How did that happen? 382 Days, 9 hours and 27 minutes.. according to the countdown clock on my computer. Who the hell would put a countdown clock on their computer for when they turn 50? Uh.. Me. 382 Days, 9 hours, 24 minutes and 7 seconds. Wow, that seems like self torture.
So I have lost 50 pounds. Last year my Doctor told me he wanted me to lose 30-50 lbs with in a year. I hit that, but I really wanted to do more. Do better. Now I have a year.. well 382 days until I hit 50 and that is the real goal I set for myself. I would be happy with another 50, but really… in the small crevices of my brain, I keep thinking about 70. That would be my ultimate goal. I will be okay if I just get that other 50 though.
So what does a 50 lb weight loss do for you? It’s amazing! Two weeks ago was the Indy Car race at Iowa. That was to be the real test. Could I handle being there both days? Would I die climbing up to the 34th row in the stands? If I got lucky, I wouldn’t have to find out the answer to the last one…. and I got lucky.
Three Fridays in a row I have won something on Twitter. Another crevice in the brain keeps saying “Get thee to the casino” but I am ignoring that one. Yesterday I won a crew shirt from Panther Racing, a week ago I won some free cat treats, which the cats are refusing to eat, and race weekend, I won pit and garage passes from Newman Haas Racing. And if I was lucky, that would also include Race Mode pit passes. Did I mention that I had been lucky lately? Race Mode pit passes are amazing!
And Sunday- until my camera died:
I am also trying to set some goals for this blog. I have a friend who write a great blog and she does entries like “Wordless Wednesday” (Here’s her link: http://pinkiefae.blogspot.com/ ) so I thought I would steal from her a little bit and try to do a couple days. Magazine Monday will feature ideas or articles that I find in a few magazines I subscribe to, like Fitness and Health. And then Fitness Friday, since that is the day I work out with my trainer and get my new routine for the week, so I can write more about what I am doing on a weekly basis. Let’s see if I hit those goals!
Oh and one last update: 382 Days, 8 hours, 43 minutes and 5 seconds until I turn 50. Oh my.
