Yea Glou - on the gym joining! Are you going to do anything tonight or is it just the tour? You may not know. I try to take my DD's with me some too. They have a family Zumba night on Monday they are going to start doing with me. They want to start gymnastics - but right now my wallet can't handle it. I think your DD will be fine! :-)

I'm up for exercise! I asked what to bring and he said: A comfy outfit, Water and a towel. Sounds simple enough.

I'm really excited about it.

Cool - you need to blog what you do...oh and V could kiss my a$$. Sorry - I've been in a similar situation. I hate to lose friends, but people change - life causes that.

That's strange you just posted that. I just hit send on an email to her. I was trying to see it from her side, and I know she's been beat down, and now under stress because her crutch (her sister) has left...

So, the pacifist in me (who knew?) apologized that it seemed I was taking the company's side, but that wasn't my intent. Told her I loved her, and that I was just trying not to push her into a decision. Except more wordy...I'll post what I sent.

today -

well completed my first 5k this morning, time - 30:36...then was a bit of psycho, and went back to the gym w/my trainer (he ran w/me) and did a 45min weight lifting circut - all upper arms & abs.

trying to soak it all in, pretty proud of myself but need to keep the ego in check by heading back out in the AM to the gym....

thanks for all the support,

lulu

I did it! DD and I got up this morning and went and there were about 2 other people in the gym.

We did 20 minutes on the eliptical (1.5 miles according the machine's numbers)

Then, I moved on to the treadmill - what a difference from my crappy home one. I ran for 10 minutes straight and didn't even feel it!

Then, I did the circuit training for two rounds. Then on the bike for 10.

After, DD and stretched on the mats for another 10 minutes.

It was like a buffet, only the healthy kind. I felt great afterwards!

Another plus was that it was great bonding with DD and me. We weren't always on the same machine, but for the most part we were with each other.

Tomorrow I'm dragging DH with me and we're going again. My goal is to get rid of the treadmill in the living room and put a hutch there...I just need to work on DH for a little while longer.

:crying:

Great job guys!!

Well, I got to the gym this evening and it was closed. Didn't know it closed at 6:00. So, I drove over to the walk/bike trail and ran 3 miles, well I ran most of it. I walked for a couple of minutes a few times in between.

Way to go everyone!! We decided to go to our land yesterday. I just got home. I forgot to take my running shoes and running in boots is just not an option. So...I walked. I don't know how far but it was a long way. I plan to run at least 3 miles today!!

Ya'll - I did NOTHING yesterday. Well - I did a lot of walking at the Georgia National Fair. So I guess I did do something. However, I treated myself and ate what I wanted. Hey it is FAIR food - once a year for me. No regrets. I have my nieces birthday party today to go to, but when we get back I'm going for a run around the block. Going to see if DH will come with me :-)

      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

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
