Holy Hannah Banana! Got on the scale today and wow!!! I was completely shocked to see that number. Thrilled, of course. But shocked! I keep thinking I don't deserve it, but that's not true. I DO deserve it. And I am happy, happy, happy!
I have to tell you, that picture of Miss Piggy from yesterday had me chuckling all day today. Every time I thought of it I burst out laughing. "What If You Were Miss Piggy?" I mean, for heaven's sake -- I AM Miss Piggy!!! The irony of it is just a hoot. Maybe you don't think so, but I do. Cracks me up!!!
Anywho . . . good day today. Back to the gym for day 2 of my two week goal. I worked really hard. Got on the treadmill and alternated running and walking. The running is what my bod' wants to do. My knees have a STRONG objection. But it gets easier as I lose the weight. If those people on the Biggest Loser can get on a treadmill and run at a speed of 15, then I can certainly get on mine and run at 4.5 or 5.o1 Right? Right! So I alternated between walking at 3.8 and running at 4.5 or so. I tried to bring it up, but didn't do so well sustaining it. Still, its a far cry from the 3.3 I started at in January, so I am satisfied. When I was finished I biked for 15 minutes. Sauna. Shower. Bliss.
I know I have to keep going back to that gym. Right now I'm just like that little engine that could -- I just have an extra large caboose! HAH!!! And there is some unseen force motivating me to do that right now, so I feel like success is just around the bend, or over the hill, or whatever it is. It's not far off, anyway.
Well friends, I am truly exhausted tonight. Had a little too much energy tea before I went to bed last night and I tossed and turned until 3:00 in the morning. Booo!!! I hope to sleep better tonight. So I'll sign off here, with a big THANK YOU JESUS for the super-dee-duper drop in my weight. You're awesome! And so, my friends, are all of you. A peaceful slumber to you all! :)
