Getting it in Gear!

Posted on: June 11, 2015

Today I worked out with weights first thing in the morning , committing myself to daily workouts. 

This blogging thing and seeing pictures is just the reality check I needed…

When I did body measurements I confirmed what I already knew…

In the past any weight gain I’ve done so very evenly gaining the same number of inches in my chest, waist and hips…

This time my chest didn’t change at all and my waist bloomed 4inches while my hips only 2 inches…

This 15 pound gain at the stage of menopause is definitely showing!

These pants are by Old Navy, but I scored them on clearance so they are sold out.  

With tighter waist than the shorts I wore the other day with the navy peplum top, 

it doesn’t look anywhere near as good…

I do like this side pose, lol…

I am finding it funny that I have owned this bow necklace for over a year and not worn it much, yet have worn it twice in just a week or so..

I got it from Ebay, Here.  and my purse from Amazon, Here. 

Dear Readers, At 11:30 pm I showed my husband the second picture above and told him how unhappy I am with this stupid gain and he said, “I guess it’s too late to go for a walk”   and I replied, “No it’s not if you are game , so am I”

Yep, We did it an hour walk at midnight!!!! 

My supportive husband will think twice before saying anything like that again…It just proves how dedicated I am to getting this off and getting back to loving getting dressed daily.   

Gratitude

I am grateful to my husband for being such a great sport and taking me for a late night walk.  

I am grateful that I have always been a woman of spontaneity! 

I am grateful for my blog and the pictures that make it impossible to ignore what the weight has done to my shape. 

I am grateful to my dear daughter for keeping her word to her younger brother and making him a really cool Minecraft cake, made of Rice Krispy treats, blue jello, chocolate cake and green icing.. She missed his birthday in April because she was in graduate school… and she is heading back a week from today for a Summer class..

I am grateful for the fun I had tonight writing Haiku’s when challenged to do so on the group Facebook page for the GYPO Summer Challenge.  I will share at least one with you tomorrow!

Did you use a flashlight on your midnight jaunt? It’s good to want to get back into shape, but don’t forget, Tracey, you are beautiful with or without that extra weight and inches! Those colors in your outfit are wonderful and that necklace is perfect!!! jodie

No flashlight , but perhaps I should have since the street lights are out in so many places on my street. We have a route that is all on main roads. Thank you , I know it doesn’t change me to gain weight, it’s not ok for a prediabetic and it puts a damper on my styling outfits… Thank you for your kind words!
