    Pretty much going to take this idea and run with it...I love the idea of totaling miles and squats and crunches, and such! Great idea! Do you use an excel sheet to keep track?

Training Walks...LBD...Goal Updates

Monday, July 22, 2013

I've been in training since mid May for my Susan G Komen, 3-Day, 60 Mile Breast Cancer Walk. This past weekend i walked 8.55 miles on Saturday and 6.08 miles on Sunday.





The training has been going well. What i am noticing is how TIRED i am come 7pm on Saturdays and Sundays. I'm hydrating and eating right and i'm stretching more then i ever have...but i THINK i need a bit more sleep. On Friday night/Saturday mornings i get roughly 6-7hrs of rest. I may need to up it to 8ish hours of sleep. I can feel the difference when i sleep more.





emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

So last time i showed you two dresses and it looks like everyone LOVES the 2nd dress.







BUT i have another dress that i've only worn once...PLEASE excuse me...i just woke up and thought about the dress so i'm a mess...lol




Thoughts?

    The third dress is pretty similar to the second one (which I voted for in your last blog), but I think I actually like it a little better, because it's a little brighter.

    They are all so cute! It is between # 2 and #3 for my favorite on you, maybe leaning a little towards #3. And Congrats on the training! Sounds like you are doing great

    I didn't "vote" earlier because I like Dress #1 and I was the only person who did so I thought something must be wrong with me. But now I've decided to join in and my vote is....Dress #3! It's adorable. I also really like Dress #1. It's elegant....

    i really ,really love the first dress and when you loose a bit of weight you will look a knock out in it.i like the second dress as well and at the moment the second dress does look better on you.will have to see them nearer the wedding date to give a final verdict at the moment number two is in the lead but that doesn´t mean it will stay there.like i said i really ,really love the first dress,lol. emoticon

    Love Dress #2...but I am guessing ya kinda got that by now. emoticon I really wanna hang out with you for a day...I bet you are such a BLAST!!! I think you are gonna Make that Wedding Reception!!!

The reason why I love the 2nd dress is because it has that adorable belt that cinches it all together...It's a V neck, which to me is always flattering...It fits your curves nicely. If I were dressing for the occasion...I would get some nice long Black beads, or a Chain, pearls...Something long, and then another one that is closer to your neck. Tighter. more like a choker..addd a nice dangly bracelet...Put a pretty flower in your hair, slap on your High Heels and go Dance Lil Sista!!!

I KNOW you are Gonna ROCK the Reception!!!

    Want a perspective form a guy? Both look good on you but I agree with the ladies the 2nd one is the best of the two, right now. However, consider this, as you continue doing well with your food and health your body may well change between now and wedding day. I'm a fan of ladies and the LBD! :)
