Thank you, than you, thank you!!!
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!
As long as you are still trying, you are doing great! It is when we give up that we fail!
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.
Oh my my..... I've been a busy bee this morning! I cut down and dragged away about 20 small trees plus raked and seeded a section of the front yard. I am dirty and filthy and sweaty and I'm off to pick up the kids at school. Hope I don't see anyone I know!!
I'm calling this my exercise for today.... both cardio AND weight training! TTYL................P
Pamela~so sorry about your uncle. Congrats on the new position! You'll be great
I was doing so well this April & then I ate some pizza & gained some of my loss back. It's not a lot, but it feels like it when I need to lose those last 5-10 pounds. So, even though I'll have a loss overall for April, I'm bummed that I can't even splurge on some yummy carby pizza without gaining. Bah!
On a happy note, I've exercised everyday since April 6 when I joined the 30 Day Shred challenge. I met & exceeded my goal for the exercise thread as well, so I am thrilled about that. I'm signed up for the May exercise thread already. It's highly motivating if anyone new wants to check it out. You set a goal for the month in minutes & post your updates along the way.
I crossed about half the things off my to do list today at work...yay! I got 2 new students with IEPs and if course one is due Friday. I told my boss that there's no way that's going to happen! Luckily, I can do it next week, but I just met the girl & now I have to make up goals for her? Guess I'll be using her old goals & tweak them.
Okay...I've rambled enough. I have to run & get DSs ready for soccer. It's 71 degrees so I'll be walking a bit while they practice Have a great night.
Jill! Is that not the truth!! It's amazing how just one slice of a pizza can cause my body to just go into pizza shock!! But, you know all that hard work with 30DS is also building muscle and you must not neglect that could also affect your scale...
I am going to weigh in tomorrow for May's weigh in, my official goal ends May 6th since I started 30DS same time as Jill...want to give myself 30 days of working out to see how it helps the scale...
But I'll be back and post my losses for April in the morning!
Super job coaches and all encouraging losers!! It is a blessing to see such support and feel encouraged by those going through the same struggles!!
Our progress post has been completed! Exciting that some of us did so well! and for those of that have struggled this month, tomorrow is a new day (and a new month!)!
I has a really great day... Mommy day at school for my kindergartner and her teacher put on a luncheon for us, very sweet! And since I took the day off for that, I was able to get to the Y for the 4th day in a row, a great way to end the month, especially after I did not really want to go... But I got in a great workout and got to swim with DD. Plus DF took DS to a baseball game tonight for a father/son activity put on by the school. Very cool And, if I get up and get some wiifit time in (25 mins) before bed I will meet my goal on the exercise thread this month! Which I am proud of considering all the slacking I did this month!
Anyway, see you all in May... oh how I love me a fresh thread!
Thanks so much for keeping track for everyone!
Does anyone else see the wish green as black?
Is it just the green you can't see? Because none of the colors show on mobile devices...
Thank you Amanda for hosting and to all our coaches for keeping us going this month. We will ROCK May!
Just the green. I'm using my phone and can see all the rest.
Busy, busy, as usual!
Hope you took photos at the Mommy day event! My kids had something like that in preschool (Ladybug tea for Mother's day) and I treasure the photos!
