Good April Fool's Day Morning! Snuck in a last soda this morning before the DFW Madness challenge starts :) I've been thinking about the mini challenges and for the no oreos/junk challenge, I'm giving up chocolate chip cookies and the no cussing in front of Amish I'm not going to weigh myself everyday, just once a week. This is going to be a hard habit to break and I might have to hide my scale, but I let this silly number dictate how I feel about myself too much!

Weekend was good, didn't overeat yesterday, but did have a few pieces of the kid's candy. They got a ton, I'm going to have to bring some in to work! My son and I went for a meandering walk around town Saturday and I wore my pedometer. We ended up walking 1.7 miles. I was so proud of him!!

So yesterday I saw some family members who have been working to lose weight (shakeology, which I can't wrap my head around, why not replace your meal with whole, clean foods? If you don't learn to eat right isn't the weight going to come back on when you stop the shakes?) Anyhoo, they are both skinny. Skinny skinny and I was sitting there wanting to ask what they now weigh, but I didn't. I was thinking is my goal weight too low? Probably not, but they've lost their butts, boobs and hips. They look like sticks. I don't want to look like a stick. I've always had a poochy butt, but not much in the boobs. I want a flat stomach, one of the sticks doesn't have a flat stomach, my roll isn't that much bigger than hers and I probably outweigh her by 25 pounds now. So that got me thinking, should I be so concerned with the number on the scale? Thus stopping weighing myself daily. I want to learn to eat better and continue to get stronger, healthier and toned with exercise, but I don't want to be a stick.

I think you're doing the right thing. Are the skinny chicks going to have nothing but shakes their entire life? It's all about finding a way to live that you can well... live with. And just remember. Skinny chicks look good in clothes but fit chicks look good naked. I'd rather be in streaking shape any day! You never know when you have to run through the house in nothing but a towel then one of the kids thinks oooooooh hey game! next thing you know.. no towel. Or you're trying to get dressed but for some reason EVERYONE needs something. Next thing you know there is an audience of 4 and you're trying to shimmy into panties while holding a towel in place. Never stays.. ever. I'll bet you might outweigh them by a lil but you probably look 10 times better. And.. you'll be able to open a pickle jar, pick up groceries, smack them then outrun them! Crap.. no sleep + coffee = well.. this.
