Why My Co-Workers Rock!!

Saturday, March 23, 2013

My birthday was yesterday - my co-workers are having a pot luck dinner for me tonight - lots of good things!

Instead of getting me a cake, they cut up a bunch of fresh fruit and made a low cal/fat fruit dip. It is AMAZING - tho, I like to eat the fruit plain.

They were able to make everything for me to fit well within my goals.

    What a great support system you have at work! Often we get the whole, "Well, one piece of cake won't kill you, you know." Instead, they tailored the celebration to meet your needs.

Happy belated birthday!

    How blessed you are to have coworkers surrounding you who are more like family/friends. Happy Birthday, Pat emoticon

An American Walks into a Bar...

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Lots of good things going on right now. I am in a very happy place.

I had such an awesome workout tonight. I ran 3/4 of a mile. I have never been able to do that. Even as a child, I walked the mile run in school gym class. In high school, I just flat out refused to do it. I walked 1/4 mile, then ran 1/4 mile and figured I would keep going until I couldn't... I made it to 3/4. I was so very pleased with myself.

All in all... awesome day!!

    You see! You are the little (I mean small) girl that could. The girl who does stuff. You might end up a triathlete.

Miss Me? (Photos!)

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

As a reward and a Happy Birthday to me... I went out and bought a pair of MISS ME jeans - yes, they cost me $103.00, but now I am groovy like all of the hip kids!

I REALLY hope you can see the size tag... W28 L31 (whooo hooo!!!)

Here is a pic from last saturday before the Silent Auction for the library

I hope everyone is having an awesome day!

    Love those jeans!
I thought Miss Me was a question. Shows you what I know about the world of being cool. (Hope it is an Africa thing and not my age)
Have a great week.

    LOVE the Jeans!!!!


I was feeling your joy!

OBTW: I went to Kohls the other day to get a pair of capri's and/or shorts. When I saw the cute Jrs and Misses clothes, I thought of you and then I thought 'Why Not????!' (Normally I head straight to Women's World section) I grabbed some stuff I would love to see on my dd's and tried them on. Bought capri's, shorts and 3 tops. Hmmm maybe I'll also take a page from your blog and post pics in mine


THANKS for sharing!

PC Fit - Gym Memberships - Mud on the Mountain - and stuff

Thursday, March 14, 2013

I am not quite sure why, but I really haven't been in the mood to blog lately.

I am still eating well, and have been able to maintain my weight these last few weeks, which is exactly what I am after. I need to stop sneaking BLTs (Bites, licks and tastes) though. I find that is a problem, but I should be able to get that under control.

As far as the gym goes... I went on Monday and met with my trainer. I was messing around with my boyfriend (no... not in THAT way) and lost track of time today, and didn't make it before work. My new dress came in the mail, and we were taking pictures of me in it.

It was a little snug. I actually had a hard time getting it on because the zipper kept sticking. My boyfriend made a point that it will still be a few months until I can wear it, so, if I keep up the way I am, I will have lost another inch or 2. Actually, once I had it on, it fit ok. It is supposed to fit tight uptop. It was just the darn zipper!!

I really want to go to the gym after work. I missed my Strength training today, and I need to get that in. I am going to see how the rest of the night goes. I may just go before work tomorrow -- as long as I get it in, I will be alright.

I am still up in the air about the gym membership. I don't know what I want to do. I contacted The Summit, and they are now offering Cross Fit, but it is an additional fee to the membership. It would cost me $70 a month for Cross Fit and the gym membership, however that is only 1 class a week. My current gym (Procare) the P.C Fit membership is $100 a month, but that includes up to 15 sessions of P.C Fit a week (is that EVEN possible?) unlimited access to a personal trainer, unlimited spinning and yoga... not bad? I think I am leaning more for just keeping my Procare membership and adding P.C Fit to it

Hopefully, by the time Olivia leaves me in July I will be ready. I think I will be...

I am not sure if I have mentioned it or not, but... I have decided that I am going to go for it and do Mud on the Mountain. I know I can do it. I still have about 2 months to train, and I know I can be ready. People that are way less fit than I am do it, so why not? It is all about the right attitude. I have been training for months! And no, I won't be able to run it, but neither will a lot of other people. I have all day and I don't care if I am the last person there - I WILL do it! Besides, isn't attitude like the most important part?

I really wish my boyfriend would be a little more excited about this event. I know he doesn't really want to go, but he will. I wouldn't make him go except I don't think I will be able to drive myself home after the event. I am pretty sure I will be sore and tired and next to dead. I just really want him to show some enthusiasm about me doing this event. I want him to say "Yes, honey! I am so proud of you! I will be right there cheering you on!" -- did you ever see the commercial where the husband is following his wife at a race and has big signs that read Go JENNY GO!! and whatnot? I want that to be MY boyfriend. I want him there encouraging me and telling me that I can do it and cheering me on!!

Ohhh... I have decided to stop buying fruit flavored greek yogurt and make my own using fresh (or frozen) fruit and plain yogurt. It took a few times to get used to the taste, but now I find I like it a lot.

I think that is all for now

    Guys don't make good cheerleaders, but they do make good bike mechanics, paramedics and bodyguards. Your guy is in transport? Not a lot of cheer leaders in that line of business.
As long as you guys are a team in life stuff, it is fine.
BUT good for you for doing one of your goals!!!
You are one girl who does what she says, and I think it is awesome. emoticon

    Hopefully, your boyfriend has some good points that overshadow his lack of enthusiasm towards what's important to you. I could not imagine not being excited and at the finish line for my wife's races. It's important to our relationship that I show support. In later years, it becomes so very important. Good luck!!
