Thursday Night Dance Party!

So I’ve been working on my healthier lifestyle for over 45 days. In the beginning, my husband didn’t get it and even poked fun at me a little. It’s funny how quickly things change.

Over the weekend, while I was in the shower, my hubby went on a top secret mission to figure out what size clothes I’ve been wearing. As a non-Valentine’s Day gift, he went out to my favorite store and bought me new clothes in the next size smaller. Jeans, sweaters, the works! It is the most thoughtful thing he has ever done for me before.

Tonight, I decided to have a Thursday Night Dance Party. I do this by myself, in our bedroom while listening to Pandora or Yahoo Music. Usually, I try to dance for at least a half hour. Tonight I got in 50 minutes and burned over 400 calories. While I was dancing the calories away, my husband wandered in. We have a rule about this because I dance like a fool in an effort to burn as many calories as possible, so I look like a dork without any rhythm. Anyhow, he broke the ‘do not enter’ rule and proceeded to tell me how proud he is of me for my dedication to my healthier lifestyle. Talk about melt my heart!

The numbers on the scale haven’t moved this week, but that’s okay because it’s been a great week regardless.

I am a 38 year old wife, mom, sister, auntie, daughter, friend and advocate living in the burbs. In 2012 when I started writing, I was on a journey to take a more healthy approach toward my lifestyle. In 2013, I re-evaluated a lot of things and I say "no" to people, things and commitments more often without guilt. In 2014, I got serious about doing what I want to do and really living life. By 2016, I was so much happier living a life I️ loved. And now in 2017, I’m recommitting to a healthier me while still enjoying all life has to offer. I am excited about my life and where I'm headed with the most amazing people all around me!
