What a week, what a week! I had more drama in my life this week than a Broadway play. But I got past my early breakdown and got busy with other things. Of course, the drama continued, and actually escalated, but I stayed with my program.

The weather was outstanding, and I got out walking on the local bike trail. Walked with my long-legged friend. She's not intentionally trying to kill me, but I am definitely half dead when we are finished. We walked about 6 miles yesterday AND today. I got new tennies to handle all the stress on my feet, and they worked out pretty well. So I was happy about that. But my feet were soooo tired after our walk today that I had to wear my soft, squishy uggs to the grocery store. Nice.

And I had a friend fill the tires and tune up my bike last night. I didn't get a chance to ride, but took it for a little test run and its all set to go. I am really looking forward to riding on the bike trails. Fortunately for me, my bike seat is a really good one and I will most likely avoid the painful butt bone I normally get when I ride any distance. Hurray for that! Sadly, it's looking like we are going to get rain, and quite possibly snow, over the weekend. Booooo! I'm ready to roll and that will keep me from it. :)

Might be just as well though. I'm feeling a wee bit funky tonight. I reeeaaaallllly hope I'm not getting the stomach flu, but I feel a teensy bit nauseous. I thought maybe I just didn't get enough to eat today, so I tried to figure out what I should have to eat. I finally settled for my latest happy meal - multigrain cheerios. Love 'em. 110 calories plus soy milk. Filling but not heavy. Perfect. Especially at night. Cripe I feel like a spokesperson for General Mills. Haha.

Well anyway, I need to get some sleep. Hopefully I won't wake up sick. Pray, pray, pray. I do NOT want that. Not at all. And as for you, I hope you sleep peacefully and I hope you get to sleep in tomorrow -- if you want to, that is. I love Saturdays! God Bless.


  1. Wow, you've lost a lot of weight since you started! That's really inspiring. I've been going around fitness blogs looking for people to keep tabs with and get that extra push from. Will be back for more. :)

  2. Hi Elle! I searched and searched for a weight loss blog that I could follow. I am still looking. Most lose, then start blogging about their life in general. I don't share all of my life details. I focus on the weight loss issues. And I am determined to keep at it. So I hope I can inspire you.

    Just an fyi: the walk to Vegas on the sidebar is the number of miles I walk or run as part of my exercise. I plan to actually GO to Vegas when I "walk" there in exercise miles.

    Okay - tomorrow is Monday. Get a move on girlie girl. June 1st will be here before you know it!

  3. I don't think I'll be blogging about my life either. I really hope I can keep the same determination. I'm sick and tired of the shape I'm in.

    We're pretty much the same weight right this very moment. I hope I can keep up with you. :)
