Each year schools all over the U.S. celebrate their 100th day. By the 100th day of school this year my little girl could read a chapter book on her own, tell time, measure, write neatly and spell all kinds of new words. My son who is a fourth grader was writing reports on his own, reading books all the Percy Jackson books and even starting The Hobbit. He could convert fractions to decimals and knew a great deal about California’s history.
My three-year olds, three months ago could not put on their own clothes and shoes and were not potty trained. However today they can dress themselves and use the restroom. I got rid of all the left over pull ups today. I did a happy dance.
However all this 100 day accomplishment got me thinking – what could I do in 100 days. Two years ago I was celebrating the loss of 22 lbs. Now I am mourning the return of 20 lbs.
We all fall down. But this time I want to lose the weight and keep it off. So for the next 100 days I am committing to working out and tracking all my calories to see what kind of difference that makes. I know I can lose the weight this time and keep it off. No more stress eating – I can do this. I know I can.
So here it goes – my before picture…
I will keep you posted with the workouts that I like and how things are going. I will include pictures and try to keep my true to my modest self. A tank top and capris is as close to a bikini as I will ever get.
Here’s to the next 100 days,
