determination & motivation

Im determined and motivated to do so much in my life. I've accomplished more than I thought possible... except... why they hell can't I finish this damn book?! HA! Why can't I finish an entire pan of brownies? Ok, I can, but I dont. I want to, but I know it's not the smart thing to do. I'm on this weight watchers kick. I downloaded the app onto my iPhone so I can scan products and track my points on the go. I've been doing a decent job. I'm back to the weight I was before I got knocked up with my last kiddo. I've got about 25-30 more to go before I reach my pre-twin pregnancy weight.

It's not always easy to get in a workout chasing the twins and juggling a baby. Yes, that may seem like a workout in itself, but that's just my sanity running on a treadmill. Luckily, I've been able to workout on a pretty consistent basis. Kathy Smith and that crazy lady from Turbo Jam have been my DVD saviors; kicking my fat ass into gear and motivating me with their tight abs. Abs I wont see again without surgery...thanks to those twin demons! I do believe that getting a good workout can happen unexpectedly. After baking that delicious pineapple upside down cake my oven began smoking due to some of the cake dripping over to the bottom. Germany homes aren't known for their ventilation systems. Once the smoke started filling the room it was only seconds before the smoke detectors began blaring. I opened the windows and turned on all of the fans, but they just kept going. So for 25 straight minutes I fanned the 3 smoke detectors using my big couch pillows. Gabby tried to help with her baby blanket, but I dont think it worked. Finally, my husband came to my rescue and made it all stop. The next day I couldn't figure out why my shoulders, back and triceps were in such agonizing pain. Felt like I had been hit by a bus! Then it hit me (not the bus, the answer) I was fanning those detectors with such ferocity that I actually grabbed a quick workout!

I am very thankful for the friends I've met here in Germany. Not only do they cook great delicious foods, but they invite me over all the time to tease me with them. They mock my flab with their tantalizing delicacies. Their names will be protected, but not because they are innocent! The reality is, without them I wouldn't have the motivation to get up on Saturday morning and fight the freezing Germany weather just to hop on a spin bike. Without them, I wouldn't have anyone to complain to about my lack of weight loss. Ok, enough talk of me losing weight. It's time to start dinner :)
