I'm doing my TTT tonight, because I've got a crazy busy day planned for tomorrow.

1. Tomorrow is the last day of that training... yahoo! I will not eat one single cookie tomorrow. I will not.

2. Shout out to my friend Miki. Got me out the door after a long a$$ day and to the gym.

3. I'd like to thank my legs and lungs for packing me over 3 miles tonight after I've neglected them for far too long.

4. I got a some serious blisters from said run.

5. I can't believe how good exercise makes me feel... why-oh-why do I let it slip from my routine?

6. I'm spending the weekend chasing cows, I'll think of you Vanessa!

7. I had an epiphany today... I start avoiding things like running or exercise in general because I think that I have to start over just because I got lax for a day or two for four weeks.  Let me explain. When I started "running" it was at 45 sec intervals and I felt like death, it was hard. It wasn't very much fun and it was very painful reminding me of all the days in 6th grade gym class. Any time I get off course I automatically think back to that pain. I think that I will have to start there again. The truth is I DON'T HAVE TO START OVER. Even if I take a step or two back, if I put on a pound, even 10 pounds, I am not the girl I was when I started this journey. I have knowledge and that knowledge is POWER. I am not perfect, but I am powerful.

8. Did you read this article that LBG posted? If you didn't, do... go... now... it changed the way I think about my band. Yep, 16 months post-op and I finally pinpointed what I've been trying to figure out.

9.  What songs are on our play list for work outs?

10. Now I'm just "groping in the dark" (this is seriously something the presenter said today and it was all I could do not to giggle like the 12 year old girl I still am on the inside) to get 10!


  1. 3 miles yesterday and 3 more today! We will do this. So let me just say that I started running at 30 sec intervals and I felt like death too LOL!! and I was in that middle school gym class with you (remember ms Jensen and we were all scared to death of her BAHAHA)! Those were the days.... I am pretty sure I would still rather ride a horse. Running is the closes thing I have came upon that gives me that serenity and peace that being on the back of a horse does... Maybe i will actually keep it up if I can keep thinking like that LOL!
    Love ya Sista!!!

  2. Loved, loved, loved that link that LBG posted! Totally made me re-think about getting a fill this week.

  3. Congrats on the run. I was afraid to start back up too because I didn't want to have to start at 30 second intervals again. Well I didn't. Felt great.
