August 14th, 2014
Well I had many plans this month to do many things, and my health as well as the kids got in the way. But I kept going, just in different ways. 21 Day Fix I wasn't allowed to continue, I have not been able to run because it jars to much, so when I am feeling well enough I do run, otherwise no. I'm still working out I guess, but not with traditional stuff, lots of mowing the lawn with a push mower, lots of painting, and fixing the other house, plenty of cleaning, with some traditional work outs in the middle. My current medications have not allowed me to do much, nor eat much, and some days I just have a hard time getting out of bed. But I muster up enough energy to remember I am not stopping no matter what happens, I may get slower with this, but I am still going to keep going. Our vow renewal is in a couple of days, and we have massive amounts of things to do, plus I need to keep my pain in check, so ought to be loads of fun. I can't wait for our week alone and away next week, I can't believe it took us 10 years to even get that week we never got in the first place but we are getting it. Life may try to knock me down, and shove me down, and more but I want to and continue to plan on standing back up and truck along some how some way.

August Goals:
1. Vow Renewal - take week off for 10 year late honeymoon
2. Finish 21 Day Fix
3. Eat right, drink plenty of water, stress less, make "me" time
4. Run M/W/F
5. Continue Yoga as often as possible
6. Any Cardio every day & add in stationary bike
7. Strength Training, resume normal after finish 21 day fix
8. Try to get in physical activity while away on honeymoon and to eat well
9. Don't let my pain run my days, I can do anything

Struggling, but still determined. Not going to stop now. I also added a new workout program for the next 3 weeks and hoping it goes well. So far I love it. Hoping it gives me lots of progress, but will probably add something with it. And keep up my strength training, and my running as well. Less than 1 month until my vow renewal, so excited and so nervous.

It has been almost 22 months since I started my journey, and I am proud to say I have not given up. I have gotten frustrated, down right upset at times, but not given up. That I refuse and have refused to do. I am down 57 pounds from the start, and have 33 pounds to go until I reach my original goal I set back then. Despite many obstacles I have faced recently, it hasn't changed my determination. We all face obstacles in some way every day of our lives, we just have to know how to get around them or go through them. WE CAN DO IT!!!

June 15th, 2014 Not Get Upset if I Can't Do What My Plans Are:
Strength Train ----- Sun/Tues/Thurs/Sat 15 minutes or more 2x a day
Restart Run Training --- Mon/Wed/Fri 10 minutes minimum 2x a day
Cardio of any kind ------- Everyday 20 minutes minimum
Begin Yoga ------- Everyday no minimum

Current Status:
RUNNING-TURTLE well, trying to not dwell on all of what's going on around here. Not something easy to do. One good thing this morning, weighing in for Saturday's Challenge, and I am now down a total of 70 pounds.

You are a doll, and thanks for the support! I hope you go to a real concert someday, they are surely a blast!!

As for your last few pounds, they are surely a drop in the bucket after what you have accomplished! BUT I DO THE SAME THING! 30 pounds is quite a bit, it's not 5 pounds and I know that, but when I've lost 90 pounds I have to remind myself it's not that far. The majority of it is behind us, now we have to just keep pushing for the last "few" pounds. Thanks for being so supportive! I am not big on time restricting goals, because if I don't meet them I feel like an epic failure, but maybe we can check in with each other from time to time and we could share how many "pounds left" we have to our goals. Hopefully we can watch that number shrink until we can finally say we have arrived! emoticon
