So I weighed myself this morning and reached the number: One fill in the blank Zero. This means that I have lost my next ten pounds on my weight loss agenda. I decided to go back into my 101 Things To Do list and jot it down as an accomplished task only to realize that it took me more than a year to do so. I know I haven’t even barely tried to lose weight, but Golly Gee Whiz- a whole freaking year!?!? I lost about 5 pounds since giving up rice and potato chips for Lent this year. I think that was two weeks ago. Go figure. So I have told myself that I am no longer eating rice until I reach my goal weight. I am hoping to lose more weight in time for our trip to the Philippines. The one thing I need to really start doing is going to the gym. It has been quite a while since I last did that. Although I am happy to have lost 10 pounds without going to the gym, I think I am going to start having to just to see better and quicker results. I still can’t believe that I lost 5 pounds just in two weeks due to not eating rice at all. Eventually, I know the weight loss will taper off, so I have to slowly get myself back on track to the gym. I also need to start eating a bit earlier than 830PM. I can’t give up my coffee addiction, so I think I need to add water into my daily diet as well. I am not a big water drinker. In one day, I may drink one bottle- if even that. Most days, I don’t drink water at all. Lord help me with all of the above! Help me achieve all that I want to do with no will power, oh lord. Hahahaha!
Anyway, I can’t believe that it is already March! I’m so excited for spring and summer to finally be here. It’s going to be a busy summer and I am looking forward to so many things with the kids. My spirit feels lifted just thinking about it! We are definitely spending more time in Chicago this summer since the kids are big enough. We will need to start taking strolls by the lakeshore, taking the train ride to downtown Chicago, Navy Pier and summer festivals and so much more. I miss the city and I can’t wait to share it’s beauty with my girls! Hooray!
