Weekend Update and Dress Pic

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Here's the pic of me in my new dress. I'm so sorry it's a terrible picture. The sun was in my eyes and I'm not smiling. My husband took the pic and he doesn't really give me any direction! But anyway... I love the dress!

The weekend was pretty good. I'm up a couple lbs, which isn't too bad considering I went to a crawfish boil on Saturday.
It's getting hot in Texas!!! So glad to be thinner this year! Much more comfortable!

My plan for this next week is to start running again. I ran for the first time in months yesterday and I'm really sore today. I really need it. It's only a half an hour (2-3 miles). There's really no excuse not to do it. It's so beneficial and in such little time.
Also, it works out well for me to eat the same thing just about every day during the week. I can be more lenient and enjoy variety on the weekend, but eating the same safe foods daily during the week just makes life SO much easier!

    You are an inspiration and look lovely. I have three daughters, 18, 15 and 13 who struggle with self esteem even though they are lovely.

It's wonderful to see you working hard and reaping the benefits.

    You look absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I don't know if you consider yourself to be at goal or not -- but you couldn't be more perfect!

Wonderful dress on you -- you really show it off well.

    Very pretty :) Love the dress on you! My hubs is the same with taking pictures, lol. I live in the top of Texas and although we're still a little chilly here, its getting nicer everyday. Last Summer I weighed 240 in 108 degree weather. Its so uncomfortable and I am looking foward to being lighter this Summer too. I've been running too to get ready for a Color Run in Amarillo this June. Its awful, but so addicting. I complain while I'm doing it, but then feel great when its done. emoticon

    Awesome dress, looks so hot! and you're glowing...beautiful!

Be careful running...I know just because it causes me problems with my knees does not mean it does for everybody, but just be careful to not overdo it and have proper form emoticon

    Certainly not a terrible picture. Sounds like me getting the kids to take pictures of me! The just take it and run off, no looking for my 'perfect' one'

The dress looks fab, well what I really mean is that you look fab in it.

I am also one that does better on eating the same every day. It is all food I like so it does not feel like deprivation! I just need to get serious again this week!

Running is great. I am trying to get back into it again as well. Just 1/2 hr burns far more calories for me than an hour walking. So great for when scarce on time.

    Pretty dress! Way to go on starting to run again :)

    I agree, I eat the same meals during the week, too. I have found a wonderful group of foods that satisfies my desire to feel full and keeps me within my daily calorie requirements. Fortunately I don't get bored with eating the same types of foods instead I actually look forward to the full feeling I experience after I finish my lunch.
Good to read that you are running again. It is a great way to exercise and burns tons of calories! :)
BTW, the dress is beautiful, you are a shining star!

  You look great. If you did not explain in your blog, I thought you were going for the "cool" look. Do well with the half marathon.
