hopefully I can find the time tonight with getting ready for the 3-day, working, homework helping, and getting my daughter to and from tumbling.
So last night I ran a mile on a friend treadmill. Step one to running again. It was a slow mile, but hey when I first started I almost stopped at a half of a mile but I stuck it out. Yeah me!!!!
I did weigh-in this morning, but for the life of me don't remember it. Thankfully my scale saves it so I will look when I get home and update I think it was 184ish. In the right direction, but still mad at myself about how high it is.
For dinner last night we wanted nachos pretty bad, but I stuck to it and didn't eat out for them. We got some baked scoops (only 1 serving), 2% cheese (1 serving), refried beans, since I'm vegetarian (1/2 serving), lettuce, ff sour cream (1 serving), tomatoes, onions (which we forgot about til it was too late). The veggies I piled on and weighed out the other and didn't go back for more. I'm so proud that I had something I really wanted the healthy was. Yeah my healthy ways are coming back. I knew they were there. :o)
Last night I stayed up a little late though and remembered right before bed about my vitamin and not thinking about how long it had been since dinner took it. Arg, needless to say 10 saltines later I finally managed to keep it down. Vitamins on an empty stomach make me so sick. It will make me think more next time.
Today I will run another mile!!!!! I promise myself and challenge anyone reading this to walk or run atleast a mile today :o) I will also do push ups and sit-ups tonight 25 of each no matter how long it takes. I'll start low since it's been a while and do either girly or wall push-ups depending on how my shoulder feels. Gotta re-start somewhere.
Hope everyone had a great Tuesday and remember to track your food and drink your water !!!! Hugz Enjoy this wonderful veggie/fruit pic from my kitchen

I am making a new challenge for myself to help inspire myself and others more. I am going to start a video blog. I will get a good weigh-in tomorrow and try to set everything up. We'll see how it goes :o) I'm excited to see what it brings. Cheers to all, and don't forget to track. Hugz!!!!!

We had a blast on the train. Well on the way to LA we pretty much slept through it. Woke up about 5:45 then went to breakfast at 6 after watching out the window for a few. Then at breakfast we were able to continue to watch our journey to LA. I did really good with my food while we were gone, and even got hubby to go to 2 vegetarian resterants while we were there.
The first day we went and checked into the hotel. Our train was supposed to get in at 9:30 am and was early so we hopped in the rental car and decided to find the hotel and see how early we could check in (we had requested early check-in) We were in our room a few min. before 10am , I was impressed. After that we went and found the veggie place I think it was called Pure Luck, after that we went down to the farmers market walked around there for a couple hours, got some peaches, and went to our favorite place... Coffee Bean :o) We don't have those in Tucson. After that we went to Whole Foods across the street, man am I jealous of the size of that store, it was amazing!!!! Then we went to find The Viggie Grill for dinner, yum yum!!! After that we picked up my mom and her boyfriend at LAX.
Sat. morning we didn't all get hot water for our showers :o( but they gave us the breakfast buffet to make up for it. Boy was that nice. I was able to get an egg white omlette with veggies, and I got some fruit, and a light and fit yogurt. Then we were off to out drive to Hearst Castle. We had fun there and got back to our hotel about midnight.
Sunday we decided to go find a crepe place for breakfast, after not being able to find two places we were excited to find the third then when we saw they were closed we went next door to Jinky's. After we got seated we realized that it was aparently a place that the stars frequented. We recognized one person, but I'm really not one for recognizing people. I was able to get a healthy breakfast tofu scramble then we were off to go walk around the farmers market again (where I got my Moose) before we went home. We had fun and were able to go back by Coffee Bean Befor we went home :o)
On the train ride home we played a couple games, read, and went to dinner. They even gave me something off the menu, because there veggie dish was cheese pasta. I got a baked potato, salad, with a bunch of steamed veggies :o) Before we knew it we were back to Tucson, what a great way to travel.
Now we are back home to work :( but our garden did well with the drip system we installed :o) I really hope we get some stuff to eat from it :o)
Gym update. I went Tuesday and did about 45 min of cardio and yesterday I did about 30 min of cardio whoo hooooo!!!!!! I also plan to go today. Last night we ended up going to Pei Wei, didn't make the best choice but I did only have half of it and saved the other half for lunch today I got the Pad Thai Tofu bowl :o)
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and week so far. Cheers to the Summer!!! I better get back to work, here are some pics from the trip

Yes I'm a scale-a-holic , even though I only officially weight in once a week a weight myself once or twice a week. It seems to keep me in check and I know my body can fluctuate 3-5 lbs from night to morning. It works for me. Once upon a time through my journey a wrote a story about being a scale-o-holic, I think it was at a point that I was stuck despite my honest efforts. I'll try to find it sometime and post it.
So anyways on to the point I was 169.6 whoo hooo, now I just need to maintain on our trip. I can!!!! It will be easier since I have decided to eat mostly fruits veggies and beans, no meats. It make healthy choices easier for me and I love the food. :o)
I have about 5-6 more hours of work before we go home to pack, the day is going by very slowly. Aftr work should go by fast getting kids dropping them off, packing, etc. Atleast I don't have to give my seedlings extra water now since mother nature decided to take care of that task for me. ha ha Our garden is doing good for a late start, we got some shade up this past week and hope to finish it Monday when we return, I will post more pics of it soon :o)
Here is a couple pics from the Breast Cancer 3 Day event that we participate in. Last year we both were a part of the crew in Phx and the year before we both walked. ***This year we are crewing Phx and hope to be able to start fund raising to be able to walk in Denver, if not we will crew there too
This first pic is me and our dear friend Karin
Here is a pic of dear hubby and me day one waiting for the walkers to start arriving so we could load their bags
This last one is a picture of us with all the gear and tent crew after we finished unloading and sorting the bags, so much fun and great people!!!

OK my weight in wasn't all bad, but it wasn't as good as I hoped. I was down .2 , hopefully next week I will be under 170 :o) While at home I have decided to start sticking to the diet that sparkpeople gives me very closely to see if that helps. I am very happy though that it did move in the correct direction this time.
I am so excited about our trip. We leave late tomorrow night, ahhhhh. I still haven't packed. Atleast we are leaving late so we have time to pack after work. :o) Tonight it's finishing up my sparkpeople stuff then get my food ready for tomorrow.
Heres a couple more pics from Hearst Castle last Summer
