Yay for you and mom!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you too.

Still not feeling great today and avoiding the gym. I also was out around lunchtime and got myself into a Panera situation. I wanted soup and not lettuce and so I got chicken noodle soup and half tomato and basil panini. Not great choices but I didn't eat most of the broth and skipped the side of bread and pulled off one side of the panini bread so only one piece of the panini bread was eaten.....could have been much worse!

Hope everyone had a good day!

Getting to that point where I'm doing more running then walking so it won't be long now. Now I want donuts! digiMom: I hope you feel better soon. DisMom1981: Congrats! I love seeing the number on the scale going down. Have a great day everyone.
Great job! What 5k app are you using?

I think it's awesome that you and your mom are in it together. Hope WW scale was good to you both!

The app is called 5K Runner at the AppStore. It's gold colored and you can download a free one first and then buy it for $2.99. You will have to transfer over your info from the free one to the other one but it's only the first week or so.

I heard ice cream is good for you because your body has to use calories to warm it up

It's a loss and not a gain. Keep up the great work!

Thanks! Your right! It is great to see a loss! Small or large a loss is a loss. I have been thinking about what I have done different and I figures it out... I haven't taken my water bottle into work at all this week. So I have not drank any water at all really. Here's to a week with more water!

Well, this has been a rough few days. Ive experienced severe side effects from some medications I'm taking leaving me with severe heart palpitations, insomnia, restlessness, and breathlessness. It's now day 4 with these side effects and things don't feel like they're getting much better. It makes my days very - interesting.

I've been making a point of maintaining proper body posture as much as possible. I figure even if I can't work-out (Can't do anything that might raise my heart rate any more) I can at least work on improving my body in other ways. I have been doing some yoga, but can't do any inversions right now.

But the good news is the side effects point to my not needing the meds anymore - which is good b/c I've had to stop them completely.

I'm doing 5K Runner free right now, but I'm going to buy the 10K Runner because I have to run a 10 mile in a few months and the 5K is included in that one. Anyway, it's an awesome app! Very happy with it! Good luck on your goals.

This whole time I thought I've been using couch to 5k but I guess I really have 5k runner. What I don't like is it gets which day I'm on messed up. Does anyone else find that? If I don't keep track separately- I'd be all over the place with which workouts I was doing since every time I open the app it's on a different workout than it's supposed to be.

Countdown: 21 Weeks to August 1st!

Let it go, let it go!
Can't hold it back any more.
Let it go, let it go!
Turn away and slam the door.
I don't care what they're going to say.
Let the storm rage on.
The cold never bothered me anyway.

~Queen Elsa

A little something to help us all get through Friday!
