For the LAP challenge, we have to blog about a motivational song. I have read several blogs, and all of them are great. If you know me, you know that I am horrible about knowing song titles and artists. I know a lot of songs, and can even sing along with them, but if you asked me to name the title and artist, for most of them, I have no clue. Saying that, it makes this challenge harder for me to complete, LOL.
Since Kitty asked us to pick one song, I am going to have to pick the song that she picked. The Climb, by Milley Cyrus. This song has touched me since I first heard it at the movies with my daughter. I had tears in my eyes as I listened to it, and when we got home, my daughter had to go to Youtube and listen to all the songs all over again.
The Climb is a song that can be used in many different areas of our lives. When I was listening to it, I thought about our journey here on Spark. But the more I listen to it, the more that I can identify with it in other parts of my life.
Of course there are many other songs that I find motivational too. I can hear them when I am doing different things during the day. But again, I know the words to the songs, but cannot remember the names of the songs.
Thanks Kitty for this challenge!
Go team 3!!!

I love the buddy challenge for LAP. I am getting to know some team members that I really didn't know, and having a lot of fun doing it. Everyone is so encouraging.
I think that I am doing well, it is keeping me moving every day, which is a goal of mine for the month to help me get back on track. I am still struggling with tracking my food everyday. I don't know why this is so hard, I used to be really good at it when I first joined SparkPeople over 2 years ago. I guess I am just getting lazy.
If anyone is interested in joining Losing and Playing. It is a great team with lots of interaction. My team is team 3 for the buddy challenge and we would love to meet new people. Go Team 3!!!!

Ughhh! What a way to end this week! I borrowed my dad's car today to get to work, so that my friend could do the work that needed to be done on my car for inspection. So I am on my way to work, and pass the store that I normally stop at, (I was running a little late), and when I got close to work, I still had 10 min before I had to start, so I stopped by a store near work instead. Turn the car off, go inside, get some iced tea, and go back out to the car. I tried to start it, click, click, click. Tried again, click, click, click. Oh boy, called my dad, let him know that the car left me sit. He said that it sounded like the battery, and he had thought about replacing it earlier this week, but had not gotten around to it. Well luckily, the store that I happened to get stuck at had a auto shop attached to it, and it was open. (thank goodness for small favors!) So I asked someone to look at the car, and give me an estimate. Called my dad and let him know, and he said, just let them do it and he would pay me back. Since it was the battery, it didn't take them long to get it fixed, and I was only 45 min late for work.
The guys that work with me on Sat are so sweet. I called the guy that starts at the same time as me and asked him to come pick me up, that was before I knew how long it would take to get it fixed. So he showed up at the store, and I sent him into work and told him that since it wouldn't take very long, I would just wait. Because if I didn't, then we would have had a totally different issue on how to get over to pick up the car when it was done.
Well, while I was waiting for the car to be done, the guy who was at work waiting for one of us to come in and relieve him stopped by the store to see how the car was coming. I let him know that it was almost done, and I was just waiting for the bill.
Although this happened on my way to work, it could have been worse. I could not have found out about it until I was ready to go home this evening at 8 pm. So I am really thankful for whatever possesed me to stop this morning, LOL!
Hope everyone is having a much better day then I had so far!

I am still struggling with myself. so much so that I didn't even log in yesterday. I wanted to, but I had a lot of running around to do, and stuff around the house, that I just didn't log in at all. That was the first time in 2 years that I didn't log in on a day that I had access to a computer. Now that I look at it that way, I guess it really isn't that bad. Even though I didn't log in, I still ate decently, and got some time in the garden, and did a bunch of walking. So it was not a bad day by any means, just a day that I didn't feel like logging on.
Thanks for the support. It is what keeps me coming back!

I don't have any before pics yet, hopefully I can get my friend to take them tomorrow.
I am starting bootcamp at 188 pounds, and I hope to be at 180 at the end of bootcamp. I will have to get my measurements tomorrow as well.
I am hoping that this will get me back into the exercise mode that I have gotten out of over the past month. I want to get back to where I was over the summer again. I cannot believe that I let myself slack off as badly as I did. I will not let that happen again!
