Looking forward to next week

Ha! Cute joke. I'm hating my buddha belly lately. It is bigger than a few months ago. It seems after having a baby c-section, I got this awful little buddha belly and I hate it!! Not a beer belly but still.....It's my driving force lately to get thinner. Lose the buddha!!! But, even though I had a little loss this week, it is something. Usually, when I get back to serious dieting and fitness I can lose like 3 lbs in the first week and that will give me inspiration/motivation. But, I haven't been totally clean with my eating so that didn't happen. I'm still craving some of the crap. So, I need to work on that! Thanks for all your comments about the wt loss. I'm feeling hopeful again.

I picked up the the book 'You can heal your life' by Louise Hay that someone recommended. Looks like a book that will take a lot of time to read and then to work out the exercises. I'm hoping it can help me deal with emotional eating/being overweight and some other issues that I need to work on. I was preusing the book "mindless eating" and it seemed very interesting. Has anyone read this one? Maybe I'll see if I can find it at the local library.

I'm looking forward to next week. I get some free time when my hubby and son go to Oklahoma in a week and then I will be off to vegas to visit my friend Dawn. I'm hoping she is off of her chemo or at least feeling pretty good so then I can cheer her up and take her out for some fun or just sitting by the pool. I would really love to work out or go walking with her but she has had no energy during her treatment so we'll see. Looks like sun down there so I'm psyched! And wondering what I'll do with all my free time. You know when you have a child you get very little free time. It's always another's needs before your own so when you get some free time, I'm thinking what is it the heck that I like to do!!! So far what's come to mind, is go on a long bike ride as I need to work on my training for the tri. Maybe go see a movie like spiderman or kind of want to see 'lucky you' (I think it's called) or 'premonition' look interesting. Or get a pedicure, gotta have one for vegas! And read an entire book that I never have time to do! Or visit a friend that is going through a divorce and just moved out. You can tell I'm excited at the prospects.
Hope everyone is having a good week on your own living healthy plans.
