    Oprah Was Talking To Me!

    Wed, Nov 28, 2007

    Getting Started

    It was the strangest thing.

    I was having a totally blah day, dragging my rear, I have been feeling a little out of sorts the past few days.

    Then I ran out of coffee and decided to quit – again – I had kicked it for a full year and slowly went back to it.

    So, although today is the day I have vowed to get active again, I’ve let it slide enough lately that I am developing
    my old paunch again, I decided to treat myself to one of my old stand by’s on days like this – ice cream with real maple
    syrup and rice krispies. It works for me! But not my paunch.

    Anyway, I decide since I’m dragging around to watch Oprah, one of my favourite shows, while eating.

    I turn it on and immediately groan, of course she’s doing a show on weight loss today.

    They cut to commercial, and when they come back, she turns around, looks at the camera and says, she’s talking
    to me!

    She’s talking to the one on the couch who is having problems with the last ten lbs and sitting on the couch eating a bag
    of chips!

    I looked around, sure enough there was no one else beside me, so I figured she was talking to me with the ice cream too.

    I hate when that happens :0)

    Anyway, if you where munching on the couch too, don’t despair. Oprah is right.

    We can beat that last 10lbs, and more.

    Today I have pledged to take 1/2 hour for myself and exercise.

    I don’t know what I’m doing yet, but I will be doing something.

    How about you?

    BTW, the ice cream was worth it, but I won’t be going for another bowl for awhile :0)

    Especially when I’m watching Oprah (who appears to be watching me too).

    It is definitely the time of year to be getting back on board with a Fit Yummy Mummy 12 Week Challenge – I am counting down the days to being 10lbs lighter and 12 weeks stronger!

    Holly gives us assignments throughout the challenge, today it is to examine perfection and the effect that it has on our results – and how it can more likely than not cause more trouble than it saves. I am looking at that today.

    How about you. Has perfection ever brought you down in your efforts to lose weight or get healthier?
