Still Curvy

9 Jul

Hey friends!  Happy almost middle of July!

WHAT?!?  Where has the summer gone?  I can’t believe it’s already July 9th.  We’re at the point where there’s only a month left of summer camp.  I can’t believe how quickly the summer has flown by!  I guess that’s what happens when you work almost every day.

And we’ve been busy with other things too.  We kicked off the summer with a bridal shower, followed by our first wedding of the summer; we have 5 total!  We’ve been camping, had a garage sale, a Fourth of July cookout, and family stay with us.  Whew…I get tired thinking of how busy we’ve been.  And we still have much coming – the 4 other weddings, which include a trip to Minnesota and a trip to Idaho; black raspberry picking and jam/ice cream/whatever else we can think of making; and hopefully some fishing.  It’s been a pretty good summer so far!

The only thing I wish I’d been more on top of is going to Curves.  I’m still really loving the work out, but I’ve been a bit lazy.  I’ve been tired from working in the kitchen and having a fluctuating schedule.  But today, I made the decision to get off my lazy butt and get back to it.

I was more than a little nervous to go in and get on the scale.  I haven’t been eating well or terribly.  Kind of right down the middle.  And the only exercise I was getting, was my steps while in the kitchen.  But everything turned out ok.  I lost a couple pounds from my last weigh in and also lost 4 inches.

So, I started Curves on March 17.  Today is July 9.  So, in almost 4 months I’ve lost 12 pounds and 16.25 inches.  I’m so happy with these results!  Sometimes I wish it was more, but I can feel my body becoming more balanced and I’m happy I’m doing it with very little medication.  I’m actually weaning myself off the only medication I’m taking.  I am supplementing with vitamins.  I’m eating better, most of the time, but I know my body needs the extra push of vitamins and minerals.

I hope your summer is going well!  We’ve had beautiful weather, too!  It seems the rain comes exactly when we need it and then we have nice warm days.  It really doesn’t get much better than that!
