New low, even for me.

This morning I weighed in at 178.4 lbs. I am SO happy. I thought my scale was broken and couldn't go under 180! I have been running a lot, even beat my personal best. My eating has been superb too. My absolute favourite is pizza, and the other night while the family had pizza, I had a bowl of cereal, after running! And another time, boiled eggs! So proud! I even turned down DQ ice cream cake at a recent birthday party! So needless to say.... I'M BACK!!!!!! I am so pumped! I am going camping for 10 days however, and it's always hard to not over indulge with hot dogs, S'mores and bacon and eggs, but I think I can handle it! I am going to ski my little heart out, jetski until my legs are rubber, and swim until I grow gills! And I'll bring my runners! Wish me luck.

On a roll!

That's right! 2 workouts in one day. I did my Jillian michaels DVD this morning, and it really kicked my butt! At dinner time I ate too much and felt gross, so I texted my "neighbor" and asked if she wanted to go for a run, and she said yes!! It was a major pain in the butt, I had to shower twice today, and now I'm in bed with wet hair because I don't want to blow dry it and wake the kids, but it's worth it!! Other than larger portions at dinner I have been eating really well, and hopefully the scale will show that soon! Emily is turning one September 8th, and on the 11th she is being dedicated at church. So my goal is to be as close to 160lbs as possible by then. So 22.8 lbs in 50 days..... Fun fun. Hopefully my friend will want to keep running with me and I can shed this weight and be in great shape to go water skiing all day next month! Lastsummer I was pregnant and couldnt partake in my favourite sport ever! I LOVE any and all water sport! And the yet before I was huge.. And couldn't ski for more than 2 minutes. This summer I will rock it!

I was just so excited that after all this time I have a running partner, and couldn't wait to share the good newsi am super sore now, and must go to sleep! Big day of shopping tomorrow, need my rest, it's not easy with 3 little kids!

I'm feeling hot, hot, hot!

Temperature wise. This week summer has arrived!! I definitly don't feel hot, as in sexy hot. More like a oompa loompa!! I am still struggling so much to get my exercise in, and even more so with the weather warmer. I can't just stick the kids in the stroller and go, and I can't run in the treadmill either since our house is too small, it doesn't fit. So I'm trying to figure something else out. But I'm not stupid either, I know weight loss isn't just about workin out. My eating has been pretty bad as well. Not horrible, but lots of room for improvement. I'm on the hunt for some new recipes. I am such a fussy eater an it makes it really hard to eat healthy and not get bored.

I have a new favourite tv show now!! Extreme makeover: weight loss edition. It's soooo good. Love it. If you haven't seen it yet, you should. The trainer is smokin hot too!
