in the groove

so i just downloaded the blogger app on my phone. now i can blog from anywhere at any time. the possibilities are endless, friends :)
just wanted to check in. i've been up and down the last couple weeks but my exercise has remained consistent. i feel like i'm back in my groove. i am working out between 8:30 and 10 at night. this isn't ideal for most people, but it works for me...and i am soooooo not an early morning girl....for real though...
so as of today, i'm down 6.5 lbs. not too shabby but a couple of those pounds keep playing hide and seek. i am currently working hard to banish them forever!
so last night we went to a birthday party for my sister in law. i hadn't worked out for 2 days and one of my new rules is to not go 3 days without working out, so when we got home, i put on my workout clothes and headed to the gym. this is not to say i didn't want to put on some comfy clothes and hang out on the couch, i did. but truthfully, i wanted to exercise more. crazy huh? i have been amazed at what my body can do.
i am doing a bit better on my food. smaller portions and my snacking has dropped off a ton.
here is me working out at 10pm. i had to snap a pic since i was the only one at the gym late on a friday night. just me....hahaha :)

Aha moment ::: Robyn

I don't have anything too profound to say today. :)  I am tired and busy and don't have the energy to have too much emotion.  I didn't want to miss a week blogging though. It helps me stay on track and motivates me to do better.

I am getting in the groove. I am tracking my calories and exercising. I have been exercising with a trainer and I love it. I love using my muscles and getting comfortable in the weight side of the gym. I have to really talk myself into it. I am self conscious. But, I'm doing it. I am gaining confidence.

I had a really big Aha moment this week. I have really been working on mind, body, soul, full encompassing healing. I read something that talked about living in a way that your actions are a contradiction to your hopes and desires. It really struck a cord with me. I have been doing that for so long. Thinking, hoping, and planning to change my life and habits some time soon. Now as I am making choices I am really considering if this choice and action matches the hopes and desires that I have for my life. This week has been good. I have made lots of good choices and I feel like I am really moving in a good direction.

I lost 1 lbs this week. I want to have a little tantrum over that. I want to stomp my feet, maybe cry a little and say "dang it". Really, I did that for a minute, and then I decided that was silly. Instead I'm going to celebrate that I am down. I am doing it. I'm not just thinking, hoping, or planning to do it sometime soon. I am really doing it. One step at a time, one bite at a time, one day at a time, and one minute at a time. I'm trying to learn from my past but really look forward to a happy future.

This for a laugh

This for motivation

and this for inspiration!

Thanks so much for stopping by and for supporting me and loving me!

Bend at it, sweat at it, smile at it too, because my body is a temple, and I want to fly.
