Poor groundhog getting wakened during his winter sleep. <BR> <BR> I have lost 2 lbs last week, still trying to remember to drink 8 glasses of hard to remember...I think about it and instead of getting up to fill my water bottle, I get onto something else and forget. <BR> <BR> Started training for the 60km walk in June, on Sunday actually walked 7 km (about 5 miles)...that's alot f... Thu, 1 Feb 2007 09:30:06 EST January 29, 2007 I will maintain that 180 is my starting weight, and I think it was a fluke that the scale read 176 two weeks ago. So I weighed myself this morning and the scale read 178. <BR> <BR> I started training for the end breast cancer walk and walked 7 km = 4.35 miles, I'm so proud of myself, however, I am a bit stiff today, but it feels good cause I accomplished something significant. Mon, 29 Jan 2007 07:48:52 EST JANUARY 26, 2007 I can't figure out why 2 weeks ago I was 176 and last night 181...this is very frustrating, it's probably cause I'm not swimming like I was last year. <BR> <BR> Sunday morning I am going to start training for the 60 km walk to end breast cancer. I have 2 donors now, but I am still a long way from the $2,000 I need. <BR> <BR> Talked to Andrew last night, he's finally back in the country, sure miss my friend...I told him to go to and have a look at my personal website....a... Fri, 26 Jan 2007 08:37:39 EST January 23, 2007 I'm having trouble keeping my grazing under control. I suppose not drinking my daily 8 glasses is one reason. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow I will pick up my shoes to start training for the 60 km walk for ending breast cancer. I'm really pumped about this and pray everyday that I will have the strength and stamina to do it. <BR> <BR> Tue, 23 Jan 2007 13:02:15 EST January 16, 2007 I signed up for the end cancer 60km walk last night and received my training T-shirt. As soon as I get my information package with my training notebook and buy my shoes, I will start training. <BR> <BR> I weighed myself yesterday morning and the scale said I was 179 lbs. <BR> <BR> I weighed myself this morning and the scale said I was 176...I believe this weight WOO HOO! <BR> <BR> I believe I am losing inches because I put on a vest that was a bit snug and to my surprise it fits perfectly... Tue, 16 Jan 2007 07:55:57 EST January 15, 2007 Well today is my 6 month wedding anniversay, I can't believe how fast the time has gone by. My husband and I have a lot of fun together and I think that is part of it. <BR> <BR> This weekend was pretty good walking wise...but food wise....well....not bad but could have been better. <BR> <BR> I am going to an orientation session tonight for the "Walk for the Cure" walk for breast cancer. The walk is 60 km = 38.7 how's that for a challenge. I've been fitted for good shoes and w... Mon, 15 Jan 2007 08:52:08 EST Perserverence Today, I'm feeling pretty good... <BR> <BR> I've been looking at the Blood Pressure board and must admit it's an interesting area. I've noticed that I've been feeling a bit light headed from time-to-time and am wondering if my blood pressure is low or if I'm incorporating hidding sodium in my food. <BR> <BR> I'm discouraged with my husband, he doesn't seem to care about his health. He needs to lose weight, however, he's going through a very bad time with his son, and he is an emotional ea... Fri, 12 Jan 2007 09:34:26 EST
