I was totally having a gurgly belly today and couldn't figure out why until DD asked if it could be from nerves and I realized she was totally right!

I've got a great outfit picked out for each day, so hopefully that will give me a little boost of confidence.

I will try to pop on in the morning after my exercise time! Not sure if there is a coach scheduled to start tomorrow or not. I'll have to check page one. TTYL..........P
Good Luck and extra pixie dust for a ! as the others have said you are motivation here on screen so I can only imainge how great you are in person!

QOTD for Friday, April, 26, 2013:

What makes YOU nervous? Meeting new people? Trying something new? Driving in a strange city? How do you get past the feeling?
ALL of the above make me nervous! I just do it - I have figured even though it makes me want to die inside that the most someone is ever going to do is NOT like you, big whoop, when you are meeting new people.. as for trying new things - my weight has held me back and now that its going bye bye I am trying and doing new stuff.. Driving in a strange city - as a single Mom for 10 yrs with kids in sports you just have no choice and hope for the best when you are just not that good with directions LOL .. I just push thru and get on with it.. sometimes I feel like this and sometimes I feel like HAAA .. great question - thanks for filling in today

But I am going to finish it and then seriously re-evaluate some of my fitness goals. I did have a massage for my back and while I feel very beat up (it was painful a couple of times--but in this case that's a good thing) I am moving a little better today.
Good luck Rose with both the race and the Pooper!

YOU'RE nervous?? If only those WW people saw how motivating and encouraging you are here, they would have made you a leader a long time ago! Don't sweat it chica, you will blow them all away!

Being around wealthy people. Not that it's a common occurrence by any means, but whenever my non-profit group does events with groups like the Miami Heat, I always get fidgety and tongue-tied and feel like the world's biggest dork. I have no idea why, I just start noticing how non-designer, non-bling, and temporarily non-confident I am. And since I'm the public relations coordinator for the group, that is a BAD thing! Once I get the idea back in my head that it's my job to schmooze these people and hopefully get them to open their wallets, I regroup and get back to it, albeit still not at my usual level of confidence. Small talk is a concept that is SO far beyond my comprehension and something that is such a huge element to PR!!

Been MIA a few days with a bug. I think it is getting better finally.

Liz, I'm glad you had a great time on vacation and congratulations to you and your DH for taking on the Dopey challenge! You go, girl!

Amanda, thanks for hostessing this month!

Pamela, good luck on your training! I'm sure you will do a great job! And you are going to WDW! That will be so much fun with your DD before she begins her college adventure.

Rose, good luck at the Derby Half this week-end!

Thanks for filling in the coaching today and all week, Pamela!

I still get the heebie jeebies when I go to court -- you would think about more than 20 years it would get easier, but nope. I just fake it 'til I make it, baby! That works for a lot of things!

Have a great day and finish strong!

Love this question. Loved reading everyone's replies. Honestly, everything makes me nervous--though I am getting a little better. The funny thing is, I did not used to be like this. A combination of events really threw me for a loop about 20 years ago, and I don't know what happened. Then the brain fog and the inability to get out a sentence for a while there didn't help. I think the worst thing about being so nervous is that people mistakenly think you are a snob and aloof. When really you are just anxious. I am trying harder to not let my anxiousness run my life.

Hope everyone is having a good Friday. The dog kind of slept--about 5.5 hours. So I am having a little chip binge and then I'm taking a nap. I did run two miles and go to yoga. Yep, just a little (haha) nervous about the race tomorrow. I just want to finish without a new injury or a ton of pain. I am determined to re-commit next week to healthy choices.

Pluto--how is cross fit? Have you started?

Lisa--glad you are feeling better.

Rose-I know what you mean about people thinking you're a snob. If they only knew it was all about anxiety and shyness!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you tomorrow. They were talking about it on the news last night due to the increased security at these types of events. They've started the Mercedez Benz Corporate Series down here and this week's 5k was in Miami. They asked all of the runners to not bring anything - backpacks, duffle bags, etc.

Did you look in to the calming herbs for the pooch?

I go to my first CrossFit class tonight and I'm excited about it. The DH was actually going to go with me, but now he came down with the same bug I had a couple of weeks ago. AND he may have strep on top of it! I'll let you know how it goes.

Going back to the chiro today, whom I haven't seen in forever. Hoping maybe she can perform an IT miracle! Have a great weekend everybody!

Seeing my friend after not seeing him for a few days. It goes away as soon as I'm around him. The first little while though I act kid of standoffish and put off. Lol. Have to keep some dignity y'know. Don't even try to figure it out--it's a very weird relationship.

I'm up a few pounds. It's a few days before my period so I'm sure that's something to do with it but not working out all week last week probably had something to do with it as well. I also haven't been on track with eating very well-- eating healthy, but eating Alot of healthy lol.

My daughter finally left her boyfriend. I'm confident it's for sure this time, she's with friends so that's really good. The kittens are flipping adorable--so tiny but fully functioning kittens at this point. Hazy even went potty in the litterbox yesterday, finally decided it was for something other than eating...Misty is learning to accept the other cats around them, I've had to be firm with her and tell her no, even had to get the spray bottle involved but is definitely better. I felt bad because it's just natural instinct but she takes it too far and I'm afraid they won't socialize with the other cats because of it.

Well-- better go if I'm gonna do it at all today. TTFN

Thanks! There was actually a sign up last night at the front of the expo saying absolutely no bags on the course except camelbacks and that bag check was still going to happen, but it is at a location away from the course. It is a little unnerving, but part of the reason I decided to go ahead and do the race despite the fact that I am grossly undertrained, is that we need to do things despite our fears and we need to show that the bad guys don't win.

The vet gave us a supplement that is supposed to be a natural calming kind of thing, but I'm not sure it's working. I need to pull up the link you posted again.

Hope your dh is feeling better.

I recommend a deep tissue massage. I felt bruised (still do) but I have a much greater range of motion. I go back in about 10 days for more torture.

Have fun at the class!

As the DH would say, if all else fails, try a little Crown. As in Royal. May be just what the pooper needs!

The doctor put him on those blasted antibiotics, but if he does have strep I guess it's all you can do. Thanks for the well wishes though!

I've been thinking about the massage thing as well. Now if I could just build another 3 hours into my day.....

Rose, hope you had a great race today.

Kim, how was your first Crossfit class? Hope the chiro helped you, too.

Susan, glad that kitties are all doing well and your DD is in a better situation now!

Helen, for great exam results soon!

Jen, so nice to see you! You have had one heck of a time with your poor arm. Have a wonderful time at Disney!

Well, taken the advice of last weekend to ditch the baggy jeans, so I am now the proud owner of a pair of SKINNY jeans for the first time in my life!!! Also decided it's time to start showing my legs, so bought some fake tan too!!! (They're so white at the moment you wouldn't believe!!)

Went out for lunch today, but still made healthy choices, grilled chicken breast with a baked potato and peas, the 2 massive helpings from the salad bar. I did cave to some blue cheese dressing, but did count the syns and I'm still inside for the week! In fact OH and I are still so stuffed that we don't want any dinner tonight, it's already gone 8:00pm here, so I'm sure not cooking now!!

We stopped off at Makro (Kinda like CostCo) on the way home and I got 2.6kg of fresh chicken breast for £10.49......really good price. Guess we'll be having chicken a lot this coming week!!!! I've frozen some, but am going to do a salad with buffalo chicken tomorrow.......managed to lay my hands on a bottle of Franks Wing Sauce too.

Hope you're all having a good weekend......I'm hoping to wake in the morning in time to go for a walk/possible jog in the local park. Only cloud on the diet horizon at the moment is that our friends just got back from Fort Myers and have brought us a massive box of Cheez-Its (which are my absolute favourite American snack).........I'm afraid to open them because once I start eating, I don't think I'll stop until theyre gone.....I calculated the syns....97 in the whole box and I'm only allowed 105 a week!!!!!

I had a great race today! It was my second slowest time ever, but all in all I felt really good about it. The weather was great (50s and overcast). I had been doing walk breaks, but had decided to just run this one nice and slow and steady without the breaks and see how it went. I did walk at the water stops--otherwise I tend to get water up my nose. haha. Anyhow, at the half way point we were averaging an 11:28 mile and ended up with an overall average of ~11:19 mile. We passed so many people during the last mile which was nice for a change.

I have not felt good about a race in so long. I seriously thought this might be it for me. It was really great to just run and not worry about the beeps for walk breaks, or getting a pr, etc. I do feel a bit beat up and my itband was talking at the end, but all in all feeling pretty good. I think getting that massage last week was the best thing I have done in so long. I go back in about a week for another one. Hopefully the back will cooperate this week.

The vet told us to try benadryl for the dog tonight. Then if that doesn't work they are going to give us a prescription for something.

Tomorrow the plan is to meal plan and get back on track.

Have a great Saturday!
