New Years Eve 2010

so would it be NYE without a blog? No, there are so many of us who sit here today thinking ugh a new year and I am still fat or why make NY resolutions when I can't stick to them. As I was reading WW boards today I saw many 2010 year in reviews. So as I sit here thinking man I am 20lbs heavier next year, I need to stop and look at the good things of 2010!

In 2010:

I started my first RN job!
I bought a house
I moved my family from CA to TX, taking on the feat of a 2 yr long distance relationship with my husband and single parenting!
I finished 2 half marathons

so I am sure there are many more things I have done but those are the things that come to mind. I will be bringing in the new year, sober, alone, and working. But tomorrow is a new day, a new year, and a new opportunity to make 2011 GREAT!!!

so I am sick!!!

and what does that mean to weight loss! NONE boo!!! When I am sick I start eating, thinking well these warm soup will make me feel better, sniff sniff, ok I guess crackers will, cough cough, open the fridge and figure out what might make me feel better. I continue to do this tell I feel better, so boo!!! I was OP (on plan) tue, wed, thur, and friday and saturday just ate trying to feel better, well guess what it is Sunday and I am still SICK!! I decided enough is enough, got off my butt made coffee and oatmeal tracked it and have started drinking water! go me!!! I still think there will be a loss on the scale at WW tomorrow because I am recovering from T-Day at Jens followed by my visit to San Diego! Now the trick question, do I sign up for a different gym in Eagle Pass, start using the elliptical at my work after I get off, or just come home to my own treadmill and tons of DVDs I purchased that still are shrink wrapped!!!

hmmm why does running have to be a love/hate relationship, thanks to Becky i joined other runners in Eagle Pass to run in the 5th annual Jingle Bell 5k. It was pretty fun, we got a jingle bell bracelet and those light up necklaces like you are at a fair. It was a dark run and after like 5 mins i wanted to stop running, gosh how lazy!!! i kept thinking how the hell am I going to run a marathon. oh ya if i train it will be ok! we have some fast runners here. i am glad i did it and I am signing up for another one tomorrow for Saturday on the AFB. oh which they have a bod pod now!!! i need to check into it, how cool!!! mmm well off to drink some water, and just have to mention my daughter is watching Eclipse ohhhhhhh JACOB YUM!!! lol

San Diego visit Dec 4-8, 2010

OK so I came to see my husband off on his 4th westpac, man what are we going to do with each other when we actually live together all the time??? Anyhow, as many of my friends noticed my ass has expanded to the size of oh about Texas!!!!!! Now most of friends have either gained or just stopped losing and WE all need to lose from 20-50+ pounds. And we all tell each other let's start eating better tomorrow and supporting each other with a healthier lifestyle. Well I would really like to see if we could actually support each other. My goal is to be 20 lbs lighter when I see my friends again in June as well as my HOT husband, which I have a surprise for him when I see him which requires us both looking AMAZING!!! So for my running friends I recommend The NON Runner's Marathon Guide for Women by Dawn Dais. AND dont forget June 5th, 2011 Rock n Roll San Diego!!! oh and Lose It is the app we are using to cheer each other on as we battle this weight loss!!!

gearing up for my trip to San Diego

Well I leave tomorrow for a 4 day trip to San Diego and I am trying to remind myself that this does not mean eat everything I see/want and not to spend money like its made out of water, when i go on "vacations" for some reason i feel this means swipe swipe swipe. needless to say worrying about my finances also makes me wanna chow down. anyhow I am posting today to mention a book I am reading. Its called The NON runner's marathon guide for women. Yes I have finished FOUR half marathons but still have yet to refind my mojo, even after signing up for 3 rock n roll halfs in 2011. I am on page 60 so far and enjoying what i am reading.
