Round 4 Begins….

Well, I know I’ve been quiet for a bit but it has been a weird week.  I attended the Group Workout and Finale, which were heaps of fun and met the fabulous SailorVee, whose blog many of you follow.  Then on Sunday, my beloved 16 year old cat Sebastian passed away after a stroke, which was devastating.  Since then my head has been elsewhere, I’ve been doing ridiculous things like forgetting my phone or one of my shoes when leaving for work and leaving my handbag in the car, I guess it takes a while to get your head back into it’s normal space after that kind of loss.

On the weight loss front, I have now lost 10% of my body weight! WooHoo for me! That is just too exciting.  Also when I was getting dressed for work the other morning ( and of course not having any clean washing due to a) being out at workout and finale party and b) spending Sunday nursing Seb), just as I was wondering how the boss would respond to Naked Tuesday as a dress code for a school teacher, I spied a pair of cargos in the cupboard that I had forgotten I had.  I bought them a couple of years ago and at the time forced my big old butt into them about twice, but they were so tight the seams imprinted themselves on my thighs and I felt like I was being cut in half and strangled slowly.  I thought “I wonder if they will fit, but I doubt it….” and then tried them on and who would have thunk it, THEY FIT LIKE A GLOVE! So stoked!

The other little win for me this week was after I lost Seb and my thought process was not that I would retreat to my little cave and lick my wounds, but that I NEEDED to get out there and clear my head.  Exercise has become a life line and a way of life rather than an obligation to force myself to complete.

What a change!
