Last night I talked with a microphone in front of a crowd of people about my weight-loss. I was 1 of 3 speakers at the event called Total Woman by NORTHSTAR Health System. I was extremely nervous but near the end I loosened up. The first speaker talked about Tai Chi and did a demonstration & the second one talked about nutrition. I really enjoyed myself and am flattered I was asked to talk at such a thing!
I still have 50 more pounds I would like to lose before my wedding. Even though its months away I feel like I am running out of time! Not only in weigh-loss but with my planning as well! I have been crazy busy lately with other things and I have been putting off other parts of the wedding. Also everything is so expensive! I can only move as fast as my paychecks come – lol – Slowly but surely I am getting things done 1 step at a time. I know it will all come together & I need to remember not to stress so much because after all it is a happy time!
I haven’t worked out yet but the night is still young. I have been eating a banana for breakfast every morning and drinking over 75oz of water a day. I could be doing better with my green tea but it’s hard to do it when I drink so much water lol – I also have 2 black cups of coffee in the morning. 1 on the way to work and then another when I get to the office. I think I’ll do better with my green tea if I make it in big batches and keep it in the fridge. I am not sure if that would affect its…ahhh… purpose…or goodness? I can’t think of the word right now but you guys know what I mean! I hope – lol – My brain has been on vacation today!
Any who, I hope you all have a great weekend & stay positive my friends :-)
