The Weekend Is Almost Here!

It's hard to believe it is almost Friday again and that Monday is the first day of September, seriously where does the time go. In December I'll be 2 years post-op. That just doesn't even seem real to me.

I've done good this week. I worked out hard Tuesday and today. Today I actually RAN 1/2 a mile without stopping! I was totally stoaked! I ran at 5 and at a 3 incline. I also ran another 1/4 of a mile before that, but the 1/2 mile was non-stop! I just couldn't believe I did it. Goal next week....maybe shoot for 3/4 mile. Who'd a thunk it! LOL

I didn't work out yesterday, but I cleaned my entire basement, with the help of the princess of course! I dusted all the furniture, pictures, counters, then windexed the glass, vaccumed, cleaned the 1/2 bath and straightened the couch cushions! Oh, also today in addition to working out, I dusted the office, dining room, entry way, and swept and vaccumed the hard wood floors in those rooms.

We have like 20 people coming over Monday for a BBQ so I'm trying to get the house in order so I don't have to worry about cleaning this weekend. I'm trying to meal plan for Monday so I can go to Sams Club to shop.

Haven't been on the scale in a few days, I think the last time I was on I was at 140, which is good, but dang I just would love to see 135 ONE time!!! My eating has been not so hot though, so guess that is what's holding me back. I need to get some protein, wish you could take a protein pill! That'd make life so much easier!

Have Belly Dancing again tonight...can't wait! Today is super work out day!

Hope you all have a nice long holiday weekend!
