nice hot weekend--

wow, its been AWESOME...much looking forward to the extra bonus day off on July 1st.... Went to my familys cabin on the lake for a Kareokee and suntanning extravaganza....it was a blast, didn't eat on track very well- but I spent some great time with family and friends and it was much needed.... I spent some time reflectingo n ym weightloss while there and the pictures reinforced some of the things I've been thinking....I've posted on my "who is" blog some pics taht show myself that I really do need to continue- I'm not a cute as I sometimes let myself think...
I get a little cocky

but in anycase...its on to another week- I'm up about 5 pds on the scale this afternoon...but some fibre, water and veggies should get me back on track...my legs are soo sunburnt that I can't barely walk as when the skin moves/jiggles etc it HURTS...so no run for me tonight, however I'm sweating just sitting in my house

40 pds DOWN.... woo woo....

Today was a great day....well almost... but I totally overted the wedding weight gain and managed to lose 0.8 to be down 40.2 .....

SO I'm focused, I'm ready to take on the rest of the summer, do some more races, to be fit, to eat healthy and lose 10 pds this summer...

as you can see my next focus isn't to loose hit 50pds lost...its to loose 10 pds this summer.....

that sounds attainable doesnt it??

this weekend I'm heading to the lake for some R&R, Kareokee and a couple jello shooters... should be fun...I didn't go running tonight but plan to get in one before I leave for the lake...and atleast 2 more before next WI...

also I got the WW newsletter this month and I saw the success story-- Christina-she rocks... her story is SO similar to mine that I wish I could find out more about her journey... reading her story gives me hope :) seeing her before pic-reminds me of my before pic (except mine is MUCH WORSE-like 30pds) ..and inspires me for a great after pic like hers

hears to Christina!! CHEERS

Recovering from a Wedding Weekend...

Wow- you'de think after about 40 weeks on WW I would have learned how to conduct myself at a wedding buffet...but NO....I didn't and I PIGGED out....and PIGGED out... not just at the wedding Saturday night- but on friday night at the bridal shower as well grrrr Ifelt sooooo sick/bloated/sad/disappointed with myself all day sunday...and when I tried to eat just healthy things on sunday I felt like my body was going through withdrawls and I sabatoged myself some more....when I weighed myself sunday night I was up 7 pds....

in anycase I drakn like 3 L of water, ate responsibly and played 13holes of golf and did my walk/jog routine for 42 mins.... Today will be another responsible eating day and hopefully some more exercise if my body can handle it-- I'm sore this AM...usually i only play 9 holes- but it was twilight and you pay one price and can play as many as you like.... I was soo close to the 40pd lost that now I"m really quite disappointed in myself for letting myself act like such a hog

in good news- I received quite a few compliments from family members as to how much I've lost- so that was an up- but not enough to keep me from strappin on the feed bag and going to town....grrr

anyways- new day, new week, new motivation......

Run 3 mins, walk 1 9times...

was dreading it all day- went grocery shopping- to the driving range and hit 22 golf balls (2 of which made it past the 160yard mark woo woo) then came home cooked the hubby dinner and his favorite peanut butter cookies- which I don't like :) so not tempting...

then went out for my jog.walk...it was tiring and hard- there was 2 intervals that my legs were cramped soo bad I stop running 15 -25 seconds early but for the most part I DID IT....

playing golf with the work guys tomorrow nigth and with the construction buddies on wednesday... its going to be a gooood weekkk.

hope yours is to!

signed up for 5km on Friday

hey there hi there..
weekend and last week was a little slow- recovering from birthday festivities....gained 3 pds after the previous weeks 4 pd loss... al ittle frustereating but seems to be my pattern- I loose...then gain cuz I get cocky...so then I was trying better thsi week but then got sidetracke...so today , tomorrow and tuesday and wednesday will be back on track..going grocery shopping, going running with the doggie- doing laundry and cleaning the house...

the 5km is the "Longest Day 5k" not sure why its called that- but its a fundraiser for juvenille diabetes... so should be good- it has the race timing chip so I can get an accurate pace timing to see my improvement over the 8k in May...

looking forward to an active summer- if this frekin weather will clear up...

Talk to you later

its my birthday--I'll eat what I want to...eat what I want to...




I LALALALAL LOVE my birthday--- ALL ABOUT ME :) oh and I guess my mommy that brought me into the world


hheheh

just kidding


have a good one today!!

Fat Prison- seen on a couple different websites-

I want to tell you about a very unusual sort of prison. It's called Fat Prison. Why is it so unusual? Because it's completely voluntary.
No one sends us to Fat Prison, we send ourselves!

What's it like to be a fat prisoner? The rules are very strict. To begin with, each prisoner must wear regulation uniform. This consists of a baggy skirt or elasticated pants. Most prisoners pretend they don't mind walking around in this shapeless uniform, but secretly they hate it. They'd much rather walk down the street in a slim pair of jeans.
Exercise is strictly controlled Swimming or playing with children is forbidden. And no prisoner may walk more than a few yards at a time. The penalties for breaking this rule include sweating, shortness of breath, soreness and fatigue. After a few years without any sort of proper exercise, prisoners become so soft that the very idea of movement terrifies them. If you don't believe me, go up to a fat prisoner and suggest a nice long walk in the fresh air!
Everyday life The main feature of everyday life inside Fat Prison is tiredness. Prisoners carry lots of extra weight around on their bodies, so not surprisingly they suffer from chronic fatigue. Result? After doing their daily chores, most of them slump down exhausted in front of the TV.
Even when they allow themselves a night out, many prisoners find it difficult to enjoy themselves. They feel awkward about their shape so instead of mixing with other people they tend to sit in the corner with other fat prisoners.
Prison Mentality After many years of locking themselves away inside their Fat Prison, many prisoners develop a prison mentality. They lose confidence in themselves and their ability to "go straight". They look at slim people and think: "I'm never going to be like them!" They think they are doomed to stay in Fat Prison, forever. Result? They let themselves go completely.
Bad for Health Fat Prison is very bad for prisoners health. Don't forget, the greater our weight, the greater the strain on our joints and spine. And the fatter we grow, the harder our heart has to work to keep us going. No wonder so many fat prisoners get ill!
Depressing Fat Prison is a depressing experience, not only for the prisoners but also for their families. In fact, the children of fat prisoners often grow up to become prisoners themselves. It's a vicious cycle.
Question So why do so many people end up in Fat Prison? And even more important, why don't they leave once they discover how awful it is?
Answer Because they prefer to eat cookies, chocolate, potato chips, popcorn, doughnuts, fatty meat and creamy desserts. They know that this stuff makes them fat but they don't care. They'd rather go to prison than give up their regular mouthful of fat. *Some may have other reasons
Are you a fat prisoner? Have you locked yourself up in your own private Fat Prison? If so, here's some advice. Don't waste another day of your life in jail. Get out now!
All you have to do is stop eating junk and start eating properly and you can walk free tomorrow.
It may take a few months before your weight returns to normal, but your tiredness will lift immediately and within a week you'll feel ten times better. So what are you waiting for?Get out of your Fat Prison today and start really living!
