Copying Amy W.

Yep, I'm gonna do it. I was on the website half of a day yesterday printing out stuff. I am not going to buy the book unless someone suggests that it's needed. After Amy W.'s success, and others saying they probably will go for it, I decided why not. I will start on Saturday. I know that bucks the traditional start day of Sunday or Monday, but I have never been traditional ;-).

So you know I am taking swim lessons. They are going great. I normally take them on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, but this past Tuesday, my instructor had to cancel. So to not be outdone, I decided that I was going to get a "snatch my sexy back" aka workout, anyway that day. I went to a cycle class at the campus rec center and boy was it a workout. The guy that does the class is nice, not a tyrant. He is a former runner and a cyclist so he was coaching me, the newbie. I will tell you that I sweated some and had to stop at points because that little seat was hurting my butt. Ouch!! I decided that since it was just a 30 minute class I would do the abs class afterward. Let me tell you, I am sooooo paying for that today. My stomach is sore and tight (I guess that's a good thing). That class nearly killed me, but I persevered to the end though. The instructor (who was the same for both) told me he was proud of me. Most folk don't get through the cycle class the first time around. I want to try the kickboxing class next.

Can I just say that family wears on you. For those who are my Facebook friends you probably know that I stay upbeat and positive, at least I try too. The other day was a hard one. My younger sister had a miscarriage (she was 3 months) so I was up the night before half the night. I think I got about 4 hours of sleep. Not good. I feel for her, but honestly my sister is the LAST person that needs another child. Don't get me wrong I don't wish ill and I love my sister, but she is drama and not a good parent to the child she already has. It pulls on me because I always say I can't raise everyone's child. I was praying that God's will be done because I know what would ensue, if she had another baby. She has a 16 year old that is always in trouble and that she never pays attention too. Anyway, she is probably going to have a hysterectomy because she has two pretty big fibroids that are causing problems. Crazy part is that she could have had those fibroids removed years ago. I did (hysterectomy too) and I am great. I just had to vent for a moment. My family pulls on me a lot and I end up not getting sleep/rest and/or giving advice that is NEVER followed and they they come running back to me after the fact.


Have a great day and it is Thankful Thursday as Cee-Jay has deemed it.

I'm Thankful!!

I have been holding back a little on talking about atkins all the time on my blog bc I dont know if others will find it annoying...maybe I should blog about THAT....but I will tell you. I will have been on it 2 weeks come Monday and it is still the weirdest thing. Its weird not to watch calories and to be aware of carbs. Its weird that I have lost 9 pounds so far and that I am never hungry. And what is really weird, and I didnt realize it until reading blogs the other that I am not actually craving anything. Yes, I am tired of eating the same old same old...and I think about oreos in my head sometimes, but I am not LONGING for them. its so strange! You can email whenever you want (but you already know that).

once you get into past phase one you should look into the Adkins snacks. They are great and I love them. Good luck!

Thank you Amy and Tagyourit!!

Yes Amy please blog about it. I try not to eat sweets, but dang it....I can't even blame it on "that time of the month" anymore because I don't have those anymore.

@Tag, I'm going to look into those snacks you mentioned.

Girl, remind me to tell you about sisters that are dramatic, don't need more kids, had a miscarriage, and is now pregnant again, it will make your sis look like a princess! Hope the stress is dying down for you!
