Another quick one...

Life has been so busy lately - I'm sorry I don't have more time for a proper check in. I'm also really missing your blogs - I hope to have some breathing time this weekend to get all caught up!

I started my running clinic last Saturday - it was great. I almost chickened out at the last minute, but went for it anyway. There are three other ladies that are running with me - it was great. I think I'm going to sign up for my 5K this week - September 30th. Woo hoo!

Last week, I exercised 4 times - really good, hard, workouts. My diet has been really balanced too. And you know what? I see the difference -my skin is clear, my face is starting to change - I feel truly amazing.

The scale can always be our best friend our nemisis, right? Well, I've decided that since I've been feeling so good lately, I'm not going to weigh myself for awhile. I'm doing all the right things - the scale will reward me in time. I don't need to know right now - the physical changes are good enough for me.

I really hope that I'm finally on track - I haven't felt this good in so long. My heart is finally in it, and I'm in this for the long haul.

Oohhh I loved this post. Loving the attitude! And a great idea to stay away from the scale. It's amazing how it can bring me down in 2 seconds after a month of being happy and feeling good about myself.

We ARE in this for the long haul. We ARE going to do this.

Carson is blowing you kisses.

Congratulations to you for getting those workouts in and eating so well!! You sound like you are going gangbusters!!

We will make it to our goals. The road may seem to go on forever, but we're headed in the right direction!! :)

Ohhh Good for you!!! I feel so proud of you!! You're not letting the scale control you and you're certainly not letting it tell you how to feel about our body! Great job! You'll see mega results in other areas that are much more important!
I'm starting the C25K program soon so thanks for giving me the motivation to get my butt in gear and just do it already!!

Love that your heart is in it... 'cause it's one thing to have your mind, your legs, your shoes in it... it's another to have the biggest part of you in there for the long haul. :o) Super Girl Sonya.
