mother/daughter conversation

This, after my last post about living the same day over and over. It was my own little Ground Hog Day. Only I would call it Big Fat Hog Day!

Tracy:  Buck up!

Me:  That’s easy for you to say.

Tracy:  I don’t think it’s easy for me to say. Not at all. But it is what you would say to me.

Me:  I would say snap out of it!!!!!

Me again:  It’s all, at the moment, a moot point because I DID buck up and I DID snap out of it! I was 150 the other day and just about screamed myself to death! But, I’ve been down a pound each day and I’ve been exercising, so there yah go. 147. I’m going to get where I want to be. And, I didn’t buy any clothes for myself while I was in Logan last weekend because I refuse to reward bad behavior! Hopefully, I’ll get another 30% off coupon from Kohl’s sometime when I finally weight 142 or so. THEN I’ll buy something. Till then, I’ve got money in the bank!

Me:  Hey, I just joined the gym! [So much for money in the bank . . .]

Tracy:  WHAT?

Me:  Yup!

Tracy:  When did all this happen?

Me:  Today! I talked to Clint this morning when he was at the HS with the swim team running laps and I asked him how much it was.

Tracy:  And?

Me: $300 a year!

Tracy: You could do it for free at the HS!

Me: I could but I won’t. I know, because I could have and I didn’t!

Me, again: I went in this morning when I was on the mail/freight/supply run and saw that it was actually only $175 for a Senior! YAY! I am a Senior!!!!! I plopped down my $175 [plus a $20 key deposit] and skipped merrily to my car!

After work I ran home and changed into some simply horrifying clothes — old sweats I haven’t worn for five years — and went to the gym!

My first day as an official card-holding contracted Bradshaw Fitness gym member!

-I walked/ran on the treadmill for 5 minutes
-I did the elliptical for 5 minutes
-I rode the bike for 5 minutes, then found the remote so I decided to also
-Walk/run on the treadmill for another 5 minutes.

And, according to all the little LTD lights and bells and whistles I actually burned off approximately 70 calories!


[A little less than the three Kashi Peanuty Dark Chocolate Layered Granola Bars I ate on the way to the gym. But who’s counting?]

[Umm, yah. They’re 130 each!]

    Way to go! BUT, you are not a blubber-filled body! Not at all. You are a beautiful daughter of God and I think you are wonderful and look wonderful as well.
