Day 92 Hot 100 Udate and Backwards As Always!

The Hot 100 is still in full swing and I am cruising along so far. I am especially proud of my no white bread or white bread pretending to be wheat bread rule. I had a bit of a problem at first, but I am under control with it. I have done at least good and possibly even really good with the eat more vegetables goal. Kathy must have had that one on her mind before I even set it, because we have been eating the heck out of them for supper lately! I am really getting a taste for fresh veggies as opposed to canned veggies too. MMM MMM!! My get to 240 pounds goal is looking like it may get amended to get to 230 possibly. It will depend on the next weigh in. I am still a work on progress on the 5k time being under 40 minutes. I am going to try working on that in the morning or maybe on Sunday morning. Which leads me to the Backwards as Always part of the title. I have lived my life backwards it seems, always doing the things I should have done early on, I do them later in life. So it is fitting that I took my usual Friday off from working out, only to be sore by that afternoon! Leave it to me to get sore on my day off of working out! So depending on my status tomorrow morning, I may switch Saturday to my just finish the 5k and jog on Sunday.

I had a great Friday night ya'll. We went to the Van Buren High School Homecoming game tonight with some friends and all our girls. It is great to have a big group to hang out with and watch football. And I get as much of a kick from watching Lauren, Maddie, Allison, Amanda and all the other girls all thinking they are big girls cause we let them go down and hang out by the fence and socialize with all their friends from school as I do watching the game. I am hoarse this morning cause our Pointers had a great game last night. I saw the prettiest blocked punt and return of the block for a touch down and I got so excited and wished we had replay at the stadium so we could see it again! Life has been good to me and I thank Him for blessing me so much. My God is an awesome God indeed!! I love that song so much because I feel that way so often! I have said it time and again, I know it was him who put Sean Anderson's blog in my path, made me actually click on a link, which I NEVER do in a news story, and gave me the motivation in my heart to get started on this journey I prayed for for so long! I can do all things through Christ!

  1. Shae, thanks for your comment on my blog, you gotta love all the extra connections this Hot100 is creating!

    I love your comment about making the excuse for an extra lap because i fund myself doing that too, runningborbrudingnthat extra little bit just to get the distance to a round number!

    Your comment about doing things later in life that you should have done earlier made mevthink too. My weight loss journey didn't start until I was mid-forties, so feel good that you're doing it younger than me!

  2. Sorry about the gibberish in previous comment, that was supposed to say "running or riding". Stupid iPad keyboard!
