Lifetime Member!

It feels like every time I go to write a post I am apologizing for being away for so long!  I really want to start posting a couple of times a week - you wouldn't think it was this hard, but geesh it really is! 

A little update on me - last Wednesday I earned  my Lifetime Member award at Weight Watchers.  My mom came and crashed our meeting because she was so excited for me!  So, there I was with Melissa on one side and my mom on the other.  My meeting leader Jaime is awesome - she was so happy for me!  I told the people at the meeting a little about my journey and what got me to Lifetime status.  I really felt proud in that moment - everyone was looking at me, just like I used to look at Lifetime members, and looking forward to the day that they get to stand up in front of the room and tell everyone how much they have lost and how they did it.  I still have about 5-6 pounds that I would like to lose (still well within my healthy weight range) and then at that point I think I would be content with what the scale says and the tag on the inside of my shirts and pants!  Hopefully that doesn't sound too vain - but it's honest!

Total Weight Lost:
     69 pounds (so far)












I have been running a few times a week and I recently started throwing in the Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 DVD.  I had neglected the DVD/strength training portion of my workouts for quite some time while I was concentrating solely on running.  My friend Alexa posed a challenge on Twitter one night to do The Shred for 30 days (at least three times a week).  I gladly accepted as I need the motivation and accountability!  So far so good! 

I am also playing around with changing the name of my blog and my twitter handle in the very near future.  I am wanting to make the name of my blog more healthy lifestyle focused as that is what I would like to write about the most from here on out.  And once that name change is done I am also toying with moving this little blog of mine on to Wordpress and buying myself a domain!  I am getting all grown up over here! 

With the holiday weekend quickly approaching I am working on staying mindful when it comes to eating and working out.  I have had a few instances lately when I have eaten things that just haven't been on my radar as of late and I feel really gross afterwards.  I need to keep that feeling in the forefront of my mind as I continue to navigate this healthy lifestyle.  I am all for the occasional treat, but I also think a mindful treat is the best one!  One that I have planned for, not one that could potentially derail an entire day of goodness! 

Be happy and healthy friends!

Come back tomorrow - it's a very important day in our household and there are going to be a TON of CUTE PICTURES to enjoy!
