Saturday, June 30, 2012 DINNER!

OMFG I missed food!
 I have allowed myself whatever whenever all week. And managed to lose another pound, weird!
Now I need a NEW goal.
My arms truly bother me, so I was pondering weights, COMMANDO training for my arms. The skin will never /go back/ but I could beef it up a bit and make my arms look strong! Hmmm..
And I am thinking about perhaps, oh why do I even say stuff like this, about training for a marathon. Sheesh. There really is no rest for the wicked!
*evil grin*
Until I fly by again..
ALWAYS use a condom,

2 Sleeps!

The count down has begun,
2 sleeps until I will want to die..
and then I will feel reborn..
and then I get to eat cake!

Omg, I am so excited!

If I were a man, I would be sporting some wood right now at merely the thought of glorious, beautiful, delicious, mouth watering CAKE!


Breathing deeply, as always,

Muay Thai Nationals - June, 2012!

This past weekend, my youngest doll face, hubby and I made a ROAD TRIP to Calgary, AB to support our gym & The Fight Team! It was pretty low key, with a minor in tow. Making the experience all the more wonderful.

Baby Sparkle is completely pumped and totally wants to try out for the Fight Team, as does my better half. HOLY COW BATMAN!

Ugh, one goal that is TOTALLY NOT MINE OR FOR ME! I will be eating a cookie, cheering loudly, from the sidelines. And THAT thought feels heavenly!

We will have our very own fight club, TEAM SPARKLE, come the fall; they have decided to make the rigorous training schedule their goal! AWESOME!

I swell with pride, then giggle at the word -swell-...

Until I feel the need be blabber, again,

Sixteen Candles - SLEEPS!

In sixteen sleeps, I will have completed, yet another, mind bending, world shattering, GOAL!

Okay, not so much news worthy for anyone but me, my mind and my body :)

Over the past 11 weeks I have been totally pissed off at this "stupid goal". I have cried. I have pushed myself harder than thought imaginable. I allowed no mercy to take place.

And then..I added, onto the 30 lbs 'to lose' goal and 30 km run.. 100 BURPEES daily, for 100 days..

Some days, a lot of days, I wanted to just curl up and suck my thumb, rock back n forth and hum alone, to myself, quietly as I sobbed.

But. I didn't. Cos I am, Wonder Woman!
Uh, perhaps I did, but I am certain there wasn't any video or anything incriminating! Ha!

Consequently and rather shockingly (men, don't like to see their wives sad - uncomfortable - upset, they like to 'fix' it) my husband became my greatest supporter and fan. I really believed he would tell me to 'stop it', 'he loves me for me', blah, blah, blah - which, I knew already; three times a charm, duh.

Convincingly, he gave me the edge I needed. Joined up to do 100 BURPEES for 100 days, WITH me! ****When I roll, literally, out of bed at 4:30am, he smiles and tells me how amazing I am.
When travel to the city for Muay Thai class at night ( I made it to the advanced class - yaya!) each night he comments on my progress and awesomeness - btw, he uses that word! Ending our journey, together, for another day, before I slip into my 5 hour coma, he strokes my hair, expressing how much he loves me, how proud he is of me..

I guess, really. How could I go wrong with such AWESOME support?

Now don't go all woman lib on me. I would do this with or without a man. I am just uber grateful for having Seamus, IE: Thor, holding my hand - helping me up - when needed.
My kids are trying to figure it all out. Apparently they were young enough when I was HUGE and losing they don't recall that beginning episodes to awesomeness as vividly as myself. They are aware, absolutely, of my choices effecting the outcome of my successes. Physical activity is apart of each of their individual lives. They get THAT part. However... Can you even begin to comprehend how hard it is to turn down a Moolatte from Dairy Queen, from your eldest visiting son, who thought he was making his momma's day, gifting her with ice cream, HER ABSOLUTELY FAVORITE food?

It's all about learning. It's about my mind becoming stronger.
Purpose and direction.
Courage and vulnerability.
Desire and strength.

Now, with all that rambling, I STILL HAVE WORK TO DO!

I will accept any friendly thoughts, prayers and I thank you for them ALL!

Wonder Why..

UPDATE: Today, just mere moments ago, that same cute-head-man-cub of a son, took me for lunch, a salad :)
Thank you Boy Wonder, Momma loves you T-H-I-S much!
