Five Hundred!

He's not a new born anymore. They grow up so quickly. He's getting a cute personality and is truly a good baby. Gets alots of love for sure!

Holy cow! This is my 500th post. Really? That seems so weird. I never dreamed I could stick with this for so long. I love this blog and friendships I have from our little community.

Yesterday I walked the Heart Walk 5K. My father received a heart transplant years ago. He got the heart of a 20 year old Marnie who lost his life in a car accident. I have the obit. He passed away in 1996. He got a 7 year life extension. My husband died of a heart attack at age 36. I walked for both of them yesterday. My body held up and I could went farther. Glad that I didn't as by the night I was feeling achy in my legs and feet. Kind of like they are nervous. The walk was lots of fun and free stuff. I ate breakfast there before we headed out across the bridge. The pic is of my buddy and me pre-race.

I did go dress shopping. No dress but I did end up getting some really cheap stuff for next year. I then went and got something to eat. Came home got all already for some hulu and relaxation and forgot I was suppose to meet my friend for dinner so I can check out her new man. I was so full I was uncomfortable by the time dinner was over I wanted to barf. Sorry, sad but true. I am still full this morning. It's raining here, but I am going to try to get out some time today for a walk or a bike ride. I am feeling achy this morning. I hope I am not getting sick. I have been so lucky this winter. I have yet to get sick. Knocking on wood....

So I have heart disease in my family. I am still 50 lbs over weight. I thought alot about that yesterday. I wish I could light a fire under my ass. I am the only one who can. Looking at myself in the mirror over and over assessing myself in dress after dress yesterday was depressing as well. I am proud of that fact that I have still loss 80 lbs over all. Yet I want to finish what I started. I really do. Not for a wedding or an event, but for myself. It's so true for me that when I feel out of control it shows up on my body.

I know what to do. I just need to start slow. Start by drinking more water and walking more regularly. I think I am going to have to start walking after work if L.L. is going to be a nut job about me leaving. I have made a big pot of WW chili. I will get to eat all the fruit and veggies I can manage. Need to go stock up on that kind of stuff.

Want to go out and see the Gkids today, but we'll see. Gas is ridiculous so I am trying to cut back. 60 mile round trip. Ouch.

Have a great Sunday. Keep the mood and the food real......


  1. Girlfriend your right that you know what to do.You know how to eat, you know you have to move, drink water......But theres a big leap between knowing and doing....huge.....Until your ready to jump just keep fakin' it til you make! Hugs girl i have no doubt you will soon get your head where it needs to be.....Hmmmm something to might be a good idea to get back in good walking shape before the hot weather comes........just sayin'.....I use that one on myself all the time. :) deb

  2. Z baby is adorable! I can't believe how fast he is growing. You are right, he doesn't look like a newborn anymore.

    I had hoped you would find the perfect dress on your first try out, but alas, was not to be.

    I hope your Sunday is wonderful, no matter what you do.

  3. What a cute little gkid :) So great you walked for your dad and husband and for heart disease. You do know what to do for yourself to get the weight off. I've always said that it's about where we are mentally. Sounds like you are back in a good place though so now is the time to light that fire. You can do it, you've proven that to yourself over and over again with so many things in your life. Here's to a renewed start. *hugs my friend*, I'm glad you're here with me, for me. You're great!!!!!!!!!

  4. Hey there, I just did my 500th post a few days ago too! Congratulations.

    80 lbs lost is still great, and I know you can do the last 50! Just do what you know works for you.
