Today marks Week 2, Day 1 of Slim in 6. I put my little gold star on the wall.
I am still kind of stunned. I THOUGHT it would really hurt today as:
1) it's a Monday after a rest day
2) my bum still tender
3) it's Ramp It UP!!
But no, I went through the hour pretty okay. I didn't topple over, my balance is improving and AND....I actualy am up to 18 push ups. On THESE measly things I call arms.
I took it easy on the leg "presses" that entail lifting your legs in the air as I am still rather tender in that area. But, again...before I knew it, the hour was up. Just like that! I actually looked around and thought "maybe I should do the Wii, the abs.."
something...I want more!
I think I'm starting to become really obsessed with this. It's getting to where I wonder how far I can push.
But, until my family sees results, until I see the results I will jsut keep pushing play.

I did my Day 6 of Slim in 6 yesterday. I sweated it out and gave myself a pat on the back. Yeay for me it's rest day today!
Except, I bent over to pick something up today and "pop" a muscle in my bum pops out. It hurts sooo bad that I didn't know whether to laugh or cry, so I did both!
Anyone ever come across this? How am I supposed to do tomorrow? Oh Me Goodness. Honestly, the only thing I can think of is to keep working it out...I've never heard of stretches for bums though. Then again, I can't walk around holding mine all day either.

I'm on Day 4 of the Slim in 6 program and I love the thought that I am doing this with a few other Sparkers. We have all been doing the "Start it Up" program and I thought, "I'm going to try the Ramp it Up." Ramp it Up is a longer version of Start it Up (from 30 min to 50) and contains resistance.
I'm pretty proud of myself. This girl (that' s me) the one who can't do a push up can do 10-12!! Okay so my arms feel like wet noodles right about now, but I feel GOOD!! I feel like I could run a marathon, or jump to the moon or something.
I still fall over at the lunges. I topple like cow tipping. But, Debbie (coach thingie) says it will get better...
Kids are home...time to shower, homework, dinner, and then?? hmmm clean? LOL Oh, I can't WAIT to do it again tomorrow! How crazy is THAT?!?

Normally I laugh at the challenge of 8 hours a night. I can do three nights worth in one!!
But, not tonight.
I need to sleep as tomorrow I resume my C25, begin Slim in 6, and back to school for the kiddos and myself.
Tomorrow life resumes.
or wait, that would be today.
I "forgot" the 1st was on a Friday. I am a Monday gal so everything starts today for me...there are a lot of new Sparkers on here!
I'm tired and have to get up in two hours....
I'm going to go find something....some blueberries? water? I dunno..... I'm tired, hungry and rambling....
did I already say that? fudge....no, I meant that as a swear word, not as food. LOL
eh, there's my 3 points today :o)
and it's 2:36 am

I thought I was discombooberated.
I thought it was just me...
I was just preparing for what was to come.
She is the loudest voice in the tiniest body.
She is the first to warm my lap.
She loves motorboats on her neck.
She loves her sweaters.
She shivers even in the summer.
She was HIS baby girl.
She ran outside before I could holler.
She only wanted to go bye bye
He didn't see her
He shut the door of his pick up truck.
She's only 2 pounds.
She died in my arms on the way to the vet.....
She was beautiful.
