cartoon-sun Both literally and figuratively.

After nearly 5 days of relentless, pouring rain, finally today the sun is out.  And with it, my outlook is light and positive.  Today is going to be a great day – nothing specific planned, which means I can do anything that suits me.

One of the things I know I’m going to do is go through the box of old high school photos I picked up at my parents’ house last night.  As I said in that post, I’m looking forward to seeing all of my old high school pals, but I’m also really excited to look back at my thinner self for some inspiration.  I have always been overweight, but in high school overweight was 176 at my heaviest; 87 pounds less than I am right now.  I’m going to use any good pictures I find as motivation that I can be that weight (and even less) again.

Tonight I have my TNT track practice which means that I don’t have go to the gym today to walk on the treadmill!  It’s not that I hate the treadmill or anything, but I much prefer the elliptical machine, yoga, a workout DVD at home, or riding my bike outside in the fresh air.  I think I’m going to do the 30 Day Shred and the BL Yoga DVDs today, because Jillian hasn’t kicked my ass in a while, and after that 20-minute torture session I’m going to need to stretch out and do some yoga with Bob.

Speaking of Bob and Jillian, have you guys been enjoying this season’s Biggest Loser as much as I am?  I love how the contestants are all there for each other, regardless of which team they’re on.  Such a dramatic switch from last season’s Venomous Vicki.  There are a few players who annoy me a bit, but overall, I’m really inspired by all of them.  Tara is a machine!  That girl inspires me to no end.  I would like to think that I’d be able to push myself as much as she does, but I don’t know – she’s unreal.  I also really like the Brown Team – Mikey is so sweet with his father and his father is such a wise man.  I also love Kristen of the Purple Team – she’s a big girl and she never complains about the pain of what she’s doing.  She just digs in and does the workout.  Very inspiring to me. And let’s not forget about the blue team – I have a crush on both of these cousins!  Those guys work really hard but have hearts of gold.  Love them!  It’s so nice to watch the show and just root for the players, rather than seethe about how disgusting the contestants are treating each other. Positivity is so much better.

I can’t wait to see what today brings.  One thing’s for sure – I’ll be out and about in the sunshine as much as possible.
