Thanks for all the good wishes--it will be COLD tomorrow but we are still planning to go for it!

Went out with the girls from the office today (mexican food!) but I ordered the lunch size chicken fajitas with corn tortillas and no refried beans so it wasn't too bad. Plus I brought in peanut butter cookies I made last night and I did not eat a single one...and there were none leftover to tempt me either.

2frus I am very impressed with your kickboxing. I am way too uncoordinated for that. Gotta get in some pilates now though so check in with y'all later.

I have to go to work. I had a uniform that is a t-shirt tucked in straight pants hanging on the front of my rack. Last night, I was gonna wear it today for sure. .... I can't do it. I didn't even try it on. I have on a short fitted top but it doesn't tuck in.
Argh .... my messed up head.
Go Lizzy ... run like the wind! I wanna hear an empowered report later.

Wow! I guess you have to get up pretty early to catch up with you lot. Is that the secret of your success? If it is, I'm in big trouble!

I have 25 days left until I leave for St. Croix. That's 25 opportunities to eat healthy, get a lot of exercise and sleep well. I am shooting for 4 pounds lost over the next 25 days. I think I'm up for the challenge!

Hope you all have a terrific Saturday! Can't wait to hear about the race, Liz!

Aww shucks Miss 127

Let us know how you do Lizz.

Veerie - perhaps that's it, early mornings are the secret to weight loss! We'll write the book and make millions! I was in bed at 8pm last night though... I was just bored and too tired to do any working out so I took myself to bed after a nice bubble bath and a book! I'm so sad - so bored if I can't work out

Lucky, ah it's not bad being tall at all at all! You shortstuffs can always wear heels

That is correct! And it's much easier to shorten pants than it is to make them longer!

Goils! I am soooo weary now! Phew, time for a nap methinks!

I never had to worry about pants being too short--my height is all in my torso!

Race update: well it was kind of how I expected..cold and very WINDY! The first half was all face to the wind which I am not used to so it slowed me down a bit but the second half was easier. Came in at 26:00 (not a great time for me) but because of all the college girls that jumped in front of me right at the end I came in 4th for my age group and didn't get a medal. Boo! My friend had a hard time with the wind so when I finished I headed back and ran the rest of the way with her too.

Now my boyfriend has the apartment in a shambles trying to set up for his new projector that comes in monday so I am just cleaning and getting things rearranged.

Congratulations, Liz!! That is fantastic. So you were running 8:22 minute miles, right? Even without wind, that is very impressive time! Yay for you!

It sure is quiet around here! Hope that means everyone is having a fun weekend.

I had a great day of eating and exercise yesterday and had been looking forward to an evening of sitting on the couch watching movies. Then my BF invited a friend from school over. She's tall, thin, perfectly dressed -- everything that I am not. I hate myself for saying this, but I instantly disliked her. I wish I could get over this comparing myself to others thing -- it seems very juvenile and petty. Still, I felt disheartened. Am I the only one who does this?

Nope Verrie, not alone at all. A few us shorties decided today that one of the nurses in our ER would have to be 'put down'. She just makes the rest of us look chubby.

Wow, you ladies were active this weekend. My dh is home on the weekends so I don't get a lot of computer time.

Congrats lizz!! Nothing wrong with being 4th.

Yay for normal people!!! Congrats 2 frus!!

I went shopping yesterday, minus my kids, so I was able to try on some clothes in peace. Much to my surprise I was able to fit into a size S skirt!! It's one of those cute long denim ones with the big slit and it looked good!! I should have bought it but I couldn't justify spending 55 on it. My dh would NOT have been happy with me. Still it put me in a great mood for the rest of the day.

Feeling very strong and ready to take on the world today. Lets hope this energy continues.

Gaylyn

This is a copy and paste of my post on another thread, that's how lazy I feel today ......
A new week ... hmmm. I'm a bit messed around. I just finished my 3rd of 4 weekends in a row (one more to go starting Thurs). Four or five shifts over the weekend, ya know. Everybody does the TGIF thing and was grouchy this morning because it was Monday. I feel like I live in the twilight zone.
I also feel like I need an abrupt halt, regather and restart. I just feel messed up!
I'm going to clean up my kitchen, get fabulous food out for supper and go have a nap. Then when I get up, I'm going to pretend it's a new day and go good.
Did you all read Ilene's post called something like are you lifting heavy enough? I think between that and my uber-supper ... I'll be off to the races!

Oh Gaylyn ... I wish your energy was transmittable. I'll just read your post over and over a few times
