Welcome!

Update 7/29/13: Here we go again! That's all I'm gonna say. ;)

Update 8/1/09: Thanks to all who donated towards my 26.2 mile marathon to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I walked it in 6hrs 18 min. It was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life!

Wilson is back to a healthy weight now! He's lost 13 pounds. I can't wait to reach my goal now, too!

Just saw your post on my page, made it through the holidays, how about you? It was tough this year but I didn't eat as much as normal and even though I have a cold I am still exercising (just not as hard)

:)

I'm from Bay City!!

Thanks for the great tips for getting out and walking in the mornings!! I did really good with that all summer - and going to the Y to work out last winter. We went every morning and did really well! Unfortunately, my kids switched schools this year, and now I have to take them to school before work and it adds an extra hour to every morning. I think I could manage it a couple days a week, but I would really have to get up about 430am, and I'm not crazy enough to think that's sustainable for me.

We're big Black Friday shoppers (we start on Thursday morning, and usually shop until we pass out sometime on Saturday!!), so I added some warm clothes to my list of things to look for - leggings and some runner's gear for cold weather. Maybe I can force myself to get out after work on the days when Hubby isn't working afternoons - I'm not a big fan of walking alone in the dark.

I wish my dog would go for a walk with me!! Unfortunately, she's a bit of a bugger, and at 45 lbs of pure muscle, she just drags me all over the place - I'm afraid she will get away from me and get hit by a car, of pull me down and hurt me :(

Good luck on the Detroit Turkey Trot!! That sounds like a lot of fun!!

Yay!! Another Michigander!!! What city??

I gotta ask - what do you do to get exercise in the late fall/winter? I'm starting to really slack off because i dont want to go out by myself after dark, and it's already just TOO COLD!!

I miss the emoticon !!!
