I love Friday ... Don't you? I kinda dread it - getting on that scale, but I look forward to it too. And knowing that y'all are out there keeps me going. LOVE that accountability.

Speaking of accountability, do you have someone to keep you accountable? I hope that you do, it is the ONLY thing that has kept me going sometimes. If it were not for Dedra, I would probably have given up long ago. Her texts, phone calls, messages and words of love and encouragement have kept me away from chocolate, gotten me out to run, helped me walk away from the fridge and basically seen me through more times than I can count. LOVE that girl! And then there is my sweet Shauna, if I did not know that she was gonna come walking through my front door every morning, I cannot tell you how many times I would've just turned off the alarm and rolled over. But she comes, I get up and we work out. Oh, yes we do...

So, this week we started week four of the C25K program - we honestly cringed and almost cried when we found out how long we were going to have to run this week. But we agreed to try it ... and we DID it. On day ONE. You should've seen us celebrating and high five-ing right there in the middle of the street! We were so very excited. We've also upped our continuous laps in the pool and are able to get through complete DVD's with no breaks now. It is AMAZING how our bodies are adapting. We marvel at the fact that we have both ALWAYS been consumate avoiders of exercise in ANY form, now here we are, six times a week, out there working our hineys off ... literally.

So, how are YOU doing? How can we help each other get through this? How can we help YOU?

  1. I don't even want to think about stepping on the scale this week. I was on a paupers diet this week and I can physically feel it! Plus, it was my birthday recently so I had a few sippy-sips if ya know what I mean, and of course a Starbucks (or three).
    Accountability...yes and no, I have my gym buddy...but she will talk herself out of working out and sneak me a call to let me know, and well...if she doesn't go, I don't go. Then, I have my bff who is doing the tri with me next Sunday, but she was out of town this week and I have self-motivation I've done nothing.
    You are doing such a great job! Thanks for posting these 'cause I certainly need them to remind me that we're all in it for the long haul.
