Life is all about choices. We all make them every day!
I went to the gym last week, and I decided to take my workout up a notch. I decided to put the elliptical machine at the highest level.
I have never done that before!
It was tough at first, but luckily I had some new motivating music on my Blackberry.
I was so motivated while working out, that I did not realize I was REALLY dancing to the music.
Not like a little boogie, but like a full N Sync dance. When I was done, I felt great!
I saw a couple of girls laughing at me because of my “Bye, Bye, Bye” dance.
I don’t blame them, my dancing was a bit silly.
At work, I was walking around with a head of cauliflower, chomping away!
Yep, just like this video, I truly love cauliflower!
No seasoning, no sauce, just a head of cauliflower.
A few of my employees were laughing at me.
“You know, you could just cook it. You do work in a kitchen!”
I don’t blame them for laughing at me.
Eating a head of cauliflower is a bit silly!
Yesterday, I went to the grocery store. I made the mistake of not eating before I got there, so I was HUNGRY!!!! I looked around for something to snack on, and I finally found a bag of 6 hard boiled eggs. I opened the bag, popped the eggs in my mouth like they were TicTac’s , and kept the wrapper so I could pay for it at the cash out line.
When I went to pay, the cashier looked at the empty wrapper and said laughing:
“Wow! That is the first time I have ever seen someone eat eggs in a grocery store before!”
I agreed with her. It was a bit silly!
Earlier today, my wife took a few pictures of me in some old clothing. I donated all of my clothes, but these pants were in such bad shape, I was just going to throw them out. But, before I did, I wanted one last dance with the pants!
After seeing me in these pants, my wife and I started to laugh. Not only were these pants HUGE on me now, but they were small on me at one time in my 400 pound days.
It is silly to think this is the way I once lived.
So this evening, I went to my weigh in at Weight Watchers. The meeting was about restaurant foods and good choices. I went to get weighed in, and I lost 1.2 pounds. That is 213.6 pounds lost in less than a year. In fact, I have only gained .2 pounds one time during this journey. I have lost consistently every other week!
I thought about all of my choices this week. As silly as they were, they were the right ones for me, and I am glad I made them!
