Living Life and time to stop celebrating my weight loss! posted on 8/7/12 11:03 am
I'm sorry I have been a blogging slacker, but I've been living life to the fullest.
In March, I went on a cruise and had an AWESOME TIME!! It was very difficult to not over eat on the cruise with all those food choices, but I did it. I may have gained a few pounds since vacation, but it was A-OK with me. I did have alot of frozen yogurt, (settled my stomach!) and enjoyed some adult beverages too!! Let me just say, I'm a very cheap date now! LOL.. All in all, it was a great time, and I will try to post a few pictures on my page soon. My friends and I decided we would dress up every night for dinner, so I bought lots of great dresses to wear! I even got to meet the Captain.. He was very handsome!! I should have asked if he was single!! hehe
In June, I took a Motorcycle Safety Class to learn how to ride a motorcycle. Well, I failed the class.... because I tipped over on the bike and broke my right foot. I'm finally out of the boot now, but still have to wear sensible shoes for this month, then I can get back into some heels in September. I am going to take the Motorcycle class again, because I WILL TAME THAT TWO WHEELED DEMON!! hehe. I really enjoyed riding it, and after speaking to my riding coaches, they said I was doing well up until I put the bike down!
Having a broken foot sort of killed my exercise routines. I had started going faithfully to yoga, and had tried a couple zumba classes, but having a broken foot leaves you a little immobile, so I'm slowly starting up a few exercises, as my foot feels better. I can't wait to get back to walking 5Ks again, etc.
Scuba Lessons are scheduled for the end of August. I'm very excited to do that!!
So, as you can see, I'm definately living life.
After vacation, I gained 10 pounds, then I gained another TEN... and YIKES!! boy did that scare me. I got my snacking back under control and 10 of those pounds fell right off. WHEW, that was good news. Of course, that was before I broke the foot, so I've been hovering around this same weight now for a little while. I've been telling my friends I need to stop celebrating and get back to work if I want to get the rest of my weight off. Which I do!!
Still no boyfriend, but that is ok. I had put a profile out on a dating website, and got too caught up in trying to meet someone, so I deleted my profile. I need to keep myself the focus of my life, so I figure, when its meant to be, I'll meet someone worthy of me. Until then I'm not settling. I just keep myself busy and happy, and we shall see what happens.
Til I write again (which will be sooner than last time!)
Take care and keep up your great work everyone!!

What worked for me on dating sites is rewriting my profile to say I was a cranky middle-aged broad who was tired of having guys contact me who weren't serious. It got featured as the profile of the week, but by then I started dating my body building boyfriend. He's not Mr. Right, but there's nothing wrong with having a Mr. Right Now!
Good luck with healing your foot. I'm tempted to take up scuba myself. My experiences with snorkeling have been great, showing me the wonder that is most of our planet.
Thanks for sharing: I appreciate reading how you're choosing to live your life with as positive attitude as possible. I commend you. I haven't reached goal yet but I'm really close, thanks for sharing how easy it is to be tempted to celebrate a little too much and for a little too long. Wish you the best and am confident you will reach your goals.
