I don't think so....I have 15 minutes left in my workout this morning and a knock at the door comes so I look out the window....It is Grandma Gardner (Great to Sammie) and so I said come on in and make your self at home but I have to finish my workout I am almost done. Ha ha.....probably a state she never wanted to see me in....I hope that didn't scare her off and that she will come back anytime.

She sat with Sammie and played on the computer while I finished. Thanks Gram!!! We love you

Even though the scale shows little from shoulders to knees I have lost 11 inches since we started. YEAH MUSCLES!!


Well we went Motorcycle shopping on Sat and so I didn't get a chance to fit a workout in. So today I am doing double duty. Here we go. I have one 40 min down and am going to try and do another 40, but if not I will do 20 and another 20 sometime this week. But I am going to shoot to get it all taken care of today.

Hope you girls are still on track too. I am sure feeling better although the change on the scale is still slow moving.

I am so excited....first I haven't missed a day even with all the pain my tooth has been given me and now the weight is slowly and I mean really slowly but .2 loss a day is something. Also, I got my tooth fixed so no more pain and so hopefully no more emotional eating. I have always turned to food in every emotion and am trying to learn to control it or find better foods to eat in the time of need.

I was so excited when I came home from the early morning dentist appointment today and there was no pain...Hallelujah to God for inventing the root canal!!!! Has saved me many times. Now I can enjoy Phantom and there won't be any pain on the plane in a couple of weeks.

Oh my new favorite snack is PB and an apple or celery. Love the PB and out here in OK they have a white chocolate and chocolate PB so delicious!!! Sometimes I just eat that as a snack it helps the sweet craving.

Still on Track

I am not going to be the one to miss a workout. Even though my legs shake from the beginning of the workout. I feel great...even though the tooth pain is worse after working out. Hopefully that will be fixed soon. It is so worth it and I feel better. I am not down much in weight but someone asked how much I had lost on Sunday after only one strong week of workout. I guess toning and inches show faster than weight for me.

Feeling it

Man I feel it everywhere but mostly in my Gut and Thighs. Yahoo!!!! I guess that is what happens when you work out good. But it is good to feel results. I haven't felt this good in a long time.

One more down

This is a big thanks to Sammie for being so cooperative so I can get my workouts in. Also, a big thanks to A2 (supposed to be A squared for my two competitors) who motivated me in my competition and asked me to commit to working out!! A be thank you to Grant for getting me this workout that I love doing! So THANKS!!!! to all.

My Great Grandfather used to say Women don't sweat they perspire...However, sorry Grandpa but I am sweating like a Pig. I have never worked out and enjoyed it so much and at the end I am dripping with sweat. Even when I was running I don't think I sweat this much.

Today was weights and I was just as dripping as I was yesterday when I did cardio. I don't know if it has something to do with the humidity here or what. But I like it cause it makes it feel even more like I am toning and making adjustments to my body and muscles.

So Two days down and motivated more than ever!

You're On!!

Well I have two who are participating in the competition! We are exercising 6 days a week 40+ minutes a day. Each of us own Turbo Jam so we are doing that, unless an alteration needs to take place. MWF I will be doing cardio and TTHS I will do Weights. This has definitely motivated me. I also spent last week really watching what I ate and have now got a good handle on that and am continuing to move forward with that this week. I will add a ticker for each week so I can keep track. I will also track weight and eating. More to come. You can still join in as we just started today. ANYONE?????

What in the world

So I decided I was going to do this (post below) Mon. Since then the news, Ellen, Oprah, Rachel Ray, are the ones I have seen clips on about loosing weight. If I hadn't already decided this I think I might have been depressed by it, but I was only motivated!!! But could there be any more hints or sings for me that I am supposed to kick it into gear?

So hear I go! Join me on the journey? I would love you too

Goal and Competition

I have decided that when I meet my family in NM in July that I will have lost 10+ lbs by that time. I have been struggling lately with exercise b/c I have had a cold and major teeth pain. However, even though those are still around no more excuses. I have committed to exercising 4-5 times a week. Chalene and I are going to become the best of friends!

So I would like to make this a competition so that I have someone I am competing against. So I am looking for volunteers!!! More than one????? Set your goal and in 6 weeks we will all report. I need to know who my competition is so email me or leave a comment. This will help me control the cravings too.
