Teriffic Tuesday!

Today's post will be pretty short, just like yesterday's.  I have a hair appointment and only have a few minutes before I have to leave.  I thought I'd post a quick update...

My workout yesterday went well. I did the shoulders and triceps routine.  I felt like I was working, and worked until my form started to fail and I got shaky, so that's good. I could only get three or four of some of the moves so I had to switch to lighter dumbbells in order to do more reps.  Today I'm not feeling quite as sore as I thought (was hoping!) I would. I'm definitely not as sore as I was last Monday.  Maybe my body is already adjusting to being worked harder? Despite using different muscles for other arm workouts, it's possible that these muscles are involved to an extent. Maybe that's enough to notice a difference.  Either way, it was a good workout and I felt good after....Just wish I was a bit more sore today!!

I'm still not sure what is going on after my appointment (or how long it will last) so I guess today's workout is still up in the air. At worst it won't get done and I will have to do legs with abs and cardio tomorrow. No big deal, really. As long as I get some work done, I'll be happy!! I know how much better I feel when I workout and really have been enjoying these workouts.

I know it's only been a week (and in a week how much do you really change?), but I swear I already feel a difference. I'm sure a difference cannot yet be seen (and won't for at least a few weeks) but I feel it. I haven't weighed myself in ages (really need to remember scale batteries) and for the first time I'm not too concerned about it. I definitely want to lose some weight (I'd guess, at least, 20 more pounds to get back to where I was, at my smallest, two years ago). It's funny how I was happy yet not happy at that point in time. I was still fighting to try to be even smaller. Now? I'd gladly take that weight and be happy at it. Gotta love how the brain works... I know that when I reach that goal this time, I'll be happy with it. Will I want to lose a little more weight? Probably. But I won't be working myself to exhaustion to get there.  Honestly I'll be happy dropping ten more pounds, but I think I'd be happiest at 20 less.... Than where I was post-op anyway. As I said, I haven't weighed myself in over a month. Right now I'm focusing on health, muscle, and the way my body feels (and eventually looks), how my clothes fit, and how I feel....Rather than focusing on the numbers (because let's face it, the numbers make me crazy and obsessive). I'm hoping that by focusing on health, being less stressed, and working hard, the weight will come off. I'm doing everything right, but I'm not monitoring it.... And after I buy batteries I probably won't monitor it as closely. We shall see.

Well, I need to get moving so I can get to my appointment. I've been looking forward to it all day! I'm changing the color up a little. I'm currently blonde (highlighted - a lot), and am thinking of adding some low lights/going a little darker - maybe a reverse ombre type look.  I'll consult with my fabulous stylist and I'm sure we will come up with something fun and new. I want it to be subtle but noticeable....Nothing too drastic at this point!

I hope you had a great day! Keep it healthy!



  1. Hindsight is 20/20, isn't it? I thought the same thing about how at my smallest I wanted to be smaller. Now I really do feel like I'd appreciate it more this time around.

    1. It really, really is... I feel like I'll appreciate it much more too!
