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.

I posted this blog twice.
I'm not doing it again.
If it doesn't post....poooey.
This is what happens to my brain when I try to go a day without coffee. I am so EXHAUSTED!!!
I am supposed to run today, but I can't decide between redoing Week 3's 90sec/3 min intervals or the Week 4's 3min/5min intervals. It is now 3:14pm.
I began my new classes today and I'm supposed to read 4 chapters and comment on Money Matters.....I printed it. They are sitting on my printer.....
I am supposed to Start my Slim in 6....we won't even put that on our list yet...
I tried to finish my Christmas decorating. I have managed to move all the lights from the living room to the front entrance, vacuumed and gave up when i couldn't find the stapler.....
Maybe I will just restart my day. Go make a cup of coffee and start over. Wait!! I don't have creamer. I don't drink coffee without creamer which is why I told everyone not to buy me creamer.
I'm going back to bed.
and it's only 3:16pm.

That's what I am telling myself today.
I WAS doing great! I woke up at 8 and ran. Stepped outside and bbrrrrrr was it cold! I did my brisk walk as instructed by Robert Ullrey and thought "I'm ready for my first 1.5 minutes!" The motivation was there.....buuuut.....
You ever have one of those dreams where you are running and the more you run the heavier your legs get? No matter how hard you try your body literally weighs you down?
AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS THAT DREAM?? **pouts**
Well, anyway my run today was like that dream. I was actually VERY surprised but my legs felt soo heavy and I was out of breath! Was it the cold air? Was it my body stating "ENOUGH CHICA!! BACK OFF!!"? By the time the 3 minutes hit, I was sputtering and tripping all over the place. I don't understand....two days ago I did it like it was a regular. Wasn't easy, but wasn't this dang difficult either. I am still debating on repeating week 3 and seriously leaning towards doing that.
After I got home and showered, still wondering in disbelief and soaking as much hot water on my achey shins as allowed, the girls took me to Tom's Christmas work party. I, again, did FABULOUS!! Carrots, no dip, brocolli, no dip..no meats and water. I didn't even cringe, I just did.
We came home and docorated our own house. Actually, I think we imploded it as there are more lights, tinsel, and broken leftovers on my floor than hit the tree. My Harry Potter train set broke, the Ski Slope keeps falling off the tree and is now sitting in the corner of our living room. As my girls poetly described it at dinner: "Dad, it looks like Santa tried to throw up in our living room."
That's my project for tomorrow.
AND, as Tom made the work pumpkin rolls and imploded the kitchen AND as we haven't been out to dinner since.....gosh, when did we last have money? We still don't, but went out anyway :o)
It was Red Robin.
I forgot my glasses!
Screw it, it's treat day.
I'm not even going to talk to my scale in the morning.
BUT!! After....or maybe before cleaning the house, I start my new classes and my Slim in 6.
I love Mondays....start of a brand new everything :o)

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!!
