I have a new goal. A goal I hope to get you all to make with me. A goal to make every Sunday… Sensational!
My first Sensational Sunday started with a bang! A little feel good closet clean up. I decided to combat my Friday Pizza woes with a feel good clothing purge. I went through all of my old jeans, wait, let me rephrase that to sound even better, all of my old “skinny jeans” and tried them on. I would wear these jeans when feeling good and having a little success on my many weight loss journeys. Jeans I strived to get back into with each weight loss attempt. Jeans I was keeping around because a small part of me didn’t really believe I became the size I am today. Well I’m happy to say they are gone! I donated them and said goodbye to that size. I’m also happy to report that I tried on each pair and as I slipped baggy pair by baggy pair on I felt more and more empowered. That’s an odd word but it’s true. I threw away pair after pair of jeans that for the majority of my life I struggled to stay in or strived to get back into. I threw them away because they are TOO BIG. Saying that aloud makes it even more real even after trying them on and having them fall off. It truly was a surreal experience. Note: I kept one pair just for those days I don’t recognize how far I’ve come.
In addition to the great jean giveaway, I had a FABULOUS morning with the toddler. We danced out to the fun punk sounds of the 184.108.40.206’s, made omelets and shared a can of tropical fruit for breakfast. I love this age! He now pulls up a chair and puts the cheese in his own omelet. It’s just too cute!
Then it was off to the gym for me. I did 20 minutes on the treadmill and the upper body circuit. I feel great and can’t believe I’ve become a gym rat. You have NO idea how strange it is for me to say that.
After the gym, I dropped off the jeans and hit the grocery store to stock up on healthy food for the week. I came home, finished the laundry, cooked dinner, prepared my lunch for tomorrow and went for an hour long after dinner stroll with the family. It was GREAT!
So why am I telling you all this. Well, I think motivation is contagious and I think we can start a movement, a movement to begin our weeks, ever week, with a sensational Sunday. If we take just a little time to recognize what we have, where we are, where we’ve been and where we want to be we can set the tone for the week. I plan to do this every Sunday and I hope you will join me.
So what do you say? Will you make every Sunday a Sensational Sunday?
