Ok, so its 2011. I haven't posted in a while but I've got a lot to share.
I'll try not to make this a novel..
Update on the car accident that happened over memorial day weekend (See last blog), The husband who was critical, passed a few months ago. While this is sad, the positive thing is his family is now together in God's home. (mom, kids and dad all passed). You can't get any better care than that.
Update on my boot camp instructor who had brain surgery in May 2010. She's back to teaching classes! YIPPEEE!!!. Her follow ups have all been awesome. We are so glad to have her back and she's in great spirits! God is soo good. We continue to pray for her as she still struggles with sleep and energy.
In her honor, a few of her friends have organized a 5k Run. It's HEAD FOR THE CURE. A not for profit organization that raises awareness on brain cancer and helps raise money for brain cancer research. See their website www.headforthecure.org .
The 5K run for Stevie Patrick will be on May 14th in Frisco, TX. All money goes to brain cancer research and M.D. Anderson to help those who need the best treatment and need a little extra help financially.
Sites for Stevie:
Registration is open! Hope to see you all there! :)
I'm doing ok. My eating habits have been a little sour over the last few months but I am getting bak on track slowly and you will see me at the Paddy Dash in Frisco in March, the Warrior Dash in Texas in April and the Head For the Cure run in May.. :)
Have an incredibly blessed week!

Fell off the wagon this weekend.
Had a drink, ate more than normal, not necessarily unhealthily..... and not that I'm against drinking but I had set a goal for myself not to drink until my 40th bday in October.
Life has dealt a bad hand these last few weeks.
Lost a co-worker to a tragic, tragic accident this memorial day weekend. Her kids were killed as well. Her husband is critical.
On a positive note! - my boot camp instructor is recovering well from brain surgery. She's been release from the surgeon and is now in the hands of the oncologist and is awaiting word on treatment plan for the remaining 1% of the tumor. She is now able to drive and work out a little bit (power walk, light weights, etc). Her surgeon says she's in the top 10% to make a full recovery on this cancer! YES!!! God is SOOOOO AWESOME! Thank you for your prayers.
Please continue to pray for her through her chemo and radiation that things will go smoothly.
Other than the above, I'm doing good, I'm back on track, and ready to start losing the few more pounds I need to hit goal.
I signed up for the June 12 Susan Komen North Texas Race for the Cure... 5K... :)
Have a great Hump Day!

So here I am, on my journey to my goal of 150lbs and I am currently over halfway to my goal from where I started. I am feeling good and looking much better and when I tell people that I still have 44 lbs to lose, I always hear the same thing.... "GASP"! They can't believe I still have that much to lose. They say "you'll be anorexic"!
Really now, that's what the powers that be who make the charts say I should be and that's the MIDWAY mark. I have a medium frame and I'm tall. I realize most of me at this point is probably muscle (I guess?). I'm 194 right now and I'm in a 14. at 150 I'll be in a 10?
I really want to be that weight (my high school weight) but at the same time, I don't want to look sickly and it kind of bothers me when I see the notes that are dubbed by health professionals that state if I weigh more I'm considered "overweight".. Hmmmm..
Odd it is..
