I missed it AGAIN?!?!?!?

How did I miss Ten Things Thursday AGAIN!

1.  I am really bad at telling dates.

2.  I signed up for my first 5K run on September 23rd as an early birthday present for myself (which is September 28th).

3.  My husband and I are in the process of looking to swap my Scion xB to another mini-van....yes, that will make us a two mini-van family.....go suburban life!

4. Salads, after not eating vegetables for 10 weeks plus, makes your tumbly more than a little rumbly...

5.  I am VERY proud of my efforts at the gym this week....I am easily hitting 3000 strides on the elliptical in less than 45 minutes, so time to either up the strides or lower the time....thinking of making it 4000 strides in 45 minutes....

6.  Also, along same lines, been "this close" to hitting my stretch goal of 15,000 steps per day.  I KNOW....who is this girl and where did she come from?!?!?!?!?

7.  Now that my doctor has given the the thumbs up for protein bars, I LOVE Zone Perfect Chocolate Almond Raisin....I should always listen to Amanda as she always knows best.

8.  I think that my Dr.  FINALLY has gotten the sleep meds right and I am getting between 6-8 hours a night and doing much better during the day.  Can I get a Wooot-Woot!

9.  I am also meeting my personal goal and I have not self-weighed in 5 days......

10.  I am more and more convinced every day that this was the right choice for me.....

The end....


  1. Superb gym efforts. Well done you!

  2. Oh.. I'm so excited for you and I'm with you on the scale, see told you would not take me long to join the "get rid of it band wagon"

    Your gym work is most excellent. I'm impressed considering not your fav. I might suggest a type of workout called tabata style. It is 20 seconds high speed then like take 30 seconds down....repeat until your ready to kill yourself. Your overall time may drop to like 30 minutes....but your results will be better.

    Google it and get some more info.

  3. WOOOT WOOOOOOT!! Love your post! Exercising like a pro....proud for you!

  4. I am so addicted to it now...I get the high that people talk about from exercising!

    1. YAY! It takes courage to start but once you get going it's addicting! :)

  5. I love and admire your number 9! I keep telling myself I will not get on the dumb thing, but it is hard!! I am out of town all this week and will not be able to weigh and I tell myself I will not just jump on it first thing!
