Nine and a Half Weeks..

Do you guys remember that movie?? I was 12 years old when that movie came out in 1986 and I know I should NOT have watched that steamy movie, but I did. It was on one of those channels (superchannel, I think it was)....and I watched it... muted! This movie was an erotic story about a woman, the assistant of an art gallery, who gets involved in an impersonal affair with a man. She barely knows about his life, only about the sex games they play, so the relationship begins to get complicated. The scenes were quite graphic (especially the kitchen/ice/food/sex scene). It starred Kim Bassinger and Mickey Rourke.

Well boy did I ever get an eyeful and since that then, anytime I hear or see the words "Nine 1/2 Weeks", it makes me just a wee bit uncomfortable - just a little!! :) So why am I telling you this? Well, I found it ironic that as I was just looking at the calendar today, I realized that I only have "nine 1/2 weeks" left to the "end" of my journey. Nine 1/2 weeks!! I feel like this past 9 months just flew by!!

This time, I don't feel uncomfortable - just ready!! Ready to finish strong!! 9 more weigh-ins until my one year anniversary. I still have lots of time to do some serious damage where this journey is concerned, so I want to ensure that I maintain my focus, momentum and motivation.

Food and exercise were on point today!! Kickboxing class at lunch was tough and good!! I only drank about litres of water today so I need to do better tomorrow.

My goals for the next nine and a half weeks:

- stay focused /eyes on the prize
- eat clean - very clean
- rock out the workouts
- drink enough water
- Enjoy every moment

until next time...

That should have been a coming of age moment all on its own lady ;0P.
The first steamy thing I ever watched was the love scene in terminator. That's when I knew if I was going to marry anybody, I was going to marry reece... A soldier, and I did. I roll like that. Hey man, 9 1/2 weeks to your one year anniversary. Awesome Job. When you get there, you can look back on this year as one heck of an accomplishment. Good job and Keep strong.

LOL! I haven't watched 9 1/2 wks, but I'm the same age as you and I was certainly not allowed to watch it back then. Now I have to rent it : )

Good luck rocking your last 9 1/2!!! I'm cheering you on!

Funny story Joania! I have never seen 9 1/2 weeks and am totally not interested. Movies like that make me uncomfortable.

I am more of a Disney fan!

Great goals and I know you will get your prize. You rock!
