OMG - Its August!!?? But...but it was just April, wasn't it? I better get started on my Christmas shopping!

Lost 3.5 - I still average 1 pound a week since 3/2010 and 1/2011.

B1: coffee, yogurt
B2: hb eggs, grapes
L: WW wraps with chicken breast and shredded carrot
S: Fiber bar
D: sauted onion, carrots, zucchini, pork chop
E: yoga, gonna try salsa class at the gym (kinda similar to zumba, same instructor)

jab - Gosh, good to see you! I hope you're doing okay.

jltcmom - Glad you decided to come back and post. Congrats on being a non-smoker! I hear ya on the carb watch. I prefer a higher protein diet myself (if you can't tell from my menus).

mj - Congrats on your loss - you smoked the 180's! And I'm with you - Harry Potter is not my thing either...neither was the Twilight series.

penguin - I did watch some youtube stuff for zumba steps and they broke down the easy steps nicely. I just can't remember the routines That why I stand in the back row!

lottie - Some days work can be like going to the gym, eh?

DixC Chix--thanks for starting us off for August! Seriously...how in the world did it become August already???? Nope, I didn't get into twilight either.

Oh my goodness...the funniest thing happened at the gym tonight! I was up in the air on the asst pull up machine. I was hot, sweaty, feeling gross but good at the same time...the song Sexy B**ch came on my iPod and I started to laugh. I was feeling anything but sexy...A piece of advice...don't EVER laugh when you are on this machine, no matter what song comes on! I was holding on for dear life, laughing to myself...yep, I must have been quite a sight to see

Salsa dancing was fun and a lot like Zumba (but with more hip swinging!). In fact she played a couple of zumba songs and there were a few familiar steps - just what I was hoping for! Gonna add that to my weekly exercise classes.

B1: coffee, yogurt
B2: hb eggs, pumpkin
L: WW wraps with lc cheese, bell pepper, spinach, plums
D: sauted onion, carrots, zucchini, pork chop
E: bodypump, zumba

So last night bf came home and said he wanted to go to our fave restaurant. I always get fried tofu there, and I"m on a kick of no fried food so I said I'd rather not.

but then...

He gave me the good news! He got the promotion and he is now sous chef. Excitement!

So, to celebrate we went ahead and went. BUT, I didn't get fried tofu. I got a shell/chipless taco salad with nothing on it but lettuce, black beans andd jalapenos with some hot sauce.

I might just get that there for now on.

Also we watched the documentary about juice fasting, fat, sick, and nearly dead and we were so inspired. We're going to try a 10 day juice fast starting tomorrow.

B= milk vits
L= Brat, cheese slice, salad
S= Choc chips {TOM related, but not a good excuse...}
S= peach
D= homemade veggie soup, bread/butter
S= apple w PB
E= 20min cardio/weights with Leslie

At least I felt better today and didn't sleep all day. I'm snuffly so I think that was allergy related.

Mary, welcome, glad to have you join us!

Chix, salsa dancing is about the only dance related workout I can do without falling on my face. Fun stuff!

Lottie, congratulations to your guy! Wonderful news. Wait...he didn't cook you a gourmet meal to celebrate!?!?! His food is proabably better anyway.

MJ, everyone else was wondering what is so funny about chin ups??

Good Morning everyone! I had an NSV yesterday...I wore a dress to work. Probably the first time ever. I bought it at Kohl's on clearance and w/ "Kohl's cash" so it was only $10! It is really cute! I never used to wear dresses, honestly, because my tukus was SO much bigger that they always hung uneven at the bottem...not a cute look, that's for sure! I will definitely be buying more skirts or dresses now!

patchworkpenguin--YEA for feeling better! I know my allergies are horrible this year...I'm sure they were wondering, LOL!

DixC Chix--AWESOME workout! And today...6 hours of gardening??? Wow. You are definitely getting muscles! Thanks! It was harder than I thought...I actually had to "let go" of my first few cute workout clothes purchases...they are gone, now, but I did contemplate keeping them. They are much too big to wear, of course. So, I kept asking myself..."would Laurie (zumba instructor) say they are too big?" She is ALWAYS telling me this or that is too big and to get rid of it, lol! It helped. I told her on Facebook last night and her response was "if you have to even ask yourself the question, then the answer is YES"

Good Morning! I am awake waaaaay to early today....could be a long day!

lottie--good luck with the juice fast!

patchworkpenguin--have a great time w/ your sis before she goes back.

Oh my goodness...my strength training workout kicked my booty last night! I honestly didn't know if I was going to be able to finish the 3rd circuit. But, I changed the music on my iPod and finished strong. I posted that on Facebook and my trainer made some awesome comments. So glad I have him!!!

Tonight is Zumba, which will be awesome! I am actually going to wear my new Zumba tank top to class. YIKES! Our instructor had some made for her studio, they are super cute, but I have NEVER worn a tank to workout in before. My instructor has been 'after' me to wear it ever since they came in. So....tonight is the night!

Beverlyjoy--How are you doing? I've been thinking about you.....
