I had better get this post done today because I don't think my arms are going to be able to do much tomorrow.  Ouch!!  This morning I worked out with a friend, who happens to be the Group Exercise Manager at the gym.  We did upper body and right now I can practically guarantee that these arms aren't going to be functioning too well very soon.  LOL

So what does the word DIET mean for you/us/people/women/everyone.  Well, basically it means we are following some eating plan to lose weight / live healthily / yadda yadda.  For me at the moment D.I.E.T. stands for...


I suppose I should be grateful that I am not putting on weight  okay, maybe just a little bit but for the most part I'm maintaining BUT I don't want to maintain.  **Sob**

So I am totally to blame for my tears of frustration but part of me does not want to go back to Weigh Less or any other DIET out there.  Not getting on the scale, taking the pressure off seems to have helped my mood drastically.  Don't get me wrong - I love my group leader - she is a super inspiring woman but it's just not happening for me right now.  At the end of the day, I know what to do.  I know what to eat and when to eat.  I know how to put my body through pain at the gym and come out the other end ENJOYING it!!  Yes, enjoying it.  Won't be saying that tomorrow though when I wake up and my arms are screaming at me.  We'll just take it one step keystroke at a time for now.  LOL

I'll leave you with this family portrait which was taken this past weekend by a very good friend of mine.
