Striving For Tuckability and Watching Friends On TV
This morning I got up feeling good, optimistic really—it was going to be a wonderful Tuesday. And it was. I started with this upbeat attitude and it carried over into everything I touched today. I started with my floor exercises and non-weighted squats. It’s a wonderful way to start the morning. I don’t necessarily break a sweat doing these, but I feel it in my muscles---it’s a nice start to any day, and I don’t need equipment or a drive to do them. It’s easy. And you know me, I’m all about making things as simple as can be.
At the same time I’m trying to keep things simple, my mind and my eyes are trying to absorb more information about better eating and strength training. I’m trying not to complicate things, that would be totally against my philosophy, but I do long for a better understanding of how our body works and why. This is where I am along this road. I’m very close to goal (whatever that is), and after 236 pounds of success---I’m realizing that the time has come to learn more, to broaden my understanding, and strive for optimal results.
I’m not there yet. I’m not. I still have weight to lose and don’t you even suggest I tuck in my shirt. I see people that have lost considerable amounts of weight and they haven’t had skin removal surgery, yet they are flat enough to tuck and look great. I want that too. Maybe my body is just different, I don’t know. I’ll strive toward tuckability while dressing in the most flattering un-tucked way. I’m going to get there, no problem!
I watched the Dr. Oz 100 Show today. What a wonderful idea and very well put together! I caught Ann on the intro, caught a glimpse or two of Zeusmeatball, and watched proudly as Diane from Fit To The Finish took the main stage. You can listen to an interview I conducted with Diane a while back, it’s still on my sidebar, just click play. Diane did a wonderful job---and everyone agrees, it’s unanimous---She looked absolutely incredible on TV! Diane, you might want to think about a career in TV! Maybe a weight loss type show? Seriously, great job Diane! It was so cool to watch friends on TV, it was just wonderful!
I was so proud of everyone that was a part of that show. It was inspiring to watch and Richard Simmons, what can I say---You know I’m a HUGE fan of Richard, He was just incredible. His story about his early eating disorders and how he turned it all around and has kept it off for over 40 years, it’s just amazing. They estimated that Richard has inspired at least three million pounds off of people around the world. That’s a bunch of inspiration. The pictures everyone took with Richard looked so wonderful, what a cherished memory that must be!
It was a long day today, but good. I had a creative spark today that resulted in a wonderful commercial that made the client laugh so hard, they had trouble regaining their composure after listening. That success made my day so much better. Big thanks to the voice talent that set that radio spot onto a wonderful level. Stephanie Williams and Anson Williams did an amazing job. It feels good when we do well, you know? Anything that improves our attitude and outlook like this---is a positive thing for our weight loss and fitness goals. And it works both ways. Losing weight and feeling great makes us do a better job, and doing a better job puts us in a positive frame of mind to do well at losing weight and feeling great.
Day 520 was a good day. I’m off work for several days starting tomorrow, so that’s going to be fun I’m sure! And tomorrow is weigh day! I can't wait to get those results!!! I need a little break from my workday routine---and this is it, so I’ll enjoy! Thank you for reading. Goodnight and…
