In my mind this morning, I had it that I was going to talk about how I'm an almost forty-year-old woman (yes, it's not for a couple more years yet, but it's killing me – in my mind I'm still 22) with two kids and how could I still expect to have the same body I had when I was twenty and in the Army. I was forming the words in my head. Then, I came to work and jumped on the scale.
And . . .
I lost two pounds! Can you believe that crap!
I feel energized. I'm dancing in my chair as we speak. Granted, I have my headphones on and I'm acting like I'm typing a transcription for work when I'm actually typing this blog post and listening to Janet Jackson "All For You," but that's another story.
Now that I got my weekly confession out the way . . .. The biggest transition for me is working out and staying motivated to do so. Last night I set my alarm clock for 4:30AM so that I'd have time to work out before I had to get ready to work out before I had to get ready for work, and this morning it went off at 4:30AM, funny how those things work out like that. Somehow, (and I have NO IDEA how this keeps happening) the snooze button keeps getting hit. Then the next thing I know, the baby is in his room making noises, I get up and bring him into bed with us and get him settled and the next thing I know, it's 6:45AM and I'm jumping out the bed like a mad woman and rushing around so I'm not late for work.
With work, I don't get home until 6:00 PM, by the time I cook dinner, harass the kids, and finally get them down, I'm exhausted and ready for bed.
It would be nice if I had a gym here at work, that way I could go to lunch a little bit earlier work out and then take a quick shower and . . .
Umm, wait, there is a small a weight room at my job. Isn't that convenient!
I have no clue how to work the weights, but there's a treadmill, an elliptical. I could use those. Also, since the state of Michigan is finally coming to recognize that it's spring outside and not winter, I can get up early on the weekends and run around my neighborhood.
So that's my plan.

Day 22: 148 pounds
