Tomorrow is the Take Steps walk for Crohns-Colitis in Sacramento, CA. Last year, Kady was the honored hero. I remember walking around the state capitol and thinking "This must be like 3 or 4 miles!" It was all I could do to make it but it was progress because the year before, I sat it out. When I got home, I tracked it. It was barely over a mile! lol.... That was 2 months into my spark journey. This year? That is gonna be a cake walk! (did I say cake??? I certainly hope so!!).
Kady has raised nearly $4000.00 for the CCFA and when we walk tomorrow, in my heart, besides Kady,I am going to be carrying HISBLONDIE's boy, and I am going to be carring Cheryl (ATREATFORME) and I am going to be walking and praying for a cure for this terrible disease. I am also going to be thinking about my progress in this last year and how far I have come but more importantly, how far Kady has come.
KRAWRS asked me today how Kady is doing and she is doing great. Amazing, even. SHe has so much energy and just a fabulous zest for life. It looks like she will probably have to have an adjustment surgery this summer but we can deal with that.
One of the things I want to pass on is this: When you think something is the worst thing that can happen, sometimes it's not. Sometimes it is just something you have to go through to have the best life you can.
Tomorrow is going to be a great day and I am excited for my small part in finding a cure and raising awareness . I will post pictures! Have a great Saturday. I dare you.

3 steps forward, 2 steps back, one step sideways, up, down, start again.
NO, it isn't square dancing. It is this dance called "weight loss". As I bragged on Monday, (first mistake apparantly), I was down 3 pounds. Today (my normal weigh in day) I am up 2. (Note to self: Bragging is unattractive and will bite you in the A$$).
I have been eating within range, drinking all the water, watching the sodium, excercising on schedule, doing my boot camp workouts (went from 4 days a week last week to 7 days this week with 2 extra video's. They are short 6-15 minute videos).
Now my point in telling you this is not for me to whine (cause you know how I feel about THAT!) but just to let you know that sometimes it happens like that. There is nothing absolute in weight loss or we would have all had a handle on it a long time ago). This is today. It is not forever, it is not tomorrow, it will not change my plan, my program or my resolve.
I am not done. I am not even CLOSE to being done. I will just go on with my day, like I always do, and be excited when the scale moves down next week.
I will keep doing the dance, maybe learn some new moves, but I am not sitting it out, I am not discouraged even though I may not like this particular song.
Can we get some Creedence up in here?????
