I stumbled out of bed this morning, went potty and got on the scale. It's a really loud talking scale and it shouted at me that I was 186. That kind of woke me up. I didn't even have to play the scale game to get it at the number! I stepped off and thought, "no, too aggravating to go down, put it on SP, then it goes up 4 pounds the very next day." and stepped back on the scale: 186.1
Really? I can take that number? I haven't seen that number since .... gosh way before I stopped smoking :o) Usually I can go up pretty fast, but down takes weeks, months....maybe even years!!!
I guess that number makes all the shin pains of running totally worth it! I want to run again today, only it's rest day.
BUT!! Slim in 6 is here! Let's check it out!!
I am a soooo excited today. I'm going to decorate, I'm doing Slim in 6, I'm going to run tomorrow and I'm going to see if we can get to 185 by ... next week.
and not up.

Ok, I slacked. No excuses allowed. Slap my jiggles and move on forward.
Today I read all the motivating blogs and thought "I really need to do this...I WILL do this!" I'm no quitter. Nuh uh, no way!
So, I get up to do this....I leave the comfort of SP and my computer buddies to stretch and out of the depths of my mind comes....
"but" -----------and said with an excessive amount of whining
"the shins, Oh! the agony of the shins!"
No problem. I'm a fixer. I fix. I research, I will not lie down!!
First....the medicine cabinet. Strongest thing? Exedrin **pouts, but will have to do** The bottle reads not to exceed 8 per day? No prob...I'll take seven of these bad boys.....check.
My bottle of water.......check
MP3 player jacked from the kid.........check
Rober Ullrey's Week 3 podcast.........yup, check
and, for the shins.....
DUCK TAPE!! with Peas n Carrots please....

And that is what my tracking order says. "shipping date, December 1st". I've got my tele set up, my mat. All I need is my Slim in 6. I'm pretty excited.
This with C25 should get me started. Should, I hope I hope I hope!! I'm hoping by February, I will be ready for the next step and soon I will be the fitness guru champion with a body enough for Playboy!!
Is that the door? Could the UPS man be here?
Maybe I'll stretch, put on my running shoes and go C25 a UPS truck.

It wasn't that bad. I did my running with my birthday girl. She's 11 today and if I could ever keep up with her it would be a miracle. I guess I better get working on my own miracle then. Did Week 2, Day 1 and the calves didn't hurt at all, shins ached, and the knee kept trying to "pop"...but I did it. And I really want to do it again, actually. Why do we rest when runners run daily again? I know there was a reason, I just forget. I do that sometimes.
What was I saying?
I wonder if it's possible to be so addicted to Spark People. I was concerned I was on here more than exercising and that it would never do. But, it just simply means I take a lot more motivating then others. Without reading Yoovie's and others blogs, I wouldn't have ever had the gumption to jiggle my arse in public. This exercising would be unnecessary if i could just move my arse up to my breast. I would just call it good.
I bought my Slim in 6 last night. I should have been sleeping, but I actually record infomercials now. How bad is that? I Tivo'd Slim in 6, then bought it. LOL Can't wait to get it.
I'm really trying not to give up mentally. I feel I have. It's frustrating tho to lose 2lbs and gain 5 in a day by day scenario. I'm too stubborn to give up physically. I will do this. I will lose the weight and be "cute" or maybe "hot" someday. Or I am going to be the healthiest jiggler on the running tracks.
I know! I will make a motivation collage. Do you think my hubby would find it wierd if I take a bunch of pics of hot girls in lingerie as my motivation and stick it on our bedroom wall or fridge? Maybe not the fridge...that might look awkward next to the kid's drawings and report cards.
I think I will go work on that now...I'll make it a family project :o)

I can't believe it.
First, I asked my littlest for her MP3 player again and she asked "can I run with you?" I told her, "yes, but if you get tired Mommy still has to do this. You just walk right back home." We live in a development and I keep my beginning runs simple. So, I wasn't worried. We begin the brisk walk. I keep one of my hearing aids in and the earplug in the other awaiting my "jog/walk" instructions. Trin keeps asking "when do we run?" and I tell her "5 minutes." when sure enough the voice comes on to begin my 60 sec of jogging. I jog and she says "Mom, I walk faster than that!"
Oh, to be 11 again and be able to there Ms. Soccer Queen! LOL When done doing 60 seconds and shins aching we slow down to a brisk walk...."what?! But I still want to run!!"
Good gravy! And here I thought I would have to send her home because she would be too tired. I explain to her the program and how at my weight it was a bit slower. She walks a bit, then "okay mom...let's go! You can do it! Move it Move It MOVE!!"
Yep, my own personal 11 year old trainer. She could hear everytime my podcast said to run and she was going to get me trained to catch up with her.
We run again in two days and apparently I am not allowed the MP3 player without her running with me.
I wonder if this constitutes a reward system or do I ground her? I'll contiplate this as ice rests on my shins and she literally runs around the house singing: "Mommy's new trainer, mommy's new trainer!"
