the time I was done - it has been 100+ here the past few days and we had put off cutting the grass as long as we could. I honestly don't think I have ever sweated that much, but it felt good!! I have a VERY hilly back yard and it is huge - took me an hour to the front and backyard and when I was done I was so sore I could barely move - I love that feeling :)
I have decided to start making some mini-goals. I have been reading some blogs with others who are doing this and it seems to help breaking things up and not having this HUGE goal to reach. I am 174 today, ultimately I want to weigh 135 by the time I am 30 (June 27, 2012) ... just a personal goal of mine, I want to see myself at that weight and I want to just have the accomplishment of reaching it. I will be happy at 145 but I want to prove to myself that if I really want something bad enough I can do it ... So anyways, back to smaller goals. My first small goal is to be 160 by September 5th (Labor Day) ... that is 8 weeks away. 14 pounds in 8 weeks would be 1.75 lbs/week ... I can do that! This would also be 33 lbs lost total! After this I will set another mini goal - and so on until I reach my ultimate goal of 135.
So stay tuned - watch me shrink and meet each goal..... Now I just need to think of some rewards for each goal I meet!!
What about you? Do you set mini goals? What are your rewards??
