My sister really pushed me to enter and actually signed me up. I found out by receiving the email to my phone! I'm excited to do this. I know I will probably not be able to run 100% of the race but I'm confident I can try and run most of it. So far I have accomplished running 1 1/2 miles straight. The only problem is that my sneakers hurt my feet. I have to make time to get proper shoes ASAP. It's on my To Do list this week. <BR> <BR... Sun, 14 Aug 2011 12:45:28 EST Long Weekend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4028351 So here goes nothing...this weekend is going to be a great one but a challenge. I have Monday off and its my husband's birthday. We're going to dinner tonight with my family, tomorrow night with friends, Sunday with his family and Monday just us. I really hope to make healthy choices and not go crazy. I will definitely not be drinking every night. Maybe a glass of wine on only 2 of the nights out. I'm anxious about it. <BR> <BR> I have been having a really tough time with losing weight so f... Fri, 18 Feb 2011 15:50:48 EST GYM http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3959224 So I did it. I finally joined a gym. My New Year's resolution came 24 days late...but better late then never. I worked out yesterday and boy did it feel great. I'm so ready to get back into working out and making a better me. Tue, 25 Jan 2011 11:12:06 EST Really?? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3936976 So after losing a whopping 3 pounds last week and feeling great, this week I fell backwards. I gained half of that back! How can it be? Maybe because we had a party this weekend and I was off yesterday? Or was it that I wasn't dedicated enough to my workouts? Whatever the case I'm very mad at myself and have to make a point to get better this week... <BR> <em>39</em> Tue, 18 Jan 2011 11:42:36 EST Wii Fit? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3917929 So the Target by me has Wii Fit and throws in the Biggest Loser game for $99. I was wondering if anyone thought it would be worth a try. I do go to my local gym and I use home dvd's but wasn't sure if this would be something worth buying. <BR> <BR> On a lighter note, I lost 3 pounds last week and couldn't be more ecstatic. I'm so thrilled with those results and so happy I joined SP. Thank you to everyone for the support and kind words. I look forward to losing another 3 (hopefully) this wee... Wed, 12 Jan 2011 13:30:25 EST Alli http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3901310 This is my first week with SP and I'm starting to get the hang of it. I have weighed myself already to see my progress and I have not lost any weight. This is depressing. <BR> Has anyone done Alli? My co-workers have found success by using it but I'm not sure I want to start taking a pill. Thoughts? Fri, 7 Jan 2011 18:14:10 EST
