Here is my weekly Extreme Makeover : Me Edition post. Some of us need to take time for ourselves a little more often than we do and Amber has gathered a wonderful group of women to help support one another. Check it out!
Another week down and I just have not really gotten on the bandwagon as well as I had hoped. Sure, I am still doing, but not doing as much as I would like to be. I did get 3 miles in under 30 minutes last week and without any music since my ipod was stolen. I also ran again on Saturday morning, pushing the two oldest monkeys and it seemed like we ran further this time. We took the monkeys to practice some soccer afterward the run and did a LOT of running back and forth chasing them. These were the goals I set for last week and I did accomplish them.
I have been a slacker THIS week though, today will be the first day back at the gym. So I was VERY surprised when I (on a whim) decided to step on the scale yesterday morning and I was not in the 150 pound range anymore, barely, but still! I felt great and refuse to check again until next week. I try not to get on the scale much because I would much rather go by how fit I feel and what size pants I am wearing.
We are going to the beach next week and I am really looking forward to it. I need some relaxation time and time with my family. I plan on dragging my mom out for jogs, chasing the monkeys, swimming (eek - wear a swimsuit?!?!), and maybe playing some beach soccer with the monkeys and my cousins. I also plan on being happy, laughing, hugging, snuggling, and maybe even reading during the few days we are there. I want to simply sit back and watch the monkeys in all of their glory and take a million pictures to remember every moment. So these are my goals and I hope I can stick to them!
