no idea

what I am going to post about, but I thought it was time to update.

I thought I would start with birthday pictures!

YES! that is a cake, it was my yummy , worth every calorie , cause it was triple chocolate fudge cake. And the frosting is even better than the cake!
I woke up the morning of my birthday having lost 1 pound, pretty cool present if you ask me. I am here, one week later ( after eating cake ) down yet another pound. ( I have this odd thing that I dont record it till its been gone a week, just to make sure its really gone). So I can say ,that you can have your cake and eat it too!! When you work as hard as I have, yes you can!
I also got a little something that wasnt food, but I loved it just as much! I waited 40 years to get something in the little blue box!!

Onto fitness, my 10k is in a little over 8 weeks, I really really want to run it in less than 70 mins. I will be working on that over the next 8 weeks. I would like an 11 min mile. I am not a fast runner by any means, so I would be very happy with that!!!

March 16th , 2010

is my 40th birthday. Is the day that I have had in my head as a goal for the past 15 months. 15 months ago I made a choice to not have this day upon me , being 120 pounds overweight. I , for the first time in my life made a goal , and stayed with it. I am turning 40, not 120 pounds overweight, in fact, only 24 pounds away from my goal weight, and a size 10.
I feel better , healthier , than I ever ever have in my whole life. I do not mind turning 40 tomorrow, in fact, I am looking forward to the wonderful years my life will bring me now that I have this whole new fabulous life ahead of me!
My only regret is that I didnt do this sooner.

the time is going to go by, no matter what you do, dont waste it, take charge of your life now, you wont regret being healthy!

Shopping Fun!

I had the shopping day that I had been looking forward to for a long time on Saturday.
My friend Jenn and I celebrated my birthday a few days early, with a day of shopping and even eating , lol. we started out day at 8 am with an hour of cardio, then at 11 we were on our way to shop. First stop The cheesecake factory for lunch. we both had a salad with grilled chicken, then we shared two pieces of cheesecake, can I tell you how yummy they were?? it had been months and months and months that I had tasted something so sweet and yummy. Then we went out to the mall and I got some jeans, I tried on a size 13 ( we were in a juniors shop) and they were too big, so I got an 11. A size 11.
We shopped for new makeup, and then for new bras, my new size . 36 DD . at my largest , I was a 48 H .
Back for more shopping for clothes, I wanted new capris, and tried on several that were a size 10, but none thrilled me just yet that were that size.I did get two more pairs in the JRs dept size 11 , and I got a couple of tops. I had to take back what I said over and over again, 'just cause you can shop in the Jrs dept, doesnt mean you should'. But that was the only place I could find anything I liked!! I also got a new purse .
I wanted so badly to buy more clothes, but knowing I am not at my goal weight yet is stopping me.
I will post some pics of the new outfits when I wear them and take them.
