"Sinus Headaches Suck"
"Oh, God, the Mucus!" or...
"NyQuil is What Death Tastes Like"
Sooo, in order to spare you, I stayed away. The good news is that I still ate really well while sick. I mean, there is no point in eating delicious, "bad" foods when you cannot even taste them. I mean, seriously, a carrot stick tastes the same as a Reese's cup when you have a bad head cold. The bad news is that I did not work out at all this week. I don't feel bad about it because I was not well. I am feeling much better today though and am looking forward to my big return to the gym tomorrow evening.
ANYWAY, since I am linking up for Motivation Monday this week, I thought it only appropriate to come up with some things to motivate me. I have decided to reward myself when I reach certain weight loss milestones. These are all THINGS I really really want and am refusing to buy myself until I meet my goals.
Health is always my first motivation, but these extra things can't hurt either.
A new beauty product -- like a scented body wash or lotion. I LOVE the Philosophy scents.
|This is by far my favorite scent! I smell like a delicious when I use it! Yes, I enjoy smelling like baked goods. They don't have this scent anymore, but they DO have a birthday cake scent, that I think will be a welcome substitute!|
New headphones that are better for working out. My earbuds are constantly falling out!
|I have heard really good things about Yurbuds earbuds. They are made especially for exercise. The price is right and they come in purple. Score!|
A professional massage! (My gym has a spa inside. Members get discounts on all spa
services. Sweet!) Never in my 34 years have I had a professional massage. I am hoping this year is the year!
Manicure and Pedicure -- I get these very rarely...cause I am cheap. I think 40 pounds deserves a splurge though, don't you?
New clothes! Hell yeah! I cannot wait to go shopping with a smaller body.
I think all of these things sound reasonable! I know that all of my victories will not be measured on a scale. I will celebrate those too...trust me! It is just that trying to lose weight has always been such a frustrating journey for me. I am trying to put a positive spin on things. So, I choose to celebrate the victories (no matter what they may be) and learn from the setbacks.
Have a great Monday, everyone!
