What a day!

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Took my little boys to the Henry Ford Museum today, since we got a membership as our family gift for Christmas. It was great fun(thought a little busier than I expected) and a little exercise too. That place is HUGE! Then, I started taking down the Christmas decorations, and spent 45 minutes hooping. Oh yeah, got our run in tonight too. that makes...I think 34 days in a row...and only 4 more to go before we can take a day off!

As of this morning, my weight loss is 32.5 lbs. I can't believe I actually LOST weight over Christmas :)

Another day, another run :)

Ran 2 miles today, and had one regular client. Other than that, it's been a wonderfully lazy day, catching up on things around the house, playing with my kids and watching it snow.


Wow...over a week!

Since I've blogged, that is! It's been an eventful week, full of family, holidays, and a little bit of stomach flu. Fortunately, the last was shortlived, and didn't interfere too much with the holiday festivities..LOL. Had a great Christmas with all our kids, had way too much yummy food, and am both sad and relieved Christmas is over for another year!

Oh..and I stuck to our running challenge even with the stomach flu! I've run at least a mile a day since Thanksgiving and now we're close to the finish line. Six more days and this challenge is history :)

A nice day

Sunday, December 18, 2011

Today included a 5 mile run with the partner(day 25!) and a lot of doing nothing of consequence...then visiting a living nativity at a church near here. That was SO nice! Altogether a nice, relaxing Sunday....and the best part? My daughter and granddaughter are here until Christmas!!! YAY! :)

Why is this okay?

Saturday, December 17, 2011

My children were watching a show on Nickelodeon, or Disney earlier...and it had a situation where one of the main characters, a nice looking young man, was being pursued by a girl, about the same age, who wasn't the ideal cute little teenage girl. She was heavy, and wore glasses, and was clumsy and goofy. Of course, this was played for absolute comic effect, because, of course, she couldn't be taken seriously. I kept shaking my head and saying "Why is this supposed to be okay? Why is this supposedly funny?" Because heavy girls aren't allowed to be attracted to cute guys? Because fat girls are OBVIOUSLY funny and it's okay to ridicule them? I hate that this message is still considered okay. I feel sorry for overweight teenage girls, and in some ways, I feel sorry for overweight teenage me. It was 30some years ago, and I still remember what it feels like. I really wish this weren't considered okay anymore.

    Overweight people will never be considered "real" people by our society. We are just fat and nobody looks at our heart and mind.
