So another day with Jen Murphy. Another day of feeling like the most out of shape person that ever lived! But towards the end of the session I was able to do things that I couldn't last week. Jen was proud. I was proud. I moved through the session pretty well. Granted I won't be able to wash my hair tomorrow because of the pain my arms and shoulders will be in, but I'm loving it. I'm going to start meeting with her twice a week: one session with Lori and the other with Nykki. It's great because I'm getting twice the training for the price I would pay for one session on my own. It's great motivation.
Another great motivator is my hubby. The other day, as we were folding and putting away laundry, I caught him staring at me. When I asked him why, he said, "everyday you get more and more beautiful. The older you get the more beautiful you are. You're becoming such a beautiful woman..." He killed me with that! He makes me feel so beautiful everyday, but hearing words like that just made me melt over and over again. I'm a lucky woman.
As for my diet it's also going really well. When I was up at my moms doing wedding invites and going through her hope chest (which is being passed down to me and will soon be refinished) I didn't eat anything that would trip me up. My step father has always been a huge junk food junkie and being up at my mom's house is usually torture. Instead I had a few pretzels, an apple, a banana, some strawberries and a fat free sugar free pudding. Yea it's a lot but I was up there for hours and it beats eating badly. I just got home about an hour ago and came up with a delicious way to eat my daily veggies. Try it, it might sound crazy but it's so tasty: Take some tomato, green pepper (or any veggie) and place them on a baking sheet with tin foil on it. Put your oven on broil and then use some wish bone honey mustard spray (the spray dressings) and then put some parm cheese on the top. Pop in the oven for about 5 minutes or until the cheese browns. It's a nice quick and healthy veggie snack that beats having a salad every day. Enjoy! I'm stuffed from it and can't wait to get some fresh veggies to try again. Maybe I can get the hubby to eat it too, but it would have to be made with green beans, he hates tomatoes and peppers. I think I'm becoming a housewife, and I love it... how did this happen?!
