I can not believe I have not blogged in forever. So much has happend since transitioning the kids to be homeschooled, I ran my first 10k in July and had my 1 year anniversary race in August. My first race was in August of 08 and I signed up for the 1 mile, I was such a I went back a year later and did the 5k at that same race.

I have been through highs and lows doing 3-6 miles runs few times a week to doing nothing. I suffered injuries do to my noobness and hit plateau… Continue

Week 21: 7/25/09 - 7/31/09.. one of those weeks that remotivate you :)

Straight to stats, I am up a 1/2 lb. With TOMs arrival this week and a big loss last week I expected the result I got. I actually thought it would be between 1-2 lbs, so I was still pleasently surprised.

This week was full of wonderfull surprises. Discovering I have gone down so much that I am no longer a buying slave to Lane Bryant. The freedom I felt walking out of that door had me soaring :) I went to walmart yesterday tried a few things on and I am officially going to report size… Continue

Yesterday was the first of many days to come to shop for the new school year. We ended up at nordstrom rack looking for killer deals on running shoes for the boys. Anywho, Lane Bryant is also in the parking lot. well, for the last 20 weeks I have barely been shopping on this weight loss journey, wearing things untill it is just not possible and just not knowing how long something will fit dilemma. Well I have only purchased running/workout clothing back in early June, so havent tried on any… Continue

On my way to marking off an important life time goal :)

To be an example that inspires my family :)

I am not sure when to tell how you can cross a goal like this off, I have my entire life to be an example and fruits of this will continue to come long after I am gone. I wanted to share fruit I have already witnessed as my obedience to God takes root.

The first fruit revealed it self at the lied childrens museum back in May. They have centers set up just like smiths, auto shop, the airport and the kids can dress up and pretend… Continue

Week 20: 7/18/09 - 7/24/09, Hope & Spirit Renewed, 10% Loss goal achieved!

Wow week 20 is complete! after week 19 being a gutter week, my worst low so far.. it was hard to even look at any good outcomes coming out of week 20. I guess when you are so use to failing or giving up in the past it is naturally where your mind goes as if it is your truth for the rest of your life. Many people echo how it is so much easier to go negative then stay positive when it is tough.

A new profound understanding of a word that can be used so lightly and simply came out of… Continue

Thanks for commenting. I really like Weight Loss Yoga. It is different from 30DS, but some days I think I prefer Bob's more gentle approach. I also have to modify some things because I just can't hold the poses for that long. The other night I got a great workout from it. My abs were sore for several hours afterward.

Thank you so much for the welcome, it was much appreciated! I added a bit more about myself on my profile if you would like to take a look.

Thanks for the comment. How are you liking Weight Loss Yoga? I really enjoy it. I think I like doing that more at night. It really helps to relax me.

200 was my first "magic" number. I haven't been below 200 in 5 years which was the first time I did Weight Watchers after having my son. My next number that scares me is around 175. I "think" (since I can't remember exactly) I was around 176 when I hit a plateau and quit WW the first time. I'm not 100% positive what my ultimate weight goal is. I figure I'll see how I feel at 140. I haven't seen that number in over 12 years since I first met my husband and was in college. I'm thinking more in the 130-135 range though since that gives me a bit of wiggle room.
