Someone asked what I am going to do lose weight. How I plant to “torture” myself. I know everyone has their opinions and their cautions and their warnings and all of it because they care or are concerned. I’m going hardcore. I am giving up all of it. No carbs, no sweets, no wine, no soda, no processed anything. I plan on going on a detox of sorts here. I plan on working out (as much and often as possible). I will be taking a before picture of me Biggest L*oser Style. But I will not be posting it until the after.
I feel lost under the fluffy right now. I want to bring the spunk back. I want to have the energy that the bad foods have sucked out of me. I know it will take a bit of time, but since I have nothing really (besides work and photography) to focus on (I have no kids so the excuses really are all worthless), on Monday (D-Day) it will become my numero Uno priority.
I may put up a blog just to chronicle my crabbiness, my trials, my successes and failures. I don’t know if this blog would be the place for it since not everyone really cares about my latest weight loss adventure. My feelings on MY weight and body are probably not interesting to others, but I do enjoy going back and reading it and when I succeed, reading about it will be a sort of sweet victory. If I do blog about it, I will link it here in case anyone IS interested.
In other news… not adoption related sorry… I went to my HOA meeting last night to find out if we actually ARE going to paint this year since I have spent a small fortune making the repairs to my balcony, porch and siding. To my delight, we had paint swatches to look at and we WILL be painting! YAY! To my double delight, I was there to pick the three color pallets that the homeowners will vote on. The community is a bunch of townhouses… here is a picture of one of the homes down the street that is for sale.. but you will get the idea..
Well we came up with three house/trim color combos. The homeowners (there are 46 of us) will vote and decide which one. Then, there are three front door colors to choose from that all go with the house/trim combos. Each homeowner will be able to decide what door color they want. I love the idea. It gives each of us a little freedom to be ourselves in a community that is all the same.
Happy Friday everyone! Don’t forget to change your clocks this weekend!
