It's Two Miles and I'll Take It!


Yeah! Drum roll in my head right now.....

I am back on the monster (my not-so-loving pet name for the treadmill). Triumphantly finished two miles. I have been at my half way point in this weight loss (baby fat I call it nicely) goal for a long time. The last two months have been distracting! Yesterday I turned our last school stuff to the teacher, today I fill out paperwork for next year and I can turn to other goals! I was so glad to walk just the two miles!

My friend and neighbor, Shonda, is starting the Arbonne system too. She wanted to set up a wager and so we have. Four week challenge, winner gets 80 bucks, looser gets 20. That way, the looser does not get discouraged and is somewhat rewarded too! I'm happy to say, the eight week challenge in January really worked great for me (lost 19-20 lbs) and I won it! So, my prize that I picked was 150$ worth of Arbonne product. We started the new challenge today.

Good news is that in this time I have not gained anything except some water weight. That's encouraging and speaks much of the Arbonne system. (ask me if you have questions) Yet, a key ingredient for me is the exercise. It's crucial.

After we break in July and half of August (we are supposed to be going on vacation...if our car gets fixed well enough), we start another four week challenge. I have about 20lbs to go to my final goal. It feels good to say it's only 20 lbs.

(post-baby i'll ask you about the arbonne system. right now it's all about weight gain, unfortunately... or fortunately, depending on how you look at it!)

I got a package from Julie yesterday. It had some books, clothes, and some danko shoes in it. Do you know any one that wants some shoes?
