What Ever Happened To Predictability?

Well, I started on week 4 of the gym today.  Pats on the back for me for sticking to it and going at least 5 times a week.  I'm about to turn 30 in one month and I don't want to start my 30's feeling all dumpy.  My goal 3 weeks ago was to lose 10 pounds before my big birthday outing.  I don't know if that is going to happen.  I've lost 3 pounds but to me that's just the normal up and down weight loss and gain that I have all the time. I want to see some BIG results. Some smaller pant size results.  I'm counting my calories and doing cardio for at least 40 minutes a day so what's up with not seeing ANY results.  I've always heard that you have to wait at least 6 weeks to see any kind of difference so I'm trying to be patient. I'm really trying.  A few weeks ago I saw Candace Cameron Bure on the Today show promoting her new book.  Immediately I told myself I had to have it! I think she's a fantastic role model. Tell me a time when you've seen her in the news for doing something inappropriate or negative.  I mean she's Donna Jo Tanner!! It doesn't get any more wholesome than that! 

The Borders store in my area is going out of business so my brother and I journeyed up there last Sunday and this was the first book on my list.  I searched every book in the Biography/Autobiography section.  Not there.  I searched the entire Self Help/Inspirational section.  Not there.  I asked a salesman if he knew if they had this book.  His reply was "no". "No, you don't have it or no, you don't know if you have it?" I asked him.  With sweat dripping all down his face he told me, "They took our computer system away. So, I don't know."  From his reply it sounded like he was very upset with whoever "they" are.  I finally made my way to the Religion section and started my search, head tilted sideways, reading book spine after book spine until I found it.  The only copy on the shelf and it was about to be all mine. Mine I tell you!!! 

I'm very excited to start this book.  I hope it helps me take a different approach to working out and eating right.  I know it will happen sooner or later but I just have to be strong and stop putting all the yummy goodness out in the world into my mouth.  Just STOP already!!! I'm tired of throwing pity parties for myself when my jeans are too tight or my stomach lops over my pants.  I'm done with it!! If anyone has any good tips or healthy recipes please feel free to leave them as a comment. 

Bring it on Thirty!!! Let's be fabulous together!!!
