I did my upper body workout tonight and it was GREAT. Nothing like last week. My joints felt so much more stable. No cracking and popping or pain. It was a much more satisfying feeling. The best part was that my fiancé spent the entire outside with me (He didn't work out due to his shoulder injury) During my 'rests' he and I talked about my weight and my goals. He wants so badly to support and encourage me. He asked me what my goal weight was and nearly choked when I told him 130. Then I went on to tell him that I wanted to get to 130 and/or size six before 6/6/6. He asked why I picked that date and other things and then said, "OK, you reach your goal by 6/6/6 and I'll take you anywhere you want to go." It didn't take me long to deside where I wanted to go… Germany. I was born there, left when I was 18 months and have never been back, It's been a lifelong goal of mine to go there. My sweetie disappeared for a little while and then came back and said, "Ok, I've got it figured out. I'm going to save $1200/month and if you reach your goal by 6/6/6, I'll take you to Scottland, England and then Germany. If you don't, well then I guess we don't get to go." He laughed a little about that and I answered, "So, if I don't reach my goal you get to take that money, buy a Porsche and run off with some other woman?" We laughed again. I love that he's so willing to go to any length to help and support me.
Anyway – I'm back on track, I feel great. I feel like I'm doing the right things not only for my shape, but for my health. I like it – now I just need to keep it going.
