Descending....

....well, at least my weight is!  :D  Down 4.6lbs this week.  SCORE!  So after two weeks of my new (shhhhh) secret life changing habits I have lost a total of 8.8lbs.  I guess my body likes even numbers.  ;)  I would like to see how I do after a month and then maybe I will feel secure enough to share with you what I am doing.  Gosh, it sounds so covert ops but it's really not.  It's just that I enjoy keeping it to myself at the moment.  A few folks know out of necessity but I am asking them to zip the lip and not let it slip.  Ahahahah..... rhyming.  Oy.

I am feeling really good, lots of energy.  I started doing yoga again.  Baby steps of course but I have already noticed a difference, more space in my lower back...etc.  Since I have been working so much, getting to the gym has been really difficult so I decided to reactivate my Netflix account and started getting workout DVDs delivered.  If you have any you can recommend please share.  I have come to realize that I enjoy working out in the morning during the summer months.  After I get off of work I just want to play and hang out with my friends and family.  Working out in the morning makes that easier and less stressful since I can just shower and get ready at home.

According to my rewards list I am able to gift myself with a gorgeous new nail polish color.  I am hoping to get to either Ulta or Sephora this weekend to pick up a lovely neutral.  Even though I really want a funky mermaid green, I have come to realize that, at my size, painting my toes myself is really difficult and messy.  With a neutral I can hide my mistakes a little better and when I want something sassier I will head to the spa for some delicious pedi/mani love.

Have a wonderful week!

I am so proud of you. So so so so so proud. I have a yoga dvd that I really like. It's an element dvd called AM & PM Yoga for beginners. The AM video is for invigoration and strength and the PM video is for release and balance. So good. Each video is only 30 minutes, too, so you can fit one in a busy morning or right before bed. :)

Eight pounds! Wow! That's fabulous. I feel sad that you're not getting the mermaid green. My toenail-varnishing tip, in case it's any good - do them as best as you can, putting on a bit more rather than a bit less. Have a bath or shower a couple of hours later, and you'll be able to peel off the bits that went on your toes rather than your nails, leaving nice neat coverage. Go for the green?
