    Hey everyone!

    Kristin, I'm glad you're feeling better. Teething is a toughie, and when YOU'RE not feeling well either!...


    Amy, GOOD FOR YOU. You are doing so great!

    Tamm, I loathe gains but you've got the best attitude out there :heart:

    Cathy, I'm glad to hear the good news!

    Lula, good for you for doing well with your workout!

    Tiff, yay for good days!

    That's what I've got for now :smile:

    I haven't weighed in in DAYS. Partly because I keep on being out to the gym before I have a chance to weigh in the correct conditions and I'm not going to weigh in unless I haven't had any water, etc. I doubt I've lost anything (Verda, I'm sadly with you on the PMS / easter egg debaucle) but I've been at the gym a lot so it's not as bad as it could be. However, I would like my gym time to be PRODUCTIVE and not just staving off gains from complete lack of control with easter candy! Geez...
    But I'm pumped up because yesterday I had another person at the gym see me in the change room and we got into a conversation and she was saying that they would "love to have me on the team" and saying how well I do in the classes. The other day an instructor came up to me after BodyPump and asked me if I used to teach it. lol There's a workshop in May for a new class that is being launched here and the woman who spoke with me yesterday encouraged me to get my cert before then so they can take me with them. I'm feelin' the LOVE! hehehe

    We're camping this weekend so I won't be on but I had to check in! xo KEEP IT UP LADIES! and Cathy, I love the suggestion of "springing sixers"

    Just dropping by! Ran TWICE TODAY TOO!!! GOOOOO MEEE! Today I did 7 miles in all. :-D Very tired now. May try doing crunches later. :-) Burned like 1100 cals today!

    p.s. I have been running BEFORE school and then again when I get home. If it keeps being super hot I may just run in the am and do a video in the afternoon because I was SOOOO thirsty on my afternoon run!
    Ok gotta shower and study!

    So proud of all of you sixers!

    Lula- Good job on meeting your goal. Fitness where you can FIT it in! YAY

    Cathy- Love the new motivational picture!

    Amy (Baha)- Love the new picture and the confidence. Go girlie! YAY. You are going to keep removing that weight I can tell

    Tiff- You are a running machine. So what are you trying to ERASE this time. LOL

    Rhiannon- Weighing in sometimes can be for the birds. Best wishes and thanks for the kind words

    Hey Sixers! Sorry it takes me so long to respond to you all. I'm having mini stress sessions daily but I'm sticking to eating healthy and working out. Trying to fight back that cortisol. It kills my results but I'm gonna win anyway! Today I did an amazing class. Then I followed it up with weights!! YAY. Off to rest. Off for a few days. More chats to come.

    Have a good evening!

    Morning all!

    I think my brain is more ready for good weather than my body. I have been extremely accident prone for the past couple of days. Two days ago, my daughter accidentally ran over my left ankle with a shopping which resulted in embarrassing pain and pretty near rolling on the floor in Target. Then yesterday with the whole getting bit by a branch while running. Yesterday, took my girl and her friends for a walk, telling them to be careful by the stream, and I ended up falling on my right side hard (they described it as a THUD rather than a slide). But fortunately, after two hours of rolling skating last night with them (I might be getting a little old for that as is evidenced by my inability to deal with stairs this morning), I didn't fall. But when I was taking a shower last night and shaving my legs, I realized I look like a battered wife with all the bruises my legs and arms are covered with and a slightly black eye. Bring it on Spring.

    Have to get to personals later as my fingers have now cramps up :)

    Have a wonderful Friday everyone.

    oh my lula maybe you better stay in bed under the covers for a day. i know what you can tell people... "this is what happens when you fall off the diet and exercise runs over your behind"......

    treadmill done, 3 cups water down.

    going to dollar store and goodwill, looking for bikes for the girls to keep here.

  • drtammdrtamm Member Posts: 427 Member Posts: 427
    Hey Sixers! I'm back on my original computer and I'm loving it! Lets hope it will last me a few more months until things are more settled in my life. Can you believe that I am actually still trying to focus on my fitness goals and nutrition goals in all this craziness? I know why I am .... I've made it such a part of my everyday life, it feels weird not to drink water or find workout time. Now the scale is still being ugly to me but I'm ready to keep trying!

    Lula- I'm sorry accidents keep finding you. Things will get better. I think I would have rolled in the floor too!

    Cathy- I'm glad you are using your treadmill. I see that you got it all together. Good job I'm so happy for you! :)

    B!- Glad you had fun and your phone is a trooper. LOL

    Amy - You are doing more than I would have tried. LOL.

    Kristin- Hope you are feeling better

    Well I'm off to pay some bills and retur n things to the store and then see my childhood best friend. ttyl

    Love ya,
