I've been wanting to come back here and update again, but I couldn't remember the link or anything, but I was getting ready to have my husband wipe out my laptop and update it, when I find it.

So much has happened in the 5+ years since I updated and I want to write about that, too.

I look forward to getting back to blogging again.

Getting ready to do this whole blog over.

Give me a little time.

It's coming.

My letter to WW

Dear Weight Watchers,

I've had such a love/hate relationship with you since I was 14 years old. That's almost 28 years if you are keeping track. Longer if you count when my Mom lost 90 pounds with  you when I  was 2 years old. That was back when you couldn't eat ketchup and you mixed tuna with mustard.

But, I digress.

However, I find that when I follow your program, something magical happens. I lose weight. Since Monday, I have lost 4 pounds just by counting those magical points you give. No exercise this week (yet) but I'm working on that.

So once again, I'm sorry for bashing you because I do know you work. You helped me lose 40 pounds when I was 14.. You helped me lost 67 pounds when I was 23 You helped me lose 137 pounds when I was 25 and you helped me lose 85 when I was 35. I know you work, yet sometimes I have to come back to you with my tail between my legs.

Not too mention all my friends and family you've helped over the years.

Maybe it's the commercials with Jessica and Jennifer.

Maybe it's the 15K I am running in July.

But something has clicked in me once again.

And I believe I've woken something my coworker, too. We just might lose the weight we both gained last year and kick it to the curb yet.

So, please forgive me. I know you work and I do love you. I just thought something else would be that "thing" for me last year and I am sorry.

All my love,

What I did last night

So. I think I sort of signed for a race last night. No, I don't THINK I signed up, I know I did.

I'm actually really excited about it. Not only does it give me something to train for over the next few months, but I also get to meet Suzi and Marissa. Plus there were other ladies there that I don't know but am looking forward to meeting.

The race is the Boilermaker and it's July 14th. That gives me PLENTY of time to train. I had less time to rain for my half marathon in 2011. I'm really excited and can't wait to get started.

What did you do last night?

Hungry for a Change

On New Years Day, the husband and I watched this movie on Netflix

It was really amazing and opened up my eyes on what I really have been doing wrong this past year.

In the movie, there was a man named Jon Gabriel who I had lost over 200 pounds WITHOUT DIETING and I was really interested in his book. So I ordered it. And I haven't been able to put it down.

EVERYTHING he says makes total since to me. I am so sick and tired of dieting. Honestly. I don't want to count points or calories anymore. So, we'll see.

Even you don't want to read the book, check out the movie. It really makes a lot of sense.

Happy 2013

The husband and I watched "Looper" last night. It was excellent. I also enjoyed the last of the junk food for awhile. 2013 I'll be eating clean again and start kicking my own ass.

I started off this morning with a little Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga. I made it to midnight last night for the first time in 3 years, so I slept in. I didn't feel like running outside in the freezing cold garage and I didn't really feel like heading down to the gym either, so I decided 60 minutes of some Bob Harper would feel good.

My stomach is already sore and I know tomorrow I'm going to really be in some pain. But, it's all part of kicking ass in 2013. 

Now, I'm just going to enjoy the rest of the day before I have to go back to work. But, I'm glad the mad rush for the end of the year is finally over and I'm looking forward to the slow down of January. 

What did you do today to work up a sweat?
What did you do last night to ring in the new year?
