I'm with it! I'm working out 5-6 days a week. I informally joined up with the 500 miles on the treadmill group when it started up in Jan. In fact, I set up a little program using that idea with some friends and family members and I am giving the cash prizes when they get to 500 miles! I am just over 200 miles right now, myself! So, I'm pretty pleased with it! Last week, I joined the Jillian Michaels workout line just to shake up my routine a bit! I love it when people talk in the exercise threads, but it seems that it's not as active as the other sites! HMMM? We need to shake that up!!!

The miles sound cool...but I am at the beginners stage...I think doing the miles would make me feel overwhelmed so I am just concentrating on the time instead...

Well, I'lm going to miss you all this month. My plastic surgery is tomorrow and I just wanted to wish everyone a good March. Hopefully, I'll be joing you again in April or May. I wanted to lose 20 pounds and only made 10, but I really feel like this group helped me. I loved posting the weekly results. I hope you guys keep it up. Check out my progress on my thread in the Cosmetic Surgery section. I'll be updating how everything is going. I'm really freaking out today, but I know it's all going to be all right. Well tomorrow I'll be surgery around 6 hours, so I guess I'll be doing my own mini-marathon. LOL! See you soon.

Here's an interesting article I found it's called The Couch-to-5K Running Plan. It gets you started slowly and brings you to running 3 miles in a matter of 2 months. Check it out :angry:

Jess-I decided to post over here instead of the Feb thread. Thanks for the great words of encouragement. I am seeing lots of results. After almost 3 wks of plateauing, I have lost about 10 lbs in the past two weeks.:thumbup:

Now, for my workout today. I'm working the late day shift, so I got both in this morning:

Upper body: 40 minutes of strength

Cardio: elliptical for 100 minutes/8.14 miles/1712 calories.

Little run down as I am still fighting the last vestiges (I hope) of this darn flu bug, but I made it.

Keep up all the great work everyone! Spring is almost here:thumbup:

And, WHERE IS STEF? :angry: We miss you!

Karey~ My thoughts are with you as you go through this tranformation!!! I am excited for you!! I will try to keep checking up on you!! I know you'll do great!!

Ceraded~ If your doing that great and still just getting over the sickness that is awesome!

Where is whosyadaddy and stef ? I miss you both!!

I hit the gym Saturday, and did my zumba thing!! Then I worked out all my muscles and abs....Needless to say it kicked my butt, all over again.

I know I must not be working hard enough at home.. It's monday now, and my goal is to tuck kids in bed tonight and hit the gym for zumba and cardio on the elliptical tonight..I am thinking I may take my dog for a walk at one of the high schools this afternoon...I am so stressed with school, I figure I need to get some exercise. I know it will make me feel better. The weather is awesome today! Bright Sunny skies, and in the 50's..It makes me so happy to see this weather...I will enjoy it as tomorrow back into the 30's. Tomorrow is my fill day...I am happy about that..I know I need one..I am down one pound this week so that made me happy...But boy I am so close to 100 lbs off I can taste it!! Okay well I hope everyone has a great workout week!!!!

Okay, I finally get a moment to check in, and everyone moved away and didn't leave a forwarding address for me! BUT I FOUND YOU! LOL :thumbup:

I'm still around, just don't have much time at all to post. I got with GOOGLE and figured out what the problem is with the spreadsheet, so that will corrected in the next few days. Hubby is home, so I am spending most of my time with him while I can. Also, being a new moderator takes some time, too...so I just can't post as much. I will be back in full force when hubby goes back to work, though.

I'm still working out every day as usual, except for last Friday, when hubby and I went golfing. Had a blast! I never thought I would like chasing that little white ball around! But I completely and thoroughly SUCK at it, so it is a real ego thing for me right now...I could have thrown my clubs in the Water countless times! LOL

I WILL GET GOOD AT IT! :cursing:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I MISS Y'ALL! :angry:

P.S. KAREY - Good luck girl! You will do great! Just because you aren't exercising doesn't mean you can't check in with us! We still want to hear from you! You'll be in my prayers for an excellent procedure and speedy recovery.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
