    Good Morning, Sunshines!!

    @Kayak97- Aww, I'll our cheerleader too, but I'm happy for her!! That's awesome!!
    @bpkal- I can't even begin to express how happy I am for you! That is such and accomplishment!!! Get it, Girl!!!
    @gethntysear- You've got a monster step count for this week!!! I have a fitbit zip and have been known to misplace it on occasion. Seemed like I lost it every other day last week. LOL. I hope to have a step count like yours next week!!!
    @Serendipity0913- I love Love LOVE your poster boards!! I have 2 jars with pretty stones in them, one jar for pounds lost and the other for pounds left to lose! I'll be updating them this friday with the weigh in!

    Today's plan of action is... 60 minutes of Body Beast, and go for a walk because it's gorgeous outside. I'll also be checking out a Pilates class at the local college this evening. I've never done Pilates and have minimal experience with yoga... So, this should be interesting. :persevere:
    Have a great day everyone!! Go Team, Die Lard!!

    @[email protected] love your vision board. I just made a weight loss vision board on a smaller scale and attached it to a mirror in my bedroom, so I can see I everyday.

    @misalillstead- I would love to lose 30 pounds "amount of cheese an average American eats in a year" for starters.

    What an amazing team! I love love all the positive encouragement and well wishes!

    @Serendipity0913 - Your goal boards are fantastic! I need to do some goal setting like that.

    @misalillstead - Hilarious! What a great visual. I think I'll add a bale of hay to the middle of my goal board!

    The 140 pounds of sugar a year is enough to make me re-commit to giving up sugar! It's surprising it adds up so fast.

    Happy Tuesday team! Everyone is doing great already, so impressive!

    I'm happy for @chrizzy8, and wish her much success on her new team. I'm glad thry found her a spot, but I'll miss her!

    I had a great run tonight, 4.15 miles, including running UP 2.5 of the 3 hills on the route. I'm pretty stoked and can't wait to see how much I'll improve this season.

    Lol, I still want to lose an elephants penis! Don't tell the hubs, he'll think I meant him (NOT!!)!

    Running 4 miles and uphill - TOTALLY AWESOME!! As a wanna-be runner, I imagine that feels like a huge accomplishment!

    ... I also drank 90 ozs of water today. Not a bad.

    Nice! I totally struggle with the water thing. I'm pretty much never thirsty so I forget to drink. It's weird but true.

    I drank over 8 glasses of water yesterday, I was on a roll. I am going to try to do that at least everyday if I can. I found if I start in the morning in my car on my hour long ride to work I get 3 glasses down by the time I get to work.

    Plus I finally got up for my workout alarm today and just didn't turn it off and turn over. I feel much better today and more energized.

    I struggle with water too @dixedreg. Unless you count coffee... otherwise 32oz is a good water day for me. :s

    Thanks @bpkal! I started "running" last summer at 345#. I'm still really slow but both my pace and distance are improving. I've yet to run a 5k race but looking forward to it. And then a 10k, 15k and a half. Bucket list items!

    @MimiOfTheLusciousLawn-that was an awesome run. I started C25K on Monday with my sister ( she seems to be talking me into a lot of stuff lately :) and I was exhausted lol. I will be doing Day 2 tonight at the gym.

    @dixedreg-I don't like water, but I have learned to drink it. I do like Nestle water with a splash of lemon, the lemon is not overbearing.

    @schmitz17 - good job on the water and getting up for your workout. I start drinking water on my commute to work also.

    I drank 96ozs of water yesterday, no gym, but did squats throughout the day and a little running in place. I will be going to the gym tonight and hopefully 96ozs of water today.

    Have a great day everyone!!!!
