Congratulations!!! That's so great! What a wonderful thing to be invited to do. I've been inspired by so many leaders at WW over the years - congratulations on joining their ranks!

Fantastic. If the support you give your paying customers is anywhere like as good as the support you give on here, you will be a very popular leader in no time!!

I was careful to read our "internet policy" and such to make sure that my participation in these threads was still okay. It seems like as long as I publicly acknowledge my role with WW and I state that my opinion is JUST THAT...."MY OPINION" and not the opinion of WW, I will be all set!

Congrats on the offer. There was never any doubt in my mind that you wouldn't get that job. You are a natural at it. I am very glad that you can stay on here just to be the big supporter that you have always been.

Congrats on your daughter's choice.

Congrats that is so awesome. I have found so much support from my leaders and you have provided me so much support on this board that I think you are going to be an amazing fit.

Popping in at the end of the challenge, seems to be my MO lately.

I'm totally off kilter but I do have an excuse! LOL
DH took last week off and we have been in Home Renovation Hell since then. We completely redid our room from the ground up, and we tore out the bookcases in the boys room and built new. I have painted, moved furniture, taken furniture out and put new in. I am so beyond tired it is not even funny.
We ate 1 home cooked meal last week, it has been hard on me emotionally and physically.

Today I have started to put my house back together again, DH left for DC today so that is making it easier. But DS12 was home sick today so I didn't get everything accomplished that I wanted to or needed to.

I'm ending April on a rough note physically but not mentally. I've decided to do the Glass Slipper Challenge at the Princess 1/2 in Feb. So May 1, I start a new training program to accomplish both.
I know I can do to the 10K, easily so I'm going to focus my efforts on the 1/2.

So, I'll jump over to the May Challenge and pick up where I left off.

I wouldn't sweat it to much. We did the race a few years ago and the crowds weren't noticeably heavier, and it was Mother's Day weekend too.
The race is at night so it won't impact travel.
And we actually switched from All Star Sports to AKL.

WOW! Wanna come tackle my "to do" list? I'm feeling CRAZY pressure right now with DD's graduation coming up quickly!! I'll bet all of that work makes the place look GREAT!!

Not sure what the "Glass Slipper Challenge" is exactly, but it sounds like maybe a combined double race weekend.... 10K and half?? What a great goal!

******************

Happy sunny Tuesday my friends! Welcome to the final day of APRIL!! I cannot believe how this month flew by!!

Thanks for all of your kind words about my new job! You guys are definitely the encouragement and boost I need to put my mind in the right place and be SURE that I know what I am doing!!

I am skipping my final Bible study of the season this morning to get some stuff done around here. I am a bit sad about it, but since it is a season-ending brunch, at least I know I won't have to make lots of food decisions this morning!

I have one last load of laundry to hang today and then I will be raking, seeding, etc around the yard. I'm going to wear gloves today to avoid more blisters though.

I am using last Friday's weight as my final weight for April and as such I am pleased to say I am down a bit for the month and just .1 away from my maintenance range. Hoping to get to the BOTTOM of my maintenance range before I head to Disney in (probably) late May. Otherwise most of my summer shorts will probably be snug.

Off to check emails before starting my chores. TTYL.................P

Keeping my fingers crossed it is not too crazy
Getting our final packing done today then off for a 6am flight!! Hoping we don't get as much rain as predicted while we are there..,

Pamela, sorry to hear about your uncle. But you have a lot to celebrate, too, with your DD's college choice and your fabulous new job! I know you will be a success and the timing works great for you.

Kim, sounds like the CrossFit is great and challenging! I bet that you will be raring to go by the time the next class rolls around.

Jen, I think you will be fine since it is the smallest RunDisney race. You won't even know it is going on when you are at Animal Kingdom Lodge. I love that Lodge -- the ambiance, the animals, the beautiful architecture! Have a great time!

Thank you so much for hostessing this month!

I was glad to take a little break from weighing in and I still finished down from the start at April -- take a few minutes and enjoy your successes and accomplishments in April before you make your plan of attack for May!

Congratulations to everyone for sticking with it through the whole month!

Thanks to all the hosts for this month.

Unfortunately, I ended on a bad note. I am going to go back to NOT tracking my calories and just track sat fat, sodium, and cholesterol. For whatever reason that system works better for me.

So onto May.
