Okay....what a busy, crazy day, jumped out of bed, got my treadmill in did an hour, then ran for the shower, grabbed the list, off to the grocery store, nearly froze solid getting the groceries into the car, home get them out and put away, clean, clean tidy, tidy, to be ready for 6 pm when Tristans friends arrived for His 13th birthday party/slumber party. Yes I know what your thinking...I'm thinking I'm crazy too!!!! (See picture for proof...lol)
I took a cake display platter and made this intricate design out of candy (10 different kinds) it was overflowing with candy and in 5 minutes there wasn't a piece left. Which is good no temptation for me there...but we still have to get thru, cake, ice cream, chips, dip, nachos and cheese, Lord Help Me be strong.
These boys eat soooo much, sooooo fast, pray for me...they may just eat me, if we run out of junk food. lol
hope your all having a great night.
Today I discovered weight watcher whole wheat bagels just 2 points whoo hooo they are good too.

Doin my hap hap happy dance down 2 more thats 8 pounds lost since Jan. 1. that never happens for me...I'm always a month into it before I see a loss...so I'm just ecstatic. However, I think the real story here is how awesome and amazing I'm feeling physically. I have more energy, I feel more alert, there's less of the fogginess in my brain that I was starting to think was me just getting old and senile or something.
Plus...I took an inch of that awful heart attack fat off of my waist. So I'm a happy girl today.
Plus when I think of the amazing friends I have made here, the awesome support I have received, I just feel totally blessed.
hope you all have a great day...We're doin this! whooo hooo.

I was just marvelling to my husband today about how well I feel. I'm energized, and feel so alive. Its the healthy eating and exercise I know it. I never realized just how bad I had been feeling until now when I feel so good. Why in the world would I ever stop doing this. Its great!
Today I did the 2nd workout in the couch-5k program found it easy. Then I continued after it was over to walk/run. I was so excited when I found myself able to run in 5 minute intervals at 5 mph.
I have to be careful though to do it the way the coach wants you to do it in the program. ON my left shin I have a pain, and it scares me to think I might get shin splints. i have to be realistic here, I am not in shape yet, and my bones are probably not as strong as they should be. So as much as I just want to push myself and get flat out running , I'm going to have to do it over time and the way he says or I'll just be injured and not able to run at all. That would be awful, so from here on out I'm going to do what the program says and only what the program says.
Although on the alternating days when you do it, I will spend an extra half hour on the treadmill, but just walking no running.
I still can't get over how great I feel. I'm also finding when stress starts to get me, if I jump on the treadmill I have to focus on the workout and when I'm done I'm just not stressed, and how many times do we take a problem and run it over and over and over again in our heads only frustrating ourselves more and more. When your working out you can't think, its just breathe and get it done. So its a break right there, and after you feel so much better.
Did I say....I love this program...cuz...I love this program!!!! LOl
Hope you all are having a super day.
Lori if your reading I'm thinking of you sweety.

Blairsville Bunch...love you all...We can and will git it done!
