I'm PUMPED!! :)

Last night Miguel had decided that he DIDN'T want to get up early and go to the gym today. So I ended up going to bed REALLY late...around 3 a.m. And then this morning around 7:30, he comes to wake me up and asks if I still want to go to the gym. I was really sleepy, but I figured if he was willing to go, I should get up and make the most of it. So I hurried and got dressed as fast as I could. I HAD to flat iron my hair which he wanted me to skip and I was like "NO WAY" am I leaving this house and going to the gym with my jacked up hair! LOL (I went to bed right after I showered and my hair was CRAZY! lol) So, I did 30 minutes on the treadmill (we had other things to do today so we were trying to cut down to an hour instead of an hour and a half). And I ran 10 minutes again...yay! The same...two minutes minute or a minute and half there...I'm building up my endurance though which is good. And I know it's going to take some time, but it's going faster than it took me when I first started running years ago. My ankle was hurting a bit today, but I had to just get my mind off of it and push myself to keep going. I did 10 minutes on the elliptical afterwards then my arm weights and ab exercises. It was an AWESOME workout! I felt really good afterwards :) Oh and guess what?? I lost another 1.2 pounds!! My last weigh in was on Thursday, so in two days I lost that much more! I'm SO psyched about that!! I know it's the dieting...watching what I'm eating, cutting my portions WAY down and cutting out all the carbs. And honestly, I'm not even that hungry. It's made me realize that alot of my eating was simply out of habit or boredom or a thousand other reasons other than hunger. I think that if I keep to my diet and keep losing weight at this rate that I can get back down to my pre Mikey weight in like three months or so. I can't even imagine that. It's like it's been so long that I've been that size, I don't even know how I'd feel you know? It's exciting to think of it....I really,really want to get back there. I have vowed to myself that I am not going to slack off on my diet or exercise and that I WILL fit back into my size 10 jeans by the end of this year. I WILL, I WILL, I WILL :)

I managed to work on a page yesterday. It's a lift off of Kelly Goree's gallery on This puts my LO count at 66. I was wanting to scrap today, but I didn't get the chance. After the gym, we came home and had breakfast then Miguel, my mom and Mikey left to Home Depot to pick up a new washer my mom had bought. I stayed home and cleaned up a bit. After Miguel installed the new washer, he fired up the pit and bbq'd. He made me some YUUUUUMMMY grilled squash! I ate it ALL!! At least it wasn't anything bad! I could eat grilled squash every day!! Mikey swam in his little kiddie pool and we just sat outside for a while, but it's just too darned hot!! We started watching Angels and Demons, but Miguel fell asleep so I figured I'd just wait for us to watch it together. Anyway, that's about it. I'm pretty tired so I think I'll hit the sack. Mikey fell asleep on the couch around 9:00, so I should take advantage of this time. Miguel fell asleep on the other couch so I can get the bed all to myself for a while... :) Night!
