During my lunch break today I quickly phoned my Mum to touch base and she asked me what I was doing this weekend. When I told her I was booked in to do a German Christmas Baking Course she replied in her huffy voice “I don’t know why you would do that. You don’t even eat it”.
Normally I would have been upset or offended because she can’t just be happy for me. There is always judgement and criticism around how, what, when and where I eat. But today I simply replied “because I enjoy it”.
That, my friends, is a huge NSV for me xx

That other person frequently orders delivery or brings home huge amounts of fast food. Last night when I looked at the stack of three pizza boxes he was calling his dinner, I had my moment of clarity. 88 days of sticking to a goal is all that separates us. He could have been equally successful, had he put in his own 88 days. Each time he mindlessly gorges takes him another step away from where he wishes he was. Each pre-planned meal takes me a step closer. That's all it is - 88 days of choices.
The time flew by, and so now I'm looking ahead with a new appreciation of what I can accomplish by Day 176

I walked to Pilates in new leggings that were pretty darn flattering.
Shopkeeper locking up for the evening said,”Girl, you look like a million bucks!” as I walked past. It’s a super fashionable men’s boutique and this guy always looks like he’s stepped right out of GQ. That meant a lot since I let myself run towards the “slob” end of the fashion spectrum the past few years.
Someone commented after class that I’m looking really “solid” from behind (we’ve been taking the same classes for years- she likes the back row and I always go for the first row).
But best of all, my balance is finally improving, I’m not falling out of every balance pose, and it’s silly, but after class, I realized I can stand on one leg to put each sock on, without having to prop myself on something. That is a big deal for me right there!
And I went shopping at Macy’s with a very petite friend yesterday for a mother-of-the-bride dress. I had to size down twice and realized I ended up with the same size she wears. That was a shocker.
I’ve got a dress and a backup dress. And both look great on me! And I bought some sexy heels and makeup, lol. I haven’t worn either in years. May need lessons! I feel all Pygmalion.
