I started this Blog to help me in my journey to get thinner and healthier. It helps me keep accountable with my exercise. I didn't get overweight over night and I am working hard to get back in shape. My friend told me that It's not a Sprint but that it's a Marathon!!

New Incentive

 My Son Tom got engaged last Thursday night down at the Riverwalk in San Antonio. Her name is Brittney and we really like her. They are a good match.
 Matching tatoos!!!
 TADA!!!
The wedding is Oct 1st. I  have 6 months to get more weight off. This is my new Incentive!
I want to look super cute when dancing the Mother/Son dance!!
I have always had this idea for this occasion. Dance starts out slow and then we break out and do a really pretty dance with some cool moves and so that is what I am planning but I haven't told my son just yet Ha! We both have 2 left feet so this should be interesting. I am calling tomorrow about dance lessons.....he is gonna be thrilled!! NOT lol.  But I think he will do it for  his mom!!

My neck is getting better but the Dr hasn't cleared me for my regular exercise just yet. I can only walk but it is still freezing here and I am a fair weather walker!! lol
I went Mon down to the pool at the YMCA and worked out some.
Funny story: Pool hours today were 11-12:30. I got off at 9:30, ran a few errands and got to the Y about 10:30. I had gotten up at 3:50 AM for work and so I thought Id take a little snooze for 30 min. I settled in nice and comfy in the seat and had a nice snooze. Only bad thing was that I woke up at 12:20!!! LOL. So much for the pool today. I will hit  it tomorrow for sure!! Guess I was really tired.....I couldn't believe that I slept that long and I wondered what people thought that walked by the car LOL. Hopefully I didn't have my mouth wide open, LOL

April 1st weigh in

April 1st....Well..I lost 9 lbs about 10 days ago and this week I lost another 10 lbs!!
And I haven't even exercised. I am so excited.
I haven't exercised cuz I am still dealing with this bum neck. It started hurting a in Jan. but only every so often then it started getting more frequently. It hurts on the left side of my neck and around to the back of the neck and then down to my lower back. it was getting pretty painful and I have a high pain tolerance so I decided to go to the chiropractor.
After X-rays...its arthritis in my neck and it is really inflamed!! When it gets bad...then it makes my back hurt. Plus I am out of alignment. He says once I get aligned again and the inflammation goes down then I should be good to go. I have been wearing lots of ice packs and it is feeling better but NO exercise. I am hoping that he will let me begin again this week.
And know what about those 10 lbs? APRIL FOOLS!!! LOL

yah....no exercise...no lbs gone!!! *sigh*
