It's the halfway point in the 10 week Perfect 10 Challenge!
I was sooo excited this week about my progress... I couldn't wait for today to post my update. :-)
My goals: to exercise 6 days per week, doing 3 days to a DVD, and 4 sessions on the rebounder. Results: accomplished.
The part I was excited about: for the FIRST TIME EVER, I used cute little 1 lb pink dumbells while doing one of the exercise sets on the DVD!! I did that all 3 days this week, and made it the whole song. My muscles were pleading for mercy, and I would have stopped had it been real pain that would re-injure my shoulders. But it was just muscle fatigue, so I PUSHED. I AM STOKED!! Arnold would be proud of me and my girlie girl dumbells! LOL!
Now the fact about me that you don't know:
Before we were married, I once loaned Jim my car to take out another girl!
Yep, you read that right.
I met Jim at church when I was 26 years old, and he was 28. I had a thing for him from the second I laid eyes on him, but he didn't know I existed for several weeks. After that, we were "just friends" for several months.
During our "friend" period, his jeep broke down, and he borrowed my car to take another gal on a date. My family and friends were aghast! But look who's smiling now...in the end, I'm the one that got him. :-D
I strongly believe that part of the reason it worked out for us was because I truly wanted him to be happy... to have the best for his life, even if that didn't include me. That is what love does... it gives. It was not an easy, flippant decision, but it was heartfelt and genuine. And in the end, he came back to ME.
From Dr Phil's book: "Get off your duff and get moving."
My verse for today: "Love is patient, love is kind...It is not easily angered."
My quote for today: "If you would be loved, love and be lovable."--Benjamin Franklin
