LAST POST BLOG365 AND 2008!!
Holy cow, I did it blog365!
Patting myself on the back.
My goal was to go home roasted brown like a turkey. I just wanted to drink in some sun, store up some vitamin D, and go home cooked. The weather wasn't on my side. The first full day was overcast, yesterday was nice, but I held back and applied some serious sunscreen (base tan people!) because today I was going to go all out with some (bring me back to my childhood) coconut scented oil. Yeah, I was going to grease up, like the old days! But today, NO SUN. As a matter of fact we were forced indoors by the rain. I am going home with a tan, but not a professional sunbather (leather couch) type tan. I have more of a fun in the sun type tan. I'm sure I'll be thankful for the Bahamian cloudiness of this vacation when I look in the mirror 20 years from now.
I picked up a copy of US magazine at the airport because the last Biggest Loser was on the cover. She said that once she went home for the second stage home part she spent 4 hours a day at the gym, 8 hours a day towards the end SIX days a week. I'm sitting around these days trying to figure out if I can commit to 4 hours a day at the gym for the duration of the next fattie contest at the posh club. The last fattie contest was 8 weeks, and I am kind of hoping that the next one is for 10 or 12 weeks. I think that if I try to do it within the confines of the fattie contest, I'll be able to see the light at the end of tunnel, and be able to pullout all the stops for some quick pound loss. The one thing this weight loser said in her interview was that she had to change to change her relationship with food. I have to do that. I have to stop using food the way I do, to soothe myself, and start eating because I need fuel to keep on going. Knowing what I have to do and learning how to do it are two different things. I have to focus on this why exactly I am eating in therapy. Focusing will be my New Years resolution. Usually I do not make New Years Resolutions. Today is a special day. I think focusing would be a more constructive type goal than the result it is apt to bring.
New Years Resolution: Focus!
The husband and I are going to go to some kind of party they are throwing here at the hotel. My dad and the kids are going to hang in the room, order room service and watch movies.
I saw Roger Clemens at the dolphin cay, where the kids did a swim with the dolphins thing, this morning. I could have asked for a photo, but I decided to let him have some peace with his kids. I hear that Magic Johnson is here now too. Paul O'Neil is here too.
I'm keeping a list of famous folks I see at the party tonight. But I'm leaving the camera with the kids so they can take photos with my dad. (Priorities!)
Happy New Years Everyone!
