After 32 wonderful years, perhaps I am finally growing up. Instead of being worried today about who is going to remember my birthday, etc., I have a strong desire to call/email the people in my life who have made a difference for me. Not to hint reminders about what today is, but to say Thank You! What is life without family and friends?
Okay, I originally came in to make note of something I observed last night. I have been on a high protein, high fruits and veggies, low fat, low “empty” carb, low calorie diet for a couple of months now. I’ve lost quite a bit of weight, but more importantly, I’m re-learning *how* to eat. I’ve also been exercising regulary, 4-6 times a week, including both cardiovascular, toning, and core exercise (along with warm-up and cool-down, of course). So… last night I must have had an itchy spot on the side of my thigh, because I was rubbing it rather firmly. I had the sudden realization that there was actually *Muscle* under there! What a thrill! More Muscle = increasing my metabolism = burning more calories = getting off my “plateau”. Besides that, muscle looks better than what I’ve been carrying around for the last few years. 🙂
