My younger sister is back on SP w/ some prodding from me. She gave me her screen name and told me to kick her butt so I am going to do just that AND I want all my sparkly friends to help me! Her screen name is WANNABEAMILF, so please go write on her page send her goodies, etc.
Little family history, latent diabetes runs in our family, does not hit until usually in your 50's and it it only hits the women EVERY OTHER GENERATION. My sister and I are the generation to be hit. I remember as a youngster watching my grandmother give herself insulin shots not for me sorry!
My Dr's always said to watch your weight and you can probably not be effected by this. Our mom always said this too. Also, our mother actually got this in her 50's. First time in many generations that it did not skip. She was overweight, but I would not say obese.
My seestor was very proud of me for shedding the weight, it gave her hope that she could shed it too. I have been gently nudging her but not gently anymore, since she gave me permission to kick her butt after all!!!
Weekend... Was NICE... We actually took a break from dancing. I did nothing on Friday night, except have too much
Went to Curves Sat morning and there was a Zumba class going on. Okay fine, I'll do it again! I have a confession to make. I want the Zumba instructors butt! I believe she is around my age and yes, I have butt envy...something to work on.... I also ran Saturday afternoon redoing the C25K program and it really is helping not to be staring at the display!
Got lots of errands done!
Saturday night we went to dinner yum. Sunday, checked on the horse and got a lot of computer work done.
This morning, back to my 170 crunches and I cranked out another C25K work out! WHOOT Let's go sparkly buddies!!!

Okay.. so the shows 108 this morning and thought huh. Looked in the mirror and said 'I'm okay with that.' I like how I look, I don't 'feel' 108, which is usually a feeling for me. So maybe, just maybe... I'm finally building more muscle? Would be nice since I've been doing 150+ crunches for the past few weeks!
I need a day off..sheesh! There is so much going on as of late and it's time to take a step off the social train and chillax baby. We have been dancing 3 times a week for the last 3 weeks! While we love it, we really need to get some stuff done around the house and I have tons of errands to do. That and I want to especially now that I have a new game plan!
Going to hit Eddie Bauer and return a gift that just 'isn't me' and either get another one of those shirts the my BF said looked really good on me, or something else. Of course, since I'll be in site of Under Armor, I'll just HAVE to stop there. I am taking Cindy's advice and just buying another compression shirt because, hey, I'm worth it baby! I still have no idea where my other one went... Murphy's Law, will find it over weekend once I purchase another one!
There should be a law that negative temperatures should NOT be allowed. -5 this morning, that is just SO wrong.
ZUMBA! Loved it!!! There were some moves I could do real easy and others that made me feel like suck a dork!! But it was FAST! So in time, the movements will come. It's not that much, $25 for 13 work outs. If you have the opportunity, try it! Definitely something different, and I have been in a zone where I need something different!
I need to really go thru my closet. I keep pulling out sweaters to wear only to find they don't fit. Clean out, give away, declutter, that sorta thing.
Hmm what else can I muse about?
Oooh... I really want to do a few 5K's this year. I promised my BF though that I would not be competitive. I wonder if he'll think running 5K's as competitive or if just marathon training is competitive. hmmm
Well all my sparkly friends.. have a WUNDERBAR WEEKEND!! Stay warm and pain free!! I'll be in the garage with the coverette driver that never passes me ... as it's gonna be cold!

Do NOT add whey powder to your oatmeal. It does not taste good. In fact, it's kinda pasty! And I only did 1/2 a scoop!!! I was good and ate it all.. fast before I changed my mind!
I was wanting to increase my protein in the AM and figured this might do the trick. Um... nope!!!
Weekend was busy with running and dancing. woo hoo. Monday, I planned all these errands to do and the snow came down, hard. BF went out and called me and told me to stay home! LOL So I at least got a run in and did a bunch of book work yesterday. I really hate when your plans for the day get waylaid.
HOPEFULLY this week with charge right along though!!! Started with 50 bicycle crunches, 110 crunches and 10 Lying 45-Degree Abduction, I pulse them. I thought they were reverse crunches at first, but they are not, and they are much harder than reverse crunches!
Will be going to Curves later tonight!

Last night was my guy's birthday. I bought him a card and really thought about what I wrote in it. I got a great big long hug and kiss for it. He so rocks my world, I love to rock his too.
This morning I did 170 crunches!!!
Got my paycheck... ooh, it's smaller.
good that I got a paycheck, I'm employed
smaller because health insurance cost more, but that means I have insurance
smaller because I doubled my 401K withholding, thankful I am able to do this.
Found out that we have Monday off!! How is that? A day off when you were not expecting it?
Tomorrow will be doing strength training. Then planning a 2 mile run on the hills, oh the hills are alive with the trust me, you don't want me to sing! Then we are dancing (again) Saturday night.
Sunday, I want to run some more. I have been behind w/ all this dancing we are doing! I cannot run the morning we go dancing if it's a week day because I'll be way to tired to finish the night off and will make mistakes and don't want to do that. I cannot wake up early the next day because we get to bed do late!! So hoping to catch up Sunday.
Probably will be working with stacking wood, lots of wood Sunday too. Monday.. hmmm all sorts of stuff to do ... maybe I'll finally get around to trying out a new DVD!!
Hope everyone has a weekend!!
