OMGosh, we're in the home stretch now girls!!! Since the last week is only 3 days how is that working for goals like mine where I have 'Strength Training 3 times a week'? I typically do my ST'ing M, W, F and well...it's the weekend. Should I throw one more ST'ing day in there, perhaps Sunday? Or should I call that goal 'MET'?

I am still amazed everytime I come to see everyone's updates--we did some serious movin' ladies! You should all be insanely proud of yourselves!!! :grouphug:

FullSteamAhead 05-29-2009 06:53 PM

:hug:Hiiiiiiiiii girls :)

JACQUIIIIIII :congrat: oh having met goal! :carrot::carrot::carrot: wtg!

CRAZYMAMA, **** yes girl! :) yes you have met goal! :congrat::carrot::carrot::carrot: Absolutely! If dividing goals into weeks of that nature (like the s.t 3x per week say)...I would go by a 28 day or 4 week month and t han anything else on top is gravy. Ifff you hadn't gotten the 3rd s.t workout in on the fourth week but one of the extra days, I would still call it a goal met. wtg crazy mama :)

Girls, I read all the posts and am just awed and inspired and.......can't really find all the words at the moment but just want to say congratulations to everyone :congrat: on the workouts, the diligence, etc. :carrot::carrot::carrot:

Jacqui_D 05-30-2009 11:24 AM

Good morning ladies!! My DH and I walked our new mastiffs for the first time today! Only once did the one I was walking take off with me and my DH just happened to catch the leash as she came running by him, lol! They actually did amazingly well!! I'm not sure what spooked our female when she started running, but you'd never guess I weigh 189 lbs with the way she took off with me, lol! Thank goodness DH was there! He's 6'5" 270 lbs, and he just reached out one-handed and stopped her on a dime! :D

Only today and tomorrow left in May, and then we get to start anew in June! :woohoo:
