Going back to the basics…

My daughter told me that they are moving the wedding up. I now have until October (or end of September) to get my ass in gear. I want to look good to give my daughter away.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
No MuuMuu Mommy Matron Gown for Me.ย  No flowered and fringed sleeve monstrosity either. I never understood the logic of putting a flower print on a size 22 (the size I used to be). I used to feel like a walking flower bed. Bees would follow me around. And why sequins and fringes added as Lagniappe? Do women really want to look like a flowered disco ball?ย  I never did! I am hoping that the full figured fashions have changed since then.
Anyhoo…gonna be strict about my carb intake, my water intake and my exercise regimen.ย  I am removing all negative influences from my life in honor of my 43rd birthday. Life is too short to have unnecessary drama in your life. It just makes you miserable and old looking. ๐Ÿ™‚
I’m gonna TRY to quit smoking…I have cut back because I actually LIKE oxygen when I am working out. I will not drink during the week. Actually I will only drink in social settings. Since I am not the big social butterfly I think that would be a great step in the right direction. I am paying 23.00 a month for water so I will be drinking that distilled water by the gallons. My eating will be clean. ๐Ÿ™‚ I will go by body measurements and the way I look in clothes.ย  I hate the scales (it lies) so I will probably weigh once a month just to see where I stand.
Tonight will be the Commitment DVD by Billy Blanks. Because I am seriously committed to reaching my goal by October.
I’m the Bride’s Mother…doesn’t mean I need to look the part.
