So, according to my original plan I have stuck to "the plan" all week. But, weighed myself wednesday and I was up weight? Hmmm, but I didn't quite, because look where that has gotten me in the past. I haven't had reg coffee or pop/caffeine at all in 2014, have an on and off headache, and am eating like a champ. So where is my gold star?!

Also, I've been stable on the energy level, haven't had ANY low sugar energy dips or any real cravings of grease or sugar. So I guess that can be my winner right there. So I haven't really been tempted to lock myself in a closet and binge. CRYING:: Why scale, just give me 1 less lb.! NOW! YESTERDAY! TODAY! Oye Vey. But it did take me about 5 months to start noticing shoulder & leg muscles. So it may take a month for my body to shrink. I'll take a shrink in my body, over the scale. I have to.

On a happier note, I started coaching little girls gymnastics at the YMCA, I did it last night and it was awesome! Teaching the basic jumps & turns. Just to be in the gym again gives me a sense of satisfaction. I've always loved the smell of the gym, the mats, sweat & chalk. But walking into a gymnastics room is by far one of the best feelings ever. Then to see all the little girls who have stars in their eyes in dreams and hopes of becoming the best gymnast ever! Ugh, to die for! I even get to do a few tricks if the kids don't understand. Which they are young, so a lot of times I say "watch out little one, it's my turn!" totally kidding. So, perhaps, one day, I'll even do a little tumbling of my own, and get a little ab workout in the process. So I guess to tie this in, if there is something you really inspire to do, go and do it. What's stopping you? If you don't try, you get no where. If you have a gift, share it. Whether it's once a week, once a month or once a year. Passion is such a blessing. The older I get, the more I realize that you get one shot, better make the most of it!
