Last week, all the classes were not in session for the holiday, so getting exercise in has been tough. I rely on those classes to kick me in the booty and get me going. Misery loves company! This week they are back in session, but it is year end so I worked through lunch yesterday. Today I'm determined to get myself to the gym. It is rainy out which will help. Nice and cool. I'll take it!

Last week, I decided to try running on the treadmill. I expected it to be a bad session as I haven't run since before I got pregnant with Jake (2.9 months ago!). I ran 20 minutes and wasn't tired. I got bored pretty quick and had to go to the bathroom which definitely didn't help. I felt pretty good. During the weekend though is when I started to feel the results of the run. That's ok though. At least I know I worked some muscles that haven't been worked in awhile.

Yesterday I backslid and had Wendy's for dinner. So went over my calories by 300 calories. If I had gone with a d. coke instead of a small frosty I would have stayed within range. DOH. Oh well. It was yummy! :)


New Shoes

Sunday, July 01, 2007

My goal for the month of June was to get down to 134. Since I definitely made that goal, today I get new cross trainer shoes. (Badly needed!) I'm so excited.

My goal for the month of July is to get down to 132. Since I am currently at 132.8 (as of today), I only have .8 to go! Woo-hoo! My reward for that marker is to get a pedicure.

I really like the way I'm looking now. I can really tell a difference. I even have DH going again. He's back on the bike and talking about racing again. LOL.

New low!

Thursday, June 28, 2007

Got on the scale this morning and saw 132.4! Yippee. Now if I can make it through the weekend w/o blowing it I'll be set! It is funny every time I get to a new weight, I fluxuate until I get used to that new style of living. It is a learning process.

Discovered last night that I can't eat fried fish tenders. I felt sooooo sick after I ate them. Too greasy. I only had 6. Oh well. No loss. I have to be careful of fried foods as my system can't handle them very well. Especially since I had my gall bladder out. That made it worse. The sick feeling hits sooner than later!

Maxwell Falls

Monday, June 18, 2007

For Father's Day, dh, Jake, Molly and I hiked Maxwell Falls in Evergreen. It was beautiful but a little warm for me. I forgot to bring water for myself so definitely my own fault. I forgot how far it was from the lower trailhead to the falls. It was a little too long for Jake. He wanted out of the carrier and was not a happy camper on the way back to the car.

Decided to go grocery shopping yesterday. DH is not allowed to grocery shop for me anymore! Every time he goes he ends up getting all junk food and no healthy stuff. I planned out what we are going to eat this week and bought what we needed. Only got 1 bad thing-a glazed doughnut. (I allow myself a doughnut once a week.) While I was putting away the groceries, I discovered dh had also purchased 6 pizzas last week. I just rolled my eyes and continued to put stuff away. He knows I'm trying to reach my goal of 128 but he still buys that stuff. Irritating. He said after the hike he discovered just how out of shape he was. Maybe he'll get a clue and eat healthier too!


Added Pictures of White Ranch and Lion's Gulch

Just added pictures from Molly and I's past 2 hikes. Molly is fully recovered and looking a bit trimmer after that last hike! I think we will do a family hike on Sunday for Father's Day. We will be hiking a shorter hike in Evergreen at Maxwell Falls. It is an old favorite and a very pretty, shaded hike.

Dh and I celebrated our 10th anniversary tonight. We went to Fuddruckers. (Kid friendly hamburger joint.) Jake loved it. He had chocolate chip cookie all over his face by the time we were done!

On a sad note, my Dad's brother died today. He was the last surviving brother. I'm glad we got to see him at the end of March. He was so clear and recognized us all. He was very happy to see us and Jake. It was a wonderful visit.
